The Tesla Cybertruck’s Second Recall Could Be Looming
When a new truck rolls out it typically has its fair share of issues. That’s why some drivers never get the first model year but some people can’t wait for the Tesla Cybertruck. As a result, they may have to deal with the Tesla Cybertruck’s second recall soon.
Does the Tesla Cybertruck have any recalls?
Yes, the Tesla Cybertruck currently faces one recall. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issues a recall for 2.2 million Tesla vehicles, including the Cybertruck. Model Y, Model 3, Model S, and Model X due to displaying the incorrect font size.
The font on the instrument panel for the brake, park, and antilock braking system (ABS) warning lights is hard to read, which may increase the risk of accidents.
Also, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Vehicle Safety Standard 105, which specifies the requirements and testing procedures for hydraulic brakes, service brakes, emergency brakes, and automatic brake adjusters.
Its purpose is to ensure safe braking performance under normal and emergency driving situations.
An over-the-air updates will be released to correct these issues and owners will be notified via mail beginning on March 30.
Now the Tesla Cybertruck could face a second recall soon due to faulty tire covers. The aero tire covers with custom Goodyear tires have a faulty design.
Part of the wheel cover extended to a rubber groove in the tire for a futuristic look and the look isn’t worth it because the edges of the cover are actually pretty sharp.
They are rubbing the tires and chewing into the sidewall, causing abnormal wear. The weight of the truck causes the tire sidewalls to bulge into the cover, making the damage worse under bumps and corners.
The tire sidewall keeps the tire’s shape and stability intact and helps provide a smooth ride. It protects from air loss and blowouts. Tire sidewall damage can increase the risk of accidents and injuries.
If you have a Cybertruck, remove the aero covers as soon as possible. Also, the trucks are currently being delivered without the aero covers and new ones are being designed.
It sounds like Tesla might be replacing the aero covers later, hopefully at no cost to owners. Hopefully, it will replace the chewed-up tires too.
