Recall Alert: Tesla 2.0, 2.5 Roadster
Electric sports carmaker Tesla is recalling 439 of its latest Roadster models due to a potentially defective low-voltage cable. The 12-volt auxiliary cable could lose power, which would impact systems including headlights, taillights, turn signals, hazard lights and airbags. The recall was initiated after the cable caused a short in a vehicle, leading to a fire.
The models involved in the recall are the Roadster 2.0 and 2.5. The Roadster 1.5 is not included in the recall.
Tesla has reported the recall to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and begun contacting customers. The fix will include inspecting the cable’s routing and adding a protective sleeve over it.
Customers can contact their Tesla dealer for more information.
