However, these flaws are minor ones that do not cause much concern. The braking distance was the big issue that was of concern to the consumers using it.

Fisher, the director of Consumer Reports has appreciated Tesla for making the immediate changes and through sophisticated measures. Updating track performance through over-the-air measures has to be truly appreciated, says Fisher.
