Tesla claims the updated service terms on their website over the weekend were a mistake.

The Tesla website seemed updated over the weekend. Alas the update was a cause for concern to Tesla vehicle owners. The updated Tesla website stated some very restrictive service plans for their vehicles.

The site stated buyers could no longer transfer their extended warranty. Even prepaid service plans could not be extended to new owners when selling the car. It was further stated owners of plans could only cancel them for a pro-rated refund. 

As soon as the masses started panicking Tesla cleared the car. According to Tesla the updated service terms were all a big fat mistake.

The updated version of the website had been set up by mistake, according to The Verge. Tesla sent emails to rectify the situation. Tesla stated owners can continue to transfer their plans to a new owner in a private sale in the mail. 

The email stated the changes to Tesla’s Extended Service Agreement were posted as a result of an error. Tesla further ensured their practice of refunding the unused portion of the Extended Service Agreement also continues.

Tesla even stated the owners can transfer the unused value of their Extended Service Agreement towards an Extended Service Agreement.

In simple terms the older Tesla vehicle owners can transfer for a new Tesla Model S or Model X. Although Tesla has now made matters right once more the changes did come from somewhere. The error cannot simply be disregarded as typos.
