PCS should be included in battery warranty. Most likely new PCS will only be covered for balance of battery warranty going forward.

Bad news for me, Tesla has officially diagnosed a PCS failure in my car but will not cover the cost under warranty. The cost estimate from Tesla to replace the PCS is over $2000 CDN.

I'll be starting a new thread to properly discuss PCS failures.

That is ridiculous! The PCS (Power Conversion System) is located in the 'penthouse' that is literally part of the battery pack. How is that not covered under the Battery and Drive Unit limited warranty?

Is the warranty for Canada profoundly different than the US... Even if the powertrain warranty doesn't cover it(which it should), I'd expect the bumper-to-bumper part of the warranty to cover it.

The battery warranty covers the battery. Not parts for the charging system that happen to be physically co-located in the same sheet metal.

Onboard charger on the S/X is under the rear seat. They’re obviously not covered by the battery warranty. It’s not realistic to think the 3/Y will be.

No Tesla ever sold has a separate powertrain warranty.

You have a full bumper to bumper warranty, a drive unit warranty, and a battery warranty. That’s it. The drive unit and battery warranties cover very specific parts. Not the whole powertrain.
