Model S Long Range owner criticizes Tesla in Tik Tok video for loose airbag in yoke
Elon Musk: “Looking at the airbag logs now – very low usage rate.
Will be removed from all future models. “pic.twitter.com/5ITZK6nsie

Fortunately, the Tik Tok videos are accompanied by a signature which allowed us to discover that the car belongs to Ricco Kimbrough. Identifying himself as a public teacher there, Kimbrough made more than one video on his Model S. In fact, he made 31 delivery videos of his car, some with his two parakeets in a clear Gucci bag.
Kimbrough’s videos tell how much he paid for his Model S ($ 89,190), how black people can buy Tesla cars too, how he prefers to have black vehicles, how only the “broke” drive gasoline cars, how Tesla’s are the cars to have right now, and how to stop Tesla from spying on customers by placing a tape on the internal camera. The purpose of this camera is to monitor whether drivers are paying attention to the road with the autopilot on.
In the very first video he said his car was in the ‘Plaid Edition’, but the pricing document he presented shows that it is actually a long range. Apparently, they also come with the yoke of leadership.
It wasn’t until his 25th car video that he discovered the airbag problem in his steering fork. He then makes three more videos complaining about the problem. In his 29th video, he walks into the Tesla service center to speak to a company representative. It appears Kimbrough is informed that Tesla will correct this where possible. Check it out below.
In his 30th video, Kimbrough checks another Model S with the steering yoke, and this unit doesn’t have an airbag issue.
In his latest video on the delivery of his car – the 31 – the public teacher warns future Tesla owners to carefully inspect their vehicles before accepting them because “they are like Legos”.
It is a good thing that this problem was not in a Plaid Model S. With its rapid acceleration (even if it is not less than 2 seconds, as Tesla claims), it is possible that the airbag cowardly be thrown from the yoke of leadership.
