Owner's Manual (Download PDF, 3.6M)
Foreword
GUID-56613839-C550-4854-944E-A46CE238997E
Your INFINITI represents a new way of
thinking about vehicle design. It integrates
advanced engineering and superior craftsmanship with a simple, refined aesthetic
sensitivity associated with traditional Japanese culture.
The result is a different notion of luxury
and beauty. The car itself is important, but
so is the sense of harmony that the vehicle
evokes in its driver, and the sense of
satisfaction you feel with the INFINITI —
from the way it looks and drives to the high
level of retailer service.
To ensure that you enjoy your INFINITI to
the fullest, we encourage you to read this
Owner’s Manual immediately. It explains
all of the features, controls and performance characteristics of your INFINITI; it
also provides important instructions and
safety information.
A separate Warranty Information Booklet
is included in your Owner’s literature
portfolio. The INFINITI Service and Maintenance Guide explains details about
maintaining and servicing your vehicle.
Always carry it with you when you take
your vehicle to an INFINITI retailer. The
Warranty Information Booklet contents
provide complete information about all
warranties covering this vehicle, the requirements to keep the warranties in effect
as well as the INFINITI Roadside Assistance program.
Additionally, a separate Customer Care
and Lemon Law Information Booklet will
explain how to resolve any concerns you
may have with your vehicle, as well as
clarify your rights under your state’s
lemon law.
In addition to factory installed options,
your vehicle may also be equipped with
additional accessories installed by INFINITI
or by your INFINITI retailer prior to delivery.
It is important that you familiarize yourself
with all disclosures, warnings, cautions
and instructions concerning proper use of
such accessories prior to operating the
vehicle and/or accessory. See an INFINITI
retailer for details concerning the particular accessories with which your vehicle is
equipped.

If you are wearing your seat belt properly
adjusted, and you are sitting upright and
well back in your seat with both feet on the
floor, your chances of being injured or
killed in an accident and/or the severity of
injury may be greatly reduced. INFINITI
strongly encourages you and all of your
passengers to buckle up every time you
drive, even if your seating position includes a supplemental air bag.
Most U.S. states and Canadian provinces
or territories specify that seat belts be
worn at all times when a vehicle is being
driven.

WARNING
.
1-12
Do not wear the seat belt inside out or
twisted. Doing so may reduce its effectiveness.
.
Do not allow more than one person to
use the same seat belt.
.
Never carry more people in the vehicle
than there are seat belts.
.
If the seat belt warning light glows
continuously while the ignition is turned
ON with all doors closed and all seat
belts fastened, it may indicate a malfunction in the system. Have the system
checked by an INFINITI retailer.
.
No changes should be made to the seat
belt system. For example, do not modify
the seat belt, add material or install
devices that may change the seat belt
routing or tension. Doing so may affect
the operation of the seat belt system.
Modifying or tampering with the seat
belt system may result in serious personal injury.
.
The seat belt should be properly adjusted to a snug fit. Failure to do so may
reduce the effectiveness of the entire
restraint system and increase the chance
or severity of injury in an accident.
Serious injury or death can occur if the
seat belt is not worn properly.
.
Always route the shoulder belt over your
shoulder and across your chest. Never
put the belt behind your back, under
your arm or across your neck. The belt
should be away from your face and neck,
but not falling off your shoulder.
.
Position the lap belt as low and snug as
possible AROUND THE HIPS, NOT THE
WAIST. A lap belt worn too high could
increase the risk of internal injuries in an
accident.
.
Be sure the seat belt tongue is securely
fastened to the proper buckle.
Once a seat belt pretensioner has
activated, it cannot be reused and must
be replaced together with the retractor.

2. Slowly pull the seat belt out of the
retractor and insert the tongue into the
buckle until you hear and feel the latch
engage.
. The retractor is designed to lock
during a sudden stop or on impact.
A slow pulling motion permits the
belt to move, and allows you some
freedom of movement in the seat.
. If the seat belt cannot be pulled
from its fully retracted position,
firmly pull the belt and release it.
Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system
The ELR locks the seat belt when the
vehicle slows down rapidly or during
impacts.
The Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR)

3. Position the lap belt portion low and
snug on the hips as shown.
4. Pull the shoulder belt portion toward
the retractor to take up extra slack. Be
sure the shoulder belt is routed over
your shoulder and across your chest.
The three-point type seat belts have two
modes of operation:
. Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR)
. Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR)
The Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR)
mode allows the seat belt to extend and
retract to allow the driver and passengers
some freedom of movement in the seat.
When the ALR mode is activated the seat
belt cannot be extended again until the
seat belt tongue is detached from the
buckle and fully retracted. The seat belt
returns to the ELR mode after the seat belt
fully retracts. For additional information,
see “Child restraints” (P.1-19).
The ALR mode should be used only for
child restraint installation. During normal
seat belt use by an occupant, the ALR
mode should not be activated. If it is
activated it may cause uncomfortable seat
belt tension.
WARNING
When fastening the seat belts, be certain
that seatbacks are completely secured in
the latched position. If they are not completely secured, passengers may be injured

MAINTENANCE
. To clean the seat belt webbing, apply a
mild soap solution or any solution
recommended for cleaning upholstery
or carpets. Then, wipe with a cloth and
allow the seat belts to dry in the shade.
Do not allow the seat belts to retract
until they are completely dry.
. If dirt builds up in the shoulder belt
guide of the seat belt anchors, the seat
belts may retract slowly. Wipe the
shoulder belt guide with a clean, dry
cloth.
. Periodically check to see that the seat
belt and the metal components such as
buckles, tongues, retractors, flexible
wires and anchors work properly. If
loose parts, deterioration, cuts or other
damage on the webbing is found, the
entire seat belt assembly should be
replaced.
WARNING
Do not allow children to play with the seat
belts. Most seating positions are equipped
with Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR)
mode seat belts. If the seat belt becomes
wrapped around a child’s neck with the ALR
mode activated, the child can be seriously
injured or killed if the seat belt retracts and
becomes tight. This can occur even if the
vehicle is parked. Unbuckle the seat belt to
release the child. If the seat belt can not be
unbuckled or is already unbuckled, release
the child by cutting the seat belt with a
suitable tool (such as a knife or scissors) to
release the seat belt.
Children need adults to help protect them.
They need to be properly restrained.
In addition to the general information in
this manual, child safety information is
available from many other sources, including doctors, teachers, government traffic
safety offices, and community organizations. Every child is different, so be sure to
learn the best way to transport your child.
There are three basic types of child
restraint systems:
Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system
1-17
. Rear-facing child restraint
. Forward-facing child restraint
. Booster seat
The proper restraint depends on the child’s
size. Generally, infants up to about 1 year
and less than 20 lbs (9 kg) should be
placed in rear-facing child restraints. Forward-facing child restraints are available
for children who outgrow rear-facing child
restraints and are at least 1 year old.
Booster seats are used to help position a
vehicle lap/shoulder belt on a child who
can no longer use a forward-facing child
restraint.
WARNING
Infants and children need special protection.
The vehicle’s seat belts may not fit them
properly. The shoulder belt may come too
close to the face or neck. The lap belt may
not fit over their small hip bones. In an
accident, an improperly fitting seat belt
could cause serious or fatal injury. Always
use appropriate child restraints.
All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or
territories require the use of approved
child restraints for infants and small
1-18
children. See “Child restraints” (P.1-19).
SMALL CHILDREN
GUID-6720EEDF-EB1F-481B-833F-D66348297EC8
A child restraint may be secured in the
vehicle by using either the lower anchors
or the vehicle seat belt. See “Child
restraints” (P.1-19) for more information.
Children that are over 1 year old and weigh
at least 20 lbs (9 kg) should remain in a
rear-facing child restraint as long as
possible up to the height or weight limit
of the child restraint. Forward-facing child
restraints are available for children who
outgrow rear facing child restraints and are
at least 1 year old. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for minimum and maximum weight and height
recommendations. INFINITI recommends
that small children be placed in child
restraints that comply with Federal Motor
Vehicle Safety Standards or Canadian
Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. You
should choose a child restraint that fits
your vehicle and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation and
use.
INFINITI recommends that all pre-teens
and children be restrained in the rear seat.
Studies show that children are safer when
properly restrained in the rear seat than in
the front seat.
This is especially important because your
vehicle has a supplemental restraint system (Air bag system) for the front passenger. See “Supplemental restraint system”
(P.1-35).
INFANTS

obtain proper seat belt fit.
INFINITI recommends that a child be placed
in a commercially available booster seat if
the shoulder belt fits close to the face or
neck or if the lap portion of the seat belt
goes across the abdomen. The booster seat
should raise the child so that the shoulder
belt is properly positioned across the top,
middle portion of the shoulder and the lap
belt is low on the hips. A booster seat can
only be used in seating positions that have
a three-point type seat belt. The booster
seat should fit the vehicle seat and have a
label certifying that it complies with
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or
Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
Once the child has grown so the shoulder
belt is no longer on or near the face and
neck, use the shoulder belt without the
booster seat.
WARNING
Infants and small children should always
be placed in an appropriate child restraint while riding in the vehicle. A child
restraint that requires a top tether strap
for installation should not be used in
this vehicle. Failure to use a child
restraint can result in serious injury or
death.

must install a forward-facing child
restraint in the front seat, see “Forward-facing child restraint installation using the seat belts” (P.1-28).
— Even with the INFINITI Advanced Air
Bag System, never install a rearfacing child restraint in the front
seat. An inflating air bag could
seriously injure or kill a child. A
rear-facing child restraint must only
be used in the rear seat.
— Be sure to purchase a child restraint
that will fit the child and vehicle.
Some child restraints may not fit
properly in your vehicle.
— Child restraint anchor points are
designed to withstand loads from
child restraints that are properly
fitted.
— Never use the anchor points for
adult seat belts or harnesses.

system compatible child restraints. These
lower anchors may also be referred to as
the ISOFIX or ISOFIX compatible system.
With these lower anchors, you do not have
to use a vehicle seat belt to secure the
child restraint.
— Inspect the lower anchors by inserting your fingers into the lower
anchor area. Feel to make sure there
are no obstructions over the anchors
such as seat belt webbing or seat
cushion material. The child restraint
will not be secured properly if the
lower anchors are obstructed.

