    Question about repair for steering rack replacement

    I have a Model Y and had steering wheel lock when driving. The car was towed in for service. My question is this, the service center completed the repair by replacing the steering rack (RWD). Does this rack impact my car which is a AWD? I don't know if the two are related, but I thought I'd ask...

    Tesla Service Opinions

    Just got a model 3 and had some issues. I took it to a service center and had a pretty big discrepancy with management and they declined to escalate my situation above that location. Dont understand why they are allowed to chose where my complaint escalates to when i am the customer. Very...

    Model X 2023 whompy wheels

    Hello TMC community, I am writing to share a rather disconcerting experience I've had with my Model X, which I've only had for about a month and a half. While I was initially thrilled with my purchase, a recent incident has left me feeling very unsettled. After noticing some instability and...

    Model Y AC compressor failure

    My new 2023 model Y came with a faulty AC compressor. Tesla service is replacing it, but is claiming it will take more than a week to complete the repair. This is after waiting 3 weeks to get the parts. Is this normal? Why should any repair take that long?

    SC not honouring 12 year Body Rust Limited Warranty for spoiler

    2017 MX underside fixed spoiler panel paint is bubbling. It is an uncommon but known issue on the forum I see. After initially quoting £0 repair estimate and agreeing “I’m sure the spoiler is covered under the paint warranty” SC is now refusing to honour the 12 year Body Rust Limited Warranty...

    How good is the match with a replacement factory-painted fascia?

    Took delivery of a white Model Y this week and noticed the front bumper/fascia has blotchy/mottled paint. The effect of this is the front of the car looks dirty even when it's clean. I only noticed it in ambient light, otherwise I would have possibly rejected the delivery. I returned to the...

    2010 Roadster started honking periodically when parked in the garage

    Hi everyone, today my 2010 Roadster started honking periodically when parked in the garage. It will honk 3-4 times in a 2 minute time window and then stop for an hour or more. It hadn't been plugged in for a little while so I plugged it in (it was at around 100 miles of charge left). I...

    What should I do - 2012 Signature Red Model S

    I've happily owner a 2012 Model S Signature 132k miles for over 8 years. I've had some minor issues over the years but most were resolved under warranty or fixed for less than $1000. My recent problem started in August 2022 when my car was rear-ended while I was at a light. The damage to the...

    Power Reduced - intermittent in 2017 X 100D

    Hey All. I’ve been having an intermittent issue (honestly for the last year or more) where sometimes the vehicle will display “Power Reduced - Service is required”.

    service center covered dash cam

    Several months after my Tesla had been in service, I went to look at dash cam footage of a recent incident, only to find that there was tape on the dash cam blocking its view. On previous visits to the service center, they can disconnect the power from the dash cam. So I checked that, and it...

    model 3 battery serial number

    1. How to find serial number of battery pack in model 3? 2. Is it possible for tesla service center to swap battery pack without customer knowledge? 3. How long does it take to retro fit Full Self-Driving (FSD)? Does 14days sound right?

    TMPS Rebuild/Service Kits

    I just had the OEM TPMS sensors removed from my Aero wheels to be transferred to a new set of wheels. The sensors will need to be rebuilt (new valve, seal, etc.). before being reinstalled.

    Cabin Climate control system requires service

    On our drive from VT to FL in our 2020MY, and JUST after getting into 90* temps, our AC stopped working.

    Squeaking Suspension Over Bumpy Roads

    We took delivery of our Performance Y in May. Last month, when going over any slightly bumpy surface at 40mph+, it developed this high pitched squeaking. Sounds like it coming from the drivers side front wheel well. Service center has no idea and won’t fix it unless reproduced at low speeds...

    Tesla warranty for car noise

    I have a one year old Model3LR which has more problems than I wished for. Squeaky noise in the back seat, a seat belt stuck, camera warnings. Tesla fixed the noise problem before, and when they fixed the back seat belt issue the noise came back. However when I brought that up again, they refused...

    Tesla needs better Customer Service to survive.

    This is long but I think pretty important. I had my battery pack go out 2 days after I bought my used 2012 model s and ended up going through RECELL to refurbish the battery and things were great for a couple months... I sadly had a fender bender 2 months ago, and the "Tesla approved" body shop...

    Frustrated with Tesla Service Quotes

    I have had a nightmare with Tesla service. Most recently the passenger door on Model 3 will not close. Went to scheduled service and nearest appointment was more than a week away.
