    My center display died two days ago and doesn't reboot. I've left four messages for the Denver service center over the past two days and they haven't called back. Anyone know how best to get them to respond, have experience with the average response time, or know if anyone is actually working there?

    thanks,
    pf-flyer

    Figured it out myself, but will post in case any of you go down this route. If you call the main tesla number and have it automatically transfer to the Denver service center, then it goes to a voicemail box that the Tesla Service center no longer has access to. So you need to call the direct line (303) 632-4200, not the 877 Tesla number.

    Astounding. I just shake my head at their frustrating communications issues.

    I call 303-632-4200 for Denver Service (then select option 2). My success rate is 50% — every other call is picked up (I call during normal business hours, of course). Once when there was no answer I tried to leave a message only to find that the voice mailbox was full. Haven't tried that again. When I do get a service rep on the line I find him or her pleasant to deal with.

    I'm due for a DU replacement on Wednesday. The replacement DU was supposed to arrive three weeks ago but I heard nothing. Finally called again on Friday and they found a DU for me (from someone else?) and I was able to schedule an appointment right away. [Sure hope that it is a "Q revision" DU, not one of the earlier ones, forgot to ask.] I was hoping to have this work done in September before having to deal with snow crossing the mountains. As it happens, a statewide snowstorm is predicted for tomorrow...

    Yes, I've got the new address in nav already and have mapped out various routes coming from Boulder. I'm worried about traffic; we don't have traffic here in Ouray County, population ~4500.

    I dealt with the new Denver SC about two weeks ago. No doubt they have adjustments with the new SC, but they're enormously helpful once you connect. I had a coolant pump problem on a Saturday morning in Wyoming. When I got to the SC (after my car sent me to the old one) I was irritated and upset. They were gentle, kind, courteous and dealt with my issues on the spot. Teething problems, no doubt. Much better location, also no doubt. Really good staff, yes!

    So I had the same issues at first with the new location. But once I heard their issues, I understood. They supposedly didnt have phone or internet working beofrethey moved in. So it has been going on for months. The guys I talked to seemed very upset and frustrated as well. Sounds like they were opening without any IT at all. Not Denvers fault, but Tesla could have done better supporting their dealerships.

    Had to go back for a 12v issue 3 weeka ago, and they were great. Made lots of changes and were fantastic.

    Agree. I have found that if I call and someone answers, the service is fantastic. If I leave a voicemail message, it is never answered. I do have luck using the email address of a service rep that had helped me in the past.
    The new SC is great. Quick, efficient and awesome staff. Plus great eating options nearby in case you are waiting for your car.

    I agree - the SC and the technicians are great, knowledgeable and helpful. The front office is near worthless, Have never successfully reached anyone at the main number, and never had a voice mail returned. I provided that feedback the last time I was in, and got a "yeah, I hear that a lot..."

    Emails and voicemails are usually unanswered for me. Even when I GET an email, I'll reply and it'll often go unanswered.

    Similar with scheduling a ranger. If they put you through to the voicemail, the ranger doesn’t call back. But when you talk to the ranger it works great, have had two door handles fail in the last month, and home service was great

    Thanks for posting this everyone, it has been useful. I was considering Denver for one of my next service visits (~100 miles closer than Minneapolis due to zero ND superchargers), but with the issues you are all having with communication I'll stick with the (almost unbelievable) awesome team at MSP. Hopefully the Denver team improves customer communication quickly.

    It's been this way for many years, it's not about the new location.
