This is Tesla’s fourth recall in two weeks, this time for 578,607 vehicles. The EV maker is set to release a firmware that will disable the feature in drive, neutral and reverse modes.
The affected vehicles are the 2020-2022 Model S, Model X, Model Y and certain 2017-22 Model 3s. The complaint was filed in January 2021, and had been under review as the electric car company was “further demonstrating and defending the tests,” the safety recall report said.
Tesla’s driver assist system Autopilot and its in-vehicle video game feature have also been under NHTSA scrutiny.
