Tesla Inc. recalled more than 11,700 cars after a software update was found to increase the risk its so-called Full Self-Driving system could cause rear-end collisions.

No accidents have been reported, Tesla told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Tesla has released a free over-the-air software update to fix the issue and is going to send letters to the owners.
