Tesla recalls 120 thousand cars in the US due to a door safety issue

Tesla has announced that it is recalling 120,423 vehicles in the United States. This is the second time in a few weeks that the automaker has taken such measures. This was reported by Engadget.

This time, we’re talking about Tesla Model S and X manufactured between 2021 and 2023. The decision to recall the car was made due to a problem with the door safety.

According to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this increases the risk of injury and means that these Tesla electric vehicles do not meet federal safety standards.

The company has already announced the release of a software update to address the issue.

A few weeks ago, it became known that Tesla will update the software of more than 2 million cars in the United States. The company is taking this action after the US regulator discovered a defect in the Autopilot system. This was preceded by a two-year investigation into 956 accidents that occurred while using the technology.

Recently, a former Tesla employee, Lukasz Krupski, said that he didn’t think the technology in the company’s self-driving cars was safe enough to be used on public roads.
