Deceleration Paddle Selector

Driving

Deceleration Paddle Selector

When you release the accelerator pedal, you can control the rate of deceleration 
without releasing your hands from the steering wheel. Using the deceleration 
paddle selector situated on the steering wheel, you can sequentially shift through 
three stages of deceleration.
When descending a hill, you can use the deceleration paddle selector to help 
maintain the rate of deceleration, thereby allowing you to keep a safe distance 
between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead.

The default deceleration stage is 

. Each 

paddle selector operation makes a single 
stage deceleration change.

u

The deceleration stage may not change if 
you pull the paddle selector 
continuously.

To select the different stages of deceleration:

Pull back the 

(

+

 selector (right side) to decrease the deceleration stage.

Pull back the 

(

-

 selector (left side) to increase the deceleration stage.

Pull the 

(

+

 selector for a few seconds when you want to cancel the deceleration 

paddle selector.

If you are descending a hill when you select stage 

the vehicle may enter stage 

If you pull back right and left paddle selector at the 
same time, the deceleration stage may not change.

CAUTION

Rapidly increasing the deceleration rate by 
quickly shifting the deceleration paddle 
selector can cause the tires to skid, resulting 
in a crash that could injure or kill someone.

Always maintain a reasonable rate of 
deceleration.

selector. The deceleration stage may decrease or 
cancel automatically:

The high voltage battery is fully charged or its 
temperature is too cold or too hot.

The speed of the vehicle is beyond the deceleration 
range with SPORT mode off.

Hybrid system protection is needed.

The paddle selector is operated while your vehicle is

than what was intended. It also assists in maintaining traction on slippery surfaces. 
It does so by regulating engine and motor output and selectively applying the 
brakes.

When VSA

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Driving

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Instead of directly measuring the pressure in each tire, the TPMS on this vehicle 
monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational characteristics of each 
wheel and tire while you are driving to determine if one or more tires are 
significantly under-inflated.

This will cause the low tire pressure/TPMS 
indicator to come on and a message to appear 
on the driver information interface.

You must start TPMS calibration every time you:

Adjust the pressure in one or more tires.

Rotate the tires.

Replace one or more tires.

Before calibrating the TPMS:

Set the cold tire pressure in all four tires.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The system does not monitor the tires when driving 
at low speed.

Conditions such as low ambient temperature and 
altitude change directly affect tire pressure and can 
trigger the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator to come on.

Tire pressure checked and inflated in:

Warm weather can become under-inflated in 
colder weather.

Cold weather can become over-inflated in warmer 
weather.

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator will not come 
on as a result of over inflation.

The TPMS may not function properly if tire type and 
size are mixed. Make sure to use the same size and 
type of tire.

Checking and Maintaining Tires

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on 
with a delay or may not come on at all when:

You rapidly accelerate, decelerate, or turn the 
steering wheel.

You drive on snowy or slippery roads.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required Federal Explanation

Continued

Driving

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required 
Federal Explanation

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked 
monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure 
recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard 
or tire inflation pressure label.

(If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated 
on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should 
determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with 
a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low 
tire pressure telltale 

when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you 
should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate 
them to the proper pressure.

Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to 
overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces 
fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's 
handling and stopping ability.

410

uu

When Driving

u

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required Federal Explanation

Driving

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire 
maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain 
correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the 
level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction 
indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. 
The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire 
pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the 
telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain 
continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon 
subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists.

When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may 
not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended.

TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including 
the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the 
vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly.

Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or 
more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the 
replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to 
continue to function properly.

Blind spot information System

Continued

Driving

Blind spot information System

Is designed to detect vehicles in specified alert zones adjacent to your vehicle, 
particularly in harder to see areas commonly known as “blind spots.”

When the system detects vehicles approaching from behind in adjacent lanes, the 
appropriate indicator comes on for a few seconds, providing assistance when you 
change lanes.

How the system works

1

Blind spot information System

Important Safety Reminder

Like all assistance systems, blind spot information 
system has limitations. Overreliance on blind spot 
information system may result in a collision.

The blind spot information system alert indicator may 
not come on under the following conditions:

A vehicle does not stay in the alert zone for more 
than two seconds.

A vehicle is parked in a side lane.

The speed difference between your vehicle and the 
vehicle you are passing is greater than 6 mph (10 
km/h).

An object not detected by the radar sensors 
approaches or passes your vehicle.

A vehicle running in the adjacent lane is a 
motorcycle or other small vehicle.

WARNING

Failure to visually confirm that it is safe to 
change lanes before doing so may result in 
a crash and serious injury or death.
Do not rely only on the blind spot 
information system when changing lanes.

Always look in your mirrors, to either side 
of your vehicle, and behind you for other 
vehicles before changing lanes.
