I have gotten a few requests for comparing the TCO for the TESLA to another car.
Please feel free to use this spreadsheet to compare, but I only ask that you do only modify the "GREEN" highlighted section
Please paste the following link
When using this try to compare apples to apples in terms of interior and features (i.e. comparing a Base car with no AC, no power windows, no power locks, etc, etc would probably no be a good comparison).
Also take the notes with a grain of salt, these are "recommended" maintenance, Also keep in mind the misc maintenance encompasses any one-off's (if they occur at all- head gasket, fuel pump, thermostat, heater core leak, exhaust leak, replacement of wiring harness, etc, etc). The Tesla has less moving parts and a milder drivetrain environment, so there are going to be less failure modes, but things can still happen on average
