Tesla has been forced to ‘recall’ all vehicles equipped with Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta as NHTSA believes it may cause crashes.
The fix is a software update.
In a recall notice released today, NHTSA has notified that Tesla has agreed to “recall” all 362,758 vehicles equipped with FSD Beta in the US over what it believes is a serious risk that it “may cause crashes”.
Here’s the recall notice summary from NHTSA:
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.
