Thank you. In my case, at least twice the FCA has activated when a car made a right turn suddenly at the last minute. But in other cases with similar speeds and distances that occurred entirely within my lane (like someone faced with an emergency braking situation) it has NOT activated, leading me to wonder if my specific vehicle's FCA is working as it should.Let me clarify. The car in front of me was directly in front of me. It is a narrow two lane road. One lane in my direction and one lane in the opposite direction. I meant to say if the vehicle had not completed the turn left I would have had to pass on the RIGHT traveling onto the shoulder and grass area. As soon as I applied the brakes the FAC stopped activating because when I removed my foot from the brake it did not reactivate.
I like your box idea. I was thinking of rigging a sheet across my (long) driveway, but your suggestion is easier. Thank you.For anyone worried about this, find an open parking lot and a very large (EMPTY!) box, drive towards the box at somewhere between 10 and 25 mph, and see what happens....
I'm not super inclined to worry, as at least the IIHS test says it avoided a crash at 12 mph and 25 mph. I do not believe ACC needs to be active to have collision avoidance operating, that is generally not how these systems work.
When someone is stopping directly in front of you have you at anytime just prior to recognizing this applied the brakes at all?I've had similar experiences. It engages easily when someone in front of me is making a turn. But stopping directly in front it won't always come on. I think it has something to do with the sensitivity settings actually from Hyundai. They probably tuned it down for front end and way up on the corner sensors. Probably a software issue and once some people get into some car accidents they will do a recall to boost the sensitivity.
I believe it did once other than when having hda cruise activated. The cruise it stops all on its own. Slow to react sometimes but it does. Usually kicks in at the last second when the car in front of me turns left or right but I had already let off the gas to account for the car turning. It kicked on this morning when a school bus was making a right hand turn. I wasn't going to hit the bus anyways.When someone is stopping directly in front of you have you at anytime just prior to recognizing this applied the brakes at all?
Thank you. I actually had one service manager tell me that the Palisade had no AEB. And he's right in the sense it isn't called out that way. But he actually believed that FCA did no braking.
