    It's the latest in cruise technology, maintains a safe distance to the car in front by the use of radar sensors which in turn control/adjust the throttle & brakes.

    unless in some cases it mistakes dense bushes at the side of the road as cars, or you are on a bend and it panic brakes when a car comes the other way.....(thankfully they tend to do these things VERY rarely)

    Makes motorway driving too easy, especially in an auto
