I bought a super rare Mercedes AMG wagon!
If you're in the market for a rebuilt title Tesla or you want to rebuild a salvage Tesla from the auction there's a lot you need to know. Tesla has changed many of its policies recently and it may surprise you on how limited these cars can be. I still love my 2015 P85D that we rebuilt after it was totaled by the insurance company but it's not like owning a normal Tesla. Rich Rebuilds helps out with this one as he knows a thing or two about wrecked Teslas so enjoy and I hope this helps you out.

    Paul Wall I have no idea how they do it. But they claim free of charge Supercharger function for salvage title. I asked them and Bogdan Golovatyuk (owner) told that no blockage or monthly fee for their vehicles. May be they have Tesla inside? Or Tesla allow to such grey companies to do it?

    Try this guys. They selling flip Tesla cars, repacking batteries and jailbraking firmware adding block function such as regional adaptation (miles to km, f to c, ...), autopilot, ludicrous mode, surveillance, etc. They located in Kiev, Ukraine althe.info/number/uInOmYN_lmWiZLo/video teslaservice.Kiev.ua They guarantee to clients that no blacklist will an issue for salvage title cars and no need to pay to company for extra features. On their channel you may see how they making customs firmware, changing batteries and etc. As proof they show how they use EU Superchargers on US salvage. They totally don’t care about intellectual property but some times comes to US. May be next time when they’ll be in California they’ll help you.

    Thanks guys for pointing out exactly why no one should buy a Tesla. How is it that you can spend big bucks on a product, yet the manufacturer gets to decide how you can use it, and make changes without your permission. Ridiculous. The way to end this fascist business practice is to quit buying Tesla products.

  • Barnabás Herbán
    Barnabás Herbán4 muaj më parë

    I mean, I understand the logic behind that. You can't just rebuild a Tesla from scrap, maybe from 2 different cars for half the price and expect Tesla to enable supercharging for you. Who knows how u built that car. 1 little malfunction and the whole car burns down. And anyways supercharging is just a big pro for teslas, nobody said its included, in most cases u still have to pay for it. So I understand Elon, he doesn't want bad news floating around about home built burning teslas at superchargers. And of course I understand u guys as well, just think a bit about it.

    I think that tesla is money hungry. If you didnt pay 100k for the car they stop your super charging capabilities even if it was cosmetic damage that needed fixed. Tesla is BS sorry guys. The idea is wonderful however until another company steps up and makes a similar product, tesla will continue to be supercharge/update nazis.

    J.D. Power just listed Tesla as worst in initial quality (out of 32 major automakers!) with 250 problems per 100 vehicles sold (source: The Verge). Plus, the car business is a low margin industry. Taken together, these issues make me wonder why Tesla is even in the automobile business? IMO Musk and Co.'s main focus should be battery production (i.e. selling their batteries to other companies). Also, they could focus on licensing their Supercharger technology (and station network) to other automakers. Lastly, Tesla could pump more R&D money into their Solar Roof and Powerwall product lines (instead of diverting that cash towards their S3XY lineup of cars & SUV's.). www.theverge.com/2020/6/25/21302804/tesla-ranks-last-on-influential-jd-power-quality-survey

    @LegitStreetCars hey thanks fpr commenting... I like your videos and I mostly agree with your statement on how good Tesla's look. But I beleive the Model S needs a redesign. I think the car aged well up until 2 or so years ago. And to the untrained eye a Tesla Model S purchased in 2012 looks the same as one purchased last year. Weird. And don't even get me started in the Cybertrucks design. It is truly hideous.

    Absolutely ridiculous, there is no good reason for this nonsense. Basically tesla owns your vehicle because they have the ability to stop you from using most chargers, can stop you from even buying parts to repair it yourself, as well as refuse to work on it at the shop. This bs is why when mainstream car companies get more electric vehicles out there tesla is going to be in trouble. They have their benefits, but Elon is treating the vehicles in a very totalitarian way that is just absurd.

    I have a friend who will soon be 95 years old. He was a self-made millionaire at 21 and has been an investor his entire life. When I told him about the Tesla free for life charging, he said "Look for that to disappear, nothing is free!"It would seem that this may be the first strike. On the other hand, this may be an opportunity for someone to start up pay per charge vending.

    I would protect Tesla in this case. Inspection of salvaged cars should cost a lot, and supercharging means that batteries should cool down very efficiently. So this is not really good for owners but it is the really a cheapest way for company and it is a huge safety issue. Hopefully, they can make some kind of internal test for the car - so they can qualify is car good for supercharging or net remotely. It is possible - basically, it is monitoring battery temperature when you increase voltage.

    It's time to just announced that if you buy a Tesla it is a disposable vehicle. Apparently nobody ever actually owns the God damn thing. Once people realize this they'll quit buying the pieces of shit! When you originally bought the car supercharging was available. You need to contact them with a letter from your attorney and insist that the car that you purchased should have supercharging available. I'll bet you the original purchaser of the car why with a window sticker that included supercharging. That was the way you purchased the vehicle. Either make it available or buy it back from you! The same laws that apply to all other vehicles that you might purchase, also apply to Tesla's and you can enforce the law. You do have to fight them on it. But they must Supply everything that was available on that vehicle when it was first purchased. And you have evidence that supercharging was available, because when you first got it back together it would take the enhanced charging. We just had somebody here locally went through that and soundly spanked Tesla for decontenting a vehicle that he owned. You have to look at the law. If you bought any other vehicle and it had came originally with enhanced cruise control. And after you bought it they sent a truck out and they took the enhanced cruise control off your vehicle. They would be wrong. And they would have to replace that on your vehicle. Tesla is doing the same thing only they're doing it by downloading the system on and off through the internet. That is not legal. That is called theft. Its theft whether they do it or anybody else does it. The way the vehicle was first purchased is the way it is. Otherwise they need to get out of the business of manufacturing and selling Motor Vehicles. Better yet don't buy this shit until they get their act together. They are thieves. It was on the vehicle when you purchased it. Even if you bought it as a salvage vehicle. Taking capabilities off of a vehicle that you do not own is illegal.
