Pickup day is filled with anticipation and a couple of phone calls and or text communications from Tesla. A phone call was received around 9:30 am to confirm our late afternoon pickup. It’s getting real! Next up was a text about an hour before pickup with instructions and a link to accept the car. We head off to the Service Center which is a 30 minute drive for us, pull in and walk to the front of the building. There it is, our new Blue Tesla Model 3 with White Interior!
Now it is time to log into our Tesla app and “play”, sorry I mean unlock the doors, open the trunk and frunk, and inspect the car. Luckily for us we had a friend, Craig, show up to help inspect, this was nice, as once you see your Tesla, all you want to do is go for a drive.
I would suggest printing a checklist to take with you when picking up your Tesla, we did and it helped us stay on track. The linked checklist is fairly long, but take your time and go line by line.
We did find 2 minor problems with the paint, these were quickly buffed out. Next we noticed some black marks on the drivers seat, this was also taken care of with some cleaner and a towel. We did have two minor issues with panel gaps with this delivery and these were resolved at a later date, the frunk was shifted a bit to one side and the trunk alignment to the C pillar was off on the drivers side.
Inspection was done, our paperwork was in the car, we signed it, put it in the designated drop box and it was time to bring our Tesla home. Our Tesla was delivered with a 90% charge, we received 2 keycards for entry and driving, and because our state requires a front license plate, there was a license plate holder tucked away in the trunk.
Our pickup day was finished off with the drive home and sitting in the Tesla Model 3 going over the functionality and setup of driver accounts.
Next up: Our Model 3 is home
