    Wow. Didn't think they'd get one this quickly, more like 2015 or beyond so that's good news.

    Now I can come clean - Jerome had told me about this after Teslive but asked that I keep it quiet. Calgon, take me away - it will be awesome to have a service center!

    I was just at the Houston gallery last weekend and one of the Product Specialists told me that the manager of the San Antonio service center is in town (SA) now, scouting for a location. There is also an opening on the Tesla Careers page for a Service Technician in San Antonio. Hopefully it won't be long now.

    So one of the Product Specialists at this weekend's test drive event in San Antonio is going to be working out of the SA location. He told me that SA will be the new "Service Center Plus" concept. They will have some product specialist and store type space, not just a Service Center.

    Unfortunately he also told me they still haven't settled on a location. So I expect we still have a while to wait.

    Tesla Texas team, if you're reading this, anywhere along the north section of 1604 between 281 and 35 would be good for me.

    I usually just take a drive up to Austin on a Saturday for a lunch date with the wife. The SC will do it for free, if you have the pre-paid service plan (and maybe even without?).

    Yes, have done it as part of service every time (twice). Had a tire replaced at Sears a year or so ago, they had the right lifting equipment and everyone came over to look at things.

    On another note, heard that the front runner location for our Service Center Plus (Service + Gallery) is around 281 and 1604.

    Thanks Cattledog...I guess you're taking your S's over to Austin or are you simply calling and following the online service process?Very good to hear on the SC location, while I would have voted for 10 and 1604, I can totally understand why 281 and 1604 is better.Thanks again and hope to meet you one of these days -

    Thanks CGIGuy, sounds like a good approach...the wife would definitely go for it!

    Yes, they come pick up at about 8 AM and return about 8 PM. We have a throwaway BMW (hah!) so I haven't taken a loaner. I live just north of downtown in Monte Vista so 1604 and anything is about the same 15 minutes for me. I tried to get a dozen parking spaces for a Tesla show-off 18 months ago at Pearl, never quite clicked. Might shoot again fo the fall, however whereas last time it would have been educational, now I think people would perceive it as showing off.

    Ok it's over a year later. I keep hearing "soon," and it has been listed on the Tesla website for around 6 months in grey. Has anyone heard anything new about this?

    We have two threads on this.
    San Antonio Service Center

    Mods, can you please merge?

    Last I heard we were waiting on the zoning commission. I've poked around the minutes and agendas but haven't seen anything that looks likely.

    That's good to hear. My son will be stationed at Lackland afb once he finishes tech school. So I'll have at least one place to charge when I go visit him next year.

    I think this will be the "Service Plus" concept we've heard about before. We had strong suspicions of the general area but I think this is the most specific info about the location we've had so far.
    By the way there are already two different San Antonio Service Center threads. Not sure if this should be merged with those, but those two should definitely be merged.
