Why You Need a Tesla Mechanic

Repairing a Tesla electric vehicle (EV) involves a specific set of procedures and considerations due to the unique nature of these high-tech, electric cars. Tesla vehicles are known for their cutting-edge technology, and while they are designed to be reliable and durable, accidents or wear and tear can necessitate repairs. But they also need maintenance and management. Here’s a general overview of what it entails to repair a Tesla:

Diagnostic Assessment:

When a Tesla owner brings their vehicle in for repair, the first step is to perform a comprehensive diagnostic assessment. Tesla cars are equipped with advanced onboard diagnostic systems that can often pinpoint the source of issues. These diagnostics help the technician identify the problem areas.


Tesla Service Centers:

Tesla operates a network of service centers worldwide where certified technicians work on Tesla vehicles. These technicians receive specialized training to handle Tesla-specific repairs and maintenance.

Battery System:

The most critical component of a Tesla EV is its battery pack. If the battery is damaged, it may need to be replaced, which can be costly. Tesla has different warranty policies depending on the model and age of the vehicle, which may cover battery-related repairs. In some cases, battery modules can be replaced individually, reducing costs.

Software Updates:

Tesla vehicles receive regular over-the-air (OTA) software updates, which can address bugs, enhance performance, and introduce new features. These updates are often part of routine maintenance and can be performed at a Tesla service centre.

Electronics and Sensors:

Tesla vehicles are equipped with a multitude of sensors and electronic components for their advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and Autopilot features. Repairing or calibrating these systems requires specialized knowledge and equipment.

Parts Availability:

Tesla maintains a supply chain for replacement parts, and their availability can vary depending on the model and location. It’s important to check the availability of parts before scheduling a repair. Since 1985 Gary’s Automotive has developed deep parts connections.

Third-Party Repair (like us):

While Tesla encourages owners to use its network of service centers and certified repair facilities, some third-party mechanics may have experience working on electric vehicles and can perform basic maintenance or repairs. However, for major repairs, it’s often recommended to go to an authorized Tesla service center to ensure the highest quality of service and access to genuine Tesla parts. Call us up 604-337-0477 we will let you know if we can work on your electric vehicle.

Cost and Warranty:

Repair costs for Tesla vehicles can vary widely depending on the type and extent of the damage, as well as whether the vehicle is under warranty. Tesla offers limited warranties for various components, including the battery and drivetrain, which can provide coverage for a specified period or mileage. Our 3 year warranty does not extend to Tesla’s at this time.

DIY Repairs:

Tesla vehicles are highly complex, and attempting DIY repairs without proper knowledge and tools can be risky and void warranties. It’s generally recommended to rely on certified technicians for significant repairs or maintenance.

In conclusion, repairing a Tesla involves a combination of advanced technology, specialized training, and access to genuine parts. Tesla owners should prioritize safety and quality when considering repairs and consult with Tesla service centers or certified technicians to ensure their vehicle is properly maintained and repaired.

Why Independent Mechanics don’t Repair Tesla Vehicles

Tesla’s lack many mechanical components, the job of repairing them has more in common with a robotics engineer. Tesla computer systems contain proprietary technology which is a brick wall for independent repair. Tesla service centres such as the upcoming one in East Vancouver can repair Tesla vehicles more cost efficiently than independent mechanics, so while we would like to fix your Tesla more in-depth we aren’t really able to.

Tesla’s simply push electricity to the motor. No engines, no transmissions, no injectors, few shafts, gears, cogs, chains, belts, there is not much mechanical to fix. Meanwhile gasoline or diesel vehicles convert a fluid into a gas via chemical reaction called combustion. This combustion provides kinetic energy that through the use of gears, shafts, belts, chains, and is mechanically diverted to the necessary components such as air conditioning and your transmission
