From Consumer Reports:
Tesla CEO Details Plans for Model 3 Brake Fix

Tuesday evening, Musk spoke at length on the phone with our director of auto testing to better understand our findings and share information that Tesla had discovered about the braking issue.

It's a really nice article on the subject. Not nearly as contentious as some other articles on the subject (<cough>electrek</cough>).
