Went out in the wife's SEAT this afternoon and forget the fact that I forgot you had to use the clutch and stalled the car at the first set of trafic lights, I must say that I was shocked that how much easier it's to drive the tiggy down the road with the lane assist, I must of looked like a drunk driver in the SEAT I was all over the road, and I for one thought the lane assist was a waist of time

Each to their own but we couldn't turn ours off fast enough after collecting the Tig

Certainly a strange feeling initially, I'll try for a little longer but may switch off if I can't get used to it.

Mine is off 90% of the time. The remaining 10% is when I'm on dual carriage way for long periods or motorway where it becomes amazing thing to have

I have every safety system on. No point being a hero. No point having the system if you don't use it. In saying that, you really should be able to stay within your lane without it ;)

My issue with it was when switching lanes on a dual carriageway, a very strange feeling.

Can't really say I've ever had issues with staying in lane previously so ours will be staying off. Like I say each to their own but it definitely was not for us.

I thought it turned itself off for a few seconds if you indicate before changing lanes as it then knows to expect a lane change.

It may well do, can't say I tested it - however I can't say I always indicate out and back in again on a quiet dual carriageway with nothing behind me

Perhaps try using the indicators and it momentarily deactivated it......

It may well do, do you indicate out and back in again on quiet dual carriageways with nothing behind you every single time?? I'm sorry but I do not (awful driver).

Like I say really wasn't for me but that's just my opinion.....

I did the advanced driving course and was instructed to never indicate unless there was someone there to see it. The reasoning was that you should avoid it becoming an automatic thing and get complacent about it. Was also taught not to indicate to pull back in from an overtake on a dual carriageway/motorway, as it's unnecessary if you're leaving good spacing to the vehicle behind.

I switched on the Lane Assist during my test drive but didn't really know what it was until it cut in a couple of times and it was only afterwards that I realised what the "dodgy steering" actually was. :lol:

I would indicate out and back in, makes it look like you're doing something intentional and not wandering around!

Totally agree.... how is the car in front (vehicle being overtaken) supposed to know what you are doing? If you indicate to move out and then in again all drivers know what is happening.

But surely if you're overtaking someone on a dual carriageway, and pulling back in again, the there is someone there to see it. ;)

See the paragraph that starts "However..." - http://www.iam-bristol.org.uk/index.php/articles/associate-s-guide/56-signalling

I'm not saying anyone is wrong, I'm just saying I was taught that unnecessary indicating should be avoided, and that indicating left after a safely executed overtake was unnecessary.

Anyway, I'll be leaving Lane Assist on for safety's sake and will learn to live with it. 😊
