Why Select a Tesla Approved Repair Center?
It’s important to choose a certified Tesla body repair center due to Tesla’s are equipped with highly advanced driving systems such as autopilot. Certain repairs may require to have one of those systems to be calibrated such as cameras or radar sensors. Only a Tesla authorized body shop has access to verify that those systems are operating properly, as well as to perform those calibrations if needed. Here at Tony’s Body shop we perform those calibrations in house, being able to handle the repairs that come in. We have the same equipment used as a Tesla service center, and able to perform these calibrations. Sometimes an alignment is required as part of the calibration process, well Tony’s Body Shop does its own in-house alignments, having their own mechanic. A collision alignment is very different from a discount tire alignment.
What about shops that are not certified ? Shops not certified can only perform limited repairs, even then it’s questionable if the repair was done correctly. Non certified shops have the capability to purchase things like a bumper cover, they will not have the ability to calibrate that front radar unit, in some situations it may need to be calibrated. They will not be able to perform that repair or have knowledge if that repair is 100% the first time, even though they were able to buy that bumper cover. There are also things that are restricted such as structural parts, air bags and suspension parts, which are thought of as more crucial than a bumper cover. This is why Tesla restricts those items to only certified shops.
