PARKING FEATURES SAFETY

Make sure the following warnings and cautions have been read and fully understood before driving the vehicle.

Failure to use the parking systems safely could result in damage to the vehicle, or an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

WARNING

The sensors for the parking systems do not detect moving objects, such as children and animals, until the objects are dangerously close. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention during low speed maneuvers.

WARNING

The parking features are driving aids only. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention during parking maneuvers.

WARNING

The driver must maintain full control of the accelerator and brake pedals throughout the parking maneuvers.

WARNING

All sensors must be kept clean and free from debris or obstructions, e.g., leaves, mud, snow, ice, frost, or insects. Failure to keep the sensors clean may result in sensor miscalculation or false indications.

WARNING

The parking features must not be used if a sensor is damaged, or the bumper is damaged sufficiently enough to affect a sensor mounting point. Failing to follow these guidelines may result in sensor miscalculation or false indications.

WARNING

The parking features must not be used if a sensor is obstructed by items attached to the vehicle, e.g., bumper covers, a cycle rack, or stickers. Failing to follow these guidelines may result in sensor miscalculations or false indications.

WARNING

When using the park assist feature, the parking exit mode operates only when the vehicle has been parallel parked. Parking exit does not maneuver the vehicle from a perpendicular parking space. The driver is responsible and must not use parking exit mode to exit a perpendicular parking space.

WARNING

When using the park assist feature, do not perform a parking exit maneuver until instructions display on the touchscreen.

WARNING

Although the vehicle takes control during the parking or exiting maneuver, the driver must maintain full control of the accelerator and brake pedals throughout. When the maneuver is not as expected, take control of the steering and make any necessary adjustments.

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings and cautions have been read and understood before operating the touchscreen. See TOUCHSCREEN SAFETY.

CAUTION

The parking features sensors may also be externally influenced by noise generated from air brakes, emergency vehicles, motorcycles, pneumatic drills, and high wind. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention during low speed maneuvers.

CAUTION

The sensors for the parking systems may not detect some obstructions. For example, narrow posts or small objects close to the ground. Objects above sensor level may not be detected, e.g., when approaching a flatbed truck, the protruding part of the flatbed may not be detected. Additionally, the parking system operation may be limited, when maneuvering the vehicle near wooden objects, e.g., a wooden post.

CAUTION

Do not aim a high pressure water jet directly at any of the sensors when washing the vehicle. Only use approved vehicle shampoo. Do not use abrasive materials, or hard or sharp objects, to clean the sensors. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in damage to the system or cause a system fault.

CAUTION

Particular care must be taken when using the parking features if accessories are fitted to the front or rear of the vehicle. For example, a cycle rack mounted in a position where it obstructs operation of the parking sensor(s). If the affected sensor(s) is obstructed, the sensor(s) only indicates the distance from the bumper to the cycle rack. Any obstacle beyond the detected accessory may not be indicated on the touchscreen display.

CAUTION

Park assist must not be used if a temporary spare wheel is in use.

CAUTION

Park assist must not be used if the vehicle is being used to transport a load that extends beyond the vehicle’s perimeter.

CAUTION

When using the park assist feature, do not use parking exit when leaving a perpendicular parking space. Parking exit is programmed for leaving only a parallel parking space. Damage to the vehicle, or surrounding objects, may occur if parking exit is used when leaving a perpendicular parking space.
