Without any report (?) on the circumstances of this model 3's fire, or any statements re model 3 pack flammability by TSLA, this post adds no useful information to the discussion.

Ahhh, let's talk about ACC for a bit. Maybe I'm just strange, but I really loved the LEAF's ACC. I found it pretty much did exactly what I would do with regards to fan speed and direction of airflow. So in my LEAF, HVAC was always on AUTO (unless I had to turn on defrost which would NOT do the right thing and keep heat going to the feet as well). But in general I was very pleased with it (despite hearing all the stories to the contrary and always using manual controls before then). <snip details of Model 3 climate controls>

T Minus Forty-Five Minutes—and Counting
. . . Let me explain something you're not going to believe, but trust me on this. After having driven and tested perhaps 7,000 vehicles, sometimes I don't need to drive very far to get the idea.
Remember that freeway onramp we "missed" before Nelson took the wheel? It's a sweet 700-foot short-chute that whips into a right-hander I know very well, and I wasn't going to simply wait for the next freeway entry. "Hang on," I'd told everybody, whipping a U-turn and stamping the accelerator. Even with four aboard, the Model 3 DMP surged ahead so startlingly that it stopped conversation. Except maybe for an uttered "Oh my god." I braked pretty hard and arched up the on-ramp toward the freeway. It was a flourish more akin to swiping a navigation route on your phone than driving a car on the actual road. Carol might have been upside down by the time I backed off.
In maybe 120 wheel revolutions, a high-performance hierarchy has been rattled. The European marques perennially atop the sport sedan podium are about to have trapdoors release beneath them. Although nothing has fundamentally changed with the car's steering or suspension (besides an imperceptible but CG-lowering 5-10mm drop in ride height), the dual motor and all-wheel drive give the compact Tesla a tensed, hair-trigger potency for leaping ahead or around whatever's in the way. It's pure jungle cat. Our testing to come will explore whether its lighter Brembo brakes stop better and how much the now in-house vehicle control software lets Tesla directly tune the car's handling poise (without a supplier interpreting it). A track mode, which is still in development, dials up regenerative braking to lessen heat load on the friction brakes.
Speaking of software, Tesla's all-in attitude regarding its controversial big-screen driver interface has backpedaled a bit toward implementation of some physical controls. For instance, now a quick burst of windshield wiping requires just a depression of the left stalk (its screen-control actuator is now easier to engage, too); adjusting the adaptive cruise control can be done with dialing or laterally toggling the steering wheel's right scroll wheel. And on the screen itself, virtual buttons for more regularly accessed functions have been slid closer to the driver. . . .
