It is entirely a first world problem but on that point everything about this forum is first world. We are discussing a £60k-£70k car. Not sure that means I should accept an expensive car that doesn't perform as advertised or a dealer that treats its customers badly.Quakered wrote: ↑Sat Jan 02, 2021 12:34 pmI confess to not being able to understand the OP's post as he supplies no information on his problems. I therefore looked it up on Twitter and it would appear that his gripe is that the adaptive cruise control does not work in heavy rain as confirmed by Jaguar. I suspect this is a safety issue as rain can reduce the effectiveness of radar and indeed car control issues when roads are wet. In these conditions I would have thought the driver of any car should be using the Mark 1 eyeball and driving experience and not relaying on the cars "toys".
I apologise if I missed his early whinges on this forum but do think he should get a sense of proportion on what is very much a first World problem.
PS as a young officer training to get my Ocean Watchkeeping Certificate, it was constantly stressed that no officer should rely on radar as there could easily miss things and that the Mark 1 eyeball had to be the most important detection device to ensure safe navigation - I still remember that over half a century later!
Of course the automation doesn't replace the human driver, I never said it did.
