Thanks for the post — lots of interesting info. But I’ll repeat something thats already been mentioned. DRIVE TRAIN & BATTERY REPLACEMENT — I get that you had an awesome experience with the service center and that it was quick and painless, but even a conservative estimation of the depreciation of the car would put this out of warranty cost anywhere between half to the entire value of a tesla when it is 8 years old, if not far more. How could anyone running this car as an economic function and not a 6 figure indulgence possibly justify that kind of money if its only going to be viable for 8 years?

I realize you paid nowhere near the new retail price but this still seems like a serious shortfall.

You said it was preventative: did Tesla proactively contact you and reccommend this or were there warning signs that it was going to be necessary and you simply did it before it needed to be done?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
