Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling approximately 2,193,869 2012-2023 Model S, 2016-2024 Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3, 2019-2024 Model Y, and 2024 Cybertruck vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

An incorrect font size is displayed on the instrument panel for the Brake, Park, and Antilock Brake System (ABS) warning lights.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 105, “Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems” and 135, “Light Vehicle Brake Systems.”

To address the issue, Tesla began releasing an over-the-air (OTA) software update.

Not Tesla’s First Recall

In December, Tesla recalled approximately 2,031,220 vehicles due to Autosteer issues.

“In certain circumstances when Autosteer is engaged, the prominence and scope of the feature’s controls may not be sufficient to prevent driver misuse of the SAE Level 2 advanced driver-assistance feature,” the recall notice said.

In February 2023, the company recalled approximately 362,758 2016-2023 Model S, Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3, and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles equipped with Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD Beta) software or pending installation.
