Tesla does not think the Cybertruck has rust problems

A Tesla engineer is now coming forward and says that he does not think the Cybertruck is rusting. But it does, say the owners.

Yes, it works. Well, it doesn't.

This is roughly how you can summarize the discussion when it comes to whether the stainless Tesla Cybertruck rusts.

Because that's what the owners think it can do. In any case, it is clearly documented that a sea of small root-brown spots forms on the otherwise stainless steel of which the bodywork is made.

But now a Tesla engineer says that it is 'not at all' rust, but instead 'surface contamination' on the car. And this is what the owners experience as rust.

That's what Automotive News writes.

The Tesla engineer believes that it is iron particles – what the rest of us would call fly rust – and that it is in fact no problem for the car at all.

Aircraft rust is not a problem either, if you do something about it right away . Which Tesla actually also advises Cybertruck owners to do.

It is therefore not completely maintenance-free to own a stainless steel Tesla. At least not if it has to look just fairly presentable.

Several owners have complained that rust quickly appears on the car. In several forums, Cybertruck owners write back and forth that the rust is especially a problem when it rains.
