Tesla has announced that is recalling 362,758 of its EVs, including certain 2016–2023 Model S and Model X, 2017–2023 Model 3, and 2020–2023 Model Y vehicles. According to a safety recall report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD Beta) software is to blame, described as unsafe for problems that include entering a stop sign-controlled intersection without coming to a complete stop. Tesla plans to release an over-the-air software update, free to charge, to fix the issue.
Affected Tesla Models
From the official NHTSA website:
Tesla, Inc. (Tesla) is recalling certain 2016-2023 Model S, Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3, and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles equipped with Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD Beta) software or pending installation. The FSD Beta system may allow the vehicle to act unsafe around intersections, such as traveling straight through an intersection while in a turn-only lane, entering a stop sign-controlled intersection without coming to a complete stop, or proceeding into an intersection during a steady yellow traffic signal without due caution. In addition, the system may respond insufficiently to changes in posted speed limits or not adequately account for the driver’s adjustment of the vehicle’s speed to exceed posted speed limits.
