Used AP yesterday for about 50 miles, a mix of A roads both dual and single carriageway and some B roads. Seemed nicely centred to me.

I had one day a while back (early 2021.4 version) where the car was off to the left, made it unusable outside of lane 1 on multi-lane roads. At the same time the energy consumption was also very high, maybe 50% or so high. But it was only that one day, since then it's been in the centre as it used to. Very concerning though how updates can radically alter how the car behaves, in a bad way.

I am comfortable with AP on dual carriageways except when passing lorries. Over the years I have learnt to give extra space to lorries because they are sometimes subject to side winds or may veer unexpectedly out of their lane for other reasons. I have switched AP off on many occasions due to it being closer than I like when passing large vehicles. IMO aside from phantom braking this is the worst aspect of AP. Because of this behaviour I find it more stressful to drive with AP and tend to use just TACC these days.
