Tesla is recalling nearly 12,000 of its 2024 model year Cybertrucks due to two separate issues, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The Problems:

  • Faulty Wiper Motor Controller: Excessive electrical current can cause the front windshield wiper motor controller to fail. Inoperable wipers significantly reduce visibility during rain or snow, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Loose Trunk Trim: The trim in the truck bed may have been improperly attached and could become loose while driving. This poses a potential hazard to following vehicles if the trim falls onto the road.

Affected Vehicles:

The recall covers all Cybertrucks built between February 1st and June 6th, 2024. Tesla will notify owners by mail, and dealers will fix both issues free of charge. This includes replacing the wiper motor and applying a stronger adhesive to the trunk trim, or replacing the trim entirely if it's missing.

What Tesla Owners Should Do:

  • Tesla will be contacting owners directly, but owners can also check the NHTSA website's recall database to see if their vehicle is affected: NHTSA Vehicle Safety Recall Database
  • Once confirmed, schedule an appointment with a Tesla service center to get the repairs completed free of charge.

Cybertruck's Rocky Road:

This recall is another setback for the highly anticipated Cybertruck, which has faced production delays since its unveiling in 2019.
