    I had a 2018 Subaru Cosstrek with Lane Keep Assistant and then upgraded to a 2020 Forester with Lane Centering. I very much preferred the Lane Keep Assist because it didn’t feel like I was fighting the car as often happens with Lane Centering in the Forester.

    I sold a new 2022 model back to the dealer as these nanny systems drove me crazy. I live in a rural town, with lane and shoulder markings in “moderate” condition. The car was always flashing on the dash about the status of it trying to monitor where the lanes were. The first time I used LKA, I thought it was great as the weather was deteriorating and there was a strong cross-wind… it was great for one minute before the camera(s) got wet/dirty due to the weather, and shut down ALL of the safety systems… with much fanfare of beeps and flashing. So it seems these systems are fair weather friends for those who drive on perfect roads.
