Yes, that`s what I always do. I always make sure to read everything before buying something If it was the same configuration as my order, I would have tried to develop a nice discount for the purchase of a demonstration car. I hope they will soon give you a replacement! I have a Model 3 reservation for about eight months before placing an order a few weeks ago. My expected delivery was to be December of this year. On Friday morning, I received a text and e-mail that confirmed the delivery in two days. I was thrilled. Right now, I`m going to prepare everything and prepare everything. The next day, I was keeping my balance. When I checked the MVPA in my Tesla account, I was surprised to see in the description „New – Previous service/demo vehicle” with a kilometer counter of „1527. I knew it was kind of a mistake because I was with my friend when he took delivery of his 3 not so long ago and his mileage meter was less than 50.
I spat it out until a small typing error on their side and decided to call the delivery guy to make sure everything was kopacetic. I was told that someone made a mistake and assigned me this VIN. He apologized, said it was a good catch, and they would solve the problem. Apparently, my delivery date had to be cancelled until I was assigned a new VIN. I wanted to share my experience in case it happened to someone else. I know you can go after the excitement, but don`t make the mistake of signing and/or paying without checking everything properly. I don`t have a VIN on my account yet, but my pickup has been planned for over a week. Where do you see all this? Took delivery of my AWD with 7 miles, another friend took it with 7 miles, and my neighbor just got a new P3D Saturday with only 6 on the kilometer meter. If there is no owner who bought it from the manufacturer, it is technically new and qualifies for the tax credit, but understand that it has been used by many testers and may have been abused 🙁 Big catch. It would have been a PITA if you were to refuse delivery, since the ACH and the title would have been completed by then.
