‘Chief Twit’ Elon Musk’s electric vehicle company, Tesla, has busted its third vehicle recall in Australia from safety regulators in less than a month, with the latest software flaw involving about 15,900 imported Model 3 and Model Y cars this year.

“Due to a software bug, the taillights on one or both sides are not able to illuminate as intended. If this occurs during dark conditions, following traffic will have less visibility and the vehicle may not be identified said the Ministry of Motor Transport on the third recall for Teslas in just over three weeks.

The good news for Tesla owners is that the problem will be fixed with a software update, rather than a trip to the mechanic

While recalls are not uncommon – this is the 22nd in November, involving brands such as Mercedes, Toyota, Volvo, BMW and Audi – it follows a November 2 recall of 326 Tesla Model 3 cars for cars made between 2017 and 2022 in front of a problem with the seat belts caused during maintenance.

More than last week 1000 Tesla Model S and Model X sold between 2017 and 2020 were recalledd about a software issue with the Electronic Power Assist Steering system that “may result in a decrease or loss of power steering and require increased steering effort from the driver, especially at low speeds”

The problem was due to “a recently changed software calibration issue,” the Department of Transport said in its recall notice.

Again, the issue was resolved with a software upgrade.

But the irony of Tesla’s software woes wouldn’t go unnoticed by Twitter engineers, with another round of software engineer firings by the social media site’s new owner, reportedly on the eve of Thanksgiving, sending them into an e-mail. mail was informed of their dismissal that their coding was not up to scratch.

“As a result of the recent code review, your code has been determined to be non-compliant and we regret to inform you that your employment with Twitter is being terminated with immediate effect,” the email read.

About 50 engineers are believed to have been laid off. Others received performance warnings.

The sting in the tail for those engineers is that they’ve committed to staying under the “hardcore” Twitter 2.0 edict issued by Musk last week, and they’ve been given 4 weeks of severance pay. Engineers who didn’t sign up and decided to leave Twitter last week — and more than 1,000 did — will be paid until the end of January.
