Tesla Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y Recalled for "Rolling Stop" Software Defect

Tesla Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y Recalled for “Rolling Stop” Software Defect

Tesla is recalling certain Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y vehicles for functionality available as part of the Full Self-Driving (Beta) software.

The Problem

Documents released by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration detail that certain Tesla models with the “rolling stop” feature may allow the vehicle to travel through an all-way stop intersection without first coming to a stop.

Failure to stop at a stop sign not only increases risks of crashing, but may have serious consequences for both vehicle occupants and and other drivers on the road.

Tesla’s “rolling stop” feature is available as part of the Full Self-Driving (Beta) software.

The Fix

Tesla will perform an over-the-air (OTA) software update that disables the “rolling stop” functionality. This recall fix is at no cost to the owner.
