And here I thought Musky Musk only wanted to hire the best and the brightest engineers for his companies like Tesla.
It appears that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has come for Tesla once again. This time its due to backup cameras on nearly 200,000 Model Y, S, and X vehicles from 2023. This is more than 10% of Tesla’s alleged 2023 output of 1.8 million vehicles. The issue stems from cameras not turning on when reverse is engaged on the vehicle. The NHTSA has stated that the issue stems from a software glitch.
Tesla has issued a recall on the vehicles and have delivered an over-the-air (OTA) update for all the affected cars. Customers will also be notified via mail on March 22.
No crashes have been reported due to the faulty cameras yet. However, Tesla has had to process 81 warranty claims that may be related to the reported issue.
Maybe running everything on software isn’t the real way to go with cars. Just too many bugs for me.
