Tesla Service and Auto Body Repair Page Gets Redesign



Following Tesla’s move to begin offering service subscriptions in return for diagnostic tools for maintenance and repairs, the company has reportedly updated its site to accommodate the new set of services.

Tesla has updated its service website with a new design, as well as new information about signing up for service subscriptions for approved professional maintenance and repairs, as well as approved body shops and quick access to VIN Recall searches, among other features (via @Tesla_Adri).

The redesign also gives users the ability to easily see a map of nearby Tesla service centers, while also giving mechanics the option to become certified as a Tesla Body Shop.

While Tesla’s Toolbox 3 diagnostic software and HV battery shipping evaluation tools can be purchased for $333 USD a month or $2,000 USD a year, the company offers service information in four different subscription packages – $31.88 USD hourly, $106.25 USD daily, $371.88 USD monthly or $3,187.50 USD annually.

The move towards a subscription model for mechanics also comes following the passing of a right-to-repair measure in Massachusetts earlier this year, forcing Tesla to give third-party repair shops access to diagnostic tools.

Still, right-to-repair laws are far and few between across states in the U.S., and the subscription packages seem to be a workaround for Tesla to ensure owners and shops still pay Tesla for access to these diagnostic and maintenance tools.
