If you say your car over compensates you don't understand the system. It is lane 'sense'. The wheel moves to help correct and alert the driver to take control. It is not a self driving car.

Did that.

High on one setting means how strong it turns the wheel.
Max on the other setting is how early it turns wheel.

There is nothing about Audible On or Off or Loud or Soft.

I didn't say it's a self driving car. If it was, then there wouldn't be an audible alarm, now would there?

Someone mentioned the Cherokee does set off an audible alarm. But I can't see how WK2 ever could. It shuts down before an alarm can sound.

I believe the "driver fatigue" aspect works. But the audible departure warning does not. It might, if the lanes were narrower.

I'm trying to confirm if all WK2s are like this or mine is not working correctly.

It feels the same as the Summit I test drove. And yeah I took my hands off the wheel on the test drive and told the salesman I was gonna do that. He didn't raise an eye brow and proceeded to explain where the different settings were.

If it did have an audible alarm you'd think there would be settings for it. Like how many corrections before it sounds and/or how loud like all other alarms.

I see, I figured the "warning" would be audible. Mine doesn't make any sound either but I prefer it that way.

Re: No audible Lane departure warning

Hey, I got it to work.

I didn't like testing with my hands off the wheel / let it steer at 70 MPH. So I would only test it at around 40 MPH.

At 65 MPH it actually stayed in the lane indefinitely. When it drifted to the right it would steer left and BEFORE it got to the left side it undid the correction and stayed in the center mostly. When at 40 MPH it would hit the other side.

The faster I went the better it did. I had all settings on default.

It did "drive itself" for a very long ways and finally an Audible alarm came on with text saying put your hands on the wheel.

Also did another 120 mile late evening trip that I usually can't make all the way and let my wife take over. I arrived bright eyed and bushy tailed. I don't even think I'll need coffee to make the trip any more (seriously). If this really holds true and not placebo affect, it was worth the upgrade (from 2015 Overland with Adv Tech) alone.

It's a lot like testing ACC for the first time. "Is it gonna stop, is it gonna stop" with you foot ready to slam the breaks if it didn't (or you didn't know how to turn it on). Lane assist is similar, is it gonna turn, is it gonna turn ready to grab the wheel if it doesn't.

We have a couple hour ride this weekend to take our kids to go ride thomas the train, I'll have to try it going faster. Normally we only try it while driving 50-55.

I did have my wife drive yesterday so I could push buttons and figure out how the ACC works, didn't take long. Two different symbols pop up, both white when on and both green when engaged. But they look completely different. I think before I was setting the cruise and trying to adjust the acc from there, instead of turning on the acc and hitting the set button. Trial and error I guess.

Re: No audible Lane departure warning

Good that you've got it sorted. It never occurred to me that you would test it without reaching minimum speed though. I just assumed you had done that. In Aust it is 60kms/hr. All makes sense now, the feedback from the vehicle that you reported prior.

It's a great feature. I have a very light hand on a wheel when driving the KL and enjoy the response from the vehicle adjusting into the lane. On the freeways (specifically down to Canberra), it it fantastic.

I was most certainly above minimum speed on all my testing. Minimum speed is 37 mph and I was doing 40-45. I may have even tried it at 55 MPH when it worked poorly. And as you know it clearly gives you feedback it was armed or not and it took action. It just doesn't work very good at lower speeds. It's either armed and takes action or not.

Re: No audible Lane departure warning

As mentioned, it does have the minimum speed of 37 MPH, it also needs clearly defined lines with no obstructions. I noticed while crossing bridges with little dividers on the lines, it wont work. It also won't work on the highway where those barriers for construction are on top of the lines. So basically it can't be relied on to always work, but it is a nice feature.

It also helps those with a bad habit such as my wife who never use their blinker, because it will fight you every time you try to change lanes and eventually drive you nuts enough to learn to use the blinker. I hate those drivers, lol.

I haven't seen any option for an audible notification. I keep mine set on the strongest correction setting with medium level response time.

I also have not noticed it canceling ever, I saw the posts above about that, and tested to see how many times it would correct over and over without touching the wheel and it appears that it will continue to go down the road appearing as you are drunk as a skunk bouncing off of the lane markers and not stop working.

It can steer around a very slight bend on a highway, but it can not turn around any bend that is not small. It will blow right over the line.

Re: No audible Lane departure warning

When it "blows over the line", I call that "cancel" (it stops fighting you and loses lock on the lane). The icon will go from green (locked), to yellow (correcting), to white (no lock). Then it will get a new lock.

There is an audible alarm with no adjustment.

I get that these systems are great for fatigued drivers... but where does common sense and responsibility come into play?
If a driver is fatigued (drunk) enough that he/she is having difficulty staying in their lane, then lets be honest, they should not be on the road.
My .02.
Now, the part about it fights you if you do not use the blinker. I agree that using the turn signals is proper, however, around these parts using your turn signal is a notification to others drivers to close the gap and squeeze you out. Yep, its a dog eat dog world out there. Don't think I'd enjoy fighting the rig just to drive to work and back on our freeways.
How does it behave when you need to swerve out of your lane to avoid debris on the road that the pick-up/semi in front of you straddled, but you are going to crush? Does it fight then too?

I purposefully ordered my Overland without blind spot, auto cruise and auto brake because I don't like the idea of having the vehicle drive for me.
Having read this, and other threads about the braking characteristics, I think I made the right decision for me... although the auto cruise has got to be nice.
Having said all that, depending on the responses, I might be convinced otherwise on my next purchase.

Re: No audible Lane departure warning

Mike, you don't have to "use" all those features, so if you had them, you could choose to enjoy ACC while not using the others. I will say, however, that blind-spot detection has saved my bacon multiple times on I-95 between here and DC when idjut drivers suddenly cross multiple lanes at high speed, often right after I've signaled a lane change and am checking in all directions that it will be safe. I'll not buy a vehicle without ACC at this point, too. It's a pleasure to have, even with the very occasional hiccup the errs to the side of safety.
