Today, I had the misfortune to get myself locked out of my own vehicle. I parked my car in the tiny spot available in front of the post office, went inside to drop the mail and quickly came back to my car and to my surprise the door handles wouldn't extend, so I could go on my way. I started scratching my head as to why this could be happening I looked through the window and saw the key taking a break in the cup holder.
This was very unusual, as the fob never leaves my pocket, but I guess I've decided to drop it in the cup holder for a change, but I started to wonder why would the car lock with the key inside?
My head was now itching from too much scratching as you would expect, trying to figure out how did that happen and just then I realized I have the Android app I could use to get myself inside the car.
And then it struck me as a new owner of a Tesla, I didn't have access to the app for nearly 2 weeks (Tesla was unaware that the car changed owners and then it took them sometime to complete the transfer of ownership), what would have I done if the app wasn't there to save me?
Have you guys experienced this and what would you do if you don't have an access to the phone app?
I was surprised that the car will lock itself with the fob inside of it, you would think that it would be smarter than that, although I'm guilty at leaving the key inside for good 2 minutes.
