    Reverse actually drove car forward!

    I appreciate the answers and suggestions. I think it was an issue with "hold" and a minimal incline. Our front wheels were on gravel and rear wheels on pavement. I suspect hold did fine, but when my wife carefully pushed the accelerator, the hold mode released, but there were not enough...

    Reverse actually drove car forward!

    My wife is having no luck with our new Tesla. Today she put it in Reverse, and when she pushed the accelerator, we went forward. I was sitting next to her and could confirm that the gauge cluster said “R,” and the rear camera was displayed. When she let go of the brake, we stood still. As soon...

    FSD/AP3 for AP2.0 owners now MCU2 upgrade becoming available?

    Agreed. I was idly speculating before that they would change the camera but I've learned since then that the cameras are close to identical with only a single filter change. Same for the radar, I think, where there is only a 10ft difference. So I'm no longer concerned that the AP2.0 cameras are...

    The Tesla Model S is the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

    I also find it hard to drive rental cars when I travel. I'm getting so used to AutoPilot doing it's thing well on the highway and in heavy traffic that I assume my rental car will do the same (they don't, even if they have adaptive cruise and lane assist)

    MCU shut off every morning

    Yes - BUT my understanding is that the model 3 liquid cools the MCU and this will probably make a big difference.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Also, the end of March is the timeline for sending out invites. Really says nothing about how fast they can be schedules. It's encouraging that at least one 2.5 owner has the upgrade scheduled for _this week_. Perhaps there is a chance I could get mine updated before Summer.

    Congratulations @peteyswift! It's great to see that 2.5 upgrades are planned. Please let us know how it works out.

    I just put a 2nd deposit down and need advise....

    It's only AP2.5+ (HW2.5 and MCU2) and above that have working Sentry mode. I have HW2 and it will flash but not record anything. If you have a AP2.0+/MCU1 car then you can soon upgrade the MCU for $2500 and get sentry mode at that point. I don't disagree but I still choose to buy an AP2 car...

    The Tesla Model S is the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

    I agree. Navigate on AutoPilot is a great feature... sometimes. It does surprisingly good selecting lanes and even taking most freeway exits. I do find it too aggressive with changing lanes, especially in rush hour traffic. The car in front is doing the speed I want but slows down for 30 seconds...

    The Tesla Model S is the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

    I just picked up my S two weeks ago today. It's an astonishing car that does so many big and small features correctly. The small are things like "no start/stop button", self-presenting door handles (that make you feel welcomed) and an always-on cruise-control (no need for hitting the on/off...

    I very recently bought my Tesla and it clearly stated FSD Enabled. Any other statement simply means that the car has some version of AP2. So your car will not have FSD enabled.

    If you can post the link to Tesla CPO site for the cars and we can let you know more details.

    MCU1 S Owners: Logic FOR/AGAINST Tesla's $2,500 "Infotainment Upgrade"? (Not required for FSD)

    I don't think you will see a resale _bump_ from upgraded MCU2. I doubt the average buyer has any idea or care much about how fast the MCU is working. They just see a big screen and are happy. There might be some buyers on forums like this that would pay a little extra but they also know it's...

    2020 Updates for MCU2/AP2

    I don't think AP improved at all, and I suspect I will not see many more AP improvements until I get HW3 and it's clear that Tesla is also doing a large code restructuring that is holding up progress. I wouldn't be surprised if we take a step back before we move forward with the next few...
