Although the Cybertruck was once touted as bulletproof, it appears that the new angular truck Tesla recently introduced isn't so resistant, at least when it comes to, say, bird droppings or beetle corpses. One of the first Cybertruck owners drew attention to the fact that based on Tesla's warning, serious emphasis should be placed on cleaning the Cybertruck.
In this regard, Tesla says in the manual that various dirt must be removed from the car immediately, he noted Engine biscuits. This is necessary because the corrosion of the body has not yet fulfilled the hopes placed on it; External agents such as grease, oil, bird droppings, resin, dead insects, tar and road salt can make them particularly vulnerable. The company also points out that it's okay if owners keep denatured alcohol with them at all times.
From the above, the newspaper concluded that protecting Cybertruck from corrosion is equivalent to a full-time job.
In addition, Tesla refers to the “natural process” as external factors can cause slight changes in the body over time, even if it is made of stainless steel and is – following the instructions – cleaned on a daily basis.
The exterior of the Cybertruck will corrode and Tesla readily admits this in the manual. That's what I've been saying all along. Once this oxide barrier is breached, corrosion begins.

It's not even been two months, but all signs point to the Cybertruck opening another chapter in Tesla's history of scandals. Although it has not yet been revealed whether the new model is scheduled to be marketed outside the United States, its expansion may be hampered by the fact that since it is very heavy and its protection against pedestrians is not convincing, it is possible that it will be introduced. It has not obtained European approval.
At the same time, Tesla is trying to remove more and more skin from the Cybertruck: recently, the training hammer has taken on an angular shape.
