NEVER drink or take drugs and
drive.
Drinking or taking drugs and driv-
ing is dangerous and may result
in an accident and SERIOUS
INJURY or DEATH.
Drunk driving is the number
one contributor to the highway
death toll each year. Even a
small amount of alcohol will
affect your reflexes, percep-
tions and judgment. Just one
drink can reduce your ability to
respond to changing conditions
and emergencies and your reac-
tion time gets worse with each
additional drink.
Driving while under the influ-
ence of drugs is as dangerous
as or more dangerous than driv-
ing under the influence of alco-
hol.

WARNING  

You are much more likely to have
a serious accident if you drink or
take drugs and drive. If you are
drinking or taking drugs, don't
drive. Do not ride with a driver
who has been drinking or taking
drugs. Choose a designated driv-
er or call a taxi.

To reduce the risk of SERIOUS
INJURY or DEATH, take the fol-
lowing precautions:

ALWAYS wear your seat belt.
All passengers must be prop-
erly belted whenever the vehi-
cle is moving. For more infor-
mation, refer to "Seat Belts" in
chapter 2.

Always drive defensively.
Assume other drivers or pedes-
trians may be careless and
make mistakes.

Stay focused on the task of
driving. Driver distraction can
cause accidents.

Leave plenty of space between
you and the vehicle in front of
you.

WARNING

Driving your vehicle

Good Driving Practices

• Never shift to P (Park) or N

(Neutral) to any other position with
the accelerator pedal depressed.

• Never shift to P (Park) when the

vehicle is in motion.
Be sure the vehicle is completely
stopped before you attempt to shift
into R (Reverse) or D (Drive).

• Do not shift to N (Neutral) when

driving. Doing so may result in an
accident.

• Do not drive with your foot resting

on the brake pedal. Even light, but
consistent pedal pressure can
result in the brakes overheating,
brake wear and possibly even
brake failure.

• Always apply the parking brake

when leaving the vehicle. Do not
depend on placing the gear in P
(Park) to keep the vehicle from
moving.

• Exercise extreme caution when

driving on a slippery surface. Be
especially careful when braking,
accelerating or shifting gears. On a
slippery surface, an abrupt change
in vehicle speed can cause the
drive wheels to lose traction and
may cause loss of vehicle control
resulting in an accident

• Optimum vehicle performance and

economy is obtained by smoothly
depressing and releasing the
accelerator.

To reduce the risk of SERIOUS
INJURY or DEATH:

ALWAYS wear your seat belt.
In a collision, an unbelted
occupant is significantly more
likely to be seriously injured
or killed than a properly belt-
ed occupant.

Avoid high speeds when cor-
nering or turning.

Do not make quick steering
wheel movements, such as
sharp lane changes or fast,
sharp turns.

WARNING  

The risk of rollover is greatly
increased if you lose control
of your vehicle at highway
speeds.

Loss of control often occurs if
two or more wheels drop off
the roadway and the driver
over steers to reenter the
roadway.

In the event your vehicle
leaves the roadway, do not
steer sharply. Instead, slow
down before pulling back into
the travel lanes.

HYUNDAI recommends you
follow all posted speed limits.

When driving uphill or down-
hill, always shift to D (Drive)
for driving forward or shift to
R (Reverse) for driving rear-
wards.

After selecting D

(Drive) or R (Reverse), check
the gear position indicated on
the cluster before driving. If
the vehicle moves in the
opposite direction of the
selected gear, the engine may
turn off and a serious acci-
dent might occur due to
degraded brake performance.

The paddle shifter is used to adjust
the regenerative braking rate from 0
to 3 during decelerating or braking.
• Left side (

): Increases regener-

ative braking and deceleration.

• Right side (

):

Decreases

regenerative braking and decelera-
tion.

• Pull and hold the left side paddle

shifter to change to 0.

• Pull and hold the left side paddle

shifter to change to 3.

Information 

The paddle shifter does not operate
when:

• Both Paddle shifters are pulled at

the same time. 

• The Smart Cruise Control system is

activated.

• The vehicle is shifted to P (Park), R

(Reverse) and N (Neutral). 

