Prospective buyers beware. Those financing rates you see on the Web site and in the showrooms are very deceptive. If your credit score is less than perfect, the offered rate is 3 times the rate that your see there.
Tesla's financing partner, Alliant, is using a bait and switch tactic by showing rates like 1.5% and 1.8%. My credit report was perfect in every way except for a single $200 item and they used that as an excuse to switch the offer to about 4.5%.
Make sure you know what your money costs will be BEFORE you make a deposit commitment.
