Tesla recalls Model 3 in Israel due to air conditioner fault

Tesla initiated a preventative action recall on all Model 3’s in Israel manufactured in China. The vehicles in question have a fault with the air conditioners.

As per Tesla, the service involves encasing or replacing a pipe in the air conditioning system that was faulty. The repair is not done in a garage or Tesla Service Center, but rather, a Tesla service vehicle will undertake the work at the owners home or in a location of their choice. The job only takes a couple of minutes.

The company discovered the problem with the air conditioner back in July. The Tesla Service Garage dealt with a couple of breakdowns and other issues due to the air conditioning fault. The fault only affects Model 3’s shipped from Giga Shanghai. The fault does not affect any other models at this time.

Tesla has continued to update vehicles in Israel to solve some of the limitations in the country. For instance, the company updated cars to support a virtual keyboard in Hebrew, but the entire menu is not entirely Hebrew, reports Globes.
