Tesla Cybertruck Recall: Windshield Wiper Motor Controller Issue and What It Means for Owners

Boasting a revolutionary stainless steel body and an enormous single windshield wiper, the Tesla Cybertruck has captured attention since its revelation.

However, a recent hitch emerged for the futuristic truck. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported a recall on over 11,000 Cybertrucks due to a potential issue with the windshield wiper motor controller.

The source of the problem might lie in faulty testing at a supplier, potentially harming a key component. Unlike traditional car purchases, Tesla Cybertruck hopefuls can ditch the dealership and head online to research potential safety concerns.

This can be done by using the vehicle’s unique identification number (VIN) with a decoder tool from Tesla or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These tools reveal if a specific truck has any outstanding recalls.

While VINs for most US-built cars traditionally begin with 1, 4, or 5, the 2024 Cybertruck breaks the mold with a leading 7, proudly reflecting its American roots.

This numbering system extends to North American neighbors with Canada using a 2 and Mexico using a 3 at the VIN’s beginning.

The Cybertruck, a lightning rod for both praise and criticism, offers a range that hinges on the chosen drivetrain. Both the All-Wheel Drive and Cyberbeast trims boast an impressive range due to their larger 123-kWh battery packs.

This extended range makes them a compelling option compared to the base Rear-Wheel Drive variant. These hefty batteries, utilizing 4680-type cells, contribute significantly to the truck’s weight, tipping the scales at a substantial 1,590 pounds (720 kg). To put that in perspective, a 2024 Mazda Roadster comes in at a much lighter 1,010 kg (2,227 pounds).
