Tesla Model 3 Accident, Repair Time, And Myths Busted!

This site is reader-supported. When you click through links on our site, we may be compensated.

My Tesla Model 3 was hit while parked in the parking lot at work (Sentry Mode OFF). I document my month long journey on dealing with insurance (GEICO), getting a Tesla rental, getting parts ordered & delivered, total repair time, and what I learned from the body shop about some of the myths surrounding Tesla repairs.

P.S. I apologize for the random pixelations in video. Been having issues with iMovie and I have a support ticket open with Apple.
