Autopilot Frustration

I've noticed that in Autopilot while driving on the highway in the cruising lane my Model 3 tends to hug the left side of the lane, even when a vehicle in the passing lane is hugging the right side of their lane. My ultrasonic sensors and cameras see the other vehicle, yet stay hugging the left side of my lane. You'd think Autopilot since it sees that other vehicle, it would move over in my lane, as to not be so close to that vehicle. Often times I have to disengage Autopilot because being that close to another vehicle makes me uneasy. I've probably sent Tesla 100 bug reports about this issue. Seems like this would be a priority and easy to fix.

Not happening for most of us, perhaps consider a service appointment? People have had camera positioning issues.

I don't think I need a service appointment because it doesn't happen all the time and they most likely won't be able to replicate it. But a lot of people have complained about their Model 3 favoring the left side of a lane.

This is a common "bug" in the newest update. Autopilot alighns the car a bit to the left, even in middle lanes. Has nothing to do with the car infront of you. Assuming it will be fixed soon.
