Several recent threads on service and repairs continue to trouble me. Specifically, when does Tesla get called out for this: Mini Settles with FTC Over Magnuson-Moss Warranty Law Violation Starting in 2012, there were several threads on here regarding the Model S, and the requirement to take your car "to Tesla" for paid service as a provision to keep your warranty intact. It doesn't appear that anything has transpired in almost 4 years. If you read page 108 of the current Model S owners manual, there is still wording like: "and take Model S to Tesla at the regularly scheduled maintenance intervals of every 12 months, or every 12,500 miles (20,000 km), whichever comes first." "Model S must be serviced by Tesla-certified technicians" "Do not change or top up Battery coolant and brake fluid yourself. Tesla service technicians replace fluids at the regularly scheduled service intervals: • Brake fluid. Every 2 years or 25,000 miles (40,000 km), whichever comes first. • Battery coolant. Every 5 years or 62,500 miles (100,000 km), whichever comes first." https://www.teslamotors.com/sites/default/files/Model-S-Owners-Manual.pdf This needs to be resolved, as it appears to violate MM. If they require you to use dealer service to keep your car in warranty, it has to be provided free. And when do service manuals get released beyond Massachusetts? I plan on DIY'ing routine maintenance items as I have on every other car I've owned, without fear of voiding the warranty. Audi, VW, Toyota, Infiniti, Ford, and the list goes on. Perhaps it's time for the FTC to take a closer look. I'm surprised no one has pushed this issue further, unless I'm missing something? I doubt they requested and were granted a waiver. Model 3 buyers are going to feel very differently than $100K buyers. Discuss.
