On February 1, 2022, Tesla issued two recalls on their vehicles affecting approximately 80,000 Canadian vehicles. One recall was due to a “rolling stop” defect and the other was due to a faulty seatbelt chime.
While the first recall around the “rolling stop” defect only affects 68 vehicles in Canada, it affects another 54,000 in the United States. The first recall only affects vehicles in the Tesla Early Access Program with the Full Self-Driving beta program. These vehicle models are the ones affected:
The second recall regarding the faulty seatbelt chime affects 80,000 Canadian vehicles and another 800,000 vehicles in the United States. The affected models are:
For the “rolling stop” defect, the problem is that Tesla’s Full-Self Driving Beta (released in October 2021) allowed the affected vehicles to roll through stop signs without coming to a complete stop. This meant that vehicles could approach a four-way stop intersection and continue to move at up to 9km/h. This breaks laws requiring vehicles to come to a full stop at all stop signs.
The second recall is due to the seatbelt reminder chime that may not work if the driver of the vehicle hasn’t fastened his/her seatbelt. Regulations require all vehicles to have a seatbelt chime reminder if drivers or passengers haven’t fastened their seatbelts.
Luckily, neither of these defects should require sending your vehicle in to a specialist to be fixed. Instead, Tesla is set to release two firmware updates in February that will fix the problems. Owners should see an update available in their vehicle once Tesla releases the firmware.
