After 8 months of owning my Model 3 these are my top 3 requests:
1. Stop auto-folding mirrors out when charge cable is removed from locked car
Our garage is a tight fit and the side mirrors are close to the wall and other car. When connecting to the (locked) car with the app and bluetooth in order to remove the charge cable, as soon as the cable is removed the mirrors auto-fold out. Since this is a narrow garage I then use Summon to pull the car out of the garage, which auto-folds the mirrors back in. So the mirrors are wastefully auto-folded out, only to be auto-folded back in when summoning. It would be much better to leave the mirrors alone when removing the charge cable.
2. Easier to use fan controls
While driving it is hard to adjust the fan level without being distracted. First the fan icon has to be tapped, then we have to continue looking at the screen in order to find the small -/+ icon and tap it repeatedly. This can get very distracting and be dangerous depending upon traffic conditions. Having larger -/+ icons on the initial screen next to the fan icon would save a tap and allow for faster adjustments while driving.
3. Fix Sentry issues
I've read on these forums that Sentry video issues are being worked on and that a fix is on the way. I use Sentry every time I drive, and have had multiple instances where the video wasn't recorded at all during an important moment, or the video was so choppy with artifacts that it was worthless. I'm using a high speed memory card and have confirmed that this is not the issue. The worst case scenario is that some damage would be done to the car during one of these failing Sentry moments.
Hopefully Tesla reads this post and these issues can be resolved soon.
