Nearly two dozen Tesla owners have signed onto a lawsuit in the Bay Area that alleges the company’s Model 3 vehicles can dangerously accelerate on their own.
The suit was filed originally in January by eight plaintiffs in six states and the suit has now expanded to include 23 plaintiffs in 11 different states, according to the East Bay Times. The company “has been intentionally overlooking a dangerous problem while rushing its vehicles to market,” the lawsuit claims.
The unintended acceleration issued had been brought to light in the Model X and Model S and is now appearing in the Model 3, the suit says. We have reported on an array of Model S accidents over the last few years where cars have driven through the front of shops. In fact, two of them happened in one week back in March.
