Driving

Before Driving

Driving Preparation

Check the following items before you start driving.

Make sure there are no obstructions on the windows, door mirrors, exterior 
lights, or other parts of the vehicle.

u

Remove any frost, snow, or ice.

u

Remove any snow on the roof, as this can slip down and obstruct your field of 
vision while driving. If frozen solid, remove ice once it has softened.

u

When removing ice from around the wheels, be sure not to damage the wheel 
or wheel components.

Make sure the hood is securely closed.

u

If the hood opens while driving, your front view will be blocked.

Make sure the tires are in good condition.

u

Check air pressures, and check for damage and excessive wear.

2

Checking and Maintaining Tires

 P. 516

Make sure the tailgate is fully closed when it is not being used as an extended 
pickup bed.

Make sure the trunk is securely closed and locked.

Make sure there are no people or objects behind or around the vehicle.

u

There are blind spots from the inside.

Exterior Checks

1

Exterior Checks

NOTICE

When doors are frozen shut, use warm water around 
the door edges to melt any ice. Do not try to force 
them open, as this can damage the rubber trim 
around the doors. When done, wipe dry to avoid 
further freezing.

Do not pour warm water into the key cylinder.
You will be unable to insert the key if the water 
freezes in the hole.

Heat from the engine and exhaust can ignite 
flammable materials left under the hood, causing a 
fire. If you’ve parked your vehicle for an extended 
period, inspect and remove any debris that may have 
collected, such as dried grass and leaves that have 
fallen or have been carried in for use as a nest by a 
small animal. Also, check under the hood for leftover 
flammable materials after you or someone else has 
performed maintenance on your vehicle.

Before Driving

Driving Preparation

Driving

Store or secure all items on board properly.

u

Carrying too much cargo, or improperly storing it, can affect your vehicle’s 
handling, stability, stopping distance, and tires, and make it unsafe.

2

Maximum Load Limit

 P. 367

Do not pile items higher than the seat height.

u

They can block your view and may be thrown forward in the event of sudden 
braking.

Do not place anything in the front seat footwells. Make sure to secure the floor 
mat.

u

An object or unsecured floor mat can interfere with your brake and accelerator 
pedal operation while driving.

If you have any animals on board, do not let them move around in the vehicle.

u

They may interfere with driving and a crash could occur.

Securely close and lock all doors.

2

Locking/Unlocking the Doors from the Inside

Interior Checks

The headlight aim is set by the factory, and does not 
need to be adjusted. However, if you regularly carry 
heavy items in the cargo area or tow a trailer, have 
the aiming readjusted at a dealer or by a qualified 
technician.

Before Driving

u

Driving Preparation

Driving

Be sure items placed on the floor behind the front seats cannot roll under the 
seats.

u

They can interfere with the driver’s ability to operate the pedals, the operation 
of the seats, or the operation of the sensors under the seats.

Everyone in the vehicle must fasten their seat belt.

2

Fastening a Seat Belt

 P. 40

Make sure that the indicators in the instrument panel come on when you start the 
vehicle, and go off soon after.

u

Always have a dealer check the vehicle if a problem is indicated.
