  • Oct 19, For the Model S, I based maintenance costs on the price of a four-year Tesla maintenance plan ($2,) stretched out to five years. Model 3.

    May 20, So, in March, I got “the call” from Tesla: My Model 3 was coming to New York and they were ready to How much could it cost to repair?.

    This just reaffirmes what I had gathered about out of warranty repair costs being very expensive. I will never own a Tesla out of warranty.

    Yes, that is true. I currently have 41k miles on the car. Here are the maintenance items that I have paid for on the car:. Tires at 40k miles. A Model S has fewer than 20 moving parts, excluding things like windows and climate control. An average family sedan has over 10, moving parts in just the drivetrain alone.

    The drive train of a Model S is just slightly more complicated than a blender. Just about all of the cost premium is in the batteries and the lightweight aluminum body. The motor is innovative it is liquid cooled , but it's essentially the same thing that Nikola Tesla invented a century ago.

    My point is that EVs have very different drive trains than ICEVs, and sometimes how they are repaired is very different.

    No its absolutely NOT true long term. Short term yes, but if you buy their yearly maintenance package then you already are giving them most your savings in maintenance. But the battery costs the most.

    If you are a long term owner you WILL need to replace the battery. So unless you plan on selling it every 5 years or so it will lose a lot of value due to the battery like a LOT. You might be remembering about their battery warranty.
