If a Tire Goes Flat

Changing a Flat Tire

If a tire goes flat while driving, grasp the steering wheel firmly, and brake gradually 
to reduce speed. Then, stop in a safe place. Replace the flat tire with a compact 
spare tire. Go to a dealer as soon as possible to have the full-size tire repaired or 
replaced.

1.

Park the vehicle on firm, level, non-slippery surface and apply the parking brake.

2.

Put the transmission into

3.

Turn on the hazard warning lights and set the power mode to VEHICLE OFF.

Models with optional spare tire

1

Changing a Flat Tire

Follow compact spare precautions:
Periodically check the tire pressure of the compact 
spare. It should be set to the specified pressure. 
Specified Pressure: 60 psi (420 kPa, 4.2 kgf/cm

2

)

When driving with the compact spare tire, keep the 
vehicle speed under 50 mph (80 km/h). Replace with 
a full-size tire as soon as possible.

The compact spare tire and wheel in your vehicle are 
specifically for this model. Do not use them with 
another vehicle. Do not use another type of compact 
spare tire or wheel with your vehicle.

Do not mount tire chains on a compact spare tire. 
If a chain-mounted front tire goes flat, remove one of 
the full-size rear tires and replace it with the compact 
spare tire. Remove the flat front tire and replace it 
with the full-size tire that was removed from the rear. 
Mount the tire chains on the front tire.

NOTICE

Do not use the jack if it doesn’t work properly.
Call your dealer or a professional towing service.

How to Set Up the Jack

Do not use the jack with people or luggage in the 
vehicle.

Use the jack provided in your vehicle.
Other jacks may not support the weight (“load”) or 
may not fit the jacking point.

The following instructions must be followed to use 
the jack safely:

Do not use while the power system is on.

Use only where the ground is firm and level.

Use only at the jacking points.

Do not get in the vehicle while using the jack.

Do not put anything on top of or underneath the 
jack.

WARNING

The vehicle can easily roll off the jack, 
seriously injuring anyone underneath.

Follow the directions for changing a tire 
exactly, and never get under the vehicle 
when it is supported only by the jack.

Temporarily Repairing a Flat Tire

If the tire has a large cut or is otherwise severely damaged, you will need to have the 
vehicle towed. If the tire only has a small puncture, from a nail for instance, you can 
use the temporary tire repair kit so that you can drive to the nearest service station 
for a more permanent repair.

If a tire goes flat while driving, grasp the steering wheel firmly, and brake gradually 
to reduce speed. Then, stop in a safe place.

1.

Park the vehicle on a firm, level, and non-slippery surface, and apply the parking

Temporarily Repairing a Flat Tire

The kit should not be used in the following situations. 
Instead, contact a dealer or roadside assistance to 
have the vehicle towed.

The tire sealant has expired.

More than one tire is punctured.

The puncture or cut is larger than 3/16 inch (4 mm).

The tire side wall is damaged or the puncture is 
outside the contact area.

Damage has been caused by driving with the tires 
extremely under inflated.

The tire bead is no longer seated.

The rim is damaged.

Do not remove a nail or screw that punctured the 
tire. If you remove it from the tire, you may not be 
able to repair the puncture using the kit.

Injecting Sealant and Air

In cold temperatures, the sealant may not flow easily. 
In this situation, warm it up for five minutes before 
using.

The sealant can permanently stain clothing and other 
materials. Be careful during handling and wipe away 
any spills immediately.

3

CAUTION

Tire sealant contains substances that are 
harmful if inhaled, ingested or if contact is 
made with the eyes or skin.

Always use in a well-ventilated area and 
use gloves and safety glasses for protection; 
do not ingest.

For skin or eye contact, flush with cool 
water; if ingested, rinse mouth with water. 
In all cases, seek medical attention if 
necessary.

Injecting Sealant and Air

NOTICE

Do not operate the temporary tire repair kit 
compressor for more than 15 minutes. The 
compressor can overheat and become permanently 
damaged.

Until the sealant injection is complete, the pressure 
shown on the pressure gauge will appear higher than 
actual. After the sealant injection is complete the 
pressure will drop and then begin to rise again as the 
tire is inflated with air. This is normal. To accurately 
measure the air pressure using the gauge, turn the air 
compressor off only after the sealant injection is 
complete.

WARNING

Running the engine with the vehicle in an 
enclosed or even partly enclosed area can 
cause a rapid build-up of toxic carbon 
monoxide.

Breathing this colorless, odorless gas can 
cause unconsciousness and even death. 
Only run the engine to power the air 
compressor with the vehicle outdoors.
