Tesla Recalls 817K U.S. Vehicles

Tesla Inc. is recalling more than 817,000 vehicles in the U.S. because an audible alert may not activate when a vehicle starts and the driver has not buckled their seat belt.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said some 2021-2022 Model S and Model X, 2017-2022 Model 3, and 2020-2022 Model Y vehicles fail to comply with a federal motor vehicle safety standard on “occupant crash protection” because the audible chime does not activate. Tesla will perform an over-the-air (OTA) software update to address the issue.
