Influential U.S. magazine Consumer Reports said on Wednesday it was recommending Tesla Inc's Model 3 sedan after its latest tests showed that a firmware update improved the car's braking distance by almost 20 feet. A previous test - the results of which were released a little more than a week ago - found that it took 152 feet for the Model S compact auto to stop from 60, the longest braking distance of any modern vehicle the magazine has tested.
Consumer Reports has finally given Tesla's Model 3 a passing grade following the rollout of a software update that improved the car's stopping distance during emergency brake testing. CR said that with the fix, the vehicle braked from 60 miles per hour to rest in 19 fewer feet than before - putting it on par with Tesla's own estimation of a 133-foot stopping distance, a distance that CR said is "typical for a compact luxury auto".

Musk also suggested the car's 15-inch touchscreen display could receive an over-the-air update to make it easier to use.
It refused to recommend the vehicle - causing the firm to admit to a problem with its software and issue a firmware update within days.
'Road noise & ride comfort already addressed too. The braking issues kept CR from giving the Model 3 its recommendation. Tesla says the Model 3 will go from 60 miles per hour to a standstill in around 133 feet. 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".
