Question EyeSight performance at night

Does EyeSight work well at night? I will appreciate if current users can share their experiences.

Yes, very well. No problem.
As long as your eye can see the previous car, eyesight can see it too.

Eyesight works just as well as long as it can see tail light, per the manual

Nothing really to share, it works the same as during the day in my experience. I've used the adaptive cruise on dark highways with little traffic and it does well with separation and lane wandering.

Yes, as long as there is not so much snow or fog on windshield that cameras are blocked, or so much fog the system can't see more than a short distance ahead.

FYI: Last night I was in a 3 mile start and stop freeway jam in a construction zone because of an accident. It dawned on me that the adaptive cruise and lane detection were so good I could have had eyes shut and steered when the car barked at me. Of course I did NOT do that. I saw a lot of people paying attention to their phones and radios in that delay. Clearly a scenario where EyeSight would help because when I finally crept to the accident, it was somebody rear ending another in that construction zone.

No, take her with, have her move toward a road stripe, have her use adaptive cruise. In my case that caused my frugal wife to say and pay for the loaded Limited EyeSight model.

Anybody who has used the eyesight for one long trip will buy it without hesitation.

Actually, in traffic, eyesight also performs perfectly.

Go for a test drive at night and ask the salesman to let you test the pedestrian avoidance system on him.
