Tesla is recalling over 48,000 model-year 2018-2022 Model 3 Performance vehicles due to a software issue. The speedometer may not display the unit of speed (mph or kph) correctly while in Track Mode. As a result, the driver may not know how fast the vehicle is traveling, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on June 6, 2022. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 877-798-3752 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, Tesla will perform an over-the-air (OTA) software update.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
