    And this why I will buy a Tesla. I like fix my own car. So, I want to be able to go to the dealer, auto parts store, Amazon and own parts to fix my car. I know you can go to eBay and the junkyard for Tesla parts but I have that option also.

    Good. it will give a chance to other car manufacturers to move ahead and eventually push Tesla out of market, as it has been already done with American minivan manufacturers, and now pretty close with American sedan makers.

    ...or you could just get a nice Chevy Bolt. You could pull up in front of the Now You Know guys' house, honk your horn and yell, "Hey, look! I got a Chevy Bolt! **** you guys! I can repair this as easily as if it were an ICE Malibu, without having to be a combination brain surgeon, CCC hacker and James Bond! I CAN GET PARTS FOR THIS AT AUTO ZONE! Well, gotta go! I'm having lunch with my good buddy BOB LUTZ! HAHAHAAAA!!!" And then burn rubber away from there while you laugh your head off.

    Let TESLA dy in peace. Huawei ban is out, no chinese will buy any tesla and here in europe the demand is going back due to the huawei ban and tesla behaviour. In the US sales have dropped to 50% from 20.000 each month in second half of 2018 to 10.000 recently that will drop far more in july when the state reward will be cut again. Watch the sales and production and have an eye on delivery time to get behind why panasonic does no further investments ... cause they had been fooled by tesla cause their first factory runs after 5 years just at 66% of capacity when tesla had promised them far higher sales. And in europe every month 1-3 new ev cars will be introduced till 2021 and now ev with 35 kwh batteries for 20.000 are announced for end 2019, many from volkswagen or its brands seat (spain) and skoda (tschech rep) ... same parts just cheaper. In a few month you can buy a cheap new car plant in shanghai that nefer went in production and no american company wants to buy cause no american product will be purchased in china from that plant.

    I think it has to do with lawyers and the American way of sue first. If someone died like a family or child, like what has happened forever in the consumer industry. Companies must be proactive in being defensive regardless. Because of the huge insurance scamming on both ends. Millions of accidents happen every year by many makes. ICE cars are firebombs on wheels regardless of what you have heard of Teslas. For every Tesla fatality, there are thousands a day by every other manufacturer. In the early days of cars death rates were so high they started to impact the upper middle class and dynastic class. This became the combo for sucking money away from the people and car companies over time. Those that couldn't invest in safety merged or went out of business. Insurance and everything involved in cars became its own industry because regular people could not afford to lose transport in the new suburb and highway systems that destroyed cities and public transit infrastructure. Long story short the value of all the spin-off industries was a specific directive by the special interests of that time. It boils down to the value chain or cycle. EV tech eliminates oil and gas, excessive insurance premiums, accidents, thus eventually shops for fixing if Tesla or others want it. This still may take decades. But just like mobile devices and many items we buy. We have eliminated engineered to last to now trash or recycle. This is still not ideal. As it's important to have the ability to repair refurbish etc. I think it may need to be a lawyer law thing to protect Tesla from liability once a vehicle is out of their circle of management. Obviously, if it's a defective safety issue out of the factory that is still needed. I would expect anything older than 10000 hours or 10 years falls under a different set of rules. So they allow access to rebuild and refurbish. Otherwise, it must be put into recycling. Just like Cisco and many other critical systems. You need a certification every year. To maintain the latest tech for repair and feedback. Also, i know for sure they do not want hackers good or bad destroying any systems. That is the most important IP because no other place in the world is as well off in the AI autopilot world. Not even the defense industry.

    Here's a better idea ... go to your local bank ... get them to loan you $34,000 ... then go to your local gas station and purchase a gallon of HI TEST gasoline. Wait until midnight. Now pour the gasoline on your pile of cash and LIGHT IT ON FIRE! Serioulsly. You will probsbly get more 'joy' out of doing so than buying a over-hyped POS. Tesla's are pieces of junk. $34,000 for a writtten off pile of metal? Apparently lunacy reigns supreme!

    Tesla doesnt have thoseon the restricted list just for fun. they dont have enough parts to fix the cars at their own shops so no shit they are not gonna give you 1st hand parts. you wanna look at the specs and make your own part go for it but until Tesla can handle their own work and kee their own parts in stock, their is no reason at all they should be handing the parts they need to fix cars in their shops that have been waiting for them for months sometimes, to you.

    you cant just take out labor charges as if you doing your own labor isnt costing you money. when you are doing that work you could also be working on someone elses car at that same time and making money. so just becuase you did the work yourself doesnt mean you are not wasting that time which if you weren't fixing your car you could be making money on others. so yes anyone like you who just subtracks labor cost just becuae they do the work themselves are not smart. TIME IS MONEY. whether its your time or someone elses time its MONEY you are either making or losing.

    I’m a DIY’er and backyard mechanic and do almost all repairs of my vehicles myself. I understand the importance of being able to get parts myself to keep the car running, but I’ve never known of any normal car part stores that sell body, glass, and frame components. If I needed those I would go to a junkyard, I understand that there aren’t many out there that have these guys in them. But from the website access, it seems as though it might be restricted unless you are a body shop/or approved body shop that has insurance/business license, etc, and then they would provide you a login. Maybe your friend with the auto shop can request special access? I’m hoping other parts are easily able to be purchased in the future for you and others. Anyways, love your videos!

    Why i read those comparisons about tesla and iphone...this is so stupid...if you repair your own iphone your life does not depend on it, if you screw up with the repair. Tesla is new company that is trying to prove and it is proving it that electric cars are the future. Also they r working on autopilot technology and for sure they don't want people do repairs by themselves....because when anything goes wrong there will be a huge titles everywhere BREAKING NEWS TESLA CRASHED BY ITSELF, TESLA BURNED IN FLAMES, TESLA KILLED SOMEONE and so on. If everyone starts poking with technology that they don't understand this will be happening for sure.

    Some things never change. As far as your analysis goes, I'd expect to find some additional damage once you get into the repair, so you might want to add a contingency if the estimate didn't already have one added. 10% of the parts value might be a good starting point. Unless you absolutely love working on cars as a hobby, its most likely going to be difficult to justify paying so much for that wrecked car.

  • The Neighbors

    I can understand why Tesla does this though. Parts should be prioritized for nonsalvage because those cars because they are the actual customers of Tesla and supply is limited for parts because Tesla is ramping up production and parts are all going towards production to meet demand.
