Elon Musk’s Tesla RECALLS more than 3,000 Cybertrucks due to potentially fatal flaw

  • Tesla has officially recalled its Cybertruck after finding a flaw with the pedal
  • More than 3,000 vehicles are under the recall that was announced Friday 

Tesla has recalled more than 3,000 Cybertrucks to fix an accelerator pedal pad that could come loose and get lodged in the interior trim.

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced Friday that the company will replace or repair the accelerator pedal assembly at no charge and owners will be notified through letters mailed to them in June.

The recall comes after a new Tesla owner shared the design flaw in a video, claiming the pedal cover slipped forward and wedged the accelerator under the interior that was held down 100 percent.

This is a developing story… More updates to come

The recall comes as hundreds of Cybertruck owners reported their delivery appointments had been canceled – and left in the dark about when shipments would restarted

NHTSA said that 3,878 Cybertrucks were affected by the recall.

Many buyers had received messages stating their deliveries had been canceled weeks before Tesla made the call to pull the EVs off the road.

Elon Musk only acknowledged in a comment on an X post from Whole Mars Catalog that incorrectly claimed ‘Cybertruck deliveries resuming,’ citing as evidence the fact that a customer had been assigned a vehicle identification number (VIN).

The billionaire stated: ‘There were no injuries or accidents because of this. We are just being very cautious.’

But it now appears that deliveries have not been resumed due to Friday’s recall. 

Tesla’s shares fell nearly three percent before the bell on Friday, adding to its five-session losing streak during which the stock lost about 14 percent.

In the first quarter of 2024 the EV maker had three recalls affecting about 2.4 million vehicles, according to a report by recall management firm BizzyCar.
