The day I picked up my GC Overland I used the ACC to drive for four hours and I found it to be smooth and it exceeded my expectations. It was set a little conservative on distance but I'm fine with that. I'm glad that I ordered it. As for cost, it is part of a package with cross path warning and blind spot warning. It is fairly reasonable for all three. All aspects work as well as I could have hoped. My young daughter loves the blind spot warning.
The package is a bargain compared to BMW who charges $2,400 just for the active cruise control on their X5. They don't even offer blind spot or cross path warning on the X5.
Great for long road trips. Helps you stay relaxed and less fatigue.
Horrible for daily commute in DC metro area with traffic and bad drivers cutting you off. Everyone is in a hurry to get to work, and so am I. I'm glad i can switch to just regular cruise controll also. Good to have the choice!
I have to say I thought this feature would never be used and a waste of money... but I LOVE it now. It's so great to just cruise to work without worrying about accelerating and braking. I feel much more relaxed on my drive to work, probably saving gas money too vs speeding in and out of traffic. I just let the car take care of it. Well worth the price to me!
I have it on mine and love it. Funny story though. The wife and I were looking at infinity M series cars when we first started to look for a new vehicle. We were interested in one that they had on the show room and the salesman was explaining all of the features, including there version of ACC. We proceeded to test drive another M35 and I had the cruse set and we were coming up on a stopped car rather fast and I kept waiting for the ACC to slow the car down. It was only after I hit the brakes rather hard to keep us from a$$ holing the car in front of us that the salesman mentioned that the particular vehicle we were test driving didn't have that feature unlike the one that we were interested in. Moral of the story... make sure the vehicle you are in has the options you are trying to test out.
