The overwhelming majority of our readers (at least the ones who responded) said that Tesla should be responsible for covering the replacement of “yellowing” displays. Here are some of your thoughts…
Greg E: I had a 2014 Cadillac ATS. The infotainment screen appeared to be cracking from the inside TWICE! Both times the dealer replaced it at no charge. If Tesla wants to compete with the “big boys”, it had better provide the same quality of service.
Bernard K: Screen replacement under warranty is definitely their responsibility. Instead of putting all those toys like farts and fireplaces on the screen, better tech support and backing up their product would be a better practice.
Ryan D: I'm a Tesla owner. Simple decision - if the screens are covered under warranty, then Tesla pays. If not, then the owner of the car.
