In December, Tesla was forced to recall more than two million cars in the United States due to a defect in the Autopilot function, in what became the largest recall of the electric car giant ever.

Now, US transportation authorities have opened an investigation to see if Tesla's improvements are good enough Reuters.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an agency under the country's Department of Transportation, they have reportedly received several reports of accidents in which Tesla's Driver Assistant was used. The software must have been updated.

Recognized problem

The agency quoted Tesla as saying that car owners must activate the new program in the car themselves, and that they can easily deactivate it, which they believe represents a problem. In the past, NHTSA has asked the automaker to take additional measures to make drivers who use the Autopilot function more aware, and so they are unable to abuse it.

The massive recall concerns Models Y, X, S, 3 and Cybertruck in the US. In addition, 1.6 million cars were recalled in China due to the same problem.

Tesla admitted last December that the Autopilot function was not sufficiently secured to prevent its misuse by drivers, which could increase the risk of an accident.
