I was driving my Tesla S this evening and was stuck by a metal debri on the highway and hit the bottom of my car.
Where as other cars in front of me drove over it with no issues.
Immediately i got my car to complete stop on the side of the highway to make sure everything is ok.
Then i drove to near by tesla service centre to get it checked under the car and make sure nothing major happened.
The technician informed me that battery might have been punctured and needs to be replaced.
He also said that i was lucky as it could have been worse and could have caught fire.
I wonder how come Tesla did not take care of this practical problem in the design.
I bought tesla in Feb 2018 and now i am asked to pay for the battery replacement as it happened due to outside influence.
Tesla service centre even denied to give a loaner car.
I am really upset with the whole thing...
