Re: In Praise of the Adaptive Cruise Control

I had a close mishap when taking my '14 on a test drive. I was merging left onto the highway from an on-ramp and was taking a little too long to look over my shoulder because of the huge window sticker in the rear window and heard the "Hey, idiot! BRAKE!" alarm and looked up to see a wall of brake lights in front of me. In addition to giving me a much-needed heads up, it also charged the brake system, so the brake pedal only had to move about as half as far as it usually does. I was able to brake and steer at the same time with ease, as well as any sedan I've ever owned.

Needless to say, I bought the Jeep.

Tony

Yes, this is a feature of the ACC. When using regular CC the speed picks up when going downhill.

Re: In Praise of the Adaptive Cruise Control

I also like the ACC. Occasionally I "forget" that it's functioning and find myself going a little slower (if I'm thinking about some deep subject or something, LOL) but otherwise, I'm totally pleased. I really missed it last weekend when we took my wife's Outback Limited to a Wedding up-state!
