Important Safety Reminders
The LKAS is for your convenience only. It is not a 
substitute for your vehicle control. The system does 
not work if you take your hands off the steering 
wheel or fail to steer the vehicle.

Multi-Information Display Warning and 

Information Messages

*

 P. 93

Do not place objects on the instrument panel. 
Objects may reflect on the windshield and prevent 
correct detection of the traffic lanes.

The LKAS only alerts you when lane drift is detected 
without a turn signal in use. The LKAS may not detect 
all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will 
vary based on weather, speed, and lane marker 
condition.
It is always your responsibility to safely operate the 
vehicle and avoid collisions.

The LKAS is convenient when it is used on freeways.

The LKAS may not work properly or may work 
improperly under the certain conditions:

Tactile and visual alerts

Rapid vibrations on the steering wheel 
and a warning display alert you that the 
vehicle is drifting out of a detected lane.

Steering input assist

The system applies torque to the steering to keep the vehicle between the left and 
right lane lines. The applied torque becomes stronger as the vehicle gets closer to 
either of the lane lines.

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®), aka Electronic Stability Control (ESC), System

Continued

Driving

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®), aka Electronic 
Stability Control (ESC), System

Helps to stabilize the vehicle during cornering if the vehicle turns more or less than 
what was intended. It also assists in maintaining traction on slippery surfaces. It does 
so by regulating engine output and selectively applying the brakes.

When VSA® activates, you may notice that the 
engine does not respond to the accelerator. 
You may also notice some noise from the 
hydraulic system. You will also see the 
indicator blink.

VSA® Operation

1

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®), aka Electronic Stability Control 
(ESC), System

VSA® may not function properly if tire type and size 
are mixed. Make sure to use the same size and type 
of tire, and the air pressures as specified.

When the VSA® indicator comes on and stays on 
while driving, there may be a problem with the 
system. While this may not interfere with normal 
driving, have your vehicle checked by a dealer 
immediately.

VSA® cannot enhance stability in all driving situations 
and does not control the entire braking system. You 
still need to drive and corner at speeds appropriate 
for the conditions and always leave a sufficient 
margin of safety.

The main function of the VSA® system is generally 
known as Electronic Stability Control (ESC). The 
system also includes a traction control function.

This button is on the driver side control panel. 
To partially turn the VSA features on and off, 
press and hold it until you hear a beep.

The traction control stops fully functioning, 
allows the wheels to spin more freely at low 
speed. The VSA® OFF indicator will also come 
on.

To turn it on again, press the 

 (VSA® OFF

button until you hear a beep.

VSA® is turned on every time you start the 
engine, even if you turned it off the last time 
you drove the vehicle.

VSA® OFF Button

1

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®), aka Electronic Stability Control 
(ESC), System

With the 

 button pressed, your vehicle will have 

normal braking and cornering ability, but VSA® 
traction and stability enhancement becomes less 
effective.

In certain unusual conditions when your vehicle gets 
stuck in shallow mud or fresh snow, it may be easier 
to free it with the VSA® temporarily switched off.

When the 

 button is pressed, the traction control 

function becomes less effective. This allows for the 
wheels to spin more freely at low speed. You should 
only attempt to free your vehicle with the VSA® off if 
you are not able to free it when the VSA® is on.

Immediately after freeing your vehicle, be sure to 
switch VSA® on again. We do not recommend driving 
your vehicle with the VSA® system switched off.

You may hear a motor sound coming from the 
engine compartment while system checks are being 
performed immediately after starting the engine or 
while driving. This is normal.

Driving

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Instead of directly measuring the pressure in each tire, the TPMS on this vehicle 
monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational characteristics of each 
wheel and tire while you are driving to determine if one or more tires are 
significantly under-inflated. This will cause the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator to 
come on and a message to appear on the multi-information display

.

You must start TPMS calibration every time you:
• Adjust the pressure in one or more tires.
• Rotate the tires.
• Replace one or more tires.

Before calibrating the TPMS:
• Set the cold tire pressure in all four tires.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The system does not monitor the tires when driving 
at low speed.

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.

Tire pressure checked and inflated in:

Warm weather can become under-inflated in 
colder weather.

Cold weather can become over-inflated in warmer 
weather.

The low tire pressure indicator will not come on as a 
result of over inflation.

The TPMS may not function properly if tire type and 
size are mixed. Make sure to use the same size and 
type of tire.

Checking and Maintaining Tires P. 539

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required Federal Explanation

Continued

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.

U.S. models

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.
