I didn’t mind the adaptive cruise in my company car when I drove 800 miles a week but now that I have my manual transmission, It doesn’t even apply. I know what you mean though!Wow, thanks for making me feel like i'm 31 again! Btw, I'm not a fan of adaptive cruise either. My brother 2 years older loves it. I find myself sometimes slowing when i don't want to. I am very capable of passing some slow-poke and maintaining speed (or braking myself) rather than having the system do it for me and then realizing soon after that it reduced speed for me on it's own.
