Tesla and Motor Vehicle Recalls
In October 2023, Reuters reported that Tesla was recalling more than 50,000 Model X vehicles due to a problem with the brakes. More specifically, Tesla Model X vehicles that were manufactured between 2021 and 2023 could have a defect where “the vehicle controller is likely to fail to detect low brake fluid and not display a warning light.” Although Tesla reported that it was not aware of any crashes connected to the recall, the defect has the potential to cause serious crashes and personal injuries.
