2012 model s, 70k miles and no extended warranty. I recently noticed bubbles in my screen which at this time doesn't seem to affect the functionality of the screen. I've seen others have had this problem. Tesla does not want to cover this under "goodwill" and wants $1100.00 to replace
Does anyone have any idea if this will eventually cause the screen to fail? I don't want to fix it at this time but am worried the screen will stop working. Emails from tesla say they "don't know how to predict the affects of the bubbles", which I don't believe as they have changed screens for others who are under warranty. Since this isn't a "wear and tear" item, and clearly some defect in screen design. The screen is only 4 years old. I think it should be covered but tesla won't cover the cost of the screen , per my local service manager.
