Subaru Forester: Driver Monitoring System (if equipped) / Inattentive/drowsy driving warning

While driving, the Driver Monitoring System monitors possible cases of driver inattention or drowsiness and warns the driver.

When the inattentive/drowsy driving warning activates, the buzzer sounds and an interrupt display appears.


  • The inattentive/drowsy driving warning operates regardless of the status of the user recognition function.
  • The inattentive driving warning does not activate when the turn signal is operating or when the select lever is in the “R” position.
  • When the pre-crash brake OFF indicator is illuminated on the combination meter display, the inattentive driving warning activates at the same timing as usual even when a vehicle ahead or obstacle is detected. For details about the EyeSight system, refer to the Owner’s Manual supplement for the EyeSight system.
