I recently bought a pre-owned 2013 MS60. It came with about 64K miles on it.
Recently, my passenger side front door will open itself when the car is placed in park. It doesn't open far, perhaps an inch or so. It's more of annoyance than anything else. I read the forums pretty extensively about the issue, and it seems there was a faulty handle on some of the '13 MS. So, I called up my local service center to set up an appointment to have it fixed.
I knew my warranty had expired, but based on the forums I read, this was more of a Tesla malfunction than customer. So, I was surprised to hear that the handle would cost me $963 to repair. Am I being a selfish brat thinking Tesla should fix it for free since it is apparently a manufacturing issue? They offered me free labor, but I still took the car home to think about it. I love Tesla, and that will never change, I just hate to spend nearly $1,000 on a door handle issue that's an annoyance more than anything else.
Just curious to get anyone's thoughts on it. Thanks in advance.
