    Tesla Service Center Repair Experience(s)

    I wanted to detail my recent Tesla Service Center experience(s). When I took delivery, I noticed that the glovebox was misaligned. One side was "sagging". I did not measure it but it didn't look more than a few millimeters at most lower than the other side. Purely "cosmetic" since the glovebox...

    Colorado - Model 3 Rear Ended, Looking for a recommendation for an auto body shop

    My Model 3 was rear ended last night. I’m getting the insurance side of this squared away. However I’d love a recommendation for an authorized repair shop in the Denver/Boulder area. Any which people love? Or hate (so I can avoid)?

    Tesla Videos from Johnathan's World

    Hey everyone, in case you haven’t seen my Model 3 video. It shows the defects I discovered at the delivery center and after taking delivery. I dropped my car off at the Tesla Service center on 8/23/18 and my model 3 is still having work done on it. If you have any questions please feel free...

    Windshield Replacement Cost and other repairs

    I didn’t see a post covering the cost of a windshield replacement so I thought I would chime in. An object hit my windshield on the highway and caused a crack to run about 1/3 the latitudinal length from the driver side to the passenger side. Obviously this wouldn’t be repairable. My local Tesla...

    Rattle from behind steering wheel

    My model 3 has a rattling noise coming from behind the steering wheel. It can be heard at lower speeds when driving on a slightly bumpy surface. Every morning I hear it driving out on the smaller streets and pulling into a parking lot. The rattling is drown out by wind noise when going at...

    Dallas Tesla-branded "Body Repair Center"?

    A lawn guy hit my two-week old Model 3 with a weed-eater! It put several scratches and a small dent in the top of the fender. It's not horrible damage, but it's in a pretty noticeable location. Has anyone used the official Tesla "Body Repair Center"? Dallas is one of nine cities that has one...

    Hi, I got hit by a rock my first week with my M3

    In true fashion that only I can manage, on Tuesday I got hit by a rock the size of a baseball on I-35 heading to... Round Rock. Wednesday was my one-week delivery anniversary. Blue Velvet is in the shop until Tuesday. Fingers crossed that the hood repaint looks good as new!

    Broken Tiny Side Window Replacement & Break-in Deterrents

    Made the mistake of parking my Model 3 on the street in a bit of a sketchy neighborhood in Oakland last night. Someone smashed the tiny rear window, reached in, and flipped down the seat to peer in the trunk. Luckily nothing was in the trunk, or I guess the next step was more glass breakage. By...
