Re: Advanced Warning/ACC Group Question

You don't *have* to use the adaptive cruise. You can just disable that capability when you'd rather go rather quickly. IMO, if you're going fast enough for a detector to be useful, you're better off not "checking out" of driving to the point where the vehicle itself is managing your speed.

Re: Advanced Warning/ACC Group Question

According to the sticky the technology package won't be in production until December. Does that mean we won't get our jeeps if we ordered Adaptive cruise control until late December or even January?!?

Re: Advanced Warning/ACC Group Question

Look for a well equipped 300C to test the adaptive cruise control feature.

Look for a well equipped Town & Country to test Blind Spot / Rear Cross Path features.

Re: Advanced Warning/ACC Group Question

The sticky with updates up top says the forward collision warning and side warnings won't go into production until DECEMBER!!! That means I could be waiting for my car until January! I'm stopping by my dealer tomorrow. If that is the case, I'm cancelling that part of the order.

That's exactly what I'm thinking about doing. Thats crazy that they would open up ordering for an option that is that dang far from production.

Re: Advanced Warning/ACC Group Question

wow didnt think about that. I had an order for one without, then reordered to have the tech package. But if the tech package wont come until Jan...I might have to jump on the one I initially ordered.

Re: Advanced Warning/ACC Group Question

I went to the dealer today hoping to test drive the ACC on a 300C. Unfortunately they didn't have ACC on the only 300C in their inventory. They told me their orders are on a 60 day cycle, and if the manufacturer accepted the order, which they did, then it shouldn't be too long a wait for the ACC and FC warning. They told me changing the order won't speed up delivery by much. I don't know if what they told me is accurate.... They don't even know if I can still change me order. So far, I'm in "C" status.

I ordered a green Overland with light interior before the saddle interior was available to be ordered with green. A few days later it was possible to order green with saddle and I wanted to change my order. The order was C status at the time and the dealer could not change the order through his ordering system, nor could he cancel the order. The dealer spoke with his factory rep the next day and the rep was able to change the order. The VON stayed the same.

Re: Advanced Warning/ACC Group Question

Took delevery of my 5.7L Limited w/Tech Pkg. yesterday. So far everything is good after 120 miles.

I put the ACC to test by setting the cruise ctl. to 60mph on a local interstate with moderately heavy traffic flow. Stayed in the right lane so traffic entering would merge in front of me. (enterances are 1/4 - 1/2 mi apart here). I was impressed with how the system reacted!
The GC decelerated and applied the brakes as if I were doing it myself!
Depending on the speed difference of the car merging in front, the GC decelerated and the brakes applied themselves anywhere between lightly to moderately heavy.

When the car in front accelerated or changed lane, mine resumed speed unless there was another car going slower than the preset.

The blind spot warning worked well also. When a car on either side passed, the indicator came on as soon as it approched the blind spot.

I haven't used the collision warning yet. I assume it will work as good as the ACC as it is on the same system.

Re: Advanced Warning/ACC Group Question

Bob, I picked up my Overland with the Tech group just a few days ago also. Like you I found all the systems work very well. The only one I am confused about the the front collision warning.

Is that something that only works when the cruise is on or should it be working all the time? It's pretty hard to see if it's working but I have purposely came up pretty fast on the rear of a car in front of me but never got a warning.

Any thoughts?

Thanks
