Not sure, I just asked him.

Apparently there was a Model X with similar mileage that sold for around 30K but I haven't looked anything up to confirm that.

EDIT: he just replied and said that he'll be using it mostly for personal commuting but might take it on a few road trips.

Tesla owners actually compete for how many miles they can rack up. Do they just have it drive around while they play on their phones?

It may look crazy, but $15k for a Tesla still under warranty sounds good.

I have only heard of that being done in reverse--until the angry son starts kicking the bumper.

Ah, but can we really trust anything that comes from tiktok?

Until it goes out of warranty in 3 years. I'm curious what parts are showing wear on the car just from the mileage alone, besides the high voltage battery that was already replaced at ~300k miles.

He kicked it because going in reverse doesn't work.

2001 Corolla automatic with 250,000 miles in Tucson for $1,000

The Corolla is pending and I was supposed to pick up a parts Accord, but the owner stopped responding at the last minute.

Allegedly the only problems are a door handle and a small window are broken: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...67347364028853

They do not mention the front bumper needing a nut, bolt, and fender washer.
