Tesla is recalling about 2.4 million vehicles

Tesla is recalling a total of about 2.4 million vehicles in the U.S. due to two separate problems.

The essentials in a nutshell

  • Electric car maker Tesla is recalling about 2.4 million vehicles.

  • The reverse camera fails in about 200,000 cars; In another 2.2 million vehicles, warnings for brakes, handbrakes and ABS are too small.

  • Bugs should be fixed through over-the-air updates (OTA).

Electric car maker Tesla is back in the headlines. Elon Musk's team recorded two recalls within a few days in the US.

“Chip” writes that nearly 200,000 electric models are being recalled due to a potential failure of the rear-view camera. It may simply fail.

Tesla is also recalling nearly 2.2 million vehicles because warnings about brakes, handbrakes and ABS are too small, “24Auto” writes. US guidelines state that the font should be at least 3.2 millimeters high.

That's why the rear camera is important

As “Futurezone” explains, the automobile manufacturer has been using a “Full Self-Drive” (FSD) mode for years – a complete autopilot for an electric car.

For everything to work smoothly, all the cameras – including the rear-view camera – must work properly. Otherwise, it will have a significant impact on driver safety.
