Normally it is not necessary to use the brakes or only for the last few meters to a full stop. The problem is, the the brakes corrode, begin to squeak and the contact parttern gets worse. The only way to prevent this, is to brake. Even it is not necessary - totally insane...
It happens quite often that in a dangerous situation caused by some bad behaviour of other drivers or pedestrians in traffic I hit the brake or use the steering wheel to avoid it, and then, just in the second I passed the danger-zone, car starts to make noise or even hits the brake!
If the autopilot is enabled the driver has to move the steering wheel slightly to show that he is still present. This is super annoying and outdated. I think it is even dangerous to move the steering wheel because it might disable the autopilot and change driving directions i.e.
When stuck in snow, would be great to be able to activate « Auto Rocking Mode ». This mode would automatically rock the vehicle back and forth using the IMU, Cameras, etc... to get the best rocking motion possible and get out of snow easily. Especially for the RWD models.
Since last update my car can recognize speed-limit-signs, which makes driving better than before, but new problems are showing up:
(1) car cannot distinguish between the end of a speed-limit or the end of other restrictions (forbidden to overtake, end of parking-zone, ...)
Similar to the forward collision warning for the driver, the rear-end collision warning system would be for the driver of the following vehicle that is approaching too rapidly. The enhancement request would enable Tesla vehicles to flash the brake lights or center high-mounted
An audible warning when the speed limit changes. There are many places with small towns that suddenly change the speed limit to 25 MPH, it would be nice if the car gave an audible warning when the speed limit changed. Same when the speed limit increases as you leave town.
Allow for driver registration of which profile drove when where (to aid to distribute speed / park tickets with multiple drivers in family)
Request to allow to turn on a feature to have profile registration of who drove when where. All information should be available already. Motivation to request is that with multiple drivers in a family it can serve as help to distribute parking & traffic fines to the right driver.
every time, we reach this location, do ... activate sentry mode / ... show special camera view / ... open garage / ... switch off high beam / ... close external air ventilation / ... activate Joe mode / ... change radio channel / ... open charging flap / ... activate chill driving mode / ...
I live in Texas and frequent a number of ranches with a lot of cattle gates. Ranches with a lot of gates and incessant seat belt alarms do not work nicely together. It is very annoying to hear seat belt alarm while idling forward between gates that you need to open by hand.
