For the most part I'm very happy with Honda Sensing. LKAS works great and is super useful in long tripst. But I have a question about ACC and CMBS and want to make sure this is just the way they work and not just an issue with my car:
- CMBS - The owners manual already indicates that in certain conditions it can pick up cars that are coming in the opposite direction. This happens to me quite frequently when driving in narrow roads: sometimes it only shows the warning in the gauge cluster, but others gets to even beep. I assume this is normal, but I'm concerned that one of these days the car is going to slam on the breaks thinking I'm about to crash. Any thoughts? My hope is that by the point the incoming car is so close that my Pilot would typically enable the brakes, by then it's already out of the field of "vision" of the CMBS. As of today, it has never gone past Stage 1 by mistake though (i.e. never enabled the brakes by mistake).
- ACC - The way my Pilot identifies there's a car ahead (you go from that dotted shaped of a car to a full picture in the gauge cluster) seems pretty inconsistent. In the same good-weather conditions, road, and within a span of minutes, sometimes it detects the car in front of me when it's pretty far, and others let's it get WAY too close before detecting it, to the point that it needs to hit on the brakes because the car in front of mine is much closer than the distance I have configured to keep. I have also noticed that when there's a car at a distance I think the Pilot should have seen it (but hasn't), if I disable ACC for a split second and enable it again, THEN it identifies the car.
