Tesla Recalls Another 947 Cars
Tesla has announced yet another recall, this time for rearview image display issues.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the recall involves 947 vehicles due to an issue with the rearview image not displaying immediately after the car is put into reverse.
The lag time, according to the recall, puts the vehicles out of compliance with a federal safety standard on rear visibility.
The recall impacts 2018-2019 Model S and Model X vehicles, as well as 2017-2020 Model 3 vehicles that have Autopilot Computer 2.5 and operate certain firmware releases.
Tesla plans to fix the issue with an over-the-air software update.
This is Tesla’s fifth recall in the past four months.
On Feb. 10, Tesla recalled 578,607 vehicles with the Boombox feature that the NHTSA said violated federal safety standards.
On Feb. 9, Tesla announced it was recalling more than 26,000 vehicles due to a defective windshield defroster software that the NHTSA said could reduce visibility, putting drivers at risk.
On Feb. 2, Tesla announced it was recalling 53,822 vehicles equipped with self-driving features the company says may cause a crash by not stopping at stop signs.
In December, the company issued a recall of 475,00 vehicles for issues with review cameras due to damage to the camera’s cable harness from opening and closing the trunk.
