Kia Optima: Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA) system / Brake operation

Kia Optima DL3 2019-2020 Owner's Manual / Driving your vehicle / Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA) system / Brake operation

CAUTION

The driver should always pay great caution to vehicle operation, even though there is no warning message or warning alarm. The warning of the FCA system may not sound while other system warning sounds.

WARNING

The FCA cannot avoid all collisions. The braking control cannot completely stop the vehicle. The driver is responsible to safely drive and control the vehicle.

WARNING

The FCA system logic assesses the risk of a collision by monitoring several variables, such as the distance from the vehicle ahead, the speed of the vehicle ahead, and the driver's vehicle speed. Certain conditions, such as inclement weather and road conditions, may affect the operation of the FCA system.

WARNING

Never deliberately drive dangerously to activate the system.