The driver supplemental front-impact air
bag is located in the center of the steering
wheel. The front passenger supplemental
front-impact air bag is mounted in the
instrument panel above the glove box. The
front air bags are designed to inflate in
higher severity frontal collisions, although
they may inflate if the forces in another
type of collision are similar to those of a
higher severity frontal impact. They may
not inflate in certain frontal collisions.
Vehicle damage (or lack of it) is not always
an indication of proper front air bag
operation.
The INFINITI Advanced Air Bag System has
dual stage air bag inflators. The system
monitors information from the crash zone
sensor, the Air bag Control Unit (ACU), seat
belt buckle switches and the occupant
classification sensor (pattern sensor). Inflator operation is based on the severity of
a collision and seat belt usage for the
driver. For the front passenger, the occupant classification sensor is also monitored. Based on information from the
sensors, only one front air bag may inflate
in a crash, depending on the crash severity
and whether the front occupants are belted
or unbelted. Additionally, the front passenger air bag may be automatically turned
OFF under some conditions, depending on
the information provided by the occupant
classification sensor. If the front passenger
air bag is OFF, the passenger air bag status
light will be illuminated (if the seat is
unoccupied, the light will not be illuminated, but the air bag will be off). (See
“Front passenger air bag and status light”
(P.1-42) for further details.) One front air
bag inflating does not indicate improper
performance of the system.
If you have any questions about your air
bag system, contact an INFINITI retailer. If
you are considering modification of your
vehicle due to a disability, you may also
contact INFINITI. Contact information is
contained in the front of this Owner’s
Manual.
close to, or is against, the air bag module
during inflation.
When a front air bag inflates, a fairly loud
noise may be heard, followed by release of
smoke. This smoke is not harmful and does
not indicate a fire. Care should be taken
not to inhale it, as it may cause irritation
and choking. Those with a history of a
breathing condition should get fresh air
promptly.
The supplemental front air bags operate
only when the ignition switch is in the ON
position.
Front air bags, along with the use of seat
belts, help to cushion the impact force on
the head and chest of the front occupants.
They can help save lives and reduce
serious injuries. However, an inflating front
air bag may cause facial abrasions or other
injuries. Front air bags do not provide
restraint to the lower body.
The front air bags deflate quickly after a
collision.
After pushing the ignition switch to the ON
position, the supplemental air bag warning light illuminates. The supplemental air
bag warning light will turn off after about
7 seconds if the system is operational.
Even with INFINITI Advanced Air Bags, seat
belts should be correctly worn and the
driver and passenger seated upright as far
as practical away from the steering wheel
or instrument panel. The front air bags
inflate quickly in order to help protect the
front occupants. Because of this, the force
of the front air bag inflating can increase

cushion and is designed to detect an
occupant and objects on the seat. For
example, if a child is in the front passenger
seat, the Advanced Air Bag System is
designed to turn the passenger air bag
OFF in accordance with the regulations.
Also, if a child restraint of the type
specified in the regulations is on the seat,
the occupant classification sensor can
detect it and cause the air bag to turn OFF.
Front passenger seat adult occupants who
are properly seated and using the seat belt
as outlined in this manual should not
cause the passenger air bag to be automatically turned OFF. For small adults it
may be turned OFF, however, if the
occupant does not sit in the seat properly
(for example, by not sitting upright, by
sitting on an edge of the seat, or by
otherwise being out of position), this could
cause the sensor to turn the air bag OFF.
Always be sure to be seated and wearing
the seat belt properly for the most effective
protection by the seat belt and supplemental air bag.
INFINITI recommends that pre-teens and
children be properly restrained in a rear
seat. INFINITI also recommends that appropriate child restraints and booster seats be
properly installed in a rear seat. If this is
not possible, the occupant classification
sensor is designed to operate as described
above to turn the front passenger air bag
OFF for specified child restraints. Failing to
properly secure child restrains and to use
the ALR mode (child restraint mode) may
allow the restraint to tip or move in an
accident or sudden stop. This can also
result in the passenger air bag inflating in
a crash instead of being OFF. (See “Child
restraints” (P.1-19) for proper use and
installation.)
If the front passenger seat is not occupied,
the passenger air bag is designed not to
inflate in a crash. However, heavy objects
placed on the seat could result in air bag
inflation, because of the object being
detected by the occupant classification
sensor. Other conditions could also result
in air bag inflation, such as if a child is
standing on the seat, or if two children are
on the seat, contrary to the instructions in
this manual. Always be sure that you and
all vehicle occupants are seated and
restrained properly.
Using the passenger air bag status light,
you can monitor when the front passenger
air bag is automatically turned OFF with the
seat occupied. The light will not illuminate
when the front passenger seat is unoccupied.
If an adult occupant is in the seat but the
passenger air bag status light is illuminated (indicating that the air bag is OFF), it
could be that the person is a small adult,
or is not sitting on the seat properly.
If a child restraint must be used in the front
seat, the passenger air bag status light
may or may not be illuminated, depending
on the size of the child and the type of
child restraint being used. If the passenger
air bag status light is not illuminated
(indicating that the air bag might inflate
in a crash), it could be that the child
restraint or seat belt is not being used
properly. Make sure that the child restraint
is installed properly, the seat belt is used
properly and the occupant is positioned
properly. If the passenger air bag status
light is still not illuminated, reposition the
occupant or child restraint in a rear seat.
If the passenger air bag status light will not
illuminate even though you believe that the
child restraint, the seat belts and the
occupant are properly positioned, the
system may be sensing an unoccupied
seat (in which case the air bag is OFF). Your
INFINITI retailer can check that the system
is OFF by using a special tool. However,
until you have confirmed with your retailer
that your air bag is working properly,
reposition the occupant or child restraint
in a rear seat.
The INFINITI Advanced Air Bag System and
passenger air bag status light will take a
few seconds to register a change in the
passenger seat status. However, if the seat
becomes unoccupied, the air bag status
light will remain off.

FRONT SEAT-MOUNTED SIDE-IMPACT SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG AND
DOOR-MOUNTED CURTAIN SIDE-IMPACT SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG SYSTEMS
GUID-6AEB86C3-55C0-49F1-B4B8-169C15947BA7
The side air bags are located in the outside
of the seatback of the front seats. The
curtain air bags are located in the upper
side of the door panel. These systems are
designed to meet voluntary guidelines to
help reduce the risk of injury to out-ofposition occupants. However, all of the
information, cautions and warnings in this
manual still apply and must be followed.
Vehicle damage (or lack of it) is not always
an indication of proper supplemental side
air bag and curtain side-impact air bag
operation.
When side air bags and curtain air bags
inflate, a fairly loud noise may be heard,
followed by release of smoke. This smoke
is not harmful and does not indicate a fire.
Care should be taken not to inhale it, as it
may cause irritation and choking. Those
with a history of a breathing condition
should get fresh air promptly.
Side air bags, along with the use of seat
belts, help to cushion the impact force on
the chest and pelvis of the front occupants.
Curtain air bags help to cushion the impact
force to the head of occupants in the front
seating positions. They can help save lives
and reduce serious injuries. However, an

may cause abrasions or other injuries. Side
air bags and curtain air bags do not
provide restraint to the lower body.
The seat belts should be correctly worn
and the driver and passenger seated
upright as far as practical away from the
side air bag. The side air bags and curtain
side air bags inflate quickly in order to help
protect the occupants. Because of this, the
force of the side air bags and curtain air
bags inflating can increase the risk of
injury if the occupant is too close to, or is
against, these air bag modules during
inflation. The side air bags and curtain air
bags will deflate quickly after the collision
is over.
.

