If a Tire Goes Flat

Changing a Flat Tire

If a tire goes flat while driving, grasp the steering wheel firmly, and brake gradually 
to reduce speed. Then, stop in a safe place. Replace the flat tire with a compact 
spare tire. Go to a dealer as soon as possible to have the full-size tire repaired or 
replaced.

1. Park the vehicle on firm, level, non-slippery surface and apply the parking brake.

2. Move the shift lever to

Changing a Flat Tire

Follow compact spare precautions:
Periodically check the tire pressure of the compact 
spare. It should be set to the specified pressure. 
Specified Pressure: 60 psi (420 kPa, 4.2 kgf/cm

)

When driving with the compact spare tire, keep the 
vehicle speed under 50 mph (80 km/h). Replace with 
a full-size tire as soon as possible.

The compact spare tire and wheel in your vehicle are 
specifically for this model.
Do not use them with another vehicle.
Do not use another type of compact spare tire or 
wheel with your vehicle.

Do not mount tire chains on a compact spare tire. 
If a chain-mounted front tire goes flat, remove one of 
the full-size rear tires and replace it with the compact 
spare tire. Remove the flat front tire and replace it 
with the full-size tire that was removed from the rear. 
Mount the tire chains on the front tire.

Do not use the jack if it doesn’t work properly. Call 
your dealer or a professional towing service.

Use the jack provided in your vehicle.
Other jacks may not support the weight (“load”) or 
may not fit the jacking point.

The following instructions must be followed to use 
the jack safely:

Do not use while the engine is running.

Use only where the ground is firm and level.

Use only at the jacking points.

Do not get in the vehicle while using the jack.

Do not put anything on top of or underneath the 
jack.

WARNING

The vehicle can easily roll off the jack, 
seriously injuring anyone underneath.

Follow the directions for changing a tire 
exactly, and no person should place any 
portion of their body under a vehicle that is 
supported by a jack.

Emergency Engine Stop

The ENGINE START/STOP button may be used to stop the engine due to an 
emergency situation even while driving. If you must stop the engine, do either of the 
following operations:
• Press and hold the ENGINE START/STOP button for about two seconds.
• Firmly press the ENGINE START/STOP button three times.

The steering wheel will not lock. However, because turning off the engine disables 
the power assist the engine provides to the steering and braking systems, it will 
require significantly more physical effort and time to steer and slow the vehicle. Use 
both feet on the brake pedal to slow down the vehicle and stop immediately in a 
safe place. With manual transmission models you can also downshift the 
transmission to utilize engine braking.

The power mode is in ACCESSORY when the engine is stopped.
To change the mode to VEHICLE OFF, move the shift lever to 

(

P after the vehicle 

comes to a complete stop.

Then press the ENGINE START/STOP button twice without depressing the brake 
pedal.

Jump Starting

Turn off the power to electric devices, such as audio and lights. Turn off the engine, 
then open the hood.

1. Connect the first jumper cable to your 

vehicle’s battery + terminal.

u

Remove the cover from the under-hood 
fuse box.

2. Connect the other end of the first jumper 

cable to the booster battery + terminal.

u

Use a 12-volt booster battery only.

u

Connect when using the automotive 
battery charger to boost your 12-volt 
battery, select a lower charging voltage 
than 15-volt. Check the charger manual 
for the proper setting.

3. Connect the second jumper cable to the 

booster battery - terminal.

4. Connect the other end of the second 

jumper cable to the stud bolt as shown. Do 
not connect this jumper cable to any other 
part.

5. If your vehicle is connected to another 

vehicle, start the assisting vehicle’s engine 
and increase its rpm slightly.

6. Attempt to start your vehicle’s engine. If it 

turns over slowly, check that the jumper 
cables have good metal-to-metal contact.

Jump Starting Procedure

1

Jump Starting

Securely attach the jumper cables clips so that they 
do not come off when the engine vibrates. Also be 
careful not to tangle the jumper cables or allow the 
cable ends to touch each other while attaching or 
detaching the jumper cables.

Battery performance degrades in cold conditions and 
may prevent the engine from starting.

WARNING

A battery can explode if you do not follow 
the correct procedure, seriously injuring 
anyone nearby.

Keep all sparks, open flames, and smoking 
materials away from the battery.
