The Tesla Roadster, compared to an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) car, is much lower maintenance.

Despite having a fraction of the moving parts, and wear items common in an ICE car, there are important maintenance requirements in a Tesla Roadster. 

These are commonly addressed during an annual maintenance session at the Tesla Service Centers, or qualified independent Tesla shops like Gruber Motor Company.
