Limitations  - Distance Alert* - Comfort and driving pleasure - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

Distance Alert uses the same radar sensor used by Adaptive Cruise Control and the Collision Warning system. See page 160 for more information on the radar sensors limitations.

NOTE NOTE

Strong sunlight, reflections, extreme light contrasts, the use of sunglasses, or if the driver is not looking straight ahead may make the visual warning signal in the windshield difficult to see.

WARNING WARNING

  • Bad weather or winding roads may affect the radar sensors capacity to detect vehicles ahead.
  • The size of the vehicle ahead, such as a motorcycle, may also make it difficult to detect. This may result in the warning light illuminating at a shorter distance than the one that has been set, or that the light will not come on at all.
