Katie and Tesla are Back! My Repair Experience


“Hey everyone, welcome back to my YouTube channel! Today, I wanted to share my recent experience of getting my Tesla repaired after an accident. I’m so excited to have my car back after a month of waiting, which was actually shorter than the expected 2-3 months that other Tesla owners have reported. You won’t believe the challenges some of them have faced. But let’s dive into my repair journey and how it differed from the norm. Oh, and before we start, I just want to give a shoutout to my amazing partner, Katie, for her incredible support throughout this process. Okay, let’s get started!”

Introduction and Repair Duration

“Alright, so first things first. I can’t express how thrilled I am to finally have my Tesla back on the road. It took a whole two months for the repairs to be completed, which, believe it or not, is considered quite fast compared to the experiences of others. Just take Marques Brownlee, for example. His car took nearly three months to repair! So, I’m definitely grateful for the comparatively shorter duration.”

Supply Chain Issues and Repair Quality

“Now, let’s talk about the challenges that many Tesla owners, including myself, faced during the repair process. One major factor causing delays was the ongoing chip shortages, which affected the availability of parts. I’ve heard stories from fellow Tesla owners who waited for 2-4 months without any updates on their repairs. However, I have to say that I’m really impressed with the repair quality I received. The process was seamless, and my car looks and feels as good as new. By the way, it’s important to note that chip shortages and supply chain issues are independent factors, despite some misconceptions.”

Extensive Repairs and Replacements

“Now, let me walk you through the extensive repairs that were done on my car. The accident caused a dent in the hood, resulting in an annoying sound and discomfort while driving at high speeds. The repair shop had to replace multiple parts to ensure everything was back in top shape. We’re talking about the hood, cowl, wheels, roof, seats, tracks, rocker, pillars, and even the floor. It’s quite astonishing to think about the number of components that needed to be replaced. However, it’s worth mentioning that such extensive repairs might have an impact on the car’s resale value.”

Cost Breakdown and Insurance Coverage

“Now, let’s get into the financial aspect. Initially, I was expecting the repair cost to be around $12,000. However, I was pleasantly surprised when the final bill came out to be significantly lower. Since the repair shop was able to fix the dent without using new parts, the total cost ended up being around $4,000. Luckily, my insurance covered the majority of the expenses, and I only had to pay a $500 deductible. I can’t stress enough how relieved I am to have insurance coverage in times like these. And of course, a huge thanks to Katie for contributing to the deductible. It really made a difference.”

Additional Information and Conclusion

“Before we wrap up, I wanted to mention a minor oversight that occurred during the repair process. The tire pressure wasn’t properly filled, but it was an easy fix. Now, shifting gears a bit, let’s talk about Katie. She’s been amazing and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in applied linguistics. I’m so proud of her achievements! Alright, before we say goodbye, I just want to remind all of you to keep pushing towards your goals for this year. You’ve got this!
