    FSD and Phantom Braking on the Highway. It is Insane.

    Since I got FSD beta and Tesla switched to a "vision only" system I have been having several random braking whether driving on interstate or state highways (2018 Model S). This happens noticeably when driving with no one in front of me. It has made highway travel an annoyance while having AP...

    Phantom Braking Needs to be Reported and Fixed

    Yeah, it's bad. I'll be cruising along at 70 mph and my Model Y sees a yellow caution sign with flashing lights and hits the brakes. I push the camera icon to report each incident. Not sure how much that helps, if at all.

    Random Breaking on Highway

    Yesterday (July 21), I was cruising along at 65 mph on Highway 5, returning home from using a Supercharger in Santa Clarita. My car decided to aggressively apply the brakes while in Autopilot, an event that was somewhat disconcerting to me and the SUV driver that was following at what should...

    NoA brakes on highway for merging vehicles

    My wife and I are big fans of Tesla. We have a model 3 and a Y and both have NoA. I love to use NoA on the highway, but have found this issue to be a safety concern that should be resolved as anytime the car brakes suddenly and unexpectedly it could cause an accident. When driving in the...

    Don't try this on the highway... 2020.4.1

    Today I learned something new about Tesla's FSD AP. Luckily I'm still alive. When going on the highway with AP ON (without NoAP) and you are passing your exit, literally going next to the exit lane AND you enable NoAP car just rips towards the exit lane. Luckily for me the road was dry and...

    Melbourne to Byron in our S60

    Just completed a return trip Melbourne to Byron Bay (Ocean Shores actually) in our (modest battery!) S60. Great trip with Superchargers very conveniently spaced. Eight Supercharger stops (free for life) varying from 25-40 minutes, pretty well timed for a meal or coffee break. Averaged...

    Tesla Software Version 10.0

    Hey all, I hadn't seen a discussion of this anywhere here so I thought I'd start a thread. Some recent tweets by Elon show that version 10 should be out by September, and will include a series of new features. "V10 will include several games & infotainment features, improved highway...

    Tesla "Emergency Assist"?

    I had an unfortunate circumstance happen to me a few months ago in my '16 Model S. While driving to work early one morning on an access road that was merging on the interstate, I had an epileptic seizure (first one in my life) without warning that rendered me unconscious. At that point...

    Highway distance driving

    My wife and I are moving to Austin, TX in June and will be caravanning our MS75D behind our Ford Explorer (hauling a moving trailer). I'm hoping someone can give me an account of their experience driving the model S at near the range limit particularly between Wilcox, AZ & El Paso, TX and/or...

    Timeline of Crash Safety Testing

    I began truly following Tesla after Model S entered full scale production, so I am quite lacking of any concept of how long it took Tesla, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), to rate the crash safety ratings of the Model S, or Model X, and to extrapolate those time...

    Noticed something odd with autopilot

    Over the past two days I've noticed that twice now my vehicle automatically adjusted speed with the speed limit. I know that it always reduces speed when the speed limit changes but twice now while driving into a higher speed limit Zone the vehicle sped up. It's only happened twice and I can't...

    Highway or country road driving question

    Hi all! I have around a 82 mile commute each day round trip that I could take one of two routes on my way to work and back home. One is almost entirely highway with tolls costing me $99.86 monthly, the other is single lane, occasional double lane, yellow divided country road with no tolls. I...
