There was no problem with the 8th generation civic although it was rated with 4 stars before 2008! The 9th generationcivic will be one of the safer cars in it's category!

1. my driving style would make this cmbs go off to often... somethimes before you overtake, you just need to get near that tail

2. have you noticed that side curtains go off in a head crash? Is that on purpose to make car unrepairable in terms of costs e.g. you get a "small" bump and all airbags go off?

I've already got an anti-collision device. Mine is called keeping a safe distance from the car in front and watching where I'm going I do see a lot of cars without this device though, it seems to activate the brake lights every few seconds, even on free flowing Motorways !

On other cars the system's only active when traveling under a certain speed, around 25mph I think. So basically only town driving and when pulling off, when you'll need it the most.

I'd imagine it's the same on the Civic, it would be plain dangerous cutting in at 70 on a motorway.

Ah ok, haven't actually watxhed the video yet lol, probably should I hope there's some way to turn it off then, as you said, the last thing you need when you're overtaking is for the car to stick the brakes on...

+1

Not keeping a safe distance seems the vogue these days. Far simpler to keep a safe distance and then you only need throttle reduction to slow down. Tailgating and continual braking impedes the flow of traffic more.

CMBS doesnt operate if the speed difference between you and the vehicle ahead is less than 15kmph/10mph, it may also not activate if you turn the steering wheel to avoid a collision - It may also not operate if the distance between your car and the vehicle ahead of you is too short.

It's an optional extra on the entire BMW/Audi range!!!

May - i'd assume that the vagueness of the statement is referring to the speed at which the avoiding manouvre was performed.
