Distance Warning

Distance Warning* - symbols and messages

Updated 7/23/2018

The Distance Warning function (Distance Alert) warns the driver if the time interval to the vehicle ahead becomes too short.

The function has certain symbols and messages that can be shown in the combined instrument panel if the function is reduced due to its limitations.

SymbolSymbols are schematic - may vary by market and car model.
