Part of this question is specific to northern Virginia Tesla MS owners. I am planning to take delivery on the vehicle in a few weeks:
-Best insurance plan? Geico gives an overall 10% discount if you enroll their umbrella coverage (about $200-250 a year), which can easily cover 10% of a multi-car insurance plan. Wondering what other companies people have gone with for the MS in northern VA.
-Best financing option? Based on other forum discussions, contacted Alliant, they offer 1.49% (!) with good credit, etc. Need to find out other terms of the loan. But what are your experiences?
-Ohmygosh the personal property tax year after year is going to be a XXXXX. Not a question. Just a comment.
-I will be applying for clean VA plates, but do we get any HOV access in MD/VA?
-Where did you take delivery of your vehicle? It bothers me that the buyback guarantee is valued at a couple hundred dollars on the Tesla website, but is only available through Tesla's financing. Tesla financing isn't available unless you take delivery in NYC/NJ. When I speak to Tesla they say don't worry about it, its not a big deal, but both in principle and as embedded insurance for resale, I think this is a big point Tesla is trying to minimize. For example- 3 years later we have electric cars from all the luxury makers that are just as desirable with 500 mi ranges... and the original model S suddenly isn't as desirable. The difference between a buyback and no buyback is huge.
Any other considerations for a Tesla MS in the northern VA/DC/MD area?
