Will You Buy An Electric Car? $20K Repair Bill Worries Consumer

via Wall Street Journal

A Scottish couple were left in unbelief when they were handed a repair bill for their Tesla in excess o $20,000.

The EV company blamed “rainwater ingress” for the destruction of the car’s battery, effectively leaving it useless.

The Tesla owners were also informed that the damage “due to water ingress” is not covered by the company’s warranty, leaving the bill in their hands. (Poll: Will You Buy An Electric Car? VOTE)

Ediburgh Live reports that Johnny Bacigalupo and Rob Hussey, Tesla owners in Edinburgh, Scotland, received a jaw-dropping £17,374 (approximately $20,698) bill for repairing their Tesla.

“I honestly can’t believe that this has happened. When I first got the call I thought we would get a bill for £500 or £1,000,” owner Johnny Bacigalupo said.

“When they said over 17 grand – it’s absolutely obscene. My heart missed a beat, honestly.”

The owners clarified that the car had never been sitting in standing water, but was simply driven in rainy conditions.

“I’ve been driving for 30 years and this is my most premium car to date and this is what it does when Edinburgh’s roads get puddles or a little wet!” Bacigalupo exclaimed. (Trending: Jimmy Kimmel Quietly Fired From Job)

After finding the EV dead and having it towed to Tesla for service, the owners received the massive bill to replace the battery, which Musk’s company was “damaged due to water ingress.”

They were informed that the battery damage caused by water was not covered under Tesla’s 8-year warranty, adding to their woes.
