    I have driven many other vehicles over the years and the Model S I now own is pleasure to drive even without Auto Pilot. In my area which is very rural I felt AP would have been unnecessary. BUT I wonder why Tesla does not have Traffic Aware Cruise Control as a standard feature. Every car made after 2016 I have ever driven does. Even a cheap little Toyota Corolla. This would be an easy update via the software and not infringe on the AP/Autosteer users' enhanced system.

    My guess is money.

    Tesla wants you to pay $3,000 more as an optional feature instead of including it as standard.
