Tesla drives almost half a Million kilometers: All costs and repairs at a Glance

six years Ago has met Steve his dream of owning a Tesla and a used Model S P85 purchased with 56,300 are kilometres on the odometer for the equivalent of 67,000 euros, as he himself reported on the Publishing platform Medium.

Tesla: Already 160.000 km after two years,

after nearly two years of much driver cracked the 100,000-mile mark (around 161,000 km). The reason for the high mileage: the cost for its power to settle, he joined the U.S. car service Uber and earned as a self-employed taxi driver of his rolls. But also a Road trip through 48 U.S. States and Canada has not just marginally kilometers on the clock.

And so much has been spent by Steve in the first 24 months for Tesla Model S:

  • maintenance costs – a total of just under 2000 Euro.

    it has paid the YouTuber 500 Euro for the Standard maintenance and 1400 Euro for a new tire.

  • repairs – a total of 1300 euros

The car blogger also emphasizes that he had probably spent less than 850 euros to electricity; it must be said, that the electricity and energy prices in the US are significantly lower than for example in Germany.

maintenance cost: 9000 Euro for 500,000 kilometres

In may of 2019 reached Steve with his Stromer the 200,000-mile limit (approximately 322.000 kilometers). Also up to this time the YouTuber had not much to his Model S to repair. Most of the money flowed in a new screen for almost 1900 euros. In addition, it was replaced for 670 euros, the charging port and the door handle re-fixed.

"Overall, I have 200,000 miles approximately 5415 US Dollar [4600 Euro, author's note. d. Red.] output. I wish you much luck, so little for a German luxury car with 100,000 miles to spend. Probably, you would pay two to four times as much to make it up to 200,000 miles,“ writes Steve. He had saved almost 17,000 euros on petrol.

The 500,000-mile record, he has not, however, alone. After five years he sold most of his Tesla on a similar crazy electric mobili. Brian, the new owner, is a self-touring also electrically through 48 States in a Nissan Leaf, such as Steve in the accompanying YouTube Video emphasizes.

after adjusting for the new tire, put the two a total of only 9000 euros in the maintenance of the Tesla Model S. Steve also points out that it is possible to achieve a mileage normally in 20 and not in eight years. "Tesla is an unstoppable force of Nature. The cars are superior to others on so many levels that it's hard to keep up,“ summarizes Steve his impressions.

Tesla-experiences: Others have less luck

Whether the experiences of the Bloggers are now the exception or the rule, is difficult to say. So Tesla repeated, for example, recently in the customer-Report by J. D. Power, the worst value of all brands, with a high defect rate, after a short time . In Tesla's forums also reports with page-by-page lists of Deficiencies, complaints about poor service quality or by electric motors that had to be replaced over the years due to damage to multiple in addition to hymns of praise to the electric car. However, emerge seems to be that a crucial point for E-cars - namely, the lifetime of the battery - it can compete with Tesla is apparently loose with the life of the internal combustion engine, with only a small loss of capacity in the course of time.
