Consumer Reports offers verdict on Tesla Plaid’s steering yoke

We’ve heard it over and over again, gambling is a joke! However, others really like the Tesla Model S Plaid’s steering yoke. As we have said in the past, it is our opinion that gambling should be optional. While the Nürburgring record was recently set with it, we have seen other plaid race participants swap it out for a few more rounds.

Editor’s Update: Consumer Reports published a related video. We have embedded it above.

At any rate, we can honestly say we didn’t even need to start reading consumer Reports’ A recent article to believe what the publication thinks about the steering yoke of the plaid. However, we definitely read the article, and it’s worth sharing.

Essentially, CR says the steering “offers little advantage,” and has “potential safety disadvantages.” While we’ve been hot and cold about CR’s Tesla coverage for years (the publication actually taught people to dodge Tesla Autopilot), we’re certain there are people out there who agree about CR’s gambling. In fact, we’ve seen similar takes all over the internet, some from huge Tesla fans and owners. Let’s dive

To get you in the right thinking, the Consumer Reports article begins with this paragraph:

“My hands hurt. It’s no surprise—they usually hurt at the end of the day, thanks to unfortunate genetics and years of writing to survive. But as I type this, Unusual source adds pain: a few hours spent behind the brand new Tesla Model S’s new steering “yoke” we just bought for testing.”

CR also embedded this tweet and Elon Musk’s reply. For background, the question comes from an ardent Tesla supporter, who may or may not be a fan of the yoke:

We haven’t driven a car with a gamble, but we can imagine it will be quite the odd one out, at least at first. If you’ve spent years driving with a normal wheel that basically every driver has, something new and different is going to thrill you. I recently had to get a new mouse and keyboard for my computer, and let me tell you, I’m ready to stop them.

With that said, most people will get used to it, and many Model S drivers have already admitted that they have. However, CR has a lot to share, the good and the bad. The publication let 10 test drivers experience the steering yoke over the course of a week.

Consumer Reports and its test drivers agree with Musk, the yoke makes it easy to see performance. However, some turns are difficult to make, hand-over-hand turns aren’t really possible, it often slips out of the driver’s hands, it’s too rough for little hands, you can’t really hold it lightly may or may not let it go. Slip out of your hands, there are problems with the turn signal, if you lose your grip, it is difficult to “hold” the yoke, and the list goes on.
