Tesla Cybertruck Syndication: Austin American-Statesman

Tesla has issued an absolutely massive recall on its iconic Cybertrucks, recalling all 3,878 Cybertrucks that it has shipped to date as a result of a problem that can cause the accelerator pedal to get stuck, putting drivers at risk of a crash.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced the news of the absolutely massive recall on Friday morning, according to Tech Crunch.

“Reports of problems with the Cybertruck’s accelerator pedal started popping up in the last few weeks. Tesla even reportedly paused deliveries of the truck while it sorted out the issue. Musk said in a post on X that Tesla was ‘being very cautious’ and the company reported to NHTSA that it was not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the problem,” Sean O’Kane wrote for Tech Crunch this week.

Tesla has since confirmed the problem and issued a absolutely massive recall as the company tries to remedy the situation in the current models, and ensure that the problem never happens in future Cybertrucks.

“Tesla says it will replace or rework the accelerator pedal on all existing Cybertrucks. It also told NHTSA that it has started building Cybertrucks with a new accelerator pedal, and that it’s fixing the vehicles that are in transit or sitting at delivery centers,” O’Kane wrote.

It’s certainly not great news for Tesla, but it sounds like they’re going to correct the mistake.
