More than 120000! Tesla recalls again on a large scale

AutoBeta( Report--

Recently, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the side door of the vehicle may be unlocked in the event of a collision, increasing the risk of injury to passengers. Tesla recalled 120423 cars in the United States, including the 2021-2023 Model S and X models, and officials said they would make free software updates via OTA.

It is worth noting that this is the second large-scale recall of Tesla in the United States this month. According to the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 2.03 million vehicles were recalled in the United States because the autopilot control system was insufficient to prevent misoperation, including the 2012-2023 Model S, the 2016-2023 Model X, the 2017-2023 Model 3 and the 2020-2023 Model Y. It is understood that the recall almost covers Tesla's models in the United States that are equipped with FSD Beta (fully autonomous driving) software.

A spokesman for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in response to the recall of insufficient autopilot control that the investigation found that fully autopilot could not ensure that drivers could always maintain sufficient attention when the system started autopilot, and that there were safety risks. At the same time, there are examples that the FSD Beta version may cause vehicles to do unsafe behavior near intersections, such as going straight in lanes that can only turn or not completely stopping at intersections where complete parking is required. In the follow-up, Tesla will solve the problem of autopilot system by means of software upgrade.

In fact, Tesla's FSD function has been controversial in recent years. Tesla has been recalled many times in the American market because of this function. In February this year, the system may not be able to fully respond to changes in the speed limit, or can not fully take into account the driver's adjustment to the speed of the vehicle so as to overspeed, increasing the risk of vehicle collision. Tesla recalled 362758 vehicles in the United States, including 2016-2023 Model X models manufactured in part from September 9, 2016 to January 9, 2023, 2016-2023 Model S models produced from November 9, 2016 to January 15, 2023, and 2017-2023 Model 3 models produced from July 16, 2017 to January 18, 2023. 2020-2023 Model Y models produced from January 13, 2020 to January 31, 2023.

According to the recall report, the FSD Beta system may allow vehicles to engage in unsafe behavior around intersections, such as not stopping completely when entering intersections controlled by stop signs, or entering intersections where it is not advisable to enter, and not paying due attention to yellow traffic lights.

Relevant data show that Tesla's autopilot system Autopilot was launched in 2014, and in 2020 Tesla launched FSD advanced fully autopilot. The system can realize a full set of driving operations, such as automatic complete lane change, entry and exit highway, identification of traffic lights and traffic signs, and parking. After the launch, Tesla also provided tests to many car owners, who can choose to pay an one-time payment of 15000 US dollars or a monthly subscription fee of 199US dollars. However, it should be noted that whether it is the previous Autopilot or the current FSD, or the ADAS (Advanced Auxiliary driving), which belongs to the L2 + level, it is not literally fully self-driving, or requires the driver to maintain full focus, put his hands on the steering wheel and be ready to take over the vehicle.

Back to the recall of Tesla in the United States again, from the number of two recalls in December, the scale is very large. Although the recall of vehicles and the update of OTA software for vehicles reflect the responsible attitude of the car companies. However, too frequent and large-scale recalls will also make consumers question the quality of products and have a negative impact on the reputation of the brand.
