WARNINGS

  • Never wait for a crash warning. When driving you are responsible for maintaining the correct distance and speed, even when the system is used.
  • The system will only react to vehicles in front of you traveling in the same direction and will not react to slow or stationary vehicles.
  • Never drive in a manner to provoke the system. The system is designed to assist in emergencies only.
  • Warnings may be absent, triggered late or triggered unnecessarily due to detection beam issues. See Using Adaptive Cruise Control

Note: The brake support system only reduces the crash speed if you brake immediately once alerted.

Note: If you depress the brake pedal quick enough, you will maintain full braking. This is regardless of how much force you apply to the pedal.

Note: Brake support prepares the braking system for rapid braking by gently applying the brake. You may notice a slight jerk.

Note: Crash alerts will only occur when you switch the system on. Brake support is always on and you can not turn it off.

Note: You can use the system with or without switching the adaptive cruise control system on.

Note: The system uses the same radar sensors as adaptive cruise control and therefore has the same limitations. See Using Adaptive Cruise Control

The system is designed to assist you by warning you of the risk of a crash with the vehicle in front of you.

The system is designed to alert you by warning chimes and a visual warning in the information display.

Brake support is turned on to enable full braking effectiveness and reduce the severity of a crash with the vehicle in front of you.

Switching the System On and Off

You can switch the system on and off using the information display.

Note:When you switch the system off, a warning indicator will remain illuminated in the information display. See Warning Lamps and Indicators

Note: The system status and settings will remain unchanged each time you switch the ignition on.

Adjusting the Warning Sensitivity

This will determine how early the system alerts you. You can adjust the sensitivity using the steering wheel controls.
