A door safety issue triggers Tesla to recall 120,000 vehicles!!
Tesla’s just announced their second vehicle safety recall here in the U.S. in less than two weeks. This latest one covers over 120,000 Model S and Model X cars built between 2021-2023. Basically the issue is a software flaw that could let doors randomly fly open during collisions. Not good – the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that poses big risks of injuries. Plus it puts their fancy electric cars out of compliance with key safety rules.
But to their credit, Tesla isn’t wasting any time trying to fix this. They’re pushing out an over-the-air update ASAP to all affected vehicles to patch that pesky software bug before something bad happens. And they say owners will get official notices about it in the mail come February.
What’s crazy is this follows another gigantic recall they just did earlier this month on over 2 million vehicles. That one was about making sure Autopilot has enough safeguards to keep drivers still paying attention and ready to take over controls. You bet that also got an over-the-air upgrade immediately.
So between these back-to-back recalls, it definitely shows Tesla is trying hard to stay on issues soon as they come up. They’re really using those high tech software update powers every chance they get to tweak vehicles after purchase if anything funky emerges. And you know that safety agency is watching closely to keep the heat on Tesla staying transparent with customers about all this too.
