    Tesla had 2 deaths in auto mode.. one tech ceo and a 16 year old teen in his fathers vehicle. Woth recent whistleblower news, i am going to guess both died from the batteries breaking apart and causing a fire. Some have cancelled the otders due to that accident situation. The fact is we are 30 years from these vehicles working as desired. The computers tadar system are still faulty and the computer cant determine other drivers human errors.
