A smart cruise control - like on my old Primera T-Spec, a laser scanner on the front of the car so it could follow the traffic in front, as well as a measure of early breaking when the traffic slows. It was brilliant, I really miss it.

Oooh, I'm not so sure about that..... that would be a bit freaky relying on a laser to brake for you...

Well yes, you have to stay awake. But it transforms a minor gimic into a really useful tool.

I use cruise control quite a lot when i'm driving. I can't stand driving cars without it now days. Actually I simply won't buy a car without it. Period.

I agree - I find CC very useful on quiet motorways

once you've had it a while and incorporated it into your driving style, you really miss it!

Also it makes breaking the limit far harder to do!

On my Laguna you could adjust the cruising speed with +/- buttons on the steering wheel.  I realised how much I miss that when I was using the CC on my QQ on a long drive yesterday.  I had to keep braking/cancelling CC when coming up on another car when someone was in the lane next to me and I couldn't overtake.  On the Laguna I could have just put the speed down a couple of mph to match the speed of the car in front, then when the car next overtakes, I speed back up again and overtake.  Makes the CC less of a chore than it needs to be.

Unless your cruise is different from the one on my Qashqai, you can do the same on the Qashqai.

If you have it, then it's worth flicking through the manual. The Qashqai has a bunch of clever little features like that, but some are FAR from intuitive.

This is true, if you combine the CC with the sat nav using the "take me home" function" you can have a nap & let the car take you  to  your door on its own. (unless you live in some flats, then it  will drop you off  near the  stairs)

When doing that it's important to press the "privacy" button to make the windows go black.

Especially the windscreen so that the light from the oncoming headlights doesn't wake you up and spoil the whole experience WinkSmile
