Brand new Cybertruck owner left fuming when his $82,000 EV breaks down with ... trends now

Elon Musk has touted the Cybertruck as 'apocalypse-proof,' but a customer found his newly purchased vehicle could not even make it a mile away from the dealership.

Entrepreneur Thomas Remo shared a video of him picking up the $82,000 EV in Irvine, California, later finding it 'broke not even six inches off the lot'  and failed another '30 times' after on the first day.

Moments after Remo excitedly steps on the gas peddle, the center screen started flashing red and beeping to alert him about a critical steering issue.

The vehicle automatically slowed down to about four miles per hour, forcing him to pull over and return to the dealer.  

Remo questioned if the Cybertruck was 'Tesla's biggest lemon yet,' but his disappoint follows outrage from customers who spent $3,000 on the attachable tent and found it looked nothing like Musk had advertised.

Musk began delivering Cybertrucks last November, but it seems those living in on the West Coast have the pick of the litter - most of the sightings of the vehicles stem from that part of the US.

Remo, who runs "GearDown on YouTube, took viewers on the journey with him to pick up his new Tesla Cyberbeast.

He hit the accelerator leaving the dealership parking lot, revving the Dual Motor that generates 600 horsepower and all seemed well until a few seconds later the center dashboard turned into a blaring alarm.

Remo jokingly said 'I literally broke it right out the gate. Elon, what are you doing bro? How is it already broken?'

The flashing lights indicated there was an issuer with the vehicle's steer-by-wire system, which forced the Cybertruck into a limp mode and stopped it from exceeding four miles per hour.

Another California owner also had to have their Cybertruck towed after the center screen started flashing red and showing a steering error alert - and it happened on the same day he took the delivery

Steer-by-wire is an advanced system that aims to replace traditional steering.

The new technology eliminates the physical connection between the steering wheel and the wheels of a car by using electrically controlled motors to change the direction of the wheels and to provide feedback to the driver.
