Tesla is recalling all vehicles equipped with fully autonomous driving (FSD) software. A complete of 362,000 units.

Tesla’s fully self-driving automotive commercial has been criticized for being false and exaggerated. Even recently, an commercial criticizing Tesla’s fully autonomous driving was aired on TV commercials for the Super Bowl, the ultimate round of the American Skilled Football (NFL), which is rumored to be the costliest on this planet, and have become a hot topic.

Accordingly, plainly the U.S. transportation authorities judged the Tesla FSD software to be dangerous and commenced to manage it.

On this regard, Reuters requested a recall on the sixteenth (local time) after the US Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determined that Tesla’s self-driving automotive software caused the vehicle to exceed the speed limit or increase the chance of a crash when passing through an intersection. Reportedly, Tesla accepted this and decided to recall 362,000 vehicles.

The recall affects 2016-2023 Model S and Model X vehicles, 2017-2023 Model 3, and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles that had FSD beta software installed or withheld installation.

U.S. Senators Ed Markey and Richard Blumenthal said, “It has been an extended time since a call was made on a recall,” and “Tesla must now stop exaggerating the actual performance of its vehicles.”

The U.S. transportation authority’s recall request is in truth an evaluation that the FSD function that Tesla has been promoting to this point is definitely an unfinished product with significant defects.

NHTSA can also be investigating 830,000 vehicles equipped with Autopilot, Tesla’s driver assistance system, in reference to a parked vehicle crash that occurred in 2021. Tesla vehicles are examining whether or not they adequately ensure driver attention.

In December of last yr, NHTSA also launched two recent special investigations involving Tesla vehicles, including an eight-vehicle crash on the Bay Bridge in San Francisco.
