Tesla is continuously enhancing its cars with innovative features through free over-the-air (OTA) software updates. In their upcoming 2023.20 software update, currently undergoing internal testing, Tesla is introducing a new feature called ‘Tire Service Mileage.' This feature, located in the ‘Controls' menu, enables drivers to easily track the number of miles driven since their last tire service.
According to leaked release notes obtained by Not A Tesla App, the purpose of this feature is to assist users in monitoring when their tires were last rotated, replaced, or swapped. By keeping tabs on tire service history, drivers can conveniently schedule their next tire service. To reset the mileage counter after each tire service, users can simply utilize the ‘Reset' button in the settings.
It's important to note that Tire Service Mileage is not the sole mileage tracker available to Tesla owners. The company already provides multiple trip counters that can be customized for various purposes. One popular use of these trip counters is to monitor the mileage on winter and summer tires.
The introduction of this new feature could potentially replace the need for a separate trip counter, allowing owners to allocate it for other tracking purposes. However, it remains unclear whether this new counter will be included as an option in the quick access menu on the main screen.
As Tesla recently released version 2023.12 to their vehicle fleet, it is expected to take several weeks before the deployment of version 2023.20. The timeline for its release, tentatively set for mid-June, depends on the completion of internal testing and the discovery of any significant bugs.
