This weekend while backing out of parking space half way out, a car drove by without stopping for me. Thanks to the BCI it braked my QX60 to avoid hitting the car (just like the commercials! :)). Also love that it warns you when you get too close to an object(parking, drive-thru corners, garage etc......)
Plus, love the ICC and DCA controls when driving on the road.
I got this package with Prem, Prem+

Question, is there way to increase the warning beep sound? I though I had it at max from settings?

Loving my wife's QX60!!!

Great to hear! That package is way more popular since that commercial came out btw.

As for the volume, go into settings, other, camera, and there is volume and sonar sensitivity that you can adjust. Hope this helps!

Thxs.. I will take a look at the settings. :)

IMO, the Driver's Assistance Package is well worth the money. Even fully loaded this car is still a great value as compared to its competitors.

The only feature I'm not overly crazy about is lane departure warning/prevention. I'd have preferred a lane keep assist instead, but all the other features of the vehicle are nice to have as a backup imo. The all around view, blind spot thing and backup collision intervention are my favs.

First time we have these gadgets in any of our cars. The default volume is a little low and I couldn't figure out how to increase it until I saw one of the posts above.
What is the best/safest way to test the BCI system to make sure it really works?

That's what I have heard from many folks that have opted for it, very few have complaints about it from what I have noticed.

100% agree.

Around view was one of the major deciding factors that pushed the decision towards the QX60 over the MDX. My wife now refuses to drive any vehicle without around view. From hating parking, she has gone to enjoying it.

I am also not a huge fan of the LDW as I think it is too sensitive.

Btw I think adaptive cruise control should be the ONLY type of cruise control allowed on any car.

I agree with the adaptive cruise control feature comment. It should be the only one available since it has a real nice safety feature keeping you from creeping up on the vehicle in front of you. As mentioned in my cross country thread, I am really sold on Lane Departure Warning and Intervention. It really helps keep you in your lane during bad weather conditions and when being passed at high speeds by 18 wheelers.

Really having second thoughts about the ACC. IMO, it is not smart enough. On the interstate and in the right lane and some joker passes me and moves over into my lane, the car immediately slows down. If someone is behind me close that is a pretty dangerous situation because the computer is just not letting off the gas but braking in some instances. I don't know if the rear brake light are coming on but they should be.

IMHO, in a real world situation you should not really need ACC, you should be paying attention to the road. Some of these fancy features are just giving a distracted driver even more reasons to be distracted. Ok, I will get off my soap box now.

Have 36,000 miles on my JX.
Use all the safety features except the lane departure, which was not part of my package.
Feel great about how they work.
Miss them when driving my other vehicle!
Would also like to have the warnings louder then the current max.
Wish my car insurance would credit more for the safety features.....I'm hoping the companies will give safety credit where it is due as the vehicle history progresses.

I heard about a dealership that demonstrated the system by backing up towards a wall of empty cardboard boxes.

Does BCI bring the car to a complete stop automatically? What if the driver's foot is on the gas pedal?
Does it work on moving objects only (like what happens in the commercial)?

1) Yes, it brings the car to a complete stop even if you have the gas pedal depressed. It actually pushes the gas pedal back and brakes.

2) Yes, it works on moving as well as fixed objects.

The computer in this case is doing EXACTLY what it should do, and what a human should do.

If the guy behind you is following so close, then you are already at risk. If someone cuts in front of you, you are supposed to slow down because you may hit him otherwise and potentially be at fault. Also, the slowing down process - with brakes - is not quite a slam the brakes.

And even in that case, the guy behind you is supposes to be further back and observe someone cutting in. The computer is doing the right thing. Not doing it would mean taking on the risk of rear ending the guy in front of you to avoid the unknown probability of the guy behind you rear ending you instead.

They do.

In a logical real world, there would be no cruise control to begin with. It is a dangerous feature. A sleepy driver may naturally ease off the accelerator, minimizing the extent of impact. Cruise control keeps the car at a constant and dangerous speed. It should have been banned long ago.

To the extent that there IS cruise control, is should absolutely be adaptive and designed to slow down the car if there is potential for any impact.
