2012 Volvo S60 Long-Term Road Test

2012 Volvo S60 T5: Nannies

April 25, 2012

volvo_s60_t5_nannies.JPG The buttons in our longterm 2012 Volvo S60 T5 for lane departure warning and collision alert are always in the state you see above: off. I don't think this is a coincidence. To me -- and other editors too, apparently -- the overly conservative tuning of these "aids" is more of a nuisance than a help. In particular, the crash alert's flashing lights and squawking induces ten times the panic of the non-crash it detects. Every time it goes off I swear it takes six months off my life.

For those that own cars equipped with similar systems, what's your take -- do you find them helpful, or in the off position?
