My Tesla Y is in the shop for some body work. It has been there for three weeks, and I am told that it could be several more weeks efore the necessary parts are available from Tesla. If I had a Ford, BMW, Kia or almost any other car, I would be in and out in a week or two. For a company as advanced as Tesla, I would expect better. It is very frustrating to be without my car for several weeks or even months for the lack of factory parts.

Absolutely. This happens a lot. The reason isn't completely clear, but it can be speculated that Tesla prefers to use the parts to sell more cars. Hopefully this is improved as other factories come online and some existing factories ramp up further.

I touch base with the repair shop weekly. He reports that he has over a dozen Teslas waiting for parts, and cannot get an eta for parts as simple as hoods or bumpers. These things are stamped out, not hand tooled. Its hard to believe that I will have to wait for new production facilies to start up before this bottleneck is cleared. And, can you imagine me, or anyone else waiting for a repair, giving a glowing recommendation?
