NHTSA Investigates Model S Touchscreens


NHTSA is proving Model S touchscreen failures. Do you think this may result in a massive recall?

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Tuesday it had opened an investigation into 63,000 Tesla Model S cars after reports of media control unit failures that led to loss of the use of a touchscreen.

There were 11 complaints about Tesla Model S touchscreen failures which draw the attention of NHTSA, resulting in a Model S touchscreen probe.

NHTSA says in documents, posted today, on Wednesday June 24, 2020, that it's investigating failures in the 2012 through 2015 Tesla Model S.
