Because of this, you shouldn't buy a used Tesla Model X.

Buying a pre-owned Tesla Model X can be enticing due to the substantial cost savings involved.

There are risks involved with buying a pre-owned electric vehicle.

Because Teslas are designed to function as part of a growing networked technology environment,

buying a pre-owned model will prevent you from receiving the latest security, navigation, and autonomous driving updates.

It can be costly to rectify issues with the battery or the motor in a previously owned Model X,

and it's possible that it never received the required maintenance.

Leasing a brand-new vehicle is the most cost-effective option if you plan to make full use of all of Tesla's capabilities.
