Tesla Cybertruck Malfunctions Following Car Wash Experience

Tesla Cybertruck owners have reported incidents of their electric pickup truck breaking down after taking it through a car wash.

Just two months after buying the $80,000 Cybertruck, and with less than 3,400 miles (5,500km) on the clock, one owner said the vehicle stopped working after washing off some sand following a trip to the beach.

Commentors described it as a “tin can” a “lemon”, and a “paperweight”, while joking that it may be bulletproof, but it does not appear to be waterproof.

The broken down Cybertruck eventually started working again after a five-hour computer reset triggered by pushing two buttons on the steering wheel.
