Tesla is in the process of creating a fleet of mobile repair vans which will be able to do minor jobs at your work or home. Not sure when they'll achieve full US coverage but I hope it'll scale with Model 3 sales.
are you even listening to what you're saying? "They're in the process of creating mobile vans for minor repairs". What about major repairs? This isn't some small issue, it's a big deal if there aren't any places to take the car for repair.

It's great that you're willing to overlook a bad paint job but fanboy loyalty isn't going to travel far for the vast majority of consumers.
