Owners say You would not dare to ban Elon's Autopilot! https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/red-hands-of-shame.77954/page-2 S4WRXTTCS, green1 said: ↑ You keep claiming that the NHTSA has SECRETLY ordered Tesla to disable things on peoples cars. Either provide the statement from the NHTSA, or agree that Tesla is doing this of their own accord. The NHTSA tends to work WITH manufactures they give the manufacture a chance to comply with what they "recommend" without OFFICIALLY ordering them to do anything. US corporations HATE regulation, and tend to bend over backwards to avoid it. In the US you can't even watch a Viagra commercial without part of the ad being dedicated to saying that it won't prevent STD's. Like how in the world would I even get it in my mind that it would? green1 Alberta, Canada New If you want the added hold wheel nags, feel free to install the downgrade. There is nothing stopping you from doing so. I'm just pointing out that I don't have to. And that Tesla has no legal ability to force me to do so. They are free to change the way things work for new owners, but they have no legal ability to make ANY changes whatsoever to someone else's property without that person's express consent. In fact that is almost guaranteed to be the whole reason why you have to accept software updates manually. They have the ability to push them automatically, but their lawyers probably didn't want to deal with the legal fallout of that one, this way they can show you consented. There has never, in the entire history of automotive transport, been even a single time when the government has forced owners to comply with an official recall, they certainly won't be forcing it for something that they won't even go on record as having required. Enjoy your nags. It's your choice.
