Very wise. If there is going to be a recall, let them sort out the fix properly and let the stealerships practice on somebody else’s pride and joy before letting them loose on ours!There's a Facebook NIRO EV group. I looked around there and someone else is having theirs replaced. I'm not in a hurry yet so gonna sit on it a while.
Near the roundabout where it's happened 3 times is a large phone mast.I’m on the group if people need me to do a deeper dive into it. I’ve not seen the FCA error since it had its hissy fit (and subsequent cruise control/ any radar assisted tech) a few weeks ago now and everything is still working fine. Even triggered the other day when a numpty turned off without indicating in front of me. Interesting though it could be caused by interference, wonder what frequency the radar works at and wonder what side of road items would upset it If that is the case?
The fault is not a fault from my understanding. Sadly, the auto regen is not perfect. It does slow down for all matter of cars, objects, etc, that it picks up as in the path of the car. I love driving in Auto regen, but it does have some drawbacks.However, this apparently random regen braking in the Auto mode is disconcerting and could annoy following cars assuming it was me braking when I wasn’t. I had to correct it by just pressing the gas pedal here and there. Anyone else see this?
Yes I get that, but it was sometimes regen braking out of the blue quite strongly when there was nothing I could see anywhere in the path of me and it comes as a bit of a surprise when it happens with no obvious detectable object nearby. It could possibly cause a rear end shunt from behind?? Weird.Yes if regen is at 0 Auto, you will still get some if the car detects objects in front of you. If you turn Auto off the car will literally coast. And I’m surprised how well it does as it’s very weird how far the inertia will carry you without any real resistance!.....
I did get accepted. I FaceBook messaged the admins and one got straight back to me. I'd tried to join using my iphone and apparently on the phone you can't see some questions they try to ask you - namely to see if you are in the motor trade. So confirmed I'm not and was immediately admitted. Join up - more e Niro stories and pics!Yes if regen is at 0 Auto, you will still get some if the car detects objects in front of you.

@Roo did you ever get accepted? I had no response either from messaging
I've had one on a A road with what I would call a stupid junction. Give way at 45 degrees to road, on a right hand bend(so not the normal 90 degrees)-> I was chopping along at 50 ish, and car was approaching on the side road and slowing to give way (as you would expect), I had slowed to maybe 45 for the corner. Car obviously thought could be a head on collision given car was dead ahead and still approaching, but obviously I had right of way given it was a giveway, FCA beeped, then started braking harshy. I overrode with accellerator as was an obvious mistake for a piece of software to make, given I could see the roads right of way, but it clearly didn't (even though the map showed the side road was a not even B-road junction).I have had one phantom brake event which was actually pretty scary It was on the motorway, I had just activated the SCC, and was overtaking a car in a curve going down to cross a bridge. There was a metal grid in the road that moves the rainwater away from the road. During the overtaking manoeuver suddenly an alarm started blaring and the car brakes during a split second. My wife was pretty startled and so whas I, even though it went so fast that there was no real risk. But had a car been right behind me, it could have had interesting consequences. I´ll be watching if I get more FCA hickups and report back on them
Sorry, slip of the keyboard. I meant FCA. I think that´s the warning timing but when I get into the car I´ll double check. But I seem to recall there´s a setting to determine how quick the car responds to a possible danger. It was set to Fast and I set it to Normal.
