It looks like Colorado residents are going to deal with another massive vehicle recall. Hopefully, this is the last one of the year. But knowing how often recalls happen now, I would not be surprised to see more.

Tesla announced they are recalling over 2 million vehicles nationwide due to a major issue with the manufacturer's autopilot system.

The Associated Press reports that 70% of Tesla crashes in 2021 were because drivers were using the autopilot feature.

Car technology is constantly evolving and changing, but I have to be honest, I do not think I will ever use autopilot. It concerns me how many crash videos I see because drivers are excited about autopilot, but end up hitting something.

What Exactly Needs to Be Updated

Tesla needs to add a major software update that will make the driver more accountable when using the autopilot feature. Drivers are getting carried away and not paying attention.

Apparently, that is the cause of the majority of the crashes.
