Regarding battery degradation: I think there should be a standard annual check-up on the battery pack by Tesla Motors engineers!

The battery pack is a substantially expensive part of the Tesla Motors EV. And many buyers are asking several questions about the battery pack.

I think that it would be good to have the engineers at the Tesla Motors Service Center do a check-up on the battery pack, just to determine if there has been a certain % of degredation of the capacity of the battery pack, or not. The results of this annual check-up will be written in a report. And after a certain number of years you will get a picture of how good this battery pack really is.

The information that will be obtained from all these annual check-ups will also be valuable for Tesla Motors. Because future battery packs will be even more reliable. Is this a good idea?

Well, I'd be astombulated if the annual check-up didn't do all that.

I believe a checkup of the battery and rebalancing of same is indeed already part of the checkup. :-)

Brian H,

Astombulated???

Well, that is good. But what is meant by "rebalancing"? Does that mean that if battery degradation is noticed/observed/signalled, that they replace the cells that are no longer good, so that the capacity of the battery is 100% again?

@ Jean Pierre Gui...

I am sorry, but I do not understand what your text has to do with this thread. I think that you are referring to Mr. Broder of The New York Times? Is that right?

Brian H, I just had my annual check up done and requested a battery diagnostic test/check-up as I experienced range loss at as early as 6000 miles. Well, I only received verbal answer that the test showed the battery is working fine. Yet when I asked for a written report my service center advisor couldn't give me one because he said there is no written report for this test. In addition to absent written battery report, some service centers provided customers with itemized inspection and correction report, all I received was a one page with brief summary, and the other 3 pages were about checking tire pressure, fixing bracket for panoramic roof (which I don't have), giving me a loaner, firmware update, and all these can basically be fitted in 1 page.
