Started to drive away and suddenly a loud and very attention grabbing alarm noise started. Never heard it before.
Turns out a back door wasn't completely closed. Easy to fix. The dash display did identify it, but when driving it was very startling.
I'd recommend doing that on purpose to hear what it sounds like. So when it happens, you will know what that sound means.

I jumped a mile the first time the reverse collision avoidance system kicked in at a time when I can't figure out why it would ... parking lot that backs into a street - but it jammed the brakes and wouldn't let me back out of the parking spot even with more than a car length before the street. We'll see what it does when I go back there at lunch today. May have to find a different side to park on if it's going to happen every time there.

You can turn the reverse sensing stuff off ... but I didn't spot something to give alert only vs. pin the brakes hard while sounding the klaxons. I thought they intent of it was to avoid things close by when reversing, but the sensors seem to detect problems much further back than I would think reasonable.

I experienced this the other day. Tiny parking lot that backs onto a four lane street with center turn lane. I have irrelevant cross traffic coming from my left, and traffic about two blocks away coming from the right in the lane I will be getting into

As I get about halfway out of the parking lot, it alerted on the traffic across the street (that I would never hit, I'm already 45 degrees turned into the road) and jammed the brakes harder than I ever have, like full crunch ABS engaging emergency stop mode. The bad thing here is I have traffic closing in on my right/behind me that I had plenty of time for had the truck not decided to immediately come to a complete stop. Thankfully the traffic going the other way cleared and I was able to complete entry to the street.

If I have to go to places like that regularly, I will have to disable the braking. I don't want to, as it would be super useful in my parking garage at work where people like to fly through. As it stood, when I went back to that shop the next day I had no one behind me so I backed into the parking space so I could pull straight out when I left.

I've had the auto-braking activate on my SC twice in the last week or so. Both times in a local Walmart parking lot.

The first time - I had just backed out of a parking spot and was starting to pull forward when the SC hit the brakes... because a car on the other side of a median island and no threat was moving across the front of the SC. That was an annoying surprise.

The second time - was a few days ago. I was in the SC in my parking spot after completing my shopping and was getting ready to go. Another old gent was patiently waiting with his left turn signal on to take my spot once vacant. It took me a little bit to get organized but once I did, I started to back out with the old gent still waiting. That's when the guy in the BMW behind the patient gent got tired of waiting and sped around the old guy just as I started moving. The SC slammed on the brakes. That was a good thing.

So, I'll say it's a good/bad situation in my case. Annoyed me once. Saved me damage and hassle once.

BTW - the system auto-resets to "On" once the ignition is turned off and if you want it disabled, it must be disabled each time the SC is started.

Can you leave the alerts active and permanently disable the braking?
If you can, I haven't found a setting for it. I'd LOVE to leave it active in alerts only without the auto-braking. I think Hyundai is going to get sued the first time it actually CAUSES an accident by preventing the driver from doing something safe and unexpectedly disrupting other traffic. I've had it come on in parking lots and be actually useful ... but it would be stellar if there was a button to turn it on/off like Auto Hold (which should just really always be on, IMO, I love it) and the parking cameras.
