    Is Traffic Aware Cruise Control the same as Adaptive Cruise Control? They are one and the same?

    Meaning you don't have Adaptive Cruise Control unless you activate autopilot features?

    Now that sucks. I don't care for the auto park and line assist stuff. Paying 2500 for just TACC....bummer.

    Really? TACC is what makes stop-and-go traffic bearable for me.

    From the manual:

    Traffic-Aware Cruise Control is
    primarily intended for driving on dry, straight
    roads, such as highways and freeways. It
    should not be used on city streets.

    [​IMG]Warning: Traffic-Aware Cruise Control
    has limited deceleration ability and may
    be unable to apply enough braking to
    avoid a collision if a vehicle in front slows
    suddenly, or if a vehicle enters your
    driving lane in front of you. Never depend
    on Traffic-Aware Cruise Control to slow
    down the vehicle enough to prevent a
    collision. Always keep your eyes on the
    road when driving and be prepared to
    take corrective action as needed.
    Depending on Traffic-Aware Cruise
    Control to slow the vehicle down enough
    to prevent a collision can result in serious
    injury or death.
