Not anything I have noticed
I am not an expert on VSC but I think it has got something to do with it. I found the description on the owners manual. It may be experiencing some hiccups. Here is the description below:Didn't feel like the car was braking. Nope. Didn't seem like collision detection. The cars ahead of me had long increased the gap when the lights went green. And no, no beeping no flashing alarm on the center screen. Felt like the car was in neutral but the rpms didn't shoot up at all, just didn't respond for those moments, when it did it was a bit sluggish, then all of a sudden fine. If it happens when I'm trying to move out into fast traffic, like getting on a feeder road from a parking lot, where everyone is speeding trying to get on the freeway. Well, yikes. Freaking vote of no confidence. Hasn't happened since. Knock on wood.
Haven't experienced runner medic's phenomenon though. I use cruise a lot, and frequently step on the pedal to increase speed and then turn it off. Never have had a problem in that situation.
What I've read about collision detection so far is that it will auto brake if no action is taken after the alarm has been set off. And I've read elsewhere that some cars automatically decrease throttle when the brake is pressed as a safety feature. Didn't feel like there was braking or drag.
Good to knowWell, I got a code reader and the car is completely clear. No codes at all. No recurrence of incident. knock on wood again.
I'm beginning to think the electronics "crashed" or had a bad "boot up". At first service I'll inquire if there are any software updates.
Loving the car though.
