havent been brave enough to test my city safety yetvolver said:The city safety kicked in yesterday at my V40. I was second at the lights and when the green light appeared the first car suddenly performed a U-turn. I turned right to avoid the colision and at the same time the city safety kicked in. It didn't stop the car completely and to be true there was no real reason to kick in. However it didn't feel dangerous at all considering that I had another car behind me.
Mine has activated twice on me, a message displays on the dash which says something like "city safety activated" and the orange warning light displays. You have to cancel the message by the ok button on the indicator stalk.Question (guess I am lazy enough to look this up at the manual):
When the city safety system kicks in and stops the car, is there any message display afterwards ?
If no, then this will ease my frustration as if the system works alright on my car!
Thank you for answering this.
ok will try it with a shiny surface car is going in Monday for a check as my park assit pilot get confused when im driving it says space to small but im doing 150kph .I would need a big space to park there. lol but it only gets confused when in sport mode with dst switched off.Somewhere i read that the object has to be shiny or reflective - this is not the case for tarp or polystyrene. Mine has been activated twice by shiny leaves from a bush!!!
It was explained to me (by my dealer, so take it as you will) that City Safety has to be fairly sure that the object in front is a vehicle. I understand reflectivity plays a part in the decision logic, which would explain why the system doesn't respond to tarps, cardboard boxes, or polystyrene.Somewhere i read that the object has to be shiny or reflective - this is not the case for tarp or polystyrene.
