Brake assist systemBrake assist system  - Starting and driving - Mitsubishi ASX Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi ASX

The brake assist system is a device assisting drivers who cannot depress the brake pedal firmly when it is necessary to do so (such as in emergency stop situations) and provides greater braking force.

If the brake pedal is depressed suddenly, the brakes will be applied with more force than usual.

• The brake assist system is not a device designed to exercise braking force CAUTION

• The brake assist system is not a device designed to exercise braking force greater than its capacity. Make sure to always keep a sufficient distance between vehicles in front of you without relying too much on the brake assist system.

• Once the brake assist system is operational, it maintains great braking force NOTE

• Once the brake assist system is operational, it maintains great braking force even if the brake pedal is lightly released.

To stop its operation, completely remove your foot from the brake pedal.

• The brake assist system may become operational when the brake pedal is fully depressed even if it has not been depressed suddenly.

• When the brake assist system is in use, you may feel as if the depressed brake pedal is soft, the pedal moves in small motions in conjunction with the sound of the ABS operation, or the vehicle body and the steering wheel vibrate. This occurs when the brake assist system is operating normally and does not indicate faulty operation. Continue to firmly depress the brake pedal.

• You may hear an operation noise when the brake pedal is depressed suddenly while stationary.

This does not indicate a malfunction and the brake assist system is operating normally.
