Nissan Maxima Owners Manual / Starting and driving / Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) (if so equipped)

WARNING

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

  • The RCTA system is not a replacement for proper driving procedures and is not designed to prevent contact with vehicles or objects. When backing out of a parking space, always use the side and rear mirrors and turn and look in the direction your vehicle will move. Never rely solely on the RCTA system.

The RCTA system will assist you when backing out from a parking space. When the vehicle is in reverse, the system is designed to detect other vehicles approaching from the right or left of the vehicle. If the system detects cross traffic, it will alert you.
