REVIEW: 1,000 Miles on Autopilot
Read one man's story about using Tesla's Autopilot to travel from Boston, MA to Chicago, IL
We love to hear stories about people's autonomous vehicle experiences. Right after Thanksgiving, we saw this tweet:
Intrigued, we asked Peter to rate his trip. Peter was driving a 2017 Tesla Model X. Below are the ratings he gave for this specific trip (out of 5 Stars possible):
How Safe I Felt: 4.5 Stars
Reliability: 4 Stars
Ease of Use: 5 Stars
I'd Recommend this Car to Family or Friends: 5 Stars
Overall Experience: 4.5 Stars
We also asked Peter if he experienced any problems:
"Travelled from Boston, MA to Chicago IL. I major issues(sic). Only issue was during a construction zone and it was raining heavily. Had to turn off autopilot for a few minutes.
Finally, we asked Peter to give a brief overview of his experience:
"Very good. Arrived surprisingly relaxed. After driving straight through."
We want to thank Peter for sharing the details of his experience with us. Although it wasn't perfect, the fact that he was able to make it almost 1,000 miles on Autopilot is absolutely incredible.
We continue to gather ratings from driverless car experiences. If you have one to share, we'd love to hear from you. Please click here to share your experience.
