Braking

u

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 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

Driving

Brake Assist System

Designed to assist the driver by generating greater braking force when you depress 
the brake pedal hard during emergency braking.

Brake assist system operation

Press the brake pedal firmly for more powerful braking.

When brake assist operates, the pedal may wiggle slightly and an operating noise 
may be heard. This is normal. Keep holding the brake pedal firmly down.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

*

Driving

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

Collision Mitigation Braking System

TM

TM

)

*

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. 614

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

Front Sensor Camera

*

 P. 564

Be careful not to have the radar sensor cover strongly 
impacted.

1

How the system works

Rapid vibrations on the steering wheel alert you 
when the 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.

When the system activates

At system’s earliest collision alert stage, you can change the distance (Long/
Normal/Short) between vehicles at which alerts will come on through audio/
information screen setting options.

List of customizable options P. 456

Vibration alert on the steering wheel

When a potential collision to an oncoming detected vehicle is determined, the 
system alerts you with rapid vibration on the steering wheel, in addition to visual and 
audible alerts.

u

Take appropriate action to prevent a collision (apply the brakes, operate the 
steering wheel, etc.).

When the system activates

The camera in the CMBS

TM

 is also designed to detect 

pedestrians.
However, this pedestrian detection feature may not 
activate or may not detect a pedestrian in front of 
your vehicle under certain conditions.
Refer to the ones indicating the pedestrian detection 
limitations from the list.

CMBS

TM

 Conditions and Limitations P. 614

The system provides visual, audible and tactile alerts of a possible collision, and 
stops if the collision is avoided.

Take appropriate action to prevent a collision (apply the brakes, change lanes, 
etc.)

at high speed.

• The vehicle ahead of you is a motorcycle, bicycle, mobility scooter or other small 

vehicle.

• When there are animals in front of your vehicle.
• When you drive on a curved, winding or undulating road that makes it difficult for

• When there is a group of people in front of your vehicle walking together side by 

side.

• Surrounding conditions or belongings of the pedestrian alter the pedestrian’s 

shape, preventing the system from recognizing that the person is a pedestrian.

At an intersection

Your vehicle approaches or passes another vehicle that is making a left or right turn.

When driving through curves, your vehicle comes to a point where an oncoming 
vehicle is right in front of you.

Through a low bridge at high speed

You drive under a low or narrow bridge at high speed.

Speed bumps, road work sites, train tracks, roadside objects, etc.

You drive over speed bumps, steel road plates, etc., or your vehicle approaches train 
tracks or roadside objects [such as a traffic sign and guard rail] on a curve or, when 
parking, stationary vehicles and walls.

Parking Your Vehicle

Do not park your vehicle near flammable objects, 
such as dry grass, oil, or timber.
Heat from the exhaust can cause a fire.

NOTICE

The following can damage the transmission:

Depressing the accelerator and brake pedals 
simultaneously.

Changing into

P before the vehicle stops 

completely.

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.
