Transport Canada announces official recall of 9,023 Tesla Model S/X vehicles for faulty memory chips

Earlier this week the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) forced Tesla’s hand into announcing a recall of older Model S and Model X vehicles.

The recall affected approximately 135,000 vehicles in the US which would see Tesla replace the faulty 8GB memory cards with newer 64GB cards free of charge.

Today Transport Canada officially added the recall to their website, impacting 9,023 Tesla owners in the country.

The recall (# 2021-038) includes all Model S vehicles manufactured between 2012 and 2018, and all Model X vehicles built between 2016 and 2018. They describe the issue as follows:

“A rearview camera image that does not display could reduce a driver’s ability to see behind the vehicle while backing up. A windshield that cannot be defrosted/defogged could reduce visibility. Turn signals that do not work could cause a following driver not to recognize that a vehicle ahead intends to turn. These conditions could increase the risk of a crash.”

Much like the recall in the US, Transport Canada says Tesla will contact impacted owners by email when parts are available.
