I had a very surprising event yesterday while driving on the highway. I understand the concept of lane assist and pilot assist which takes the clues from the signal inputted by the driver. There are times however, that signal input cannot be put in and this is when I found out the pilot assist actually battles and interfere with the driver. Let me elaborate.
I was driving in the middle lane when all of the sudden, the car to my left drifted into my lane. I was able in a microsecond to look at my right side mirror and saw that there were no cars in my blind spot and I steered into the right lane to avoid the car to my left. Since I didn't signal, my pilot assist thought I was drifting and yanked me back into my lane to correct the drift. I had to literally fight off the pilot assist (which thank goodness was doable albeit it seems to warn me by causing some sort of a steering wheel rumble/vibration). I believe the pilot assist yielded when I applied my brakes but I am not sure (any input is appreciated).
This option is obviously a life saver when you are over tired, fall a sleep while still holding tight to the steering wheel. Either it will bring you back or the rumble will wake you up.
We just have to be extra aware of this when we do have to swerve to avoid contact.
