    That's pretty funny. Almost makes me want to slam my doors hard and see if it yells at me.

    Sort of like making wrong turns on purpose to see if you can get a rise out of your GPS?

    BTW, I doubt there's a force sensor on the lid. More likely it detected that the lid closed and opened in a very short time, and so concluded that it wasn't closed "properly".

    This will happen also with your trunk.
    Some software engineer with Tesla wanted the model 3 to have feelings.

    No, because one is expected and the other is more of a nice easter egg.

    I guess if the thing can't be designed to close intuitively, might as well make a relevant error. Next best thing to doing it correctly, at least.

    Crazy to think they would add complexity to something simple and mechanical.

    In my early days of ownership I found the message helpful. I was pushing the cover of the bin too hard and it wouldn’t close. The message informed me of the correct technique to close the bin.
