Better Model Y suspension or adjustable

Love the model Y, but we feel every bump in the road, very stiff. Definitely not a luxury feel. Can the suspension be improved in future models or make it adjustable like I assume model X has? There are a lot of dirt roads in NH, not comfortable to ride on. Our Subaru Outback is more comfortable on bumpy roads. Luxury car should have luxury ride. Smooth road...it is a smooth ride.

Dog Mode Enable rear seat vent - Model 3

Dog Mode appears to turn off rear seat vents. Since my dog is always in the rear seat if I am not in the car, this is counter intuitive.

In Dog Mode - the rear seat vents should either force the rear seat vents on - or at the very least - leave the rear seat vents in whatever state they were last set which would allow the driver to decide how they want the rear seat vents to operate in dog mode.

In my experience, without... more »

Winter driving mode

Have a button on the screen when temperatures fall below e.g. 4 degrees C to set winter mode: reduce regen brake, chill mode on, and whatever other settings improve safe driving on ice and snow.

 

Edit:

-set wipers up higher (like service mode) so the wipers can be kept warm and don't freeze

Select on/off for passenger and driver vent

recently an update made it so when just the drive is in the front, the passenger vent is turned off for efficiency sake. Sometimes it doesnt work tho, if something is sitting in the front passenger seat. Also, my girlfriend remarked that she just wanted her side off, because she didn't want air blowing at her. I realized that neither side can turn off the air vent, you have to just point the air stream way out of the... more »

Learning Mode

Learning mode acts more like a video game and car doesn't move but controls do.

Teens can learn driving by using steering wheel, break accelerator, blinkers etc., Screen can provide different driving situations (city, highway, hilly roads and night driving etc.,) and guide the teen to react appropriately to certain situations. This should help the teen master basic handling of car components (steering, break etc) ) and... more »

Model 3 switch to Standard mode when accelerating in Chill mode

For the Model 3 it needs to be much simpler to switch from chill mode to standard mode when you want to overtake quickly. I much prefer to drive in chill mode as I find it is a much nicer journey experience for the rest of the passengers, but it would be great if Tesla could get the car to detect the accelerator being depressed fully and automatically switch to standard mode until it is eased off, then revert to chill... more »

Turn off air conditioning when parked and a door is opened

The default setting of a Model 3 is to turn on air conditioning when openening a door of a parked car, or to keep it on when opening the door from inside after driving and parking. This seems to be a waste of energy, and also it is noisy outside, and it seems to add unnecessary start/stop cycles to the air conditioner.

This makes especially no sense when I put the kids on the back seats, because that turns on the air... more »

Airport Mode

Have a mode that reduces vampire consumption to the bare minimum, updating the server side of the app with SOC and vehicle state once per day, and shutting off remote access and other background features consuming power otherwise.

Include a special cabin overheat that purges hot air once or twice, mid-day, if enabled.
