My Hyundai peeps telling me to take a coffee break...why?

My car keeps telling me to take a coffee break, but I don’t understand why. I’m wide awake and driving perfectly fine.


It’s possible that your Hyundai is equipped with a feature called “Driver Attention Warning” or a similar system. This feature monitors your driving behavior and can detect signs of fatigue or drowsiness. When it detects that you may be getting tired, it prompts you to take a break, such as suggesting a coffee break, to help you stay alert and focused on the road. This proactive approach to driver safety is designed to reduce the risk of accidents caused by drowsy driving. Taking a short break, such as grabbing a cup of coffee, can help refresh you and improve your alertness while driving. It’s important to heed these warnings and take breaks as needed to ensure your safety and the safety of others on the road.


That, in my opinion, depends on how long it takes and how frequently other driver assistance features—like lane keeping assistance—activate. Perhaps more often than you think, you’re straying in your own lane?

@Puck I concur. It will happen if you change lanes without blinking, drifting, etc. It is deactivated via the cluster settings.

Your Hyundai is like a super attentive buddy looking out for you! The “consider taking a coffee break” message is likely from a driver drowsiness detection system. It monitors things like how often you drift out of your lane or make jerky corrections on the steering wheel. Basically, if the car thinks you’re getting tired, it gives you a friendly nudge to pull over and grab a coffee (or just take a quick break to stretch and re-energize).
