OTA update triggers high frequency recalls, study shows Tesla to top 30-year recall rate

According to the latest research from iSeeCars, an automotive data analysis website, Tesla vehicles have far more recalls than other brands during their expected 30-year service life. The study was based on ten years of recall data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and was scaled to 30 years to arrive at the recall probability for each model.

It is noticed that Tesla’s five models occupied the top five positions, of which Model Y topped the list with 62.4 recalls, 15.6 times the average. It was followed by the Porsche Panamera with 61.8 recalls, 15.45 times the average. The third place is the Tesla Model 3 with 56.8 recalls, which is 14.2 times the average. The fourth and fifth places are Tesla Model X and Model S, respectively, with 27.3 and 26.4 recalls, 6.83 times and 6.6 times the average.

iSeeCars pointed out that there are two reasons for the high recall rate of Tesla vehicles. One is that Tesla vehicles can fix some issues through OTA updates, and NHTSA still treats these issues as recalls. The second is that Tesla vehicles continue to update software over time, which introduces new problems and recalls. Generally speaking, the older the vehicle, the fewer recalls it has per year, but Tesla vehicles don’t quite follow that pattern.

In addition to Tesla and Porsche, other brands that underperformed in the iSeeCars study included BMW, Jeep, Ford, Lincoln, Dodge and Volkswagen, all of which had two or more models in the top 25 most recalled list.

Conversely, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, and Toyota dominate the list of models with the fewest recalls expected over their 30-year lifetimes, with most models averaging less than one recall, and the least is the MINI Cooper Convertible version, only 0.2 recalls.
