New Tesla Recall Is Due to ‘Full Self-Driving’ Software Running Stop Signs
Tesla is recalling nearly 54,000 vehicles because their "full self-driving" software lets them roll through stop signs without coming to a complete halt.
Documents posted Tuesday, February 1st, 2022 by U.S. safety regulators say that Tesla will disable the feature with an over-the-internet software update. The software allows vehicles to go through intersections with all-way stop signs at up to 5.6 miles per hour. Disregarding stop signs is illegal in most states.
The recall covers Model S sedans and X SUVs from 2016 through 2022, as well as 2017 to 2022 Model 3 sedans and 2020 through 2022 Model Y SUVs.
Tesla says it has no reports of crashes or injuries.
