My Biggest Problem With Tesla

It's all fun & games until you need parts & service!

48w ago

I never expected to own my Tesla Model 3 for two years. I thought it would be a fun car to document the experience of, but I genuinely love the car and have happily held onto it. That's not to say the experience has been all balloons and rainbows (both great things), as it hasn't. When Tesla service centers are required, that's when the experience isn't so revolutionary. Long waits, poor communication, and no where to easily order parts. What if you want track package brake pads? Well, good luck. I don't know how to order them. Watch the video for the full breakdown of my Tesla service experiences under my nearly two years of Model 3 ownership.

  • I agree, if you want to purchase overpriced performance part, then you should be able actually ascertain them easily. However, luckily about the only thing you’ll ever need parts for is the brakes and wheels.

    • Well and broken electronics, which they refuse to let 3rd party repair shops handle/ order parts for

    • Most traditional mechanics will sucker punch you if you bring them a Tesla. However, brakes and suspension is basic. Amateur mechanics can do it with the proper parts.

  • It’s almost like someone decided to make an electric car me didn’t bother to think about everything else that car ownership entails.

  • So if you get the track pack and wear out the brake pads, you have to get new wheels each time too?
