Man Says Tesla Car Started And Crashed On Its Own

Okay, let's just say this guy is lying and we totally believe Tesla's version of events. That would mean that, best case scenario, this is an example of Tesla's self-parking feature in action. Nailed it (literally)! big grin

"Tesla has reviewed the vehicle’s logs, which show that the incident occurred as a result of the driver not being properly attentive to the vehicle’s surroundings while using the Summon feature or maintaining responsibility for safely controlling the vehicle at all times," the letter signed by a regional service manager read. The letter said the Summon feature آ— which enables a Tesla vehicle to park itself, among other functions آ— "was initiated by a double-press of the gear selector stalk button, shifting from Drive to Park and requesting Summon activation."
