Tesla to Recall Model X Vehicles Due to Brake Fluid Detection Issue
Tesla to Recall Model X Vehicles
The U.S. auto regulator announced on Tuesday that Tesla will recall 54,676 Model X vehicles manufactured between 2021-2023. This recall is necessary as the vehicle controller is likely to fail to detect low brake fluid levels and not display a warning light.
Software Update to Fix the Issue
Tesla has taken immediate action by releasing an over-the-air (OTA) software update, free of charge, to address this issue. The update aims to rectify the problem and ensure the safety of Model X owners and passengers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
No Reported Incidents
The NHTSA has confirmed that there have been no reported crashes, injuries, or fatalities related to this brake fluid detection issue as of October 10th. This indicates that the proactive recall and software update have been implemented before any serious incidents occurred.
Tesla has not yet responded to Reuters’ request for comment on the recall. However, their prompt action in releasing the software update demonstrates their commitment to addressing potential safety concerns and ensuring customer satisfaction.
In August, the NHTSA initiated an investigation into 280,000 new Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles. This investigation was prompted by reports of loss of steering control and power steering. It is crucial for Tesla to address safety concerns promptly and effectively to maintain their reputation as a leading electric vehicle manufacturer.
Ensuring Safety and Peace of Mind
With the recall and software update, Tesla is taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of Model X owners. By proactively addressing potential issues, Tesla demonstrates its commitment to customer satisfaction and maintaining the highest safety standards in the automotive industry.
