I love my Palisade except for how often it improperly detects a "phantom" car ahead in my lane, causing it to slow drastically when it doesn't need to. Typically there is a vehicle in the other lane and I suspect it somehow has to do with shadows and/or glare from the other vehicle in addition to the vehicle itself being present.

When it happens, the other vehicle isn't particularly close to the middle lines, and neither am I.

I could easily see how this could cause an accident if a car behind me is caught off-guard.

Anyone else having this problem?

I have a first run Limited model, bought it in August 2019 or so, first unit sold in my region, so maybe there have been updates since? I have taken it in for general service at my dealership but not for this specifically, yet.
