Quite appalled by the Lane Assist and Distronic systems
Recently got hold of my Station-wagon E250, after having driven a Volskwagen Passat, and I have to say I am quite unimpressed by the driving assistance systems:
1. The Lane Assistance tries to keep my car in the lanes but if the curve is a little too sharp it will just fail, and sometimes when it does not it sends my car across the lane towards the other side. It then swerves back, and is now off on the other side.
2. I've tried the Histrionic in town; I was approx. 10m behind a large public transport bus, and activated the Distronic. My car "jumped" at the bus so fast that I actually had to slam the brakes to prevent a (very likely) collision.
Any comments? (Dis)similar experiences?
