This is the 9th recall by Tesla since October, and while it doesn't sound too serious, it's the latest in an ongoing series of issues for the Austin, Texas-based car maker.

Last month, Tesla announced that they wouldn't be rolling out any new models in 2022, due to a national computer chip shortage.

According to CBS News, Tesla is recalling more than 817,000 vehicles in the United States because the seat belt reminder chimes may not sound when the vehicles are started if the driver hasn't buckled up.

Affected Vehicles

The recall affects the following models, according to documents posted by safety regulators.

  • 2021-2022 Model S sedan
  • Model X SUV
  • 2017-2022 Model 3 sedan
  • 2020-2022 Model Y SUV

Federal motor vehicle safety laws require the chimes to go off when vehicles are started, with the sound stopping when front belts are buckled.

Other Problems

CNN is reporting that some Tesla owners are complaining of their cars stopping for no reason.

This may be due to Tesla's automatic braking feature stopping the car when it doesn't need to stop, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it is currently reviewing complaints, according to CNN.

Even though automatic braking can help prevent accidents, the systems can also cause problems or even accidents if the stop doesn't need to be made.

Tesla Moving Ahead in Texas

None of the recalls seem to be slowing the company down.

Reuters is reporting Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) has applied for a permit to extend its existing Austin-based car factory to produce cathodes for battery manufacturing, according to city filings and a spokeswoman for the City of Austin's development services department.
