"Good afternoon! Quick update - We are still waiting on the parts for the Cybertrucks. They have not arrived at our location yet."

This was the text from the service center. No response back yet asking if there was a chance we were still ok for 11 am delivery tomorrow. Really wanted the reversible delivery date!

I would call them! They apparently have 40 to get out the door.
Yeah, I called the listed number, but I think it just routes to a central call line. They were nice enough to look it up and tell me that it arrived yesterday (San Antonio) and they are preparing it now. Fingers crossed to pick it up tomorrow. VIN 61XX, Got VIN 4 April

Update.

"Good afternoon, we will not be able to move forward this weekend with your appointment. Once we have an update for you we will reach out to you to let you know."

Sounds like most of you should really feel lucky that your SC are giving you info. My SC does not. They wont tell me anything. I didnt have a delivery date but I was given an ETA of 04/17. Since then...radio silence.

Local service center in Kennesaw just said they hadn't gotten parts in a unprompted message. No response back if any chance we are still ok for pickup.

Don't get your hopes up.
Good luck on a quick delivery next week!

Nothing for me yet in San Diego county. How do you guys reach out to your service center exactly? I have always had to show up in person.
I called bright and early this morning after I saw the "recall notice" and knew it would probably be ready next week. As luck would have it, my CyberTruck was already repaired, inspected, and ready for detail work.

I hit up the delivery team by app, and their response was "We should have an update in the coming days".

Not vague at all! All I can do is laugh... and wait.

So, galleries were where they just show you things, but you have to go online and order.

Delivery Centers do deliveries. Some of them even have stock!

As you said, some state laws limit this - and Tesla does mix and match. Like, the gallery where I saw my first Model S in Beaverton, OR is now a delivery center as well. And lots os service centers are also delivery centers. But the old dealerships they bought in the Bay Area are all delivery centers, though they were originally also sevice centers, they moved that stuff to cheaper industrial space.

So yeah, it gets complex. The same laws that make Tesla jump through hoops makes the other companies jump through hoops - but the biggest impediment to them selling direct is their contractual obligations.

I live out here in the West where we don't have protectionist laws requiring dealerships. Heck, we even let you send alcohol in the mail and use THC.

Out here, there's no difference between a dealership and a Tesla store.

Except that you can't transact business with the store. They don't have anything to sale.

You don't order from a store, but you can order in store.
You order in and from a dealership.

And yes, there are a number of multi-function facilities.

Google "tesla dealership" and look at the first result.

And what association with reality do you think that is?
You do know that Google results are based on what YOU have been looking at?
And that it people are searching for Tesla Dealerships, then Google associates the words and uses the association for future searches?
BUT, search nominally takes your first word as the primary search term. There indeed happened to be an exact match.

Just a quick more specified search
Here Is Why Tesla Has No Dealerships (hotcars.com)

There has been a big debate on how Tesla is not playing by the rules and selling their cars directly to customers without going through a dealership. The fact is, you can’t just buy a car straight from a manufacturer because of federal laws in compliance with the franchise law. This is what the traditional way of buying a car has been for the past 60 years or more, but that is changing with Tesla.

Choosing to have no dealerships around the country but rather just galleries that do not intend to sell you a Tesla but rather talk to you about the benefits of owning a Tesla or any other electric vehicle, Tesla seems to be putting the old-fashioned dealership style out of the contest.

I just asked ChatGPT. It’s been pretty accurate so far.
