Tesla recalls 321,000 automobiles in the U.S. due to problems with taillights

On Saturday, Tesla published an announcement about the recall of more than 321,000 cars in the United States. The reason is a problem with the taillights, which periodically fail to work.

On Friday, the company recalled nearly 30,000 Model X automobiles in the United States because of an improperly triggering front passenger seat airbag. After the information was released, the company's stock dropped nearly 3%, coming close to almost a two-year minimum.

On Saturday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) received a statement from the electric car manufacturer. The company informed about the recall of vehicles due to problems with the taillights and said that it involves some cars of the Model 3 2023 and Model Y 2020-2023.

Tesla Company in Texas reported no complaints about any accidents or injuries due to the automobiles to be recalled. Also, it stated that it will release a wireless update to fix the problem with the taillights.

According to the statement from the company, customers complained for the first time about the problem with the taillights at the end of October. Most of the complaints about the taillights failing to illuminate came from foreign markets. After that, it was decided to recall the cars.

The investigation results have identified an anomaly that can cause a detection of a non-existent problem during the process of vehicle wake-up. Sometimes it brings the taillights periodically not functioning.
