I bought the 4 year service plan plus extension, so I am covered for 8 years/100,000 miles. The way the plan is written, you have to have your annual maintenance performed at 1 year or 12,500 miles, whichever comes first. I took delivery at the end of January 2013, and I am now at 12,500 miles.
Some time ago, I remember seeing a lot of discussion around Tesla deciding to lift the mileage restriction and allowing owners to delay annual service until the end of 12 months of ownership regardless of miles driven. Thus an 8 year plan would last for 8 years rather than 5 or 6, you would have service performed once every 12 months, and Tesla's cost would be the same since they are servicing the car the same number of times (8). This seems to make a lot of sense.
Has anyone gotten confirmation that you can wait to have your Model S serviced until the end of 12 months of ownership regardless of miles driven without forfeiting one of your prepaid service intervals? If so, I would love to see that confirmation since at this rate my 8 year plan will only last for 6.
