At the company’s November 17 Investor Day 2022 General Motors president Mark Reuss said that GM service departments have now repaired more than 11,000 Teslas. “That’s a growing business for us. I gotta say it’s a new business,” he said.


That's surprising. I wonder what type of repairs? My guess, traditional car stuff: wheels, tires, brakes, fluids, headlights, dents and the like. Diagnosing a motor, battery or software issue is likely not on the menu.

Service is reportedly a soft target for dealers to shoot at depending on where the Tesla owner lives and how busy the Tesla service center is. And in a year or two, "feel free to browse our Silverado EV, Equinox EV, Blazer EV (or depending on the dealer, Hummer EV, Cadillac Lyriq EV, Sierra EV. Buick Electra EV) while you wait..."

FYI, there is a subscription you can now get from Tesla to get access to some of their tools.
I've had a mobile 3rd party EV tech come to my place to do brake related work when I didn't do annual 'clean and lube' regularly (pin lubed, etc). Anyway had to get my rotors and brakes replaced on the front. An example of the service usage was that after doing the front brakes there is a built-in procedure for disabling the regen as well as some 'high speed' to hard brake counting to 'set' the pads.
