Used 2016 Tesla Model S Pricing

Consumer Rating

2016 Highlights

Instead of introducing changes on a model-year basis as other automakers do, Tesla phases in rolling updates, especially when it comes to software and electronics. In 2016, the Model S received revised front-end styling similar to that found on the Model X SUV and an enhanced cabin air filtration system, adaptive headlights and Autopilot semi-autonomous driving technology. The company also phased out the 70 and 70D variants and introduced the entry-level 60 and 60D, which are simply software-limited versions of the 75 and 75D, respectively.


  • Impressive range on higher-end models
  • strong performance across the board from all models
  • advanced technology features that aren't available from other luxury brands
  • abundant cargo space for a sedan
  • available seven-passenger configuration makes it more family-friendly than most luxury sedans
  • free access to Tesla's expanding Supercharger charging station infrastructure.


  • Lacks the convenience, familiarity and luxury polish of similarly priced sedans
  • unproven reliability record
  • small dealer network means you might not live near a service center.

Unavailable Repair Parts Tarnishes Tesla Image
When I bought my new Tesla Model S in May 2016 and for months before I was proud to be part of “accelerating the world's transition to sustainable energy.” I talked it up with my friends and family and even with strangers I met at Starbucks. I got 2 of my kids to pre-order the Model 3. Then I ran over a truck tire tread on the freeway, causing $6k of damage to the bumper and undercarriage. Since then, the car has been at Kniesl's Repair Shop in Roseville, CA, a Tesla-authorized repair shop. It has been there for 6 weeks now awaiting repair parts, with no ETA for those parts. In fact, Kniesl's tells me that they have 3 other Teslas in their shop in similar condition awaiting parts for as much as 3 months. After 4 weeks, I contacted Tesla using the form on their web site. No response. At all. If “the world's transition....” involves no repair parts, I want no part of it, and neither should you. If “the world's transition....” includes the inability to forecast a delivery date for repair parts, I am ashamed to be a part of it. If “the world's transition....” entails a complete lack of interest in post-sales customer service, I am afraid of it. What would you do if your car was unavailable for 6 weeks with no forecast for when it would be available again? Would you feel like you were accelerating the world's transition to sustainable energy?
Misled by videos
I was very enthused by the videos on the tesla website and the fact that the driver did not have to do anything, the test drive was very different. First off, on AP, it kept going over the double yellow line and the third time it did it the car coming towards me honked...I was scared for my life in the first 5 min of my drive ! Then the limitation of 35mph on back roads ! So there is no point A to B self drive yet. That was a con in the videos. Whole AP tech is still in beta mode. Self park was a joke. It just went half-way and then the dealer says he doesnt want it to hit bushes so self-parks it. Car essentially needs data and they give you 4 years for free after which you have to pay for it. Wasn't the least bit impressed, it was just a polished version of what my $30k Forester could also do; but going over the double yellow, 3 times, was a bummer.
Still Revolutionary
Electric cars are here to stay. Amazing range, acceleration and handling. If you can afford the hefty price tag, these cars have little to no maintenance so the actual cost during ownership is small in comparison to non-electric cars. The autopilot feature is a game changer for folks who drive daily in traffic. Your right foot will be bored and your blood pressure will drop. It takes the stress out of driving while being stuck for hours in traffic. That alone is worth the hefty entry price for these cars! Beware of any body shop work that may be required because it takes forever to get basic parts from Tesla and when it's in stock they ship using slow ground transport from a warehouse far far away. Tesla customer service is terrible! The product is exceptional but they do not care about how they treat loyal customers when they are repeat buyers. For Texas residents, they have the audacity to charge you for the right to fully pay for your car before shipping it which takes 10 days to arrive. So in conclusion, closing costs are higher and you get to wait 10 days for delivery. Win/win for Tesla but not for their customers!
