Consumer Reports: Elon Musk’s Tesla Recall to Fix Autopilot Is ‘Insufficient’

Elon Musk’s Tesla has initiated a recall due to safety issues with its Autopilot system that impacts almost every EV the company has p[roduced. There’s just one problem — Consumer Reports has found the software fix “insufficient.”

Consumer Reports explains that Tesla has recently announced a recall of over two million cars, addressing concerns surrounding its Autopilot feature. This decision follows a thorough investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which revealed potential risks of drivers misusing the Autopilot system.

The investigation, which started after 11 crashes involving Tesla vehicles with Autopilot engaged, highlighted the system’s inability to sufficiently prevent drivers from using it inappropriately or in unapproved conditions. Tesla has repeatedly warned against drivers using autopilot without placing both hands on the wheel and focusing on road traffic, yet many reports claim that drivers have ignored this warning.
