Today while driving on the freeway, I moved onto the left shoulder to avoid a trash bag that was taking half my lane. Lane assist attempted to steer me back into the trash bag.
I have had the same thing happen while avoiding pot holes.
I have had several cases where lane assist tried to push me back into the lane when I was keeping clear of cars that were having trouble staying in their lane. Often shortly followed by beeping and a "Take control immediately" error even though none of the auto drive features were enabled.
This is a feature that I would turn off if I could.
It is rather irritating to have something grab the wheel and try to steer me back into the thing I'm trying to avoid.
I can't think of a single instance where it has intervened appropriately.
