What condition can I expect my car to be in at delivery?
Expect your used Tesla to have cosmetic wear consistent with a used vehicle upon delivery. Photos can be found directly on the listing page for each vehicle. Vehicles with under 1,000 miles will not have photos as they will have minimal wear/tear.

Note: Tesla does not perform cosmetic repairs to the used vehicle inventory available for sale on our website. The photos listed for each vehicle are intended to represent the condition transparently. Even with high-quality photos, some cosmetic imperfections may not be visible due to their size or location on the vehicle. Tesla will not perform cosmetic repairs of any kind even if the cosmetic perfection was not shown in the listing photos.
