The FSD Beta recall covers certain 2016-2023 Model S, Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3, and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles equipped with the automaker's Autosteer on City Streets feature, known as "Full Self-Driving Beta" or "FSD Beta." ".

According to NHTSA, an FSD Beta fault could cause a vehicle to exceed speed limits on inner city roads.

It may also cause vehicles to travel through intersections illegally or unexpectedly. These tendencies may increase the cause of accidents.

The official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website said: “The FSD Beta system may allow a vehicle to behave unsafely around intersections, such as traveling straight through an intersection while in a turning lane only, or entering a stop-sign controlled intersection without stopping completely or proceeding at an intersection during a steady yellow traffic light without using caution. In addition, the system may respond inadequately to changes in the posted speed limits or not sufficiently take into account a driver's adjustment of the vehicle speed to exceed the posted speed limits."

According to NHTSA's safety recall report, Tesla contacted the agency about a potential issue related to the FSD Beta in late January.

NHTSA advised the company to file a recall notice.

Tesla and NHTSA then met several times to discuss the agency's concerns, as well as over-the-air software improvements that the electric carmaker had proposed to address the issue.

On February 7, despite not agreeing with the agency's analysis, Tesla made a voluntary recall anyway out of an abundance of caution.

There are no injuries or deaths associated with the potential problem.
