I'm wondering how the trade-in experience was for those of you with a Tesla. Did they give you a fair offer? My car has a Kelly Blue Book trade-in value of $20,000 but they only offered me $8,000 for a trade-in on a new Model S. They did not even look at my car, they just used the info I provided and the VIN. They said my only alternative was to get an offer from CarMax and, if higher, they would match the CarMax offer. However, if I'm not buying a car from CarMax, I assume they will only offer me the lower "cash value" rather than "trade-in value".
