We've heard about the feature that gets you all excited; now let's hear about the one that, in your opinion, is completely useless.
My theory is that this switch is for convenience so you can fire up the defroster without getting in the car and tracking a bunch of snow in, actually seems like a pretty good idea. I've never needed to use it though.
- The max defrost switch near the lighting controls. Max defrost is always available on the main UI, so its redundant. This should be traction-control on/off on regular MMe, like the GTs have.
Disagree on the pushbutton door mechanism. That's one of the features that works as designed. Yes, there is a small aero gain and why give that up?Top for me though is the pushbutton door opening mechanism. Not sure if that counts as a "useless" feature, because I obviously use it at least once per trip. But it's a useless advance in technology compared to a simple door handle you can just pull open. (I'm sure it's aerodynamic, but so is Tesla's.)
I find that the pushbutton is useful. Sometimes I leave my phone in the car, and rather going back into the house, I use the buttons to open the door and retrieve my phone.Agree with propulsion sound and the "low gear". Also the animated graphic in the instrument cluster that looks like random waves.
I've tried BlueCruise but haven't found it useful yet.

How did you go from needing the frunk release to NOT? I have a 2021, and I've lost track of how that transition would take place or if my vehicle is even eligible? 2nd key fob too, totally lost track of this stuff...but LOVE the car!!I love the frunk, even more so now that I can actually open it without yanking on the lever in the car.
My responses are similar to others:
Propulsion sound is useless - can't even hear it.
Phone charging, absolutely useless with my iPhone 13 Pro (camera bulge), barely useful with my wife's iPhone 12 mini. (Yes, I have had the update applied). Would be useful if it worked.
Games, YouTube, etc - I don't charge at fast chargers so YMMV and I won't buy the streaming service. I guess keeping up with Tesla.
Alexa - remains to be seen if this will be useful (she tells better jokes than Siri)
