The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has now reportedly issued a recall for all 3,878 Tesla Cybertruck vehicles sold due to many complaints from owners over a “trapped accelerator pedal.”

According to the NHTSA site, the recall has the potential to impact all Cybertrucks. The reason behind the recall is that a stuck accelerator pedal might lead to unintended acceleration, thereby raising the likelihood of a collision.

Weeks ago, Cybertruck owners began expressing their complaints, which were subsequently shared on social media.

The video, along with similar ones, as well as other complaints lodged by Cybertruck owners, resulted in a cessation of the distribution of additional Cybertrucks.

Tesla acknowledged the issue to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as reported by TechCrunch.

Tesla has announced that it will replace or modify the accelerator pedal on all current Cybertruck models.

Tesla informed the NHTSA that it has commenced the production of Cybertrucks equipped with a redesigned accelerator pedal.

Additionally, the company is addressing any issues with vehicles currently in transit or awaiting delivery at their facilities.

Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla, has not yet made any posts on Twitter or other social media platforms regarding the recall.

However, he did make a statement on Wednesday addressing the delay in delivery.
