Hi Guys and Gals

Anybody had wheel alignment done in DFW area.

I had mine done at the service center during my annual service and it costed $210.

Just wondering if anyone had tried doing wheel alignment at non Tesla shop.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

A good alignment is typically around $250 (Note: I said "good"). I haven't used anyone but Tesla because it didn't cost me anything, and they get it mostly right eventually. If I had to pay, I'd use a shop that specializes in performance and track cars. Ideally with manual tools (I believe the hit and miss part of the Tesla alignment is because of the computerized system.)

I called around and there are several shops who have never heard of Tesla and their cost is about $80-140.

I paid $210 at Dallas service center and that included taxes.

I hate to take my car to someone who has never handled Teslas before.

I have used Dallas Frame and Alignment on previous cars. I haven't used Texas Track Works, but I'd like to try them once the free runs out.

You said Free?

I thought Tesla charges for the wheel alignment?

Well, not exactly free. I purchased the prepaid service plan and so far I haven't been charged any additional fee for the several alignments I've had.

If you're in San Antonio and looking for somewhere other than Tesla to get your alignment done, Goodyear can get you squared away. I spoke with Tesla and it was $140 for the alignment, but that's without a warranty. Goodyear can do it for $115 with a 6-month warranty or $189 with a 3-year warranty.
