The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has asked Tesla to recall about 158,000 vehicles on faulty touchscreens, the agency said in a letter to the company on Wednesday. NHTSA said some Tesla vehicles’ multimedia control units failed after memory was exhausted, causing issues with the rear view camera, defog and defroster settings, autopilot system and turn signals. The issue affected some 2012-2018 Model S and 2016-2018 Model X vehicles, which used the failed NVIDIA flash memory devices – after only five to six years on average. Vice News first reported on the issue in October 2019, which prompted NHTSA to open an investigation in June 2020. Visit the Business Insider homepage for more articles.
