Nissan Maxima Owners Manual / Starting and driving / Blind Spot Warning (BSW) (if so equipped)

WARNING

Failure to follow the warnings and instructions for proper use of the BSW system could result in serious injury or death.

  • The BSW system is not a replacement for proper driving procedures and is not designed to prevent contact with vehicles or objects. When changing lanes, always use the side and rear mirrors and turn and look in the direction your vehicle will move to ensure it is safe to change lanes. Never rely solely on the BSW system.

The BSW system helps alert the driver of other vehicles in adjacent lanes when changing lanes.
