Tesla is recalling 475,000 vehicles in the US due to safety issues

The US road safety regulator said Tesla is recalling more than 475,000 Model 3 and Model S electric vehicles in the US to address rear-view camera and trunk issues that increase collision risks.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said the U.S. electric vehicle manufacturer is recalling 356,309 2017-2020 Model 3 vehicles to address rear-view camera issues and 119.009 Model S vehicles due to front hood issues.

The total number of vehicles recalled is close to half a million vehicles Tesla delivered last year.

For Model 3 sedans, “the rear view camera cable may be damaged from opening and closing the trunk lid, preventing the rear view camera image from displaying,” NHTSA said.

For Model S cars, problems with the front bonnet latch could cause it to open « without warning and obstruct the driver’s vision, increasing the risk of a crash, » Tesla said.

NHTSA said Tesla is not aware of any accidents, injuries or deaths related to issues with its Model 3 and Model S vehicles.

Tesla is being investigated by the NHTSA on other issues. NHTSA has opened an investigation into 580,000 Tesla vehicles over the company’s decision to allow games to be played on the screens of cars in motion.

Tesla later agreed to stop allowing video games to be played on car screens while its cars were in motion, according to the NHTSA.

In August, the NHTSA opened a formal safety investigation into Tesla’s driver assistance system after a series of accidents involving Tesla models and emergency vehicles.

Under pressure from the NHTSA, Tesla in February agreed to recall 135,000 vehicles with touch screens that could malfunction and increase the risk of an accident.
