Introduction
Fuel Requirements
Your new vehicle is designed to obtain maximum performance with UNLEADED FUEL, as
well as minimize exhaust emissions and spark plug fouling.
Your new vehicle is designed to perform optimally using unleaded fuel having an octane
number ((R+M)/2) of 87 (Research Octane Number 91) or higher. (Do not use methanol
blended fuels)
NOTICE
To prevent damage to the engine and engine components, never add any fuel system
cleaning agents to the fuel tank other than what has been specified.
Consult an authorized HYUNDAI dealer for additional information.
WARNING
• Do not "top off" after the nozzle automatically shuts off when refueling.
• Always check that the fuel cap is installed securely to prevent fuel spillage in the event
of an accident.
Gasoline containing alcohol or methanol
Gasohol, a mixture of gasoline and ethanol (also known as grain alcohol) are being
marketed along with or instead of leaded or unleaded gasoline. For example, "E15" is a
gasohol comprised of 15 % ethanol and 85 % gasoline.
Do not use gasohol containing more than 15 % ethanol, and do not use gasoline or
gasohol containing any methanol. Either of these fuels may cause drivability problems
and damage to the fuel system, engine control system and emission control system.
Discontinue using gasohol of any kind if drivability problems occur.
"E85" fuel is an alternative fuel comprised of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline,
and is manufactured exclusively for use in Flexible Fuel Vehicles. "E85" is not compatible
with your vehicle. Use of "E85" may result in poor engine performance and damage to
your vehicle's engine and fuel system. Do not use fuel with an ethanol content exceeding
15 percent.
NOTICE
To prevent damage to your vehicle's engine and fuel system:
• Never use gasohol which contains methanol.
• Never use gasohol containing more than 15 % ethanol.
• Never use leaded fuel or leaded gasohol.
• Never use "E85" fuel.
Your New Vehicle Limited Warranty does not cover damage to the fuel system or any
performance problems caused by the use of "E85" fuel.

Using Fuel Additives (except Detergent Fuel Additives)
Using fuel additives such as:
• Silicone fuel additive
• Ferrocene (iron-based) fuel additive
• Other metallic-based fuel additives
may result in cylinder misfire, poor acceleration, engine stalling, damage to the catalyst,
or abnormal corrosion, and may cause damage to the engine resulting in a reduction in
the overall life of the powertrain.
The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) may illuminate.
NOTICE
Damage to the fuel system or performance problem caused by the use of these fuels or
fuel additives may not be covered by your New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Gasoline containing MMT
Some gasoline contains harmful manganese-based fuel additives such as MMT
(Methylcyclopentadienyl Manganese Tricarbonyl).
Do not use gasoline containing MMT.
This type of fuel can reduce vehicle performance and affect your emission control
system.
The malfunction indicator lamp on the cluster may come on.
Detergent Fuel Additives
Use good quality gasolines treated with detergent additives such as TOP TIER Detergent
Gasoline, which help prevent deposit formation in the engine. These gasolines will help
the engine run cleaner and enhance performance of the Emission Control System. For
more information on TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline, please go to the website
For customers who do not use TOP Tier Detergent Gasoline regularly, and have problems
starting or the engine does not run smoothly, detergent-based fuel additives that you can
purchase separately may be added to the gasoline. If TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is not
available, one bottle of additive added to the fuel tank according to the maintenance
schedule is recommended (refer to the "Scheduled Maintenance Services" section in
chapter 9).
Additives are available from your authorized HYUNDAI dealer along with information on
how to use them. Do not mix other additives.
Operation in foreign countries
If you are going to drive your vehicle in another country, be sure to:
• Observe all regulations regarding registration and insurance.
• Determine that acceptable fuel is available.

