*** Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is an electronic system to help the driver maintain control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices.
Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether DSC will be effective in preventing loss of control. Please see the Owner's
Manual for further details.
††† Do not rely completely on the BSM system and be sure to look over your shoulder before chang ing lanes. The BSM system can assist the driver in confirming the
safety of the surrounding but is not a complete substitute. The driver is responsible for assuring lane chang es and other maneuvers. Always pay attention to the direction
in which the vehicle is traveling and the vehicle's surrounding s. The BSM system does not operate when the vehicle speed is lower than about 20 mph (32 km/h).
