COLLISION AVOIDANCE SAFETY

Make sure the following warnings have been read and fully understood before driving the vehicle. Failure to use the collision avoidance systems safely could result in an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

WARNING

Collision avoidance systems are not a substitute for driving safely, with due care and attention. Staying alert, driving safely, and being in control of the vehicle at all times is the responsibility of the driver.

WARNING

Blind spot driving aids are a supplement to, not a replacement for, a safe driving style.

WARNING

The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention, and in a safe manner for the vehicle, the occupants, and other road users. The driver is responsible for detecting obstacles, and estimating the vehicle's distance from them, when manoeuvring the vehicle. The driver should observe all road signs, road markings and any potential braking situations, and act appropriately.

WARNING

Always use the door and rear-view mirrors. Drive safely at all times, and use the door and rear-view mirrors to help avoid accidents.

WARNING

Blind spot driving aids may not function at all speeds, or in all weather conditions.

WARNING

Blind spot driving aids do not correct errors of judgement when driving.

WARNING

The radar and camera sensors used by the blind spot driving aids may become impaired by mud, rain, frost, ice, snow, road spray, etc. The blind spot driving aids ability to detect a vehicle in the driver’s blind spot may subsequently be affected and may give false indications.

WARNING

Do not attach stickers or objects to the rear bumper or to the windscreen. Operation of the blind spot sensors and camera may subsequently become impaired. The blind spot driving aids ability to detect a vehicle in the driver’s blind spot may subsequently be affected and may give false indications.

WARNING

Do not attach stickers or other objects to the door mirrors, as the blind spot icons and indicators may become obscured. Obscuring the icons and indicators could increase the risk of a collision during a vehicle manoeuvre.

WARNING

The blind spot monitor system may not be able to give adequate warning of vehicles approaching very quickly from behind.

WARNING

The blind spot monitor system may not be able to detect all vehicles and may also detect objects such as roadside barriers, etc.

WARNING

Do not use blind spot assist when a trailer is connected. The trailer may provide miscalculations or false indications. False indications could increase the risk of a collision during a vehicle manoeuvre.

WARNING

The radar sensor must be calibrated if it is replaced, its mounting is replaced, or it becomes misaligned, e.g., as a result of impact damage. Contact a retailer/authorised repairer.

NOTES

The radar sensor is approved for use in all member countries covered under the Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (RTTE) directive.
