Looks like Mr Musk let the eye run off the ball as regards electronic component quality. Don't think its wear out...more like material degradation as a chemical change function. Wear out will do though. Is a US Govt investigation but....Tesla is not legally obliged to action. . So its not a safety issue then, just a Customer Con...?

Worn-out NAND flash blamed for Tesla vehicle gremlins, such as rear view cam failures and silenced audio alerts.

Summary:
On June 22, 2020, the Office of Defects Investigations (ODI) opened Preliminary Evaluation PE20-010 to investigate
incidents of media control unit (MCU) failures resulting in loss of rearview camera in model year (MY) 2012-2015
Tesla Model S vehicles equipped with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with an integrated 8GB eMMC NAND flash
memory device. EMMC NAND flash devices have a finite lifespan based upon the number of program/erase (P/E)
cycles. The subject MCU allegedly fails prematurely due to memory wear-out of the eMMC NAND flash. Tesla used
the same MCU with the Tegra 3 processor in approximately 159 thousand 2012-2018 Model S and 2016-2018 Model
X vehicles built by Tesla through early-2018. In response to ODI's Information Request (IR) for PE20-010, Tesla
provided ODI with 2,399 complaints and field reports, 7,777 warranty claims, and 4,746 non-warranty claims related to
MCU replacements. The data show failure rates over 30 percent in certain build months and accelerating failure trends
after 3 to 4 years-in-service.
