I'm not sure how many publically available responses this will generate...
I am aware (as a developer at and/or a consultant to, several companies) a number of issues that were caught late but fixed without fanfare - but I'm not at liberty to discuss in depth.
Particular areas that have come up repeatedly are to do with battery management (eg triggering thermal runaway) and motor control, both in electric/hybrid vehicles.

Subject: [SystemSafety] Looking for information about safety-critical software faults in road vehicles
Other than the "uncommanded acceleration" reports and the remote control of vehicles by researchers, can anyone give me details of safety-critical software faults discovered in road vehicle software?
I well understand that manufacturers may have corrected such faults (or
not) without a recall or publicity and that details may be very sensitive. I will give strong assurances of confidentiality - I'm just trying to understand the scale of known issues.
