which employs the use of two distinctly 
different kinds of sensors, a radar sensor 
located at the lower part of the front 
bumper and a front sensor camera mounted 
to the interior side of the windshield, 
behind the rearview mirror.

The system can assist you when it 
determines there is a possibility of your 
vehicle colliding with a vehicle or a 
pedestrian detected in front of your vehicle. 
The CMBS

TM

 is designed to alert you when 

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

Adaptive Cruise Control 
(ACC) with Low Speed 
Follow 

(P428)

Helps maintain a constant vehicle speed and a 
set following-interval behind a vehicle 
detected ahead of yours and, if the detected 
vehicle comes to a stop, can decelerate and 
stop your vehicle, without you having to keep 
your foot on the brake or the accelerator.

Lane Keeping Assist 
System (LKAS) 

(P 446)

Provides steering input to help keep the 
vehicle in the middle of a detected lane and 
provides tactile and visual alerts if the 
vehicle is detected drifting out of its lane.

Road Departure 
Mitigation (RDM) System 

(P 454)

Alerts and helps to assist you when the 
system detects a possibility of your vehicle 
unintentionally crossing over detected lane 
markings and/or leaving the roadway 
altogether.

What to Do If

Why does the brake pedal 
pulsate slightly when 
applying the brakes?

This can occur when the ABS activates and does not indicate a 

problem. Apply firm, steady pressure on the brake pedal. Never 

pump the brake pedal.

Check if the childproof lock is in the 

lock position. If so, open the rear door 

with the outside door handle.

To cancel this function, slide the lever 

up to the unlock position.

Why do the doors lock 
after I unlocked the doors?

If you do not open the doors within 30 seconds, the doors are 
relocked automatically for security.

Driving

For Safe Driving

The following pages explain your vehicle’s safety features and how to use them 
properly. The safety precautions below are ones that we consider to be among the 
most important.

Important Safety Precautions

Always wear your seat belt

A seat belt is your best protection in all types of collisions. Airbags are designed to 
supplement seat belts, not replace them. So even though your vehicle is equipped 
with airbags, make sure you and your passengers always wear your seat belts, and 
wear them properly.

Restrain all children

Children ages 12 and under should ride properly restrained in a back seat, not the 
front seat. Infants and small children should be restrained in a child seat. Larger 
children should use a booster seat and a lap/shoulder seat belt until they can use the 
belt properly without a booster seat.

Be aware of airbag hazards

While airbags can save lives, they can cause serious or fatal injuries to occupants 
who sit too close to them, or are not properly restrained. Infants, young children, 
and short adults are at the greatest risk. Be sure to follow all instructions and 
warnings in this manual.

Don’t drink and drive

Alcohol and driving don’t mix. Even one drink can reduce your ability to respond to 
changing conditions, and your reaction time gets worse with every additional drink. 
So don’t drink and drive, and don’t let your friends drink and drive, either.

Some states prohibit the use of cell phones other 
than hands-free devices by the driver while driving.

Important Safety Precautions

Safe 

Driving

Pay appropriate attention to the task of driving safely

Engaging in cell phone conversation or other activities that keep you from paying 
close attention to the road, other vehicles, and pedestrians could lead to a crash. 
Remember, situations can change quickly, and only you can decide when it is safe to 
divert some attention away from driving.

Control your speed

Excessive speed is a major factor in crash injuries and deaths. Generally, the higher 
the speed, the greater the risk, but serious injuries can also occur at lower speeds. 
Never drive faster than is safe for current conditions, regardless of the maximum 
speed posted.

Keep your vehicle in safe condition

Having a tire blowout or a mechanical failure can be extremely hazardous.
To reduce the possibility of such problems, check your tire pressures and condition 
frequently, and perform all regularly scheduled maintenance.

Do not leave children unattended in the vehicle

Children, pets and people needing assistance left unattended in the vehicle may be 
injured if they activate one or more of the vehicle controls. They may also cause the 
vehicle to move, resulting in a crash in which they and/or another person(s) can be 
injured or killed. Also, depending on the ambient temperature, the temperature of 
the interior may reach extreme levels, which can result in harm or death.
Even if the climate control system is on, never leave them in the vehicle unattended 
as the climate control system can shut off at any time.

Your Vehicle’s Safety Features

The following checklist will help you take an active role in protecting yourself and 
your passengers.

1

Your Vehicle’s Safety Features

Your vehicle is equipped with many features that 
work together to help protect you and your 
passengers during a crash.

Some features do not require any action on your part. 
These include a strong steel framework that forms a 
safety cage around the passenger compartment, 
front and rear crush zones, a collapsible steering 
column, and tensioners that tighten the front seat 
belts in a sufficient crash.

However, you and your passengers cannot take full 
advantage of these features unless you remain seated 
in the correct position and always wear your seat 
belts. In fact, some safety features can contribute to 
injuries if they are not used properly.
