The Car That Drove ItselfWhile some believe the Tesla to be the safest car, one owner's experience seriously questions the safety of the Tesla Model S.
The Tesla has recently been the center of attention. While claimed to be the safest car out there, one owner’s experience tells a different story.
A Tesla Model S owner recently filed a complain with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The driver claims that his car accelerated by itself, in turn climbing a curb and eventually crashing. At the time, the owner was driving at only five mph. He also claims the engineer that investigated this complaint found evidence that the car accelerated from 18 to 100 percent in just a split second. Was this occurrence truly a unique defect or is Tesla really the antithesis of the safest car?
