Tesla Recalls Over 2 Million Vehicles Over Road Safety Concerns

Tesla has recalled 2.2 million vehicles, nearly its entire fleet in the United States, due to an issue with the font size on warning lights.

The move was informed by concerns raised by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) which announced on Friday that the small font size could increase the risk of accidents.

This recall surpasses the previous record set two months ago when Tesla recalled 2.03 million vehicles in the U.S. to add new safety features to its Autopilot advanced driver-assistance system.

The NHTSA has been closely monitoring Tesla’s autonomous driving aid, designed to allow cars to steer, accelerate, and brake automatically within their lane.

The current recall affects a range of Tesla models, including the Model S, Model X, Model 3 (2017-2023), Model Y, and the 2024 Cybertruck, according to the NHTSA.

“Warning lights with a smaller font size can make critical safety information on the instrument panel difficult to read, increasing the risk of a crash.”

Tesla has started rolling out a free over-the-air software update to increase the font size of the brake, park, and antilock brake system (ABS) visual warning indicators, as stated in the recall report.

Tesla’s new electric pickup truck, the Cybertruck, which is currently in production, has also begun receiving the software update to rectify the issue.
