    Model Y - Totaled or repair?

    I'm aware my insurance adjuster will make the final decision, but I'm interested if anybody else has experienced similar damage (cost) to their Model Y and what the outcome was. I'm only curious as I'm trying to decide if I should go ahead and submit an order for a new car or wait to hear from...

    Model 3 collision damage - thoughts?

    Hey everyone.. got into an accident this morning. A woman hit me coming through an intersection after I stopped at a stop sign. Insurance should cover everything (I may or may not have to pay a deductible), but I'm concerned the damage is beyond repair. I scheduled some time with the local...

    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...

    So Other person's insurance is going to Pay. We both have the Same Insurance Company. So initially I got a quote from Tesla it will cost $800 ( basically they will replace the bumper ). But Insurance insisted to go certified body shop which they are going to repaint and change one sensor and it...

    Damaged by 10 days old Tesla Model 3

    Unfortunately, I damaged the rear quarter panel and possibly the back passenger door of my 10-days old Tesla Model 3. The car scraped against a pillar while I was parking into the garage. I feel terrible. It was late at night and was the first time I was doing the parking maneuver while not...

    Model S P90D Damaged Salvage

    Hi all first post as this is the first Tesla I’ve bought. Just bought a P90D Model S last week and have started stripping it down when it arrived home yesterday (4/7/19). It has some front damage but fairly high up not affecting the front bumper reinforcement bar or chassis legs. Air bags...

    Accident damaged Model S, what do I need to repair this

    What would I need to get this Tesla back on the road apart from a new wheel, wing and bumper, shock absorber and brakes? Any idea how much it would cost to put it back on the road? Can't do it through insurance. Any help would be appreciated.

    Vendor Tesla Kills Yearly Service Program

    Xmas Hit & Run > TD Insurance > Excellence Auto Scarborough

    For the D's out there; short and sweet version: Dec 23, 2018, Xmas party, hit and run witnessed by two friends. Police, TD, and Excellence involved. Car is fixed after 30 days and almost like new? (My mind thinks there's more wind noise now). No cost to myself. Here are the details...

    Goodwill Repairs - Do They Get Counted?

    I had my fairly new model X in for repairs, the main one being the windshield which cracked in three places from the heater on a cold day. When I got the car back the repairs were no cost under warranty... except for the windshield. I asked the associate why I was being charged for the...

    Advice on bumper repair

    In less than 3 weeks of owning my M3, someone scraped their car against mine while it was parked and unoccupied. I was livid, but to the person's credit, they stayed on the scene and admitted to the deed. There's a pretty good scrape on the rear bumper and the side was dislocated from the rest...

    Warranty Coverage on Read Windshield

    HI Everyone, So today something very weird happened. While I was trying to mount my Thule rear trunk bike rack onto my Model S, in a moment that felt like a gentle snap of a finger, the rear windshield cracked at the top left. It happened so calmly and without any force that it almost seemed to...

    Holy crap, repairs are insanely expensive, beware!!

    on Jan 19, 2016 I slid on ice in a parking lot in my new P90D. I hit a patch of ice in a slight downhill slope resulting in me hitting a curb. After hitting the curb, I check out the car, no visible damage. Parked the car, went into my office. All seemed fine. When backing out of the parking...
