    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Friday it will review a petition asking the agency to formally investigate 500,000 Tesla Inc vehicles over sudden unintended acceleration reports.

    The petition covers 2012 through 2019 model year Tesla Model S, 2016 through 2019 Tesla Model X, and 2018 through 2019 Tesla Model 3 vehicles, the agency said. The petition cites "127 consumer complaints to NHTSA involving 123 unique vehicles. The reports include 110 crashes and 52 injuries," the agency added.

    I saw the same movie at Toyota 10 years ago.

    Like I said in my other similar reply, could it just be loose floor mats. 129 complaints is pretty small, and if it was software it maybe has already been fixed. On the off chance that it's real and happens to me, I think the best action I've heard may be shifting to Neutral.
