Blind Spot Information System*  
1Blind Spot Information System*  
When the system detects vehicles approaching from behind in adjacent lanes, the  
appropriate indicator comes on, providing assistance when you change lanes.  
Important Safety Reminder  
Like all assistance systems, the Blind Spot Information  
System has limitations. Always look in your mirrors,  
to either side of your vehicle, and behind you for  
other vehicles before changing lanes. Overreliance on  
the Blind Spot Information System may result in a  
collision.  
How the System works  
The system activates when your vehicle is moving forward at about 20 mph (32 km/h)  
or above.  
: Alert Zone 1  
: Alert Zone 2  
Radar Sensors : underneath  
the rear bumper corners  
Have your vehicle checked by a dealer in the  
following situations:  
The rear bumper or area around the radar sensors  
is strongly impacted.  
The indicator does not come on even if a vehicle in  
the alert zone should have been detected.  
The rear bumper or any system components need  
to be repaired.  
A
If the rear bumper or any system components are  
repaired, the system will revert to alert zone 1 only  
until it is able to adapt and expand to alert zone 1  
and 2.  
B
C
Alert zone range  
A: Approx. 1.6 ~ 10 feet (0.5 ~ 3 meters) from vehicle side.  
B: Approx. 10 feet (3 meters) from rear bumper.  
C: Approx. 10 ~ 82 feet (3 ~ 25 meters) behind from rear bumper. (The faster the  
approaching vehicle, the further away it will be detected.)  
For proper Blind Spot Information System operation:  
Always keep the rear bumper and area around the  
radar sensors clean.  
Do not cover the rear bumper corner area with  
labels or stickers of any kind.  
The initially set alert zone is alert zone 1. Over time, after the vehicle has been driven  
on straight roads with traffic and roadside objects, the system will adapt and expand  
the alert zone (alert zone 1 and 2).

no more than about 12 mph (20 km/h).  
The Vehicle Stability AssistTM (VSA®) system, brake  
system (Amber), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with  
Low Speed Follow, low tire pressure/TPMS* and  
safety support indicators may come on in amber  
along with a message in the gauge when you set the

Drive a short distance at more than 12 mph (20 km/h).  
Each indicator should go off. If any do not, have your  
vehicle checked by a dealer.  
Blinks and a beeper sounds when:  
You use the turn signal lever to signal a turn in  
the direction of the detected vehicle while the  
Blind Spot Information System alert indicator  
is on.  
u The beeper sounds three times.  
Turn the system off when towing a trailer.  
The system may not work properly for the following  
reasons:  
The added mass tilts the vehicle and changes the  
radar coverage.  
The trailer itself can be detected by the radar  
sensors, causing the Blind Spot Information System  
alert indicators to come on.
