Does anyone's taos alert them (audible) when they are backing up and getting close to something. My comfortline doesn't alert me when backing up, only when there is cross traffic. Wasn't sure if that's normal.

Yes, mine does, and quite loudly. Might be worth checking the settings for the assist systems.

I have the SEL and I wish it had sensors in the front! Coming from a Prius it is a bit hard to maneuver when parking.
I find it far easier to park than the Jetta, when I drove a 19. I can't explain why but they are just unwieldy and feel weirdly long and it felt like I never knew where the sides and back of the car was. The Taos is much, much better in that regard.

I have this in my S with IQ drive. I have no audile alerts or any alerts while reversing. proximity or cross path. I get nothing.

I’ve had it brake automatically when reversing. It’s a grating feeling rather than the normal smooth application of pressure. The approaching truck was surprisingly far away at the time. It was a BIG truck!

O yes I know the feeling of us that happen in my jeep. I was backing out of a very steep driveway and it kept auto breaking. It’s a little shocking when it first happens.
