Tesla CEO Elon Musk promptly took to Twitter to respond to the criticism, saying that the fault was likely due to an issue with the car's ABS calibration and that a software update would fix it. "Tesla won't stop until Model 3 has better braking than any remotely comparable auto", he said. During the magazine's retest of the vehicle, the Model 3 managed to hit a full stop from 60 miles per hour in 133 feet, a 19-foot, or roughly 13%, improvement over its previous braking distance of 152 feet.

Musk also suggested the car's 15-inch touchscreen display could receive an over-the-air update to make it easier to use.
"Braking & UI upgrades apply to all Model 3s". Road noise & ride comfort already addressed too. And it comes at a critical time for Tesla, which has struggled to ramp up production of the Model 3 and is facing pressure from unhappy activist investor groups to bring on more independent board members. CR's results seem to indicate that the update worked, though the publication noted that it doesn't quite live up to Musk's promise because, "the braking performance is not class-leading".
