The complaint, filed on December 19 but published on Friday, says the problem happened to 127 different cars in the three Tesla models currently for sale: the Model S, Model X and Model 3. The involuntary acceleration problem caused 110 accidents and 52 people were injured as a result, according to the complaint.
The name of the parties that filed the complaint was not disclosed. Many of the complaints involved incidents that involved parking the car or leaving a parking space.
The office of the National Transportation Highway Safety Administration, which investigates such complaints, says it is investigating the allegations. You still have to decide whether or not there is enough evidence to open a defect investigation.
Complaints of involuntary acceleration have often proved to be the fault of drivers stepping on the wrong pedal and not realizing that they were using the accelerator when they intended to use the brake.
