What a misleading title is that?

With that description we should call "recall" every time a company sends a patch to an operating system. People will think then that they will need to bring in their computers to some store for a physical check and service.

Most of the other car companies cannot upgrade their cars over the internet and even if it is something that can be fixed with a software upgrade it will require the clients to bring in the cars to a service store, that is a recall.

Although Tesla will just send an upgrade version which will be updated by just log in online. This is not a recall, stop misleading people. Call it how it is.

The title should be "Tesla will send an update over the net to over 2 million vehicles to fix defective system that monitors drivers using Autopilot".

Another rousing success by St. Elon!

No recalls. A software update.

I quite like the idea of a recall, with all Teslas driving themselves back to Musk Inc. to be fixed, like cattle going back to the farm to be milked.

I guess if you break a traffic law, the police could just type in your registration and your Tesla would lock you in and drive you to the local police station. No need for 'hot pursuit' any more.
