Hi Everyone,

I bought my Seltos in October last year and I love it. Great car.

Recently I have noticed something that is a little odd and wondered if anyone else has the same experience.

The distance the Smart Cruise leaves between me and the vehicle in front when stopping in traffic seems to change. From what I would normally consider a reasonably distance, to something that I find far too close to the vehicle in front, and would appear the driver in the vehicle in front sometimes feels that way as well. It does not appear to be related to the set distance to vehicle in front whilst the traffic is moving.

It's not hit anything. But gets uncomfortably close sometimes.

I asked my the service manager at my 12 month service about it and he said it was slightly dynamic and depended on how fast the vehicle in front was stopping, the colour, and a whole host of other seemingly irrelevant things. It is certainly none of those things as I have had the more reasonable stopping distance followed by the far too close distance on stop start traffic behind the same car, 30 seconds apart.

Any ideas?:unsure:
I don't even use it anymore, cause it downshifts one to two gears going up even the slightest hills and here in Connecticut, and we are nothing but hills. It's poorly programmed for me. SUCKS

Perhaps you accidentally hit the button on the steering wheel and you didn't notice it
Make sure the distance you have it set at is the same every time. That way you'll know if it's working properly
There are three distant settings and I agree even to shortest setting to too far away. I live in the small state of Ct and there is ALWAYS traffic, so I rarely get to use it... The only time I use cruise is early morning. And the cruise is way to sensitive and down shifts a gear on the slightest hill and 2 gears if its a steep hill. I never see it down shift when driving without it. That also needs addressing.
