This morning I unlocked my car with the key, accidentally left the key outside the car on a table in my garage, got into my car and drove off. After I reached my destination(5 miles away) and put the car in park, the dashboard showed a message "Key not in car". After that I was unable to put the car back in drive mode. So I was stuck and had to call my friend to pick me up.
Is this the expected behaviour?
I thought this was not possible with the Tesla, thought the car would stop or atleast warn driver that the key was not in the car. Has anyone else had this issue?
