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