How is it living with a 100,000-mile Tesla Model S for one year and 44,000 miles?
Brendan Flasch bought a Tesla Model S with 106,000 miles on it. He claims that at the time of purchase, it was the cheapest dual-motor all-wheel-drive Autopilot-equipped Tesla in the United States. In addition, Flasch says he drives his cars hard and racks up plenty of miles.
Flasch has owned the car for a year now. Over that time, he put another 44,000 miles on it. He takes us through the car in exhausting detail, showing that it's in pretty good shape overall. However, he made the video to give us an idea of the ownership experience with a high-mileage Tesla, as well as what to look out for.
We'll warn you ahead of time that the video is very long and detailed. However, if you're planning on investing in a high-mileage Tesla, it's a must-watch. Overall, Flasch is happy with the Model S and would buy a high-mileage Tesla again. It has held up much better than many people may expect. Below, we've included Flasch's previous video about the Model S' battery. At a full charge, the car displays 218 miles of range.
Check it all out and then leave us a comment. How many miles are on your Tesla?

Buying 100k mile Tesla and driving it to 150k in *ONE YEAR* - My Experience and Buyer’s Guide
In April 2019, I flew across the country and bought what was at the time the cheapest dual motor (all wheel drive) and Autopilot-equipped Tesla in the country - sight unseen. I walk you through my ownership experience in which I put 44k miles on the Tesla in 12 months and have the odometer cross over 150k miles. I go through the physical condition, maintenance and repairs, anticipated upcoming maintenance and repairs as well as talk about what you should look for if you’d like to keep a high mileage Tesla or if you would like to save money by buying a high mileage Tesla. Happy to answer any questions you may have in the comments! Thank you!
