A MAN who has owned a Tesla Model 3 for just two days says he already hates his EV.
The Tesla owner took to social media to explain why he regrets buying an expensive electric car from the US firm.
TikTok user @itselijones spent around £42,000 on a Tesla Model 3-which has an estimated range of around 370 miles.
But he's fuming after realising that the Tesla Autopilot function still doesn't work – a feature that enables your car to steer, accelerate and brake automatically within its lane.
According to Tesla, the calibration typically completes after driving 20-25 miles, but the distance varies depending on the road and the environmental conditions.
The new owner said: "Bro, the Autopilot still doesn't function – it's still accelerating after driving it a hundred and twenty miles and is supposed to have calibrated after twenty-five miles, but hasn't yet.

"That being said, driving without the Auto-pilot is pretty fast and fun. The second thing I hate is the charger that comes with the car.
"It charges my car super slowly. We're halfway full after twenty-two hours.
"That's because the charger they give you plugs into a standard house socket, and it's only a hundred and ten volts, but you can order the fast charger for £400.
"Also, this car is so quiet that I keep falling asleep while driving down the road."

The video has had thousands of views on TikTok – and 25,000 likes, but most users have disagreed with the comments.
One said: "It hasn’t calibrated because either a Tesla hasn’t driven your route yet or when you enable it, it resets it.
The poster answered: "Interesting! It just now finished with a short highway drive. Now to get used to the car driving for me."
Another user said: "To be honest, the price of the home charging system, if you upgrade it, is still lower than some people’s month of gas."
A third pointed out: "How fast it charges at your house is not Tesla‘s fault. It’s yours for not having the correct outlet installed."
It comes after a driver who bought a £100k Model S claimed it looked like it was built by a group of toddlers.