Do not place any objects near the
seatback of the front seats. Also, do
not place any objects (an umbrella, bag,
etc.) between the front door finisher and
the front seat. Such objects may become
dangerous projectiles and cause injury if
side air bag inflates.
.
Right after inflation, several side air
bags and curtain air bag system components will be hot. Do not touch them;
you may severely burn yourself.
.
No unauthorized changes should be
made to any components or wiring of
side air bag and curtain air bags. This is
to prevent accidental inflation of the side
air bag and curtain air bag or damage to
side air bag and curtain air bag systems.
The side air bags and curtain air bags

CAUTION
When cleaning the inner side of the rear

.
When xenon headlights are on, they
produce a high voltage. To prevent an
electric shock, never attempt to modify
or disassemble. Always have your xenon
headlights replaced at an INFINITI retailer.
.
Xenon headlights provide considerably
more light than conventional headlights.
If they are not correctly aimed, they
might temporarily blind an oncoming
driver or the driver ahead of you and
cause a serious accident. If headlights
are not aimed correctly, immediately
take your vehicle to an INFINITI retailer
and have the headlights adjusted correctly.
It is generally desirable not to turn off
the headlights for short intervals (for
example, when the vehicle stops at a
traffic signal). Even when the daytime
running lights are active (Canada only),
the xenon headlights do not turn on.
This way the life of the xenon headlights is not reduced.
. If the xenon headlight bulb is close to
burning out, the brightness will drastically decrease, the light will start
blinking, or the color of the light will
become reddish. If one or more of the
above signs appear, contact an INFINITI
retailer.
When the xenon headlight is initially
turned on, its brightness or color varies
slightly. However, the color and brightness
will soon stabilize.
. The life of xenon headlights will be
shortened by frequent on-off operation.

transmitters into one built-in device.
required by federal safety standards.
(These standards became effective for
opener models manufactured after April
1, 1982.) A garage door opener which
cannot detect an object in the path of a
closing garage door and then automatically stop and reverse, does not meet
current federal safety standards. Using a
garage door opener without these features increases the risk of serious injury
or death.
HomeLink® Universal Transceiver:
. Will operate most Radio Frequency (RF)
devices such as garage doors, gates,
home and office lighting, entry door
locks and security systems.
. Is powered by your vehicle’s battery. No
separate batteries are required. If the
vehicle’s battery is discharged or is
disconnected, HomeLink® will retain all
programming.
Once HomeLink® Universal Transceiver is
programmed, retain the original transmitter for future programming procedures
(Example: new vehicle purchases). Upon
sale of the vehicle, the programmed
HomeLink® Universal Transceiver buttons
should be erased for security purposes.
For additional information, see “Programming HomeLink®” (P.2-53).
.
During programming procedure, your
garage door or security gate may open
or close. Make sure that people and
objects are clear of the garage door,
gate, etc. that you are programming.

Your vehicle’s engine should be turned
off while programming HomeLink® Universal Transceiver.

REARVIEW MONITOR
GUID-4C4EAC36-8904-46AA-BF80-175BFCB591CB
When the selector/shift lever is shifted into
the R (Reverse) position, the monitor display shows view to the rear of the vehicle.
The system is designed as an aid to the
driver in detecting large stationary objects
to help avoid damaging the vehicle. The
system will not detect small objects below
the bumper and may not detect objects
close to the bumper or on the ground.
.
Underneath the bumper and the corner
areas of the bumper cannot be viewed on
the rearview monitor because of its
monitoring range limitation.
.
Do not put anything on the rearview
camera. The rearview camera is installed
above the license plate.
.
When washing the vehicle with highpressure water, be sure not to spray it
around the camera. Otherwise, water
may enter the camera unit causing water
condensation on the lens, a malfunction,
fire or an electric shock.
.
Do not strike the camera. It is a precision
instrument. Otherwise, it may malfunction or cause damage resulting in a fire
or an electric shock.
WARNING
.
.
.
The rearview monitor is a convenience
but it is not a substitute for proper
vehicle operation because it has areas
where objects cannot be viewed. Always
look out the windows and check mirrors
to be sure that it is safe to move before
operating the vehicle. Always operate
the vehicle slowly.
Objects viewed in the RearView Monitor
differ from actual distance because a
wide-angle lens is used. Objects in the
RearView Monitor will appear visually
opposite like ones viewed in the inside
and outside mirrors.
Make sure that the trunk is securely
closed when backing up.

TIPS
. When the selector/shift lever is shifted
to the R (Reverse) position, the monitor
screen automatically changes to the
rearview monitor mode.
. It may take some time until the rearview
monitor is displayed after the selector/
shift lever has been shifted to R from
another position or to another position
from R. Objects may be distorted
momentarily until the rearview monitor
screen is displayed completely.
. When the temperature is extremely high
or low, the screen may not clearly
display objects. This is not a malfunction.
. When strong light directly enters the
camera, objects may not be displayed
clearly. This is not a malfunction.
. Vertical lines may be seen in objects on
the screen. This is due to strong
reflected light from the bumper. This
is not a malfunction.
. The screen may flicker under fluorescent light. This is not a malfunction.
. The colors of objects on the rearview
monitor may differ somewhat from
those of the actual object.
. Objects on the monitor may not be clear
in a dark place or at night. This is not a
malfunction.
. If dirt, rain or snow attaches to the
camera, the rearview monitor may not
clearly display objects. Clean the camera.
. Do not use alcohol, benzine or thinner
to clean the camera. This will cause
discoloration. To clean the camera,
wipe with a cloth dampened with
diluted mild cleaning agent and then
wipe with a dry cloth.
. Do not damage the camera as the
monitor screen may be adversely affected.
. Do not use wax on the camera window.
Wipe off any wax with a clean cloth

the environment in mind. This refrigerant
will not harm the earth’s ozone layer.
However, special charging equipment and
lubricant are required when servicing your
INFINITI air conditioner. Using improper
refrigerants or lubricants will cause severe
damage to your climate control system.
(See “Capacities and recommended fuel/
lubricants” (P.9-2) for climate control system refrigerant and lubricant recommendations.)

the radio with the engine not running, the
ignition switch should be pushed to the
ACC position.
Radio reception is affected by station
signal strength, distance from radio transmitter, buildings, bridges, mountains and
other external influences. Intermittent
changes in reception quality normally are
caused by these external influences.
Using a cellular phone in or near the
vehicle may influence radio reception
quality.
equipment is used. These characteristics
are completely normal in a given reception
area, and do not indicate any malfunction
in your INFINITI radio system.
Reception conditions will constantly
change because of vehicle movement.
Buildings, terrain, signal distance and
interference from other vehicles can work
against ideal reception. Described below
are some of the factors that can affect your
radio reception.
Some cellular phones or other devices may
cause interference or a buzzing noise to
come from the audio system speakers.
Storing the device in a different location
may reduce or eliminate the noise.
Radio reception:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
Your INFINITI radio system is equipped with
state-of-the-art electronic circuits to enhance radio reception. These circuits are
designed to extend reception range, and to
enhance the quality of that reception.
However there are some general characteristics of both FM and AM radio signals that
can affect radio reception quality in a
moving vehicle, even when the finest

from a station transmitter, the signals will
tend to fade and/or drift.
Static and flutter: During signal interference from buildings, large hills or due to
antenna position, usually in conjunction
with increased distance from the station
transmitter, static or flutter can be heard.
This can be reduced by lowering the treble
setting to reduce the treble response.
SAA0306
FM radio reception:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
Range: FM range is normally limited to 25
to 30 miles (40 to 48 km), with monaural
(single channel) FM having slightly more
range than stereo FM. External influences
may sometimes interfere with FM station
reception even if the FM station is within
25 miles (40 km). The strength of the FM
signal is directly related to the distance
between the transmitter and receiver. FM
signals follow a line-of-sight path, exhibiting many of the same characteristics as
light. For example they will reflect off
objects.
Fade and drift: As your vehicle moves away
4-40
Multipath reception: Because of the reflective characteristics of FM signals, direct
and reflected signals reach the receiver at
the same time. The signals may cancel
each other, resulting in momentary flutter
or loss of sound.
AM radio reception:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
AM signals, because of their low frequency,
can bend around objects and skip along
the ground. In addition, the signals can be
bounced off the ionosphere and bent back
to earth. Because of these characteristics.
AM signals are also subject to interference
as they travel from transmitter to receiver.
Fading: Occurs while the vehicle is passing
through freeway underpasses or in areas
with many tall buildings. It can also occur
for several seconds during ionospheric
turbulence even in areas where no obsta-
Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice recognition systems
cles exist.
Static: Caused by thunderstorms, electrical
power lines, electric signs and even traffic
lights.

reception:
When the satellite radio is used for the first
time or the battery has been replaced, the
satellite radio may not work properly. This
is not a malfunction. Wait more than 10
minutes with the satellite radio ON and the
vehicle outside of any metal or large
building for the satellite radio to receive
all of the necessary data.
The satellite radio mode requires an active
XM® Satellite Radio subscription. The
satellite radio is not available in Alaska,
Hawaii and Guam.
The satellite radio performance may be
affected if cargo carried on the roof blocks
the satellite radio signal.
If possible, do not put cargo near the

A build up of ice on the satellite radio
antenna can affect satellite radio performance. Remove the ice to restore satellite
radio reception.

