Default How Intuitive Is Intelligent Cruise Control?

The intelligent cruise control system sounds great, slowing down when needed and then speeding up when possible. It'll make driving in slow traffic less of a chore but how effective is it? Do you get really close to the car in front before the system slows down the car?

From what I know you can't activate cruise control under 40mph or something like that ? You can't use it in some sticky traffic if I remember correctly

The ICC cannot be enabled under approx. 30 kph or 20 mph, this is a common safety limit for cruise control systems. The distance can be set up to 50 m.

The system works like a dream, it is so effective that you tend to forget about it and find yourselves cruising blissfully behind a slow car at a ridiculous speed, but as soon as you pull out to overtake, the Q30 kicks down and accelerates.

We’ve been able to verify that the ICC is capable of adjusting in permanence to the traffic flow speed down to nearly standstill.

We faulted it once, as we were following a vehicle with a rack of bicycles at the back.

The cruise control can't detect bicycle racks?

Darn, 30kph isn't bad at all. That'll come in real handy in traffic down here. But you may need to elaborate a bit more on that bicycle rack thing.

while 30kmh/20mph is good, even cruising at that speed you will get idiots jumping in front of you if your trying to keep a steady pace in slow moving traffic like that. in situations like that i always throttle it myself.

What do you mean, it faulted once when there was a bicycle rack?

I should have qualified that observation: my wife was at the wheel and I was trying to coach her through the use of the ICC, she hates cruise control as a rule as she doesn’t feel ... in control (go figure!), at a stretch she prefers to use the limiter. When we experienced the problem, she assured me that she had the ICC enabled, but I still have my doubts. So in effect this has to be taken with a grain of salt.

Ah... okay now that clarifies quite a bit lol

Either way, we'll have more people reporting on how sensitive it is and all of that good stuff so I'm sure this won't be the last we're hearing of this situation or occurrence with bike racks.

I'm not one to use cruise control either. Maybe I'm just too old school but I want to be in control and be able to react with a moment's notice.
