Approximately 90 Tesla Model 3 sedans are being recalled due to sun visor issues. The driver side sun visor may not have the required airbag warning information. The lack of airbag information increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Tesla will notify owners by the end of October. Owners can call the automaker at 877-798-3752 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To remedy the situation, dealers will check to see if the label is missing, and if so, install a new sun visor with the warning information on it.
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.
