Tesla is recalling more than 320,000 vehicles in the US over taillight problems

Tesla is recalling more than 321,000 vehicles in the United States because taillights occasionally fail to illuminate, the company said in a document made public Saturday.

The news follows the company’s Friday recall of nearly 30,000 Model X cars in the United States over a problem that could prevent the front passenger airbag from deploying properly, sending its stock down nearly 3% to a nearly two-year low. year.

In its filing published Saturday with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the electric vehicle manufacturer said the taillight-related recall affects some 2023 Model 3 and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles.

Texas-based Tesla said it will deploy an over-the-air update to fix the taillight issue and said it has no reports of any crashes or injuries related to the recall.

The company said the recall followed customer complaints it was aware of at the end of October, largely from foreign markets, alleging that vehicles’ taillights were not illuminating.

The investigation found that on rare occasions, the lights occasionally fail to work due to an anomaly that can cause false fault detections during the vehicle’s wake-up process. Tesla said it had received three warranty reports on the issue.

According to NHTSA data, Tesla has reported 19 U.S. recalls for more than 3.7 million vehicles by 2022, including four recalls in November.