. MP3 — MP3 is short for Moving Pictures
Experts Group Audio Layer 3. MP3 is
the most well known compressed
digital audio file format. This format
allows for near “CD quality” sound, but
at a fraction of the size of normal audio
files. MP3 conversion of an audio track
can reduce the file size by approximately a 10:1 ratio (Sampling: 44.1
kHz, Bit rate: 128 kbps) with virtually
no perceptible loss in quality. The
compression reduces certain parts of
sound that seem inaudible to most
people.
Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice recognition systems
. WMA — Windows Media Audio (WMA) is
a compressed audio format created by
Microsoft as an alternative to MP3. The
WMA codec offers greater file compression than the MP3 codec, enabling
storage of more digital audio tracks in
the same amount of space when
compared to MP3s at the same level
of quality.
. AAC/M4A — Advanced Audio Coding
(AAC) is a lossy audio compression
format. Audio files that have been
encoded with AAC are generally smaller
in size and deliver a higher quality of
sound than MP3.
. Bit rate — Bit rate denotes the number
of bits per second used by a digital
music file. The size and quality of a
compressed digital audio file is determined by the bit rate used when
encoding the file.
. Sampling frequency — Sampling frequency is the rate at which the samples
of a signal are converted from analog to
digital (A/D conversion) per second.
. Multisession — Multisession is one of
the methods for writing data to media.
Writing data once to the media is called
a single session, and writing more than

the files were written by the writing
software, so the files might not play in

once is called a multisession.
. ID3/WMA Tag — The ID3/WMA tag is the
part of the encoded MP3 or WMA file
that contains information about the
digital music file such as song title,
artist, album title, encoding bit rate,
track time duration, etc. ID3 tag information is displayed on the Album/
Artist/Track title line on the display.

Symptom
Cause and Countermeasure
Check if the disc or USB device was inserted correctly.
Check if the disc is scratched or dirty.
Check if there is condensation inside the player, and if there is, wait until the condensation is gone (about 1 hour) before using the
player.
If there is a temperature increase error, the player will play correctly after it returns to the normal temperature.
Cannot play
If there is a mixture of music CD files (CD-DA data) and compressed audio files on a CD, only the music CD files (CD-DA data) will be
played.
Files with extensions other than “.MP3 (.mp3)”, “.WMA (.wma)”, “.AAC (.aac)”, “.M4A (.m4a)”, or “.AA3 (.aa3)” cannot be played. In
addition, the character codes and number of characters for folder names and file names should be in compliance with the
specifications.
Check if the disc or the file is generated in an irregular format. This may occur depending on the variation or the setting of
compressed audio writing applications or other text editing applications.
Check if the finalization process, such as session close and disc close, is done for the disc.
Check if the disc or USB device is protected by copyright.
Poor sound quality
Check if the disc is scratched or dirty.

Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice recognition systems
Once a cellular phone is connected to the
in-vehicle phone module, no phone connecting procedure is required anymore.
Your phone is automatically connected
with the in-vehicle phone module when
the ignition switch is pushed to the ON
position with the registered cellular phone
turned on and carried in the vehicle.
You can register up to 5 different Bluetooth® cellular phones in the in-vehicle
phone module. However, you can talk on
only one cellular phone at a time.
The INFINITI Voice Recognition system
supports the phone commands, so dialing
a phone number using your voice is
possible. For more details, see “INFINITI
Voice Recognition system (models with
navigation system)” (P.4-109).
Before using the Bluetooth® Hands-Free
Phone System, refer to the following notes.
. Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) and the Bluetooth®
functions share the same frequency
band (2.4 GHz). Using the Bluetooth®
and the wireless LAN functions at the
same time may slow down or disconnect the communication and cause
undesired noise. It is recommended
that you turn off the wireless LAN (WiFi) when using the Bluetooth® func-
tions.
. Set up the wireless connection between
a compatible cellular phone and the invehicle phone module before using the
Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System.
. Some Bluetooth ® enabled cellular
phones may not be recognized by the
in-vehicle phone module. Please visit
www.InfinitiUSA.com/bluetooth for a
recommended phone list.
. You will not be able to use a hands-free
phone under the following conditions:
— Your vehicle is outside of the telephone service area.
— Your vehicle is in an area where it is
difficult to receive radio waves; such
as in a tunnel, in an underground
parking garage, behind a tall building or in a mountainous area.
— Your cellular phone is locked in
order not to be dialed.
. When the radio wave condition is not
ideal or ambient sound is too loud, it
may be difficult to hear the other
person’s voice during a call.
. Immediately after the ignition switch is
pushed to the ON position, it may be
impossible to receive a call for a short
period of time.
. Do not place the cellular phone in an
area surrounded by metal or far away
from the in-vehicle phone module to
prevent tone quality degradation and
wireless connection disruption.
. While a cellular phone is connected
through the Bluetooth® wireless connection, the battery power of the
cellular phone may discharge quicker
than usual.
. If the Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone
System seems to be malfunctioning,
please visit www.InfinitiUSA.com/bluetooth for troubleshooting help.
. Some cellular phones or other devices
may cause interference or a buzzing
noise to come from the audio system
speakers. Storing the device in a
different location may reduce or eliminate the noise.
. Refer to the cellular phone Owner’s
Manual regarding the telephone pairing
procedure specific to your phone,
battery charging, cellular phone antenna, etc.
. The antenna display on the monitor will
not coincide with the antenna display
of some cellular phones.
. Keep the interior of the vehicle as quiet
as possible to hear the caller’s voice
clearly as well as to minimize its
echoes.
. If reception between callers is unclear,
adjusting the incoming or outgoing call
volume may improve the clarity.

How to speakGUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
commands:
The Voice Recognition System requires a
certain way to speak voice commands.
Speak normally and clearly in the direction
of the microphone (located in front of the
rearview mirror). Every digit of the number
must be spoken individually and in a
normal manner. The hands-free mode will
work best when the telephone number is
spoken in blocks of three to five digits.
After each spoken block is terminated, the
system will repeat the three to five digits
and wait for you to speak the next digit or
block of digits required for the telephone
number.
See “List of voice commands” (P.4-101) for
the appropriate commands that can be
spoken for the hands-free mode system.
Example:
In order to initiate a call, speak “Phonebook”.
INFO
. If you are controlling the telephone
system by voice command for the first
time or do not know the appropriate
voice command, speak “Help”. The
Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice recognition systems

How to speakGUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
numbers:
INFINITI Voice Recognition requires a certain way to speak numbers when giving
voice commands. Refer to the following
examples.
Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice recognition systems
General rule
Only single digits 0 (zero) to 9 can be used.
(For example, if you would like to say 500,
“five zero zero” can be used, but “five
hundred” cannot.)
Examples
. 1-800-662-6200
— “One eight zero zero six six two six
two zero zero”
Improving Recognition of Phone numbers
You can improve the recognition of phone
numbers by saying the phone number in
three groups of numbers. For example,
when you try to call 800-662-6200, say
“eight zero zero” first, and the system will
then ask you for the next three digits. Then,
say “six six two”. After recognition, the
system will then ask for the last four digits.
Say, “six two zero zero”. Using this method
of phone digit entry can improve recognition performance.
When speaking a house number, speak the
number “0” as “zero”. If the letter “o (oh)”
is included in the house number, it will not
be recognized as the number “0 (zero)”
even if you speak “oh” instead of “zero”.
Please speak “zero” for the number “0
(zero)”, “oh” for the letter “o (oh)”.
Send digits using
dial tone:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
. Press the TALK
switch during a
phone call.
. The menu will be launched and you will
be provided with the following guidance: "Please say the digits to dial".
. After guidance, say the digits of the
number you want to send. After this,
the digits that have been recognized
will be read out.
. If you press the ENTER button on the
steering wheel or on the INFINITI controller, the selected digits will be sent.

The system should respond correctly to all voice commands without difficulty. If problems are encountered, follow the solutions given in
this guide for the appropriate error.
Where the solutions are listed by number, try each solution in turn, starting with number one, until the problem is resolved.
Symptom/error message
Displays “COMMAND NOT RECOGNIZED” or the
system fails to interpret the command correctly.
Solution
1. Ensure that the command format is valid, see “Command List” (P.4-116).
2. Speak clearly without pausing between words and at a level appropriate to the ambient noise level.
3. Ensure that the ambient noise level is not excessive, for example, windows open or defrost on.
NOTE:
If it is too noisy to use the phone, it is likely that voice commands will not be recognized.
4. If optional words of the command have been omitted, then the command should be tried with these in place.
The system consistently selects the wrong voicetag in 1. Ensure that the voicetag requested matches what was originally stored. (See “Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone
the phonebook.
System (models with navigation system)” (P.4-84).)
2. Replace one of the voicetags being confused with a different voicetag.
The system cannot be operated.
1. Make sure that the retractable hard top is usable. If the retractable hard top is not working, contact an INFINITI
retailer.
2. Close the retractable hard top.
3. Open and close the retractable hard top before operating the system.

