Has anyone had the steering wheel lock up completely while driving on model 3? I have a brand NEW Tesla as of Nov 21st and I have had the steering wheel lock down on me not once, but twice! The first time it happened the car had to be towed away and was in service for 2 weeks. They replaced the steering wheel, said it was a hardware problem and it was "fixed." 10 days later after getting it back, the SAME PROBLEM happened, again while driving on a street! But this time, multiple alerts flashed, including "ABS disabled", "Steering assist reduced", "Automatic Emergency Braking is disabled", "Regenerative braking disabled". The car is in service again and I am waiting for the diagnostics.
I have ONLY 360 miles on it; the car is but a month plus few days old, and I feel completely frustrated. I am also scared to drive it, even if they say they have "fixed it"!!!
