    Model S Service Experience

    I wanted start a discussion about service experience with S owners. I have a Model S Plaid that I received towards the end of last year and my service experience has been abysmal at best. I’ve had issues noted from delivery day, (scheduled appointment in November) that still haven’t been...

    Door Handle - make sure to get the same version if you replace it yourself

    The gear on my 2013 Model S 2.5 Door handle broke (changed once during warranty). I ordered a repair kit from Teslarti but it was for the version 1, they are in the process of the return... since I had the car open, i didn't want to waste time finding a gear so I ended up calling my local...

    Tesla Online Shop - Emails ignored, half the order missing (£500+) What do I do?

    Has anyone else found it impossible to get in touch with the Tesla Online Store? The address given was: [email protected] I get an email back saying they will take a while to respond but then nothing for weeks. About 2 weeks ago I ordered 2 wall chargers and 2 pedestals. Only half...

    Problems with Tesla Roadside Assistance

    I initially loved my Tesla but the aftermarket support has been poor. First, a few months ago I had a flat tire. no help available from roadside assistance but they did send a tow. However the whole experience from call to being able to go home was 6 hours! When I gave a less than perfect...

    Weather delay?

    Is weather delay a thing? I feel like it’s a lie from Tesla. I ordered a model Y in early July. Same experience as everyone else: original timeline was 4-8 weeks, then it delivery estimate kept moving. Finally got a note saying my car would be here by Nov 19. I got a VIN. I was contacted by...

    Aggressive Bill Collection

    Had my first mobile service on June 22nd, servicing a smelly A/C system (vehicle is 7 months old...) and diagnose a substantial rattle. After the tech completed the AC repair (needed to schedule follow up to replace entire skirt for rattle fix) I asked about payment, she stated I'd receive...

    Extremely poor delivery experience from Mt. Kisco, NY

    Yesterday, my wife and I drove 235 miles from Central New York to Mt. Kisco for a 2:00pm appointment to pick up my new Model Y. About 20 minutes after checking in, a sales associate greeted me and took me to my car. To my surprise and disappointment, I immediately saw that the vehicle had a...

    Tesla Energy has the worst Customer Service. Regret getting Tesla

    Tesla customer service is non-existent. Terrible experience from the start. I should of listen to my gut and NOT used them. I ordered the panels July 2020. They installed the equipment in December 2020. They installed the Powerwalls on the floor when I asked them to wall mount it. They...

    Supercharger support: Total fail

    Once again, Tesla’s horrific customer service has demonstrated itself. Such a shame, given how exemplary there were when they first launched. I took a road trip this past weekend. About 2 hours after my 2nd supercharger stop, I received an alert, both on my IC screen and the main screen that...

    Christmas Delivery Delays

    Has anyone else gotten a text from Tesla about their delivery delayed that were expecting in the next few days? My scheduled pickup date was supposed to be Saturday. I just got a text message (on Christmas Eve!) that they will have to push my date back to Monday. No real explanation. Not sure...

    No customer service for 2013 Model S

    I have a 2013 Model S with 133K miles on it. My problem is that it is extremely difficult, nearly impossible to get any customer service. When I first got the car customer service was great. It went from excellent to good, good to so so, and now I am being ignored. No service. Tesla just...

    Cancelled my MS order out of frustration

    Before I go on this rant, big shout-out to everyone on this forum who is just so awesomely helpful. So much better than Tesla's actual "customer service". I swear if Tesla fired their top 10 customer service people and replaced them with random people from this message board, they'd probably...

    Customer service appears to be broken

    I just found out that customers have no avenue to escalate a new vehicle delivery issue with sales or service beyond the level of local store manager. If the issue is the store manager or the issue conflicts with the business pressure put on the store manager, the customer really has no...

    Free unlimited supercharging

    Dear Tesla friends, I bought Model X at the end of last year . I was told by sales-rep. that I have free unlimited surpercharging. I got media proof that I should have free unlimited supercharging. Does anyone here who bought Model X or Model S in October-December 2019? Do you have free...

    Bad Tesla Customer Service

    For a CEO that can put men safely on a space station and will eventually get them to Mars and for a CEO who can get a car to drive itself on curved roads, how in the world can he not get the customer service piece right. My Tesla 3 did not start (apparently the 12V battery was dead without any...

    Should Tesla do something about my degradation?

    I own a 2013 Models S 60 (EPA rated range 208) purchased in September of 2018. After taking delivery I charged to 100% and the rated range was 177 miles. I brought this to Tesla's attention immediately and the response was "it's normal". Now, a year and a half later it gets 160 rated miles to a...

    Tesla Total Customer Service Experience poll

    It is clear to me that Tesla has shut down traditional customer service eg call, text or email a single source and get a timely response that takes care of your issue(s). As a 2012 Sig owner, I remember the early days when George B headed up the "customer experience" team with "make me smile"...

    Model Y change increased FSD price

    First post here, I tried searching through the forums, but couldn't find anything. Sorry if this has been answered. OK, First off, Canadian here so pricing is in CAD. I pre-ordered a Model Y last year in March. I chose the Performance, 7 seats, grey, with FSD. After literally months and...

    First service experience - 2020 Model S Performance

    Hey gang After finding spots of oil a number of times on my garage floor under the front driver's side wheel, I made an appointment to have my Model S examined. I had suspected the front motor driveshaft was potentially the culprit after reading another member's similar experience. I filled out...

    No Way to Talk to Human at Tesla

    I've recently had a bad experience at the Raleigh Service Center and I asked for a phone number to corporate. At first, the manager said it is on the website, to which I searched and found nothing. Then she replied with what seems to be a fake mobile phone number that when googled goes to some...

    Tesla wins in Michigan!!!

    Tesla Owes Me $1000+

    Picked up our M3 in August. Because of the difference between what we paid and what we got on the trade-in, we should have been given $1200 at closing. Didn't happen. We were told we would get a check in the mail in thirty days or so. Also . . . didn't happen. Every few weeks, I call or...

    Accused of cracking my panoramic sunroof within less than 24 hours of ownership.

    Accused of cracking my panoramic sunroof within less than 24 hours of ownership. I had largely forgiven and ignored Tesla’s less than adequate customer service, because I was keen to get my hands on my new car. My experience today though, cannot be ignored. I collected my Model 3 AWD...

    Tesla’s BAD Customer Service

    This is my first post of the forums. I am sorry if I sounded mad, but I am mad at Tesla’s lack of the basic customer service respect. I have been long a fan of Tesla. I have the Tesla Solar since 2016 (when they were SolarCity), and I bought my Model 3 LR non-AWD in October 2018 under the...

    Impressed With Customer Support

    So today I went on Tesla's website and was figuring out what my lease payments would be. The chat box was on the right side and says chat now, so I decide to see if Tesla offers extended test drives. The guy I am chatting with tells me yes they do extended test drives if they have enough demo...

    Delivery Contact Problems

    I am all for Tesla trying out new ways of selling cars, but can it really be a sensible approach to selling a £35,000+ car to make it impossible for the customer to talk to any human being about their purchase between the point of order until they turn up to take delivery? I've tried all sorts...

    Delivery chaos continues

    Frustrated with repeated reschedule, need to take action.. Please suggest

    Hi, Today is my fourth rescheduling with Tesla for my model 3 and I do not have any delivery date as of now. My suspicion is, Tesla is just assigning a VIN just to remove the 'cancellation' option and to make some money out of customer's financing amount. My bank already paid money to Tesla...

    Tesla Energy Customer Service delays

    As the owner of a Model S and a Model 3 as well as a 7.8 kW Solar City PV array, I'd say I am one of Tesla Energy's best customers.
