Do you still check the mirrors/look over shoulder when doing a lane change on auto pilot?

Also I always take the car off auto pilot when merging. Still don’t trust it in certain situations. How’s everyone’s experience with the merging?

I wouldn't trust it either. I still look for merges and specific situations and if there are a lot of cars around. However it does a pretty decent job on it's own. I've found it changes lanes too often and there's no way to turn it off easily. I just go into the setting and set it to require confirmation and then ignore it. It won't let me stay in the HOV lane without annoying me.

I don't know how the car is supposed to learn, but I let it do everything on its own when I'm by myself to hopefully help it learn. Otherwise, I perform all the dicey maneuvers manually when I have any passengers in the car.

It's still beta and not to be trusted.

Yes, always. It doesn't cut people off, however, and will wait until it's clear.

This is my practice as well. :)

I always check before it does anything. I've noticed that FSD has issues with left turns. It cuts into the lane to late (it passes the opening and passes over the white solid line). Have you noticed that at all?

Today I was in a left lane in FSD and told Tesla to move into right lane. Just as I signaled, a car pulled into right lane from a highway entrance. The screen flashed red, Tesla stayed in lane (as it should) and I waited to either overtake the other car or for it to overtake me, then change lanes. Instead Tesla suddenly braked, hard. I accelerated and took over. Is this a normal behavior in such situations?

Not sure if this has been posted. Mercedes is coming out level 3 autopilot.


I am underwhelmed as it only runs on geofenced highway up to 60km/hr with all the expensive equipments.
I think Tesla’s FSD beats this hand down. What do you all think?
