I am wondering, for those with 20,000 miles or more (if you have less, no need to respond) on your Model S, have you NOT needed to take your Model S in for anything other than the annual service?
I am wondering if there are cars out there that have ran perfectly fine without needing new drive units, 12v batteries, or other non-annual service work done to their cars. It seems these cars require more servicing than traditional cars the more I read, and it is a bit worrisome to me. I am really looking forward to this car, I just really don't want to have it at the service center all the time or worry my wife will be stranded somewhere. There are people who have had 5-8 drive units replaced in 30K miles.. Kind of defeats the purpose of not needing to spend time at a gas station or do oil changes when the car is breaking down every 5K miles.
So, how many of you had a perfectly fine experience in the 20K miles of ownership? Chill my anxiety here for me please as we take delivery in 3 weeks!
