Electric vehicle (EV) maker Tesla announced on Thursday it was issuing a voluntary recall for cars that use its experimental driver-assistance software, better known as autopilot, APA reports citing Sputnik.

According to a notice that appeared on the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSA) website, the Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD Beta) can cause vehicle crashes by allowing vehicles to “act unsafe around intersections, such as traveling straight through an intersection while in a turn-only lane, entering a stop sign-controlled intersection without coming to a complete stop, or proceeding into an intersection during a steady yellow traffic signal without due caution.”

The recall affects Model S sedans made from 2016 to 2023; Model Y sedans made from 2017 to 2023; Model X sport utility vehicles made from 2017 to 2023; and Model Y SUVs made between 2020 and 2023 that have been equipped with or pending installation of FSD Beta. In all, 362,758 vehicles are affected - about 43% of all Teslas on US roads.

According to the notice, Tesla will “release an over-the-air (OTA) software update, free of charge.”
