As much as I love what Tesla is doing to the auto market (and have been paying attention to the court battle in my home state between them and the auto dealers' association with, as they say, great interest), this was really dumb. I get what they're doing -- trying to scare off the plaintiffs in the inevitable lawsuit, and prevent further fears about the safety of their cars (while also trying to get people to not depend on the autopilot). But this was totally a forced error. As an aside, they should probably rethink what they call the thing.

I'm of the opinion that Tesla wants people to think adaptive cruise control and lane assist are an auto pilot.

Tesla is too good at marketing to demote the perceived value proposition of their product.

Every product they release they make it seem like its the biggest greatest thing ever made.

AutoLiability? Or is that too much on the nose...
