I had seen other people concerned that they had a bug that wasn't allowing it to work properly. I actually mentioned the exact same situation that I got the old style FCW to freak out.... but of course I don't recommend playing with it. All it takes is an unpredictable moron in front of you to cause and issue.

Totally Glad to hear that it DOES do the job thought. Thx!

I have it set to far and it kicked in at a distance further than I expected, but was the perfect distance for me to respond if I was distracted. They way it braked made the whole car shudder, they were definitely smart with the braking style they chose.

Of course, I wouldn't recommend people test it, but I had the perfect situation of no other cars on the road and a four lane feeder, so there was no way I was going to crash :-). And I do like to push limits sometimes!

Re: FCW - ACC and Collision Mitigation what it is NOT

It might be nice if we could change the audible warning to something different.

Like a female voice shouting: "Collision Alert! Evade! EVADE!!"

Ya but it needs to be the voice of the angry lady at the airport asking you to step forward

Mine went off on a twisty mountain road, just from coming around a cliff blocked corner with a bicyclist in the traffic lane [resulting in the bike being almost perpendicular to direction of motion].

Oddly, a few miles later on Peak to Peak, it didn't do anything when a young female moose strolled across the road just barely ahead of me.

The Jeep expert salesman at my dealership (take that at what you may), said that the sensors are primarily for detecting cars (aka metal), so someone walking, or a moose in your case, will most likely not set it off. This may explain the cyclist setting it off, but not the moose.
