Tesla Model S and Model X recall: What you need to know
Tesla has begun contacting owners of certain Model S and Model X vehicles announcing the company is recalling the cars so the touchscreen console in them can be replaced.

That problem can potentially lead to the loss of rear-view camera images and the loss of audible chimes and alerts with the vehicle’s autopilot capabilities and indicators, reports the BBC. 
Last month The Wall Street Journal estimated that the recall could cost Tesla between $300 million and $500 million to address.
