If it causes similar accidents, you certainly will hear those complaints. As it appears to be similarly unrestricted as to when and where it can be used as A/P is, I expect we'll start to hear about some in the not too distant future. From reading reviews, it's lane-keeping ability suffers similar problems to A/P.
Go test drive a tesla. Try it out for yourself first before you stuff your foot any further in your mouth.
Why would driving a Tesla affect my views on how A/P can cause accidents, when it (or any other assistance system currently available) obviously can? After all, the whole point of such assist systems is to remove me from some of the driving. If I'm not solely driving the car, then I'm not solely responsible for any accident that A/P causes. Same goes for Propilot or any other such system. The reviews of Propilot indicate that it too can wander in the lane or cross double yellow lines (especially on sharp curves) , just like A/P has been documented to do. As I've written repeatedly, I have absolutely zero intention of trusting my life to any L2 or L3 system, and will wait until L4 has been well proven in service before I will do so.
Meanwhile, I think this is the best comparo of A/P and Supercruise I've read, and while I think Supercruise is the winner for the typical driver, I still wouldn't trust my or anyone else's safety to either of them: http://www.thedrive.com/tech/17083/the- ... ad-to-head
