Buick Regal: Driver Assistance Systems

This vehicle may have features that work together to help avoid crashes or reduce crash damage while driving, backing, and parking. Read this entire section before using these systems.

Warning: Do not rely on the Driver Assistance Systems. These systems do not replace the need for paying attention and driving safely. You may not hear or see alerts or warnings provided by these systems. Failure to use proper care when driving may result in injury, death, or vehicle damage.

Under many conditions, these systems will not:

  • Detect children, pedestrians, bicyclists, or animals.
  • Detect vehicles or objects outside the area monitored by the system.
  • Work at all driving speeds.
  • Warn you or provide you with enough time to avoid a crash.
  • Work under poor visibility or bad weather conditions.
  • Work if the detection sensor is not cleaned or is covered by ice, snow, mud, or dirt.
  • Work if the detection sensor is covered up, such as with a sticker, magnet, or metal plate.
  • Work if the area surrounding the detection sensor is damaged or not properly repaired.

Complete attention is always required while driving, and you should be ready to take action and apply the brakes and/or steer the vehicle to avoid crashes.

Audible Alert

Some driver assistance features alert the driver of obstacles by beeping. To change the volume of the warning chime, see "Comfort and Convenience" under Vehicle Personalization.
