Tesla to recall 200,000 vehicles in U.S. to fix rearview glitch2024-01-26 17:40 by Daniela
Tesla is recalling nearly 200,000 Model S, X, and Y vehicles in the U.S. due to a software malfunction that could obstruct drivers' visibility while reversing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said on Friday. Tesla had received 81 warranty claims possibly related to the problem as of Jan. 22, per the report.
Tesla became aware of the problem in December and decided on a recall on January 12. Customers will receive a letter alerting them to the problem by March 22. The company says that it's not aware of any crashes, injuries or deaths associated with the malfunction.
The auto maker has already released an over-the-air software update free of charge to owners to remedy the issue.
Tesla's latest recall follows a record one last month, when the automaker recalled 2 million Tesla vehicles over a defective system that was designed to ensure drivers were paying attention when using its Autopilot feature. It came after a series of deadly crashes involving Tesla's Autopilot software that were investigated by the NHTSA.
