If I pay 50 grand for a fully loaded vehicle, and the vehicle comes with a 'forward collision warning system', I expect it to pop up a warning at least once out of the multiple times idiots slam on their brakes in front of me on the freeway. Bottom line is, the system does not work or warn me under any circumstance UNLESS I am in adaptive cruise control mode, then it works. Techs at dealerships are incompetent and refuse to fix something if it does not trigger the common error when they run a systems test via a scanner.
There are many other people with the same issue. My point of view is jeep should give it a further look. But who am I to be quick in blaming them when the message board hippies dismiss so easily as well. Common minds think alike I suppose.
At any rate, I am taking the vehicle in this Saturday and will probably get the same diagnosis of 'well we scanned it and there are no errors so it must be just fine'. Well then, how exactly is it a 'FCW system' when you are going 70mph and someone fully slams on their brakes in front of you due to an 18 wheeler blowout and zero warnings go off whatsoever while you barely clip their bumper pulling into the emergency lane to avoid a collision? Does not sound like a working system to me.....
back at y'all non believers!
