Tesla Cybertruck Recalled Due to Stuck Accelerator Pedal

Tesla has issued a recall for nearly 4,000 of its Cybertrucks due to an issue with the accelerator pedal getting stuck when pressed. The cause of the problem, as stated by the regulator, was the use of soap as lubricant during the assembly of the pedal components. This caused a reduction in pad-to-pedal retention, leading to the accelerator pedal becoming stuck.

The recall affects all model year 2024 Cybertruck vehicles manufactured between November 13, 2023, and April 4, 2024. This means that the 3,878 pickup trucks being recalled are likely the majority, if not all, currently on U.S. roads.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stated that when excessive force is applied to the accelerator pedal pad, it can become dislodged, leading to the pedal becoming stuck in the lining. The issue was first brought to light through social media and online discussions.

Unlike previous Tesla recalls that could be fixed with software updates, this issue requires physical repairs. Owners of the affected Cybertrucks will need to respond to letters from Tesla and bring their vehicles to service centers for a free repair.

Tesla has not yet disclosed the total number of Cybertrucks produced, but has indicated that production will ramp up slowly. The company, which recently announced layoffs of about 10% of its global workforce, has not yet responded to requests for comment on the recall. It is advised for owners of the affected vehicles to follow the recall instructions promptly to ensure safety on the roads.
