Tesla is taking action to address a significant safety concern with its Model X vehicles.
The electric car giant has announced a recall of approximately 55,000 Model X SUVs to fix a brake software issue that could potentially lead to accidents.
Software glitch affects braking
The problem lies in the software controlling the vehicle's brakes. According to Tesla, the software glitch could cause the brakes to activate without any input from the driver, posing a risk of unexpected deceleration and potential collisions.
Tesla plans to resolve the issue through an over-the-air software update, eliminating the need for owners to visit a service center. The update is expected to be rolled out in the coming weeks.
According to USAToday, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has been informed of the recall and is monitoring Tesla's actions to ensure the issue is adequately addressed.
Tesla will be notifying affected Model X owners via email and will provide instructions on how to update their vehicle's software to fix the brake issue.
