Message received by a Model 3 owner about a ‘Service Request’ on the center screen of his vehicle

“An unexpected condition has been detected with the Power Conversion System on your Model 3. A replacement part has been pre-shipped to your preferred Tesla Service Center. Please use your Tesla Mobile App or your Tesla account to schedule a service visit appointment now.”

As soon as the parts are ordered, Tesla owners can set up an appointment at a service center to get their vehicles fixed.

Earlier this year, Tesla Co-founder and CEO, Ellon Musk, pledged to improve the service experience for the electric car owners, stating that “service is his number one priority”:

“I want to note that one of our major priorities this quarter is improving service operations. Really, from my standpoint, when I think about what my priorities are this quarter, it’s improving service in North America.”

In addition, Musk added that owners would be able to cancel it right away if they think it’s not necessary.

Tesla confirmed the new pre-order feature in a tweet:

Tesla replied a Twitter user regarding the new remarkable feature

Now that the car parts will be ready once the owner acknowledges an appointment, they won’t have to wait for long to have their cars serviced. The highly thoughtful proactive feature makes it possible for Tesla to minimize the time required to address the maintenance needs of each of its vehicles in North America. 

A few days ago, Ellon Musk also confirmed another new feature for Tesla cars: a setting to receive Tesla software updates immediately they're available.
