Brake System

576

Driving

Your vehicle is equipped with disc brakes at all four wheels. The brake assist system 
increases the stopping force when you depress the brake pedal hard in an 
emergency situation. The anti-lock brake system (ABS) helps you retain steering 
control when braking very hard.

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) P. 581

Foot Brake

Foot Brake

Check the brakes after driving through deep water, 
or if there is a buildup of road surface water. If 
necessary, dry the brakes by lightly depressing the 
pedal several times.

If you hear a continuous metallic friction sound when 
applying the brakes, this is caused by the brake wear 
indicator rubbing on the brake disk and indicates that 
the brake pads need to be replaced. Have the vehicle 
checked by a dealer. If you hear only an occasional 
squeak or squeal when you initially apply the brake 
pedal, this may be normal and caused by high 
frequency vibration of the brake pads against the 
rotating brake disc.

Constantly using the brake pedal while going down a 
long hill builds up heat, which reduces the brake 
effectiveness. Apply engine braking by taking your 
foot off the accelerator pedal and downshifting to a 
lower gear/speed position. With manual 
transmission

*

 use a lower gear for greater engine 

braking.

Do not rest your foot on the brake pedal while 
driving, as it will lightly apply the brakes and cause 
them to lose effectiveness over time and reduce pad 
life. It will also confuse drivers behind you.

Whenever the brakes are activated by CMBS

TM

 or 

another system that automatically controls braking, 
the brake pedal is depressed and released in 
accordance with braking function.

WARNING

Activating the automatic brake hold system 
on steep hills or slippery roads may still 
allow the vehicle to move if you remove 
your foot from the brake pedal.

If a vehicle unexpectedly moves, it may 
cause a crash resulting in serious injury or 
death.

Never activate the automatic brake hold 
system or rely on it to keep a vehicle from 
moving when stopped on a steep hill or 
slippery roads.

WARNING

Using the automatic brake hold system to 
park the vehicle may result in the vehicle 
unexpectedly moving.

If a vehicle moves unexpectedly, it may 
cause a crash, resulting in serious injury or 
death.

Never leave the vehicle when braking is 
temporarily kept by automatic brake hold

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

Driving

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

Helps prevent the wheels from locking up, and helps you retain steering control by 
pumping the brakes rapidly, much faster than you.

The electronic brake distribution (EBD) system, which is part of the ABS, also 
balances the front-to-rear braking distribution according to vehicle loading.

You should never pump the brake pedal. Let the ABS work for you by always 
keeping firm, steady pressure on the brake pedal. This is sometimes referred to as 
“stomp and steer.”

ABS operation

The brake pedal may pulsate slightly when the ABS is working. Keep holding the 
pedal firmly down. On dry pavement, you will need to press on the brake pedal very 
hard before the ABS activates. However, you may feel the ABS activate immediately 
if you are trying to stop on snow or ice.

ABS may activate when you depress the brake pedal when driving on:
• Wet or snow covered roads.
• Roads paved with stone.
• Roads with uneven surfaces, such as potholes, cracks, manholes, etc.

When the vehicle speed goes under 6 mph (10 km/h), the ABS stops.

ABS

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

NOTICE

The ABS may not function correctly if you use a tire of 
the wrong size or type.

If the ABS indicator comes on while driving, there 
may be a problem with the system. While normal 
braking will not be affected, there is a possibility that 
the ABS will not be operating. Have your vehicle 
checked by a dealer immediately.

The ABS is not designed for the purpose of reducing 
the time or distance it takes for a vehicle to stop: It is 
designed to limit brake lockup which can lead to 
skidding and loss of steering control.

In the following cases, your vehicle may need more 
distance to stop than a vehicle without the ABS:

You are driving on rough or uneven road surfaces, 
such as gravel or snow.

The tires are equipped with snow chains

*

.

The following may be observed with the ABS system:

Motor sounds coming from the engine 
compartment when the brakes are applied, or 
when system checks are being performed after the 
engine has been started and while the vehicle 
accelerates.

Brake pedal and/or the vehicle body vibration when 
ABS activates.

These vibrations and sounds are normal to ABS 
systems and are no cause for concern.

Brake assist system operation

In extremely cold temperatures, the parking brake 
may freeze up if applied. If such temperatures are 
expected, do not apply the parking brake but, if 
parking on a slope, either turn the front wheels so 
they will contact the curb if the vehicle rolls down the 
slope or block the wheels to keep the vehicle from 
moving. If you do not take either precaution, the 
vehicle may roll unexpectedly, leading to a crash.

When a vehicle is detected approaching from a rear corner, Cross Traffic Monitor

The system will not detect a vehicle that approaches from directly behind your 
vehicle, nor will it provide alerts about a detected vehicle when it moves directly 
behind your vehicle.

The system does not provide alerts for a vehicle that is moving away from your 
vehicle, and it may alert for pedestrians, bicycles, or stationary objects.

How the System Works

1

Cross Traffic Monitor

*

Cross Traffic Monitor may not detect or may delay 
alerting an approaching vehicle, or may alert without 
an approaching vehicle under the following 
conditions:

An obstacle, such as another vehicle and a wall, 
near your vehicle’s rear bumper, is blocking the 
radar sensor’s scope.

Your vehicle is moving at the speed of about 3 mph 
(5 km/h) or higher.

A vehicle is approaching at the speed other than 
between about 6 mph (10 km/h) and 16 mph (25 
km/h).

The system picks up external interference such as 
other radar sensors from another vehicle or strong 
radio wave transmitted from a facility nearby.

Either corner of the rear bumper is covered with 
snow, ice, mud or dirt.

When there is bad weather.

Your vehicle is on an incline.

Your vehicle is tilted due to a heavy load in the rear.

Your vehicle is reversing towards a wall, a pole, a 
vehicle, and so on.

The rear bumper or the sensors have been improperly 
repaired or the rear bumper has been deformed. 
Have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

For proper operation, always keep the rear bumper 
corner area clean.
Do not cover the rear bumper corner area with labels 
or stickers of any kind.
