In October, tens of thousands of Model X Teslas were recalled because the "vehicle

controller is likely to fail to detect low brake fluid and not display a warning light," reported Reuters. The total vehicle count came to 54,676.

Just two months later, Consumer Reports reported that Tesla Model X vehicles that featured autopilot, or

self-driving, capabilities were recalled and received a software update that shut off autopilot for drivers who failed to respond to warnings.

As consumer reports pointed out, the recall was aimed to prevent what occurred two years prior

when 11 Teslas crashed into first responders' vehicles while the autopilot function was engaged.
