Margin of Error Between Road Surface on Screen and Actual Road Surface
There might be some margin of error between the road surface appearing on the screen and
the actual road surface. A margin of error in the perceived distance could lead to an
accident, therefore be aware of the following conditions which can more easily produce
errors in the perceived distance.
The vehicle tilts due to weight of passengers and cargo.
If the vehicle is tilted, obstructions picked up by a camera can appear farther or closer than
the actual distance from the vehicle.

When Driving
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) monitors the pressure for each tire.
If tire pressure is too low in one or more tires, the system will inform the driver via the
warning light in the instrument cluster and by the warning beep sound.
Refer to Contact Authorized Mazda Dealer and Have Vehicle Inspected on page 7-28.
Refer to Taking Action on page 7-35.
Refer to Tire Inflation Pressure Warning Beep on page 7-48.
The tire pressure sensors installed on each wheel send tire pressure data by radio signal to
the receiver unit in the vehicle.
Tire pressure sensors
NOTE
When the ambient temperature is low due to seasonal changes, tire temperatures are also
lower. When the tire temperature decreases, the air pressure decreases as well. The TPMS
warning light may illuminate more frequently. Visually inspect the tires daily before driving,
and check tire pressures monthly with a tire pressure gauge. When checking tire pressures,
use of a digital tire pressure gauge is recommended.
TPMS does not alleviate your need to check the pressure and condition of all four tires
regularly.
CAUTION
¾ 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.)
4-232
When Driving
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
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.
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.
¾ To avoid false readings, the system samples for a little while before indicating a problem. As
a result it will not instantaneously register a rapid tire deflation or blow out.

When Driving
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System
(SKYACTIV-D 2.2)
The SCR system is designed to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) in the exhaust gas and purify
the exhaust gas by injecting it with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).
WARNING
Be careful not to allow the DEF to run out. If the DEF completely runs out, the SCR system will
not operate normally.
When the remaining DEF is low, a message is displayed on the multi-information display, and
the SCR warning light turns on/flashes.
Refer to Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System Indications on page 4-237.
In this case, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer. If DEF needs to be replenished, add DEF
following the specified procedure.
Refer to Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Replenishment on page 6-30.
NOTE
DEF needs to be replenished periodically according to the scheduled maintenance
information.
Normally, the vehicle can be driven about 12,000 km (7,500 miles) before the DEF needs
to be replenished. However, it may need to be replenished earlier depending on the
driving and environmental conditions (such as putting a high load on the engine while
driving or driving the vehicle at high altitudes).
The sound of the SCR system operating may be heard from the area under the vehicle,
however, this does not indicate a problem.
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) System Indications
As the remaining amount of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) lowers, the SCR system notifies
the driver using the following indications.
The vehicle speed may be restricted for a while even if the warning light turns off after
replenishing the DEF. To cancel the vehicle speed restriction immediately, switch the
ignition OFF after the warning light turns off and then switch the ignition ON again.

When Driving
Rear View Monitor
Rear View Monitor*
The rear view monitor provides visual images of the rear of the vehicle when reversing.
WARNING
Always drive carefully confirming the safety of the rear and the surrounding conditions by
looking directly with your eyes:
Reversing the vehicle by only looking at the screen is dangerous as it may cause an accident
or a collision with an object. The rear view monitor is only a visual assist device when
reversing the vehicle. The images on the screen may be different from the actual conditions.
CAUTION
¾ Do not use the rear view monitor under the following conditions: Using the rear view
monitor under the following conditions is dangerous and could result in injury or vehicle
damage or both.
¾ Icy or snow-covered roads.
¾ Tire chains or a temporary spare tire is installed.
¾ The trunk lid is not fully closed.
¾ The vehicle is on a road incline.
¾ When the display is cold, images may course across the monitor or the screen and may be
dimmer than usual, which could cause difficulty in confirming the surrounding conditions
of the vehicle. Always drive carefully confirming the safety of the rear and the surrounding
conditions by looking directly with your eyes.
¾ Do not apply excessive force to the camera. The camera position and angle may deviate.
¾ Do not disassemble, modify, or remove it as it may no longer be waterproof.
¾ The camera cover is made of plastic. Do not apply degreasing agents, organic solvents,
wax, or glass coating agents to the camera cover. If any are spilled on the cover, wipe off
with a soft cloth immediately.
¾ Do not rub the camera cover forcefully with an abrasive or hard brush. The camera cover or
lens may be scratched which might affect the images.
NOTE
If water, snow, or mud is stuck on the camera lens, wipe it off using a soft cloth. If it
cannot be wiped off, use a mild detergent.
If the camera temperature changes rapidly (Hot to cold, cold to hot), the rear view
monitor may not operate correctly.
When replacing the tires, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer. Replacing the tires could
result in deviation of the guide lines which appear on the display.
