On the first stop or the second? Didn't they say that the first stop was always good and then it went downhill from there?

They let it sit overnight and still encountered poor brake performance the next day. Even used 2 different cars to test.

Yeah, CR said: the first stop (of all braking tests) was the shortest. It was never repeated, even the next day when they repeated the tests.

They said Car & Driver also saw "bizarre" variability in stopping distances. (That's not a word I'd expect them to use if they're just talking about brake fade, something they have plenty of experience with.)

I am guessing it has to do with integrating the regenerative braking with the friction brakes.

I may be wrong, but I think earlier Tesla's did not have regen on the brake pedal?

ABS fixed remotely, CR now "recommends" Model 3

Fascinating, Captain...


Quote:
Consumer Reports now recommends the Tesla Model 3, after our testers found that a recent over-the-air (OTA) update improved the carís braking distance by almost 20 feet.



[...]


In an email to CR, a Tesla spokeswoman said that the company had improved the software for the Model 3ís antilock braking system to adapt to variations in how the brakes might be used and to respond to different environmental conditions.

Except today CR rescinded their recommendation again citing issues with the touchscreen.

So the ABS software update made the touchscreen hard to use, or did CR's testers just phone it in?
