Blind Spot Monitoring
The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system is designed to assist the driver
by monitoring the blind spots to the rear of the vehicle on both sides.
• If your vehicle speed is 20 mph (32 km/h) or more, the BSM will warn
you of vehicles in the detection area by illuminating the BSM warning
lights located on the left and right door mirrors.
• If you operate a turn signal in the direction of an illuminated BSM
warning light, the system will also warn you with a beeping sound and
warning light flash.
• BSM sensors are located under the left and right rear bumper areas.
The BSM system may not operate properly if the rear bumper gets too
dirty, so keep the rear bumper area clean.
Please refer to your Owner’s Manual for complete details.
Turning BSM System Off
Turning the BSM system off will turn off both the light and sound indicators.
To manually turn the BSM system off, push the BSM OFF switch on the dash.
The BSM OFF indicator will illuminate in the instrument cluster when the BSM
system is off. The BSM system will automatically turn on the next time the
vehicle is started.
Your Vehicle
Detection Areas
NOTE: Do not rely completely on the BSM system and be sure to look over
your shoulder before changing lanes:
• The BSM system can assist the driver in confirming the safety of the surroundings, but is not a complete substitute.
• The driver is responsible for ensuring safe lane changes and other maneuvers.
• Always pay attention to the direction in which the vehicle is traveling and the
vehicle’s surroundings.
• The BSM system does not operate when the vehicle speed is lower than about
20 mph (32 km/h).

7/10/13 9:03 AM
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
The RCTA is designed to alert the driver of oncoming traffic when
backing out of a parking spot. RCTA is active when your vehicle is in
reverse and your vehicle speed is 0 to 8 mph (13 km/h).
When BSM sensors detect an object moving 3 to 18 mph (5 to 30 km/h)
(vehicle/motorcycle), RCTA will notify the driver with indicators and sound:
• Rear View Monitor and outside mirror flashing indications.
• Beep sound (same as BSM).
Please refer to your Owner’s Manual for complete details.

Rear View Monitor
WARNING: RCTA is only a supplementary system to help aid when backing up,
however RCTA has limitations. The system does not detect all vehicles. Do not
rely solely on the RCTA. Relying solely on the RCTA may cause an unexpected
accident resulting in serious injury. Always back up slowly.

Rear View Parking Camera and is viewable via the 5.8” LCD screen.
NOTE: When using the Rear View Parking Camera, please check your
surroundings as objects may be closer than they appear.
PARKING Sensor System (if equipped)

of the approximate distance from the vehicle to the obstruction
using a beeping sound.
• Push the parking sensor switch on the dash to

Bluetooth® enabled devices
provide an opportunity to play
music through the audio system
with no wires attached, however,
there are some limitations:
Some phone models do not
support all features. Go to
or contact (800) 430-0153 for
further assistance or to report a
phone /MP3 device concern.
HD radio has a special receiver
which allows it to receive digital
broadcasts (where available)
in addition to the analog
broadcasts it already receives.
Digital broadcasts have better
sound quality than analog
broadcasts as digital broadcasts
provide free, crystal clear audio.

sound quality and volume when
a change from digital to analog
signals occurs. If the sound
quality and volume becomes
noticeably diminished or cuts
