    I have model S with AP2. Only few times early collision warning system had alerted me avoiding front impact and once from side impact when a cargo van tried to come into my lane while I was next to him.

    Today, I was driving on I-95 in MD area (in 2nd lane from right on 4 lane highway). Honda Odyssey was to the left of me, he tried to switch lane into my lane, almost causing an accident! I was expecting some sort of side collision alert from car! I was very dissaponted, many times I noticed this kind of inconsistencies from early collision warning system. I think it’s very unreliable, I hope tesla hires proper people to figure all this out. Car is very fun to drive but this kind of unreliable safety features are just unacceptable in my option. Anyone experienced similar issues?

    My S had been overly annoying with regards to early accident avoidance, but not with potential side impacts like you described.

    I keep my early collision warning to "earliest" setting and it hasn't given me any false beeps yet.. it did beep once when I just passing a mailbox ! Not sure if this car even has side collision warning system, but it did warn me once so I am hoping it does have it.. but looks like it's not reliable at all which is very sad :(

    A somewhat related question. Am I supposed to see cars in adjacent lanes on the display? If I am not mistaken I saw adjacent cars when I did a Model S test drive last month. But I am not seeing them (at least not yet) on the car I just purchased. I see the cars in front of me, but not those passing by. Is this normal?

    If you test drove AP2 car and it showed adjacent cars which means that may be future software version... I am running AP2 latest software and it only shows cars in the front.

    Out of curiosity, do you guys keep AEB at Medium (default) or Early?

    I keep mine at early.. I prefer to be notified as early as possible. I know others have said it's annoying but that's not the case with me.
