Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Continued

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 gauge.

U.S. models

1

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 overinflated in warmer 
weather.

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

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

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

You drive on snowy or slippery roads.

Tire chains

*

 are used.

The tire loses air pressure rapidly.

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on

TPMS Calibration

1

TPMS Calibration

TPMS cannot be calibrated if a compact spare tire

*

 is 

installed.
The calibration process requires approximately 30 
minutes of cumulative driving at speeds between 
31-62 mph (50-100 km/h).
During this period, if power mode is set to ON and 
the vehicle is not moved within 45 seconds, you may 
notice the low tire pressure indicator comes on 
briefly. This is normal and indicates that the 
calibration process is not yet complete.

If the tire chains

*

 are installed, remove them before 

calibrating the TPMS.

If the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator comes on even 
when the properly inflated specified regular tires are 
installed, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

We recommend that the tires be replaced with the 
same brand, model, and size as the originals. Ask a 
dealer for details.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required Federal Explanation

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.

U.S. models

497

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

*

Driving

Blind Spot Information System

*

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

The system activates when your vehicle is moving forward at about 20 mph (32 km/h) 
or above.

Alert zone range
A: Approx. 1.6 ~ 10 feet (0.5 ~ 3 meters) from vehicle side.
B: Approx. 10 feet (3 meters) from rear bumper.
C: Approx. 10 ~ 82 feet (3 ~ 25 meters) behind from rear bumper. (The faster the 
approaching vehicle, the further away it will be detected.)

The initially set alert zone is alert zone 1. Over time, after the vehicle has been driven 
on straight roads with traffic and roadside objects, the system will adapt and expand 
the alert zone (alert zone 1 and 2).

How the System works

1

Blind Spot Information System

*

Important Safety Reminder

Like all assistance systems, the blind spot information 
system has limitations. Always look in your mirrors, to 
either side of your vehicle, and behind you for other 
vehicles before changing lanes. Overreliance on the 
blind spot information system may result in a 
collision.

Have your vehicle checked by a dealer in the 
following situations:

The rear bumper or area around the radar sensors 
is strongly impacted.

The indicator does not come on even if a vehicle in 
the alert zone should have been detected.

The rear bumper or any system components need 
to be repaired.

If the rear bumper or any system components are 
repaired, the system will revert to alert zone 1 only 
until it is able to adapt and expand to alert zone 1 
and 2.

 is designed to alert you when the potential for a collision is determined, 

as well as assist in reducing speed, avoiding collisions, and reducing collision 
severity.

 (CMBS

TM

)

Important Safety Reminder

The CMBS

TM

 is designed to reduce the severity of an 

unavoidable collision. It does not prevent collisions 
nor stop the vehicle automatically. It is still your 
responsibility to operate the brake pedal and steering 
wheel appropriately according to the driving 
conditions.

The CMBS

TM

 may not activate or may not detect a 

vehicle in front of your vehicle under certain 
conditions:

When the CMBS

TM

 is activated, it will continue to 

operate even if the accelerator pedal is partially 
depressed. However, it will be canceled if the 
accelerator pedal is fully depressed.

When the CMBS

TM

 activates, the engine may stop 

automatically. Start the engine by normal operation if 
the engine stops.

How the system works

The CMBS

TM

 will be canceled when your vehicle stops or the system determines 

there no longer is the potential for a collision.
The CMBS

TM

 may also be canceled when a driver operates the steering wheel and 

the brake or accelerator pedal to avoid a collision.

1

How the system works

The camera in the CMBS

TM

 is also designed to detect 

pedestrians.
However, this pedestrian detection feature may not 
activate or may not detect a pedestrian in front of 
your vehicle under certain conditions.
Refer to the ones indicating the pedestrian detection 
limitations from the list.

CMBS

TM

 Conditions and Limitations

 P. 510

A front wide view camera is located 
behind the rearview mirror.

The system starts monitoring the roadway ahead when your vehicle speed is about 
3 mph (5 km/h) or above and will search for a vehicle, pedestrian, or moving bicycle 
in front of you.

The CMBS

TM

 activates when:

The speed difference between your vehicle and a vehicle, pedestrian, or moving 
bicycle detected in front of you becomes about 3 mph (5 km/h) and over with a 
chance of a collision.

Your vehicle drives at about 18 mph (30 km/h) or less and there is a chance of in 
frontal collision with a detected oncoming vehicle when you turn left at an 
intersection.

Your vehicle speed is about 62 mph (100 km/h) or less and the system determines 
there is a chance of a collision with:

- An oncoming or stationary vehicle detected in front of you.
- A pedestrian or moving bicycle detected in front of you.

Using sonar sensors located on the front and rear bumpers, and the front grille, this 
system can detect if there is danger of a potential collision with a wall or other 
obstacle during normal driving or when the accelerator pedal is depressed with too 
much force. The system then assists in avoiding collisions and reducing damage 
from impact through assistive braking and/or assistive driving power suppression.

WARNING

The Low Speed Braking Control System 
cannot avoid all collisions and may not 
reduce damage in each situation where the 
accelerator is mistakenly or aggressively 
pressed. Overreliance on the system may
