No issues here with adaptive cruise; absolutely love it, and think the current mode (only 25% brake application, disengages with a beep when too slow) is perfect for 99% of the drivers out there. Short of steering, I can hop in the back and read a book, but avoid using it in congested traffic.
The only thing is I tend to disengage it going downhill; the brake dust on SRT8s sees me paddle shifting to add some engine braking, and avoid brake use. Adaptive cruise on for most of the time means I have a slight shade of grey on my rear lower bumper corners after a long drive.
