True enough. Fault is hard to find. Tesla's animated marketing joins the average person's lack of time to fully understand what its limits are. But I'd say it's easier to modify Tesla's marketing than to enhance the critical thinking of John or Jane Q. Public, who is likely already grabbing onto this tech as a way to more efficiently use the time they don't have to better understand Tesla autopilot limits.