Introduction
Vehicle Modifications
• This vehicle should not be modified. Modification of your vehicle could affect its
performance, safety or durability and may even violate governmental safety and
emissions regulations.
• In addition, damage or performance problems resulting from any modification may not
be covered under warranty.
• If you use unauthorized electronic devices, it may cause the vehicle to operate
abnormally, wire damage, battery discharge and fire. For your safety, do not use
unauthorized electronic devices.
NOTICE
Some vehicle interior sounds (including welcome sound, navigation alerts, or warning
sounds) may be generated from the interior speakers and amplifier. Do not replace these
components with anything other than the original HYUNDAI factory parts. Any
unauthorized product may cause a malfunction of the vehicle interior sounds that may
affect the intended operation of the vehicle.

Vehicle Break-in Process
By following a few simple precautions for the first 600 mi. (1,000 km), you may add to the
performance, economy, and life of your vehicle.
• Do not race the engine.
• While driving, keep your engine speed (RPM, or revolutions per minute) between 2,000
RPM and 4,000 RPM.
• Do not maintain a single speed for long periods of time, either fast or slow. Varying
engine speed is needed to properly break-in the engine.
• Avoid hard stops, except in emergencies, to allow the brakes to seat properly.
• Fuel economy and engine performance may vary depending on vehicle break-in
process and be stabilized after 4,000 mi. (6,000 km). New engines may consume more
oil during the vehicle break-in period.
NOTICE

Introduction
Vehicle Data Collection And Event Data Recorders
This vehicle is equipped with an event data recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an EDR
is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an airbag deployment
or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a vehicle's systems
performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety
systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is
designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating;
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened;
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal; and,
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which
crashes and injuries occur. NOTE: EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a
non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving
conditions and no personal data (for example, name, gender, age, and crash location) are
recorded. However, other parties, such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data
with the type of personally identifying data routinely acquired during a crash
investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the
vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties that
have the special equipment, such as law enforcement, can read the information if they
have access to the vehicle or the EDR.

NOTICE
• It is permissible to add 3 psi (20 kPa) to the standard tire pressure specification if colder
temperatures are expected soon.
Tires typically lose 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12 °F (7 °C) temperature drop. If extreme
temperature variations are expected, recheck your tire pressure as necessary to keep
them properly inflated.
• Tire inflation pressures may differ depending on changes in elevation (about 2.4 psi (10
kPa) for every mile (or kilometer) elevation change). If driving in areas of higher or
lower elevation, be sure to check and adjust for proper tire inflation.
• Do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure, as found on the sidewall of the tire(s).
CAUTION
When replacing tires, ALWAYS use the same size, type, brand, construction, and tread
pattern supplied with the vehicle. If not, it can damage the related parts or make it work
irregularly.

Recommended SAE viscosity number
NOTICE
• Always be sure to clean the area around any filler plug, drain plug, or dipstick before
checking or draining any lubricant. This is especially important in dusty or sandy areas
and when the vehicle is used on unpaved roads. Cleaning the plug and dipstick areas
will prevent dirt and grit from entering the engine and other mechanisms that could be
damaged.
• Never add any additives to the engine oil. Engine oil additives can change the
properties of engine oil and may cause serious engine failure.
Engine oil viscosity (thickness) has an effect on fuel economy and cold weather operating
(engine start and engine oil flow ability). Typically, lower viscosity engine oils can provide
better fuel economy and cold weather performance, however, higher viscosity engine
oils are required for satisfactory lubrication in hot weather. Using oils of any viscosity
other than those recommended could result in engine damage.
When choosing an oil, consider the range of temperature your vehicle will be operated in
before the next oil change. Proceed to select the recommended oil viscosity from the
chart.

