Tesla finally acknowledges eMMC failure with its touchscreen, offers extended warranty

Tesla announced that it is extending its warranty for its MCU touchscreen over a longtime eMMC failure problem that rendered the screen useless.

The move comes after NHTSA put some pressure on Tesla.

Owners of older Tesla Model S and Model X vehicles have been reporting some issues with their MCUs.

The touchscreen becomes less responsive, the power-up time becomes longer, the screen freezes and has to be rebooted, or there is even total failure of the MCU unit.
