Tesla Recalls 135,000 Vehicles for Tech Problem

Tesla Model S

The Wall Street Journal and others are reporting that Tesla is recalling around 135,000 Model S and Model X vehicles due to a fault with their touchscreen facility. This is being reported as one of Tesla’s largest-ever safety actions and is due to reports that the screens can fail when the memory runs out of storage.

So what happens when the storage is full?  It can lead to defrosting, signalling and driver assistance issues.  Nothing to panic about there, then…

Tesla, which sold around half a million vehicles last year, said it didn’t agree that this was in fact a ‘defect’, but it also agreed to co-operate with the recall.
