The Subaru driver braked way too late and caused a massive accident
Would this have been prevented if the adaptive cruise control was activated?
I think the question is specifically whether the Pre-Collision Braking System (PCBS) in the Ascent works whether or not ACC or normal CC is activated. I believe the PCBS is independent of ACC or normal CC. There are many caveats regarding PCBS as outlined in pages 25-39 of the Eyesight Owners Manual for my 2019 Ascent Limited. As noted by many others, all the benefits of Eyesight are aids to the driver, but Eyesight is fallible, so final responsibility rests with us as drivers.Question...does eyesite function differently when ACC is on as opposed to when it's not? I feel like it "works" when ACC is on and not so much when it's off
It's independent. That's why it needs to be specifically turned off for a car wash. It's also disabled automagically when Eyesight is disabled because of heavy precipitation/visual limits being exceeded.I think the question is specifically whether the Pre-Collision Braking System (PCBS) in the Ascent works whether or not ACC or normal CC is activated.
