    2022 M3LR Rear Ended (2 Days old)

    My 2 day old Model 3 LR was rear ended on the freeway :-( My initial estimate to repair is $25,376.79. At this point I don't even want it repaired but have to go with whatever the insurance decides. Any advise from people in similar situations?

    Our Model Y got rear-ended.

    Got bumped by a distracted driver yesterday and the tailgate is dented. :( Looks like the rear bumper is also dislodged and/or broke the clips as well. See photos below. Will this be an easy fix(PDR) or does it require replacing the tailgate and bumper? The other party has GEICO and will be...

    Repair Estimate Model 3

    Cry for me. My 6-month-old 2020 M3P with less than 4k miles was involved in a minor accident over the weekend. The bumper took the brunt of the damage but the hood is bent I think. It doesn't sit flush with the fenders anymore. The headlights are also slightly misaligned. Still in the process of...

    Tesla Model 3 sensor and accident

    Otherwise I love this car. Body shop says the following damage has become quite common lately. I guess people are getting too dependent on these sensors. Just ran into a high curve on the passenger side while getting out of the parking spot. Sensor on the right side gave no visual or audio...
