Lawsuit Against Tesla Expanded Claiming Model 3 Sudden Acceleration

Tesla Model 3s also suffer dangerous sudden acceleration, lawsuit claims.

San Jose based The Mercury News reports of a new and expanding lawsuit, claiming Tesla Model 3s suffering dangerous sudden acceleration, but Tesla has stated that ‘unintended acceleration’ in Teslas doesn’t happen.

The Mercury News reports.

Nearly two dozen additional Tesla owners have signed onto a lawsuit claiming the Bay Area car maker’s mass-market Model 3 sedan shares a dangerous glitch with two other models.

The suit, originally filed in January by eight plaintiffs in six states, on Monday expanded to 23 plaintiffs in 11 states. The Tesla owners allege the Palo Alto electric vehicle firm “has been intentionally overlooking a dangerous problem while rushing its vehicles to market.”
