    As ry-ballz said, that’s not how warranties work, and that’s not what the manual says.

    IF the car wash should damage something (ie break the charging door, scratch a camera lens etc) - that repair would be on you and wouldn’t be a warranty item. Same as getting a mirror knocked off an ICE car - that’s not a warranty problem, it’s your problem.

    But that sure as hell doesn’t “terminate” the vehicle warranty. Unless the car wash caused the problem, the warranty is absolutely 100% in effect.

    That’s by law.

    It doesn't say it voids your warranty, or TERMINATES THE WARRENTY as you put it.
    It says that car washes can damage your car, and if they do, Tesla won't cover it.

    I most definitely wouldn't want someone washing my car that was not comfortable washing it. Go somewhere else... Pretty simple.
