I frequently park in a carpark that has a fairly steep uphill driveway on to a main road and then a righthand turn across the road. When I first got mine I would sit there with my foot on the footbrake and then try and take off when a gap in the traffic appeared. Due to the lag I would push harder and harder on the acelerator until unitl all of a sudden it would take off really fast nearly launching me into space on the other side of the main road. Interesting, as it is an hotel carpark, I was always hopeful the police weren't around in case they thought I was DUI.

The other time the lag effects me is when I am reversing the caravan into a caravan park site. If I have stopped and then am asked to move slightly further back, the lag has caused the whole thing to suddenly go backward - too far in one case and I hit a post behind something I have never done before in some 30 years of caravaning.

Having said that it is by far the best tow vehicle I have ever had performance wise much better than my chipped up 3.0 ltr Patrol which I thought was a marvellous stepup from the old 4.2 ltr Patrol.

I will now try turning off eco and perhaps hill start, though my wife absolutely loves that feature.

The Eco is an easy off just drive in sport mode, turns off Eco.

For most, I think they simply have no idea that they have dropped 10Kmh+ for no good reason, for newer cars with big digital displays, I think they are simply blind and just lucky as hell they are going in a straight line.
HA HA

Sounds like the your problem is with people that just don't pay attention , and there are plenty of those. A good proportion of Australian drivers aren't too attentive in my opinion, especially those ones that like to wear Maroon.

What annoys me is 2 drivers both on their cruise control driving side by side at 109kph with the "overtaker" just inching past and blocking both lanes totally oblivious to their surroundings.

In years gone by, I used to commute between Sydney and various places in VIC/ NSW/ QLD and I clocked up thousands and thousands of km on highway.
I did use cruise control in country Victoria but mainly because there were police waiting out there, and it is dead flat and empty.

Back then I was the one who on the Hume, came up behind you and "the other guy" both sitting at 109kph, and sat behind in the right lane until you got out of my way and then I'd disappear into the distance.

Maybe I wasn't the model ideal driver but I pay attention.
OK... so did get the occasional fine, the worst one was somewhere 300k west of Townsville when i had the cruise control set to 129 kph.


Nowadays, I don't commute on any of the tollways or highways, mostly I do all suburban or into the city or the airport and mostly in traffic so not suited to using cruise control anyway.

My beef with standard cruise control in general is it isn't smart enough. (I have never tested the "ACC" type with the front sensor).
The standard cruise control cannot read the road ahead.
It can't read the traffic ahead or anything coming up behind you either
It's only really OK when the road is a flat freeway with little or no traffic and no hills.

As soon as the undulations come up, the speed tends goes up and down like an ass in a brothel anyway, with the car still accelerating on the crest of a hill or slowing unnecessarily on a gentle downhill. On automatic cars i've had in the past the car loses maybe 10kph on an uphill before it kicks down and then runs over to 10kph+ overspeeding.

With me at the controls on the highway (typically towing) I can keep it at a relatively constant speed, and prompt the box to change 7th - 8th - 7th either with the foot or the paddles.

To be honest I haven't used the Jeep's cruise control enough to see if it is any good in those sort of conditions. But... given the that the gearbox seems to select the wrong gear at slow speeds up and down hills, i don't know about that.


I tell you what, next time I'm on the highway (maybe going down to the snow), I'll give it more of a test out.

At least now it does work when selected. It still over-runs on hill descends slightly but heaps better with the latest tranny update (only good thing to say about that update) with it only shifting back to 7th on over-runs. This has made it a lot smoother operation picking the over-run up earlier. It used to over-run at 110kph by 8 or more then chuck it back to 6th when it throttled off. I don't tow in cruise but it has always been in the correct gear from my experience, other than descends. Hopefully the tranny update putting it in 8th earlier hasn't stuffed things.

The cruise is great. Obviously the adaptive isn't quite human, but it doesn't a pretty good job. I only wish the controls were a little more tactile, so operating them by feel could be a little bit easier.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

Steve (1307) as you have replied, it is clear you were not crushed, for that I am bitterly disappointed. I live in hope for the day I read the headline. We will post it in the Jeep in the Media thread.

For cars with cable actuated accelerators and low torque, yes they can be unreliable for hills, but that is why drivers should still use their brain and apply extra throttle or brake as required.
For cars with electronic throttle and decent torque, this should be less of an issue as it can respond quicker, if the transmission is programmed correctly.
My Falcon (FG II LPi) with the 6 speed, doesn’t need to be touched except for going up extremely steep hills. Sure it varies a little on all hills, but far less than I find most drivers, again, I can apply throttle if required.
For the geep, it isn’t short on torque, the only issue is on descents and its reluctance to drop a gear to maintain the set speed. I find my foot on the brake fixes this, as it would for you and everyone else not using CC. The TSB for ECO off, is also supposed to fix this “Less than desired engine braking during downhill descent.”
My GC is getting serviced on Monday and I have asked for this to be applied. Assuming A – They actually do the service and B - they apply the TSB as requested, I will check if this fixes the decent issue next weekend. I have little faith in A or B happening though, fkn Waitara.

My main gripe for the Commodore (they fixed the thumb pinching hand brake) is it’s idiotic CC stalk that requires you to take your hand of the wheel to engage. That and the V6 is gutless.

Steve (Barboots) agreed, I love the buttons on the Falcon, very positive that you have engaged, and well positioned. The GC, not so much, and I think the button layout is incorrect.

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I use the CC a hell of a lot, especially on reasonably flat roads.....
In fact, I HATE driving any car which doesn't have a good CC.

And I also totally agree with Steve re people NOT paying attention.
That causes more prangs than most other driving mistakes put together. My pet hate is the police targeting a few Klms over the limit- easy $$$$, but then they totally ignore all the other horrendous driving habits incl tailgating.
I had a B double about a metre off my tail in an 80 zone the other day, and I was doing about 85 -as fast as I dared go in case of police radar. Grrrr

Yeah, that is one thing I have changed about my driving style, trying to keep no more than 5km over the speed limit with all the radars and cameras around and the tolerances being reduced. But some want to do 20 over the limit, so sit up your arse!

Sure if there is an overtaking lane, I'll move over....

Notice significant difference with Cruise control when in sport mode..... Much better at maintaining speed both up and down hill....little to no overrun down hill in sport mode

fkn Waitara.
Two new sales people at Waitara - been there 1 week and 3 weeks respectively as of yesterday. Why is it that on the very rare occasion I call into a Jeep dealer the sales people have only been there for a nano second? And the blokes at Waitara, while pleasant enough, know nothing about Jeeps and are in for a steep learning curve.

Don't ask why I was at Waitara - long story. I was looking for the Ford dealer - honest!!
