My last Ford had a terrific engine and transmission. The rest of the car was garbage. It became almost unuseable by 50K miles. I sold it for less than the engine and transmission were worth. If your car doesn't have TPMS you can buy a pressure gauge for a few dollars at the auto parts store.Can’t believe that a auto maker would not include something like this. It’s this kind of thing that I’m experiencing with my 2019 Outback that will drive me back to Ford. I’m quickly realizing they have the best bells and whistles!
The only consistent factor in all of your many complaints is you. Perhaps you would be happier with a different vehicle.None of [the safety features] with the exception of the anti lock brakes can be relied upon. They either work or dont work on a daily basis with no apparent reason. Is it a safety feature if you cannot depend on it. I must drive as if none of the features are available.
I'm not sure how you could arrive at that conclusion. Do you routinely have close calls in daily driving? I rarely get into a circumstance where I would expect eyesight to react, other than occasionally getting a beep from drifting a bit in a narrow lane. IIHS and NHTSA both give the safety systems high marks. None of the safety systems available on the market today work perfectly in every scenario, but having them is certainly better than not.The power is adequate and I love the safety features when they decide to actually work. None of them with the exception of the anti lock brakes can be relied upon. They either work or dont work on a daily basis with no apparent reason.
I've been amazed that eyesight can detect lanes using the snow itself when any sign of the painted lines is completely under the snow. It must just "see" the contrast between patches of blacktop in the ruts from the tires and the windrow of snow along side of the ruts. I remember before I got my car I asked the salesman how effective the eyesight was with snow covered roads and he said I would probably be surprised at how well it would work. He was correct. While there are times it can't detect the lanes it does work far better than I expected.Here is an example... the 'Lane Keep Assist' can only work if the eyesight cameras can 'see' the lines on the road. Here in Vermont in the winter, this is rarely the case. The sand/salt/snow on the roads will cover up the painted lines.
Also, as the traffic drives over this crud on the roads (and the snowplows scrape the roads) The painted lines wear off the roads entirely. Without lines, the 'Lane Keep Assist' system is 'blind' and will not work.
It is interesting to monitor the dashboard display for this 'Lane Keep Assist' function. It will show the driver when it cannot 'see' the lanes.
Also during the winter, the entire vehicle can get covered with the white layer of dried salt residue. This coating can really mess with some of the sensors which need a clear 'view' of the road.
