I love the MS. When do you think you would use these features?
Driving to work, long trips on the interstate, stop and go traffic.
I don't think I would except for the novelty of it.
I use TACC on road trips ALL the time. I hated cruise control before TACC. I'm going to use AP on those same road trips now, and see if it makes the commute easier.
TACC is the only option I care about.
1/3 of traffic fatalities (in the U.S.) are from leaving the roadway.
Just came back from a 98 mile round trip - 90% autopilot. Can't believe how well it worked! I was already making a good use of the TACC as I think it is safer.
So happy I didn't leave the AP option on the table like the Tesla sales guy suggested - "No one gets the autopilot"..
I've been using TACC 99% of my freeway driving... and probably 50% of around town driving. It reduces the stress from driving IMMENSELY. I wouldn't buy a Tesla without it before... and especially since AutoPilot is now live with the 7.0 update !!!
I drive long distances quite frequently and already use TACC on all those trips. Auto steering will make things even less stressful!
Having used it for about 30 miles of driving today I can say that I will use it a lot. It is really easy to engage and to adjust speed. I generally don't like cruise or anything like that because I fancy myself an engaged and competent driver, but this is really fun. It's a new aid for the drive. You can engage it for a few miles, let the car do the work and then take over (or not). It's simple and intuitive. I have to say it was worth the wait. Very cool to get the feeling of a brand new car experience OTA. Kudos Tesla.
Absolutely. I'm up early and a few extra zees never hurt.
I recently drive solo from Dallas to Tampa. I would have traded a kidney for autopilot on that trip.
The TACC is super nice for the kind of driving I do (bad commute traffic where the speed fluctuates between 0 and 60 mph). It is great not having to keep stopping and starting all the time. I just got the 7.0 update but have only had a chance to try it briefly so far. I suspect it will also make my commute nicer, once I get used to it.
And don't forget the auto dimming high beams! Those are a major benefit when driving on the dark and windy road my house is on.
I love TACC. I tried autopilot on my commute home. If my future experiences with it are similar to today's, I won't be using it unless I move somewhere with better roads.
I use TACC all the time on pretty much any trip requiring more than a few miles on the freeway.
In some ways it's kinda like a buddy system. It looks after me, and I look after it. For the first month or so of ownership I was extremely cautious with it and had my foot hovering over the brake all the time.
Now with V7 I'm really nervous with the lane-steering where I have my hands near/on the steering wheel ready to take over and I've been taking over when it's even slightly off.
It's probably going to require a couple months for me to get used to it, and for all the data from the drivers to improve the system.
I am salivating at the idea of it with the Model 3. I hatttteeee freeway driving but am forced to do it regularly. I TRY and use cruise control but the other drivers on the road have other plans for me so I am constantly engaging it, braking, resetting, etc... Even just having TACC would be a huge bonus for me, much less auto lane steering.
I'v used it around town and on a short highway trip and it worked freakishly well! There are things it trys to do like follow a car through a sharp turn (in the city low speeds) then gives up half way through and alarms so you have to be careful in situations like that.
