Greetings fellow M3 owners!
I picked up my M3 Wednesday (woohoo!) and couldn't wait to engage Auto Pilot on my way home as soon as the car finished with its calibration process! I immediately noticed the ping pong issue that I've read about and that the test drive car I drove had as well. However, there are times it's so bad I have to turn off AP because I probably look like a drunk driver! And this morning on the way to work when I engaged AP, the car would immediately jerked/swerved to left and then recenter itself, even though I was centered in the lane to begin with. It was so bad I had to immediately correct it which cancelled AP. I tried it a couple more times but gave up since there was enough traffic to make me concerned about safety. I live in Phoenix and commute on I-17, the lines are clearly marked and the car appears to identify the lane dividers just fine so I'm guessing it's something addressed with a software update and hopefully not a lengthy repair process. Car is still squeaky clean and still has that overwhelming new car glue smell :) so the sensors should be fine.
The car states its software is up to date, but apparently from what I've read, that doesn't necessarily mean it really is. So I did some searching and scheduled a mobile service appointment under the Software section based on what others have suggested. However, the earliest service appointment is 10 days out. :( Not sure why they scheduled someone to look at my car and not try an update first.
After reading several forum posts, it seems like Tesla pushes out updates on their own secret schedule, much like their delivery process! :) How do I know what is the latest released version for my car? Is there somewhere to look it up? My car is on version 2019.35.108 3554e19 which I think isn't current.
Anyone have any ideas how I can get the latest (or at least a newer) update pushed out since this isn't just a feature request? I get it that I don't "need" AP so I'm sure it won't be a priority for Tesla, but it seems like it could end up being a serious safety issue. I know I'm probably being impatient since I just scheduled the mobile service appointment, but AP was one of the main reasons I got the car, besides all its other awesomeness! :)
Thanks in advance!!
