lol. See Jason, this is what I'm talking about. There's irrational hate towards Tesla to the point that people share articles like this without having a lick of understanding of what they're reading beyond the headline. This is the second time this article has been posted here in the last 5 days. Only three problems:

1. The article has NOTHING to do with Tesla specifically. It's simply saying that electric car manufacturers benefit from electric vehicle rebates like this, which... duh. For the sake of page clicks, they decide to zero in on Tesla in their headline. It would be the equivalent of cutting the gasoline tax which would affect all gasoline vehicles and then making your headline "Taxpayers subsidizing Mercedes Bailout!". Only Mercedes isn't in need of a bail-out and the tax credit has nothing to do with them. It's the most disingenuous form of journalism there is. It's entirely clickbait and the article doesn't back up the headline at all.

2. It suggests that Tesla is currently in need of a bail-out or that Tesla is seeking some sort of government assistance to avoid insolvency when neither is the case. That portion of the headline is completely made up.

3. Even if Tesla were in need of a bailout, as the headline suggests, the credit that the story discusses isn't paid to Tesla; it's paid to the purchaser of the car.

Disliking Tesla has become a very political thing. I don't understand why. I'm not insinuating that that's what you're doing. You have some very valid questions but the fact that two separate people have shared this bullshit clickbait garbage twice on a small regional forum in a couple days tells you the power of ignorance. People have no critical thought any more. They don't question anything so long as it fits their narrative.

@Mike K

Simple questions since I don't know.

Obviously anyone can buy a gas car at any dealer.

But is it ok/advisable to buy a used Tesla from any dealer other than Tesla?

Does one who buys a Tesla from a Dodge dealer need to contact Tesla or a Tesla store?

Does said buyer bring the Tesla back to the Dodge dealer for any warranty work or service and Dodge just takes it to Tesla?

Yeah, it's a car just like any other. It depends on who the warranty was through but likely they'd just be giving you the rest of the Tesla warranty in which case you'd just take the car to Tesla. The car is what's under warranty. So like any other car, the first time you need service you'd just take it in and they'd write up a service order. You would contact Tesla to change ownership and get it under your account though. You need that to use the app.

Other than that, I wouldn't generally buy from a dealer because historically they know nothing about the cars and price them comically high. If there's anything you need to know just let me know what your requirements are and I'll tell you what to look out for.
