Adaptive Cruise Fails to Brake to a Stop - Nearly Hits Car!
Really need some user input on this issue with my Adaptive Cruise Control.
Driving on the motorway at about 100km/h. Distance setting is on Distance 1 with Dynamic.
Car in front of me is detected and the A3 is tracking the car for at least 4-5 minutes before the issue.
The car in front of me brakes quickly and heavily. No warning tone from the Adaptive Cruise. A3 brakes far too slowly. I quickly have to jump on the brakes before we hit the car in front!!
This has happened twice now in 2 separate occasions. It is very disconcerting as it makes you loose any faith at all in the system. I understand it may not react in time, but if this is the case a WARNING tone MUST alert the driver. But it doesn't. I can't believe the system hasn't caused lots of accidents?? The current implementation of it is very unreliable...crazy Audi can get away with it.
Anyone experience the same problem?
