Transport Canada announces recall of more than 2,000 Teslas due to poor heating effect

Recently, Transport Canada announced the recall of 2,084 Tesla Model 3/Y/S units. This is because many people complained to the department that their Tesla heating capacity was faulty. Window defrosting is ineffective.

As of February 1, 2022, Transport Canada has received 171 complaints about the problem, which appear to have come from Model Y and Model 3 owners.

The agency launched a “problem assessment” investigation in early January after receiving six related complaints. Transport Canada said the issue only affects Tesla models with firmware update versions 2021.44 to 2021.44.30.6.

Transport Canada followed shortly after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recalled some Tesla vehicles overheating problems. In fact, NHTSA announced the recall a day before the department officially announced the recall on February 3, 2022.

Many Tesla Model 3 and Model Y owners who live in cold environments report that the lack of heat in their vehicles is dangerous. Tesla insists that this may be due to a bug with a software update, though the brand’s OTA updates to address such issues have largely been ineffective.

Similar to NHTSA’s recall, Transport Canada considers the heating issue a safety issue because it makes it difficult for vehicles to defrost windshields quickly. While the lack of heat is often very dangerous in cold environments, it’s a more pressing concern because of frost that affects driving visibility.

So Transport Canada is recalling more than 2,000 Teslas sold locally, including Model 3 and Model Y from 2021 to 2022, and Model S from 2020 to 2022, because reduced visibility could increase the risk of crashes. .
