Tesla self-driving software glitch triggers mass recall
February 17, 2023 - Tesla is to recall more than 362,000 U.S. vehicles due to a fault with its Full Self-Driving software, which can cause vehicles to exceed speed limits and increase the risk of crashing.
Tesla will recall more than 362,000 vehicles to update its Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta software after U.S. regulators said the driver assistance system could cause a vehicle to exceed speed limits or travel through intersections in an unlawful or unpredictable manner, increasing the risk of a crash.
The recall covers 2016-2023 Model S and Model X cars, 2017-2023 Model 3, and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles equipped with FSD Beta software.
The pioneering electric carmaker says it will release an over-the-air software update free of charge to rectify the problem.
The recall announcement comes two weeks before the company’s investor day, during which Elon Musk was expected to promote Tesla’s artificial intelligence capabilities.
