Countless vehicles have been recalled over recent years for passenger airbag issues. The recall typically involves replacement of an airbag sensor or recalibration of the current sensor. This is done at the dealership in just a few minutes, but it's still an inconvenience to owners.

Enter Tesla and its ability to update vehicles over the air.

Trip to the dealership? Nope. Tesla will fix this issue with an over-the-air software update that was sent out starting over this past weekend.

Here's Tesla's statement on the matter sent to owners (via Teslarati):
