Re: FCW+Brake saved me today

I've had FCW give the audible warning a few times, but it has only kicked in the brakes once as I was going through a crosswalk and it apparently detected a sign in the center of the road. Definitely caught me off guard, especially with the very distinct grinding feeling in the brakes. I've used ABS on my Jeep before, and it feels nothing like the braking did with FCW. I was impressed with just how much braking power it will apply; I had an Infiniti QX56 with active braking and it paled in comparison for overall automatic stopping power, but it was also kinda fun because it would just bring the vehicle to steady stop vs. the Jeep that seems to wait until the last second to do anything.
