Who Is Fixing Tesla’s Repair and Recall Problems?

Here’s a recent reveal by one mechanic on who Tesla owners have to go to for maintenance and repairs. Hint---it’s not Tesla. Plus, how one manufacturer claims they will surpass Tesla sales by 2025.

Tesla Repair Problems

In earlier articles we’ve learned that despite the remarkable engineering feat of what goes into making a Tesla the leading EV manufacturer of the world, Tesla owners are often faced with repairs they are told cannot be done without an expensive total replacement of the affected component and often even the system.

Worse yet, compared to other automakers, Tesla offers vastly fewer Service Centers to handle problems owners have with their Tesla’s that will include a growing number of recall issues that need fixing.

So, what is a Tesla owner to do when their car needs repair---even some regular EV maintenance---done to it but the waiting time is forever, and the service center fix is prohibitively high? Think (and thank) GM.

GM Predicted to Overtake Tesla

According to a recent Scotty Kilmer YouTube channel episode, GM is taking up the repair and service slack of Tesla Service Centers by offering repairs since 2021 for Tesla vehicles. The significance of this is that reportedly, up to 25% of all Tesla’s sold have recall issues that need addressing.

But is this a true and accurate number from Scotty on what it really means to Tesla owners? Here’s an informative article titled “Tesla "Recall" Complete Q&A: Differentiation Must Be Made Between a Recall and Software Update” that puts his claim in a different light.

However, maintenance, repair and recall issues are not Tesla’s only problem. According to GM officials, GM claims it will overtake Tesla’s sales by 2025!

That said, watch the video posted below about GM’s role in supporting Tesla owners and how that GM claims it will surpass Tesla sooner than others predict and how and why this is going to happen.
