Kia Stinger: Smart cruise control with stop & go system / Limitations of the system

Kia Stinger CK 2018-2020 Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Smart cruise control with stop & go system / Limitations of the system

The smart cruise control system may have limits to its ability to detect distance to the vehicle ahead due to road and traffic conditions.

On curves

On inclines

Lane changing

Vehicle recognition

Some vehicles ahead in your lane cannot be recognized by the sensor as follows:

- Narrow vehicles such as motorcycles or bicycles
- Vehicles offset to one side
- Slow-moving vehicles or suddendecelerating vehicles
- Stopped vehicles
- Vehicles with small rear profiles such as trailers with no loads

A vehicle ahead cannot be recognized correctly by the sensor if any of following occurs:
- When the vehicle is pointing upwards due to overloading in the trunk or luggage area.
- While making turns by steering
- When driving to one side of the lane
- When driving on narrow lanes or on curves

Adjust your vehicle speed by depressing the brake pedal according to the road condition ahead and driving condition.

• When vehicles are at a standstill and the vehicle in front of you changes to the next lane, be careful when your vehicle starts to move because it may not immediately recognize the stopped vehicle in front of you. In this case, you must maintain a safe braking distance, and if necessary, depress the brake pedal to reduce your driving speed in order to maintain a safe distance.

• Always look out for pedestrians when your vehicle is maintaining a distance with the vehicle ahead.

• Always be cautious when approaching vehicles that are taller with higher clearance, or vehicles carrying loads that stick out of the back of the vehicle.

WARNING - Safe Use of smart cruise control system

The smart cruise control system can provide you with an additional level of safety and fatigue reduction. However you must maintain careful observation of the roadway in front and around you and maintain control of your vehicle and spacing around other vehicles as you normally would. For example, this will require you to apply the brakes as needed when coming upon a slower moving vehicle, or when a vehicle from another lane drives quickly in front of you.

WARNING - Emergency Stops

The smart cruise control system may not be able to completely stop the vehicle or avoid a collision in every situation. If an emergency stop is necessary, you must apply the brakes.

WARNING - Inclines & Towing

Do not use smart cruise control system on steep inclines or when towing another vehicle or trailer since such extreme loading can interfere with your vehicle's ability to maintain the selected speed.

- After an engine start, please stop for several seconds. If system initialization is not completed, the smart cruise control system will not operate.
- After an engine start, if the sensor cover is obscured with foreign substances, there is a possibility that the smart cruise control system may not work.
- The following conditions may cause a malfunction: over-loading the liftgate, suspension modification, tire replacement with unauthorized tires or tires with different tread wear and pressure levels.
- Keep a safe distance according to road conditions and vehicle speed. If the vehicle to vehicle distance is too close during a high-speed driving, a serious collision may result.
- The smart cruise control system cannot recognize a stopped vehicle, pedestrians or an oncoming vehicle. Always look ahead cautiously to prevent unexpected and sudden situations from occurring.
- When other vehicles are changing lanes in front of you frequently, there may be a delay in the system's reaction. Always look ahead cautiously to prevent unexpected and sudden situations from occurring.
- The smart cruise control system is a supplemental system only and is not a substitute for safe driving practices but a convenience function only. It is the responsibility of the driver to always check the speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead.
- Always be aware of the selected speed and vehicle to vehicle distance.
- Always maintain sufficient braking distance and decelerate your vehicle by applying the brakes if necessary.
