So far I have not seen the collision warning. I have the Collision Alert set to Near.
My cousin was here a few weeks back with her new Honda Pilot and she said when meeting a car in a sharp curve she would get a brake message.
Are you talking about the paddles on the back side of the steering wheel?
hmm well I cant wait to get to the car after work now.. I was looking at pictures and I see what button you are taking about, in the middle of the cluster on the left side.. maybe I'm crazy but I don't think mine has that.
Sounds like this discussion is talking about two different features. The button you're referring to, on the left side of the steering wheel on our Premier controls the lane change alert. The button turns it on or off. When it's on you will feel steering resistance if you try to wander out of your lane, (on well marked, snow free roads), an icon will appear in the DIC, and your seat will vibrate. MHO, it's a PITA. I leave it off.
The front collision alert sensitivity can be adjusted through the personal preferences menu. I don't do much with the menus, my wife takes care of that. The flashing red light on the windshield was distracting in traffic, so I had her turn it off. I haven't rear ended anyone in the last sixty years. I hope I'm not around when all vehicles drive themselves, I like driving!
There's a button on the steering for both Lane Change and Collision Alert.
Selecting the Alert Timing
The Collision Alert control is on the
steering wheel. Press[to set the
FCA timing to Far, Medium, or Near,
or on some vehicles, Off. The first
button press shows the current
setting on the DIC. Additional button
presses will change this setting.
Sure enough, there it was, the button to control forward collision selections. I very seldom drive the Premier but I know the salesman at the dealer asked what selection we wanted and I didn't pay attention to what he did. My wife may have turned it off in the Premier, fortunately I drive the LT diesel almost exclusively and don't have to deal with these dummy proof features. I do, however, like many of the features of the Premier and if I was going to do it over I'd probably step up to a Premier diesel. I don't like the way GM packages the diesel LT. Many of the features of the $1995 convenience package offered on the gas LT are included with the diesel LT but I was disappointed that the power/remote lift gate was not. You have to buy an additional $2200+ (?) package to get it on the diesel. That package also includes entertainment upgrades, moon roof and navigation, etc. which I have no use for. Anyway, thanks for the heads up about the subject feature.

Got me a receiver hitch for my 2012 Equinox and need to know what size bolts to get for the nuts that are welded to the body.
I bought the hitch on-line and the seller did not (or forgot) to include the mounting hardware. The seller then shipped out some bolts and washers, and when...
I have had the vehicle for 4 years and ran up tons of miles on it and not going to the dealer this time, they want BIG bucks!
Gonna do everything myself or take all of my own preferred fluids to a local mechanic, still will be cheaper...
I searched quality products for an hour to change it up...
I have GMC terrain 2011,I just recharged my AC using red tek refrigerant R12a. The car capacity was 654 g and I used 2 bottles 454 g, so basically overcharged for 254 g. Is this can damage my AC compressor or any other parts in the AC system?
About to tackle my first cylinder head removal that is equipped with California emmisions.
At first glance I do not see how the pipes are attached to the head. The obvious bolts have been removed, but the pipes are still firmly attached to the head. Until they are removed, the manifold cannot...
