I think one of the issues with fuzzy systems is that real-life systems
seldom exhibit ideal linear behavior; PID systems can be unstable or
conditionally-stable on such systems and changing system behavior can
change controller response. While fuzzy systems will seldom have closed-
loop behavior as good as a perfectly-tuned PID system, they can often be
made less sensitive to system characteristics.
As a (very) rough analogy, a camera lens which is designed to focus perfectly
at a certain distance will be very sensitive to changes in that distance;
objects at other distances will be out of focus. By contrast, a lens which
is focuses less well at is focusing distance may blur less at other distances.
The extreme example of this is a pinhole camera which blurs objects at all
distances roughly uniformly.
