Tesla halts Cybertruck deliveries following customer concerns about potentially fatal flaw in accelerator pedal
04/19/2024 // Laura Harris // Views

Tesla has reportedly stopped all Cybertruck deliveries following customer complaints about a potentially fatal flaw in its accelerator pedal.

In the past few weeks, many Cybertruck owners have claimed that they are experiencing serious malfunctions with their new electric pickup trucks immediately after purchasing them. Several users on the Cybertruck Owners Club forum as well as social media platforms like TikTok and X have also posted videos showing the cover for the accelerator pedal had dislodged in such a way that it kept pressing on the pedal, causing the vehicle to accelerate uncontrollably unless the driver held on to the brake pedal.

"The cover may separate and get stuck behind the trim, which could potentially lead to several accidents," an X user posted along with a TikTok video showing that the pedal’s cover had come apart. "This is a prime example of cheap engineering and the cost of going too cheap and too simple … something @Tesla is known for."

Another owner also described his harrowing experience with his newly delivered Cybertruck in a thread titled "Worst delivery in my life (truck died in five minutes)." The owner claimed that the newly delivered Cybertruck malfunctioned shortly after hitting one mile, started getting a steering error, flashed a red screen and pulled off to the side of the highway before it turned dead.

"Dealer couldn't do anything for me. It was great for five minutes. [I] tried everything, restarting, [but the] screen is stuck black and keeps beeping," the user wrote in the thread.

These reports of similar incidents have continued to pile up on different online platforms, so Tesla and its car dealers had no choice but to message their customers that their delivery appointments had been canceled until after April 20 due to "unexpected delays."

"We are not confident this will be resolved [in] the next few weeks," stated Dan Ives, a managing director at Wedbush Securities in New York.

Tesla Cybertruck issues have been piling up

Aside from the reported incidents, the long-delayed Cybertruck launch has also faced other problems like software glitches, rust, brake failures, easily soiled exteriors, panel misalignment and monumental Basecamp tent failures.

The initial batch of Basecamp tents, advertised as luxury camping solutions with seamless attachment to the Cybertruck's rear, was compared to "unpolished homeless encampments" and labeled as a "monumental failure." Despite promises of an "ultra-soft mattress" and an "enhanced camping experience," these offerings have failed to meet expectations.

In another failure, a Tesla Cybertruck at the Corral Hollow OHV (off-highway vehicle) Trail in Bear Valley, California, was stranded due to software glitches that affected traction control and its ability to deflate its tires properly. The people recovering the truck noticed that it didn't have proper tow points, so they had to attach ropes to its suspension for the recovery.

Meanwhile, other Cybertruck owners in California have reported seeing "orangish tints and spots" indicative of rust appearing on their trucks following exposure to rain. The issue has become a point of contention, especially given the company's apparent false advertising of the car's "ultra-hard stainless-steel exoskeleton" on its website, which claims to reduce dents, damage and long-term corrosion.

Another video that went viral in December showed how a Tesla Cybertruck experienced brake failure. The Cybertruck, loaded with a Christmas tree, struggled on the snowy off-road hill in California's Stanislaus National Forest.

In conclusion, Ives stated: "This is another black eye for [Elon] Musk and Tesla and adds to the horror show year so far as this company is navigating a Category 5 demand storm. We believe Musk is facing a fork in the road moment to turn this growth story around otherwise darker days will be ahead."
