2022-2023 Tesla Model 3 and Model Y recalled due to steering defect


More than 4000 Tesla Model Ys and Model 3s will require a software update to ensure the electric cars are compliant with Australian road rules.

Tesla has recalled 4382 examples of its 2022-2023 Tesla Model Y SUV and Model 3 sedan, citing a defect with the steering wheel operation of the two electric cars – making them non-compliant with Australian car regulations.

The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “Due to a software issue, the steering wheel may feel notchy when operating the vehicle in cold temperatures.

“There is no safety hazard and the defect will not affect the performance of the vehicle.

“Vehicles may not be compliant with the (Australian Design Rule ADR 90/01 – Steering System) 2021.”
