Tesla has built a reputation for selling safe and trustworthy electric cars of the future. Now they are in the hot seat for a myriad of unintended acceleration (UA) cases.
The defect seems to occur most often when cars are parked or slowing down to park. Drivers recall a sudden jump in acceleration and the brake component failing to respond. Various reports of unintended acceleration have occurred in Model S and Model X cars.
Our main concern is to prevent future cases and injuries by recognizing the design flaw in Tesla’s electronic system.
Tesla hasn’t been helpful with returning the diagnostics logs of the accidents, only returning information they choose to disclose and not all of it.
If you own a Tesla, recognizing the possible dangers that many other consumers of the product have experienced is critical. The design flaw needs to be fixed for the safety of all consumers. If you have experienced a similar condition with your Tesla model, please share your thoughts!
