Tesla has announced it is recalling nearly 363,000 vehicles equipped with its ‘Full Self-Driving’ system. According to the company, the recall is in response to reports of the system’s Beta software possibly causing crashes.
The recall affects 362,758 cars worldwide, including the Model S and Model X vehicles. Tesla said the issue can be fixed with an over-the-air software update.
In a statement released by the company, Tesla said it has not received any customer complaints regarding the issue. However, they are taking the precautionary measure of recalling the vehicles to ensure the safety of their customers.
The Full Self-Driving Beta software is an advanced driver assistance system that allows drivers to take their hands off the wheel and let the car drive itself. However, the software has been known to cause problems with the car’s sensors, leading to potential crashes.
Tesla has asked customers to bring their vehicles in for a software update as soon as possible. The company said they will cover all costs associated with the update.
The recall is a reminder of the importance of safety when it comes to self-driving cars. While the technology is still in its early stages, it is important for companies like Tesla to ensure the safety of their customers.
