Spread the love

A Canadian Tesla owner, Mario Zelaya, faced a steep $26,000 bill for a new battery after being locked out of his 2013 Tesla model. Zelaya revealed a common issue with 2014 variations, where battery damage is exacerbated by vehicle fluids. Transport Canada is investigating, with a second study planned without Tesla’s knowledge.

Tesla faces recurring legal challenges, including a German court ruling highlighting safety concerns in July. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration forced Tesla to recall 578,000 cars in February 2022. Numerous complaints echo Zelaya’s dismay over battery replacement costs. A Finnish owner resorted to detonating his Tesla due to a similar predicament.

The viral TikTok video drew empathy from users sharing their Tesla problems. Skepticism towards Tesla’s control features emerged, with one user advocating for classic vehicles like a “mint 2005 Honda Civic.” Despite the outcry, Zelaya managed to sell his troublesome Tesla to a new owner with plans to revitalize it.

Zelaya bid farewell to his Tesla journey, cautioning others to steer clear. The incident underscores broader concerns about Tesla’s longevity and transparency, prompting a call for recalls and improved battery practices.
