Re: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY GROUP (ADG) any reason to get it? Lower insurance rate?
Well then dont get it. Your the one that asked us if its useful and every single feature of that package is incredibly useful. I had the adaptive cruise/advanced warning package on my 2012 Overland and would never even think of getting another Overland without it. First reason because I love technology and gadgets. Secondly, because im buying a forty plus thousand dollar vehicle and its gonna be fully loaded. Third, because during the time I owned the Overland every single one of those features worked for me in some way or another. Blind spot monitoring was a VERY useful ALL THE TIME and was not intrusive whatsoever. Cross path detection warned me of a approaching vehicle coming while I was backing out of parking spots many times. And adaptive cruise control is just downright bad ass!!! (plus I use cruise control very often). IMO I dont know why someone wouldnt pay $1,500 for these options. You cant compare those features to back seat DVD players because those have nothing to do with the driver. I guess my point is I just dont see why someone would buy the latest and greatest advanced SUV but not get the features that make it "advanced". Like I already said, say 5 years down the road your trying to sell your basic Overland, I for one would not look twice at yours because you didnt get it with all the good stuff :-) Just get it, its $1500 bucks!
