Buying a Model S - Forget about resale value
3 year old S 85 72,000 Miles, Moonroof, Tech Package, Smart Air Suspension, Ultra Hi Fidelity Sound, Clear bra. Thought about upgrading to a 90D until I received an 35.5K trade offer from Tesla. The car may have miles but why should that matter with a transferable battery and power train warranty with unlimited mileage for another 5 years. This offer stopped me dead in my tracks. The car is pristine. No dings, dents, accidents or paint work. Don't get me wrong, the car has been thoroughly enjoyable with minimal service headaches, however, to be offered a paltry 40% of the original purchase price after 3 years is very unsettling.
