Do You Own a Tesla Model S, Model X, Model 3 or Model Y?
The National Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that the Full Self Driving software (FSD) was insufficient in adhering to traffic safety laws. For example, the system allowed for unsafe travel in intersections such as not coming to a complete stop or traveling straight through an intersection in a turn only lane. Tesla indicated that it was aware of 18 reports from May 8, 2019 through September 12, 2022 where the software may have caused an incident.
What are the Findings of NHTSA?
Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y have all been recalled due to the availability of the software on those vehicles. The National Traffic Safety Administration identified 273 crashes involving one of Tesla’s driving assistance programs. Tesla is not aware of any injuries or deaths resulting from a malfunction in the software.
How to Update Software of Recalled Vehicles
Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, reported that the software update can be delivered over wireless internet.
If your vehicle is included in a recall, Tesla will service the issue for free and a service appointment can be scheduled online or through their app.
