Tesla has issued a recall report through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that affects its X Models manufactured between February 2021 – September 2023. The vehicle controller that signals the sensors when there is low brake fluid may not function properly when the fluid levels are low, which could impact the braking system and increase the risk of a collision.
According to the report, a software update has been deployed to correct this defect and owners do not need to take their vehicles to a service center. The number of potentially affected Tesla’s are 54,676, and the over the-air (OTA) software version 2023.32.7 has been released, and affected owners have been advised to install this release to fix the bug.
For vehicles operating the Full Self Driving (FSD) Beta software, a similar update will be deployed during the scheduled FSD software update. Affected owners will reportedly be notified by mail starting from December 12 2023.
In February 2023, Incognito Blog reported a recall of certain FSD equipped Tesla models, and cited that the company does not appreciate the term ‘recall’ since the remedy is usually a software update.
