Cruise control

Just curious, why would someone use regular cruise control when there is adaptive control?

Someone, for example, might not be lucky enough to get the adaptive control. My Sport edition has only old-school cruise control... which I still use rarely though... Don't want to let some computer get all the fun of driving my vehicle.

In another vehicle I drove, the adaptive cruise control was terrible. Two aspects come to mind: 1) If ACC used and another vehicle cuts in front of you (not uncommon, even at high speed) all **** broke loose with sound warnings, LED's flashing, and harsh application of brakes, and 2) When approaching a slower car from behind, but not too quickly, the ACC would gently slow you down without you noticing--such that you were now trailing the slower car in front of you and doing 5 - 10 mile below the posted speed. This was particularly irksome with clowns that seem to speed up to speed limit and then drift down repeatedly.

I use it only at night or when I'm tired. Otherwise I consider it more trouble than it's worth.

That's a good question. I would not.
I bet the cruise control is the base upon which the adaptive cruise is built on.
Just add sensors and some other items and you have adaptive cruise.
With the Tech group its all there.
But you are correct. Adaptive cruise should be the only option I see in one set of controls. I am still a bit confused about this set up but getting use to it.
I love the feature and would feel lost if I had to use conventional cruise control.

Almost **** my pants when the first time I used cruise and thought it was adaptive and almost rear ended the car that hit its brakes in front of me.

That is when I learned I had both cruise and adaptive....

It comes in handy when the sensor is iced/mudded over and adaptive tuns itself off.....
