Tesla recalls Cybertrucks

All 3,878 Tesla Cybertrucks built between November 13, 2023 and April 4, 2024 have been recalled due to an issue with the accelerator getting stuck. The cause of the problem was the use of an unapproved lubricant, namely soap in the assembly process. The soap has caused a part to become susceptible to breaking and lodging in the trim, jamming the accelerator in the go position. Luckily this is a simple fix, and Tesla will replace or refurbish the accelerator pedal assembly at no charge. Cybertrucks still at the dealerships will be repaired before being sold.
