Only $3,000 more for a new one with all the features she wants, better safety tech, and a better warranty? What was the question again?
AFAIK, no used car comes with the 10/100 warranty, no matter who makes it.
Both Kia and Hyundai reduce their 10/100 to 5/60 when a new car is sold again as used.
And agreed, for $3000 this one's a no-brainer. I'd go new.
I use adaptive cruise all the time. It works wonderfully well on the highway. If I want to pass someone, I can always override the cruise with the accelerator during that time. I usually use the maximum distance setting, which allows for a comfortable following distance, and provides about a two-second gap from the car in front, which is the minimum recommended for safety. Of course, other drivers will at times change lanes and cut in front of me when they see an opening. The only way to prevent that totally would be to tailgate the car in front, which is unsafe.Agree. I've turned off lane assist due to it's constant beeping on our twisty back-country roads.
And I don't like the adaptive cruse control at all.
Even on the minimum setting of 80 ft, when in the left lane it leaves so much of a gap that other drivers including tractor trailers think you are leaving room for them to pass so they cut in front of you, when you are in fact trying to pass them because your cruise speed is set faster than they are going - so using it makes you fall progressively further behind slower traffic. This is nothing but annoying unless you have time to waste.
There is a feature to turn off the adaptive setting and revert to regular cruise control and I'm going to do just that.
Thanks for providing that kind of feedback because its what most of us will be doing. After all these were made for the city, much like every other vehicle in the segment.While you are catching up to the car in front of you, passing slower traffic in the right lane, all of the sudden the adaptive cruise control brakes when the preset distance to the car in front of you has been reached. Drivers of the slower traffic in the right lane take this opportunity to pass and cut in front of you - as soon as this happens, the adaptive cruise control brakes per the distance requirement, creating yet more opportunity for slower drivers from right lane to cut in front of you yet again. This happens over and over until you are sick & tired of it. Instead of passing slower drivers, you become the slowest driver.
The highways I drive on are bumper to bumper, so trying to use this adaptive cruise control, even when the traffic is moving, is useless.
