I also find the side assist to be too conservative when there are two car length worth of gap when changing lanes. Mercedes Side Assist has this dead on. Anyone on the same boat with me? Thanks
I've been having issues with side assist in my SQ5 where it's indicating that there's a car in my driver's side blind spot when there isn't a car anywhere near me.
I brought this up to the SA at my 8k service, but they found nothing.
According to the service report they did a "recalibration" and the problem seemed to go away for a month or so, but now I see that it's starting to act up again... Very strange (and annoying).
In my experience, I don't have to be anywhere near the 407 for this to happen.
