accident avoid works I think?

Well I'm sure it can see in the fog better than me! I was doing 45, with NO Cruise control, when it beeped and I THINK it applied the brakes though I saw the white car with no lights on and hit the brakes maybe at the same time or a split second later......Stopped in time ! But all that junk I carry on the back seat is now on the floor! I'm impressed with it!

COOL

So, that worked when not on Cruise Control.

My EX Package only slows or stops when operating on Cruise Control. :-(

Have you tested it, Paul? I saw a brilliant idea to test it. A guy had a couple of empty large, thin boxes (think flat-screen TV boxes) that he tested against. He was testing the Subaru Impreza (the other car I'm torn over...) and it stopped every time. It's a good way to test the car without risk of hurting anyone or any thing. I have one such box in my garage. There's a Kia dealer here who will come deliver the car to your house for the sake of a test drive. I wonder if they'd let me test it in such a way... What do you think?

Here's the video:

That's actually a great idea and very easy to get done! Looks like a lot of fun too and it's better than having to try it out or figure it out in real life in case of an emergency situation.

Can't imagine why a dealer would care, empty boxes will not damage the car. I saw a NYT video review (I don't even remember the car anymore) where he bought an inflatable clown for $20 to test. Dead clown!
