Re: WK2 DownUnder
Run up the back of a caravan.
After traveling at a 110km/h for 100km.
Came up behind a caravan slowing for a T junction.
ACC slowed me don nicely, then i started to brake lazily had only my big toe of my work boot on the brake.
Almost stopped 6' from the van then pressed a little harder to hold my jeep there.
And my foot slipped of hitting the accelerator (gas) engine revved like crazy, I held on waiting for the bang. NOTHING Jeep did not move, got my foot back on the brake, check my pants all OK heart pounding. Thinking what just happened, something beep and flashed on the EVIC did not see it. Did the collision avoidance kick in. "Enhanced Accident Response System (EARS)" "Forward Collision Warning (FCW)"
any way something disengaged that transmission and let the engine rev around 4000rpm, and saved me. Love my jeep.
Don't drive tyred,
Don't be complacent.