If the battery is fully charged when
descending down a long or steep
hill, the regenerative braking is
not working even though operat-
ing the paddle shifter. In this case,
depress the brake pedal to brake
the vehicle. This is normal and
does not indicate a problem with
your paddle shifter and brakes.

The selected regenerative braking
rate is displayed on the instrument
cluster.

What Does Regenerative
Braking Do?

It uses the electric motor when
decelerating or braking which trans-
forms vehicle motion (kinetic energy)
to electrical energy to charge the
high voltage batteries.

Power Brakes

Your vehicle has power-assisted
brakes that adjust automatically
through normal usage.
If the power is not supplied such as
battery discharge, the power assist
for the brakes will not work. You can
still stop your vehicle by applying
greater force to the brake pedal than
typical. The stopping distance, how-
ever, will be longer than with power
brakes.
Do not pump the brake pedal when
the power assist has been interrupt-
ed.

Information 

• When the brake pedal is depressed

under certain driving conditions
or weather conditions, you may
temporarily hear a noise. This is
normal and does not indicate a
problem with your brakes.

• While driving on a road with deic-

ing chemicals, brake noise or abnor-
mal tire wear may occur due to
deicing chemicals. In a safe traffic
condition, additionally apply the
brakes to remove deicing chemicals
on the brake discs and pads.

Take the following precautions:

Do not drive with your foot
resting on the brake pedal.
This will create abnormal high
brake temperatures, exces-
sive brake lining and pad
wear, and increased stopping
distances.

When descending down a
long or steep hill, use the pad-
dle shifter (left side lever) to
increase regenerative braking
control in order to control
your speed without using the
brake pedal excessively.
Applying the brakes continu-
ously will cause the brakes to
overheat and could result in a
temporary loss of braking per-
formance.

Wet brakes may impair the
vehicle's ability to safely slow
down; the vehicle may also
pull to one side when the
brakes are applied. Applying
the brakes lightly will indicate
whether they have been
affected in this way. Always
test your brakes in this fash-
ion after driving through deep
water. To dry the brakes, light-
ly tap the brake pedal to heat
up the brakes while maintain-
ing a safe forward speed until
brake performance returns to
normal. Avoid driving at high
speeds until the brakes func-
tion correctly.

WARNING  

5-20

Driving your vehicle

• Do not continue depressing the

brake pedal if the "

" indica-

tor is OFF. The battery may be
discharged.

• Noise and vibration generated

during braking is normal.

• Under normal operation, electric

brake pump noise and motor
vibration may occur temporarily
in below cases.
- When the pedal is depressed

suddenly.

- When the pedal is repeatedly

depressed in short intervals.

- When the ABS function is acti-

vated while braking.

Disc Brake Wear Indicator

When your brake pads are worn and
new pads are required, you will hear
a high pitched warning sound from
your front or rear brakes. You may
hear this sound come and go or it
may occur whenever you depress
the brake pedal.

To avoid costly brake repairs, do
not continue to drive with worn
brake pads.

Information 

Always replace brake pads as com-
plete front or rear axle sets.

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)

ABS is an electronic braking system
that helps prevent a braking skid.
ABS allows the driver to steer and
brake at the same time.

An Anti-Lock Braking System
(ABS) or an Electronic Stability
Control (ESC) system will not
prevent accidents due to
improper or dangerous driving
maneuvers. Even though vehi-
cle control is improved during
emergency braking,

always

maintain a safe distance
between you and objects ahead
of you. Vehicle speeds should
always be reduced during
extreme road conditions. The
braking distance for cars
equipped with ABS or ESC may
be longer than for those without
these systems in the following
road conditions.
Drive your vehicle at reduced
speeds during the following
conditions:

Rough, gravel or snow-cov-
ered roads.

WARNING  

On roads where the road sur-
face is pitted or has different
surface height.

Tire chains are installed on
your vehicle.

The safety features of an ABS
or ESC equipped vehicle should
not be tested by high speed
driving or cornering. This could
endanger the safety of yourself
or others.

