Close one - glad you didn't rear end him.
Here you would have been charged with "Following too close" resulting in Fine and demerit points. (minimum)

He was probably surfing Jeep Garage, his favorite website.

Re: Collision warning saved my life, and possibly time in Jail!

Doesn't the ACC apply the brakes as well?
I thought it supposed to slow you down, maybe not totally stopping you?

Not sure, it does in ACC mode, but not sure about if it applies brakes in avoidance of a collision. Can anyone answer that?

I love how people make stupid remarks without reading the entire thread. I love the internet. Rant over.

Re: Collision warning saved my life, and possibly time in Jail!

Brakes are applied only when adaptive cruise is on.

Forward Collision Warning — If Equipped
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) warns the driver of a potential collision with the vehicle in front of you and prompts the driver to take action in order to avoid the collision.
FCW monitors the information from the forward looking sensor as well as the Electronic Brake Controller (EBC), wheel speed sensors, i.e., to calculate a probable rear-end collision. When the system determines that a rear-end collision is probable a warning message (both audible and visual) will be displayed on the EVIC. When the system determines a collision with the vehicle in front of you is no longer probable, the warning message will be deactivated.


Even though I'm a perfect driver with reactions of a fighter pilot, it would be nice to help prevent my kids from being run over by a driver that doesn't have my skills, or one that's distracted.. by convincing more and more people to buy the option.

Re: Collision warning saved my life, and possibly time in Jail!

I know accidents happen, but driving while tired is pretty much as good as driving drunk. I have heard too many stories of people falling asleep at the wheel with results not as good as yours. Im not hear to preach anyone, but myself personally, I do not put myself in that situation.

Now back to the point of the story, I agree ACC is an amazing feature. I dont have a Jeep yet but if and when I do purchase one it will absolutely have the ACC package. Not only for the safety factor, but the adaptive cruise is downright bad ass!!

Volvo? it's a joke?

If the cruise is on, the GC brakes will be applied, otherwise only audio & visual indicators are used.

ACC should at least be an option on all new vehicles: I love it.
