Over recent months a number of various recalls have been issued to the public regarding a wealth of different potential issues with an equally astounding amount of products. Most of these recalls have either been food or vehicle related.

That brings us to today where another recall has been issued nationwide and its recall from one of the most famous companies on the planet. That company would be Tesla and the recall is for their much talked about Cyber Truck.

Cyber Trucks Bumpy Road

In recent years the Tesla Cyber Truck was subject to great and highly talked about anticipation, while garnering its own fair amount of criticism. Most of the criticism coming from the physical shape and look of the vehicle, numerous delays pushing the release of the truck by not months but years and then a notorious fail where the 'unbreakable' window broke at demo event.

It's because of the numerous delays, internet criticism, customer anticipation and overall hype that this recall feels like a real kick in the gut. This recall also comes on the heels of another Tesla recall from February.

Cyber Truck Recall Details

According to Tesla's own press release, Tesla made this recall voluntarily for the 2024 Cyber Trucks. The reason being..."to replace or rework the accelerator pedal assembly to ensure sufficient retention force between the pad and accelerator pedal to prevent the pad from dislodging. The recall applies to all the 2024 Cyber Trucks, nearly 3,900 total according to Fox Business.

Now this is a considerable safety issue for sure. What this means is that for affected vehicles, when to much pressure is applied to the pedal, the pad can dislodge and the pedal itself can get stuck or trapped in the vehicles interior trim. This obviously could potentially cause severe safety issues, most notably risk of collision(s).

In the release, Tesla also provided a "how to" or "what to do" for drivers who do experience this issue. The directions are pretty simple and straight; hit the brake. To use Tesla's own words "...application of the brake pedal will cut drive torque, including when both brake and accelerator pedals are pressed". Furthermore, continued or prolonged use of the brake will bring the vehicle to stop as if the accelerator pedal was not even in use.