PRECAUTIONS WHEN STARTING AND
DRIVING
GUID-44782A6F-CDF3-4C7B-81AC-D0330BCF5D5C
WARNING
.
.
Do not leave children or adults who
would normally require the support of
others alone in your vehicle. Pets should
not be left alone either. They could
accidentally injure themselves or others
through inadvertent operation of the
vehicle. Also, on hot, sunny days,
temperatures in a closed vehicle could
quickly become high enough to cause
severe or possibly fatal injuries to
people or animals.
Closely supervise children when they are
around cars to prevent them from playing and becoming locked in the trunk
where they could be seriously injured.
Keep the car locked, with the rear
seatback and trunk lid securely latched
when not in use, and prevent children’s
access to car keys.
EXHAUST GAS
(carbon monoxide)
GUID-9B424B2E-81F3-4BA1-BF2D-AD3661BD7EB5
.
If electrical wiring or other cable connections must pass to a trailer through
the seal on the trunk lid or the body,
follow the manufacturer’s recommendation to prevent carbon monoxide entry
into the vehicle.
.
The exhaust system and body should be
inspected by a qualified mechanic whenever:
WARNING
.
.
Do not breathe exhaust gases; they
contain colorless and odorless carbon
monoxide. Carbon monoxide is dangerous. It can cause unconsciousness or
death.
If you suspect that exhaust fumes are
entering the vehicle, drive with all
windows fully open, and have the
vehicle inspected immediately.
.
Do not run the engine in closed spaces
such as a garage.
.
Do not park the vehicle with the engine
running for any extended length of time.
.
Keep the trunk lid closed while driving,
otherwise exhaust gases could be drawn
into the passenger compartment. If you
must drive with the trunk lid open,
follow these precautions:
— The vehicle is raised for service.
— You suspect that exhaust fumes are
entering into the passenger compartment.
— You notice a change in the sound of
the exhaust system.
— You have had an accident involving
damage to the exhaust system,
underbody, or rear of the vehicle.
1) Open all the windows.
2) Set the
air recirculation to off
and the fan control to high to
circulate the air.

Do not push or tow your vehicle to start
the engine.
TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)
GUID-AE064E79-B7BC-43E8-A59C-8E37C2FE1CEC
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 underinflated. Accordingly, when the low tire
pressure telltale illuminates, you should
stop and check all 4 tires as soon as
possible, and inflate them to the proper
pressure. Driving on a significantly underinflated 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.
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.
Additional information
GUID-D7D269B6-A591-4DFF-AFB3-F7FF8C413BB8
. The TPMS does not monitor the tire
pressure of the spare tire.
. The TPMS will activate only when the
vehicle is driven at speeds above 16
MPH (25 km/h). Also, this system may
not detect a sudden drop in tire
pressure (for example a flat tire while
driving).
. The low tire pressure warning light does
not automatically turn off when the tire
pressure is adjusted. After the tire is
inflated to the recommended pressure,
the vehicle must be driven at speeds
above 16 MPH (25 km/h) to activate the
TPMS and turn off the low tire pressure
warning light. Use a tire pressure gauge
to check the tire pressure.
. The CHECK TIRE PRESSURE warning
appears on the dot matrix liquid crystal
display when the low tire pressure
warning light is illuminated and low
tire pressure is detected. The CHECK
TIRE PRESSURE warning turns off when
the low tire pressure warning light
turns off.
The CHECK TIRE PRESSURE warning
does not appear if the low tire pressure
warning light illuminates to indicate a
TPMS malfunction.
. Tire pressure rises and falls depending
on the heat caused by the vehicle’s
operation and the outside temperature.
Low outside temperature can lower the
temperature of the air inside the tire
which can cause a lower tire inflation
pressure. This may cause the low tire
pressure warning light to illuminate. If
the warning light illuminates in low
ambient temperature, check the tire
pressure for all four tires.
For additional information, see “Low tire
pressure warning light” (P.2-12) and “Tire
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)” (P.62).
WARNING
.
If the low tire pressure warning light
illuminates while driving, avoid sudden
steering maneuvers or abrupt braking,
reduce vehicle speed, pull off the road to
a safe location and stop the vehicle as
soon as possible. Driving with underinflated tires may permanently damage
the tires and increase the likelihood of
tire failure. Serious vehicle damage
could occur and may lead to an accident
and could result in serious personal
injury. Check the tire pressure for all
four tires. Adjust the tire pressure to the
recommended COLD tire pressure shown
on the Tire and Loading Information
label to turn the low tire pressure
warning light OFF. If the light still
illuminates while driving after adjusting
the tire pressure, a tire may be flat. If
you have a flat tire, replace it with a
spare tire as soon as possible. (See “Flat
tire” (P.6-2) for changing a flat tire.)

When a spare tire is mounted or a wheel
is replaced, the TPMS will not function
and the low tire pressure warning light
will flash for approximately 1 minute.
The light will remain on after 1 minute.
Contact your INFINITI retailer as soon as
possible for tire replacement and/or
system resetting.
Replacing tires with those not originally
specified by INFINITI could affect the
proper operation of the TPMS.
Do not inject any tire liquid or aerosol
tire sealant into the tires, as this may
cause a malfunction of the tire pressure
sensors (for models not equipped with
the emergency tire puncture repair kit).
If you used the Emergency Tire Sealant
to repair a minor tire puncture, your
INFINITI retailer will also need to replace
the TPMS sensor in addition to repairing
or replacing the tire (for models
equipped with the emergency tire puncture repair kit).
INFINITI recommends using only INFINITI
Genuine Emergency Tire Sealant provided with your vehicle. Other tire
sealants may damage the valve stem

AVOIDING COLLISION AND ROLLOVER
GUID-86329E57-6065-4662-830B-B76BFB82C712
WARNING
Failure to operate this vehicle in a safe and
prudent manner may result in loss of control
or an accident.
Be alert and drive defensively at all times.
Obey all traffic regulations. Avoid excessive speed, high speed cornering, or
sudden steering maneuvers, because
these driving practices could cause you to
lose control of your vehicle. As with any
vehicle, a loss of control could result in a
collision with other vehicles or objects, or
cause the vehicle to rollover, particularly if
the loss of control causes the vehicle to
slide sideways. Be attentive at all times,
and avoid driving when tired. Never drive
when under the influence of alcohol or
drugs (including prescription or over-thecounter drugs which may cause drowsiness). Always wear your seat belt as
outlined in the “Seat belts” (P.1-11) of this
manual, and also instruct your passengers
to do so.
Seat belts help reduce the risk of injury in
collisions and rollovers. In a rollover crash,
an unbelted or improperly belted person is
significantly more likely to be injured or
killed than a person properly wearing a
seat belt.
OFF-ROAD RECOVERY
GUID-C9E8A175-F2F9-4C1D-A1F4-A784EAC8016F
While driving, the right side or left side
wheels may unintentionally leave the road
surface. If this occurs, maintain control of
the vehicle by following the procedure
below. Please note that this procedure is
only a general guide. The vehicle must be
driven as appropriate based on the conditions of the vehicle, road and traffic.
1. Remain calm and do not overreact.
2. Do not apply the brakes.
3. Maintain a firm grip on the steering
wheel with both hands and try to hold a
straight course.
4. When appropriate, slowly release the
accelerator pedal to gradually slow the
vehicle.
5. If there is nothing in the way, steer the
vehicle to follow the road while the
vehicle speed is reduced. Do not
attempt to drive the vehicle back onto
the road surface until vehicle speed is
reduced.
6. When it is safe to do so, gradually turn
the steering wheel until both tires
return to the road surface. When all
tires are on the road surface, steer the
vehicle to stay in the appropriate
driving lane.
. If you decide that it is not safe to
return the vehicle to the road surface
based on vehicle, road or traffic
conditions, gradually slow the vehicle to a stop in a safe place off the
road.
RAPID AIR PRESSURE
LOSS
GUID-629B9264-4E1F-4FCA-B713-FA28BCE24AFD
Rapid air pressure loss or a “blow-out” can
occur if the tire is punctured or is damaged
due to hitting a curb or pothole. Rapid air
pressure loss can also be caused by
driving on under-inflated tires.
Rapid air pressure loss can affect the
handling and stability of the vehicle,
especially at highway speeds.
Help prevent rapid air pressure loss by
maintaining the correct air pressure and
visually inspect the tires for wear and
damage. See “Wheels and tires” (P.8-29) of
this manual.
Starting and driving

If a tire rapidly loses air pressure or
“blows-out” while driving maintain control
of the vehicle by following the procedure
below. Please note that this procedure is
only a general guide. The vehicle must be
driven as appropriate based on the conditions of the vehicle, road and traffic.
WARNING
The following actions can increase the
chance of losing control of the vehicle if
there is a sudden loss of tire air pressure.
Losing control of the vehicle may cause a
collision and result in personal injury.
.
The vehicle generally moves or pulls in
the direction of the flat tire.

