but made a very insightful comment
From one wife to another - that's not insightful, that's jumping the shark.
We've had our MY14 Overland CRD now for about 8 weeks - close to 3000kms now. The forward collision warning/mitigation system has had a work-out twice in that time. I'm not going into details but it worked exactly how it should have and both times avoided collision (coupled with human intervention of course after the warning and braking by the vehicle.) That's a very big BRAKE in your face indicator by the way on the dash.
What ever issues people are experiencing with their uConnect systems has no bearing on the safety features of the car.
As for our car, I love her (him, it, whatever you want to call it).
Husband complains about the air con system blowing hot air in his face - I never experience that issue (same issue that others report). I drive the car about 100+ kms each day without fail, he drives it whenever he needs to pick up diesel for his tractor. Go figure - I don't have an issue - he does. (???)
We will mention it to the dealer on the 10k checkup but for me - no, I have no issues with our Overland and I'm the one driving it 80% of the time.
And to even suggest the safety features are compromised because of some Uconnect issues - well.... I find that 'uninsightful' (if there is such a word).
