I can’t stand driving my Tesla, my fingers get ‘burned’ just trying to adjust the AC

A WOMAN who drives a Tesla as her company car has listed the reasons why she absolutely hates it.

Teslas are the most popular electric vehicles on the market and many owners love them – but not everyone shares the same opinion, as this working woman revealed.

Carol (@carolgirl7) took to TikTok, where she usually shares her makeup tips and shopping trips, and took a detour to car reviews.

She was working in the summer sun when she returned to her company’s Tesla, only to find the interior and all functions scorching hot.

“I fucking hate Teslas,” she said.

“I just got in the car, my seat is at 14,000 degrees and the screen is so hot that I’m burning my fingers if I touch it.”

I'm an EV expert - Teslas are SO loud and the suspension is garbage
I still hate my Tesla after two years - the interior of the car is cheap and not made to last

She turned her attention to the sun visors, which she said were so cheap and flimsy for the price drivers pay for Teslas.

Her elbow almost burned when she rested it on the armrest, which was in the sun the entire time it was parked.

Carol also had a problem with the Tesla key card flying around if you forget to put it in the cup holder or other safe place.

She also feels that her company car is not safe.

“If someone is chasing me, I have to make sure the key card is perfectly placed on the door and then pull the door open,” she said.

“And if I want to lock the doors, there are no buttons on the door to do that. I have to go to the screen and press a button.”

The large windows were also a problem for them due to their size.

“These windows are so big that it’s so hot in here, even if you have shades or blinds,” she added. “It’s literally so hot, I hate it so much.”

Even though the air conditioning was running at the highest level, it was so hot inside the Tesla that she visibly sweated more and more as the video progressed.

She pointed the camera at the infotainment screen to show viewers that to change the direction of the airflow she had to use the screen, which burned her fingers.

“I try to blow it on myself perfectly, but it burns my fingers.”

Many Tesla owners in their comments recommended that she use the Tesla app to start her car and pre-cool the interior before entering it. However, she stated that her boss does not allow employees to use the car because it is a company car.
