    Has anyone had it activate to stop a collision? Save you from dosing off?

    Does it really stop the car if you don't or are not paying attention. In otherwords, it's impossible to run into another car in the back.

    Honda tells you many times in the OM that it hasn't made it impossible. Disclaimers about Honda Sensing are probably ten pages of the OM.

    It literally saved mine on the drive back from the dealership, no joke. Guy in a BMW dove in front of me at an offramp and it braked hard for me. Not sure if I would have seen it in time to brake myself because he braked hard as soon as he got in front of me. (Gotta love BMW drivers, I seriously hope they all burn in Hell.)

    This right here is why I miss my Mustang. I loved fucking with BMW drivers that were acting stupid. They couldn't catch me. 380RWHP (420ish at the crank) at 3,000lbs with 4.10 rear end was too much for them, I guess haha.

    Haha that's great, i can't wait till i am done school and can get a project car to take to the track and have fun with. i've been thinking of an older muscle car like a mustang or a camaro, although the miata is also on my list as i have driven those and they are a ton of fun to drive. With the miata it's like driving a go cart, also with how they are built it's really easy to take them into corners.

    Mine has put me back on the road a few times. There are a lot of narrow curvy roads in my area and if you look down for even a second, the road departure mitigation will keep you from going into the marsh. Chances are near 100% I would have caught it myself each time... it's just really nice to know it's watching out for you. And yes, it will stop you if it needs to... just try the adaptive cruise control in rush our... it can be unnerving.

    If I could do it all over again, I would have went for a turbo Miata. It's 'fun' to smash everything in a straight line, but it does get boring after a while, and filling up 15 gallons of fuel to go about 150-200 miles got old, really, really quick.

    Yea thats why i want to go with a miata since it's an amazing track car, cheap, and easy to work on. I would get bored of always driving in a straight line aswell, i was always more of a track driver than a drag strip. Don't get me wrong drag is awesome and really cool to watch and drive but to me it's way more fun flying a car around a track.

    A well done 'budget' orientated Miata can still do low 14's really high 13's at the drag.
