Tesla has voluntarily recalled 3,878 Cybertrucks to address a "stuck pedal" issue that-

owner Jose Martinez documented in a viral TikTok video published last week.

An unapproved pad atop the accelerator lever of the Cybertruck could become entangled in the interior trim and cause unintended-

Owners will not be charged for the replacement or repair of the accelerator pedal assembly by Tesla's service department.

Tesla disclosed in a defect notice that an "unapproved change resulted in the introduction of lubricant (soap) utilized to facilitate-

the assembly of the accelerator pedal pad component." Residual lubricant decreased the pad's adhesion to the actuator.

The filing indicates that Tesla first became aware of this issue on March 31, 2024. The filing states that Tesla issued a voluntary-

recall of the Cybertrucks on April 12 following an assessment of the problem.

According to the filings, Cybertruck shipments have been minimal since CEO Elon Musk initiated-

shipments at an unveiling event on November 30, 2023, with fewer than 4,000 units dispatched.

The organization disclosed unsatisfactory vehicle deliveries for the first quarter of 2024, amounting to 386,810 automobiles.

This constituted a decline of 8.5% in comparison to the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

On Tuesday, Tesla releases its first-quarter earnings. The NHTSA was questioned by CNBC on April 14 regarding Cybertruck's-

stuck accelerator issue, following Martinez's video that brought public attention to the defect and unintended acceleration.

On Monday, an NHTSA representative stated that the agency was aware of the video and had received three vehicle owner-

complaints regarding the Cybertruck. The NHTSA noted that it "utilizes numerous data sources,

including vehicle owner and other relevant forums and social media, in its enforcement processes."
