Anyone else have those nervous moments? Or is it just a matter of learning to trust the car over time? It's a jarring experience to roll in so fast and slow down with aggressive Regen. Any thoughts?
I quit allowing the car to stop in the city for the reasons you cited. I actually trust the car now (mostly) to stop, but I don't like it using the brakes all the time to be as aggressive as it is. I still use TACC in teh city but generally deactivate it as I approach a light.
I do think Tesla should have some kind of slider to set between aggressive and casual for how the car does everything on autopilot. A computer should be super efficient and accurate at both extremes. ie, if it knows it will need to stop in 100 ft, it should be far more exact than a human would be on the exact deceleration / regen rate to come to a stop within that distance.
I also feel like the auto steer on the car can be too abrupt and it shouldn't be. again, the computer should be 100% capable of plotting the cleanest arc between turn start and turn end to make for a super smooth ride. I'm a pilot (small aircraft), I know that lots of configuration changes need to happen on takeoff and approach on larger planes, but if you do it right the passengers won't even notice. I carry a lot of that over to my driving, to be as clean as possible, even when its just me in the car.
