Tesla announced the recall of more than 125.000 vehicles in the United States. The reason: a problem found in software that prevents the seat belt warning system from activating, which ends up increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

The information was revealed by United States federal regulators on Friday (14). According to information revealed by the “UOL” portal, the share of the company, which is owned by the billionaire Elon Musk, involves the following models:

  • Tesla Model S, manufactured between 2012 and 2024;
  • Model Y, produced between 2020 and 2023;
  • Model X from 2015 and 2024;
  • Model 3 from 2017 to 2023.

According to the aforementioned portal, the information appears in a document from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and although Tesla has no records of collisions, fatalities or injuries resulting from this issue, the company has identified 104 possible warranty claims related to the defect.

To resolve the issue, Tesla will provide a free software update over-the-air to affected vehicles, eliminating dependence on the seat occupancy sensor.

More than two million cars recovered

Tesla has already recovered around 2,5 million vehicles in six recalls carried out this year, according to the NHTSA. This number places Tesla as the second automaker with the most recalled cars in the US in 2024, behind only Ford, which issued 26 recalls covering more than 3 million vehicles.

Elon Musk's company may have to pay a million-dollar fine

NHTSA requested additional information from Tesla drivers to review Autopilot software due to “several concerns” that the recall issued by the company in December did not resolve the problems with the system.

Regulators identified 20 additional accidents after the update. If Tesla does not cooperate with the agency's investigation into Autopilot, the company could face a daily fine of up to $27.168 per violation, totaling up to $135 million.
