The electric vehicle maker issued a software update to fix the braking system of its Model 3 days after Consumer Reports failed to recommend the vehicle because of issues it had with its brake system.
The reviewer had concerns with the Model 3's stopping distance during emergency brake testing. The sedan had a stopping distance of 152 feet when traveling at a speed of 60 mph.
However, Tesla issued an update to fix the problem and on Wednesday Consumer Reports changed its rating to recommend the vehicle.
Musk has been assailed in recent days as incapable of taking criticism after he launched a crusade to root out what he deems as fake news.
Tesla shares rose to session highs following the release of Consumer Reports' revised report. Shares were up 2.65% to $291.23 on Wednesday.
Musk offered further information on the update via Twitter on Wednesday.
