The most recent recall from Tesla includes over 40,000, 2017-2021 Model S and Model X vehicles. The issue, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, could potentially cause a loss of power steering assist, after hitting a pothole, or when driving on rough roads. This could in turn, increase crash risk as a loss of power steering assist can require greater steering effort. This is especially true at lower speeds.
Tesla has released an over-the-air software update that will recalibrate the system. In October, a firmware release caused some vehicles to lose power. As of today 97% of the recalled Tesla vehicles have installed the update that fixes the issue. No further action is required for this recall once the update has been installed.
