Since I could not get a straight answer online about the cost for the recommended 6,250 mile rotation, I did the inevitable - waited nearly an hour on hold (with two customer care reps, the first of which left me hanging while he went to find the answer but disconnected me instead.) I've read it costs nothing, or $50, or $75 or $150. So, if I had the service center in San Diego do the work it would cost $157.50 for a tire rotation and balance. The rep forgot to separate my question into 2 parts and I wasn't going to wait any longer for the tire rotation cost without the balance. I called my local auto repair/tire shop here in Ramona, CA and they will do it all for half that and will torque to specs. I purchased 4 jack pads on eBay and will take them with me. BTW, both Tesla reps suggested I try to find a local shop that will do the work. That tells me it's not a high priority for Tesla to do routine service like this, which could explain the exorbitant cost.
