AutoComplete: Tesla loses points with Consumer Reports
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
Tesla has yet to enable autonomous emergency braking in vehicles equipped with its latest hardware.
And Consumer Reports has taken notice.
The organization has reduced its ratings for both the Tesla Model S and Model X by two points each.
A move that lowered each vehicle in its respective segment rankings.
New Teslas haven't had the feature since last October.
But the company says auto-brake will be enabled in those vehicles starting this week by way of an over-the-air update.
So this is probably a short-term problem.
The IIHS finally got its hands on a 2010 Kia Cadenza.
And the results are quite good.
The new Sedan picked up the IIHS's Top Safety Pick+ award after it achieved a rating o good in every single crash test.
It also run praise for optional LED headlights, and autonomous emergency braking.
The Cadenza Joins about two other vehicles with Watchdog's highest safety honors.
If you use Hyundai's blue link connected car app make sure it's up to date.
The auto maker has pushed out a new mandatory update to patch two security vulnerabilities.
If left as is, the flaws could result in an attacker taking control of your vehicle remotely.
The most they could do would be to randomly unlock the doors and start the car, or maybe honk the horn, but that's about it.
To exploit the flaws, the victim's car would actually have to be connected to a malicious Wi-Fi hotspot, and that's not easy.
So the chances of this actually happening remain very low.
