hungryhungryhorus: TuteTibiImperes: MaudlinMutantMollusk: The cars were not recalled.


It sounds like they recalled the chargers and not the cars themselves, but that is splitting hairs a bit.
Still, recalls happen with every make and nearly every model of automobile.

Not even.
FTA:  The recall, which Tesla is fixing by software updates sent electronically to customers
You know, like how Microsoft recalls your operating system on the second Tuesday of every month...

Except that this is actually, you know, a recall, initiated by Tesla.  Tesla is sending out a "Recall" Service Bulletin to the owners to let them know what's going on.

"While the number of incidents remains small, and Tesla's review to date points to
the building receptacle or wiring as the primary cause of failed NEMA 14-50 adapters, the
Company has determined that a voluntary recall is appropriate as a precautionary measure." N N-14V006-9349.pdf

Since I've already mentioned the Nissan recall above that is simply a sticker sent in the mail, I'll now mention that the recall for the GM trucks (risk of fire!) is, gasp, a *software update*. Nothing more, or less.

Cletus C.: They hate the word "recall," unlike other car companies, I suppose.

They hate the word "recall" because it was an issue fixed by an over the air software update.

Well, only if by recall, you mean "over the air software update". t- exactly/
