Software Error Leads to Recall of 200,000 Vehicles

Tesla is recalling almost 200,000 of its electric vehicles to fix a software problem that could prevent its rear-view cameras from working properly when the cars are in reverse. This recall includes some 2023 Tesla Models S, X and Y that have fully autonomous driving technology.

According to a report released this week by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the problem with the cars' rearview cameras was discovered when Tesla began receiving reports of this phenomenon at the end of December. Tesla is not aware of any accidents occurring due to the problem, and according to the NHTSA, the company has released a software update that may solve the problem, and that owners will be notified via letter, which will be sent by March 22.

According to the report, since January, Tesla has received more than 80 warranty claims, possibly related to the problem.

It's not the first time that the US giant has had to issue vehicle recalls, having done so with some regularity over the years. Most recently, the company recalled more than 2 million vehicles in December due to a flaw in its Autopilot autonomous driving feature. The recall followed a two-year investigation by the NHTSA.
