Tesla Recalling Nearly 4,000 Cybertrucks Over Loose Accelerator Pedal Issue

Tesla is recalling all 3,878 Cybertrucks produced to address a potential safety concern with the accelerator pedal. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that the accelerator pedal pad in these vehicles could become loose and become lodged in the interior trim, posing a risk of unintended acceleration and potentially leading to accidents.

This recall affects 3,878 Cybertrucks, which Tesla began delivering late last year after facing delays related to production challenges and battery-supply constraints. The company has pledged to replace or repair the accelerator pedal assembly free of charge for affected owners. Notifications will be sent out to owners via mail in June, according to the NHTSA.

This isn’t the first time Tesla has faced recalls; in fact, in the first quarter of 2024 alone, the company had three recalls impacting approximately 2.4 million vehicles, according to a report by BizzyCar, a recall management firm. However, Tesla often addresses issues through over-the-air software updates, mitigating the need for physical recalls.

Earlier in the year, Tesla recalled around 2.2 million vehicles in the United States due to an issue with the font size on warning lights. Additionally, U.S. safety regulators escalated their investigation into Tesla vehicles regarding potential power steering loss, elevating it to the status of an engineering analysis.
