This week, the latest Tesla recalls include 30,000 Model X vehicles with front passenger airbag issues. According to Reuters, there is an issue in a select number of Model X vehicles that will cause the front passenger airbag to deploy incorrectly. Airbag issues are a significant problem as these issues affect safety, and a bad deployment could cause terrible harm to someone.
The good news is Tesla reports they have not seen any reports of accidents, injuries, or deaths related to this issue. The company is going to address the issue with an over-the-air software update.
The latest Tesla recalls includes a batch of 321,000 vehicles with tail lights that fail to illuminate. According to Reuters, “in the filing published Saturday to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the electric vehicle manufacturer said the tail light-related recall covers some 2023 Model 3 and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles.”
As with the airbag problem, Tesla plans on issuing an over-the-air update which should fix the problem with the taillights. Tesla says the company was alerted to the issue following customer complaints in October. Most of those complaints came from foreign markets for these cars. The company did receive three warranty reports over the failing taillight issue.
