Tip of the Week

Joining my buddy on his extended test drive reminded me: you may not know you can take a Tesla overnight! 

Want to see how it fits in your garage? What's it like to Supercharge? Will your child's car seat fit? 

After your test drive, ask if you can get an extended test drive. I know Denver let me and Seattle let him so I assume it's available everywhere. If not, tell them I said it's OK!
