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 pressures, and check for damage and excessive wear.

2

Checking and Maintaining Tires

 P. 519

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

Store or secure all items on board properly.

u

Carrying too much cargo, or improperly storing it, can affect your vehicle’s 
handling, stability, stopping distance, and tires, and make it unsafe.

2

Maximum Load Limit

 P. 379

Do not pile items higher than the seat height.

u

They can block your view and may be thrown forward in the event of sudden 
braking.

Do not place anything in the front seat footwells. Make sure to secure the floor 
mat.

u

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

If you have any animals on board, do not let them move around in the vehicle.

u

They may interfere with driving and a crash could occur.

Securely close and lock all doors and the trunk.

The headlight aim is set by the factory, and does not 
need to be adjusted. However, if you regularly carry 
heavy items in the trunk, have the aiming readjusted

Driving Preparation

Driving

Be sure items placed on the floor behind the front seats cannot roll under the 
seats.

u

They can interfere with the driver’s ability to operate the pedals, the operation 
of the seats, or the operation of the sensors under the seats.

Everyone in the vehicle must fasten their seat belt.

Fastening a Seat Belt

 P. 47

Make sure that the indicators in the instrument panel come on when you start the 
vehicle, and go off soon after.

Maximum Load Limit

Continued

Driving

Maximum Load Limit

The maximum load for your vehicle is 850 lbs (385 kg).
See the Tire and Loading Information label attached to the driver’s 
doorjamb.

This figure includes the total weight of all occupants, cargo, and 
accessories, and the tongue load if you are towing a trailer

.

Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit -

(1)

Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and 
cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.” on your 
vehicle’s placard.

(2)

Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers 
that will be riding in your vehicle.

(3)

Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers 
from XXX kg or XXX lbs.

(4)

The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and 
luggage load capacity. For example, if the “XXX” amount 
equals 1,400 lbs. and there will be five 150 lb. passengers in 
your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load 
capacity is 650 lbs. (1,400 - 750 (5 x 150) = 650 lbs.)

Maximum Load Limit

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR):
The maximum allowable weight of the vehicle, all 
occupants, all accessories and all cargo.

WARNING

Overloading or improper loading 

can affect handling and stability 

and cause a crash in which you 

can be hurt or killed.
Follow all load limits and other 

loading guidelines in this manual.

Label Example

uu

Before Driving

u

Maximum Load Limit

380

Driving

(5)

Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being 
loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the 
available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in step 4.

(6)

If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will 
be transferred to your vehicle. Consult this manual to 
determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage 
load capacity of your vehicle.

In addition, the total weight of the vehicle, all occupants, 
accessories, cargo, and trailer tongue load must not exceed the 
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or the Gross Axle Weight 
Rating (GAWR). Both are on a label on the driver’s doorjamb.
