“A pressed accelerator pedal can lead to unintended acceleration of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said.

Tesla will replace or repair the accelerator pedal free of charge, and owners will be notified in June.

Shares Fall

Dropping stock

On Friday, April 19, the company's shares fell by almost 3%. At the same time, the fall in Tesla shares lasts for five sessions. During that time, the stock lost about 14%.

According to a report from BizzyCar, the electric vehicle maker issued three recalls for about 2.4 million vehicles in the first quarter of 2024.

However, most of the problems associated with Tesla recalls are usually resolved with the help of an over-the-air software update.

The other day, the owner of a Cybertruck posted a video on TikTok showing how the metal accelerator pedal cover of the Cybertruck had partially loosened and was stuck in the floor. The driver was able to stop the car with the brakes and put it into parking.
