Adaptive Cruise Control

I don't think I can buy another car without adaptive cruise control since owning my 300C for the last 5 months. Today on I 15 I had it set to 75mph following a Suburban that was doing about 70. The burb slowed down to zero because of heavy traffic. The adaptive cruise control slowed down my car to around 10mph before the "Brake" warning came on. I just love this feature, although I do keep my foot over the gas pedal so I know where my foot is at just in case of an emergency.

Lights are also amazing, make our 09 Yukon Denali feel like it had candles in front of the vehicle.

I love ACC. I had basically the same experience. This is a great hiway safety feature. One caveat......... when you pull off at an exit, remember that it is on!!!

The adaptive cruise works incredibly well on these cars. I now find it annoying driving our Aspen that does not have adaptive cruise.

BTW, there is a flash update coming out for the adaptive cruise to fix a surging problem (only for SRT8's).

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.

I will add for anyone reading that the ACC system is great. My parents just got a new 300 C (I'm getting mine in a month or two) and I would absolutely not consider getting the car without it. It is surprising how useful it is!

Not having ever used it before, I would have never guessed how nice feature it is.

If you did only 100% city driving I could see getting away with not having it but if you do freeway driving even once or twice a week or the long road trip every few months it is TOTALLY worth it.

I will say the first few times you used it it is at a little bit a matter of faith to let it slow you down from 70mph to 35mph – I know my heart was racing and it was definitely a strange feeling to get used to.

The Adaptive Cruise Control and the normal Cruise Control of this car are the best I have ever used. They work from 30kph up and keep the speed precisely up and down steep hills. I compare them with my wife’s latest Lexus RX450h. The Lexus starts from 50kph, doesn't maintain the speed down hills and the ACC makes wrong decisions (applies the breaks when not needed) more often than the Chrysler.

to be honest the ACC is the best thing since sliced bread! The only thing that has be wondering is why other manufactures like audi enable the ACC feature down to zero and even resume after hitting zero.

I like it too....but it has a headfit in heavy spray & switches off....wont come back to play until ignition is switched off/on. Its also a shame it doesnt work down to 0mph - mine disengages about 30mph

Just drove from PA to FL and back and the ACC was amazing. Nearly 3500 miles and I had the opportunity to use just about every option. Big fan now.
