Why Tesla Owners Should Stick with Approved Collision Centers?
May 24, 2024

As a Tesla owner, you know your electric vehicle represents the cutting edge of automotive technology. From its innovative electric powertrain to the advanced driver assistance systems, your Tesla is a sophisticated machine. So, when the unfortunate happens and your prized EV needs collision repairs, it's crucial to entrust the work to specialists who know these cars inside and out. That's why Tesla highly recommends taking your vehicle to Tesla preferred collision centers.

Certified expertise
Tesla's authorized collision repair centers aren't like other auto body shops. Their technicians undergo extensive training directly from Tesla to ensure they have the specialized skills and knowledge required to properly restore Tesla's unique aluminum structure and advanced technology systems.
From repairing the battery pack to recalibrating sensors and cameras, these certified experts know every inch of your Tesla and exactly how to fix it right according to the manufacturer's exacting standards.

Genuine Tesla parts
One key advantage of Tesla's approved collision centers is that they use only genuine original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts sourced directly from Tesla. Aftermarket parts simply aren't made to the same rigorous specifications, meaning they may not provide a precise fit or proper functionality.
OEM parts help ensure optimal safety, performance, and reliability that third-party parts can't match. This attention to detail helps maintain your Tesla's original factory build quality.

Advanced equipment and tools
In addition to the technical expertise, Tesla's approved centers also have access to the specialized equipment, tools, and technology required for collision repairs on these highly sophisticated EVs. This goes beyond just welding gear and body shop tools. Many locations have Tesla's manufacturer diagnostic software, sensor calibration rigs, high voltage safety PPE, and other gear to service every aspect of your Tesla to factory standards.
Topping it all off, repairs completed at an approved Tesla collision center are backed by the company and are covered under any applicable warranties. If an issue arises related to the repairs, you're protected. Third-party autobody shops simply can't make the same warranty assurances. For restoring your EV safely and properly, stick with the experts who know your vehicle best at the Tesla auto repair shop.
