I will check. I remember seeing it when I set up my EVIC. I know for a fact that in my Summit, if the blind spot arrow is lit and I activate the turn signal for that side, I get an audible.

Again as I and others have stated before, my alarm has sounded several times coming up on moving vehicles including recently a motorcycle that moved into my lane. The warning distance seems to be directly related to MPH and the closing speed. If you are a very conservative driver, the warning distance may seem too short to you, but I think its perfect for me. Two car lengths is a lot at 40 mph. I would turn the warning off instead of dealing with false alarms. I have a spouse to constantly reminding me of following too close, don't also need the JGC telling me I have my ACC distance set at minimum.

I have not had enough confidence to try it on a stationary object.

In my opinion, distracted drivers should get off the road.
Thanks for confirming, Coldcase. I'll have them run a diagnostic on the vehicle's warning systems then. It definitely does not go off on mine when I accelerate toward the rear of a car. Good to know that yours works in theses scenarios. When was yours manufactured?

Thanks B! Let me know if you're able hear the brake alarm when you rapidly approach a MOVING vehicle too. Would love to have this data when I take it in!

Re: Forward Collision Warning System Issues

How did you may out at the dealer? For grins I set the FCW to far and it now detects those trees standing on the side of the road that are about to jump out in front of me and warns me to brake.... cool..

In the old days, at any rate, we were taught that there should be one car length separation for every 10 mph. It's not just a question of braking distance, but also of having enough "slack" so the driver can focus primarily on the road ahead and traffic behind, not mainly on the car immediately in front.
