Parts, Body and Paint Repair Limited Warranty

Repair or replacement of Tesla-branded parts purchased directly from Tesla, over-the-counter, online or purchased and installed by Tesla Service or a Tesla Body Shop, may be covered under the Tesla Parts, Body & Paint Repair Limited Warranty.

This limited warranty covers the repair or replacement necessary to remedy any “failures” that are determined by Tesla to have occurred under normal use.

“Failure” means the complete failure or inability of a covered part to perform the function(s) for which it was designed, due to defects in material or workmanship of the part manufactured or supplied by Tesla, which occur under normal use. Failure does not include the gradual loss in operating performance due to normal wear and tear.

The Tesla Parts, Body & Paint Repair Limited Warranty begins on the purchase date of the part(s), and coverage extends for a period of 12 months. Specific categories of parts have unique warranty coverage periods:

  • Sheet metal: Limited lifetime
  • Drive Unit: 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first
  • Vehicle High Voltage Battery: 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first
  • Wall Connectors: 4 years

Frequently Asked Questions

If I choose not to service my Tesla car, will this void my warranty?
We recommended that you service your car as listed in your Owner’s Manual, but it will not affect your New Vehicle Limited Warranty if you do not. It can affect your warranty if you receive a service alert and do not arrange a prompt appointment with a Tesla Service Center, and this results in further damage to your car.

With an Extended Service Agreement for Model S and Model X, your coverage can be affected if recommended service is not performed. See the Extended Service Agreement Terms and Conditions for further details.

Do I have to take my car to the Tesla Service Center?
Not always. With our over-the-air software updates, remote diagnostics and the support of our Mobile Service technicians, we reduce the need to visit a Service Center. In the event you do need a service appointment, we recommend you take your car to a Tesla Service Center. You can schedule an appointment through your Tesla Account.

If you choose to take your car to a non-Tesla shop for maintenance or repairs, if could affect your warranty if any problems occur.

Does the New Vehicle Limited Warranty transfer to the new owner if I sell my car?
Yes. Your New Vehicle Limited Warranty will follow your car and be transferred to the new owner when a car ownership transfer is performed through Tesla. To transfer ownership of your Tesla, email us at CustomerSupport@tesla.com.
