Tesla is recalling more than 321,000 vehicles in the United States because the taillights may intermittently fail to light, the company said in a statement released Saturday.
The news followed the company’s recall of nearly 30,000 Model X vehicles in the United States on Friday over a problem that could cause the front passenger airbag to deploy improperly, sending its shares down nearly 3% to a near two-year low.
In a statement released Saturday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the electric vehicle maker said the recall related to taillights affects certain 2020-2023 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles.
Texas-based Tesla said it would roll out an over-the-air update to fix the taillight problem and said it had no reports of any accidents or injuries related to the recall.
The company said the recall follows customer complaints it became aware of in late October, mostly from overseas markets, that claimed the car’s taillights did not light up.
Investigation revealed that on rare occasions, the light may intermittently fail due to an anomaly that may cause a false fault detection during the vehicle’s wake-up process. Tesla said it has received three warranty reports for the problem.
Tesla reported 19 recalls in the U.S. in 2022, covering more than 3.7 million vehicles, including four recalls in November, according to NHTSA data.
