Tesla has issued another recall due to issues with the touch screens in several of its models. It’s the company’s second recall this month. 

The recall impacts 129,960 vehicles and includes certain 2021-2022 Model S, Model X and 2022 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles operating certain firmware releases.
