Used Tesla Model S: Watch for These Problems!


Tavarish and his friend Rex delve into buying a used 2016 Tesla Model S 90D for $17,000, a seemingly great deal for an electric vehicle. They take it to Electrified Garage for an inspection where they learn about common issues with this model, including suspension wear, air suspension leaks, and the importance of proper air conditioning function.

Why does it matter?

The 2016 Model S 90D offers impressive performance and range, but it’s crucial to be aware of potential problems like suspension issues and A/C malfunctions that could impact the vehicle’s performance and longevity. Opting for a 2016 model or newer with reliable second-generation batteries can help avoid costly repairs down the line.

How is it going to shape the future?

By educating themselves on the potential pitfalls of buying a used Tesla Model S, Tavarish and Rex ensure they make an informed decision. Knowing what to look out for in terms of maintenance and common issues can save them time, money, and headaches in the long run, setting a precedent for others considering purchasing a pre-owned electric vehicle.
