Teslas Can Now Detect Issues And Automatically Order Replacement Parts

Tesla is introducing a new feature to its vehicles which is able to detect mechanical problems and automatically order necessary replacement parts.

The owner of a Tesla took to Reddit a few days ago to post an image showing the service request notification they received on the infotainment screen of their Model 3.

“An unexpected condition has been detected with the Power Conversion System on your Model 3. A replacement part has been pre-shipped to your preferred Tesla Service Center. Please use your Tesla Mobile App or your Tesla account to schedule a service visit appointment now,” the notification read.

The electric car manufacturer confirmed the presence of this issue-detection system in a statement to Electrek, stating “Our cars can keep tabs on certain components to let you know if they need replacing and order parts ahead of your next service visit.”

CEO Elon Musk stated earlier this year that he was making improved service operations for Tesla vehicles one of his top priorities.

“I want to note that one of our major priorities this quarter is improving service operations. Really, from my standpoint, when I think about what my priorities are this quarter, it’s improving service in North America,” he stated.

According to Musk, Tesla owners will be able to cancel a part being ordered by the car if they don’t think it’s necessary. This is an important, and very useful, aspect of the feature, because it might not always be convenient or imperative for owners to order necessary replacement parts immediately.

    This is getting old….trying to improve their poor product on the fly again! Tesla just cannot make a reliable vehicle after years of trying! Tesla needs to sell out to Toyota or a similar car company that know how to make cars.