DRINKING ALCOHOL/DRUGS AND
DRIVING GUID-13C3E07E-F52F-4804-BE32-BDBDEB1ED016
WARNING
Never drive under the influence of alcohol or
drugs. Alcohol in the bloodstream reduces
coordination, delays reaction time and impairs judgement. Driving after drinking
alcohol increases the likelihood of being
involved in an accident injuring yourself and
others. Additionally, if you are injured in an
accident, alcohol can increase the severity
of the injury.
INFINITI is committed to safe driving.
However, you must choose not to drive
under the influence of alcohol. Every year
thousands of people are injured or killed in
alcohol-related accidents. Although the
local laws vary on what is considered to
be legally intoxicated, the fact is that
alcohol affects all people differently and
most people underestimate the effects of
alcohol.
Remember, drinking and driving don’t mix!
And that is true for drugs, too (over-thecounter, prescription, and illegal drugs).
Don’t drive if your ability to operate your
vehicle is impaired by alcohol, drugs, or
some other physical condition.

Adaptive shift
control (ASC)
GUID-AEB4A362-DBFB-4302-BBDA-E06349BDD353
The adaptive shift control system automatically operates when the transmission is
in the "D" (drive) and "DS" (Drive Sport)
position and selects an appropriate gear
depending on the road conditions such as
uphill, downhill or curving roads.
Control on uphill
and curving roads:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
A low gear is maintained that suits the
degree of the slope or curve to allow
smooth driving with a small number of
shifts.
Control on downhill
roads:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
The adaptive shift control system shifts to
a low gear that suits the degree of the
slope, and uses the engine braking to
reduce the number of times that the brake
must be used.
Control on winding
roads:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
A low gear is maintained on continuous
curves that involve repeated acceleration
and deceleration, so that smooth acceleration is available instantly when the accelerator pedal is depressed.
NOTE:
. Adaptive shift control may not operate
when the transmission oil temperature
is low immediately after the start of
driving or when it is very hot.
. During some driving situations, hard
braking for example, the adaptive shift
control may automatically operate. The
transmission may automatically shift
to a lower gear for engine braking. This
increases engine speed but not vehicle
speed. Vehicle speed is controlled by
the accelerator pedal when the vehicle
is in the Adaptive shift control mode.
. When the adaptive shift control operates, the transmission sometimes

Always pay attention to the operation of
the vehicle and be ready to manually
control the proper following distance. The
vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode of
the Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) system
may not be able to maintain the selected
distance between vehicles (following distance) or selected vehicle speed under
some circumstances.
The vehicle-to-vehicle distance control
A
mode uses a sensor *
located on the
front of the vehicle to detect vehicles
traveling ahead. The sensor generally
detects the signals returned from the
reflectors on a vehicle ahead. Therefore, if
the sensor cannot detect the reflector on
the vehicle ahead, the ICC system may not
maintain the selected distance.
The following are some conditions in which
the sensor cannot detect the signals:
. When the reflector of the vehicle ahead
is positioned high on the vehicle
(trailer, etc.)
. When the reflector on the vehicle ahead
is missing, damaged or covered
. When the reflector of the vehicle ahead
is covered with dirt, snow and road
spray
. When the snow or road spray from
traveling vehicles reduces the sensor’s
visibility
. When dense exhaust or other smoke
(black smoke) from vehicles reduces
the sensor’s visibility
. When excessively heavy baggage is
loaded in the rear seat or the trunk of
your vehicle
The ICC system is designed to automatically check the sensor’s operation within
the limitations of the system. When the
sensor is covered with dirt or obstructs, the
system will automatically be canceled. If
the sensor is covered with ice, a transparent or translucent vinyl bag, etc., the ICC
system may not detect them. In these
instances, the vehicle-to-vehicle distance
control mode may not cancel and may not
be able to maintain the selected following
distance from the vehicle ahead. Be sure to
check and clean the sensor regularly.
decelerate the vehicle as necessary. However, the ICC system can only apply up to
25% of the vehicles total braking power.
This system should only be used when
traffic conditions allow vehicle speeds to
remain fairly constant or when vehicle
speeds change gradually. If a vehicle
moves into the traveling lane ahead or if
a vehicle traveling ahead rapidly decelerates, the distance between vehicles may
become closer because the ICC system
cannot decelerate the vehicle quickly enough. If this occurs, the ICC system will
sound a warning chime and blink the
system display to notify the driver to take
necessary action.

between approximately 25 and 90 MPH
(40 and 144 km/h).
. When there is a vehicle traveling ahead,
the vehicle-to-vehicle distance control
mode adjusts the speed to maintain the
distance, selected by driver, from the
vehicle ahead. The adjusting speed
range is between approximately 20
MPH (32 km/h) and up to the set
speed.
. When the vehicle traveling ahead has
moved out from its lane of travel, the
vehicle-to-vehicle distance control
mode accelerates and maintains vehicle speed up to the set speed.
The ICC system does not control vehicle
speed or warn you when you approach
stationary and slow moving vehicles. You
must pay attention to vehicle operation to
maintain proper distance from vehicles
ahead when approaching toll gates or
traffic congestion.

Starting and driving
SSD0252
The detection zone of the ICC sensor is
limited. A vehicle ahead must be in the
detection zone for the vehicle-to-vehicle
distance detection mode to maintain the
selected distance from the vehicle ahead.
A vehicle ahead may move outside of the
detection zone due to its position within
the same lane of travel. Motorcycles may
not be detected in the same lane ahead if
they are traveling offset from the centerline
of the lane. A vehicle that is entering the
lane ahead may not be detected until the
vehicle has completely moved into the
lane. If this occurs, the ICC system may
warn you by blinking the system indicator
and sounding the chime. The driver may
have to manually control the proper
distance away from vehicle traveling
ahead.
SSD0253
When driving on some roads, such as
winding, hilly, curved, narrow roads, or
roads which are under construction, the
ICC sensor may detect vehicles in a
different lane, or may temporarily not
detect a vehicle traveling ahead. This may
cause the ICC system to decelerate or
accelerate the vehicle.
The detection of vehicles may also be
affected by vehicle operation (steering
maneuver or traveling position in the lane,
etc.) or vehicle condition. If this occurs, the
ICC system may warn you by blinking the
system indicator and sounding the chime
unexpectedly. You will have to manually
control the proper distance away from the
vehicle traveling ahead.
SSD0254
When driving on the freeway at a set speed
and approaching a slower traveling vehicle
ahead, the ICC will adjust the speed to
maintain the distance, selected by the
driver, from the vehicle ahead. If the
vehicle ahead changes lanes or exits the
freeway, the ICC system will accelerate and
maintain the speed up to the set speed.
Pay attention to the driving operation to
maintain control of the vehicle as it
accelerates to the set speed.
The vehicle may not maintain the set speed
on winding or hilly roads. If this occurs,
you will have to manually control the
vehicle speed.

CAUTION
Keep the interior of the vehicle as quiet as
possible to hear the tone clearly.
The sonar system sounds a tone to warn
the driver of obstacles near the bumper.
When the “Sonar Display” key is ON, the
sonar indicator will also appear in the
center display. (See “Sonar indicator” (P.548).) The system detects rear obstacles
when the selector or shift lever is in the R
(Reverse) position.
The system may not detect objects at
speeds above 6 MPH (10 km/h) and may
not detect certain angular or moving
objects.
The sonar system detects obstacles up to
3.9 ft (1.2 m) from the bumper with a
decreased coverage area at the outer
corners of the bumper. Refer to the
illustration for approximate zone coverage
areas. As you move closer to the obstacle,
the rate of the tone increases. When the
obstacle is less than 11.8 in (30 cm) away,

The brake system has two separate hydraulic circuits. If one circuit malfunctions,
you will still have braking at two wheels.
Vacuum assisted
brakes
GUID-FB3BB3B2-604D-4649-8638-2E41A80E1853
The brake booster aids braking by using
engine vacuum. If the engine stops, you
can stop the vehicle by depressing the
brake pedal. However, greater foot pressure on the brake pedal will be required to
stop the vehicle and the stopping distance
will be longer.
When the brake pedal is depressed slowly
and firmly, you may hear a clicking noise
and feel a slight pulsation. This is normal
and indicates that the Brake Assist System
is operating.
Wet brakesGUID-435B5EB3-1F68-4B06-9333-CD2462DA6490
When the vehicle is washed or driven
through water, the brakes may get wet.
As a result, your braking distance will be
longer and the vehicle may pull to one side
during braking.
To dry brakes, drive the vehicle at a safe
speed while lightly tapping the brake pedal
to heat-up the brakes. Do this until the
brakes return to normal. Avoid driving the

GUID-837DE698-6E89-4ED2-965C-C45C0822EC96
Break in the parking brake shoes whenever
the stopping effect of the parking brake is
weakened or whenever the parking brake
shoes and/or drums/rotors are replaced,
in order to assure the best braking
performance.
This procedure is described in the vehicle
service manual and can be performed by
an INFINITI retailer.
Using the brakes
GUID-798BCC8C-1840-436E-B736-D4D16F071B12
Avoid resting your foot on the brake pedal
while driving. This will cause overheating
of the brakes, wearing out the brake and
pads faster and reduce gas mileage.
To help save the brakes and to prevent the
brakes from overheating, reduce speed
and downshift to a lower gear before going
down a slope or long grade. Overheated
brakes may reduce braking performance
and could result in loss of vehicle control.
WARNING
.
While driving on a slippery surface, be
careful when braking, accelerating or
downshifting. Abrupt braking or accelerating could cause the wheels to skid
and result in an accident.
.
If the engine is not running or is turned
off while driving, the power assist for
the brakes will not work. Braking will be
harder.

