Introduction

This vehicle is equipped with an event
data recorder (EDR). The main pur-
pose of an EDR is to record, in certain
crash or near crash-like situations,
such as an air bag deployment or hit-
ting a road obstacle, data that will
assist in understanding how a vehi-
cle's systems performed. The EDR is
designed to record data related to
vehicle dynamics and safety systems
for a short period of time, typically 30
seconds or less. The EDR in this vehi-
cle is designed to record such data
as:
* How various systems in your vehicle
were operating:
* Whether or not the driver and pas-
senger safety belts were
buckled/fastened;
* How far (if at all) the driver was
depressing the accelerator and/or
brake pedal; and,
* How fast the vehicle was traveling.
These data can help provide a better
understanding of the circumstances
in which crashes and injuries occur.
NOTE: EDR data are recorded by your
vehicle only if a nontrivial crash situa-
tion occurs; no data are recorded by
the EDR under normal driving condi-
tions and no personal data (e.g.,
name, gender, age, and crash loca-
tion) are recorded. However, other
parties, such as law enforcement,
could combine the EDR data with the
type of personally identifying data
routinely acquired during a crash
investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, spe-
cial equipment is required, and
access to the vehicle or the EDR is
needed.
In addition to the vehicle manufactur-
er, other parties, such as law enforce-
ment, that have the special equip-
ment, can read the information if they
have access to the vehicle or the EDR.
