Tesla Model Y
With the help of the police, the electric car was loaded onto a tow truck and taken to the service center.
In the US, the driver of a Tesla Model Y was left without a steering wheel while driving. At the same time, the automaker did not immediately agree to repair the breakdown at its own expense. This is reported by The Drive.
The incident happened on January 24. With the help of the police, the electric car was loaded onto a tow truck and taken to the service center.
They asked for $103.96 for the work, but the man filed a complaint, after which he was refunded.
According to him, Tesla did not give a guarantee for the repair of the steering wheel, so in the event of a repeated malfunction, the owner will have to repair his electric car himself.
It is also known that in 2020, the owner of a Tesla Model 3 had the same breakdown. And just a month after the start of operation.

@elonmusk Steering wheel fell of today! Concerned that the rest of the car will fall to bits too! Can this be looked into as to why it’s happened to a car just over 1 month old! #TeslaServiceIssues pic.twitter.com/w103imxnbA
