I was rear ended while stopped at a traffic signal in my model S a couple of weeks ago. My S is a 2016 90D. Unfortunately I have experience with Tesla body shops since this car was hit last fall while parked and my previous S was hit when my wife was driving. The person that rear ended me did not have insurance evidence to present to the CHP and local sheriff officers. While trying to flee the scene a CHP motorcycle officer stopped him and since it was on a surface street the CHP called in the local sheriffs. So far it appears he is an uninsured driver even though the car he was driving is a 2017 Toyota Camry. We have a sheriff report that places full responsibility on the Camry driver. Since I have had the car serviced before at European Motors, a Tesla approved body shop in Costa Mesa, I dropped off my car there. They have moved to a large building next door to the Costa Mesa service center. My insurance is State Farm which we have had for decades. State Farm has authorized approximately $12,500 for repairs. European Motors quoted us another $4800 for labor on top of State Farm's estimate. Apparently State Farm will only pay a low labor rate. The body shop says State Farm is the only carrier that will not pay their labor rate. I had a friendly conversation with a representative from State Farm claims today. He asked me if I can verify that other carriers are paying their labor costs--or course I cannot at this point--this is where I need your help. I explain that the shop needs special training for the their technicians before Tesla will sell them parts and aluminum cars are more difficult fix, hence require greater skill and training. It sounds like their may be some negotiating room in my discussion. So please reply with information regarding your experience with insurance approving the labor rates for Tesla body work. Thank you!
