4 Recalls for 2018 Tesla Model X

Recall Date Component Summary
March 18, 2022 BACK OVER PREVENTION:DISPLAY FUNCTION

Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Model S, Model X, and 2017-2020 Model 3 vehicles equipped with Autopilot Computer 2.5 and operating certain firmware releases. The rearview image may not immediately display when the vehicle begins to reverse. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, “Rear Visibility.”

Remedy:

Tesla will perform an over-the-air (OTA) software update, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed May 17, 2022. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla’s number for this recall is SB-22-00-004.

January 27, 2022 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:ADAS:AUTONOMOUS/SELF DRIVING:SOFTWARE

Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2016-2022 Model S and Model X, 2017-2022 Model 3, and 2020-2022 Model Y vehicles. The “rolling stop” functionality available as part of the Full Self-Driving (Beta) software may allow the vehicle to travel through an all-way stop intersection without first coming to a stop.

Remedy:

Tesla will perform an over-the-air (OTA) software update that disables the “rolling stop” functionality, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed March 28, 2022. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla’s number for this recall is SB-22-00-001.

October 29, 2021 FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE: AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING | FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE: SENSING SYSTEM: CAMERA | FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE: WARNINGS | FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE:SOFTWARE

Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2017-2021 Model S, Model 3, Model X, and 2020-2021 Model Y vehicles operating software version 2021.36.5.2. A communication error may cause false forward-collision warning (FCW) or unexpected activation of the automatic emergency brake (AEB) system.

Remedy:

Tesla Service has released an over the air (OTA) software update, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed December 28, 2021. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla’s number for this recall is SB-21-00-004.

January 29, 2021 BACK OVER PREVENTION:SOFTWARE | EXTERIOR LIGHTING:TURN SIGNAL | VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER/HVAC SYSTEM

Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2012-2018 Tesla Model S and 2016-2018 Model X vehicles with a center display equipped with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and an 8GB eMMC NAND flash memory device. When the 8GB eMMC NAND flash memory device for the center display reaches lifetime wear, the eMMC controller will no longer be able to maintain the integrity of the filesystem, causing a failure in some of the center display functions.

Remedy:

Owners should ensure their vehicles are operating firmware release 2020.48.48.12 or newer, which will alert owners if the eMMC is approaching lifetime wear. Tesla will notify owners, and will replace the VCM daughterboard with one containing an enhanced eMMC controller, free of charge. The recall began March 29, 2021. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 1-877-798-3752. Tesla’s number for this recall is SB-21-21-001.
