Volkswagen ID.3: Side Assist system limitations

Volkswagen ID.3 (E11, E12) 2020-2024 Owner's Manual / Side Assist system limitations

Limits of the sensor system

Side Assist detects driving situations via the radar sensors in the rear area.

Note the limits of the radar sensors (→ Sensor system) and always pay attention!

Functional limitations

In addition to the situations specified in the sensor system limitations, Side Assist may not correctly interpret the traffic situation in the following situations, among others:

  • When driving in the center of two lanes.

  • When lanes have different widths.

  • When certain types of equipment are on the side of the road, such as high or offset guard rails.

Restricted visibility

Sunlight may reduce the visibility of the visual display in the outside mirror.


The radar sensors calibrate once, on the first kilometer of a journey after the Volkswagen ID.3 vehicle is delivered, and then again if the sensor technology has been repaired. The range of the sensors may be limited during the calibration phase.
