Tesla Recalling 475,318 Model 3 and Model S Cars Says NHTSA

Tesla has issued a recall for over 475,000 vehicles, specifically its Model 3 and Model S electric vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (via Automotive News).

Approximately 356,309 Model 3 vehicles produced from 2017-2020 are being recalled by Tesla to fix rearview camera issues. “The rearview camera cable harness may be damaged by the opening and closing of the trunk lid, preventing the rearview camera image from displaying,” said Tesla’s notice.

For the Model S, there are 119,009 cars being recalled due to front hood problems that could open “without warning and obstruct the driver’s visibility, increasing the risk of a crash,” said Tesla to the NHTSA.

According to Tesla, it told the NHTSA it is not aware of any injuries, crashes or deaths related to these recall issues with the Model 3 and Model S electric vehicles.

Earlier this month, the NHTSA launched an investigation into Tesla’s gaming feature that can be played by passengers while driving. Tesla recently fixed the problem by releasing a software update that requires the passenger seat controls to be adjusted while driving, in order to unlock the playability of some games.
