Got a push alert about this not long ago from the CNBC app.

My wife’s Model 3 needed one of the taillights replaced. Tesla had ordered the part.
Today, they got it in and asked if I wanted to bring it in.
Without an appointment, I brought the car in. 15 minutes later I had her car back.
For the same repair on a Model X, they slot out a 3 hour block for the replacement.
Tesla did a great job simplifying both the build, and repairs. This is a big part of what Tesla wanted to do, and what will help with both production and demand on the service centers.
FWIW, my co-worker with a 3 has an intermittently working backup camera. Mobile service came out. He seemed fine with that. Later, it looked like he had a service appointment. Then he had another? This time, they had to open a ticket w/engineering. Now his 3 been in the shop for over 2 weeks.
He mentioned at the SC, every single vehicle there (for service/repairs) was an X. Haha. I wasn't surprised by that. I don't think he was either.
His 3 now been in the shop longer than he's had it. We work in software and he and had joked about him beta testing not long after he plunked down his $2500 to order.
