AutoBeta( Report--

Tesla will recall 199575 cars in the United States due to problems with rear-view camera images, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website today. There are 2023 Model S, Model X and Model Y models involved this time.

Officials say the recall is due to software instability that may prevent rearview camera images from being displayed. It is easy to cause the vehicle in specific circumstances, the rearview camera can not work properly, there is no way to provide the necessary rear field of vision for the driver, which increases the driver's driving risk. At present, Tesla has released OTA software updates to solve this problem.

It is worth noting that in recent months, Tesla has been recalled many times in the United States. Tesla announced a recall of more than 2.03 million vehicles in the United States on December 13, 2023, including the 2012-2023 Model S, the 2016-2023 Model X, the 2017-2023 Model 3 and the 2020-2023 Model Y. It is understood that the recall covers almost all models sold in the United States by Tesla since the launch of the autopilot system at the end of 2015.

The reason for the recall is that all Tesla models equipped with FSD Beta (fully automatic driving) software have safety risks and there is no way to ensure that drivers still pay enough attention when the system starts autopilot. FSD Beta may cause vehicles to behave unsafely near intersections, such as going straight in lanes that can only turn, not fully stopping at intersections that require complete parking, or rushing into intersections when the yellow light is on. To this end, Tesla will solve this problem through OTA updates and remote software updates to the equipment through wireless communication technology.

Less than two weeks after the recall, on December 24, 2023, the side door of the vehicle may be unlocked in the event of a collision, increasing the risk of injury to passengers. Tesla also announced a recall of 120423 vehicles in the United States, including the 2021-2023 Model S and X models, and officials said they would carry out free software updates via OTA.

It is worth noting that, in addition to the recall in the US market, on January 5 this year, due to the problem of door unlocking logic control, Tesla, in the event of a collision, the door latch on the non-collision side may be detached from the lock, leaving the door in an unlocked state. There are security risks. It announced a recall of some imported Model S and Model X electric vehicles from October 26, 2022 to November 16, 2023 in China, totaling 7538 vehicles.

In addition, when the automatic auxiliary steering function is turned on, the driver may misuse the two-stage combined driving assistance function, which increases the risk of vehicle collision and has potential safety risks. Tesla announced in China a recall of 1610105 imported Model S, Model X, Model 3 and domestic Model 3 and Model Y electric vehicles that were manufactured between August 26, 2014 and December 20, 2023.

Judging from the number of Tesla's recent recalls, the number has reached tens of thousands. Although it is said to recall vehicles and update OTA software for vehicles, it reflects the responsible attitude of car companies. However, too frequent and large-scale recalls will inevitably have a negative impact on the brand reputation.
