The recall affects specific Model S and X vehicles manufactured in the United States between 2021 and 2023, according to a document from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Tesla has assured the public that no injuries or claims related to this issue have been reported. The company promptly detected the fault and has already implemented an over-the-air (OTA) software update for affected vehicles. Owners of the impacted cars are expected to receive notification letters by February 17, 2024, with instructions on how to proceed.

This recall follows Tesla’s recent decision to restrict the use of its Autopilot system on nearly two million vehicles in the United States. The move came after a thorough two-year investigation into nearly 1,000 crashes involving the activated Autopilot feature.

The NHTSA expressed concerns about potential misuse of the Autopilot system in risky circumstances, where Tesla’s technology might struggle to navigate accurately. This misuse could create a false sense of confidence among drivers, raising questions about the reliability of the system in critical situations. Tesla continues to navigate safety challenges as it prioritizes addressing potential issues to ensure the well-being of its vehicle occupants.
