Tesla is recalling over 475,000 of its vehicles because of a pair of safety issues. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 356,309 Tesla Model 3s covering model years 2017-2020 are being recalled due to problems with the rearview cameras. The 2017-2020 Model S is the other target with 119,009 of those BEVs due to a problem with the front hood latch. 

For the Model 3, the NHTSA says that the problem comes from a cable harness for the rearview camera, which “may be damaged by the opening and closing of the trunk lid, preventing the rearview camera image from displaying.”

On the Model S, problems with the latch for the front hood may cause the “frunk” to open while the vehicle is in motion and without warning, which would obstruct the driver’s visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.”
