Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Adaptive cruise control (ACC) can be used on the open road to maintain a constant selected speed between approx. 20 and 130 mph (30 and 210 km/h) without having to use the accelerator pedal.
If another vehicle that traveling slower than the selected speed is detected ahead in the same lane, adaptive cruise control automatically maintains a set distance. Adaptive cruise control will cause the vehicle to brake if the distance from the vehicle in front becomes too small and to accelerate if the distance increases.
Lack of attention
The increased comfort offered by ACC should not induce you to risk your safety. Despite ACC, responsibility for maintaining a safe distance, choosing a suitable speed, etc. remains with the driver. The system cannot replace the driver's attentiveness.
Unsafe traffic situation and unfavorable road conditions
If the prevailing situation does not allow you to drive safely at a sufficient distance and constant speed, use of the ACC can cause accidents.
Failure of adaptive cruise control to detect vehicles or objects
Pedestrians or objects on the road, oncoming vehicles in the same lane and cross traffic are not detected. Stationary or slow-moving vehicles are only detected to a limited extent by ACC.
Restricted range of the radar sensors and camera
The range of the radar sensors and camera can be impaired by rain, snow, ice or heavy spray. Vehicles up ahead may not be adequately detected, or may not be detected at all.
ACC limited or not available
Shocks or damage to the bumper, wheel housings or underbody, e.g. through parking dents, can move the sensors. This may impair performance of the adaptive cruise control.
Radio frequency radiation exposure
This equipment complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. This equipment should be installed and operated at a minimum distance of 8 in. (20 cm) between the radiator and your body.
