Used Tesla Components Contain Personal Information
Used Tesla components, sold on eBay, still contain personal information, even after a factory reset.
This is a decades-old problem. It's a problem with used hard drives. It's a problem with used photocopiers and printers. It will be a problem with IoT devices. It'll be a problem with everything, until we decide that data deletion is a priority.
EDITED TO ADD (6/20): These computes were not factory reset. Apparently, he data was intentionally left on the computer so that the technicians could transfer it when upgrading the computer. It's still bad, but a factory reset does work.
