Re: Subaru tops auto-braking tests; Jeep listed as "Basic"
I think it is designed to warn you and help with breaking ONLY IF you take action and apply breaks. I think it applies additional pressure to make sure that you are minimizing stopping distance.
That's my understanding of FCW. I wish there was an option that would apply the breaks before you have a chance to react. That way if you like it keep it on, if you don't turn it off. I think Jeep dropped the ball on this one.
