Within The 15 Seconds, I Was Down To 35 Mph From The 75 I Was Traveling. I Had The Accelerator Floored, But Could Not Get Any Power To Keep Up With The Flow Of Traffic. With My Hazard Lights Turned On. My Car And I Safely Navigated To The Side Of The Road. Thank Goodness There Was Not A Car Following To Close Or A Semi Truck.

The Acc (active Cruise Control) Surprisingly Stops Working When Facing A Bright Sun. This Happens Often, But It Took Me A While To Understand What Was Happening. It Is Very Dangerous At High Speeds If Someone Is Behind Me. When The Sun Hits The Camera, The Acc Shuts Down (with A Warning On The Screen) And The Regen Braking System Kicks In Causing The Car To Slow Down Much More Than Coasting. I Have Been Told That The Brake Lights Go On, But If A Car Is Following And Traffic Conditions Do Not Suggest That Our Car Should Be Braking, The Car Could Rear End Us. The i3 Only Has A Camera To Run The Acc. In Other Cars, There Are Both Cameras And Radar. Our 2011 Mkx Has An Intelligent Cc And It Never Cuts Out Because, I Have Been Told, It Uses Radar. I Have Found Several Posts On The Internet With Other Drivers Having Similar Such Problems – Here Is One. Http://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3059 Of Course, I Can Avoid This Problem By Not Using The Acc, But It Is One Of The Options I Wanted And Paid For On The i3. We Have Not Been In An Accident Thankfully, But Perhaps Others Have. Other Than This Very Dangerous Situation, The i3 Is A Superb Car.
