On my way back home from visiting my son in college, I was merging onto I-294 near Elmhurst, IIl when the traffic suddenly stopped. Having only driven my CX30 a few weeks, I’m not used to the emergency breaking distances. I nearly collided with the stopped car in front of me when the ABS and smart breaking system kicked in with chimes and beeps. Nearly crapped myself but glad to see the system works.

Good to hear the emergency braking assist worked for you. How far did you end up from the car in front of you?

It works very well as I have tested it and I have mine set to early the sensitivity.

I tested mine as well lol. Not the smartest decision. Worked like a charm... slammed the brakes on maximum on all 4 discs.

I had a big refrigerator box that I tested it on so it wouldn't cause any damages and it worked all right lol. Muted the sound system beep beep beep BRAKE! Warning and then full force brakes.

Keep in mind --- in inclement weather (snow, sleet, rain, fog, etc.) the radar system may not function properly! Of course, those are the kind of conditions that would be the most helpful to have a reliable 'smart breaking system' in place.

My concern is the braking distance it took me to stop. Maybe it’s the junky Bridgestone tires, but only going about 30 mph, I had to really jam on the brakes to stop. Coming from a little ‘19 Civic Si coupe maybe I’m used to grippier brakes.

Hi,

When I bought the car it seemed that the system was not working, until one day while talking to my son the car in front suddenly stopped and the system was activated. The consequence was an abrupt stop and a distance of maybe 1 meter from the car in front. The system makes the sound first, but then stops too near and a hard brake.

That’s about the distance I had from the car in from of me. I’m not too happy with this car’s breaking distance, which, like I said, could be partially due to the stock Bridgestones. Having never owned a crossover, it will take a little adjustment to the car’s safety systems and maneuverability. I’m used to small sports cars that stop on a dime.

Some emergency tests performed and comparison against Peugeot 2008. Unfortunately video in Russian but self-descriptive
P.S. This system triggered for me once on adaptive cruise control enabled - reacted to the alert message and slowed down myself

I think setting the warning setting from normal to early makes a difference it seems as that's where i have mine set at and it seems to stop at a good distance in my tests.

inclement weather adds stopping distances that will not allow the car to stop in times using the radar cruise. Turn it OFF!
Assume some responsibility for crying out loud.

My comment was cautionary. Of course, the driver must be responsible,especially in poor driving conditions!

There was nothing personal in my comment. I don't know the background of the people on this forum but some take everything they read here as entirely true.

I agree completely. This pajama boy generation wants a computerized mommy to drive their car for them.
