    It's such a nice feature to have on long road trips when you get fatigued, I LOVE it, well worth the additional cost of the teck pkg.

    The fact that the ACC turns off after a few seconds of coming to a stop in highway traffic bugs me. Why would it turn off and start me rolling into the car in front of me? It's not that I am not paying attention, trust me, I am hovering on the brakes to make sure the vehicle stops. My wife's 2017 Pacifica with ACC did come to a complete stop and would hold stopped even when the car in front started moving again. All you had to do is hit resume and on you go. This seems like a safer way to me. Not sure when/why the changed it. Or is it different in Chryslers? You wouldn't think so. Anyone from FCA have an answer on this?

    To start with they didn't have complete stop capability...that was added later so it could still be used in stop and go traffic on the highway.
    I think it holds for about 3-5 sec before releasing as its not for use in city traffic or for autonomous driving.
    I seem to remember it warning before releasing the brakes too.

    Yes. My 2017 has stop-and-go. It will bring the vehicle to a complete stop and if the car ahead of you moves within two seconds it picks right back up. The two seconds starts counting from the moment the wheels stop and one thing about it that I like is that the truck brings itself to a very gradual stop effectively adding to that two seconds. Once stopped, it will beep just as it releases the brakes. You have to be mindful because it WILL roll into the car ahead of you if you don't pick up the braking. Read what I wrote above about maintaining situational awareness. This is not a "take nap" or "play on your phone" system!

    This what the Durango has always had, it is not Stop & Go. The Stop & Go feature will hold until the vehicle in front starts moving again, could be 30 seconds, not 3

    Semantics. It brings it to a complete stop and the it goes. Hence it is Stop & Go. In regular stop and go morning traffic all I do is steer. Works great for me.
