“Your original lender should have the letter for you, but you might have to request it in writing. Once you request it, expect around 10 business day to receive it.
Check out the interest rate and other terms on the loan this dealer is offering you. They might tell you it’s a “low-interest rate,” when it’s not. Realistically, you might be looking at 20% interest on this loan, which is too high.
If you still need transportation to get to work, think about borrowing a relative’s car until you can save up enough money to buy a car with cash.”

Should I get additional coverage on top of Tesla roadside assistance?
"I had a flat tire on my Tesla in my driveway, so I called the company's roadside assistance number. They quoted me $80 to fix the tire or $340 for a replacement. They also said they couldn't get to it until tomorrow. So I'm thinking, what if I was stranded in the middle of nowhere? Should I get additional roadside assistance?"
