Interesting, three months into my Model Y Performance, this reviewer's primary complaints are all with Tesla design features I'd been concerned about before purchasing, but have come to increasingly appreciate the more I drive the car, namely phone key, door buttons, touchscreen info and controls, and AutoPilot.
I can't fathom what's preferable about manually locking and unlocking every time you approach and leave your car? Clearly this writer likes keyless entry, per their mention of the separately available fob. But why carry a fob when a mobile phone achieves the same thing, even more securely than RFID? (Ask millions of Toyota, Hyundai, and Kia owners about this, right?)
This review also omits a wonderful convenience of Phone Key: Driver profiles, which configure ALL driving, comfort and entertainment preferences automatically and instantly, not just seat and mirror positions. If this writer was the sole driver of their review Teslas, then they wouldn't appreciate this.
Every time I exit my Tesla, I wonder why cars haven't had door exit buttons all along. It seems like a trivial thing, but the small distance the door pops open nicely reduces physical effort to push it all the way open, to an extent I have to think it's an accessibility benefit for older and physically limited people.
As for the "minimalist" controls and touchscreen, I've come to love it, for a reason I didn't appreciate until I started daily driving the car. The genius of Tesla's unique design is that the only info and controls you need at any given time are contextually in view and reachable, 90 percent of the time. It's actually easier, not harder, to view and access what you need while driving, because everything that isn't relevant isn't cluttering the dash.
As for speedometer being just to the right instead of dead center view, my brain adapted to that within a couple days. As a regular driver of non Teslas as well, I can report my brain just knows from context where to look for speedometer. It's simply not "a thing" , and every Tesla owner I know says the exact same thing. Only non-owning reviewers seem concerned with this.
Overall, this writer's opinions about safety implications of the touchscreen are their own conjecture, and don't jive with my driving experience or those of other Tesla owners I know.
As for Car Play and Android Auto, having used both in rental cars on small and medium sized screens, I can't figure how anyone views them as comparable or preferable to Tesla's integrated infotainment. No cable or Bluetooth to connect, no source to select, a nice big bright screen, infotainment and driving controls seamlessly combined vs separate, etc. I can't imagine how anyone who can afford a new car these days, EV or otherwise, would grouse at $10/month for connectivity that just works instantly and always.
Lastly I also find the ride of my 2022 MYP to be remarkably quiet, with even subtlety pleasing motor sounds. Perhaps their cars didn't have the double pane window yet?
