I'm thinking this might be one of those things, that if your current vehicles doesn't have it, you could probably go the rest of your life with out it, and never know what you were missing ? (like flat screen TV's) I'd be tempted to say, most that have had it, wouldn't want to go without it.... but inevitably, somebody will jump on to say they have it in 1 or 3 other vehicles, but they hate it, and they never use it, if for no other reason than just to prove me wrong
lol Gotta' love the internet
Anyway, my Prius has it, and I use it 100% of the time on the freeway..... and sometimes even on our main through fares in town (granted, those are 3 lanes each direction, with 45 mph speed limits where most people are driving 55 mph. I think maybe once or twice it might have saved me from rear ending someone... or maybe not. But it would have been close(r)
This is posing a really big problem for me, as I won't pay the several thousand extra dollars needed to get adaptive cruise control in a Maverick..... but because of this one thing, I might just pass on the Maverick altogether. My GF's current car does not have adaptive cruise control..... So it wont be a problem for her. Their is a stronger chance she might get a Maverick, than me, because of this.
