Parking Your Vehicle

u

When Stopped

Driving

Always set the parking brake, in particular if you are parked on an incline.

1

When Stopped

In extremely cold temperatures, the parking brake 
may freeze up if applied. If such temperatures are 
expected, do not apply the parking brake but, if 
parking on a slope, either turn the front wheels so 
they will contact the curb if the vehicle rolls down the 
slope or block the wheels to keep the vehicle from 
moving. If you do not take either precaution, the 
vehicle may roll unexpectedly, leading to a crash.

Even when the system is on, always confirm if there is 
no obstacle near your vehicle before parking.

The system may not work properly when:

The sensors are covered with snow, ice, mud or 
dirt.

The vehicle is on uneven surface, such as grass, 
bumps, or a hill.

The vehicle has been out in hot or cold weather.

The system is affected by devices that emit 
ultrasonic waves.

Driving in bad weather.

The system may not sense:

Thin or low objects.

Sonic-absorptive materials, such as snow, cotton, 
or sponge.

Objects directly under the bumper.

Do not put any accessories on or around the sensors.

When you set the power mode to ON, the system will 
be in the previously selected condition.

Cross Traffic Monitor

CAUTION

Cross Traffic Monitor cannot detect all 
approaching vehicles and may not detect 
an approaching vehicle at all.

Failure to visually confirm that it is safe to 
back up the vehicle before doing so may 
result in a collision.

Do not solely rely on the system when 
reversing; always also use your mirrors, and 
look behind and to the sides of your vehicle 
before reversing.

The transmission is in 

(

R

.

Your vehicle is moving at 3 mph (5 km/h) or 
lower.

When a vehicle is detected approaching from a rear corner, Cross Traffic Monitor 
alerts you with a buzzer and a displayed warning.

The system will not detect a vehicle that approaches from directly behind your 
vehicle, nor will it provide alerts about a detected vehicle when it moves directly 
behind your vehicle.

The system does not provide alerts for a vehicle that is moving away from your 
vehicle, and it may alert for pedestrians, bicycles, or stationary objects.

How the System Works

1

Cross Traffic Monitor

*

Cross Traffic Monitor may not detect or may delay 
alerting an approaching vehicle, or may alert without 
an approaching vehicle under the following 
conditions:

An obstacle, such as another vehicle and a wall, 
near your vehicle’s rear bumper, is blocking the 
radar sensor’s scope.

Your vehicle is moving at the speed of about 3 mph 
(5 km/h) or higher.

A vehicle is approaching at the speed other than 
between about 6 mph (10 km/h) and 16 mph (25 
km/h).

The system picks up external interference such as 
other radar sensors from another vehicle or strong 
radio wave transmitted from a facility nearby.

Either corner of the rear bumper is covered with 
snow, ice, mud or dirt.

When there is bad weather.

Your vehicle is on an incline.

Your vehicle is tilted due to a heavy load in the rear.

Your vehicle is reversing towards a wall, a pole, a 
vehicle, and so on.

The rear bumper or the sensors have been 
improperly repaired or the rear bumper has been 
deformed.

Have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

About Your Multi-View Rear Camera

The rear camera view is restricted. You cannot see 
the corner ends of the bumper or what is underneath 
the bumper. Its unique lens also makes objects 
appear closer or farther than they actually are.

Visually confirm that it is safe to drive before backing 
up. Certain conditions (such as weather, lighting, and 
high temperatures) may also restrict the rear view. Do 
not rely on the rearview display which does not give 
you all information about conditions at the back of 
your vehicle.

If the camera lens is covered with dirt or moisture, 
use a soft, moist cloth to keep the lens clean and free 
of debris.
