Influential product testing and review magazine Consumer Reports has urged Tesla Motors Inc. to deactivate its automatic steering feature and rename its AutoPilot assisted driving system.

The magazine, which has a subscriber base of over 8 million readers, indicated on Thursday that the term ‘AutoPilot’ conveys “a potentially dangerous assumption” that the vehicle has self-driving capabilities.

Laura MacCleery, vice president of consumer policy and mobilization for Consumer Reports, said that “Tesla gives consumers a false sense of security… we’re deeply concerned that consumers are being sold a pile of promises about unproven technology.”

Tesla responded to the magazine, acknowledging that while it understood the advice to be well-intended, it would make its decisions “on the basis of real-world data, not speculation by media.”
