Tesla over the past few days silently launched a number of cool features adding new capabilities to its cars that has gotten a lot of its users excited.
Tesla car owners will now be able to receive software updates more easily and also get their cars fixed if something goes wrong. The coolest feature added in the recent updates is the ability of the cars to self-diagnose themselves.
On Monday, Electrek wrote that cars can now diagnose themselves, and even pre-order parts to a Tesla Service Center if need be.
Several users noticed a new message on their Tesla’s main screen, stating that “an unexpected condition has been detected” and that a “replacement part has been pre-shipped to your preferred Tesla Service Center.” The user was prompted to use their Tesla Mobile App or Tesla account to schedule a service visit.
Tesla confirmed the new self-diagnose feature in a tweet
“Our cars can keep tabs on certain components to let you know if they need replacing and order parts ahead of your next service visit,” the company said.
Yep, our cars can keep tabs on certain components to let you know if they need replacing and order parts ahead of your next service visit. Like skipping the doctor and going right to the pharmacy. The tweet read.
The new feature is quite awesome since it allows the drivers to stay ahead of any car issues if they arise and also make it easier for one to repair it in time.
On Wednesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed another new feature for Tesla cars: A setting to receive software updates as soon as they’re available. The new setting can be found under Controls – Software – Software Update Preference – Advanced.
