    2022 MYLR rear-ended and not totaled

    I was rear-ended and I think the damage is really bad. However my insurance adjuster gave an estimate of $18k rather than total it. The left quarter panel and rear body panel need to be replaced and she said only if the right quarter panel needs to be replaced as well then it's a total. Is this...

    Tesla Body Repair - Denver, Colorado

    They were awesome. When our 2012 Signature Red P85 Tesla Model S was damaged the insurance sent me to another "preferred" body shop which had a higher estimate and was going to tear apart about 1/4th of the car to replace a damaged rear quarter panel.

    Body repair experience

    I know this has been covered extensively, but it's always good to share the latest experience. My Model S 75D got rear-ended at a traffic light here in Northern Virginia on 23 July; the damage did not appear extensive--damaged bumper cover, knocked-out ultrasonic sensors, bent hatch cover, bent...

    Tesla Body Repair Centers

    I noticed my RSS feed from Tesla has just displayed a list of official Body Repair Centers - not third party ones. Is this the first time we have seen exact locations named? The links take me to totally non-useful pages on the Tesla site: Tesla Body Repair Center - Villa Park etc Tesla etc.
