Stuck Mode Button/Help Section

I was recently driving my Model X after a snowfall and got too close the the side of a shovelled road and one of the front tires got stuck in the snow a little lower on an embankment.

I tried reversing out but for some reason only that tire in the snow was spinning and I couldn’t get out. I called Tesla roadside assistance and they told me to turn on slip start, turn off regenerative breaking, raise the suspension, etc.

I’m just wondering - why not just have a feature that automatically puts the car into the right mode to get out of a sticky situation?

In lieu of that, having a help section that guides you through all the settings to be in the optimal mode?

Thank you.
