Just don't turn it on?

When we were picking up our 19 Civic, the salesman was bragging about Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist, etc. I said "How do you turn it off?". He looked at me like I'm nuts. "Why would you want to turn it off?"

Well, I know how to drive. 'Passed a Driver's Ed course 100 years ago. I pay attention. And I don't have a cell phone fused to my ear...

I switch it to regular cc on major highways because I'm usually going faster than other vehicles and it just holds me back.

Honestly not sure had to hit buttons in different sequences until it switched over to "Cruise" mode as indicated on the dashboard. I tried doing it with main button and not having the green ACC and LKAS lit up but I think I had to have them lit and then held down the distance button until it beeped and switched over. Was at a traffic light when it did so, maybe try doing it in Drive and not Park, don't try it while driving.

Switching between ACC/CC mode is easy. Can do it while driving or stopped. The trick is, you have to have the Main ACC/CC turned on (so that the LKAS is lit up green on the dash, and if you hit set, it will engage the ACC/CC) BUT you must NOT have ACC/CC engaged. Then press and hold the "set spacing" toggle button on the right side of the d-pad for 2 sec and it will beep at you and switch between ACC and CC modes. If you try this while the ACC/CC mode is engaged it will just take that keypress as you desiring to change your set ACC spacing (in ACC mode; no response I believe in CC mode, never tried it). And obviously nothing happens if you try this while the MAIN is turned off.

In ACC mode, the speedometer setting is blank (between the LKAS and other green indicator) when ACC is not engaged and it shows the set speed with the dashed car outline (car in front of you radar) when engaged. In CC mode, it shows "CC mode" in grey lettering instead of the blank space/set speed with dashed car outline when CC is not engaged and changes it to green lettering when you engage CC and set a speed (but does not show your set speed). IIRC I posted on this before including some screenshots if you need that - search prior posts for ACC/turning on CC mode (can't recall exactly).

So dumb of Honda. Why not show the set speed FOR BOTH MODES and show the dashed (radar) car outline for ACC mode and the "CC mode" lettering for CC mode (duh)? Having a CC mode that doesn't show set speed (when you KNOW the car/dash has the capability to display it) is just lazy on Honda's part. I know, first world problems...
And yes, I now run with CC mode most of the time as the inconsistent ACC is just frustrating for someone line me who learned to drive on the Chicago highways. And yeah, like Louuuu above I actually pay attention while I drive and don't need the robot overlords to tell me when to pass and what spacing to use. It's like the Honda engineers only thought incompetent Methuselahs would be driving their cars the way they have the ACC and the rest of the radar/safety system programmed... :rolleyes:
