We have been looking for a model X (We have a Model 3 over 2 years now) this would be a second larger car for eventual commute to work and occasional trips as the 3 is a bit cramped with 4 ppl and luggage.
Unless I am wrong after looking all over buying used from Tesla seems to be the best deal. The prices on the Tesla web seem to be very similar to the prices from any other car dealer or person. From what I see you have no doubt when buying direct from Tesla that you are getting the warranty. Seems when buying elsewhere you will get the balance of the factory warranty at best and there are a lot of scammers posting Tesla’s for sale.
I think based on my budget 60k ish a 2017 or newer would be the best option. Also a 75D seems the best value as the range is just slightly less but the price diff to a 90D or 100D if huge and out of budget. Besides the normal range is more than enough for work and on trips I am thinking what’s 20 or 30 miles of range at a supercharger is just a few min. Sure on a long trip there will be more charges overall resulting in more time but with kids you have to stop anyways so not a big deal to me.
Now there is the 0-60 I see some 2017 75D listed at 6 sec and others 4.9. Researching seems back then Tesla released an in-shop upgrade for only some 2017 X’s to get a boost to 4.9 sec. Now I wonder is it safe to assume that if Tesla has posted 6 sec this VIN cannot be upgraded or is that not a safe assumption. I researched but could not find the VIN cutoff for this upgrade. I do notice that the ones listed at 6 sec do have lower VINs but not sure if that means no upgrade possible. If anyone knows the VIN cutoff that would be great.
It is the wife that is 100% sold on the model X she just has to have winged doors. But I have also thought for 51K I can get a brand-new model Y and in NJ we have 5K rebate on new electric cars so that brings it to 46K for a brand-new car. But 20+ less cargo room and no wing doors and really an entirely different car from an X.
Looking for thoughts and advice from current model X owners and from anyone that has bought used off Tesla or elsewhere advice.
