Building the cost into the base price of the car is not "Free." That would be Tesla taking away choices for the individual to make and that would just be silly. Leave it up to the consumer to decide whether they want it.I believe it should be free from the start and build the cost into the car purchase pricing itself.
Navigate on autopilot is generally inconsistent and unreliable for me depending on which exits I’m taking. Here’s what that means and consumer reports does a good job of describing this is, it leads to missed exits (unless you take over), sudden and immediate slowdowns once you’ve taken the exit (scary for you and the car behind you)..
My two cents. While I like the car, I am the guinea pig for Tesla and paying for a feature that doesn’t fully work. Yay.
Have FSD on both ours and 90% of the time only use bAP + auto lane changes. It’s just not very bright.I am only a couple of days into EAP, but so far I am not impressed.
If I weren't outside the window I would be asking for a refund.
- Phantom braking is significantly more with NoAP than regular AP.
- I tries to initiate a lane change when there is a car RIGHT NEXT TO ME (seriously - you can't wait until there is an open space?)
- It does a horrible job of managing traffic
FWIW, had a smoother than ever NOA drive yesterday on version 2020.36.11 in dense traffic. 3 freeway changes, a lot of merges, a tunnel, tight auto lane changes. Road back the same. I was tired and didn't even tweak the speed scroll wheel, just kicked back. I don't see how it could do it better. What's the deal with those that have trouble? Is it settings, or the fact I always reset after an update, wipe the cameras and sensors daily? Or what?
Over the last 20 months, right after an update, I've had a few times it was acting weird. Like a different machine. All sorts of stupid stuff. I stop, do a walk-around/wipe and reset both computers. Back on the road and everything's fine.
There's one thing that started a few months ago and might bother someone at first, which is that when a lane widens, or merges with another, the car promptly centers into the combined width. I'm used to it, but it did seem strange at first. But I don't think hugging either side would work better.
^^^ My car does the same thing but then it slows down to allow the car next to me move ahead and then changes lanes.
