Occurred: November 2021
Tesla has been forced to issue a US recall (pdf) for a glitch in its Full Self-Driving system. The recall affects over 11,700 vehicles.
Tesla uninstalled FSD 10.3 following driver reports of inadvertent activation of their cars' automatic emergency braking system, and says it is unaware of any crashes resulting from the glitches.
Tesla’s FSD Beta testing programme has attracted criticism for attempting to stifle untrained test drivers with non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).
