Tesla launched the voluntary recall ”out of an abundance of caution” after discussions with NHTSA. Affected vehicles include 2016-2023 Model S and Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3 and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles equipped with FSD or awaiting installation of the feature Tesla recall Reddit.
The test was conducted as part of an ongoing investigation that began on June 8, 2022, in response to several instances of Tesla vehicles driving on autopilot and hitting emergency . Autopilot is Tesla’s basic driver assistance system; FSD builds on that by adding features like automatic overtaking Tesla recall Reddit.
Tesla also advertises that FSD can respond to traffic lights and stop signs, but in a recall notice posted on its website, NHTSA said the system could allow vehicles to enter stop-sign-controlled intersections without stopping, proceed through solid yellow lights ”without due care” and continue straight through an intersection from a turn-only lane. Note that Tesla previously recalled nearly 54,000 vehicles in 2022 because FSDs were found not to obey stop signs.
The automaker will release an OTA software update for free as a fix. While this won’t require a visit to a service center, Tesla will send formal notices by April 15.
According to the New York Times, NHTSA is investigating 41 crashes involving FSD and Autopilot that have resulted in 19 deaths. For its part, Tesla has identified warranty claims in connection with the problem.
CEO Elon Musk has claimed that software updates would unlock true self-driving capabilities, saying at the time that he expected a Tesla to be able to travel from Los Angeles to New York ”without the need for a single touch ” off the wheel as soon as 2017.

This practice is now coming under more scrutiny from regulators. Last month, Tesla was sued by the Justice Department over FSD, although the company said it was not aware of any ongoing investigation.
