BLIND SPOT ASSIST

WARNING

Blind spot assist is a supplement to, not a replacement for, a safe driving style and use of the door mirrors and rear-view mirrors. The feature may not function under all speeds, weather, and road conditions. Drive safely at all times, and use the door mirrors and rear-view mirrors to avoid accidents.

Blind spot assist is an enhancement of the blind spot monitor system. The blind spot assist feature uses the same radar, on each side of the vehicle, to determine the possible risk of a side collision, when a lane change maneuver is initiated.

When a lane change maneuver is made while a risk is detected, the amber warning vehicle icon flashes in the relevant door mirror. At the same time, a rotational force is automatically applied to the steering wheel to counter the lane change. The applied force indicates that a steering correction should be made to avoid the risk of a collision. The rotational force can still be overridden to make a lane change.

While a risk continues to be detected, the blind spot monitor system amber warning vehicle icon flashes.

Blind spot assist can be enabled or disabled through the instrument panel menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

Blind spot assist is disabled when the vehicle's speed falls below 40 mph (64 km/h).

NOTES

When the blind spot monitor system is disabled, the blind spot assist is also disabled. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.
