A new feature for Tesla cars that allows drivers to remotely summon their parked autos is drawing scrutiny from government regulators after reports of malfunctioning software.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in a statement issued Wednesday, said that is aware of the reports that “Smart Summon” does not always work as promised and is in ongoing contact with the company.
But the agency did not open a formal investigation.
“The agency will not hesitate to act if it finds evidence of a safety-related defect,” the statement read as quoted by Reuters.
