I have only driven 398 miles and I have been mostly satisfied with safety features, but I was surprised today when my driver mirror did not pick up or alert me as I tried to merge onto highway, left blinker on and came dangerously close to a car in that lane. While it is always my responsibility as the driver to check before changing lanes, this failure is concerning. Nissan customer care and dealer could not provide any answers. My settings did have all driver assist options “on”.
There is I-bsi feature in Arita. Intelligent-blind spot inteeventiion. It can be turned off by pressing the button on the right side of steering wheel. Just thinking maybe you disabled it? Might be good to check.
INTELLIGENT BLIND SPOT INTERVENTION (I-BSI)
The I-BSI system helps alert the driver
of other vehicles in adjacent lanes when changing lanes, and helps assist the driver to return the vehicle to the center of the traveling lane.
An indicator light located on the outside mirrors will illuminate if the radar sensors detect a vehicle in the detection zone.
When the BSI system is turned on the I-BSI ON indicator light on the instrument panel illuminates.
To turn on the I-BSI system, push the switch on the steering wheel.
The I-BSI system operates above
approximately 37 mph (60 km/h). If the
system detects a vehicle in the detection
zone and your vehicle is approaching the
lane marker, the BSI system provides an audible warning (three times), flashes the side indicator light and slightly applies the brakes for a short period of time on one side to help return the vehicle back to the traveling lane.
The I-BSI system can be turned on or off through the “Driver Assistance” menu in the vehicle information display.
