    Active cruise is too shit to be used in places where people drive like cunts. Ok for more open roads but then you find yourself doing 10kph under your target speed for the last 5 mins because it regulated to suit the slower car in front and thatís annoying.

    The next step is connected cruise where the cars talk to each other and can sync up. That will take a lot of the bullshit concertina faff and overshoot out of it. Canít wait to fuck those little cock trains up with the RX7

      When I'm using cruise I'm either going faster than the car in front or slower.
      Rarely am I wanting to do the exact same speed.
      I've used radar cruise on a bunch of cars and they're all the same.
      Always switch it off straight away.

        I found that I didn't care that I had set the radar cruise to 3km/h more than the car in front; because the car was just happily sitting behind it without any effort from me, I was happy to sit there until such time as a huge gap in the fast lane appeared (so I could creep past at the extra 3km/h) or if I got really bored I'd actually use that accelerator thingy & go past 'em at maybe 15 more and then letting the car coast back down to the set speed would give me easily enough clearance to pull back into the slower lane again.
        It was just a lot less Ö well, annoying, than without the radar. I'm not claiming it got me there any faster, mind you.
        Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

          Ours has lane departure assist too. When we first got the car the son and I drove Sunny Coast to Brisbane and had the idea of testing LDA and radar cruise to see if the car could drive itself basically. [emoji1787]

          We did about 2kms on the highway with no steering or pedal input (yes I had my hands on the wheel ready). Obviously not how your meant to use it but was interesting, the LDA will correct the steering and keep you in your lane but does do by drifting back and forth the lane from one side to the other.

            So LDA = Drift Assist?

              Yup, I'm pretty sure this is the use case for it. It was significantly less stressful.

                Bit of a backflip from my last thread and sorry to dig up an older one.

                The woman was interested in a CX-9, i still don't mind this thing and we've humoured a Kluger.

                I re-read through this thread. Has any actual experience with them since being released? I drove one on the weekend and it wasn't shit, wasn't exciting but seemed to cruise not too bad.
                They've currently got a 5 year I think unlimited K warranty, 7 years free servicing as well.
                I'm looking at the LTZ (not V) model. From what I can work out is the V has 10 point adjustable seats, that reverse park itself thing and some other rando feature I'll never use.

                I've mentioned it before I don't particularly care for resale value but it seems to tick almost all the boxes. The wife isn't 100% sold and says it seemed unfinished.

                CX-9 I hit my head on the tail gate, goes good, inside seems big but I dislike the centre console shit and the sales rep which I could hardly understand didn't really sell it to me.

                Kluger seems like a good option. I just read this thread:

                    Reckon it'd tow the Gemini? It seems to think it'll do 2T.

                      Is towing with a DSG a good idea?

                          Easy with either but even better with the diesel (400nm). Heaps of people on the auskoda page on facebook tow with them.

                            Acadia can do 2T … now, those shitty rental trailers are 1200kg so it'd tow a Gemini, juuuuust.
                            But add tools, spare wheels, other paraphernalia in the trailer, and the trailer would want to be a lot better than those rental ones (which, yeah, I realise most probably are - but it'd be borderline for long trips IMHO).

                            And the reality is that more is probably fine, especially for short trips; my FIL told me what according to the interwebz (checked afterwards) were porkies about his 70's-spec fibreglass half-cabin. It's around 3T of boat+trailer, car only rated to 2100kg. Having towed a total of 2x in my entire life (empty Escort shell on car-trailer) I took it very easy, but it almost might as well not have been there. Heavier gerlytruk would surely do it easier (except for acceleration but you don't really need to do 0-100 in 6s with 2T of car-trailer on the back ).

                                We've had our Fleddy Kluger for around 7 mths, average petrol on the dash is 10.1 which is around where our diesel X-Trail sat so not bad. The difference is the Kluger gets driven up the highway 3 days a week whereas the SexTrail did more running around town/60/70 roads in traffic etc.

                                It's nice enough to drive, comfy, easy to cruise. doesn't do anything to stupid in general although being just the 2WD model it will torque steer like a mother fucker if you tramp it from a standing start or higher in the revs in the low gears. It can haul it's fat arse along quite well when using the tiptronic thingo, I think 8 speeds or whatever it has is too many for normal auto mode as it sometimes needs a sec to pick a gear. It is far less annoying overall than when we first got it as I have figured everything out and adjusted to where shit is but the nav/stereo is not the most intuitive set up, it's plenty usable just it takes more steps than it needs to sometimes to do simple shit. Auto tailgates are a wank too.

                                If the plan was to tow stuff regularly I'd get a diesel, the Kluger can move along but is better with some revs and I reckon it would be pretty average off the mark with some weight behind it but would go OK once you are close to or up to speed.
