Wear Indicators

Main

Wear Indicators

The groove where the wear indicator is 
located is about 1.6 mm (about 1/16 inch) 
shallower than elsewhere on the tyre. If the 
tread has worn so that the indicator is 
exposed, replace the tyre.

Worn out tyres have poor traction on wet 
roads.

Tyre Service Life

The life of your tyres is dependent on many factors, including driving habits, road 
conditions, vehicle loading, inflation pressure, maintenance history, speed, and 
environmental conditions (even when the tyres are not in use).

In addition to regular inspections and inflation pressure maintenance, it is 
recommended that you have annual inspections performed once the tyres reach five 
years old. All tyres should be removed from service after 10 years from the date of 
manufacture, regardless of their condition or state of wear.

Tyre and Wheel Replacement

Replace your tyres with radials of the same size, load range, speed rating, and 
maximum cold tyre pressure rating (as shown on the tyre’s sidewall). Using tyres of 
a different size or construction can cause certain vehicle systems such as the ABS 
and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system to work incorrectly.

It is best to replace all four tyres at the same time. If that isn’t possible, replace the 
front or rear tyres in pairs.

Make sure that the wheel’s specifications match those of the original wheels.

WARNING

Installing improper tyres on your vehicle 
can affect handling and stability. This can 
cause a crash in which you can be seriously 
hurt or killed.

Always use the size and type of tyres 
recommended in the tyre information label 
on your vehicle.

Snow Traction Devices

If driving on snowy or frozen roads, mount winter tyres, or tyre chains; reduce 
speed; and maintain sufficient distance between vehicles when driving.

Be particularly careful when operating the steering wheel or brakes to prevent 
skidding.

Use tyre chains, winter tyres, or all season tyres when necessary or according to the 
law.

When mounting, refer to the following points.

For winter tyres:

Select the size and load ranges that are the same as the original tyres.

Mount the tyres to all four wheels.

For tyre chains:

Consult a dealer before purchasing any type of chains for your vehicle.

Install them on the rear tyres only.

Because your vehicle has limited tyre clearance, we strongly recommend using the 
chains listed below:

*1:Original tyre size is mentioned on the tyre information label on the driver’s 

doorjamb.

Follow the chain manufacturer’s instruction when installing. Mount them as 
tightly as you can.

Check that the chains do not touch the brake lines or suspension.

Drive slowly.

Snow Traction Devices

NOTICE

Traction devices that are the wrong size or improperly installed 
can damage your vehicle’s brake lines, suspension, body, and 
wheels. Stop driving if they are hitting any part of the vehicle.

According to the EU legislation for tyres, when winter tyres are 
used, it is necessary to affix a sticker with the allowable max. 
speed of the winter tyres clearly in the field of view of the 
driver, if the designed max. speed of vehicle is higher than the 
allowed max. speed of winter tyre. A sticker is obtainable from 
your tyre dealer. If you have any question, consult a dealer.

When tyre chains are mounted, follow the chain manufacturer’s 
instructions regarding vehicle operational limits.

Use tyre chains only in an emergency or when they 
are legally required for driving through a certain area.

Use greater caution when driving with tyre chains on snow or ice. They 
may have less-predictable handling than good winter tyres without chains.

If your vehicle is equipped with summer tyres, be aware 
that these tyres are not designed for winter driving 
conditions. For more information, contact a dealer.

3

WARNING

Using the wrong chains, or not properly 
installing chains, can damage the brake 
lines and cause a crash in which you can be 
seriously injured or killed.

Follow all instructions in this owner’s 
manual regarding the selection and use of 
tyre chains.

12-Volt Battery

Checking the 12-Volt Battery

The condition of the battery is monitored by a 
sensor located on the negative terminal of the 
battery. If there is a problem with this sensor, 
the driver information interface will display a 
warning message. If this happens, have your 
vehicle inspected by a dealer.

Check the battery terminals for corrosion 
monthly.

If your vehicle’s battery is disconnected or goes dead:

The audio system is disabled.

WARNING

The battery gives off explosive hydrogen 
gas during normal operation.

A spark or open flame can cause the 
battery to explode with enough force to 
kill or seriously hurt you.

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

Wear protective clothing and a face shield, 
or have a skilled technician do any battery 
maintenance.

WARNING

The battery contains sulfuric acid 
(electrolyte) which is highly corrosive and 
poisonous.

Getting electrolyte in your eyes or on your 
skin can cause serious burns. Wear 
protective clothing and eye protection 
when working on or near the battery.

Swallowing electrolyte can cause fatal 
poisoning if immediate action is not taken.

DANGER

Keep flames and sparks away from the battery. The 
battery produces explosive gas that can cause an 
explosion.

Wear eye protection and rubber gloves when 
handling the battery to avoid risk of burns or loss of 
eyesight if exposed to battery electrolyte.

Do not allow children to handle the battery, under 
any circumstance. Ensure that anyone handling the 
battery has a proper understanding of the hazards 
and correct handling procedures involved.

Handle battery electrolyte with extreme care, as it 
contains dilute sulfuric acid. Exposure to eyes or 
skin can cause burns or loss of eyesight.

Read this manual carefully, and understand it 
before handling the battery. Failure to do so can 
cause personal injury and damage to the vehicle.

Do not use the battery if the level of electrolyte is at 
or below the recommended level. Using the battery 
with low electrolyte can cause it to explode, 
causing serious injury.

Interior Care

Do not spill liquids inside the vehicle. Electrical 
devices and systems may malfunction if liquids are 
splashed on them.

Do not use silicone based sprays on electrical devices 
such as audio devices and switches. Doing so may 
cause the items to malfunction or cause a fire inside 
the vehicle.
If a silicone based spray is inadvertently used on 
electrical devices, consult a dealer.

Depending on their composition, chemicals and 
liquid aromatics may cause discolouration, wrinkles, 
and cracking to resin-based parts and textiles.
Do not use alkali solvents or organic solvents such as 
benzene or petrol.

After using chemicals, make sure to gently wipe them 
away using a dry cloth.
Do not place used cloths on top of resin based parts 
or textiles for long periods of time without washing.

Be careful not to spill a liquid type air freshener.
