According to reports, Tesla is expected to recall about 158,000 cars after a media-console issue was raised.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently sent a letter to Elon Musk‘s electric vehicle and clean energy company requesting the recall. The letter notes that the issue with the touchscreen display could result in an increased risk of crashes for Model S cars made from 2012 through 2018, and Model X SUVs from 2016 through 2018.

The problematic media-consoles use an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and integrated 8G flash memory that fills a portion of storage each time a car is started. With five to six years, the storage capacity becomes full causing the touchscreen display to stop working. The faulty display affects access to the rear-view camera, essential functions and even the autopilot.

The NHTSA says that Tesla has been remedying the issue with updates that have not gotten rid of the safety issue. The safety administration has asked Tesla to either recall the cars or issue a statement informing owners of the problem.

Tesla is expected to respond to the letter before or on January 27.

In case you missed it, Lucid Motors is reportedly planning to go public via a $15 billion USD merger.
