Twice I set off the alert, but not the actual braking for the collision alert thing. In both cases, I'd gotten a little close to a car in front of me that was turning, so I understood why it went off and just backed off a bit. Haven't seen it since.i turned everything off except adaptive cruise and reverse traffic warnings. My truck slammed on the brakes when a semi got a little close in a corner. Eff all that
Holy **** the blind spot monitoring is irritating. The first problem is that the "alarm" sound in the car grates on me like nothing else. The first time I heard it was when we were taking delivery of the car, and I outright asked, "What's wrong with it?" Nothing, that's just the sound it makes. Ugh. (Lesson learned, start the car myself next time.) So, I'll be sitting the right lane of a dual left-turn lane, minding my own business, turn signal on, generally trying to be an attentive, safe driver...then the light turns green, and I start moving. There's an incredible SHRIEKING noise from the car. It thinks I'm about to merge into the car next to me. The first few times it happened I seriously thought there was something wrong with the car. Now I'm slowly learning to ignore the car's alarms.
Back when we commuted to work, we went through one of these intersections, so I got to hear it practically every day. One good thing about the global pandemic is the torture of driving that thing isn't inflicted upon me nearly as often.
