ELON MUSK’S Tesla needs to recall nearly half a million cars due to safety issues.
The automaker wants to recall 475,000 of its Model 3 and Model S electric vehicles in the United States.
Musk’s car brand is recalling vehicles to fix problems with their rearview cameras and trunks.
According to the US road safety regulator, the problems increase the risk of a crash.
Tesla is recalling 356,309 Model 3 2017-2020 vehicles.
It also needed to repair 119,009 Model S vehicles.
The problem with the Model 3 sedan is that “the rearview camera cable may be damaged by opening and closing the trunk lid, rendering the rearview camera image invisible,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said.
The recalled Model S vehicles are said to have a problem with the front roof latch that results in the trunk opening without warning.
This can obstruct the driver’s view and cause them to crash.
Tesla is said to be unaware of any accidents, injuries or deaths caused by Model 3 and Model S vehicles.
NHTSA is investigating Musk’s company.
Earlier this month, a taxi company in Paris stopped using a Tesla Model 3 after a collision that left one person dead and 20 others injured.
