I took delivery of a new Model S last weekend and was finally able to use EAP yesterday after the car finished calibrating. My previous Model S had AP1. I used Autosteer on the interstate, and it worked well, except at one point when the car inexplicably issued a “Take Over Immediately” alert while I was in the middle of an auto lane change. I’m not sure what the problem was, since the lanes were well marked and there were no other vehicles nearby.
I never had that alert when using AP1, and I haven’t driven the new car much so I don’t know if it will happen again. What I do know is if I hadn’t been holding the wheel, something bad could have happened. I know some of you don’t like having to hold the wheel, but this is an example of why you still need to.
