    Crazy Things Tesla Service Has Said...

    Thought this could be fun... the crazy stuff that service personnel sometimes say that is disconnected from reality. 1.

    Tesla Service Center - Irvine

    I was browsing the Irvine permit portal and came across a new permit that mentions Tesla as the tenant.

    SF Bay Area Service Center recommendation?

    I have a Model Y performance that is having heat pump issues after taking it to my nearest service center to have the retrofit heat pump cover (AC Compressor Acoustic Cover, Model Y Part #: 1502213-00-A, I think) installed. I must say that I'm not real happy with the service there and would...

    Should I take my car to PPF service right after delivery?

    Although it may come early, I'm scheduled to pick up my TM3 on Sunday, Sep 13th. I've already talked and texted with the manager at the shop where I plan to take my vehicle for PPF & ceramic coating. He recommends bringing it to him directly after I pick up my car. The reasoning is sound - i...

    Recommendations on repairs outside of Tesla

    Hello... I have been living with a rattle and squeak in my M3 for almost a year now and Tesla Service has been pointless on tracking this down and fixing it.
