Tedious repairs did a great job on my vehicle. They made the repairs but also made recommendations for other things they saw that needed to be done. The staff was friendly and professional. I would recommend them to anyone.

I love tedious repairs, he did everything I wanted done to my Audi as soon as the parts came in! Also more recently helped get an estimate on another vehicle I own, going out of his way to make sure I was informed. Super nice, excellent service, straight forward and fair priced

Came in for a cheap oil change. They found that the brake pads on my car were low and got them repaired in the same day! Great service and friendly office lady!

not only did Tedious Repairs complete the job I had my Golf in for, but in addition he added a few repairs for a very reasonable price, (after confirming with me that it was O.K.) such as repairing a tire that had a nail in it; I will return to this business in the future for my auto's needs

Buddy and his team of well qualified technicians always do a great job. I’ve taken my cars to them for nearly 20 years now, at least 3 different vehicles, and I cannot recommend them enough. They’re thorough, hard working and honest. Tough qualities to find in people now a days, let alone a mechanic!!!

This is the only place I take my vehicles to get worked on. Buddy and his team simply know the ins and outs of all varieties of vehicles. I have had A/C Repair, Oil Changes, Brakes, and a New Key Fob made all at Tedious Repairs. Pricing is honest and simply the best around town. You get an itemized list of all jobs that need to be done after a full diagnostic of your vehicle; and you can choose what you want done. No trickery

Highly recommend this shop! The owner is super friendly and was able to get my car in for a brake job the day that I called. It turned out to be extra work than we had initially thought and, once approved, they had no problem taking care of the extra work immediately. They also did a full car inspection with descriptions and pictures sent straight to my phone. The up front communication and honesty were both greatly appreciated. Brake price was the best that I found in town after much research. I will definitely be back for future repairs!

Tesla Auto Services

Tedious Repairs will continue to adapt and evolve to keep up with EV vehicles and the ways cars are heading. If you’re looking for a local mechanic that can work on your vehicle outside the official service center, give Tedious a jingle today! Tesla Repair is near me in Chico, California.

Transmission Service

You need transmission service every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. A transmission service is a transmission fluid exchange. We first drain your old transmission fluid and then fill your car with new, clean transmission fluid. 


Vehicle Alignment

Teslas need their alignment to be done every two to three years. Alignment makes your car’s tires aligned properly so that they hit the road at the correct angle. This makes you different, straight, and safe. 

Tesla Brake Repair

Did you know? Tesla brakes use a new special kind of electric disc brake that’s so impressive, it’s likely to become industry standard in a short time. They’re so efficient, they actually help regenerate Tesla’s electric battery. Not only is this great for increased mileage, Tesla brakes and rotors actually last quite a lot longer than standard brakes too.

Let’s delve deeper into some interesting facts about Tesla brakes, Tesla brake maintenance, and what you can do to fix your Tesla brakes when something goes wrong. If you drive a Tesla vehicle (or even if you don’t), feel free to comment at the end of the article and let us know how you feel about the revolutionary new braking system pioneered within Tesla-brand vehicles.

If one day you find yourself looking for replacement Tesla brakes, you may spin a few circles before learning that Tesla doesn’t actually make their own brakes (no one really does). Tesla brakes are manufactured by a company called Brembo, which is headquartered in the city of Bergamo in Italy. You may already know, but many of the world’s best automotive engineers live, learn, and build cars in Italy, not unlike the great Renaissance artists of old. So it’s clear why Tesla partnered with Brembo to produce highly-specialized electric brakes.


Though Tesla’s regenerative brakes are special-made, they’re still disc brakes like most cars today. They still have calipers and brake pads, but Tesla also uses heat-resistant ceramic housing that keeps brake friction from damaging the chassis of your car. Some Teslas use hydraulic actuators in their braking system, but most use electric actuators instead.

More About Tesla Brakes

The obvious and primary benefit of an electric brake system over a hydraulic brake system is that there is no brake fluid to clean, replace, or leak everywhere so the brakes can’t fail due to a fluid leak. Brake service and brake maintenance are easier because you don’t have to bleed brake lines or do any brake pressure testing during regular maintenance.

Additionally, the diagnostic data reported to Tesla’s onboard CPU is much more versatile and makes it much easier to pinpoint specific brake problems. Overall, Tesla brake service just isn’t necessary as often as it service is necessary with other brakes.

We hope that sheds a little light on how Tesla brakes differ from traditional brake systems currently in use by non-electric vehicles: not much when it comes to how the vehicle is stopped by the brakes, but more in how the braking system is administered (and the energy it recycles to the electric motor, of course).

Replacing Tesla Cabin Air Filters

Tesla cars are fascinating vehicles for many reasons, not least of which would be the electric motor and regenerative braking system. Tesla’s are considered luxurious rides as well, thanks to the numerous amenities including its notorious autonomous driving system. Another reason though is that Tesla owners enjoy a best-in-class climate control system, making every drive a breeze- or, as breezy as you want, at least.

One of the essential car parts in the heating and cooling system of your vehicle is the cabin air filter. Not only does it keep the air clean, a clean filter also preserves the lifespan and efficiency of the air system. Today we’re going to talk about Tesla air filters and what you can do to protect the quality of the air in your Tesla vehicle.

Tesla suggests replacing the Model 3 air filter at least every 2 years. However, when it comes to the maintenance schedule on air filters, it’s essentially up to you if you want to change the air filter in your Tesla sooner. That’s because you’re the one who can tell if the air is dirtier than normal, or if you need an air filter replacement because every time you turn on the A/C, the whole cabin stinks.

Besides cabin odors assaulting your senses, you may notice the sound of your HVAC or A/C system working harder than normal (a loud whirring whenever you enable the cooling or heating system). That may be due to the cabin air filter being clogged from excess debris, a clear sign that it needs to be replaced. In extreme cases, you may even see dirty air blowing into the cabin of your Tesla; this is especially noticeable under bright lights.

If the thought of dirt and other people’s skin dust blowing in your face isn’t appetizing, you may want to consider replacing your Tesla air filter at your own discretion.
