Tesla, an American multinational automaker that builds electric cars, has issued back-to-back recalls for some of its vehicles.
A report released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that approximately 29,348 Tesla Model X cars have the potential for their front passenger airbag system to deploy incorrectly in certain “low-speed” collisions. “.
The risk could be resolved with a free software update for current owners of the Model X vehicle. Vehicles in production and in pre-delivery containment received the firmware update “which includes the cure” last Tuesday.
A separate recall decision was made after NHTSA found 321,628 2023 Model 3 and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles had the potential to exhibit reduced visibility in dark conditions. This is due to the taillights coming on intermittently.
Due to the recalls, an online database has been created for Tesla owners to check whether or not their vehicle has been affected.
The most recent recalls come shortly after Tesla released its third-quarter results in October.
