Lane keep assist problems
 
Probably a good idea to be cautious when using the lane keep assist because motortrend says it's too sensitive and not that great around bends. It can only make minor corrections and I assume that's on straight roads. There's also the problem of it's sensitivity when it alerts you to put your hands on the wheel. Sometimes with both hands gripping the wheel, the alert is still triggered to the point where lane keep assist turns off by itself.

Maybe it's just their Stinger GT that has this problem.

That system is only meant to keep you within clearly defined lines/barriers. Them thinking that it would be useful to navigate any kind of turn or bend in the road is pretty uneducated.

The sensitivity issue is another matter but could be addressed with an update in the future if Kia deems it is actually not working properly.

Yeah lane keep assist is a good bit different than semi autonomous driving assistance, which is what they seem to be testing for. I'm sure it can be tweaked and I hope that it can be outright disabled. I don't like these systems that interfere with steering.

These technologies are still very new to me and it wasn't until last year when i felt comfortable enough to use the older cruise control feature that just locks in your speed. Even then, it wasn't used on larger freeways with more than two lanes. We're still very far away from autonomous cruiser control and with how poorly kept some roads are, I wouldn't try using lane keep assist until years later.
I can definitely see the appeal, but the risk isn't worth it and I've been driving fine without all these fancy tech systems for years.

Luckily these kind of systems have been prioritized in electrics, as a big selling point for them is new technology. Not sure we'll see a hybrid/electric trim of the Stinger, so I don't think we'll need to worry about adapting to all those new systems here. I've heard lane keep assist can be a little unreliable, depending on the quality of road you're driving on.

Interesting note, the adaptive cruise control cannot be turned off so it works like the old cruise control and you can't use it when traction control is turned off. These systems are just harder to use than necessary.

I want to say that these systems can be disabled by pulling a fuse but I bet down the road they will get smart and batch it with a main body fuse, thus rendering pulling the fuse to cause more problems than anything good.

It's not as simple as pulling a fuse especially with how integrated all the electronics are these days. You'll probably need to mess with the vehicle's computers to modify the adaptive cruise control system.

My Stinger Premium in LKAS mode negotiates well-marked, mild curves with no problem. I am in love with adaptive cruise control ... WONDERFUL. I keep mine in max following distance.

Have you by any chance been playing with the follow distance? Don't own a Stinger yet but I believe this tailored approach is the true answer.
