In my situation described above, yes, the SBS came on hard overriding the throttle and causing me clutch suddenly to prevent stall(manual). Now, to my chagrin, as this is getting into my head, it has happened two more times since adjusting the sensitivity of the system. Each time the car is reacting to what it senses as a danger on my right side. The scariest of the last two times involved a quick but perfectly timed lane change from the left lane to the center lane to avoid a slow moving vehicle. Detecting a car in the extreme right lane ahead of me, the car applied brakes as I was making the lateral move into the center lane. Thank goodness this subsided as that car in the right lane moved out of detection zone... this is happening at 55mph on the Cross Island Parkway in NYC... high volume road, making that action potentially deadly.sorta curious as to how other cars Adaptive Cruise Control is compared to the 2019 + Mazda 3. the MAza
I'm actually curious what happens... or what the damage is if the SBS comes on hard, but you continue to throttle hard... does SBS just take over 100% ?
PLEASE, ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS, CONTACT MAZDA. I realize that this system has been tested and it likely will prevent more crashes than cause them but it may require some software upgrades. Furthermore, what might be the insurance ramifications if we simply turn it off? Not to mention, I traded my 2012 expecting to feel confident in the active safety features.
