Changing a Flat Tire

If a tire goes flat while driving, grasp the steering wheel firmly, and brake gradually 
to reduce speed. Then, stop in a safe place. Replace the flat tire with a compact 
spare tire. Go to a dealer as soon as possible to have the full-size tire repaired or 
replaced.

1. Park the vehicle on firm, level, and non-slippery surface, and apply the parking 

brake.

2. Change the gear position to 

(

P.

3. Turn on the hazard warning lights and set the power mode to VEHICLE OFF 

(LOCK).

Vehicles with optional spare tire kit

Changing a Flat Tire

Periodically check the tire pressure of the compact 
spare. It should be set to the specified pressure. 
Specified Pressure: 60 psi (420 kPa, 4.2 kgf/cm

2

)

When driving with the compact spare tire, keep the 
vehicle speed under 50 mph (80 km/h). Replace with 
a full-size tire as soon as possible.

The compact spare tire and wheel in your vehicle are 
specifically for this model. Do not use them with 
another vehicle. Do not use another type of compact 
spare tire or wheel with your vehicle.

Do not mount tire chains on a compact spare tire.
If a chain-mounted front tire goes flat, remove one of 
the full-size rear tires and replace it with the compact 
spare tire. Remove the flat front tire and replace it 
with the full-size tire that was removed from the rear. 
Mount the tire chains on the front tire.

NOTICE

Do not use an unapproved puncture-repairing agent 
on a flat tire, as it can damage the tire pressure 
sensor.

How to Set Up the Jack

Do not use the jack with people or luggage in the 
vehicle.

Use the jack provided in your vehicle.
Other jacks may not support the weight (“load”) or 
may not fit the jacking point.

The following instructions must be followed to use 
the jack safely:

Do not use while the power system is on.

Use only where the ground is firm and level.

Use only at the jacking points.

Do not get in the vehicle while using the jack.

Do not put anything on top of or underneath the 
jack.

WARNING

The vehicle can easily roll off the jack, 
seriously injuring anyone underneath.

Follow the directions for changing a tire 
exactly, and never get under the vehicle 
when it is supported only by the jack.

Emergency Power System Off

The POWER button may be used to turn the power system off due to an emergency 
situation even while driving. If you must turn the power system off, do either of the 
following operations:
• Press and hold the POWER button for about two seconds.
• Firmly press the POWER button twice.

The steering wheel will not lock. However, because turning off the engine disables 
the power assist the engine provides to the steering and braking systems, it will 
require significantly more physical effort and time to steer and slow the vehicle. Use 
both feet on the brake pedal to slow down the vehicle and stop immediately in a 
safe place.

The gear position automatically changes to

stop. Then, the power mode changes to VEHICLE OFF.

Jump Starting

Turn off the power to electric devices, such as audio and lights. Turn off the power 
system, then open the hood.

1. Open the fuse box cover on your vehicle’s 

12-volt battery positive + terminal.

2. Connect the first jumper cable to your 

vehicle’s 12-volt battery + terminal.

3. Connect the other end of the first jumper 

cable to the booster battery + terminal.

u

If you use a booster battery, only use a 
12-volt booster battery.

u

When using an automotive battery 
charger, select a charging voltage lower 
than 15-volts. Check the charger manual 
for the proper setting.

4. Connect the second jumper cable to the 

booster battery - terminal.

Jump Starting Procedure

1

Jump Starting

Securely attach the jumper cable clips so that they do 
not come off when the engine vibrates. Also be 
careful not to tangle the jumper cables or allow the 
cable ends to touch each other while attaching or 
detaching the jumper cables.

Battery performance degrades in cold conditions and 
may prevent the engine from starting.

3

WARNING

A 12-volt battery can explode if you do not 
follow the correct procedure, seriously 
injuring anyone nearby.

Keep all sparks, open flames, and smoking 
materials away from the 12-volt battery.

Overheating

How to Handle Overheating

Overheating symptoms are as follows:
• The high temperature indicator comes on or the engine suddenly loses power.
• Steam or spray comes out of the engine compartment.

First thing to do

1. Immediately park the vehicle in a safe place.

u

Change the gear position to 

(

P and set the parking brake.

2. Turn off all accessories and turn on the hazard warning lights.

u

No steam or spray present: Keep the power system on and open the hood.

u

Steam or spray is present: Turn off the power system and wait until it 
subsides. Then open the hood.

1

How to Handle Overheating

NOTICE

Continuing to drive with the high temperature 
indicator on may damage the engine.

WARNING

Steam and spray from an overheated 
engine can seriously scald you.

Do not open the hood if steam is coming 
out.

Next thing to do

1. Check that the cooling fan is operating and 

turn the power system off once the high 
temperature indicator goes off.

u

If the cooling fan is not operating, 
immediately turn the power system off.

2. Once the engine has cooled down, inspect 

the coolant level and check the cooling 
system components for leaks.

u

If the coolant level in the reserve tank is 
low, add coolant until it reaches the 
MAX mark.

u

If there is no coolant in the reserve tank, 
check that the radiator is cool. Cover the 
radiator cap with a heavy cloth and open 
the cap. If necessary, add coolant up to 
the base of the filler neck, and put the 
cap back on.

Last thing to do

Once the engine has cooled sufficiently, turn the power system on and check the 
high temperature indicator. If the high temperature indicator is off, resume driving. 
If it stays on, contact a dealer for repairs.

1

How to Handle Overheating

If the coolant is leaking, contact a dealer for repairs.

Use water as an emergency/temporary measure only. 
Have a dealer flush the system with proper antifreeze 
as soon as possible.

3

WARNING

Removing the radiator cap while the 
engine is hot can cause the coolant to spray 
out, seriously scalding you.

Always let the engine and radiator cool 
down before removing the radiator cap.
