The incident was shocking because, in addition to the driver, the whole family was in the car. The car had come from the factory only a week before the described incident.
The driver stated that he was later billed $103.96 to repair the car, but it was reversed when the driver filed a complaint.

It was a fully electric Tesla car. A lot of technical problems have recently come up with electric cars. The most common of these is the car catching fire while charging.
The driver tried to return his Tesla, but this is no longer possible after 2020, when Tesla quietly dropped its return policy. Tesla was advised to contact the company that sold the car.
Tesla agreed to replace the entire vehicle, InsideEVs reports — but only after plenty of negotiation. In fact, Tesla's Service Center first held the owner, Prerak Patel, responsible for the near-death experience, initially charging him over $100 for a fix.
A Tesla owner was shocked when the steering wheel of his week-old Tesla Model Y fell off in his hands while driving on the highway, a terrifying incident that highlights the EV maker's infamously shoddy quality control
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.
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.
