    Thank you! That's a big slip in date. Oh well. At least it will be warmer and nicer weather by then.

    Adaptive Cruise and Heavy Rain

    Again, I have no issues with it disabling itself in the rain. At all. What it should do, however, is reset itself when the conditions improve. It apparently doesn't do that. I had the car at the dealer on Wednesday, and they agree that the owners manual implies it will re-set. However, unless it is raining/snowing and they can drive it, then drive it in acceptable conditions long enough to see if it resets, they cannot test it. (Which makes sense) There are no TSBs on this. My next test, and who knows when I will be able to test it, is to see if it actually does reset if you leave it on but alone (i.e. not switch it to normal to get regular cruise back) long enough.

    Adaptive Cruise and Heavy Rain

    I completely disagree with you, as do others I suspect. The owners manual specifically states you can "wait a few minutes" for the system to resume normal operation when a sensor is blocked / obstructed. It does not do that. Period. There is no argument here. It fails and the only way to reset it is to stop, turn the car off, and resume. That is not "waiting a few minutes for normal operation to resume". My experience only plays into the fact that I may use the system when others would not due to conditions. I have NO PROBLEM with the system disabling due to weather. My issue is with the steps that are required to resume normal function. The way it functions is not acceptable for the long term. I have no choice but to deal with it at this point. I am not the only one who has this concern.

    Adaptive Cruise and Heavy Rain

    ??? Am I asking to be flamed on here? Do you somehow think that this conversation isn't a valid one? 25 years in law enforcement with real driving training and driving in weather of all sorts does make me something of an expert in operating in adverse conditions. I didn't know I needed to post a resume along with my comments. The fact is, the system fails too soon, and doesn't reset without stopping the car. You mean to tell me that it is acceptable that if I drive through a brief downpour while on a long trip that if I want my adaptive cruise control back, I have to stop? Simply doesn't make sense, and that is exactly how it behaves. Perhaps if you were actually driving one of these vehicles, you would understand the flaw.

    Adaptive Cruise and Heavy Rain

    Correct - The problem is, that the system does NOT correct itself. The table about errors implies that you can "Wait a short time. It make take several minutes for the radar to detect that it is no longer obstructed". This is not the experienced behavior. Once the error comes up, it does not recover without turning the car off and re-starting it. You can toggle the cruise control between Adaptive and Normal in the menus all day and it will not recover without the car being powered down. In addition to this, the sensor, from my perspective, is too sensitive. I get it that when it is raining HARD, you probably shouldn't be using it anyway. However, even in moderate rain, road spray from surrounding vehicles will cause it to fail, and then you are out of luck for the rest of the trip.

    What change do you want for the Ford Fusion?

    Three big things for me: - Reiterate the need for better manual control of climate. I want OUTSIDE air through DEFROST DUCTS and DASH DUCTS without the air conditioning compressor on. You can NOT put the car with any mix that includes the defrosters without it turning on. UGH. - Get rid of the damned hump on the floor near the seat on the left side. I like to pull my left foot up close to me on long drives. The hump drives me crazy. - User selectable DRL. I had a Camry rental while on a trip (That's worth an entire other post. What a POS car that is). The only nice thing about that car was you could set the DRL on/off on the stalk with the headlights. As a sub-component of DRL, I would like to see HID/LED headlights/DRL. My bet is on LED because of the low power consumption, especially on a hybrid. Most of the other things in this listing I am OK with in some form or another, they just might not be pain points. For example, MFT could use some work, but I still love it and think the current version works great. I know that a TON of it has to do with what phone you have. I have a Blackberry Z10 and it works flawlessly with, I believe, every feature available.
