Re: My Jeep almost killed me today?

I have mine set to mid (the default) and haven't had any problems or false warnings so far.

I don't particularly 'self identify' as an FCA product, or any brand of vehicle for that matter. I prefer male, human.

And I wasn't referring to you but now I am. It's a bit dramatic to claim a false braking experience would kill you. It doesn't even apply 100% of the brake power.

If we could chose a way to die, mine certainly wouldn't be in a vehicle. Not even a lambo.

Hey I never said I wanted to die, I pictured myself doing like 206 mph in a mall parking lot trying to time travel then just hitting the side of
Jc penny's

That can't happen now that I have kids. No room for car seats

You need a Delorean for that.

Apparently, they are going to be made again... ...although there's little guarantee they can get the time travel function to work.

With one of these, you can do anything...

I think you have bigger problems than the FCW system.

Re: My Jeep almost killed me today?

Hence I want nothing to do with a stupid computer taking control of my vehicle brakes, steering, or engine the hell with all that crap. There should be a retard driver delete option when ordering.

If you don't want FCW, ACC, blind spot detection, etc, you can simply disable them/not use the function. I am a strong fan of enabling personal preferences in vehicles, though I do use all those features on my Jeep.

Cross-path detection can't be disabled. I generally appreciate that function, with the notable exception of when it alerts that a vehicle is crossing the path *in front* of the Jeep while my vehicle is backing into a parking spot. That "ZOMG! There's a car crossing in front of you while you're backing away from that location!" alert is brain-damaged and distracting... especially because it's the same tone as the alert for rear cross-path detection (which is a true warning rather than a false alarm).

Distractions are dangerous. FCA can't even get my radio working properly so naturally I don't trust these Star Trek systems to take over my brakes, steering, and throttle. The manufactures are getting way out of control with this crap and rushing it to market before the stuff is ready. I'm a software engineer, 25 years experience I know crap software when I see it.

The parking sensors in bumpers, that's an example of a good idea well executed. Ditto for reverse cameras another great feature. GPS navigation also awesome I'm not anti-technology. But these systems that take over the throttle, brakes, and steering that's a really bad idea. I have had traction control take over my vehicle and nearly wreck me in a Toyota and if this system is that retarded in what was a simple situation well no thanks.

I agree with all of this. I turn off every system I can. I don't want the vehicle making decisions for me.
