    Any potential drive to the ground Tesla vehicle owner who is concerned that not much has been said on this front since early this year?

    Tesla is working on opening up its service tools and helping owners repair their own cars with replacement parts

    The “Right to Repair”, which primarily aims to force electronic manufacturers to sell replacement parts and make their diagnostic and service manuals available to independent repair shops and consumers, is gaining some traction.

    It is currently only in place in Massachusetts, which is why it’s the only state where Tesla owners can register to access repair manuals, service documents, wiring diagrams, and part information, but Tesla President Jon McNeill now says that the automaker is working on opening the program.

    There is progress, but you won't like it.
    Tesla toolbox (that thing you use to diagnose your car and do other useful things) reportedly was withdrawn from regular people (in MA in US, also in EU) and now you get to use it only if you are approved Tesla shop.

    Does not sound to much like "opening up service tools).
