The self-driving software of Tesla has been under scrutiny for quite some time now. The Autopilot system has been under the scanner of federal and California regulators who have been investigating it to detect if it has an error or not. According to a report by Bloomberg, the Federal National Traffic Safety Administration stated last month that it had reviewed almost 200 crashes involving vehicles that used the Autopilot mode.

Most recently, a report stated that the state transportation regulator in California accused Tesla of incorrectly advertising its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving as features that give autonomous electric vehicle control. California's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) stated in a complaint that Tesla misled potential buyers with an advertisement exaggerating how well its advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) functioned. The department stated, “Tesla made or disseminated statements that are untrue or misleading and not based on facts."
