I just recently joined the queue for an M3. I have seen a few MX/MSs around the area that I live in (around Syracuse, NY) but haven't had a chance to talk with an owner yet. According to tesla's website, the closest tesla service center is >230miles away (in Canada!). I'm curious as to how often it is expected to need to take an EV like the M3, to an actual tesla service center. Will most maintenance be able to be performed at traditional garage shops?
I'm trying to determine if it is realistic to have it be my main vehicle this coming year with the lack of service centers around. I can't rely on driving that far for regular maintenance... If that is the case, it may be better for me to consider an EV from another vendor (Chevrolet or Nissan) that can provide service support locally.
Thanks in advance for any useful input :)
