    I was wondering when or if Consumer Reports would also go after Mercedes Benz's "self-driving car" claims in their ads:

    I'm glad to see at least that their position on advanced auto-assist features is consistent across brands, and not just singling out Tesla.

    How incredibly irresponsible they are for using the word Drive Pilot. Don't they realize that by having that name people are going to assume it can drive itself?? How dare they release that onto the market when it's not 100% perfect. It could kill someone.

    :p

    From what I've been reading it doesn't even sound 5% perfect!

    Naming the function "Drive Pilot" isn't nearly as bad as proclaiming the vehicle itself as a "self-driving car" in their ads!