When the Preview Function identifies the
need to apply emergency braking by
sensing a vehicle ahead in the same lane
and the distance and relative speed from
it, it applies the brake pre-pressure before
the driver depresses the brake pedal and
helps improve brake response by reducing
pedal free play.
. This system will not operate when the
vehicle is moving at approximately 20
MPH (32 km/h) or less.
. The pre-pressure function ceases when
the following conditions are met:
1) When the driver depresses the

BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)
The sensor for the Preview Function is
common with Intelligent Cruise Control and
is located below the front bumper.
To keep the Preview Function operating
properly, be sure to observe the following:
. Always keep the sensor clean. Wipe
with a soft cloth carefully so as not to
damage the sensor.
. Do not strike or damage the areas
around the sensor. Do not touch or
remove the screw located on the
sensor. Doing so could cause failure
or malfunction. If the sensor is damaged due to an accident, contact an
INFINITI retailer.
. Do not attach a sticker (including
transparent material) or install an
accessory near the sensor. This could
cause failure or malfunction.
WARNING
.
.
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is a
sophisticated device, but it cannot prevent accidents resulting from careless or
dangerous driving techniques. It can
help maintain vehicle control during
braking on slippery surfaces. Remember
that stopping distances on slippery
surfaces will be longer than on normal
surfaces even with ABS. Stopping distances may also be longer on rough,
gravel or snow covered roads, or if you
are using tire chains. Always maintain a
safe distance from the vehicle in front of
you. Ultimately, the driver is responsible
for safety.
Tire type and condition may also affect
braking effectiveness.

— For detailed information, see
“Wheels and tires” (P.8-29) of this
manual.
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) controls the brakes so the wheels do not lock
during hard braking or when braking on
slippery surfaces. The system detects the
rotation speed at each wheel and varies
the brake fluid pressure to prevent each
wheel from locking and sliding. By preventing each wheel from locking, the
system helps the driver maintain steering
control and helps to minimize swerving
and spinning on slippery surfaces.
Using the system

Depress the brake pedal and hold it down.
Depress the brake pedal with firm steady
pressure, but do not pump the brakes. The
ABS will operate to prevent the wheels
from locking up. Steer the vehicle to avoid
obstacles.

Do not pump the brake pedal. Doing so may
result in increased stopping distances.
Self-test feature
GUID-4FC5730B-9006-485D-8F47-48423827A0FD
The ABS includes electronic sensors, electric pumps, hydraulic solenoids and a
computer. The computer has a built-in
diagnostic feature that tests the system
each time you start the engine and move
the vehicle at a low speed in forward or
reverse. When the self-test occurs, you may
hear a “clunk” noise and/or feel a pulsation in the brake pedal. This is normal and
does not indicate a malfunction. If the
computer senses a malfunction, it switches
the ABS off and illuminates the ABS
warning light on the instrument panel.
The brake system then operates normally,
but without anti-lock assistance.
If the ABS warning light illuminates during
the self-test or while driving, have the
vehicle checked by an INFINITI retailer.
Normal operation
GUID-4A24737D-9B87-4CFC-A807-4E8F57A64E71
The ABS operates at speeds above 3 to 6
MPH (5 to 10 km/h).
When the ABS senses that one or more
wheels are close to locking up, the actuator
rapidly applies and releases hydraulic
pressure. This action is similar to pumping
the brakes very quickly. You may feel a
pulsation in the brake pedal and hear a
noise from under the hood or feel a
vibration from the actuator when it is
operating. This is normal and indicates
that the ABS is operating properly. However, the pulsation may indicate that road
conditions are hazardous and extra care is
required while driving.
The Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system
uses various sensors to monitor driver
inputs and vehicle motion. Under certain
driving conditions, the VDC system helps
to perform the following functions.
. Controls brake pressure to reduce
wheel slip on one slipping drive wheel
so power is transferred to a non
slipping drive wheel on the same axle.
. Controls brake pressure and engine
output to reduce drive wheel slip based
on vehicle speed (traction control function).
. Controls brake pressure at individual
wheels and engine output to help the
driver maintain control of the vehicle in
the following conditions:
— understeer (vehicle tends to not
follow the steered path despite
increased steering input)
— oversteer (vehicle tends to spin due
to certain road or driving conditions).
The VDC system can help the driver to
maintain control of the vehicle, but it
cannot prevent loss of vehicle control in
all driving situations.
When the VDC system operates, the VDC
warning light

flashes so note the following:
. The road may be slippery or the system
may determine some action is required
to help keep the vehicle on the steered
path.
. You may feel a pulsation in the brake
pedal and hear a noise or vibration
from under the hood. This is normal
and indicates that the VDC system is
working properly.
. Adjust your speed and driving to the
road conditions.
See “Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) warning light” (P.2-14).
If a malfunction occurs in the system, the

The VDC OFF switch is used to turn off the
VDC system. The VDC off indicator
illuminates to indicate the VDC system is
off. When the VDC switch is used to turn off
the system, the VDC system still operates
to prevent one drive wheel from slipping by
transferring power to a non slipping drive
wheel. The VDC warning light

TIRE EQUIPMENT
GUID-A19A4B63-2858-43F2-970D-016811637FE9
SUMMER tires have a tread designed to
provide superior performance on dry pavement. However, the performance of these
tires will be substantially reduced in snowy
and icy conditions. If you operate your
vehicle on snowy or icy roads, INFINITI
recommends the use of MUD & SNOW or
ALL SEASON tires on all four wheels.
Consult an INFINITI retailer for the tire
type, size, speed rating and availability
information.
For additional traction on icy roads,
studded tires may be used. However, some
U.S. states and Canadian provinces prohibit their use. Check local, state and
provincial laws before installing studded
tires.
Skid and traction capabilities of studded
snow tires, on wet or dry surfaces, may be

Wet ice (328F, 08C and freezing rain),
very cold snow or ice can be slick and
very hard to drive on. The vehicle will
have much less traction or “grip” under
these conditions. Try to avoid driving on
wet ice until the road is salted or
sanded.
Whatever the condition, drive with caution. Accelerate and slow down with
care. If accelerating or downshifting too
fast, the drive wheels will lose even
more traction.
.
Allow more stopping distance under
these conditions. Braking should be
started sooner than on dry pavement.
.
Allow greater following distances on
slippery roads.
.
Watch for slippery spots (glare ice).
These may appear on an otherwise clear
road in shaded areas. If a patch of ice is
seen ahead, brake before reaching it. Try
not to brake while on the ice, and avoid
any sudden steering maneuvers.

This vehicle is equipped with the Tire
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). It
monitors tire pressure of all tires except
the spare. When the low tire pressure
warning light is lit and the CHECK TIRE
PRESSURE warning appears on the dot
matrix crystal display, one or more of your
tires is significantly under-inflated. If the
vehicle is being driven with low tire

In case of emergency
If the low tire pressure warning light
illuminates while driving, avoid sudden
steering maneuvers or abrupt braking,
reduce vehicle speed, pull off the road to
a safe location and stop the vehicle as
soon as possible. Driving with underinflated tires may permanently damage
the tires and increase the likelihood of
tire failure. Serious vehicle damage
could occur and may lead to an accident
and could result in serious personal
injury. Check the tire pressure for all
four tires. Adjust the tire pressure to the
recommended COLD tire pressure shown
on the Tire and Loading Information
label to turn the low tire pressure
warning light OFF. If the light still
illuminates while driving after adjusting
the tire pressure, a tire may be flat. If
you have a flat tire, replace it with a
spare tire as soon as possible.
.
When a spare tire is mounted or a wheel
is replaced, the TPMS will not function
and the low tire pressure warning light
will flash for approximately 1 minute.
The light will remain on after 1 minute.
Contact your INFINITI retailer as soon as
possible for tire replacement and/or
system resetting.

CLEANING EXTERIOR
GUID-7AF89F49-0121-4C5A-B2E9-F5570E28289D
In order to maintain the appearance of
your vehicle, it is important to take proper
care of it.
To protect the paint surface, wash your
vehicle as soon as you can:
. after a rainfall to prevent possible
damage from acid rain
. after driving on coastal roads
. when contaminants such as soot, bird
droppings, tree sap, metal particles or
bugs get on the paint surface
. when dust or mud builds up on the
surface
Whenever possible, store or park your
vehicle inside a garage or in a covered
area.
WASHING
CAUTION
.
When it is necessary to park outside, park
in a shady area or protect the vehicle with
a body cover.
Be careful not to scratch the paint surface
when putting on or removing the body
cover.

