Southern California’s first Tesla showroom/service center that deals in both new and used Model S sedans is now open.

Located in Buena Park, the facility features a 23,000-square-foot showroom on 2.5 acres of land in the Buena Park Auto Center.

According to the Orange County Register, this is Tesla first store in the region to combine service with new and pre-owned sales at one site.

Jeremy Synder, Tesla’s southwest regional general manager, told Orange County Register:

“We really needed to bring a bigger presence.”

“…if you are looking for a pre-owned Tesla, you can come here and buy one right off the lot.”

Prior to the opening of this store, Tesla would drive interested pre-owned Model S buyers to cars located off site.  Now, those cars are on the lot.

Synder says that “all Tesla trade-ins in Orange County will be sold from the new store,” according to Orange County Register.

      Either it’s gone or the price went up to $65,500.

    Actually now might be a good time to get a good deal as a result of trade-ups, or trade-downs, or even sideways trades. There are more used vehicles available for sale.

    Somewhat similar to trading up from a starter house, to a bigger better house, or trading down to a smaller home in retirement, as your needs require.
    You use the proceeds from the sale of one to finance the purchase of the other.

      Buying a car is not like buying a house. Buying a house is an investment; buying a car is an expense.

      1. ffbj says:

        That was an analogy. Even so when a car becomes as expensive as a house I think its a fair one. Houses and cars are both expenses and they can both be investments too.

        1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

          Houses generally don’t lose value over time, or at least not as fast as property values rise. Contrariwise, cars always depreciate in value over time, and generally fairly rapidly.

          It’s a common mistake for people to consider buying a car as an investment. The reality is it’s an expense.

            I’d rather live in a Model S than a house

    Aren’t the Buena Park authorities worried about ground water contamination from leaking batteries with so many Teslas on 2.5 acres of land? Quick, somebody start a change.org petition to stop this travesty!

    1. Robb Stark says:

      It is because CA has far more lax environmental regulations than TX.

      1. Pushmi-Pullyu says:

        Oh, snap.

  6. Ken says:

    We have a Tesla new/used sales and service center here in Devon, PA as well.

  7. jelloslug says:

    How are they going to handle the toxic runoff from all the leaking batteries? The zoning commission should have done their homework before allowing this.

  8. Mike says:

    Guess I’ll be making the trek out to Buena Park soon to check this place out.

      Better wear chem proof gloves and booties. And please for the sake of all you love and cherish, don’t take the kids into the midst of such a toxic mess. Appropriate that it’s easier to get a permit for oil drilling in Texas than a retail store with toxic batteries. California does this all wrong.

      Buena Park’s exposures to toxins must be off the charts. Better safe than sorry, Forewarned is forearmed, etc.

      1. Buena Park – Toxins? I Don’t think Disney would like the Association! I hear some things were Toxic, But Mice? (Mickey M-O-U-S-E, that is!)
        Knott’s Berry Farm is more Delicious!