Using ABS  

To obtain the maximum benefit from
your ABS in an emergency situation,
do not attempt to modulate your
brake pressure and do not try to
pump your brakes. Depress your
brake pedal as hard as possible.
When you apply your brakes under
conditions which may lock the
wheels, you may hear sounds from
the brakes, or feel a corresponding
sensation in the brake pedal. This is
normal and it means your ABS is
active.
ABS does not reduce the time or dis-
tance it takes to stop the vehicle.
Always maintain a safe distance from
the vehicle in front of you.
ABS will not prevent a skid that
results from sudden changes in
direction, such as trying to take a
corner too fast or making a sudden
lane change. Always drive at a safe
speed for the road and weather con-
ditions.

ABS cannot prevent a loss of stabili-
ty. Always steer moderately when
braking hard. Severe or sharp steer-
ing wheel movement can still cause
your vehicle to veer into oncoming
traffic or off the road.
On loose or uneven road surfaces,
operation of the anti-lock brake sys-
tem may result in a longer stopping
distance than for vehicles equipped
with a conventional brake system.
The ABS warning light (

) will stay

on for several seconds after the
POWER button is in the ON position.
During that time, the ABS will go
through self-diagnosis and the light
will go off if everything is normal. If
the light stays on, you may have a
problem with your ABS. Contact an
authorized HYUNDAI dealer as soon
as possible.

If the ABS warning light (

) is

on and stays on, you may have
a problem with the ABS. Your
power brakes will work normal-
ly. To reduce the risk of serious
injury or death, contact your
HYUNDAI dealer as soon as
possible.

WARNING  

5-32

Driving your vehicle

When you drive on a road having
poor traction, such as an icy road,
and apply your brakes continu-
ously, the ABS will be active con-
tinuously and the ABS warning
light (

) may illuminate. Pull

your car over to a safe place and
turn the vehicle off.
Restart the vehicle. If the ABS
warning light is off, then your ABS
system is normal.
Otherwise, you may have a prob-
lem with your ABS system.
Contact an authorized HYUNDAI
dealer as soon as possible.

Information 

When you jump start your vehicle
because of a drained battery, the ABS
warning light (

) may turn on at the

same time. This happens because of
the low battery voltage. It does not
mean your ABS is malfunctioning.
Have the battery recharged before
driving the vehicle.

Electronic Stability Control
(ESC)

The Electronic Stability Control
(ESC) system helps to stabilize the
vehicle during cornering maneuvers.
ESC checks where you are steering
and where the vehicle is actually
going. ESC applies braking pressure
to any one of the vehicle's brakes
and intervenes in the electric vehicle
control system to assist the driver
with keeping the vehicle on the
intended path. It is not a substitute
for safe driving practices. Always
adjust your speed and driving to the
road conditions.

i

NOTICE

OFE058030

Never drive too fast for the road
conditions or too quickly when
cornering. The ESC system will
not prevent accidents.
Excessive speed in turns,
abrupt maneuvers,

and

hydroplaning on wet surfaces
can result in severe accidents.

ESC operation  

ESC ON condition

When the POWER button is in the
ON position, the ESC and the ESC
OFF indicator lights illuminate for
approximately three seconds. After
both lights go off, the ESC is
enabled.

When operating

When the ESC is in opera-
tion, the ESC indicator light
blinks:

• When you apply your brakes under

conditions which may lock the
wheels, you may hear sounds from
the brakes, or feel a corresponding
sensation in the brake pedal. This is
normal and it means your ESC is
active.

• When the ESC activates, the vehi-

cle may not respond to the acceler-
ator as it does under routine condi-
tions.

• If the Smart Cruise Control was in

use when the ESC activates, the
Smart Cruise Control automatically
disengages. The Smart Cruise
Control can be reengaged when the
road conditions allow.

See "Smart

cruise control with stop & go sys-
tem" later in this chapter.

ESC OFF condition

To cancel ESC operation :

• State 1

Press the ESC OFF button briefly.
The ESC OFF indicator light and
message "Traction Control disabled"
will illuminate. In this state, the trac-
tion control function of ESC is dis-
abled, but the brake control function
of ESC still operates.
