    Never heard of auto steering input when not in AP. Was there a rut in the road that could have moved the steering?

    My understanding is that this is part of side collision avoidance. I haven't been brave enough to 'test' it on my non-EAP model 3 just yet.

    Lane assist will just vibrate the wheel, collision avoidance will nudge it if it thinks you are going to crash.

    Yes this is side collision avoidance. Been active on the S and X for at least a year.

    Another vote for side collision avoidance. We don't have EAP active on the Model 3, but I've had it intervene when a truck drifted into my lane on the Model X.

    I believe it is only active when EAP detects the lane markers and it won't swerve out of your lane to avoid the collision, so if something is coming far enough into your lane you need to react.
