Front Collision Alert: Useless
By ckaushal on

Vehicle

2014 Buick Enclave Leather Group 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Overall the car is great but the FCA system is useless. Drove the car for 3 days and intentially testing this feature in (Far) mode, it did not beep even when i was within 10 feets at 55MPH.I called Buick customer service and they were useless and just asked me to call the dealer. The result of the conversation with dealer was the beep may still work but only when you are super close to the car in front OR in other words the whole beeping feature is useless as you will probably hit the car in front even if the FCA system beeps. The display indicator did work (turned orange/amber color) at around 10 feet (in far mode), but without a beep it's useless.Bad advertising from BUICK on a 50K car.

Favorite Features

blind spot sensor works great. lane departure warning in good. access to 3rd row is great. It definately quiter than most of the cars (same size).

Suggested Improvements

Fix the forward collision alert system.
