Yes it does -- some you can turn off (thankfully), and others you can't.
The brake lights come on right away when regen braking. The MY has audible tones all around when close to objects.
Correct as per the manual I quoted in post #12, brake lights come on only "...if regenerative braking is aggressively slowing..."I *believe* the brake lights go on in regen braking when you go over a certain force, in Gs. I don't know the exact value. I don't believe the lights should come on for a very light slowdown, like you can use engine compression on an ICE car without the lights coming on. The car image on the screen will show the when the brake lights are on.
I think the variable assist could use some tweaking. I think the variable assist weighting is perfect on my BMW and Infiniti. On the Tesla in Sport Mode, I find that when driving slow, the assist is on the heavy side, but when you are driving faster, the assist is much too light. I don't even bother with comfort or normal mode on the Tesla. They are way too light for me.I dont find the steering much different than all the BMWs I have had over the years either, with the exception that on those, if possible I put them in sport steering, and on my model 3P i use "regular" instead of sport steering and it feels the same as my wifes BMW with sport steering enabled.
It does not have a cross traffic alarm, which many other cars do. It has many alarms about immobile objects (cars, walls, etc).Thanks, maybe I misunderstood what this meant "when backing out be very cautious Other new automobiles have radar with audible tones that you may have easily relied on",
I noticed this as well... I can make MUCH tighter U turns in my Infinitis than my Y. It's not too terrible, but there were definitely places I have to make U-turns, where I have to be really careful in the Y, but never had to care in my other cars.I find turning radius of the Y a bit lacking when making U turns. The BMWs and MBZs actually have the front wheels turn in/out at an angle on full lock turns to provide better maneuvering capability.
I've noticed wide turns backing in to parking spaces as well. You would think the turning radius is tighter than it is.I noticed this as well...

OMG that made me laugh!!I would add to be very gentle on the accelerator when driving forward or backing up out of the garage until it becomes familiar. My wife's first drive was initially very exciting, she goosed the accelerator like she does her BMW and the Tesla shot out of the garage, luckily not taking off the mirrors in the process.
