(6) Check that the set vehicle speed is displayed on the multi-information display in the combination meter assembly.

(b) Check the deceleration function.

(1) When the preceding vehicle decelerates, check that the vehicle automatically decelerates while maintaining the set vehicle-to-vehicle distance.

(2) When the vehicle stops, check that "Waiting" is displayed on the multi-information display in the combination meter assembly.

HINT:

When "Waiting" is displayed on the multi-information display in the combination meter assembly, even if the brake pedal is depressed, tracking control is not canceled.
