Tesla cars fix radio fault

Tesla, the car company named after the first inventor of radio, shamefully removed terrestrial radio reception from its Model 2 series, but it has fixed its error in its latest model.

Car owners unfortunate enough to have bought earlier models found that an upgrade earlier this year killed reception of their free to air AM, FM, (Europe) DAB and (USA) Sirius radios.

That fault can now be fixed, although owners will have to pay about AUD$800 for the privilege of getting back something that came with their car originally.

This situation only affects owners who bought a Model S or Model X before March 2018 who decided to upgrade, and does not affect the newer Model 3, which apparently has respected the name of Tesla and kept terrestrial radio reception available in the car.
