Tesla owners are notoriously hard to mess with, but Tesla is even harder to mess with. While most of Tesla's brake failures in previous years have come to an end, it appears that Tesla's electric vehicles still have a problem with "out of control."


Recently, Akm Shamsuzzaman, a driver in New York, filed a lawsuit against Tesla in New York State Superior Court,Accusing a Tesla vehicle of accelerating, causing him to crash into a parking space."At all relevant times, the design of the subject vehicle was negligent and dangerous," the lawsuit said, while adding that Tesla had a duty to exercise reasonable care in the design and construction of the vehicle.


It is understood that after the driver's first attempt to start the car failed, the car started and suddenly accelerated forward on its own on the second attempt.The plaintiffs pressed the brake pedal, but the vehicle did not stop, forcing them to crash the vehicle into an empty parking space.

In fact, sudden acceleration in Tesla vehicles may not be unique in the United States, as the National Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) received a petition to investigate 662,000 Tesla vehicles for unintended acceleration, but dismissed it in January 2021, citing "no evidence" : There is no evidence of any failure of the accelerator pedal assembly, motor control system or braking system that caused any of these incidents.

These drivers are likely to be picking up Tesla models from around 2021,It is unclear whether the new crop of Tesla models has any such problems.

It is worth noting that Tesla recently recalled 1.1 million electric cars in China, involving some imported Model S, Model X, Model 3 and domestic Model 3 and Model Y cars manufactured between January 12, 2019 and April 24, 2023. And the reason is that the braking system can go wrong.
