Talk about a tricky Tesla!

Earlier this week, TikTok user @zoezferg shared a post on the social media platform, in which she highlighted her struggle to open her locked Tesla door amid chilly weather.

"POV: You own a Tesla during an ice storm," the TikToker wrote alongside a video of herself attempting to open her driver's side handle, which was situated within the car door.

After using her jacket sleeve to try and access the door to no avail, the woman then used her bare fingers to try to push the door handle out, before later slamming the area with her fist.

"Who needs to get into their car anyway?" she wrote in the post's caption.

According to Tesla, the company has "best practices" to ensure that customers can access their vehicles amid wintry weather.

"When snow and ice accumulate on your vehicle, moving parts, such as the door handles, windows, mirrors, and wipers can freeze in place," Tesla says on its website.

"To achieve maximum range and performance, it is helpful to warm the cabin and Battery before you leave," the company states.

Tesla recommends that drivers utilize an option on the company's mobile app that allows them to schedule when they want their vehicle to be ready to drive.

There, they can customize the temperature to heat the car, while also warming the high-voltage battery as needed. Another option available on the app defrosts the car by helping to melt snow, ice, and frost on the windshield, windows and mirrors.
