I'll see if I can get in a near collision and test how good that warning is..

I think the Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path features are kind of cool. Typically use the mirrors before changing lanes anyway... and now you'll know if there's someone in your blind spot before you move over. Cross Path is basically the same, but works when you're in Reverse instead. The chime could get annoying though. Luckily you can turn the chime off.

I never use the regular cruise control, so the Adaptive Cruise Control isn't all that interesting to me. But at least it would supposedly stop WK2 drivers from rear-ending people if they're using cruise!

The Foward Collision Warning System is interesting... even though it doesn't really actually stop the vehicle. Just uses a camera in the front of the vehicle... and if it senses you're gaining on the vehicle in front of you too quickly, it displays a "BRAKE!" message in the EVIC.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

My Overland with Tech package is built, passed inspection, and is in t transit right now. I know I will like the blind spot warning....as I have had a few close calls over time.

The way I understand it....the chime wont sound until you light the warning in the mirror (someone is in your blind spot) AND then you put your blinker on to change lanes. Then the chime sounds. Good by me!!

The adaptive cruise should prove valuable too. The rest of the features are hard to know....but I will find out within a week or two.

Preventing one accident pays for the features.
