Tesla is recalling nearly 200,000 vehicles over concerns with the rearview camera sensing system. 

The recall involves vehicles equipped with full self-driving computer 4.0 and running a software release version 2023.44.30 through 2023.44.30.6 or 2023.44.100, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall cites software instability, which may prevent the rearview camera image from displaying while in reverse, decreasing driver visibility and increasing crash risk. 

The recall impacts 199,575 vehicles and includes 2023 Model S, 2023 Model X and 2023 Model Y vehicles.

Owners will be notified by mail on March 22 and Tesla has already released an over-the-air software update to remedy the issue. 

Earlier this month, Tesla recalled more than 1.6 million vehicles in China to address worries over its Autopilot driver-assistance tech, less than a month after the company was forced to recall more than 2 million vehicles in the United States to effectively address the same problem.
