Tesla has issued back-to-back recalls, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

All Tesla stores and service centers were notified about two separate recalls issued by the company, including one affecting nearly 30,000 Tesla Model X cars in model years 2021 to 2023 that have the potential for their front passenger airbag system to deploy incorrectly during certain low-speed collisions.

According to a NHTSA report, the risk can be solved with a software update free of charge for current owners of the Model X vehicle.

Vehicles in production and in pre-delivery containment received the firmware update that includes the remedy on Nov. 15, the report says.

In a separate report, another recall decision was made after the NHTSA found a combined 321,628 Model 3 vehicles in model year 2023 and Model Y vehicles in years 2020-2023 had the potential to present reduced visibility in dark conditions.
