What Is Forward Collision Warning?

2019 honda civic blue sedan



Forward Collision Warning is a driver assist feature that sends out an alert to warn you of a possible collision ahead. This system comes can help make your San Marcos area commute safer, while adding an extra level of peace of mind to your driving experience. Come out to Escondido and test drive a new or pre-owned Honda model equipped with Forward Collision Warning to see how it works for yourself.

How Does FCW Work?

The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system scans the area in front of your car and can detect a possible collision with another vehicle. If the sensors located at the front of your car detect a potential obstacle, the system will alert you through multiple warnings in the form of:

  • Sounds
  • Vibrations
  • Quick brake pulsing
  • Visuals
  • Mixture of signals

These warnings could possibly save you, and your vehicle, from an accident on the roads in and around Vista.

Main Features

Hitting the rear of another car is one of the most common types of car accidents. A feature like the FCW system works to reduce these accidents. Some important main features of the Forward Collision Warning system to be aware of are:

  • The scanners can read up to 500 feet ahead, scanning at 20 Hz.
  • The system detects vehicles, bicycles, and motorcycles.
  • Works well in all lighting and weather conditions, however detrimental.
  • Allows for approximately 5 seconds of reaction time.
