Same here, was caught off guard one day when the car I was following decided to take a right turn, '' The JEEP '' did not think I was far enough...so it braked...man, I almost had a heart attack! That was the last time it did that! Now, I just get annoyed by the SUPER loud BIP! BIP! BRAKE ! indicator...

To me, the same thing happened virtually 3 minutes after I took delivery from my local dealer. A car took the left turn lane and the initial "cool, the system works"-feeling was immediately followed by a "WTF just happened?"-experience a second later when the Jeep braked automatically although my lane was free and clear...

That was the one and only time I witnessed the complete system 'in action' before the system went bad and I started to get the 'limited functionality'-message. Since it was actually working on day one, I truly believed it would be just a temporary issue so I waited before having it fixed.
