The service centres are over worked and they know you have nowhere else to go so in the short term they can treat you like crap and they aren't thinking any further ahead than that.
Agree with this. I also believe that Tesla are slowly realising that 1 service centre in the UK can not accommodate servicing/fixing cars within a radius of 60-100 miles (Sometimes more) of the service centre. It seems they are slowly but surely building new Service centres in new towns/cities but not at a great pace.
Look at all other manufactures, they have service centres (Franchised) in most towns/cities plus all the other independent garages that can fix their brand of car under warranty. Tesla at the moment, does not have this, as we can not go to other independent garages to get warranty fixes. It needs to happen quickly as demand of the brand will (probably) boom, but they need these centres to accomodate our warranty issues and the amount they may/will get.
I mean look at the spread below. I feel sorry for the Penzance/St Ives crew, 160 miles in a straight line to Bristol :/. Wales just looks like it didn't get picked in the line up to play football. There is an huge void (ECHO!) between Leeds and Edinburgh (Although Newcastle may be online soon). And East Anglia......its flat.
