Do not grab the rear trunk under spoiler!

    If you open the rear trunk and want to grab it (e.g. to avoid it hitting an obstacle overhead), do not grab the lid under the spoiler (which is the intuitive place to grip and it is also shown in the Tesla Walk Through videos) since the spoiler now retracts as the trunk raises. I just about got my fingers pinched.

    It's ironic that I suggested this feature a few months ago, and I appear to be the first to get bitten by it.

    My spoiler always close while I open the trunk. So when closing the trunk, it's always down

    PS: In fact I noticed a bug about it last week, if you open the door while the trunk is open, the spoiler will go up (and it did touch my garage door)

    I shouldn't say this but I did not get retractable/adjustable spoiler. 1.6% range saving does not seem to justify cost, increased complexity of it
