Tesla recalls 475,000 cars over multiple problems


More than 475,000 Tesla cars were recalled last week due to problems with the hood on one model and the backup camera on another model.

About 120,000 Tesla Model S electric cars were recalled due to a front boot issue, according to a recall notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The problem is with the secondary latch on the Model S hood. 

On some vehicles, the backup latch is misaligned, meaning that if the primary latch fails, the hood will lift up and block the driver's view of the road. .

While the Model S problem is more dangerous, the Model 3 problem is more widespread, affecting more than 355,000 vehicles, according to the recall notice. 

The problem was found on all 2017-2020 Model 3s.

On the Model 3, the trunk cable that connects to the rear-view camera can fray after wear from opening the trunk, the notice said. 

Once it is broken, the backup camera stops working.

Tesla has a recall portal on its website where people can check to see if their vehicle is part of the recall.

The Model S problem can be fixed with realignment at a service center, according to Tesla. Meanwhile, the Model 3 requires a new cable installation. Tesla said both services will be free.
