Majority of repair work to be performed by Tesla at its shop rate. Parts probably have to come from the company too.

One is going to be at Tesla's mercy after warranty ends. Could be thousands of dollars to keep the car in drivable condition.

Infinity is a terrible brand. For those that think Teslas are going to be expensive to repair expect big changes on the the way as a result of the 3 and a new channel of repair and support.

Will labor and part costs come down? What about the lack of Right to Repair, how does that help people whose cars no longer have warranty and are required to have Tesla fix each and every issue that may affect driveability at a significant dollar amount?

Why does every discussion have to degrade into an OT Tesla discussion?

Re: "Infinity [sic] is a terrible brand" - this is entirely subjective. I'm glad to see them get into the EV business after years of teasing us with the LE, and then cancelling it completely.

Model S and X parts are expensive because of the way the cars are made and the low production numbers. Model 3 parts will cost much less and service is going to be open up to more independent shops as we ll as owners with more tools available for these parties. There also may be some interesting service bundles in the future with Tesla cars for insurance, etc.

It is subjective, and in terms of relative offerings look at the historic choices consumers made. Look at the history of the Infinity brand relative to other "luxury" brands like Lexus. Let's see what they offer and at what quality level and for what price. Nissan in general is really lagging in the EV dept and conversations often lead to Tesla as they prove to lead the market in many aspects. Consider how new of a company Tesla is compared to Nissan and where they are today, they are a recent car start up company. Nissan in general is still bound by a lack of progressive talent and conservative management in the EV space. The New LEAF exemplifies this in so many ways after seven years of the same model.
