PARK ASSIST LIMITATIONS

WARNING

Park assist is a supplement to, and not a replacement for, good observation and a safe driving style. The driver is responsible for driving at all times, to make sure that reversing maneuvers are carried out safely.

CAUTION

When washing the vehicle, do not aim high pressure water jets directly at any of the sensors. Do not use abrasive materials, or hard or sharp objects, to clean the sensors. Only use approved vehicle shampoo.
