    Why I am losing faith in Tesla’s Autopilot (Autosteer)

    I absolutely love my Model 3. I have had it for just over 3 years now and enjoyed driving every mile of the 42,000 miles that I have clocked till today. Most of the mileage has been on the highway and the remainder was miles that I racked up while commuting for work before the pandemic. When I...

    Anyone else having trouble with Traffic-Aware Cruise Control?

    I'm currently driving across Canada in light winter conditions and have had to fight with cruise control a lot more than I'd like. When you activate cruise control you are also engaging Autopilot even if you don't have the Full Self Driving package. And because Autopilot depends on the car's...

    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...

    Today I experienced phantom braking with Beta when vehicles come up behind to pass. This is dangerous as a closely following vehicle hardly expects the vehicle in front to suddenly slow down. I've read of phantom braking in other scenarios, but not from passing vehicles. Anyone else experience...

    False Positive Automatic Emergency Braking at 80mph

    While driving 80mph on a highway and my lane was clear of traffic in front of me. However, traffic visualization displayed a small sedan in front of my car, adjacent to the semi I was passing. As I approached closer to the false car, automatic emergency braking suddenly engaged and slowed me...

    First long road trip in my 2022 MYP (one month in)

    Heya! I received my 2022 MYP Dec. 28. Delivery was fantastic and car was perfect inside and out. I missed out on the Ryzen upgrade, unfortunately, but oh well! Happily received the car and have been driving it for about 6 weeks around town. We did our first long (1200 mile RT) trip in the...

    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.

    Remove autopilot from car configuration

    Hi, Is it possible to remove autopilot from the cars software configuration so traffic aware cruise control is replaced with “ordinary” cruise control? The roads i drive on is not suitable for TACC and phantom braking is occurring so often that I can not use it. Therefore i want to permanently...

    Is FSD refundable

    Hi all, My MYLR is a great car but I got the vision only models delivered in May and I am not impressed with FSD so far. Constant phantom breaking in both TACC and Autosteer mode is scaring me and making the rest of the family sick. My wife now forbids me to use any autopilot features when...

    Phantom Braking - 2021 MY

    I was driving on I49 last night maintaining a speed of 75mph. Car was on Autopilot. Car abruptly slowed down to 50 mph. It was around 1 AM. Road was clear. No rain, no bugs, no cars ahead of me. It was scary. If this phantom braking would have occurred during the day on heavy traffic I would...

    Phantom Braking vs TACC in Late 2020

    On the cusp of getting a new car, and there is so much about the Tesla Model 3 that I love. The one thing I'm worried about is phantom braking during TACC (not talking steering assist, nor FSD). I've been doing a little digging... OK a lot of digging, and it is clear that with each software...

    Just the one car so far. Oddly, no longer showing up on TeslaFi release list.

    Reduce/eliminate phantom braking (trigger warning)

    Some weeks ago I posted a poll on how often people experience phantom braking, and the results were around 50% for "Almost never" and the rest spread out over "seldom" to "almost always". That's a really high number so I decided to test out different strategies to improve it (I was one of the...

    My 100D model S regularly brakes hard for no reason at all when in FSD. Have others noticed this?

    For the past few weeks I've noticed extremely erratic braking when in FSD. The car is going along just fine and it will all of a sudden, for no reason at all, slam the brakes and slow down roughly 15-20 mph. It is dangerous and has almost caused an accident twice

    How often do you experience phantom braking

    I think most people on this forum has experienced phantom braking. Some think it's no problem, others think it's a crime against humanity. Personally I think it's such an awful experience that I don't use TACC or AP any more. Every once in a while I use it while I open a bottle or put on my...

    Increased AP1 phantom braking lately

    During few weeks lately i’ve noticed increased phantom braking in my 2015 AP1 Model S. Normally phantom braking is rare, but during last few weeks I’ve had many. Perhaps it is because of piles of snow on road shoulders. We have got a lot of snow during last few weeks. AP1 has whitelist of...
