Forward Collision Alert (FCA) System

For vehicles with this feature, read the following section before using it.

The Forward Collision Alert (FCA) system may help to avoid or reduce the harm caused by front-end crashes. FCA provides a flashing visual alert and beeps when approaching a vehicle directly ahead too quickly. FCA also provides a visual alert if following another vehicle much too closely. The FCA symbol is on top of the instrument panel to the right of the steering wheel.The forward-looking FCA camera sensor is on the windshield ahead of the rearview mirror. FCA detects vehicles within a distance of approximately 60m (197 ft) and operates at speeds above 40 km/h (25 mph).

WARNING

FCA is a warning system and does not apply the brakes. When approaching a slower-moving or stopped vehicle ahead too rapidly, or when following a vehicle too closely, FCA may not provide enough time to avoid a crash. FCA does not warn of any objects that do not look like a vehicle to the FCA camera sensor, such as pedestrians, animals, signs, guardrails, bridges, construction barrels, or other objects. Be ready to take action and apply the brakes. For more information, see Defensive Driving on page 9‑3.

WARNING

There are conditions where FCA may not detect a vehicle ahead. These include winding roads or weather conditions such as fog, rain, or snow that can limit visibility. You could crash into a vehicle ahead. Do not rely on FCA on winding roads or in poor visibility conditions.
