Summary of Complaint

On open freeway, I 76 between 7 am and 8 am Tuesday November 16, between Ogdallala NE and Brush CO. Using adaptive cruise control with autopilot steering (as well as without autosteer), multiple episodes of severe "phantom breaking" where the car slams on the breaks for no apparent reason. No other cars around. Flat, clear open freeway. Reported the issue to Tesla service. Even though there were multiple (>10 episodes in one hour) they have demanded to know the exact time stamp. I was able to give time within 1 hour period, vehicle location. Service says if there is a hardware issue they will look at it. If it is "firmware" it will need to wait for a firm ware update. This is dangerous. What if the car slams on the breaks at 80mph, with someone following close behind? You might be rearended. Really serious safety issue. My car has latest FSD beta 10.4. This is much worse than before this "upgrade"

Summary of Complaint

I installed the Full Self-Driving Beta on my Tesla Model Y the morning of 10/24/2021. Immediately after the update installed I began experiencing issues with the Autopilot and TACC systems, as well as spurious forward collision warnings. These warnings involved the standard warning beeps and red indicators on the driving display, and at one point included an unnecessary emergency braking incident when no obstacle was in front of me. As such, I had reverted to driving the car in manual mode, not on autopilot, but left the option to use the autopilot systems and associated safety features enabled. I was driving in full manual mode on an interstate in the left lane approaching a tunnel, with no vehicles or obstacles in front of me. The car indicated a forward collision warning with the loud beeps, and the car applied brakes and started to swerve into the lane immediately to my right, in which another vehicle was driving and had to swerve as well. The car detected the event and saved the camera footage to my installed SSD. I have reported the incident to Tesla, including providing the video of the incident. I am awaiting response from Tesla.

Summary of Complaint

I put the car into the Parking mode to back into a stall between two cars. The car backed into a shopping cart at the rear of the car to my left. There was a woman putting groceries into her trunk standing next to the shopping cart. I was able to stop the car before any damage to the cart or my car. The woman was never in danger of being hit. I asked the TESLA service department to check out the sensors but the said that there was nothing wrong with the car and refused to check out the sensors unless I paid to have the check them out. They also refused to make a report of the issue. They said that the sensors "probably" saw through the cart and that it was my responsibility to make sure that the auto-park worked properly.

Summary of Complaint

The car suddenly picked up the speed in the parking lot, went over the car stopper, curb and hit the Tree. The airbags never got activated, OR the sensors were nonfunctional. I received a call in less than 1 minute from Tesla Roadside if I was safe. Paramedics took me to the ER by 911. I had some injuries because of a malfunction of airbags, brakes, and warning systems. The car is towed to the nearby Tesla-approved repair place. I am somewhat concerned about the cause, and I believe Tesla knew what had malfunctioned in their car. I have been a safe driver without traffic tickets and accidents ever in the last 45 years.

Summary of Complaint

Backup camera appeared in on screen window as usual when I put the car in reverse to back into my parking spot. The camera looked clear and trajectory lines moved appropriately when I turned the steering wheel. However, main backup view in center of screen did not update as I moved the vehicle backward, it remained on a static, still frame of video. I reversed into a low fence post that I knew was behind me somewhere but could not be seen when looking out the rear window or using any of the mirrors. I usually look to the backup camera to show me where this post is and help back up close to it. There is a large blind spot behind this model of car that is well covered by the camera, but now that is has happened to me I have found many reports of the issue happening to others.

VIN: 5yjygdee1lf****

Summary of Complaint

The car accelerates on its own, twice in last two weeks. First time was at a intersection, I applied accelerator pedal after the light turned green, with normal pressure. The car sped up unexpectedly and I had to immediately apply brake to slow it down. The second time I put it in reversal and as soon as I applied accelerator it jerked and sped up unexpectedly. Luckily both time the acceleration occurred when car were in slow speed and applying brake stopped acceleration. it also occurred twice before these recent two incidents since we bought the car 10 month ago but they happened far apart in time and we were not sure of its occurance. But the frequency with which the unexpected acceleration happens has become alarming and we become more sure of the certainty. I start to worry about what would happen if this occurs when the car is moving at high speed and whether applying brakes can be effective to correct the acceleration.

