It works a lot like my wife. If it thinks you are going too fast relative to the car in front of you, it will let you know, even if you already saw it and were going to miss it anyway.

Re: collision warning

Do you not get the front parking sensors in the USA ?
They are standard on the Overlands here in Australia, as is the rear sensors and camera. Come to think of it, I am pretty sure that the f/r sensors are standard across the range.

You're not using the switches correctly.

EVIC setting only activates the Auto High Beams if the light switch is in the 'Auto' position AND the stalk to the left of the steering wheel is pressed to its forward position.

Even if EVIC is set to Auto High Beams, you can rotate the light switch to the rightmost position (i.e. headlights 'On'), then control the high and low beams manually with the stalk.

You don't have to stop the vehicle and alter EVIC settings.

Re: collision warning

Hey Guys! I just posted a similar question around the Forward Collision Warning system on a separate thread. Wish I found this one. I've been trying to obtain specs from Chrysler and from the dealership on exactly how this system should function and no one can provide it to me. I'm really riding them to get these details...can't believe a service department doesn't have this information...how can they fix it ever if they don't know how it's supposed to work?

At any rate, I've discovered that it only works on stationary objects and to be honest when it's almost too late! Requires some quick reaction time to ensure you don't get into an accident - far cry from being an avoidance mechanism. :-) A sleepy driver would be buried under the back of a truck, for sho! Then again, that's probably Darwin's theory at its best.

Long story short, I think the guys didn't get it right. I've looked up the federal guidelines for Collision Warning systems and this one definitely isn't working accordingly, in my opinion. I could be missing some details, again because I have no idea how it's configured to work.

If anyone can truly confirm that it works without fail and can replicate the behavior would love to hear from you. I have not been able to reproduce on any moving targets....probably pissed a lot of people off accelerating into their rear ends at high speeds! :-)
