They already had a sensor for that and activated that with a software update a long time ago (the window does drop down as the door opens). The message remains since theoretically if you push the door open fast enough, it can still have a chance of damaging the trim, and given that release is not designed for regular use, it also serves as a disincentive to keep pulling it.So with the 2021 M3P your stereos don't cut out when you put your iPhone on or off the charger?
@Gauss Guzzler - It's pretty remarkable that there is a message that comes up saying you may damage your trim when you use the mechanical door latch vs putting in a $1 switch to activate the window retraction when the mechanical lever is pulled. SMH.
Manual door handle (interior) rolls window down?
Some people like their cars with such options or that just by buying the performance option that it is already bundled with it (as is typically the case with premium cars), but some people they are buying it mainly for the performance and Teslas tend to be a bargain when you consider that.Even at $35,000 a Hyundai is going to have a very nice interior and most of the safety and convenience items missing on the Model 3. Also keep in mind that as you pay for a higher trim level, you should get more premium features. I really like that Tesla has a focus on performance, but they really need to step up their creature comfort and safety features. They are also missing out on making a lot more profit by not offering more packages. You can spend as much on options as the cost of the car with a Porsche. LOL. Makes them very profitable.
As for included features, there are certainly features Tesla includes that other entry premium cars don't. There was an analysis done somewhere, but lazy to search for it (basically mainly things like TACC, auto steer, all the include safety features, heated seats everywhere, etc).
As for comparing to a Hyundai, not sure that is necessarily fair comparison, as if you do the same comparison with other premium brands, you usually get more features for your money also. A lot of the money you save is down to the drop in performance.
