I used to think that too (in fact I think I said the same darn thing). Up until we got. However the experience was otherwise. With things like ACC, active lane keep assist, and other driver aids I find that long drives are not as tiring since the vehicle is taking care of many small corrections instead of the driver. As a result the driver is less fatigued and better able to pay attention to the big picture.My opinion is that all these new options that take away the act of driving from the driver, makes us lazy and there for makes us a worse driver.
Now my JL doesn't have anything but basic cruise and I'm good with that. Driving a Wrangler is NOTHING like driving a Honda and is by nature a more engaging experience. Our first long drive is coming up (350 miles to Yosemite for the weekend) so we'll see how engaging it is over the long haul. But just the simple fact of climbing into a Wrangler is more exciting than any other car I've owned... I am confident that excitement will carry on through the long and winding roads
