Federal agency looking into sudden acceleration complaints from Tesla owners

One key feature of cars is that they can accelerate at high speeds, but only when the owner wants them to. Now, enough Tesla owners have complained about random, unintended acceleration that a federal agency is looking into it.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration opened an investigation of sorts into the matter on Monday. It’s based on a petition for investigation, which cited 127 different customer complaints about sudden unintended acceleration in Teslas Model S, X, and 3 manufactured between 2013 and 2019.
