Teslas with Autopilot a step closer to recall after wrecks


AP Auto Writer

DETROIT (AP) — Teslas with partially automated driving systems are a step closer to being recalled. That’s because the U.S. has elevated its investigation into a series of collisions with emergency vehicles or trucks with warning signs. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday that it’s upgrading the probe to an engineering analysis. It’s another sign of increased scrutiny of the electric vehicle maker and automated systems that perform at least some driving tasks. An engineering analysis is the final stage of an investigation, and in most cases NHTSA decides within a year if there should be a recall or the probe should be closed.
