Tesla has had to heavily recall its Model S and Model X cars, the reason being due to a malfunctioning touchscreen.

The case was examined by the US National Road Safety Administration (NHTSA), which determined that the touchscreen could malfunction when the integrated system’s 8GB of storage space runs out.

Then the turn signals, the rear camera or defroster devices, and even the so-called autopilot functions.

The bugs were discovered by the US government in January, and Tesla was alerted on January 13, 2021. The NHTSA says the only way to fix the problem is to replace the chip.

Tesla does not agree with the term “manufacturing defect” of the vehicles and thus calls for a number to investigate. This is the manufacturer’s official message. Elon Musk finds that the NHTSA’s expectation that flash memory will remain usable for the life of the car is unrealistic.

We’re talking about the Tesla Model S, which was produced between 2012 and 2018, and the Tesla Model X with a production date between 2016 and 2018. They have an integrated Nvidia Tegra 3 chip and an 8GB eMMC NAND flash chip.

Tesla suspicious cars will be recalled on March 30, 2021. The company will provide free component replacement.
