In this case, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist cannot be set from the Settings menu and the ( ) warning light will appear on the cluster which is normal. If ESC is turned on by pressing the ESC OFF button again, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist will maintain the last setting.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist does not operate in all situations or cannot avoid all collisions.
  • The driver should hold the responsibility to control the vehicle. Do not solely depend on Forward Collision- Avoidance Assist. Rather, maintain a safe braking distance, and if necessary, depress the brake pedal to reduce driving speed or to stop the vehicle.
  • Never deliberately operate Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist on people, objects, etc. It may cause serious injury or death.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not operate if the driver depresses the brake pedal to avoid collision.
  • Depending on the road and driving conditions, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may warn the driver late or may not warn the driver.
  • During Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist operation, the vehicle may stop suddenly injuring passengers and shifting loose objects. Always have the seat belt on and keep loose objects secured.
  • If any other function's warning message is displayed or audible warning is generated, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist warning message may not be displayed and audible warning may not be generated.
  • You may not hear the warning sound of Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist if the surroundings are noisy.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may turn off or may not operate properly or may operate unnecessarily depending on the road conditions and the surroundings.
  • Even if there is a problem with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, the vehicle's basic braking performance will operate normally.
  • During emergency braking, braking control by Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist will automatically cancel when the driver excessively depresses the accelerator pedal or sharply steers the vehicle.


  • Depending on the condition of the vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist in front and the surroundings, the speed range to operate Forward Collision- Avoidance Assist may reduce. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may only warn the driver, or it may not operate.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist will operate under certain conditions by judging the risk level based on the condition of the oncoming vehicle, driving direction, speed and surroundings.


  • In a situation where collision is imminent, braking may be assisted by Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist when braking is insufficient by the driver.
