This is cool and am sure it’s in the works for this van no doubt. We will see
Thank you, @PacHY2019Smity84 - I just bought a used, 2019, Pacifica Hybrid Limited. I bought it for the ACC and LKA. Two GREAT features .... with so much [untapped] potential .... until I found your thread! I think it's awesome that you're diving into this and posting your results. I see all the negative on this thread, but you just have to let that go. Imagine the crap the owners of the first car got, the first motorcycle, or the Wright brothers! As long as you understand what it is, what it does, what it DOESN'T do, and that you're ready to jump in and take over when needed, I don't see what the issue is. Now if you're putting your 5 year old in the driver's seat so you can step in the back and fix yourself a drink - I hope they lock you up and throw away the key! (LOL!) But you don't seem like that kind of guy. I'd like to hear more, and I'll be ordering one as soon as my warranty is up. Thanks for sharing!
let alone even with the modification on the car you would be guilty of altering the MFG design and capability. **** you can’t even alter an exhaust from mfg design without breaking federal law. You are hanging it out to get chopped.You can say to each their own, but you’re sharing the road with others and risking their lives, too. I’m an attorney, and can’t imagine ever being willing to take on the kind of risk you’re assuming. Beyond lives, you’re putting your financial future at risk, too. Have you asked your insurance company if your policy is valid while using this?
This is beating a dead horse. The legality and risk of liability has been discussed throughout this thread. We each have our own opinions and I sincerely appreciate the concerns that some of the forum members have brought up. Others have sought to judge very quickly and have taken an open discussion to put others down. I am all for advocating your position, especially if you are trying to convince others to not do something you deem unsafe. In my opinion however, this enhances the safety system of my car. I am still in control of the vehicle and responsible for it’s safe operation.let alone even with the modification on the car you would be guilty of altering the MFG design and capability. **** you can’t even alter an exhaust from mfg design without breaking federal law.

As discussed, I am aware of the liability that I take on by using this system. If I cause an accident with my vehicle I can be sued, regardless if Open Pilot was installed or not. I also understand that you are making the point that it puts a target on me for using the system. I am not disputing that.You must be thinking criminal law, for some reason. What you need to consider is tort liability.
That’s quite the garage! Not weird at all though. I completely agree!One a side note....I own the Pacifica, a 94 Landcruiser and a 17 CTS V, is it weird that I gravitate towards the Pacifica just so I can use openpilot???
I do not believe that is true. Show me a “federal law” that I would be breaking by altering the MFG design and capability. If it was true then we wouldn’t be able to put different sized tires or wheels on our cars, install a 3rd party sunroof, install aftermarket brake rotors, install window tinting, etc, etc, etc.let alone even with the modification on the car you would be guilty of altering the MFG design and capability. **** you can’t even alter an exhaust from mfg design without breaking federal law.
