Driving

Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4

TM

AWD System

*

The Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4

TM

) AWD System is a full time 

all wheel drive system that automatically controls and transfers varying amount of 
engine torque to all wheels independently according to the driving conditions.

You still need to exercise the same care when accelerating, steering, and braking 
that you would in a two wheel drive vehicle.

Avoid continuously driving on slippery surfaces where a wheel is likely to spin out, 
and do not drive if the All-wheel drive (

AWD

) Indicator starts blinking. Driving 

continuously under such conditions can damage the system’s torque distribution 
unit.

If the All-wheel drive (

AWD

) Indicator blinks while driving, it indicates the 

differential temperature is too high. If this happens, pull to the side of the road 
when it is safe, shift to park, and idle the engine until the indicator goes out. If the 
indicator does not go out, take your vehicle to a dealer to have it checked.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Tire Fill Assist

Driving

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Tire 
Fill Assist

Monitors the tire pressure while you are 
driving. If your vehicle’s tire pressure becomes 
significantly low, the Low Tire Pressure/TPMS 
indicator comes on and a message appears on 
the multi-information display.

1

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Tire Fill Assist

Conditions such as low ambient temperature and 
altitude change directly affect tire pressure and can 
trigger the Low Tire Pressure/TPMS indicator to come 
on.

2

If the Low Tire Pressure/TPMS Indicator 
Comes On or Blinks

 P. 560

Tire pressure checked and inflated in:

Warm weather can become under-inflated in 
colder weather.

Cold weather can become overinflated in warmer 
weather.

The Low Tire Pressure/TPMS indicator will not come 
on as a result of overinflation.

Only use genuine TPMS specified wheels since your 
vehicle’s wheels are equipped with the low tire 
pressure/TPMS sensor.
If you drive your vehicle without the genuine TPMS 
specified wheels, the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator 
blinks for about one minute and then stays on.

Tire and Wheel Replacement

 P. 522

The TPMS audibly and visually informs you of 
changes in tire pressure of the individual tire that you 
are adjusting using audible and visual indications.

If a change in tire pressure has been significant, the 
system beeps and the hazard lights flash continuously 
for five seconds when the specified tire pressure is 
reached. Stop filling the tire.

significant difference between the two values, or if 
the Low Tire Pressure/TPMS indicator and the 
message on the multi-information display do not go 
off after you have inflated the tire to the specified 
pressure, have the system checked by a dealer.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required Federal Explanation

Driving

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required 
Federal Explanation

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked 
monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure 
recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard 
or tire inflation pressure label.

(If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated 
on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should 
determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with 
a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low 
tire pressure telltale 

when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you 
should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate 
them to the proper pressure.

Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to 
overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces 
fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s 
handling and stopping ability.

419

uu

When Driving

u

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required Federal Explanation

Driving

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire 
maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain 
correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the 
level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction 
indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly.
The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire 
pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the 
telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain 
continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon 
subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists.

When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may 
not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended.

TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including 
the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the 
vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly.

Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or 
more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the 
replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to 
continue to function properly.

Driving

Blind spot information System

*

Is designed to detect vehicles in specified alert zones adjacent to your vehicle, 
particularly in harder to see areas commonly known as “blind spots.”

When the system detects vehicles approaching from behind in adjacent lanes, the 
appropriate indicator comes on for a few seconds, providing assistance when you 
change lanes.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

TM

 (CMBS

TM

)

The system can assist you when it determines there is a possibility of your vehicle 
colliding with a vehicle or a pedestrian detected in front of your vehicle. The CMBS

TM

 

is designed to alert you when the potential for a collision is determined, as well as to 
reduce your vehicle speed to help minimize collision severity when a collision is 
deemed unavoidable.

Important Safety Reminder

The CMBS

TM

 is designed to reduce the severity of an 

unavoidable collision. It does not prevent collisions nor 
stop the vehicle automatically. It is still your 
responsibility to operate the brake pedal and steering 
wheel appropriately according to the driving conditions.

The CMBS

TM

 may not activate or may not detect a 

vehicle in front of your vehicle under certain conditions:

How the system works

Rapid vibrations on the steering wheel alert you 
when your vehicle speed is between 19 and 62 mph 
(30 and 100 km/h) with an oncoming vehicle 
detected in front of you.

When the CMBS

TM

 activates, it may automatically 

apply the brake. It will be canceled when your vehicle 
stops or a potential collision is not determined.

The system starts monitoring the roadway ahead when your vehicle speed is about 
3 mph (5 km/h) or above and will search for a vehicle in front of you.

The radar sensor is 
behind the emblem.

The CMBS

TM

 activates when:

The speed difference between your vehicle and a vehicle or pedestrian 
detected in front of you becomes about 3 mph (5 km/h) and over with a chance 
of a collision.

Your vehicle speed is about 62 mph (100 km/h) or less and there is a chance of a 
collision with an oncoming detected vehicle or a pedestrian in front of you.

The camera is
