While beta testers are generally expected to report bugs and issues with a feature, Elon Musk didn’t appreciate a Tesla owner’s complaint about his car’s self-driving feature. The electric carmaker is set to launch its Full Self-Driving (FSD) feature as a paid service in the future and has tested it with a group of Tesla owners at their request. One of this group of beta testers complained about this feature on Twitter and said that it still needs a lot of work.
“Unfortunately, I have to say that I still have to intervene to fix #FSDBeta 10.69 in my region. There is still a lot of work to do. I know that’s probably not a popular opinion, but the focus on the ‘Chuck’ complex on the left takes precedence over the needs of some more fundamental control issues,” he tweeted.
However, the complaint was not well received by Musk who told the Tesla owner to stop complaining. “10.69 is limited for a reason. Do not ask to be included in the first beta versions and then complain,” replied the boss of Tesla.
10.69 is limited for a reason. Don’t ask to be included in early betas and then complain.

After many users asked him to apologize, Mr. Musk clarified that the Twitter user was part of Tesla’s beta testing team for the FSD function, since it was only introduced. for 1,000 cars, most of which were owned by company employees. He added that the first beta version was bound to have problems, otherwise it would be rolled out on a large scale. So the Twitter user who publicly complained about something he asked was wrong.
Tesla offered the FSD feature to the first batch of beta testers for $3,000, but has now raised prices to $12,000 for purchases made through September 5.
