Second recall

Tesla has recalled 120,423 of its pricy motors in the United States over concerns that the car’s door locks might open during collisions.

The new recall targets Tesla's Model X and Model S vehicles manufactured between 2021 and 2023.

The company said it is working to enhance vehicle safety and swiftly address any identified concerns. However, this is just the latest recall for Tesla which recently announced the recall of two million of the expensive cars over its autopilot driver attentiveness software.

This followed a two-year investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) into accidents occurring during Autopilot use.

The software update specifically targets the Tesla Autosteer function, a key component of the Autopilot system responsible for keeping vehicles on course on motorways.

The update introduces alerts to enhance driver awareness and attentiveness when Autopilot is in use. Importantly, it restricts the use of Autosteer based on environmental conditions, with notifications informing drivers when Autosteer is disengaged, as outlined in the recall documents.

Tesla said that it ensures to make its cars provide safer and more reliable autonomous driving experiences for its users.
