    Taking any prescriptions to help you cope? Hope your Tesla has a quick recovery. I'm sure she'll survive.

    The thought of not having my Tesla for anything longer than 2 days legitimately scares me lol I don't know how you can handle a 2 month wait...:(

    talked with body shop still need anothe 2 to 3 weeks waiting for parts. Any way to complain to Tesla? I guess there is not much to complain on the body shop, but just want to see if can push it faster.

    I’m on a three week vacation and I rented a Tesla. I think I have a problem.

    I have a service appointment tomorrow. Even when I called ahead to book the date, they couldn't tell me if I would be getting another Tesla as a loaner. To make matters worse, the service center said they have extremely limited Tesla loaners which is making me more anxious. Oh, the horror of driving an ICE car :eek: If they can't give me another Tesla, I may just have to defer getting my minor issue fixed or even drive out of state to another service center. Talk about paranoia o_O

    I can feel your frustration. I have broken glasses (theft!) and patched up the broken windows so I could drive my Tesla while the bodyshop waits for the glasses from Tesla factory. It took them 3 weeks to get the glasses!!! Finally, yesterday the car is in for repair.

    I have since stated this new line to every person that asks me about my car:
    "Great car - the best you can own. But buy two, in case one gets into accident. It WILL be in the shop for MONTHS."

    this is simply ridiculous, since for me it was an accident, so no way for me to get loaner. Wait for months actually means loses for me. If I pay 1k per month for lease, 2 months in body shop, means I loses $2K.

    Nothing we can do here?

    wangjue,

    purchase loaner car on your insurance policy. It's not that expensive. Also, I've notice that recently Meemic started offering something akin to "gap" insurance but cheaper. It's somewhere around 100 dollars per month but covers the cost of getting a new (as in newmodel) tesla should you have an accident that results in the car being "totaled". There are lots of options regarding insurance these days.... that is, until self driving cares become the norm and the number of people owning cars and thus purchasing insurance dwindles... :)
