Looks like the new service center in Renton, WA will be opening soon.

From what I understand, they will be shutting down the Seattle service center and opening this one and one in Lynwood. They are being kicked out of their Seattle location.

The Seattle SODO location seemed to be in a pretty horrible location. I just stopped by to pick up some tire pressure sensors and could NOT find a parking spot, so just finally parked in a no-parking spot for the five minutes it took to run in. Then backing back onto an active road took a bit of time. I think any improvement to that will be nice! (Though I'm not a local Seattle person, so maybe I'm wrong?)

Regardless of whether the SODO service center is closing, it has been stunning to see Tesla keep that place functional despite selling/servicing 10x as many cars as when it first opened. I thought it would fall apart, and other than the lack of parking which has always been that way, they've still been fast and appointments easily obtained.

The location is great for me, I could use public transit for drop off and pickup. There are a lot of Tesla owners in the city of Seattle who will not want to drive to Renton, Bellevue, or Lynwood.

So what happens when you have an appointment but can't find where to park the car? Does auto-pilot have a secret service mode where it keeps on circling the roads around the the SC until they need the car?;)

Does anyone have an update on when this location will be opening? Would so prefer to drive here over Bellevue.
I stopped by tonight and took a look at the progress. It is getting close, computers are now installed, printers, coffee machine, etc. The bays still need a lot of work, the lifts are installed but no tools or anything yet. My guess is late January at the pace they are on. Took a video if anyone is interested.

Spoke to the parts guy at Tesla Bellevue and he said it's supposed to open early Feb. I asked about superchargers, and he said they will have them, but not 100% they will be public. He did say they would help anyone in a pinch though, even with the service only superchargers.

I was told the same thing last weeks when I was at Bellevue for fixing my death rattle.

Bellevue has two super chargers in site but they’re in the back behind a locked gate at night and only used to quickly charge up
The vehicles after they’ve done work on the cars in the shop.
