Anyone else having too many Autpilot close calls?
Yesterday we had two terrifying close calls with the autopilot. On one occasion, we were traveling 70 mph on a straight stretch of highway and started to approach a traffic jam that was absolutely stopped. We were waiting ... waiting... The car was not stopping, not slowing down. All of a sudden the alarm sounds and autopilot disengages and have to slam the breaks to stop from crashing into the stopped cars. Next, we are behind a car and traveling about 55 mph. I turn on the left turn signal and a car passes from behind to the right and moves ahead. The car in the left lane was probably no more than 12 inches ahead and the Tesla stars to turn too soon into the left lane almost striking the car. Had to pull the wheel back to my current lane and disengage autopilot. This thing is freaking me out!
