This EV owner was furious after getting stuck with a $20,000 bill after his EV wouldn’t start for one shocking reason

Oct 23, 2023

It’s almost become a daily occurrence.

An EV owner points out the growing list of problems and costs associated with owning and operating the vehicles.

Now, this EV owner says he was furious after getting stuck with a $20,000 bill after his EV wouldn’t start for one shocking reason.

The Biden administration’s continued economy-wrecking climate change agenda includes forcing all Americans into electric vehicles (EVs).

Putting the brakes on EVs

But every day, more and more problems come out about EVs.

Including that, they may not be reliable in the rain.

According to the Scottish news outlet EdinburghLive, the owner of a Tesla was forced to get repairs done to his EV battery because it was damaged by – wait for it – rain.

That’s right, according to reports, the EV was parked on a street in the Scottish capital, and while parked, the battery was made useless – by rain.

Even worse, the man had to fork over $20,000 for repairs to the rain-damaged battery.

According to the EdinburghLive report, the vehicle belongs to gay couple Johnny Bacigalupo and Rob Hussey, who live in the Edinburgh suburbs.

On October 7, the couple drove their Tesla into the city for dinner without any problems.

But upon returning to EV after dinner, they found the car wouldn’t start.

They ended up having to wait for hours for Tesla’s roadside assistance to show up and then had to watch as the EV was towed away.

Only the beginning of their EV woes

But waiting for hours only to be stranded as their Tesla was towed away was only the beginning of the trouble for the Scottish couple.

“After complaints from me, we received a call at 5:30 p.m. on the Wednesday, saying the battery was damaged due to water ingress and it was unfortunately not covered by the battery’s 8-year warranty, and so the repair would be around £17,500 [$21,351],” Bacigalupo told EdinburghLive.

“Did I wish to proceed? I was flabbergasted and couldn’t really find my words,” Bacigalupo continued.

The news report didn’t specify the make or model year of the towed-away Tesla, but a $20,000 car repair bill would leave almost any car owner, EV or not, “flabbergasted.”

And Tesla’s excuse — that the EV was disabled by a rainstorm — would have left a resident of rainy Great Britain even more upset.

“After finally getting to speak to a manager, he told me it had water in it due to the fact the weather in Scotland has been so bad,” Bacigalupo told EdinburghLive.

“That was the issue. They said it’s not necessarily my fault, but it’s not Tesla’s to pay under warranty. He reminded me there was a yellow weather warning in some parts of Scotland.”

A “yellow” weather warning issued by the United Kingdom’s national weather service covers a range of potential rainfall in local areas, from moderate to severe.

But if the vehicles won’t work in the rain, one has to wonder what good they are.

Imagine living in rainy Seattle or Florida and having to sit and wait for the rain to stop to even be able to use your EV, and only then if the battery didn’t get wet.

But these problems, and all the others, don’t matter to Biden and the Democrats, who continue their mad dash to make EVs mandatory.
