Why Tesla Cybertrucks Are Unsellable: Rust, Defects, Injuries And…

Used Cybertruck prices plummet
Pours into a pile of various defects
A situation where it cannot be sold as a used vehicle

Due to shortages, the price of used Tesla Cybertrucks doubled to $250,000. As listings pile up in the used car market, the price has fallen to $140,000. Recently, controversies have been raised one after another as rust has formed on the vehicle body, the panel steps are not aligned, and there have even been cases of people being cut by sharp vehicle bodies and even sustaining injuries.

In light of situations like this, consumers increasingly consider purchasing a Cybertruck and then giving up on the idea. With production levels secured, Cybertrucks are now flooding into the used car market. Previously, Tesla implemented a resale prohibition clause to prevent vehicles from being sold at a premium. However, this measure has proven to be ineffective.

Tesla’s no-resale clause
It also affects ordinary owners

Tesla has imposed regulations to prevent the purchase of Cybertrucks for resale. The order contract stipulates that if owners sell it within a certain period after purchase, owners will be registered on Tesla’s blacklist and will be fined $50,000. Consumers who have purchased a Cybertruck need written permission from Tesla to resell it.

This measure aimed to prevent those who purchased Cybertrucks for profit from resale. Still, this regulation became a problem as it also affected general consumers who were dissatisfied with Cybertrucks and wanted to sell them. In particular, soon after the Cybertruck was delivered to customers earnestly, various problems were revealed, leading to a significant increase in owner complaints.

Injuries from Sharp Panels / Cybertruck Owners Club

Rust and level problems pouring in

One owner was seriously injured when his wrist was cut by the sharp body of the tailgate while checking the delivered Cybertruck. It is said that the Cybertruck delivered to the owner in question had a loose rubber seal along the tonneau cover, a cargo panel came off, and the tailgate was damaged and dented.

In the end, the moment the man touched the tailgate, the panel and the protruding edge cut his wrist. Like the man, many owners suffered injuries by scratching their hands or legs on the corners of the panel. Even though it was a relatively new vehicle, problems such as rust forming on the car body and wheels also occurred.

The driving range was not enough can’t sell it because of regulations

Several Tesla models, including the Cybertruck, have repeatedly faced issues with misaligned steps. Additionally, the Cybertruck’s driving range has become a problem, falling short of the advertised distance. Tesla claimed the Cybertruck could travel 512 km (318 miles), but tests revealed it only managed 409 km (254 miles) before recharging. Frustrated by these recurring issues, some owners have ultimately decided to sell their Cybertrucks.

However, the resale ban stipulated by Tesla earlier is becoming a problem. This provision was applied to regulate resellers who want to make a profit, but it also affects the sales of general consumers who feel a problem with the product and want to sell it. In particular, the value of Cybertruck is plummeting rapidly, but owners cannot sell them, raising concerns about damage. Instead, consumers were put in a position where they had to bear the costs incurred while owning a Cybertruck. Consumer dissatisfaction is increasing as they are forced to choose between paying a fine of $50,000 to sell their Cybertruck or continuing to own the vehicle.
