WATCH: 1st Day Driving Tesla Truck Owner UNABLE to Stop, SLAMS into House

“T” for Tesla.

Or is it “T” for “Ticking time bomb”?

“T” for “Total destruction coming to your house, make way!”

So let me set the stage for you.

You’ve waited 5 years for your Cybertruck.

The day finally arrives.

You’ve over the moon about it!

Time to pick it up, sign papers, then take it for a quick spin.

And within 4 short hours, you return back home.

There’s only one problem…

The “gas” pedal doesn’t stop accelerating when you press the brakes as you reach your neighborhood.

What do you do, besides panic?

Slam into a house.

And if this problem does gets fixed, there’s still another problem looming.

The pedal pad.

It’s been known to slide and get itself stuck in the footwell, causing the same accelerating problem.

Of course, you could always just lean down and lift the pedal. But then you wouldn’t see the road.

And no one would be steering this Cybertruck that is speeding down the road. Recipe for disaster.

Other than that, it’s probably safe.

Additionally, Tesla customer service hotline states that the repair time to fix it will be 1 year.

Okay, so let’s just review this:

5 year wait.

4 hours owning it.

1 crash.

1 year wait to repair.

Seems like a good deal?

Yahoo News reports:

A new Tesla Cybertruck owner experienced a seemingly new issue: an unresponsive throttle. He took to Twitter to voice his concerns about the defect and the automaker’s lack of action earlier this month. Now, I should be clear, this fault is unrelated to the slippery pedal pad that would wedge itself in the footwell and pin down the throttle — in this situation, the truck’s brake didn’t disengage the accelerator, and the truck crashed into a house.

Twitter user @bfreshwa claims his stainless-steel-clad machine accelerated unexpectedly after only 4 hours total on the road. In surveillance footage, the impractical pickup darted up a hill into a neighbor’s house with the rear wheels completely locked up. The owner stated that the throttle and steering were unresponsive as he held the brake pedal to the floor, putting down a pair of 50-foot-long skid marks. The owner claimed that a Tesla representative said during a phone call:

“We have reviewed logs and due to the terrain, the accelerator may or may not disengage when the brake is depressed. As far as the back tire locking we are reviewing.”

Watch it speed off and disappear…screech…and then BAM!

Ooof, it’s painful to hear.

But this is probably the first time this has happened, right?


Same exact problem happened in April.

Elon Musk may have a lot of great ideas and accomplishments, I loved that he told off Disney’s CEO Bob Iger…

But I think his plans for the electric cars and trucks need to go back to formula.
