As usual, Houndstooth_Belle shared images and information on her grandfather’s Model S Plaid to ask Elon Musk and Tesla for assistance. We have not seen or either interact with her, even after she said he had already spent three weeks trying to solve the problem. Unfortunately, she did not state when this happened, where, or who took the pictures she shared. According to the Twitter user, her grandfather has been “treated without an ounce of respect.” He had had his Model S Plaid for about 13 months and had driven it only 9,000 miles.
When asked if the 12th or 13th DU replacement was still under warranty, Von Gemmingen said that this was the last one he’ll get in that condition. That means he will soon have to pay for the replacements he will undoubtedly need, which explains why he has ordered a Lucid Air recently. We just wonder about the fate of his Model S P85.
We suspect Von Gemmingen will keep it as a trophy but will give up driving it. The only remarkable landmarks it could obtain from now on would be 2 million kilometers and 2 million miles. He will probably pursue new numbers with his Lucid Air as soon as he gets delivery. Hopefully, Lucid will have a closer relationship with this natural brand ambassador and listen to his improvement suggestions. Tesla didn’t, which likely led to the unfortunate episode with the Model S Plaid owned by Houndstooth_Belle’s grandfather.
He is STILL dealing with @Tesla 3 weeks later and treated without an ounce of respect.— Houndstooth_Belle (@Bama_Sass) August 27, 2022
