I am in the Bay Area for work and finally have a little free time this weekend, so I promptly scheduled a test drive at Santana Row on Sunday. I live in Houston and do not have a reservation yet. There is no timetable set for allowing test drives in Texas due to the dealer laws, so I was not going to miss this opportunity.
I have two questions for everyone here on the forum.
1) Is there anything specific I should know about test driving at Santana Row? Co-pilot to ask for, test drive route. parking, place to eat, etc. any tips would be helpful. Thanks.
2) Can I get a head count on the number of people that placed a reservation without consulting their significant other? (I am very likely to do this.)
I am about halfway though my three year LEAF lease and I already know a Tesla will be my next car. It is a little premature for me to reserve as I am about 10 months beyond the wait list right now. When I called to schedule my test drive, the associate explained that after the holiday season the wait may be longer than my lease and reserving and deferring was the safer option. Great sales work, I must say.
We can afford a middle of the row Model S, but we never spend this kind of money. Let alone without a sit down conference. So, in the event of total significant other flip out on the news, switching to Model X (for her) should be seamless right?
Can't wait to get some seat time!!!
