Tesla Finally Caught on I guess

I was one of the lucky people who picked up their model 3 and had EAP enabled for some reason. It basically worked flawlessly even through updates till last week.

Now the option has disappeared.

I foolishly thought that since now all cars come with EAP standard we would be able to keep it, but i guess not.

Anyone else experience this? Anyone know if you can still purchase EAP?

For those asking, summon disappeared from our app as well.

EAP disappeared as an option early in 2019. Since then you either get single-lane autopilot as standard (lane keeping + ACC) or can buy full self driving to enable summon, lane changes, NoA, etc. plus future unicorn fart capabilities.

You can no longer buy EAP and it does not come as standard.

That is what I thought, but the car looks like its been downgrade to pre 2019, only has stand cruise control, no way to select vehicle queue, and no auto steer.

I thought the new cars came with ACC, Auto Steer?

Auto Steer is part of FSD now.
Basic Auto Pilot is included which is ACC and Lane Keeping only

I got my Long Range RWD car October 2018. We had EAP for sure, since we had Navigate on autopilot and Auto Steer as well as Summon.

Did you PAY for EAP?

If you didn’t pay for it and took delivery before 1/1/19 then your autopilot functionality was in error and it looks like they’ve corrected it. There were no standard non-safety autopilot features in 2018 models.

All cars do NOT come with EAP currently. They come with AP which is defined as "Autopilot enables your car to steer, accelerate and brake automatically within its lane."

You cannot buy EAP anymore.

That is what I was looking for, my car currently says AutoPilot in the menu, and has the options there. What i dont see the icon anymore for auto steer, or the option to select how many car distances to maintain.

You need to buy FSD and AP. Check your Tesla account online to see how much those are going to cost you.
This is what im trying to figure out, in my car it says autopilot and has option (my friends car use to say purchase now). I thought autopilot was $3k and FSD ws $6k at the time of purchasing. But now cars come with Autopilot and the only option is FSD.

Yes which is why you need to log into your tesla account and look under software upgrades. It will show what you can purchase and how much. I would buy FSD because its EAP plus future features.

I am reaching out to tesla because what my car shows me and what my account show me seems different.

I have a 2018 3 and I paid $5,000 for EAP at time of purchase. If memory serves the post-delivery price was $6,000. FSD was another $3,000.

So I *think* you can buy EAP for $6,000 to restore the previous functionality but with Tesla’s creative communication who the hell knows.

BTW all Teslas have an “autopilot” menu whether or not the system was purchased.

If you had it and did not pay for it this was an accident. I got my car in August of 2018. I paid 7k for EAP a couple months later.

Your bill of sale will list if you paid for EAP or not. I think you will now have the option of buying Autopilot (not EAP) and FSD.
