Yes, that`s what I always do. I always make sure to read everything before I buy something I`ve had a Model 3 reservation for about eight months before placing an order a few weeks ago. My expected delivery should be December of this year. On Friday morning, I received a text message and an email that confirmed the delivery within two days. I was delighted. Right away, I started to prepare myself and everything. The next day, I was about to get my balance at ACH. When checking the MVPA on my Tesla account, I was surprised to see in the description “New Service Vehicle/Demo” with a mileage of “1527”. I knew there was some kind of mistake because I was with my friend when he received his 3s not so long ago and his odometer was less than 50 years old. I brought him back to a small input error on his part and decided to call the delivery man to make sure everything was copacious.
I was told that someone had made a mistake and assigned me this VIN. He apologized, said it was a good catch, and they would solve the problem. Of course, my delivery date had to be cancelled until I was given a new VIN. I just wanted to share my experience if it happened to someone else. I know we can get caught up in excitement, but don`t make the mistake of signing and/or paying without checking everything properly. I don`t have a VIN in my account yet, but my pickup has been scheduled for over a week. Where do you see all this? It`s a nice catch. It would have been a PITA if you had to refuse delivery, since the ACH and title would be completed by then. Took my AWD 7 miles away, another friend took hers 7 miles away, and my neighbor just got a new P3D on Saturday with only 6 on the odometer.
If there was 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 possibly abused, 🙁 If it was the same setup as my order, I would have tried to find a nice discount to buy a demo car. I hope they will replace you soon!. . . .
