It isn’t just the AP team that has issues to fix, though. There are issues with the UI, Bluetooth, streaming, the dang back up camera etc. They are getting behind the competition on the UI front. Every car I rent nowadays has better phone/music integration than Tesla does. Things like text integration, playlist support, apps (waze, Spotify, XM), etc. They probably should have outsourced that.
The software doesn’t have to be 100% bug free. But they need a much better % than they have today. I would gladly get fewer updates if they were QC’d a little better before realease.
FWIW if you check indeed.com you'll see that Tesla is looking to fill openings in those areas and more.
