Tesla Model Y Steering Wheel Falls Off While Driving, One Week After Delivery

Tesla has a not-so-great reputation when it comes to the build quality of its vehicles, with people complaining about big body panel gaps, paint errors, and plastic panels rattling inside. And although the American EV maker has made progress in this regard in the last few years, this latest reported problem, which surfaced on Twitter yesterday, paints a scary picture, especially since it’s not the first time it happened.

Twitter user @preneh24 posted that the steering wheel of his brand-new Tesla Model Y came off while driving with his family on the freeway, adding pictures and video of the dangling piece as he waited for a tow truck to show up and rescue him.
In his initial tweet, he notes that his family was excited to take delivery of the Model Y on January 24, and on January 30 the steering wheel fell off. Luckily, there weren’t any cars behind him and he was able to stop safely.

Must be foul play since there’s no recall yet.

This is odd that it’s not covered under warranty.

I guess it’s not a frequent problem enough for a recall. I’m sure Tesla will fix it under warranty but as for taking the car back, hahaha, good luck with that wishful thinking. Lol

"I would greatly appreciate refund & keep the car as we lost trust and family is not feeling safe driving it back" = did they still want to keep the car and get a refund?  Or they meant to say Tesla can take the car back but just give them a refund.

Since the price dropped about 20%, do you think they are trying to get a refund and then buy another one for the cheaper price?

In Oct/Nov my bro's old SUV broke down and they were planning to buy a Tesla but the wait list was too long and they cannot afford to not have another car. My husband referred him to someone to do a quick fix and also passed the inspection so they did not have to buy the Tesla right away. So they luck out and just bought it at the lowered price this week.

There’s a tax credit for buying a new model Y but there’s a catch. It has to be a Regular Y vs the Performance.
