I'll see if I can get in a near collision and test how good that warning is..
Time to go clean out my '05..kinda sad.
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.
