Question The Weiner

I have a 2018 Niro hybred touring & while I have less than 3 k on it I love it. I do have a question that if I do not get an answer, I will go to my dealer before our trip. Question is when you have cruise selected and late detection (fwd collision)
it will show orange on the dash, but no audio. Is that normal. I would have thought their would be an audio as well

My wife went to a Niro from the Kia SUV, and the backup camera alarm seems to have been removed as well. Not sure why they did it, but I'm sure it could be fixed with a software update.

My Sedona has an audible alarm when coming up on slowed/stopped traffic. I haven't checked, but there may be a setting in the dash settings to turn it on/off. I know there are a lot of settings in there.

Not sure what the issues are here. The active cruise control just maintains the distance to the car ahead. The Autonomous Emergency Braking provides warning messages, and audible alarm but you have to be close to a collision before it activates. I use the cruise control regularly and find it very competent at keeping the appropriate distance to the car in front. The AEB has never been activated - I have never been that close to a collision, and it is difficult to test without shredding your nerves (especially if set "late") as you have to be driving at speed towards an obstacle and rely on the function working

When reverse is selected, the car emits an audible warning to pedestrians. The park assist also provides the expected audible bleeps inside the cabin to warn of proximity to obstacles, with the gaps between bleeps reducing as the distance reduces. The tone becomes continuous when approx 1 ft from the obstacle.

If any of the audible tones are not working, I suggest you take the car to your dealer to get it fixed under warranty.
