Tesla recalls nearly 54000 vehicles that may disobey stop signs2022-02-02 18:15 by Daniela
Tesla Inc will recall 53,822 U.S. vehicles with the company's Full Self-Driving (Beta) software that may allow some models to conduct "rolling stops" and not come to a complete stop at some intersections posing a safety risk.
The Full Self-Driving beta software is installed in certain 2016-2022 Model S and Model X, 2017-2022 Model 3 and 2020-2022 Model Y vehicles whose drivers have opted in and been approved to be testers by Tesla. A less capable version of Full Self-Driving is available in all Teslas as a $12,000 option.
Tesla released the affected firmware updated in October 2020, according to the report. Tesla representatives met with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on January 10, 2022, and January 19, 2022, to discuss the rolling-stop feature. A voluntary recall determination was made January 20, the report said.
The NHTSA is currently conducting two investigations into Tesla's software features. In August 2021, the agency began looking at Tesla crashes involving the Autopilot driver-assistance system and emergency vehicles. In December 2021, the NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation opened a second investigation into Tesla's (now disabled) "Passenger Play" feature, which allowed games to play on the infotainment screen while the car was being driven.
