    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.
