I would like to share my experiences with the Adaptive Cruise control, after the vehicle was worked on for a collision repair.
As a customer, you have just picked up the family SUV after getting repairs from an accident, and you’re headed out for the weekend - a full tank of fuel, the car loaded with family -heading down the freeway for a weekend of memories. With cruise control on, radio playing, kids watching movies in the rear and hours of windshield time ahead you are relaxed and feeling good. Out of the blue, a deer comes across the road ahead of the car in front of you, they hit the brakes….at that moment, you have just reached to adjust the radio or eat some snacks….Will the adaptive cruise control react correctly? Will you and the vehicle slowdown in the moments ahead because the safety system functions correctly?
These are the moments when improved safety systems mean the difference of a great weekend, or a life changing accident.
Here’s how the system is supposed to work from the driver’s point of view.....
