My Tesla had a couple of technical “events’ yesterday, one bad, one good.

The bad one was a sudden loss of power steering. The reason wasn’t what you’d expect, like some fluid leakage or other proletarian predicament. No, no, this is Tesla. The software needed to be fully rebooted. I can tell you, though, when it decides not to offer power steering, it was virtually impossible to turn the steering wheel. I felt like I was trying to spin the steering on the Titanic after resting on the ocean floor for the past century.
