Servicing questions model S

I have a used model S p85 2014, is there any way to see the servicing history without contacting Tesla (as communication is typically poor). The app servicing section seems to be more about reactive maintenance than preventative routine maintenance.

All the thread searches relating to servicing seems to point at it being rarely needed but looking at Rich Rebuilds servicing guides to the brakes and wheel alignment it seems really important and pretty low cost to do. The guide is based on the m-3 but the principles must be the same for all Teslas:

If you refer to the manual it’ll tell you the things they recommend are looked at and with what frequency.

There’s no way of knowing what the car has had done to it without asking Tesla.

You could request a service appointment via the app asking them what they think the car should have done and when. I did this when they dropped the requirement for an annual service in typically confusing fashion - I wanted to make sure I could evidence I fulfilled the small print on the finance agreement.
