When I heard this for the first time I was quite shocked, that is some major FUD. There are specific courses for trained mechanics to attend all of the courses can be undertaken in 5 days. These courses give the attendee the competency training required to work on a EV, once an attendee has undergone these courses they will have the skills needed to work on a EV safely, they can then build up knowledge about each EV. This definitely will not take 6 years! Find your local HEVRA approved garage or find a Tesla Approved Bodyshop.

Remember modifying your vehicle may invalidate part of your vehicle’s warranty.
Therefore, be careful and check with Tesla if unsure. Also any modifications will most likely need to be OK’d with your car insurance company.
