The park distance control, with 4-valve stem and acoustic warning function, provides additional safety when parking. This park distance control is easy to install and effectively helps avoid unsightly damage to the bumpers when reversing. A short sound (emitted when reverse gear is engaged) indicates that the system is active. The closer the vehicle comes to the obstacle, the more frequently the signal is emitted. Sold only through your local dealership. Professional installation may be required at an additional charge. Prices may vary.
