2013 Tesla Model S: New Touchscreen is Working Fine

February 27, 2013

2013 Tesla Model S

Not sure why, but Tesla wanted to replace the touchscreen in our Model S even though it was working fine after some time with the technicians. Seemed a little over cautious but we weren't about to argue. I dropped our Model S off at the Tesla service center around 9:30 in the morning with a promise to have it back sometime midday.

Sure enough, at about 1:00 in the afternoon, the service writer called back and said it was ready for pickup. He even asked if I wanted it washed. I headed down to the service center again, signed an invoice and was out of there in 5 minutes.

Other than the fact that all my previous presets and information were wiped out, there was no major drawback to the screen swap. The new one appears to be working fine and hopefully it will be our last. Time will tell.
