The new wireless charging points are a great convenience. But it makes it easier to accidentally leave your phone in the car as you leave. The car should detect that the phone used to open the car is still inside the car as the driver exits the vehicle and use the external speaker to remind them of this.
I own a 2019 Model 3 and installed the Tesla roof rack. I frequently put my bike on the rack. I would love the ability to have my car remind me that a bike is on top when I approach my garage so I don't accidentally drive into it. You would manually enable Bike-on-roof Mode. As you approached your home the dash would alert you to remember not to drive into the garage.
Tail lights should tell the drivers behind more than just braking, turning and the headlamps are on....
Add a new tail light section ( or incorporate with the existing tail light section ) that indicates:
Green - the vehicle is accelerating
Yellow - the vehicle is deaccelerating
Red - the vehicle is braking
- Could make another kind of "clicking" sound to passively let the driver know someone... more »
Tesla should enable Face ID and Touch ID for so no one can drive the car away if they are not the registered driver of that specific car. In the event of a theft the thief even if they break in they cannot drive the car away.

Right now reviewing sentry mode is so slow. For faster reviewing: Show 4-8 pictures of what triggered the recording. When you press on a picture it rewinds to 2 second before the trigger and starts the video there.
Even if sentry mode is off, if the car is bumped on moved. It should trigger a camera or video.
Add a map overlay so you know exactly where the event happened.
A few competing vehicles show a bird's eye view of the car when backing up. Its a great way to improve safety and increase awareness when in reverse.
Note: this is different thank showing the side and rear cameras.
Ability to turn off rear sensors if carrying bikes on a hitch mounted rear bike rack.
Develop a child/ pet safety alarm for children or pets left in cars unattended. This should be a sound alarm and phone call to customers and local emergency response services when sound or movement is detected inside a locked/ closed vehicle.
In addition to tilting the rear mirrors down when backing up, it would be helpful to show the side cameras when backing up on the display. Especially since the S/X is so wide, its helpful to see the curb when parking.
The idea would be to have the speed your car is traveling to be overlaid on the dashcam footage. This would be helpful for using dashcam footage for insurance footage or for disputing speeding tickets.
It would be nice if there was a way to communicate with other drivers in a less one-dimensional way by having a "friendly" horn sound option. A really good example is this video:
