"Before activating the features enabled by the new hardware, we will further calibrate the system using millions of miles of real-world driving to ensure significant improvements to safety and convenience. While this is occurring, Teslas with new hardware will temporarily lack certain features currently available on Teslas with first-generation Autopilot hardware, including some standard safety features such as automatic emergency braking, collision warning, lane holding and active cruise control. "
So if I buy a Tesla tomorrow, it will come with less features than another one bought last month when it arrives? In fact, it will come with less features than a well-specified competitor (BMW, Mercedes, etc) and no idea when it will catch up.
I don't want to go backwards. I want to go forwards. I want the features now and more, not less features now.
I want a car that does the same things as earlier cars and more. I don't want to be funding Tesla's product development and then beta test their code when it's rolled out.
Why do customers tolerate this from Tesla?
