    My new Model S got rear ended 2 months ago and the Tesla approved body shop is still waiting on parts.

    Has anyone else had similar problems?

    Check the threads, you will find plenty of the same complaints.
    Parts can hold up a Tesla for months!

    I have a '12 P85 and just finished waiting 12 weeks for a drivers headlight... the whole time the car was in the shop. :/

    Ridiculous!
    And now with the Model 3 coming out what is Tesla planning with auto-parts?
    At some point they must have a parts wharehouse, or even a parts store at the service centers. I don't see it happening, maybe they will figure something out but it cannot be ignored!

    Maybe they are improving?
    Was T-Boned in a brand new (200 miles in the one week of ownership) on October 9.
    On the 18th was told that 80%of the parts have arrived. No idea about the timeline for the 20% left or the actual repair time.
    But my deep depression over driving a rental Jeep has somewhat lifted.
