What do you mean by "Assist 2"

I just tried it today for just a little bit.

I assume you had to not have your hand on the wheel and no blinker.

So I just pointed it slightly toward the other lane and let go.

When it got to the edge of the lane it gently nudged it back. Tried on both sides. No alarms went off. But I was not watching the dash as I was watching the road carefully incase it didn't take control.

Steering felt great. I don't know what mode it was in.

Sorry, did a cut and paste form the Jeep eBrochure on 2017. On the brochure there is a superscript 2, which after cut and paste turns into a regular 2. Unintended and not noticed until you pointed it out. Thanks.

Not sure what Lane Assist 2 means but I have a '15 KL with Lane Assist + (plus).

Assuming it is the same tech, I have tested it quite a bit and it performs well.

If road markings are clear either side and you remove your hands from the wheel, it will steer you back into the middle of the lane. It does this twice without any audible warning. On the third time, after steering you back, it mutes the music and issues a constant tone (not a beep, beep but a very annoying constant tone) and on the EVIC, issues the message to place your hands on the steering wheel.

As I said, I have tested it a fair bit and I like it. I have the Uconnect settings set to maximum input from the vehicle for that feature.

Because I have it set to max input, and because I have a very light hand on the wheel anyway, even under usual driving conditions, I feel the wheel turn under my hand. It's pretty cool and I do like it. It's not for everyone, but you can mitigate the feedback by selecting a lower input option through Uconnect (or of course, you can turn it off).

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

In other words, this system makes texting and driving even easier. I'm just kidding, I do like this feature and have tried it on other vehicles, obviously my 2015 High Altitude doesn't have that system.

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

We have Lane Departure Warning on our 2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited with EyeSight. I happen to like it. My better half (the primary driver) doesn't because she tends to get close to the lines on the narrower country roads around here. So it gets turned on when we travel in the vehicle and turned off for her normal driving routine. My next ride will have it.

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

You can download 2017 Manual Here it is fairly detailed how it works.
Jeep Owners | Download an Owners Manual 2004 - 2011 | Jeep

I've had more time to play with it.

It does not activate until over 37mph.

You have 3 sensitivity settings and 3 Warning Levels.

It works similar to ACC. In that there is an ICON on the Dash that turns green when it has a lock on the road. And will "Assist" if you drift with no signal. I think Yellow means it has a partial lock (only sees one line) and will only alert you and not assist.

Until I read the manual. I was learning by trial and error and I had turned it up to most sensitive and let go of the wheel and it was bouncing back and forth. If I kept my hand on the wheel on high sensitivity you can almost constantly feel a slight input. In medium mode you generally don't feel anything until you drift over the line (If it has a lock AND you are over 37mph).

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

It sure renders older radar detectors useless as the microwave frequencies the lane departure sensors use trigger constant false alarms on the radar detector.

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

I had this feature on my previous vehicle, a 2013 Ford Fusion. It was a pretty cool thing to experience but most of the time i drove with the system turned off. I don't know if the Jeep system is the same, but the Fusion would pretty violently fight me if I tried to change lanes and forgot my turn signal.

Jeep system doesn't cause much problem.

I've had about 4 different model radar detectors in them.

Escort 9500ix was OK
Escort STi-R+ was OK
Escort Max border line falses
Valentine One is OK with it's TMF2 filter enabled. Which is what I run now.

Somebody should fight you when you do that

Re: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist 2

After a few hundred miles of lane assist I'm a bit less optimistic about this feature and I'm not sure if I'm gonna leave it on. But I will give it more time.

This is the first lane assist car I have ever driven. I kind of expected it would behave like the Collision avoidance system and only in rare circumstances would it step in. This is NOT the case.

It really is an "assist" feature. Meaning it frequently is nagging you.

The problem is, "who's driving"?

I'll be driving along and say a car starts to pull over to turn off. This is on a two lane road (1 lane each direction). So as the car ahead slowed down there was no need for me to stop or slow down there was no cars coming so I moved over to pass so my tire was like right on the double yellow line. Suddenly the assistant nudged me BACK into the lane, into the other car I'm trying to pass !! It's a gentle nudge but it can catch you off guard. Imagine doing that and some kid grabbing the wheel and helping you steer. I've overreacted a few times too.

When testing it, if I cross the yellow line or white on the right enough, it just shuts down. So it doesn't feel like it would help all that much if say I dosed at the wheel or had a heart attack or something.

I've tried a whole bunch of settings. With the steering mode (which does effect it), there is actually 27 combinations to try !. I have since put everything back to "Normal" and medium which seems the best. I like comfort mode steering. But the assist feels stronger because in comfort mode you have a lighter touch on the wheel. I love the steering and the adjustment. But I'm not so certain about the assist.

I've yet to hear any audible alarm of any kind. If I don't yield it just shuts down, rather quickly.

I would not say I'm fighting it, but it's a lot like having another hand on wheel and you're never quite sure what the other hand is gonna do.

The self park is very cool. But I'll rarely use it. I might parallel park 2 times a year. But because of that I'm always rusty, so that might come in handy and save me from scuffing up a tire on a steep curb.
