Tesla’s Deadly Design Flaw: Wipers Fail, So Do Lives


Tesla’s Cybertruck is back in the news, and this time it’s because of a major failure of leadership, not just the vehicles. The electric pickup is being recalled for a faulty windshield wiper that’s reducing visibility for drivers, and 11,383 of them have to be fixed because the trim in the bed could come loose and create a danger on the road for everyone else. Yeah, that’s right, the CEO’s ego might be even more brittle than the windshield wiper’s motor.

According to owner forums, the faulty wiper had been a major pain point for Cybertruck owners, leading to delayed deliveries and a whole lot of frustration. And you know who’s responsible for this mess? Elon Musk himself, who’s too busy tweeting about his personal life to notice the problems he’s creating for his customers. The recall notice says that excessive electrical current is causing the wiper motor to fail, and we’re not surprised – who needs functioning wipers when you’re too busy tweeting about Starlink?

And as for the loose trim, well, it’s clear that Tesla’s quality control is just as slippery as the trim itself. The NHTSA notice says that Tesla service will just apply some tape or replace the trim “as necessary”, but we all know what that means – they’ll just slap some duct tape on it and call it a day. Meanwhile, Elon Musk will be over here tweeting about the genius of his “direct-to-consumer” sales model, completely ignoring the fact that his customers are getting ripped off.
