This is a poll about making the final payment. I keep getting messages about completing the final payment task, but I am hesitant to pay before delivery. I have linked my checking account in the Plaid app, so Tesla can verify funds, but I would like to wait until delivery to make the payment. Has anyone paid via Plaid at delivery? Or is the preference to get a cashier's check at the bank? Plaid seems like less of a hassle, but I am curious if it works just as well as a check when you come to pick up the truck
No hassle. Got confirmation almost instantly with Plaid.

I am also in Michigan and the Ann Arbor dealership stated no problem with a cashiers check at delivery.
This is the text I got in the app. No trade in and paying cash.

When I bought my MYP this year,I wired my funds near the day of pick-up….is the ability to wire funds no longer an option?
It's still an option. The text I received from the service center said that they would need proof of wire transfer emailed to them prior to delivery, so this means I would need to wire the funds before seeing the truck.

Did the service center ask you to email them a photo of the check prior to delivery for verification?

So I admit, there seem to be some inconsistencies. I have not received such a message, but have been to the dealership a few times. I just send them a message to clarify.

No, they did not. But I have a text confirmation that states: “For the down payment we can take it at delivery if that's easiest. Otherwise you can bring it in ahead of time.” I just send a message to please clarify.

When did Tesla transfer the funds? Was it instantaneous, or did they wait to deliver the truck before initiating the transfer?
I paid on a Friday and by Monday the funds were out. I did pay early. I’m not too worried about it.

I found my truck in the holding lot and did a pre pre-delivery inspection. No one hanging over my shoulder and plenty of time to examine fit and finish. I can't open the vehicle yet, but everything looked good. If you can find out where they hold the vehicles before delivery this is your best bet.

For the record, I was able to pay via the app at delivery after inspecting the truck. The payment was instantaneous. I picked up the Cybertruck on Friday, and funds remained in my bank account until the following Tuesday (Monday was Memorial Day).

Not pre-paying in advance did not cause any delay at delivery.
