Tesla Auto-Brake Might Not Function as Advertised E-mail
June 05, 2017

Some 2016 and all 2017 Tesla S and X models might not be equipped with a functional Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) safety feature, which is supposed to be standard and operable up to 90 mph. AEB is a "collusion avoidance assist" feature that automatically engages the brakes to reduce the impact of an unavoidable front-end collision.  The problem may effect all S and X models that were produced between October 19, 2016 and now.  In April 2017, Telsa offered a software update for the S models, but the AEB feature allegedly worked only if vehicles were traveling at about 28 mph or slower.  Had drivers known that the AEB feature was inoperable, they may not have purchased the vehicle or may have paid significantly less for it, especially since Consumer Reports downgraded Tesla's ratings once the problem was discovered.
