    Tesla Has Plans To Open Its First True Standalone Store In Michigan

    Tesla’s first Michigan Service Center stands to get a gallery store next door. The Tesla situation in Michigan has been complicated for years. Not long ago, the Silicon Valley automaker was still banned from selling its cars in the state. However, a recent legal deal changed that. It allows...

    Tesla wins in Michigan!!!

    Just came here to post "F YEAH!!!!" Michigan customers have been suffering immensely at the hands of corrupt government and dwindling customer service from Tesla. Today's ruling in favor of Tesla will allow Tesla to sell and service cars in Michigan and is going to be a huge deal for...

    Michigan Customers are Screwed!

    Hi I own a Tesla Model S since 2016. When I purchased the car, everything was hunky dory for S and X owners in Michigan since Tesla promised to send a flatbed to pick up your car and give you a loaner or send a ranger to fix your car issues. This arrangement lasted for a while but has lately...

    Toledo, OH getting a Service Center (Detroit, MI owners)

    Saw today on CNET, that Tesla is opening a service center in Toledo, OH that will also provide access to those in the Detroit, MI area since that State has blocked repair access to Tesla owners. Great news for many I'm sure. From the Tesla map for superchargers, stores and service centers it...

    Supercharger - Swartz Creek, MI

    I contacted the city manager via email and was told the proposed location for this supercharger is the Meijer on Morrish Rd.

    MI service need more schedulers and technicians

    Supercharger - Northville, MI

    Not sure if there is any thread on this yet, or if Tesla has really indicated exactly where the Novi Supercharger is going to be.
