3 Crucial Questions to Ask When Buying a Pre-owned Tesla Model 

  1. What is the mileage and battery degradation of the model? 

One of the most important aspects to consider is the battery’s health and its remaining capacity. Request the dealer to give you details regarding battery’s remaining lifespan, mileage, charging history, and more. In addition to it, check if the vehicle has been regularly serviced. 

  1. What is the History and Condition of the vehicle? 

You will be needing a detailed vehicle history report that consists of crucial deets like accident, repairs, and maintenance records. This will help you assess the overall condition of the vehicle, and potential reliability issues. 

  1. Are there any known issues with the vehicle? 

Asking about known issues or concerns related to the specific model or year of the used Tesla is essential. Stay informed about any common problems, such as faulty door handles, touchscreen issues, or potential battery-related concerns specific to the model you’re considering. 

Lastly, before finalizing any vehicle, take it out for a test drive to experience the vehicle’s performance firsthand and assess its handling, braking, and overall comfort.
