Tesla Model S and Model X Recall

In a recall sought by U.S. auto safety regulators the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 134,951 Model S and Model X Tesla Vehicles are being recalled for defective  touchscreen displays that could fail, thus raising the risk of a crash. The recall is for 2012 – 2018 Tesla Model S and 2016 – 2018 Tesla Model X vehicles.

Tesla said in its filing with the NHTSA that “in the interest of bringing administrative closure to the investigation and to ensure the best ownership experience for our customers” it agreed to a voluntary recall.

NHTSA opened an investigation in June 2020 into complaints that media control unit (MCU) failures led to touchscreen displays not working. The agency said other auto manufacturers issued numerous recalls for similar safety issues arising from the touchscreen failure.

NHTSA said in November that it reviewed 12,523 claims and complaints about the issue.
