For those of you that have the adaptive cruise control. What do you think of it?
It works, but as with all things technology based, it has its quirks and is only really useful in light traffic (otherwise, if someone pulls in the lane between you and the car you are "following" you will slow down rather quickly. Likewise, if the car you are following moves out of your lane the engine will rev and you will jump ahead to your normally set speed (if you were going slower than that because of the car you were following).For those of you that have the adaptive cruise control. What do you think of it?
I'd disable the lane sensor for sure. LOL Yeah, maybe I'm a control
freak when it comes to driving... hahaha Too many cars jumping out
in front of me around here.
On the subject of lane sense I had issues with it on my 2019 after 2,400 miles took awhile before it got corrected , at the time I told the service manager I'm in no hurry because not a fan of it, that was then now I use it most of the time
Guess I'm an old school guy slowly adjusting to new school :grin:
1.5 car lengths far too close. Recommended minimum distance is 3 second gap.The ACC works great in my 2014 TH. Too great. Unfortunately it leaves about 1.5 car lengths between me and the pacing vehicle which I call the "a$$hole". This is where cut-off assholes will squeeze in and then the Jeep will readjust, rapidly, freaking out he people behind me. In crowded conditions I have to turn it off. On long road trips where everyone is pacing themselves, its fantastic.
This is the part of driving automation that concerns me. People putting so much trust in the automation that they aren't paying attention to the fact that they are covering 102 feet a second on the Freeway at 70 mph. I find it amazing that Tesla drivers continue to kill themselves or total their cars because they are putting 100 percent trust in the automation. Yikes.
