No Colorado places will do alignment?

    My Tesla hit 42K miles and I got new tires. All places I call say that they can't do alignment on a Model 3. They say that in their regular meetings, they decided not to. But, much info says an independent shop should easily do the alignment. Strange. Has anyone found a shop besides the SC that can do the alignment?

    I went to stans alignment in Aurora to do my Model S. Most independent shops will do it but places like Firestone and other chains I found wont do it. I've seen a couple other people go to some other shops to get theirs done but I've taken my ICE cars to Stan's for years because they will do custom alignment specs for race cars and they are low car friendly with their alignment racks.

    I had an alignment at the Littleton service center at the time of my 4 year service. No complaints (about that).

    I took my Model X around Miami to try to get an alignment. I could not find one single place that would do it.

    I guess only Tesla can do it and they charge $260

    Not sure why these shops are telling you no, maybe they don’t like money? I’ve had my Model 3 aligned at Firestones in the Springs and here in Las Vegas. There were a couple that looked at me sideways but they look like they huffed paint sooooo...

    Just make sure when they lift the car they use the proper jack pads/pucks as these cars don’t have pinch welds for lifting

    I have heard all kinds of silly excuses to not touch the care based on absolutely nothing at all!

    Large volume sale of model 3 only started ~2 years and these vehicles are only now needing alignments. I think it will take a while for the shops to catch up, especially since there seems to be an anti-Tesla bias.
