Incorrect[edit]

This article is incorrect and provides ZERO sources.

This is wiki, so what's your problem? Incorrect information and zero sources (or inaccurate ones) are the norm here. Wiki is a joke.

Was Mercedes first?[edit]

The german Wikipedia article says, that Nissan was the first to sell ACC in cars. Has somebody sources for this? --84.178.122.203 17:10, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Sections[edit]

There should be sections for each vehicle manifacturer like in the German Wikipedia acticle. It's much more readable then and more information like which version of ACC is in different vehicles and when it came out can be included without making it unreadable. --134.93.143.161 08:22, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

I agree with you. I would like to go on an restructure the article this way. Any other opinions on this?Rotarucalin (talk) 20:28, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Specifications of different systems[edit]

There are huge differences between the implementations of ACC. There are systems that work only in a limited speed range, while others can work at almost any speed. Also there are systems that have emergency breaking features even when turned off. This information should be mentioned for the different cars. --84.178.67.155 (talk) 18:01, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Ideally yes, but this article has limited views, and automatic braking is known as a precrash system, there is a topic for that.69.65.224.246 (talk) 04:16, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Readded useful section[edit]

Useful material stays. Great fugo (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 09:39, 29 September 2009 (UTC).

I have removed this section. Having a section like this is of little use: it gets out of date very quickly, and before long most cars will have it available any way, so it becomes as useful as 'cars that have air bags' or 'cars that have brakes'.
If you want to add this section back in, do us the courtesy of achieving a consensus on the talk page first, get some debate, pehaps put it to a vote.

I readed it since it is useful, it gives manufacture names as well as introduction dates. If it becomes out of date then it will be updated. As of now it is hardly out of date and you are not justified removing information based on your predictions of future events, especially considering you have yet to make a single edit of any value to the article.

This 'useful section' discussion is not very useful, as it is not at all clear which is the section you are discussing. Centrepull (talk) 04:14, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

BMW model year 2014[edit]

I believe all 2014 bmw sedan models have full speed ("stop & go") "automatic" cruise control as, at a minimum, an option in 2014. Not all coups/convertibles do though. I don't believe it is tied to engine size in any way.-jss (talk) 01:39, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
