I mean ford just got rid of most of their car line so no one is calling them brilliant by any means.
Helps weed out the good dealers from the bad in my opinion. And I'd call them brilliant enough, being the only domestic car manufacturer to not crumble into a tax payer bailout. Could be a good move...time will tell.

Pretty envious of that dealer experience. Lincoln does a pretty good job with this process but they obviously position themselves as a "higher" experience than basic Ford. I've always gotten a loaner that's the exact same trim or a higher overall vehicle. Lincoln also details the cars after service which is a nice touch, but it's not like a buff and wax job.

What really impressed me in your story is that they fixed the wind noise because they thought it needed to be done without prompting. That you will RARELY see anywhere, period.

Itís possible they did that because I was in for service regarding a wind noise issue before as well. Also the Tesla cars seem more prone to these types of complaints, both because of alignment issues and because the car is totally silent. You notice every little noise.

Either way exceptional service

Saw a Model S 100D (non-P) with California manufacturers plates driving around Palatine last night. Didn't know they made a non-P version of the 100.

Yep the 100D is pretty popular, and gets more range than the performance model.

You buy the 100D and add the optional performance package, for another 20-30 grand I think.

Tesla should own the 4 door sedan market...... if they could just build them fast enough! Ford was smart enough to already admit defeat.

Tesla eventually will. They have already surpassed all the German makers in Europe in the luxury market. BMW, AuDi etc have all been declining while Tesla has been increasing dramatically.

Thereís a few YouTube videos showing the same thing.

But they are right in that it is a driver aid and you need to be paying attention. There have been enough sensationalized Autopilot stories by now that nobody that has a Tesla should have any confusion over itís capabilities.

I think maybe some of the confusion is that Tesla is releasing cars with full self driving hardware but has yet to release full self driving software and maybe theyíre thinking their vehicles are more advanced than they really are.

My understanding is that even the brand new cars with the 8 cameras are only using the two forward facing cameras, radar and the sonar sensors, essentially making them equivalent to Autopilot V1 cars in terms of capabilities.

Iíve had my car also alert me and the screen turn red from 2 cars ahead stopping quick.

Iím not going to defend the system itís not perfect probably never will be. But holy shit does it come close in terms of highway driving.
