Tesla Cybertruck Recall

Tesla has announced a recall affecting 3,878 of its 2024 Cybertrucks due to a potential safety issue. The problem identified is related to the accelerator pedal, which could get stuck in a ‘pedal to the metal’ position, leading to unintended acceleration and an increased risk of accidents.

The issue stems from the accelerator pedal pad dislodging and getting trapped by the interior trim, as reported in a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The recall specifically applies to model year 2024 Cybertrucks manufactured between November 13, 2023, and April 4, 2024.

Fortunately, as of the latest update, Tesla has not received reports of any accidents, injuries, or fatalities associated with this problem. To address the issue, Cybertrucks in production have been equipped with a new accelerator pedal component by this week, according to the NHTSA.

The company, led by billionaire Elon Musk, has assured affected customers that it will replace or repair the accelerator pedal assembly free of charge. Notification letters informing vehicle owners of the recall are expected to be dispatched in June.

In November, Tesla commenced deliveries of its highly anticipated Cybertruck model to customers, albeit with a significant delay of two years from the original schedule. Musk candidly acknowledged the challenges faced in mass-producing the unique vehicle, admitting during the company’s third-quarter conference call in October that they encountered obstacles with the Cybertruck production.
