Tesla is not getting out of serious trouble, again, an investigation has been started by the US government. The reason for this review is, of course, as you can imagine, this feature of Tesla does not work properly.

The crisis that has emerged now in Tesla is a feature included in the autonomous driving mode of the vehicle. According to the news, many users; Tesla complains about the unbalanced operation of the automatic brake systems of the vehicles.

416,000 Tesla vehicles will be examined
What led to an investigation involving 416,000 Tesla Model Y and Model 3 vehicles was that 354 complaints were received regarding the automatic brake feature in the past 9 months. What users are complaining about is that Tesla vehicles suddenly brake themselves in the middle of the road while in autonomous mode.
According to the report published by the USA’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), no accident, injury or death has yet occurred due to this reason. Other explanations made in particular in the report are as follows;
“Complaints state that the vehicle unexpectedly brakes on the highway while using its autonomous features, including adaptive cruise control.

For this reason, Tesla, the world’s largest automotive company, has had a lot of headaches with the other three investigations in recent days; It would not be wrong to say that it will continue to hurt.
