Is there any individual car learning after an update?

    Has this question every been definitively answered? There seems to be quite a bit of anecdote but no solid info that I have ever seen. The question is - do our individual cars "learn" anything that is not shared with the fleet. Do our driving habits affect our individual cars in any way?

    Almost certainly. Many current cars have values which are adjusted as the car is used. My car for example has a variable determining how much force is used to open windows. Loss of the battery loses this and the car needs to relearn.

    The question for Teslas is what learning is done. We know for instance that the air shocks learn where they need to be raised.

    Thank you kindly.
