Tesla has announced two separate recalls affecting the 2024 Cybertruck, involving over 23,000 vehicles in total.

First Recall: Windshield Wiper Motor Controller Defect

Tesla is recalling 11,688 Cybertruck vehicles manufactured between November 13, 2023, and June 6, 2024, due to a defect in the windshield wiper motor controller. The defect, identified as electrical overstress to the gate driver component, can cause the wiper motor to fail, potentially reducing visibility and increasing the risk of a collision. Tesla will replace the defective wiper motor at no cost to the customer.

The issue was discovered in early February 2024 when Tesla Service identified early wiper motor failures. Subsequent analysis revealed damage to the PCB from excessive current during testing by a supplier. Corrective measures were implemented on May 28, 2024, to prevent further occurrences. Tesla plans to notify dealers on June 21, 2024, and owners by August 18, 2024.

Second Recall: Sail Applique Adhesion Issue

The second recall affects 11,383 Cybertruck vehicles manufactured between November 13, 2023, and May 26, 2024. This recall addresses a problem with the cosmetic sail applique on the exterior of the truck bed trim, which may not have been installed according to specifications. The applique could become loose or detach, posing a hazard to other road users.

The issue was first noted on December 28, 2023, when a vehicle arrived at a delivery center missing a sail applique. Further investigations and field surveys revealed additional instances of improper installation. Tesla will replace or rework the applique to ensure proper adhesion at no charge to the customer. Notifications to dealers and owners are scheduled similarly to the first recall.

Tesla has stated that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to either defect. Both recalls are part of Tesla’s ongoing commitment to safety and product quality.
