TESLA has just recalled 300,000 vehicles due to a software glitch that makes cars’ headlights go off intermittently, increasing the odds of traffic accidents.
Tesla claims they will be releasing a software patch that will resolve these issues.
The vehicle recall can affect cars that were released between the years 2020, 2021, and 2022.
Around 321,628 vehicles could be affected.
Tesla learned of these issues when customers, primarily from abroad, began contacting them to report glitches in their taillights.
Tesla launched an investigation that was completed this month and resulted in the recall of some of these vehicles.
Vehicles that are currently in production or have yet to be delivered to buyers got the patch update on November 6th and should be safe to use.
Starting January 14, Tesla will send letters to the owners of the affected vehicles.