Seats & Safety System
Your vehicle is equipped with an Advanced Supplemental Airbag System for the driver's
and front passenger's seats.
The front airbags are designed to supplement the three-point seat belts. For these
airbags to provide protection, seat belts must be properly worn at all times when driving.
You can be severely injured or killed in an accident if you are not wearing a seat belt.
Airbags are built into the vehicle as a supplementary system. They are not intended as a
replacement for wearing 3-point seat belts. Also, airbags are not designed to deploy in
every collision. In some accidents, the seat belts are the only restraint protecting you.
WARNING
AIRBAG SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• Always use seat belts and Child Restraint Systems - every trip, every time, everyone!
Even with airbags, you can be seriously injured or killed in a collision if you are
improperly belted or not wearing your seat belt when the airbag inflates.
• Never place a child in any Child Restraint System or booster seat in the front passenger
seat, unless the airbag is deactivated.
• An inflating airbag could forcefully strike the infant or child causing serious or fatal
injuries.
• ABC - Always Buckle Children under age 13 in the back seat. It is the safest place for
children of any age to ride. If a child age 13 or older must be seated in the front seat, he
or she must be properly belted and the seat should be moved as far back as possible.
• Make sure that all occupants sit upright with the seatback in an upright position,
centered on the seat cushion with their seat belt on, legs comfortably extended, and
their feet on the floor until the vehicle is parked and the vehicle is turned off. If an
occupant is out of position during an accident, the rapidly deploying airbag may
forcefully contact the occupant causing serious or fatal injuries.
• Never sit or lean unnecessarily close to the airbags or lean against the door or center
console.
• Move your seat as far back as possible from front airbags, while still maintaining
control of the vehicle. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) recommends that drivers allow at least 10 inches (25 cm) between the center
of the steering wheel and the chest.

• Airbags inflate in the event of certain

• There is no single speed at which the
airbags will inflate. Generally, airbags
are designed to inflate based upon the
severity of a collision and its direction.
Airbag deployment also depends on a
number of other factors including
vehicle speed, angles of impact and the
density and stiffness of the vehicles or
objects which your vehicle impacts

This speed of inflation reduces the risk
of serious or life-threatening injuries
and is thus a necessary part of airbag
design.
However, the rapid airbag inflation may
also cause injuries that include facial
abrasions, bruises, and broken bones
because the inflation speed also causes
the airbags to expand with great force.
• There are even circumstances under
which contact with the airbag may
cause fatal injuries, especially when the
occupant is positioned excessively
close to the airbag.
You can take steps to reduce the risk of
being injured by an inflating airbag. The
greatest risk is sitting too close to the
airbag. An airbag needs about 10 inches
(25 cm) of space to inflate. NHTSA
recommends that drivers allow at least 10
inches (25 cm) between the center of the

Why didn't my airbag go off in
a collision?
There are certain types of accidents in
which the airbag would not deploy
including rear impacts and second or
third collisions in multiple impact
accidents, as well as low speed impacts.
Damage to the vehicle indicates a
collision energy absorption, and is not an
indicator of whether or not an airbag
should have inflated.
Airbag collision sensors
WARNING
To reduce the risk of an airbag deploying
unexpectedly and causing serious injury
or death:
• Do not hit or allow any objects to
impact the locations where airbags or
sensors are installed.
• Do not perform maintenance on or
around the airbag sensors. If the
location or angle of the sensors is
changed, the airbags may deploy when
they should not or may not deploy.
• Do not install bumper guards with non
genuine Hyundai or non-equivalent
parts. It may adversely affect the
collision and airbag deployment
performance.
• Press the Engine Start/Stop button to
the OFF or ACC position and wait for 3
minutes before the vehicle is towed to
prevent unintended airbag
deployment.
• Have all airbag repairs conducted by an
authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Information
The side and curtain airbags may inflate in
a rollover situation, when detected by the
rollover sensor.
2C_AirbagNonOperatingConditionSidlingCrash
In an angled collision, the force of impact
may direct the occupants in a direction
where the airbags would not be able to
provide any additional benefit, and thus
the sensors may not deploy any airbags.
2C_AirbagNonOperatingConditionPollCrash
Airbags may not inflate if the vehicle
collides with objects such as utility poles
or trees, where the point of impact is
concentrated and the collision energy is
absorbed by the vehicle structure.
2C_AirbagNonOperatingConditionTruckCrash
Just before impact, drivers often brake
heavily. Such heavy braking lowers the
front portion of the vehicle causing it to
"nosedive". This is particularly important
when the vehicle in front has a higher
