According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Tesla recalled 602006 U.S. cars, most of which are because of the previous “Boombox” function problems.
The recall includes a total of 594,700 Model S/X/Y produced between 2020-2022 and Model 3 produced between 2017 and 2022, as well as 7289 Model X vehicles produced between 2021-and 2022, both of which will be completed through OTA updates.

Tesla said in government documents that if owners use a feature that allows them to “summon” vehicles at low speeds, the new recall will disable “Boombox.” It is worth mentioning that in the February recall this year, Tesla disabled the “Boombox” when driving, neutral, or reversing.
In simple terms, “Boombox” allows drivers to play system presets or custom sounds while the vehicle is moving, such as the sheep call of “Boombox”. This violates U.S. federal safety standards, which require electric vehicles to emit a warning tone to pedestrians, whereas normally electric vehicles make little noise while driving.
