Interested in what most people chose for their service agreements?
Do you plan on getting the Extended Service Agreement when the time comes?
got the 4 year extended and 8 year prepay maintenance.
At this point I am only intending to pay for the initial 4 yr service agreement.
My thought is that I will buy the extended warranty at the end of the initial 4 yr term. Although I am intending to keep the car beyond the initial 4 yrs, anything could happen, and it's balancing a known cost that you may or may not get to take advantage of vs an unknown cost in the future.
If there is a service agreement available at that time I would also buy that but if not I will just pay as I go for the second 4 yrs. In any case I do intend to get the yearly check ups.
Got 4+4+Ranger. All you can eat peace of mind. Extended warranty: will decide later. Plan on keeping car for >8 years >200 kmi.
I got 4+4+extended+ranger... I live within 50 miles of 3 service centers and soon it will be 4. I never expect to actually use the ranger service but who knows I maybe stranded in some odd place.
No ranger for me. I live 15 minutes from a service center so I would have to use the ranger service more than 5 times for it to make sense. Probably not going to happen.
I bought the 4 year extended warranty as well as the 4 year service plan. I purchased the warranty when it was $2,500. I believe it is $4,000 now. In fact, my warranty papers say that I paid $4,000 when I was only charged $2,500. My lower price was honored within a specific time window.
I am not able to buy any of the service/warranty/ranger options since I live in Florida. This makes me wonder about how Tesla will handle people that move between states.
Would services be available if I moved out of state?
Will the service be available for owners that move to Florida after signing up in a state where they were available?
I think I am going to get the 4 year pre-paid only.
I would say the best option is buy the 4 year service at $1,900 now. Then use the $5,900 (extra 4 year service + 4 year wananty) to buy 36 shares of TSLA (current price $163). In four years Model X and Gen III are out TSLA will be above $300++ a share then buy the extended warranty or use the extra cash to "trade up" your old Tesla.
4 year annual service for me.
If you are deciding between the "EXTENDED SERVICE AGREEMENT" (warranty extension) and the "4-YEAR PLAN" (pre-paid service) and can only purchase one, my recommendation would be to get the warranty extension. When you take your car in for warranty work, they do a courtesy inspection and apply needed service bulletins.
I believe, given that this is an unproven car with some finicky parts, that a warranty extension will give you better protection than a pre-paid service plan - which you can still pay at the door for $600 per visit.
The warranty extension can still purchased at the end of the primary warranty although the price may be more or less.
I think we can all agree that it won't be less :)
I got the ESA (essentially, an extended warranty) and the 4+4 prepaid service plan (8 years/50,000 miles/"8" visits). I'm not sure the latter was wise, but we'll see. ;-) The ESA--no regrets there; I got it pre-price increase.
