Tesla is under fire at the hands of some of its car users who have reported miscellaneous issues.
One of such users is Model X owner Ji Chang Son who has taken the matter to court that his electric vehicle suddenly accelerated and banged into his living room.
Tesla however has rejected any such problem. It asserts that the company’s cars
“do not accelerate without the driver instructing it to do so.”
The Model X owner has sued the Tesla Inc. that this alleged car hit has injured his passenger as well as him while he was parking the car.
“The vehicle spontaneously began to accelerate at full power, jerking forward, and crashing through the interior wall of the garage, destroying several wooden support beams in the wall and a steel sewer pipe, among other things, and coming to rest in plaintiffs’ living room,”
The complaint was filed on Dec. 30 in the U.S. District Court of California.
Media reports that several complaints of this nature have been reported with several federal institutions.
Tesla reviewed each complaint and concluded that its driver’s fault not of the car. Drivers actually use accelerator pedal instead of brake that result in such incidents. Similar happened to Son who would have pressed the pedal “all the way to 100 percent.”
Although the company brought an independent evidence into play to explain the situation, it cannot be considered substantial in court proceedings.
