Tesla is recalling 362,758 model-year 2016-2023 Model S, X, 2017-2023 Model 3, and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles equipped with Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD Beta) software or pending installation. The FSD Beta system may allow the vehicle to act unsafe around intersections, such as traveling straight through an intersection while in a turn-only lane, entering a stop sign controlled intersection without coming to a complete stop, or proceeding into an intersection during a steady yellow traffic signal without due caution. Additionally, the system may respond insufficiently to changes in posted speed limits or not adequately account for the driver’s adjustment of the vehicles’s speed to exceed posted speed limits. FSD Beta software that allows a vehicle to exceed speed limits or travel through intersections in an unlawful or unpredictable manner increases the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed by April 15, 2023. Owners may contact Tesla customer service at 877-798-3752 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, Tesla will release an over-the-air (OTA) software update.
