Driving

Before Driving

Driving Preparation

Check the following items before you start driving.

• Make sure there are no obstructions on the windows, door mirrors, exterior 

lights, or other parts of the vehicle.

u

Remove any frost, snow, or ice.

u

Remove any snow on the roof, as this can slip down and obstruct your field of 
vision while driving. If frozen solid, remove ice once it has softened.

u

When removing ice from around the wheels, be sure not to damage the wheel 
or wheel components.

• Make sure the hood is securely closed.

u

If the hood opens while driving, your front view will be blocked.

• Make sure the tires are in good condition.

u

Check air pressure, check for damage and excessive wear.

Checking and Maintaining Tires P. 547

• Make sure the tailgate is fully closed when it is not being used as an extended 

pickup bed.

• Make sure the trunk is securely closed and locked.
• Make sure there are no people or objects behind or around the vehicle.

u

There are blind spots from the inside.

Exterior Checks

Exterior Checks

NOTICE

When doors are frozen shut, use warm water around 
the door edges to melt any ice. Do not try to force 
them open, as this can damage the rubber trim 
around the doors. When done, wipe dry to avoid 
further freezing.

Do not pour warm water into the key cylinder.
You will be unable to insert the key if the water 
freezes in the hole.

Heat from the engine and exhaust can ignite 
flammable materials left under the hood, causing a 
fire. If you’ve parked your vehicle for an extended 
period, inspect and remove any debris that may have 
collected, such as dried grass and leaves that have 
fallen or have been carried in for use as a nest by a 
small animal. Also check under the hood for leftover 
flammable materials after you or someone else has 
performed maintenance on your vehicle.

Driving Preparation

Driving

mat.

u

An object or unsecured floor mat can interfere with your brake and accelerator 
pedal operation while driving.

u

They may interfere with driving and a crash could occur.

• Securely close and lock all doors.
