    Hit a curb, please advice if tire needs replacement

    Hi, I am new to the forum. I apologize in advance if I am breaking any rules. I had stupidly hit a curb trying to perfectly parallel park in Boston street on my brand new MY.

    Drove my brand new model y over a curb! Please advise!

    Hello all! I recently got my MYLR (literally last Friday - 3/31) and today I accidentally drove over a curb while turning left at a signal. The curb was unexpectedly high and both my left tires went over it and heard some sound which I think is the bottom of the car hitting the curb (part of...

    Turned steering while parked near kerb, heard a grind

    Hi, I was parked very close to the kerb and I turned the steering to drive away. I heard a grinding sound which is presumably the sound of the tyre pushing against the kerb, and there was some kerb rash. This has happened a couple of times now. Should I get my Model Y inspected for damage to...

    Service Center in Connecticut curb rashed my Tesla

    Not sure if anyone else has had to deal with this issue but the Tesla Service center I took my car to curb rashed the passenger side wheels. I'm so annoyed because I've had the car a few months and was SO careful with it but the so called Tesla experts messed it up in less than 2 hours. Any...

    Auto park scrapped rear bumper on curb

    I suspect this was caused by the combination of auto park, air suspension and summon. The story: I backed my car half way into an uncovered parking spot. I’ve been only using auto park in my home garage so I thought I’d try auto park to get comfortable using it in public parking spaces. Not...

    I recently took my M3 for service at the Burbank SC, and when I picked it up, it had damage (curb rash) on the passenger rear rim, and a scratches on the rear bumper.
