    Hey Rich....Supply and demand! Critical thinking says, too many people want this vehicle. It's on the buyer for not checking out the cars history, or if they did, it is totally on them for purchasing them and keeping prices up on them....

    I saw a pre owned Tesla in Seattle Washington. Model s start at 48k. Who much is the shipping from Seattle to nyc. I saw your another video about pre owned Tesla. About the service records problems with the vehicle. I wanted the cars problem fixed by Tesla. Thanks uncle rich. U saved me a huge headache.

    YOU ARE RIGHT! It makes zero sense to pay a little less for a salvage car when you can buy it used for almost the same price. That would be true for any car make or model. There is something not quite right about paying over 60k for a salvage Tesla...

    The reason Teslas sell for so much on auto auctions is because they are typically bought by international buyers. In some countries electric vehicles have low (or no) import taxes, and salvage title makes no difference to them.

    This is absolutely insane. A salvage title means an insurance company has totaled the vehicle. While I've heard stories of people eventually converting a salvage title into a real title, those are just stories. Additionally, since you have to rely on Telsa selling you parts (that they are unlikely to do) you'll never get that thing fixed. Nope, I wouldn't do it. I'm not interested in ever buying a wrecked car or any type unless I can get it for a steal, I have time for a project (I don't), and parts are available (they're not for a Tesla). So, no thanks.

    TESLA is a milestone in the automotive industry, but it uses a "technology" battery that was created in 1972. You would try to connect the tesla under the "colibry" battery - a dry lithium-metal-polymer battery with a constant electrolyte. These batteries were mounted in forklifts and could work for 18 hours instead of 8 hours. From what I remember, they are now used in air vehicles in Canada and Saudi Arabia because they tolerate low and high temperatures very well. The creator of these batteries is Mieko Hannemann.

I get that they are amazing cars (I'd kill to own one) but when you are looking at peanuts in cash to get a used vs salvage it's absurd. You are going to spend tons more in just parts... I don't understand why the people buying these cars don't see that??? Or are they buying them for scrap parts that they know are going to be blacklisted from Tesla??

    *Theory:* Tesla is buying up these salvage cars to stop people tinkering, repairing, parting-out, reselling - activities which all ultimately make the cars more accessible, resulting in brand damage - to protect their brand and keep it exclusive.

    Prices on used Tesla here in Norway dont make any sense. Salvage ones you cant buy. You get old used for the same price as new. And people buy. They also dont drop to more like 350,000 NoK/41000 US thats for 2013, with no car warranty, 3 years left on DU and battery left, and have driven almost half way to the moon. And the noen to get one will last you 10 years to be a livable monthly bill. As one that always buy used thats so many red flags. But they say, EVs dont break down and need any service or repairs. Should it break down, well up to year wait for spare parts, and thats a 50 50, thats thru customer reports that it will.
