Do you need Tesla windshield repair to get back to your day? Tesla vehicles are renowned for their cutting-edge technology and efficiency but their advanced auto glass isn’t always talked about outside of the automotive industry. Its sophistication, high-level sensors, and safety features revolutionize the driving experience, but it also comes with unique challenges with windshield repairs.
You can take your car into an official Tesla service center, but it’s also possible to repair smaller cracks and chips in the windshield with a more convenient mobile service. Here’s a look at what to expect from Tesla windshield repairs and how the team at Auto Glass Direct can help.
Tesla vehicles come with high-end, specialized features that include acoustic layering and UV protection. They also boast heating elements to make your ride more comfortable when snow hits the tristate area. The downsides are that the Tesla windshield repair process can take more time in comparison to the standard vehicle.
Call the team at Auto Glass Direct to ask about our mobile services. If the damage to your windshield is less than 2″, we can likely fix it with the help of a hard resin solution that fortifies and strengthens your windshield. If you have larger damage, we can discuss replacing your Tesla windshield with a manufacturer-approved glass.
Safety and Structural Integrity
Leaving a damaged windshield up to chance and not making repairs can lead to structural issues. It’s crucial to repair the glass as soon as possible before it compromises the rest of your windshield. Cracks and dings quickly splinter across the entirety of your windshield and compromise your safety. In extreme cases, it can weaken the overall structure of your windshield frame and leave you at risk if you’re ever in an accident.
There’s more going on with your windshield than meets the eye. Tesla models come with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autopilot features, which rely on a combination of cameras and sensors that are integrated directly into your windshield. If your windshield can’t be replaced, your Auto Glass Direct technician can replace it to ensure its functioning properly and get you safely back on the road.
Aftermarket vs. OEM Glass
Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) glass is designed specifically for Tesla vehicles. It ensures a perfect fit and helps maintain the integrity of your car. Going with an aftermarket glass can save money but it isn’t always the same quality or fit. Auto Glass Direct always works to source the best glass possible at an affordable price, but without cutting corners in the process.
In many situations, windshield repair is free with the help of your insurance. It’s also not uncommon for providers to waive the deductible altogether. However, Tesla and electric vehicles can work differently. Check your insurance policy or contact your agent to find out how they handle Tesla windshields and any differences in your coverage or deductible compared to a standard vehicle.
When paying out of pocket, the cost of repairing or replacing a Tesla windshield can be higher than that for conventional vehicles. The specialized nature of the glass and the technology integrated into the vehicle can drive up the cost of replacement.
