“Can we get a drive thru mode please? It beeps like crazy every time I’m trying to get my chicken sandwich (; thank you,” the customer wrote in a Twitter post recently.

Soon, Musk replied: “Looking into it.”

“This prompted me to look at the ‘upgrades’ section of the mobile app. Interestingly, the app said I had purchased all the eligible upgrades. Odd, I have not purchased anything. So, I proceed to click on ‘purchases’ within the mobile app only to see two invoices. One for the new performance boost and the other for FSD,” the report quoted Jon.

Additionally, he mentioned that his credit card was charged $9,700 on January 5 without his authorization.
