Tesla has issued a recall for more than 11,700 cars. The recall follows a faulty software update that Tesla rolled out to its Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta program. After the update, users reported unexpected activation of the automatic emergency brakes and false forward-collision warnings.

Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta program has hit a roadblock as the company issued a recall of more than 11,700 cars over a faulty software update. The recalled vehicles include Model S, 3, X, and Y that have been on the road since 2017. The update, FSD 10.3, went live on October 23, but Tesla quickly took it down due to technical issues that were causing vehicles to raise false forward-collision warnings. Some users also reported their cars unexpectedly activating automatic emergency brakes. After taking down the update, Tesla pushed out FSD 10.3.1 to resolve the issues.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has previously asked Tesla why the company didn’t recall vehicles with a defective Autopilot system. This time around Tesla issued a recall in a bid to steer clear from additional scrutiny by the NHTSA as the agency has been formally investigating the electric car maker since August 2021. NHTSA’s probe came after repeated incidents of Tesla cars crashing into emergency service vehicles while on Autopilot.

Tesla maintains that its FSD and Autopilot features are meant to assist and not replace the driver. But this hasn’t stopped people from leaving the steering wheel unattended, resulting in multiple accidents.
