Tesla is recalling 135,000 vehicles over a touchscreen issue.
The recall applies to Model S sedans manufactured between 2012 and 2018 and Model X SUVs manufactured between 2016 and 2018.
The malfunction can cause the center touchscreen to fail, which can leave drivers without access to the backup camera as well as window defrosters and defoggers.

The company initially resisted the recall but were pressured by the NHTSA.
Tesla’s stock price has surged over the last year, enough to make founder Elon Musk surpass Amazon’s Jeff Bezos as the world’s wealthiest person.
