Now this is something that I also like about the car.

That being said, because I drive alot on the freeway and city... there's a ton of potholes everywhere, especially when Winter is over due to the salt and other things...



Most annoying thing is driving into the potholes.

The Fusion has developed the technology to detect these potholes:

Quote:

"The technology ensures to detect holes in the road time and to hold the wheel firmly so that it has no chance to fall into it....

For this to work smoothly, analyzed an onboard computer, the signals it continually receives from twelve high-resolution sensors. Using this information, it prepares the shock absorbers every two milliseconds on the best response to the road conditions. Determine the sensors the edge of a pothole, the computer ensures faster than a blink of the eye that the damper stays up, does not fall into the hole and softly lands on the other side. Simultaneously, the rear shock is commissioned to behave at the crucial moment just."

It's one of the features i've been anxious to try out especially when driving an older vehicle that has no special suspension technology like this. Also, even when pot holes get patched, not always are they patched properly, actually some are patched so poorly it becomes a speed hump, and we all know how slow government is to react to most road repairs, which makes a system like this benefit a massive percentage of us here.

Thanks for sharing the video!

I totally agree with you on that.

I too would like to try out this feature on the car. These darn potholes ruin the car's mechanic :(

It's true how the government responds to it slow too... Mind you it's not only that, but the road closure that it causes further delay.

If only the roads were smoother... that's like asking mother nature... don't snow. lol
