Tesla is recalling more than 362,000 vehicles with Full Self Driving software due to a crash risk at intersections. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Tesla’s Full Self-Driving software allows vehicles to exceed speed limits or travel through interactions either unlawfully or unpredictably, increasing the risk of a crash. 

The recall impacts 362,758 vehicles and includes certain 2017-2023 Model 3, 2016-2023 Model S, 2016-2023 Model X and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles. 

The FSD beta system could allow the vehicle to “act unsafe around intersections.” The recall says vehicles equipped with FSD could travel straight through an intersection while in a turn-only lane, enter a stop sign-controlled intersection without coming to a complete stop or proceed into an intersection during a steady yellow traffic signal without due caution. 

Additionally, the recall says the system may “respond insufficiently to changes in posted speed limits or not adequately account for the driver's adjustment of the vehicle's speed to exceed posted speed limits.”

Affected vehicles are expected to be fixed with an over-the-air software update and owners are expected to be notified by April 15. 

Tesla was the focus of several recalls in 2022, as concerns about its Full Self Driving software grew. Recalls are typically resolved by over-the-air software updates:
