Proximity sensors detecting false objects

Just picked up my new model 3 yesterday and noticed the same thing today on the interstate.

Left side sensors seem ok, but right ones struggle with any vehicle larger than a car and lose their crap with an 18 wheeler. Like either lose sight of it when it’s right next to me or panic when one is 2 lanes over and show it invading my lane. Anyone else have this? Should I try rebooting the display?

I am having the same issue. I visited the SC several times for this issue but they didn't fix it. I found it happens only in the particular sections of the highways - but pretty often, and the SC guys refused to drive that far from the center.
