One of the benefits of driving a Tesla is the comfort in knowing that the lack of an engine means fewer repairs and maintenance. However, even though your Tesla Model 3, Model S or Model X has no internal combustion engine, there are several critical components of your electric car that need regular maintenance.

Recommended Tesla service (From the Tesla Website):
Cabin Air Filter
Tesla recommends replacing your cabin air filter every 2 years.
High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filter
If your Tesla is equipped with a HEPA filter, Tesla recommends replacing it every 3 years.
Tire Rotation, Balance and Wheel Alignment
Tesla recommends checking your tires every 10,000-12,000 miles for rotating, balancing and aligning needs. Aggressive driving can lead to premature tire wear and may require more frequent tire service. Unbalanced and misaligned wheels affect handling, tire life and steering components. Refer to tire manufacturer's owner manuals and warranty documentation for additional details.
Brake Fluid Test
Tesla recommends testing brake fluid for contamination every 2 years and replacing as needed.
