TESLA Motors is truly an amazing automobile manufacturer that has been introducing several new vehicles since 2003. These new vehicles have many state-of-the-art improvements ranging from the way the chassis is constructed to the types of material used to construct body components.
The qualities that make Tesla vehicles so unique and valuable also require certified repairs. All Tesla models are constructed with lightweight aluminum. Steel has been the standard material on vehicles for years. Aluminum is a lightweight material that allows Tesla’s advanced electric engines to get more mileage per charge. However, aluminum repairs require special tools and techniques that many auto repair shops do not understand. Techniques used to repair steel parts will damage aluminum parts. This makes it vital to only get Tesla repairs from a certified Tesla body shop.
Tesla Structural Repairs: Our technicians have received state of the art training from the Tesla Factory in Fremont, California. This dedication to training is required to learn all of the intricate details of working on Tesla vehicles. Even windshield replacement requires certified knowledge when it comes to Tesla cars. Few collision repair facilities are capable of correctly restoring vehicles like these – engineered with groundbreaking technology and design. Dorn’s supports the advancements of Tesla vehicles and wants our customers to feel confident that they have a trustworthy Tesla body shop to turn to.
Tesla Windshield Replacement: Even something as simple and mundane as windshield replacement with other vehicles is not with your Tesla. The windshield is part of the of the structural integrity of the vehicle. If it is not replaced to Tesla Factory Specs using Tesla proven equipment and parts, it could fail in the event of an accident causing more damage to the vehicle and even worse, rendering the SRS system less effective or useless. This is even more with the Model X. Its size and weight make so that only certified installers should replace it.
At Dorn’s we are also certified to perform mechanical repairs on collision damaged vehicles. We have tooling and equipment including software to tie into your vehicles on-board electronics and diagnostic ECMs. From removing suspension, the main battery and power supply, to Four Wheel Alignments and tires, we can handle your Tesla “out of warranty” or collision repair service needs.
Tesla has earned 5 star safety ratings from IIHS, which is no easy feat. They have also done so while producing some of the most unique vehicles on the road today. These high tech designs and features require a certified repair. Whether you have just been in a collision, or you are getting wear and tear maintenance, a certified repair is vital. Only a Tesla repair center will have the proper tools and knowledge to keep the advanced safety features of your Tesla functioning as intended.
Tesla vehicles are completely interconnected. In order to perform any sort of repair, the technician has to understand the vehicles construction completely. An improper repair at one point, could cause mechanical or digital errors elsewhere. This is why Dorn’s has dedicated so much time and resources into developing ourselves into a Tesla body shop.
Tesla vehicles cannot be transported by just anyone. Our certified drivers have been specifically trained by Tesla Roadside and Tesla Service Centers in order to learn how to properly transport Tesla vehicles. Improper towing or transport can cause serious damage to your vehicle.
Being the certified repairers, we understand the complexities of your vehicle. Rest assured that when we transport your Tesla, it will arrive when expected as expected.
