Tesla Recalls Vehicles With Full Self-Driving

Feb. 17, 2023

The NHTSA has called for Tesla to recall their vehicles with Full Self-Driving. 

Feb. 17, 2023–Tesla has recalled 363,000 vehicles equipped with the “Full Self-Driving” system advertised by the company, at the behest of U.S. safety regulators, citing that “it misbehaves around intersections and doesn’t always follow speed limits,” AP News reports.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has been investigating Tesla’s automated software since June 2016, when a driver using the Autopilot function was killed. Several more incidents have occurred since, resulting in several investigations from the NHTSA.

The FSD system is currently in beta and is being used by as many as 400,000 drivers. In tests done by the NHTSA on the software, they found that it posed dangers such as “traveling straight through an intersection while in a turn-only lane, failing to come to a complete stop at stop signs, or going through an intersection during a yellow traffic light without proper caution.”

NHTSA had several discussions with Tesla, and on February 7 the automaker finally decided to do a recall of vehicles containing the software, while also claiming they were “not concurring with the agency’s analysis.”

Following the recall, Musk voiced outrage on his recently-purchased platform Twitter, saying that to call it a recall was “anachronistic and just flat wrong!”
