D​ominic Preuss, Google’s Director of Product Management, made his feelings very clear on Twitter after he was faced with a $14,186.25 bill as someone borrowing the car had accidentally signed up for Tesla’s advanced driver aids.

According to Preuss, the car didn’t require a password or any form of verification to carry out the transactions. Fortunately, Preuss managed to get a full refund by cancelling the purchase within the “manage upgrades” menu.

Many other Tesla owners have accidentally purchased upgrades for their cars in the past. This is not entirely surprising given how easy it is to make a purchase from the car. Because of this, Tesla owners across the globe are demanding for there to be some form of transaction confirmation to prevent accidental purchases.

  • I love how these Tesla owners walk back all of their negative comments. It’s like they fear they will be canceled or something.

  • Tesla our undoubtedly the worst and most malicious company out there and make some of the most dislikeable cars too. If there was one brand I could wipe from existence my choice is obvious.

  • Not even close to the truth. Go to the twitter thread and read all the retractions from the original source. Just because something feels true, doesnt make it so. Check your sources.
