Tesla Recalls Over 125,000 Vehicles Due to Faulty Seat Belt Warning System

Tesla has issued a recall affecting more than 125,000 of its vehicles due to a malfunction in the seat belt warning systems. This problem pertains to the system’s failure to provide the required visual and audible reminders when the driver’s seat belt is not fastened, a violation of federal safety standards, as reported in documents submitted by Tesla to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The recall encompasses various models spanning several years: the 2012 to 2024 Model S, the 2015 to 2024 Model X, the 2017 to 2023 Model 3, and the 2020 to 2023 Model Y.

According to the documents, Tesla has received 104 warranty claims related to this seat belt warning issue. However, the company stated that it is not aware of any accidents, injuries, or fatalities linked to this defect. To address the issue, Tesla plans to release a free software update to affected vehicles in June.

This recall is the latest in a string of recent recalls by the electric vehicle manufacturer. In April, Tesla recalled 3,878 units of its 2024 Cybertrucks due to a problem with the accelerator pedal becoming stuck, which could potentially cause unintended acceleration and increase the risk of a crash.

Earlier, in January, the company recalled nearly 200,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to a malfunctioning backup camera when the car is in reverse.

Furthermore, in February, the NHTSA announced the recall of nearly 2.2 million Tesla vehicles sold in the U.S. due to some warning lights on the instrument panel being too small.

Despite these setbacks, Tesla, led by billionaire Elon Musk, continues to push forward with its mission to lead the electric vehicle market. The company remains committed to ensuring the safety and reliability of its vehicles, as evidenced by its proactive recall measures and continuous software updates to address and rectify issues.
