two things happened today.. (park button danger and distronic danger)
I know in many places its been told but had to try it. Just picked up my mail and got in my car and just started the motion, I mean barely started moving and I hit the park button.. DUDE!!! THAT WAS A HARD I MEAN HAAARD BREAK!! It wasn't like a break, it was like a locking mechanism of the engine initiated while its still turning. with a very loud, scary metal hitting metal sound.. I was shocked.. Soo.. I'd say, don't do it. I was very slow too.. I hope I didn't break anything..
I enjoy my drivers assistance package and I'm amazed with every feature in it. Today something important happened and I loved the car's instincts about to warn me. So my car matches the car in front of me at the city traffic, slows, stops, goes again etc..love it. So we are coming closer to the lights, bunch of cars already lined up, right before we were about to stop, car in front of me changes a lane and slides to the next lane.. My car was just about the stop by itself but since the car in front of me disappeared, takes off again to reach set cruise speed and didn't detect the car in front who was not in motion. Then collision assist starts beeping and I hit the break and we stopped.. So it was an experience.. If collision assist was off or not operational, could've been accident caused by distronic plus.. Technology is there but be careful using it. Wanted to share.
