Driving Character
The steering wheel rack has a nice artificial-feeling weight to it however requires numerous turns from lock to lock, again, reminding you that youre driving one of the largest production passenger cars on the road.

The ActiveGlide system is easy and is automatically activated on authorized highways and Interstates (presently consists of 130,000 miles of devoted highways in North America) when you make it possible for adaptive cruise control with the lane-centering function.

The system appears to work perfectly however my disappointment is that it didnt work on lots of regional highways in my area, only major Interstate roadways.
