Maybe I'm the only person on the planet with a 2013 Model S without the tech package. If there is anyone else out there, I have a question for you. Did you recently lose the touch-to-open functionality? I know we don't have auto-present, but this is not the same thing. I used to be able to unlock the car by touching the driver's side handle, but earlier this year it stopped working. At first I thought it was a key battery thing. Not. Then I figured it was a hardware problem, but the Tesla service guy tested everything and it isn't a hardware problem. My theory is that some idiot developer thought touch entry and auto-present are the same thing, and wrote it out of the firmware for non-tech people. I'm sorry, but my car should not be going backwards in terms of convenience. Now it's no better than the 2000 VW Passat I had before this car, with having to click the fob. I am incredibly frustrated at getting the run-around about this.
