Picking up my new Model S and the invoice keeps changing. Yesterday it dropped after they subtracted the $3000 price change, today it went up about $1000 and it looks like it's because the RTA is assessed as $1034. A couple of issues that are pissing me off. First why doesn't my delivery guy call, email, or text me? Why do they not pick up the phone when I call? Am I supposed to just be expected to hit refresh on my Tesla homepage throughout the day? Because this afternoon it was a different price and I already got my cashiers check from my bank for that price. This is pretty aggravating.
Secondly, what exactly is the MSRP of a Tesla Model S? I have the Long Range so it shows as Model S $75,000 and added range +$10,000. As the RTA is 1.1% of the MSRP of the car, even if you added everything to my purchase including tax it should not be $1034, it should be around $850-$950.
Ugh, the RTA tax has been pissing me off before and here it is again. I already knew it was going to wipe out any potential gas savings.
