Tesla calls claims of unintended acceleration in NHTSA petition ’false’

Tesla pushed back Monday against claims that its electric vehicles may suddenly accelerate on their own. The accusation was made known last week when it emerged that more than 100 Tesla owners had signed a petition citing the issue as the cause of 110 crashes and 52 injuries. The petition urged NHTSA to recall all Tesla vehicles, the Model S, Model X, and Model 3, produced beginning in 2013.

I always find it interesting the the phantom accelerating seems to happen in places where you’d go to push the break. Like a carpark for example. Seems way to easy for someone with a new car to miss the break, hit the accelerator, and with the torque of a Tesla, suddenly fly into a wall. There are multiple redundancies and record to make sure this doesn’t happen. Not saying it couldn’t. But I’ll be really surprised if they find anything.

Just like Seatbelts couldn't possibly help save lives. They will cover up facts and do as little as possible while he profits and his car company is worth more than GM and Ford combined. Elon says you are lying. Don't question Elon. He thinks he is god. Who are you to question a god. That's what happens when you put power in the hands of those with money, and worship money, they become your gods.

So it's not the case that the vehicles don't accelerate with they are not supposed too?
