Tesla's Autopilot self-driving system slammed in lawsuit

Tesla's Autopilot partial self-driving system is flawed, causing cars to steer erratically when it is engaged, and the electric automaker hasn't been timely in delivering promised safety features, a lawsuit filed alleges. "Autopilot capabilities that consumers paid $5,000 extra to obtain are anything but 'safer' and 'stress-free'," alleges the lawsuit on behalf of three Tesla owners. "Many owners report the Autopilot is essentially unusable and demonstrably dangerous."
