Tesla is reportedly recalling almost all of the vehicles it sold in the US due to some of the warning lights on the instrument panel being too small.
The recall of a staggering 2.2 million vehicles announced on Friday Feb. 2 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is considered as a sign of stepped-up scrutiny of the giant electric vehicle company. The agency has also claimed that it has upgraded a 2023 investigation into Tesla.
According to documents, the update will increase warnings and alerts to drivers. The agency further states that the brake, park, and anti-lock brake warning lights have a smaller font size than the one required to adhere to by federal safety standards. This could lead to unreadable critical information that is hard to read, increasing the risk of a crash.
