What does it say in your reservation agreement?

Maxxer | 07. april 2016

It's on your credit card bill

To Tropopause: it say we can have money back

To EVolution: i am not understand you

Can you visit or call a store or Service Centre? You may be able to get more of a response (I'm just guessing though), or perhaps tweet Elon musk or tesla motors. Basically I would try every route. The email they sent me says contact them through reservations@teslamotors.com but I expect that is a pretty busy email alias at the moment. I think what Evolution is suggestions is contact your credit card company for help. Hope it works out for you.

I had reserved the Model S when they 1st started taking reserves. Decided to cancel when I realize the final cost with the option I wanted. I simply gave called the service center and my deposit was returned in a timely fashion.

@storm: just curious, where were you able to see final cost, or even any option pricing?

storm3163 | 08. april 2016

I was talking about who I reserved the Model S not the Model 3.

Tesla only accepts pre-orders from a credit card. If you have a cash emergency, you still have 1 month before you need to pay the bill. In the worst case, you can contest the charge with the credit card company.

You did pay by credit card right? Not cash to a shady person in a dark alley?

ir - LOL

Assuming you paid via credit card and not to a shady person in a dark alley - a call to your local Tesla Store to cancel should be all that is needed.

I am pay from debit card from Russia.
When i USA support, they do not answer second day in 10-15 minutes.
It is not seriously for big company like a Tesla.

To cancel, you need to call this number: (888) 518-3752, speak to someone, give them your RN number, and ask to cancel. They will tell you it takes 10-15 days to give you your money back.

Is Tesla in Russia now? I heard that they were going into India with the Model 3.

Abr | 08. april 2016

I am can not call from Russia to (888) 518-3752
I call to +1(650) 681-5100, they do not answer long time...

I don't think you can buy a Tesla car in Russia except from grey market. ir could be right after all.

KP in NPT | 08. april 2016

Call the 888 number with Skype.

Abr | 08. april 2016

to Carlk:
I do not know..tesla have't russian support

to mp1156
Thank you. I thought Skype can't call toll free numbers)
Now i call to 888 number, wait 20!!! minutes, and whey not answer too

As someone who grew up outside the US I can appreciate the issue. There are often controls on currency and they have worse bureaucratic nightmares than us so it's not as simple as cancelling with the credit card company.
@Abr. Tesla is usually pretty good about answering their phones but I'm guessing they are overwhelmed at this time. Recommend you call during business hours in California and just hold on and be patient. If you get sent to voicemail leave a detailed message. Probably better if you could get someone to call who speaks good English. As a native English speaking South Africa people here even had trouble understanding me. Your easiest option may well be trying to get your credit card company to cancel your payment if possible.
