Even worse, this problem isn’t new.
Tesla drivers have been recording this particular Autopilot behavior for months — Ars Technica provided a timeline of concerned drivers whose Teslas had driven toward highway dividers as far back as last April.
In one video from April, a Tesla driver demonstrates his car’s Autopilot steering him towards a highway divider where an autopilot-enabled Tesla Model X crashed just days prior, killing its driver. Another video shared to Reddit in October corroborates those stories.
Ars Technica reached out to Tesla for comment, but did not hear back as of March 22, when it ran its story about the Autopilot errors.
