M3 in the Shop

Unfortunately for cars with fewer moving parts the number of breakdowns seems far higher than most other ICE cars.
Annecdotal...yes....but, Nissan Leaf forums and the Bolt forums don't seem to have as many breakdown posts as the Tesla forums. Also per several publications, the Nissan Leaf is one of the most reliable cars on the road.
 
Yes...so the service center I took it to is super busy and they only diagnosed my M3 yesterday. They said the battery pack is dead and needs a full replacement. I'm so...I don't know what to think at this point. I know they will make it right I'm just so upset .
They also said they have not seen a M3 with this type of repair at this SC.

Wow you should ask for a new car, I don't know the specifics of the lemon law but you should look into it

It would be great if you can post a receipt after the repair.

I wonder if there is so much "new" with the Model 3, much of the learning (and quality) curve is starting all over again for them. It's unfortunate that "waiting out" these initial pains puts folks at risk for losing the full tax credit. I assume the dual motor cars will add yet another potential pain point in the ramp up. Tesla-life.
