    Itís a good way to turn a $200 windshield replacement into a gong show. Some windshields that have collision avoidance or lane keep systems on the windshield need the sensors recalibrated after you replace the windshield. And theyíre more expensive than non equipped cars. I donít know or care if some donít require this but itís just another thing that might seem neat until down the road.

    Sorry, I am a driving instructor, too!

    I joke with my student drivers all the time. We'll drive through a Walmart parking lot & people react to the car coming at them before we stop. I joke about their overreaction, because what are the odds of both of us not hitting our brakes? I can stop the driver's education car on a dime with the dual brakes. We are probably the safety car in the parking lot. I also tell them that I don't want head imprints on my car. It's not a good look for a driver's education car. A little old lady with a walker would probably dent the car even more!

    Since many of us own older models without FCM, it's not going to be covered in our Mirage owner's manuals. What does your owner's manual say about it?
    That video is a hoot!

    FCM deciphered (I think!) For 2021 hatchback of ours the thing is always on. Occasionally it thinks it sees something to squawk about and will beep and flash an icon at the top of the right-hand flashy icon panel (to the right of speedometer). You are permitted to turn this thing off by a long push of the FCM button hidden behind sterring wheel left. Your reward for turning this off are TWO icons lit in the righthand flashy icon panel, the top icon flshing steady on and off and a chime sounding in synch with all the flashy crap. A sane person will make a short push of the FCM button and kill the noise and flashing. This is in the operators manual described with English words is some strange order.

    I didn't even think about this.

    I don't know what year your Eclipse Cross is, but

    All Mirage trim levels received "Forward Collision Mitigation system (FCM) with Pedestrian Detection" in 2021.

    SE trim level also has lane departure warning (LDW), automatic headlights, & automatic high beam (AHB).

    BE & SE has things like fog lights & rain sensing wipers.

    yes it is and its useless!!! The only one I found to work good is Honda's and then Toyotas, the rest are just a marketing ploy.

    Frankly I wish they added radar cruise control vs this useless crap, since that will save you gas!

    The radar is in the bumper, the top is a camera for detecting objects that may come in front of you!

    How does FCM work on a 5MT? Does it actuate the clutch?

    I have not read how a manual Mirage works specifically, but I believe most manufacturers are making it where the vehicle stalls if you don't engage the clutch when the brakes are automatically applied. Thus, someone driving a manual with this feature would have to restart their vehicle after the auto emergency stop has engaged.

    Here's an article on it -

    This made me laugh. Imagine if the car could depress the clutch for you like that new million dollar Pagani. The clutch is 100% mechanical. I think in the toyota corolla If you rapidly depress the clutch after the stall the engine will auto restart, i think its a part of their intelligent rev matching system.

    Generally speaking just like all manual cars with emergency braking stalling is an acceptable thing to do when avoiding a collision.
