Blind spot information System*  
1Blind spot information System*  
Is designed to detect vehicles in specified alert zones adjacent to your vehicle,  
particularly in harder to see areas commonly known as “blind spots.” When the  
system detects vehicles approaching from behind in adjacent lanes, the appropriate  
indicator comes on for a few seconds, providing assistance when you change lanes.  
3WARNING  
Failure to visually confirm that it is safe to  
change lanes before doing so may result in  
a crash and serious injury or death.  
Do not rely only on the blind spot  
information system when changing lanes.  
Always look in your mirrors, to either side  
of your vehicle, and behind you for other  
vehicles before changing lanes.  
Important Safety Reminder  
Like all assistance systems, blind spot information  
system has limitations. Over reliance on the blind spot  
information system may result in a collision.  
The system is for your convenience only.  
Even if an object is within the alert zone, the  
following situations may occur.  
The blind spot information system alert indicator  
may not come on due to obstruction (splashes,  
etc.) and the  
message appears on the driver  
information interface.  
The blind spot information system alert indicator  
may come on even with the  
driver information interface.
