May 6, 2019—Tesla's EV lineup may now be able to self-identify maintenance needs and order parts to fix them, reported The Drive.

One Reddit user posted a photo, apparently taken from the infotainment screen of a Model 3, that shows a notification of a problem with the car's power conversion system. The car has not only self-diagnosed this problem but has also ordered replacement parts for installation at a Tesla service center.

Tesla owners report turnaround times as long as six weeks to have simple body repairs done to cars such as the Model 3, especially in areas like New York City, where there is just one Tesla authorized body shop.