Summary of Complaint

My wife and I drove into a parking lot in a strip mall located at 1301 IL Route 59 to park the car. I was driving very slow at 5 miles an hour. As I pulled into a parking spot facing IL Route 59 which is a three lane highway, the vehicle malfunctioned causing it to uncontrollably accelerate. I was not able to control the car as it jumped the curb of the parking lot and went through the grass on the side of the roadway towards IL Route 59. To avoid driving onto IL Route 59 I was able to steer the car right and struck an AT&T telephone box which brought the car to a halt. Police arrived on the scene to check the status of the accident. A police complaint has been filed. Police did not issue a citation to me as this was not my fault and there was clearly a defect in the car that caused this accident. Luckily my wife and I were not injured and the car was towed to a body shop for repair. I called Tesla customer support and they said that they would review the car diagnostics to determine the problem. There were no warnings, symptoms or messages to indicate this behavior by the car. It just accelerated in its own. Please see attached documents for more information.

Summary of Complaint

tail lights on both sides constantly fill with condensation blocking the visibility to drivers behind me. I have reported the problem to Tesla but they keep saying it's within specs. the manufacture is only looking at pictures to make the judgment and not actually allowing me to come in to correct the problem. I have two model Y's and they are having the same problem.

2 weeks back one of the rear passenger seat belts stopped latching to the seat buckle. I filed a service request with Tesla and scheduled a service appointment. They have rescheduled the appointment twice already and they haven't addressed the issue as the necessary parts are not yet available. I don't understand how to safely use the car with children if the seat belts are not working.

Summary of Complaint

The trunk hatch door does not stop moving (opening or closing) when it comes into contact with an object. Incident #1: I closed the trunk not realizing that my husband was under the hatch door. The hatch door came down on his head and did not stop closing until he forced it to stop with his arm. Incident #2: I pulled the car into my garage but did not realize that I had not pulled the car far enough into the garage. I opened the trunk from the drivers seat. The hatch door hit the closed garage door and kept trying to open (scratching the hatch door on the garage door in the process) until I was able to pull the hatch door down hard enough for it to stop moving. This is a safety hazard. A child/person could get caught and injured in between the hatch door and the trunk and/or the hatch door and another object.

Summary of Complaint

I was driving East on May 7, 2021, on I-94 toward New Buffalo, MI, on a clear day; no rain. A semi-truck was going 60 mph in the center lane of three lanes. I moved to the left lane to pass as I was going about 70 mph, the posted speed limit. There were no cars ahead of me in my lane for as far as I could see. Another car pulled up behind me very close—way too close—tailgating me. I was passing the truck and was parallel to the truck when suddenly the Tesla automatically slammed on my brakes!!! The idiot who was tailgating me fortunately reacted quickly and also slammed on his brakes and simultaneously swerved hard left onto the shoulder—thereby averting what could have been a fatal accident!! My car could have been pushed into the wheels of the truck on my right and we could have been killed!! I was badly shaken but, fortunately, we were not injured and there was no crash. When we arrived at our destination I phoned the salesman at the Chicago Tesla sales office and described the incident. I asked him if I could disable the automatic braking feature and he talked me through the procedure. The Tesla has a rear-facing video camera. I believe Tesla should program that camera to see a tailgating car and make certain that no automatic braking be engaged if a car is following too close!! I believe Tesla should investigate why this happened and should reprogram the software yo prevent it from happening again. I sent the Tesla Company two electronic messages through the Tesla Phone App as the Tesla salesman suggested, but I have not received any response more than one week later. This is irresponsible!! We could have been killed yet Tesla has ignored my two messages! If Tesla does not fix this problem, it is certain that people will die in a parallel situation. We were just very lucky.
