I have always wondered why Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is not a compulsory requirement in all cars. None of my cars ( Pardo 2014 and Camry 2006) has it, although I am aware the more expensive cars do have them ( Mercs.) Most people will state that it is the cost that prevents it but I would like to know if it is more expensive than the air-bags installed in most cars ? I can only assume that the front sensing system may be expensive .
While sitting next to new drivers ( like my son and daughter) the first thing that I have to watch out for is the judgement of the braking distance. A large percentage of accidents on our roads are due to this misjudgment . With high speed urban driving even an experienced driver may have faced emergency braking scenarios ( I have).
I believe that electronic sensors like most electronic components are getting cheaper so why the delay in this option. Even if it may have some negatives consequences , it should be available in all cars even if it is has optional activation switch.
Perhaps those who have ACC or know the cost can comment about the hurdle that stops the manufacturers from installing this life saving device.
I did a trip from abu dhabi to al ain and was trying different speeds to see which gave me the best mileage. Mine is 3.8 LWB 2008 model. The car was empty and just me driving.
Scenario 1: driving at 90km/h gave me 9.3km/l
Scenario 2: driving at 110 km/h gave me 8.9km/l
Any comments on whether these numbers are good or bad and I will check the spark plugs, filter and tyre pressure and oil.
What is the ideal tyre pressure for city driving? 35 psi?
I have Pajero 3.5 2014 Model, Full Tank used to generally give me 450 Kilometers till the Fuel Tank used to start empty indicator.Nowadays at only 350 Kms it comes to empty indicator starts,

Otherwise the Car is very good and excellent fuel efficeincy this started from this May. Would appreciate any inputs
Just read today morning that all cars in UAE will have below efficiency rating mandatory from 2017. This new move seems very good for educating consumer before buying the vehicle, however I am not understanding the need of creating 5 levels of rating within just 1 L/100 km (1.71 km/liter) difference.
All cars that I have ever own falls much below the "Very Poor" rating.
14.2 km/liter (7.04 L/100 km) = Very Good 13.6 km/liter (7.35 L/100 km) = Good 13 km/liter (7.69 L/100 km) = Average 12.5 km/liter (8 L/100 km) = Poor 12.49 km/liter (8.006 L/100 km) = Very Poor
