I'm taking delivery of a dealer owned 2018 Model S in two weeks that has 7,000 miles on it. The car is 1,000 miles away so I am unable to look it over first. What would your expectations be of the condition of the car when it arrives considering I would be the first owner and it's not a CPO car? Part of me thinks that since the car has 7,000 miles on it, that I shouldn't expect it to be in perfect condition. But then another part of me thinks the discount I'm receiving is because of the 7,000 miles on it and everything else should be factory new.
Should I expect it to be in the exact same condition as a new car with zero miles on it?
Are some paint chips or minor scratches acceptable?
Scuffed seats or worn console?
Worn floor mats?
Should the warranty extend another 7,000 miles?
Updated and current software? (Built in February, 2018)
Mechanically inspected top to bottom?
Thanks for your advice! This sure is making me second guess that I should have paid an extra $12,000 for a factory new car versus a loaner ......
