Tesla recalls 135000 vehicles over touchscreen failures

Tesla today issued one of its largest recalls to date, covering roughly 135,000 Model S and Model X. The touchscreen is the concern.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the touchscreen in these vehicles can fail when a memory chip runs out of storage capacity, which can cause a host of failures, including affecting turn signals and defrosters, and the rearview camera. This failure can also affect Tesla’s self-driving Autopilot functionality.
