I've had the car a couple of days and absolutely love it (obviously!)
The one thing I haven't figured out is how to smoothly turn off cruise control. I have regen set to my preferred 'strong' (normal) level which works great when driving around using the accelerator, but causes problems when using cruise control.
In 'normal' cars, you can either disable (pause) cruise by pressing a cruise button or feathering the brake pedal. Ditto in the Model S. OK so far.
BUT - in ICE cars there is no regen so when cruise is paused the car starts a gradual slow down. In the S that car immediately starts an aggressive deceleration.
Anyone figured out a good technique to smoothy disable cruise? There is so much torque that trying to get the accelerator pedal into just the right spot to enable a smooth transition when disabling cruise has proved elusive so far.
