Though Tesla had a rough February, 2022 has otherwise been relatively quiet for the California-based automaker on the recall front until now. A new safety missive has been issued for almost 130,000 vehicles across its model lineup over overheating hardware during fast charging.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2021-22 Model S sedans and Model X SUVs, and model-year 2022 Model 3 sedans and Model Y SUVs running firmware releases prior to 2022.12.3.3 except 2022.11.101.1. The infotainment central processing unit may overheat during the preparation or process of fast charging, causing the CPU to lag or restart. That may prevent the center screen from displaying the rearview camera image, gear selection, windshield visibility control settings and warning lights, increasing the risk of a crash.
As with Tesla’s other major 2022 recalls, the automaker will perform an over-the-air software update for free to fix this issue. Tesla will begin notifying owners July 1, but in the meantime, those with questions can call Tesla at 877-798-3752, or visit NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
