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. 673

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.

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.

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.)

Follow all load limits and other 
loading guidelines in this manual.

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.

The engine is harder to start in cold weather and in 
thinner air found at altitudes above 8,000 feet (2,400 
meters).

When starting the engine in cold weather, turn off all 
electrical accessories such as the lights, climate 
control system, and rear defogger in order to reduce 
battery drain.

If you live in a region where winter is extremely cold, 
an engine block heater will improve starting and 
warming of the engine. Consult a dealer for details.

If the exhaust system sounds abnormal or you can 
smell exhaust gas inside the vehicle, have your vehicle 
checked by a dealer. There may be a problem with 
the engine or exhaust system.
