I bought a £140k top-of-the-range Tesla and the quality is awful – what’s going on with your cars Elon? | The Sun

A MAN who bought one of the most expensive Tesla’s currently on sale has slammed the quality of the luxury motor, and warned others against buying a similar electric car.

The EV driver bought a ‘fully-loaded’ Model S Plaid which set him back an eye-watering £140k.

TikToker @stathios uploaded his video to show viewers the problems he’d experienced with his flash new electric car.

He starts the video by saying: “2022 Tesla Model S Plaid, fully loaded, and this is why it SUCKS.”

@stahios then explained how he’d just had the car delivered, and found that the door doesn’t even close properly, while a walkround the car showed off the irregular panel gaps in the car’s bodywork.

The poster then asks: “What’s going on with your cars Elon, how are you selling people this for this much money?”

I spent £50k on a Tesla and I hate it – here’s why

Showing footage of him pushing and pulling at the Tesla's interior trim, the TikToker continues: “I mean this thing is flimsy, it looks like it’s held together by duct tape. Everything is just so Fisher-Price.

“If you want to pretend like you’re saving the planet, buy an Audi e-tron GT.”

The video has had almost 200k views, and people were quick to comment.

One said: “A self driving Tesla could run over an Elon fan and they’d still defend the car/him.”

While a further viewer commented: “They’re a great battery company with zero clue or interest in improving build quality.”
