Tesla to recall almost 4,000 Cybertrucks due to potential accelerator pedal malfunction



Tesla recalling nearly 4,000 Cybertrucks after discovering accelerator pedal can get stuck

Tesla is recalling 3,878 of its 2024 Cybertrucks due to a potentially dangerous accelerator pedal issue. The accelerator pedal pad may become stuck, leading to unintended acceleration and an increased risk of a crash. This recall affects Cybertrucks made between November 13, 2023, and April 4, 2024.

According to a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the accelerator pedal pad may dislodge and get trapped by the interior trim, causing the problem. As of now, Tesla has not reported any collisions, injuries, or deaths related to this issue. The company has taken proactive measures to address the problem by installing a new accelerator pedal component in the vehicles currently in production.

Tesla, led by Elon Musk, has announced that it will replace or repair the accelerator pedal assembly free of charge for affected owners. Owners can contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752, and the recall number is SB-24-33-003. Notification letters will be sent to vehicle owners in June with instructions on how to proceed.

The automaker had already faced challenges in the production of the Cybertruck, with delays in delivering the first units to customers. Elon Musk acknowledged the difficulties in mass-producing the vehicle during a conference call in October. Despite these setbacks, Tesla is working swiftly to address the accelerator pedal issue and ensure the safety of its customers.
