Electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla is recalling all 2.19 million vehicles it has sold to address a surprising issue – the font size of its braking system warning.

The font size for the brake, park, and antilock brake system (ABS) warning lights was found to be smaller than the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) requirement of 3.2 millimeters.

The recall covers various Tesla models, including the Tesla Model 3 2017-2023, Tesla Model S 2012-2023, Tesla Model X 2016-2024, Tesla Model Y 2019-2024, and the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck 2024.

The company plans to fix the font size with a software update that Tesla typically uses for such fixes.

This is the second time in recent months that Tesla has been required to release a software update for its entire fleet of vehicles. Last December, the company was forced to release an update to fix a number of issues with the Autopilot system, including a lack of adequate warnings.

Additionally, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is intensifying its investigation into Tesla's power steering loss issues, indicating potential future recalls.
