362,000 Teslas recalled in US over fears full self-driving software may cause crashes

Tesla is recalling thousands of vehicles in the United States due to fears that their full self-driving software (FSD), could cause a crash.

The NHTSA, the country’s safety regulator, made the announcement. They have been investigating the autopilot systems of the company.

The watchdog stated that Tesla‘s software permits a vehicle to “exceed speeds limits or travel through intersectionsin a unlawful or unpredictable manner”, increasing the chance of an accident.

This recall applies to 2016-2023 Model S, Model X and Model X equipped with FSD Beta software.


At the moment, it was not clear if the alert had any implications for Tesla’s cars elsewhere in the world, including the UK.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that Tesla would release an over-the air (OTA) software upgrade, without charge.

Tesla stated that it is not aware of any deaths or injuries related to the recall issue.

“The feature could infringe on local traffic laws or customs when executing certain driving maneuvers.”

The regulator explained.

The problem could arise when you travel or turn through certain intersections at yellow traffic lights and make a lane change from certain turn-only lanes in order to continue driving straight.

“The system might not respond adequately to changes in posted speeds limits, or fail to account for driver-adjusted vehicle speed to exceed posted limits.

Tesla recalls nearly 54,000 US cars with the same software last year. This may have caused some models to slow down.

Tesla and NHTSA claim FSD’s advanced driving functions do not allow cars to drive themselves and that drivers must pay attention.
