Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System

TM

*

Your vehicle is equipped with the AWD system. When the system senses a loss of 
front wheel traction, it automatically transfers some power to the rear wheels. This 
allows you to utilize all available traction and may increase mobility.

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

If you excessively spin all four wheels and overheat the AWD system, only the front 
wheels receive power. Stop until the system cools down.

NOTICE

Do not continuously spin the front tires of your 
vehicle. Continuously spinning the front tires can 
cause transmission or rear differential damage.

The AWD system 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.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Continued

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/TPMS 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. 549

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on 
with a delay or may not come on at all when:

You rapidly accelerate, decelerate, or turn the 
steering wheel.

You drive on snowy or slippery roads.

Snow chains are used.

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on 
under the following conditions:

A compact spare tire is used.

There is a heavier and uneven load on the tires than 
the condition at calibration.

Snow chains are used.

Driving

Press and hold the TPMS button until the low 
tire pressure/TPMS indicator blinks twice, 
indicating the calibration process has begun.
• If the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator does 

not blink, confirm the above conditions 
then press and hold the TPMS button again.

• The calibration process finishes 

automatically.

*1: Models with the smart entry system have an ENGINE START/STOP button instead of an 
ignition switch.

TPMS Calibration

TPMS cannot be calibrated if a compact spare tire is 
installed.

The calibration process requires approximately 30 
minutes of cumulative driving at speeds between 
30-60 mph (48-97 km/h).

During this period, if the ignition is turned on

*1

 and 

the vehicle is not moved within 45 seconds, you 
may notice the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator 
comes on briefly. This is normal and indicates that 
the calibration process is not yet complete.

If the snow chains are installed, remove them before 
calibrating the TPMS.

If the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator comes on even 
when the properly inflated specified regular tires are 
installed, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

We recommend that the tires be replaced with the 
same brand, model, and size as the originals. Ask a 
dealer for details.

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.

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.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

TM

 (CMBS

TM

)

Can assist you when there is a possibility of your vehicle colliding with a vehicle or a 
pedestrian detected in front of yours. The CMBS

TM

 is designed to alert you when a 

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

How the system works

)

Important Safety Reminder
The CMBS

TM

 is designed to reduce the severity of an 

unavoidable collision. It does not prevent a collision 
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:

CMBS

TM

 Conditions and Limitations P. 461

You can read about handling information for the 
camera equipped with this system.

Front Sensor Camera P. 494

For directions on the proper handling of the radar 
sensor, refer to the following page.

Radar Sensor P. 496

1

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.

When to use

The camera is 
located behind 
the rearview 
mirror.

The radar sensor is 
in the front grille.

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

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.
