On November 2nd, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stated that Tesla will recall nearly 12,000 U.S. cars sold since 2017.Because of a communication error in the software update, a false forward collision warning or unexpected activation of the emergency braking system may result.Tesla announced the recall of 11,704 Model S, Model X, Model 3 and Model Y vehicles due to software updates implemented on October 23 for some fully automated driving test vehicles.
The next morning after the update, Tesla began to receive reports from customers about false forward collision warnings and automatic emergency braking incidents.This prompted the company to investigate and release new software to solve this problem.
Before the retrieval, the US NHTSA has launched an investigation into Tesla, asking its autopilot system how to monitor emergency vehicles (referring to stationary vehicles or low-speed vehicles) parked on the highway and respond to them.
For this matter,Tesla did not respond directly. Instead, it quietly released an OTA upgrade. The software update helped Tesla’s autopilot and found a stopped emergency service vehicle.
However, the improvement effect of the software may not be ideal, which may be the main reason for Tesla’s announcement of the recall.
In addition, at the end of October, Tesla announced that it would recall 2,800 Model 3 and Model Y cars.
The reason is that part of Model 3 in 2019-2021, and part of Model Y cars produced in 2020-2021,There may be a problem with the fasteners on the front suspension, which can make the vehicle in motion unstable and increase the risk of collision.
