    Blind Spot Assist - Never noticed this

    “Blind Spot Assist” is a made up term but a very real feature I never noticed. Apparently only arrived with the updated driving visualizations. I always knew about the warning chimes, the red line, and the outright collision avoidance, but never took notice (or read) of this one. When you’re on...

    Progressive rating for MS: no blind spot warning

    Progressive increased my insurance cost significantly in my last offer of 12/29. I expected an increase because I have been in two at-fault non serious accidents with brand new cars in the last year, one being my own M$. They have PAID because of my errors - over $15k - so I do not blame them...

    Blind Spot Detection

    Hi All Many new cars come with blind spot detection whereby mirror lights up when another car is in blind spot -- a great visual cue. Has made me wonder why Tesla MS doesnt have this feature. So how are we supposed to know when someone in our blindspot -- look down at dash to study...

    Enhanced safety while changing lanes

    In the Model 3, standard neck-twist visibility is limited due to thick posts and high back. Same with rearview mirror use. My 2014 Honda had a right-turn-signal camera for the blind spot. Most cars today have either that or blind-spot warning in the rearview mirrors. My new Tesla Model 3 has...

    Nighttime blind spot detection

    In the daytime, I really like the new blindspot monitor which shows little (dancing) rectangles approach me from the rear. Unfortunately, this feature is almost useless at night. I can see a car behind me in my mirror, but it does not appear on the screen. I have also had cars approach on either...

    v9 using feature only available in FSD?

    I thought that Full Self Driving option only had a future-benefit, not a current one. (And I was told this by Tesla salesperson when I purchased my M3P four weeks ago). However, reading the Release Notes for v9, it seems that Blindspot Warning does utilize the FSD. In other words, if one did...

    Does AP avoid driving in other vehicles blind spots?

    I know that I'll find this out "eventually" in my HW2 MS, but was curious if the current autopilot is smart enough to try to keep out of the blind spots of other vehicles.

    "Blind Spot Detection is disappointing"

    After almost getting creamed tonight in a lane change (not on autopilot) to the left, I am beginning to get the impression that the blind spot detection system on my 2016 Tesla Model S 90D is not nearly as proactive as the side mirror-based warning systems for other cars. On my previous car, a...
