I took delivery of a Model S on January 6, 2018 in Louisiana. My lender has been unable to file registration with the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles as Tesla will not send them my MCO (Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin)! Since taking vehicle delivery, I have been driving around without a license plate. The lender will not even grant a temporary plate until the lender has this MCO. Additionally, if registration is not filed by tomorrow (1/26/18), Louisiana DMV will apply a penalty of 580.00 PER MONTH + interest until filed.
I am awaiting a response from Tesla, but will be speaking with an attorney as I will NOT accept responsibility for penalties because of Tesla's error/inaction.
