Like a scene from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, only not funny.

That shut gap on the left between the bumper and rear fender - is it supposed to be that bad or has this driver had a shunt in it already? Judging by that piece of driving I’d think the latter!

The story seems a bit confused. There are potential rust marks. so that's one problem.
While other owners seem surprised that stainless steel can actually be stained by life's muck. Which sounds like they don't understand what the word stainless means in that context.
I ought to be surprised by the latter, but I'm not.

I think it's fair to say that Cybertruck stories - particularly negative ones - are good for generating website traffic. From reading Jalopnik they seem to be milking it anyway.

For example, remember one of the very first videos that showed the Cybertruck absolutely hammering a Ford F150 (?) in a tug of war?

Turns out the reality might not be quite so impressive. Somebody tried recreating it against a diesel Silverado truck and every time they started, the Cybertruck immediately turned itself off. hehe

And there's the $3k tent which, um, does not much look like the pictures they sold it on. How they can get away with this is remarkable really.

It is still an impressive vehicle in many ways and I quite admire them for making something looks so mental, but it's hard to dispute that they massively overpromised and underdelivered what it can do.

There's a secret panel with two cords to pull in the back in case you accidently lock yourself in the load bay - https://www.youtube.com/shorts/y83vKC3Rt8Q

I guess they studied the type of buyer before including that feature. Kidnap/murder/rapists and the stupid.

It's standard on "trunks" in America for decades.

Saw CT in the flesh today and surprisingly liked it. It made me smile for reasons unknown. You’d struggle in UK car parks though, a big old machine.

Random one - Hiro Nori Craft Ramen is amazing Ramen. Probably the best I have ever had and reasonably priced too,

I also saw a CT in SoCal - it had a MASSIVE crowd round it at South OC Cars and Coffee. It is rough around the edges for sure and I massively doubt they will sell as many as they predicted, but it does have some cool things about it. It is a statement I wouldn't be happy making myself, but some people will love it. I doubt it will ever be officially available here.

Hoovie was moaning that his two orders have never materialised.

Something about them only shipping to California and New York.

Watched a few videos of those companies that specialise in reverse engineering products. They generally seemed quite impressed with it.

Apparently there's a recall on those wheel covers because they're eating the tyres. I struggle to believe that wouldn't have been immediately obvious if they'd actually tested it.

At 175mm wider (with mirrors) than a Murcielago, I think it’s safe to say it isn’t coming to the UK smile Including mirrors, it is only 85mm less wide than the maximum allowable width of an HGV trailer…

It seems they've also stopped selling them because the accelerator pedal covers are sliding off and getting trapped under the footwell trim, causing the bloody things to keep accelerating.

I wish them well dealing with that particular issue. The NHTSA has a long history of going after manufacturers hard for this.

I leave it to the reader to contemplate why it seems that the US seems to struggle so much more with this kind of problem than the rest of the world...
