Automatically slows the car down if you run up on a slower driver. Can adjust the following distance as well. Closest it will go is about 50 feet.

Even at the farthest away setting it was still too close at 70 80 miles per hour.

I don't think the SRT had steering assist I can't remember now. But I drove it in something and I felt it fighting back a couple of times and I didn't like it

----------

Another thing I didn't like about the adaptive cruise control is it allowed enough room for people to cut in front of you and then it would slow you down pretty quickly depending on how close they cut in and if somebody was tailing you they could possibly not be paying enough attention to slow down in time

I may not have the distance measurement right but the adaptive on the lincolns gives plenty of room. Might be more than 50 but I normally ride closer than that. We had a customer complain their car slows down on its own on the highway with the cruise on. Finally figured out what it was and they were pissed they couldn't ride up someones ass was all it was. They had it on the highest setting. Honestly don't know why people buy vehicles if they don't know how to use the features

It's more reliable than a person driving imo, new technology shouldn't be scary...

This has 4 different settings for distance, and the middle gives plenty of room. Plus hit the gas pedal and you override the system. The lane departure warning I leave on all the time. The lane keep assistance I was just messing around with last night. These are great features imo and should help reduce accidents

The thing of it is, if used as intended (as assists), it's great. The problem is that the majority of the general population are lazy fuckwits. Just like the guy with the tesla that was sleeping in traffic. People will depend on it and it'll prolly do the opposite. Lol

No. No and it's not about "scary". It's is about the joy, delight AND the responsibilities of driving which can never be fully experienced unless a human being is in full control of the vehicle. Jalopnik really had a glimpse into the future when they branded toyota as beige transportation appliances but they didn't mention that the beige concept was contagious, like a wicked flu that knocks you down for a month. Just give it a few more years and children will be trained to like beige with tricycles that avoid the rut between the sidewalk and a lawn and the potential for an rollover accident. IMO, it a person is so unwilling as to devote their full attention to driving for whatever reason, call a cab or Uber.
