- Kelley Blue Book analyst Karl Brauer thinks Tesla Motors (TSLA -0.1%) CEO Elon Musk made a rookie mistake by rankling the NHTSA this week over what constitutes a recall.
- Though Musk made a decent point by correcting what many early reports had posted as a traditional recall of Model S cars, a seasoned automobile industry executive would have kept his or her Twitter feed quiet, thinks Brauer.
- Typically, automakers can negotiate behind the scenes with the NHTSA on the size and scope of a recall.
