A Tesla Model S driver involved in a recent crash in Texas is warning other drivers that the company’s Autopilot technology is “not ready.” Mark Molthan survived the crash but suffered some serious injuries. However, he doesn’t have any ill will towards the company.

Tesla safety features are good, but need research

Molthan credits the car’s safety features with saving his life. He told CNBC, “I didn’t miss a day of work,” and had it been “my pickup truck, I might have been dead.” Molthan has owned three Teslas: two Model S cars and a Model X.

He strongly feels that the company needs to address the safety issues around the driver assistance technology, and only then would he buy another Tesla. He added that the company does not spend enough time researching new features and products and is in a haste to bring them to the market.
