Tesla’s Cybertruck, known for its polarizing design, is facing significant issues that necessitate dual recalls. One pertains to a faulty windshield wiper motor affecting 11,688 trucks produced from November 2023 to June. Owners are required to visit dealerships for motor replacement due to potential current overload.

Concurrently, Tesla is recalling 11,383 Cybertrucks built between November and May due to an adhesive-related problem with bed trim applique. Dealers will inspect and decide whether to replace or reapply the adhesive on a case-by-case basis.

The wiper motor issue first surfaced in December, with quality inspections later uncovering more cases by May. This follows an earlier report this month of Tesla pausing Cybertruck production due to these concerns, leaving owners like Cnod stranded during rainstorms, waiting hours for assistance.

“This isn’t the Cybertruck’s first recall for safety concerns,” remarked Cnod, recounting a harrowing experience and temporary fix with Rainx. In April, nearly 4,000 Cybertrucks were recalled due to an accelerator pedal jamming risk.
