I read somewhere recently that Tesla was no longer recommending scheduled annual service as EV's do not need much service as the argument went. If this is true, I should probably forego the annual service plan I was considering for my recently acquired Model S. I did purchase the plan for my last model S and indeed I sort of lost money on that as I only kept the car for 3 years after purchasing the original 4 year plan and the maintenance plan transfers with the car. I wonder what experience others who never purchased a maintenance plan have had. Incidentally, my new car is leased and possibly annual maintenance is required as part of the lease. I'll have to check that but meanwhile this may still be an apt discussion for those who own their cars out right.
