    Riley, Something I learned on the forum about my 2013. When you have the adaptive cruise control on, there is a little video car in the center display. The 1,2 or 3 blocks are shown in front of it. It is programmed so the little video cars brake lights come on if the cars brake lights come on! Cracked me up to see it. It does match reality. Haven't driven a '15 in cruise yet so I don't know if they use the same icons, but I would expect that they would.

    I checked yesterday and could not see tail lights on the icon turning red. There are definitely tail lights on the icon though, but no perceptible color change to me.

    Riley,
    Did you let the car brake for itself? Or press the brake pedal. The little car pictured only shows brake lights in my car when the car is doing it itself. If you hit the brakes yourself it disconnects the system (obviously) and doesn't show the brake lights. Silly little thing anyway. Not quite a perversion of technology. That would be the toilet paper rolls that play music!

Came to a complete stop several times and the car handled beautifully. Had to mess with the virtual notches between cars a few times until I got comfortable. Went with the aggressive 1 notch after my confidence was assuaged by the performance of the braking. Works on the off ramps too. Wasn't sure if it would disengage at certain MpH as the lane assist does. My greatest fear is that I will read about a trick or spot to put a finger to prevent the steering wheel from not sensing my hands. I would be afraid that I would take advantage of it. Also sort of concerned about the bad habits this technology can create and nurture.
    I agree, my wife and I have used the smart cruise everyday since the purchase in Sept. of 2010.

    I live in Indiana where a common sense law was passed about a year and a half ago. It is now a law that you must pull over to the right lane in order to not impede faster traffic in the left lane. Unfortunately, law enforcement officers have not been enforcing it in order to educate drivers. I did notice a state high patrol pull over a "grandma" who was be damned if she was going to exceed 60 mph in 70 mph zone. The officer was behind me and about 3 other cars when he took to the right lane to pass us to cut in ahead of me and directly behind grandma. He pulled her over and I can only hope that pulled her over for disregarding the new law. After about 5 minutes of refusing to pull over even when there was an opening was frustrating. The fact that officer was behind us made people even more skittish about passing her on the right when there was an opening. I hope every state passes a similar law at the very least with a flash of the high beams signalling your approach.
