I think with evs most repairs can be done OTAI am not getting everyone's comfort level with these various "tire shop" alternatives. My experience is that they are ok for tires, maybe an exhaust. Do I want them trying to get behind the instrument panel for a rattle, or deal with an unforeseen electrical glitch on a new Ocean? I think not. The folks at the legacy dealerships go through exhaustive training to achieve "master mechanic" status. Why are these tire shop guys not at legacy dealers working on higher end cars already as professional backgrounds? For the volume of Ocean, how many independent shops would send their techs out of service bays for such training, if they have the underlying skill set to start? However, with Cox, don't they have relationships with actual automobile dealers? Those technicians would seem to already be more generally expert.
Agreed. It feels very unorganized for a company taking deposits on a vehicle know one has test driven and has no service contract with any third party company. These issues should have been rectified prior to the required $5000 deposits for the One edition.Hopefully they announce something soon. I feel they should get everything out in the open.just too many unanswered questions
Have you ever owned an EV? Very few repairs can be done OTA. Even if it was a computer (which it's not) hardware fails. You can't just push an update if electrical components fail/short, or brakes need to be serviced.I think with evs most repairs can be done OTA

Heck, diagnosis via OTA is rough.
