My 2013 Model S with 92K miles went into the Sunnyvale Service Center for regular service, cabin filter and such.. I am the original owner.
Just the night before i took the car for service i got a warning/alert that said that the car was unable to charge properly
Tesla got back to me today saying that i need a HV battery pack.
Since my car is now nearly 7 years old, i am not sure what should my expectation be regarding the battery pack. Should i expect a new one or a refurbished battery that matches my current battery state. Tesla's warranty states that they are only liable up to the current performance of the battery before the alert.
My service advisor is saying that Tesla has been replacing the 85 packs with refurbished 85 packs. I did not realize that they could still get 85 packs built.
What has Tesla been doing recently in similar situations? Any information would be useful.
