Hi Everybody. I am Metromike from Orlando. I bought my new ST a few months ago when they first arrived in Central Florida.
The issue that is driving me crazy is the backup brake assist. When you turn it off it doesn't stay turned off even when it's in towing mode and you're trying to back your boat down a ramp. The abrupt stop is aggravating at the very least. It also doesn't like the bushes this alongside my driveway because sometimes it stops when I'm simply driving past them.
That's enough for the problems! Overall it's a beautiful car with plenty of power and more computer aids than I certainly need. This is my second forward with adaptive cruise control and I wouldn't own another car without it. I'm glad to be on the forum and look forward to visiting with my fellow members. I welcome your observations and thoughts!

I agree on the backup assist. If you shut it off, I wish it would stay off after the next key cycle automatically till you turn it back on.
