- The petition was filed in November of 2020 and included complaints about the car executing a perfect 90 degree turn by itself if the driver took their hands off the wheel.
- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigation will cover the 2013-2015 model years, which is over 1,120,000 cars in the USA.
- Interestingly, NHTSA has opted to skip the standard preliminary investigation and jump straight into the more intense engineering analysis phase.
