AP for me has taken a turn for the worse by waiting too late to start braking when coming up to cars in front then hitting the brakes and then deciding oh wait that's to much brake let off then back on it can't seem to make up its mind.
I drove a road last night that for the past year the car has done quite well but now with AP at 55 it slows way too much (42mph) in the corners then speeds back up like it can't figure out what to do.
Taking off from a red light it's almost like the Tesla goes oh crap that car started moving I better get going and accelerates too quickly jerking you back for no reason then letting off deciding it has caught up with the car in front. How efficient can that possibly be to race to get to speed then wait too late and slam on the brakes to stop at the next red light? It was a little slow on acceleration on the previous releases but they need to get the car rolling a few MPH before getting on the accelerator. I understand AP is only supposed to be used on the HWY but it has been a lot better around town than this.
NOA- Still can't seem to make up its mind what lane it would like to be in. Moves to the left then back to the right after a very short period of time. Not to mention turning on the signal starting to change lanes then getting spooked and jerking back then deciding oh ok it is clear and changes lanes again.
It would be great to be able to see why the car is making these bad decisions because I can't see any reason on the screen or my eyes to why it's driving so poorly.
I'm guessing driving this poorly on public roads is why others get mad at Tesla owners. I can only imagine them making comments like make up your mind or why are you slowing to 45mph in a 65 there is nothing around you.