Appearance and care
.
must be taken when removing caked-on
dirt or other foreign substances so the
paint surface is not scratched or damaged.
GUID-C7D39018-743C-40A6-8344-B679CF0A2033
Wash dirt off the vehicle with a wet sponge
and plenty of water. Clean the vehicle
thoroughly using a mild soap, a special
vehicle soap or general purpose dishwashing liquid mixed with clean, lukewarm
(never hot) water.
Do not use car washes that use acid in
the detergent. Some car washes, especially brushless ones, use some acid for
cleaning. The acid may react with some
plastic vehicle components, causing
them to crack. This could affect their
appearance, and also could cause them
not to function properly. Always check
with your car wash to confirm that acid
is not used.
Do not wash the vehicle with strong
household soap, strong chemical detergents, gasoline or solvents.
.
Do not wash the vehicle in direct sunlight or while the vehicle body is hot, as
the surface may become water-spotted.
.
Avoid using tight-napped or rough
cloths, such as washing mitts. Care
.
Do not use an automatic car wash or
high pressure car wash. Avoid applying
water continuously to the parts around
the roof and the windows. This may
cause water to leak into the inside of
your vehicle.
Rinse the vehicle thoroughly with plenty of
clean water.
Inside flanges, seams and folds on the
doors, hatches and hood are particularly
vulnerable to the effects of road salt.
Therefore, these areas must be regularly
cleaned. Make sure that the drain holes in
the lower edge of the door are open. Spray
water under the body and in the wheel
wells to loosen the dirt and wash away
road salt.
Avoid leaving water spots on the paint
surface by using a damp chamois to dry
the vehicle.
WAXING
GUID-D7E2A5AF-98DD-4330-B0D0-8D30870A66CF
Regular waxing protects the paint surface
and helps retain new vehicle appearance.
Polishing is recommended to remove builtup wax residue and to avoid a weathered
appearance before reapplying wax.
An INFINITI retailer can assist you in
choosing the proper product.
. Wax your vehicle only after a thorough
washing. Follow the instructions supplied with the wax.
. Do not use a wax containing any
abrasives, cutting compounds or cleaners that may damage the vehicle
finish.
Machine compound or aggressive polishing on a base coat/clear coat paint finish
may dull the finish or leave swirl marks.
REMOVING GUID-492BA936-565C-451C-ACA3-4011197AA188
SPOTS
Remove tar and oil spots, industrial dust,
insects, and tree sap as quickly as possible
from the paint surface to avoid lasting
damage or staining. Special cleaning
products are available at an INFINITI
retailer or any automotive accessory
stores.
UNDERBODY

ALLOY WHEELS
In areas where road salt is used in winter,
the underbody must be cleaned regularly.
This will prevent dirt and salt from building
up and causing the acceleration of corrosion on the underbody and suspension.
Before the winter period and again in the
spring, the underseal must be checked
and, if necessary, re-treated.
Wash regularly with a sponge dampened in
a mild soap solution, especially during
winter months in areas where road salt is
used. Salt could discolor the wheels if not
removed.
GLASS
GUID-6C9D9F58-364C-48BB-AC4A-2F08241AF567
Use glass cleaner to remove smoke and
dust film from the glass surfaces. It is
normal for glass to become coated with a
film after the vehicle is parked in the hot
sun. Glass cleaner and a soft cloth will
easily remove this film.
CAUTION
Follow the directions below to avoid staining or discoloring the wheels:
.
Do not use a cleaner that uses strong
acid or alkali contents to clean the
wheels.
.
Do not apply wheel cleaners to the
wheels when they are hot. The wheel
temperature should be the same as
ambient temperature.
.
Rinse the wheel to completely remove
the cleaner within 15 minutes after the
cleaner is applied.
CAUTION
When cleaning the inside of the windows,
do not use sharp-edged tools, abrasive
cleaners or chlorine-based disinfectant cleaners. They could damage the electrical
conductors, radio antenna elements or rear
window defroster elements.

TIRE DRESSING
GUID-6213038C-85D8-458A-A225-4CA585E86FD7
INFINITI does not recommend the use of
tire dressings. Tire manufacturers apply a
coating to the tires to help reduce discoloration of the rubber. If a tire dressing is
applied to the tires, it may react with the
coating and form a compound. This compound may come off the tire while driving
and stain the vehicle paint.
If you choose to use a tire dressing, take
the following precautions:
. Use a water-based tire dressing. The
coating on the tire dissolves more
easily with an oil-based tire dressing.
. Apply a light coat of tire dressing to
help prevent it from entering the tire
tread/grooves (where it would be difficult to remove).
. Wipe off excess tire dressing using a
dry towel. Make sure the tire dressing
is completely removed from the tire
tread/grooves.
. Allow the tire dressing to dry as
recommended by tire dressing manu-

Occasionally remove loose dust from the
interior trim, plastic parts and seats using
a vacuum cleaner or soft bristled brush.
Wipe the vinyl and leather surfaces with a
clean, soft cloth dampened in mild soap
solution, then wipe clean with a dry soft
cloth.
Regular care and cleaning is required in
order to maintain the appearance of the
leather.
Before using any fabric protector, read the
manufacturer’s recommendations. Some
fabric protectors contain chemicals that
may stain or bleach the seat material.
Use a cloth dampened only with water, to
clean the meter and gauge lens.
WARNING
Do not use water or acidic cleaners (hot
steam cleaners) on the seat. This can
damage the seat or occupant classification
sensor. This can also affect the operation of
the air bag system and result in serious
personal injury.
CAUTION
.
Never use benzine, thinner, or any
similar material.
.
Small dirt particles can be abrasive and
damaging to the leather surfaces and
should be removed promptly. Do not use
saddle soap, car waxes, polishes, oils,
cleaning fluids, solvents, detergents or
ammonia-based cleaners as they may
damage the leather’s natural finish.
.
Only use fabric protectors approved by
INFINITI.

Do not use glass or plastic cleaner on
meter or gauge lens covers. It may
damage the lens cover.
AIR FRESHENERS
GUID-59E4BAA1-C864-45BB-9523-2C9768183480
Most air fresheners use a solvent that
could affect the vehicle interior. If you use
an air freshener, take the following precautions:
. Hanging-type air fresheners can cause
permanent discoloration when they
contact vehicle interior surfaces. Place
the air freshener in a location that
allows it to hang free and not contact
an interior surface.
. Liquid-type air fresheners typically clip
on the vents. These products can cause
immediate damage and discoloration
when spilled on interior surfaces.
Carefully read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions before using air fresheners.

GUID-DE6A6C5A-ED9E-4300-A922-923666489FD6
Moisture
GUID-7FBD9AD0-A494-41FE-925A-A556AAC1FD1A
Accumulation of sand, dirt and water on
the vehicle body underside can accelerate
corrosion. Wet floor coverings will not dry
completely inside the vehicle, and should
be removed for drying to avoid floor panel
corrosion.
Relative humidity
GUID-790CCDC7-6B13-40A5-BC81-1395D1E39F89
Corrosion will be accelerated in areas of
high relative humidity, especially those
areas where the temperatures stay above
freezing where atmospheric pollution exists, or where road salt is used.
Temperature
GUID-EDC9DACB-1841-4023-9ED0-FBD31E105BD6
A temperature increase will accelerate the
rate of corrosion to those parts which are
not well ventilated.
CAUTION
.
NEVER remove dirt, sand or other debris
from the passenger compartment by
washing it out with a hose. Remove dirt
with a vacuum cleaner.
.
Never allow water or other liquids to
come in contact with electronic components inside the vehicle as this may
damage them.
Air pollution
GUID-70BE0465-57C4-480E-BA8E-73D881DEFA3E
Industrial pollution, the presence of salt in
the air in coastal areas, or heavy road salt
use will accelerate the corrosion process.
Road salt will also accelerate the disintegration of paint surfaces.
TO PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE FROM
CORROSIONGUID-4521457A-D90E-41D2-9632-6C44281C5DB1
. Wash and wax your vehicle often to
keep the vehicle clean.
. Always check for minor damage to the
paint and repair it as soon as possible.
. Keep drain holes at the bottom of the
doors open to avoid water accumulation.
. Check the underbody for accumulation
of sand, dirt or salt. If present, wash
with water as soon as possible.
Chemicals used for road surface deicing
are extremely corrosive. They accelerate
corrosion and deterioration of underbody
components such as the exhaust system,
fuel and brake lines, brake cables, floor
pan and fenders.
In winter, the underbody must be cleaned
periodically.
For additional protection against rust and
corrosion, which may be required in some
areas, consult an INFINITI retailer.

For your convenience, both required and
optional scheduled maintenance items are
described and listed in your “INFINITI
Service and Maintenance Guide”. You must
refer to that guide to ensure that necessary
maintenance is performed on your INFINITI
at regular intervals.
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
GUID-4173B2B1-D0A4-4C18-873E-ABF420155377
General maintenance includes those items
which should be checked during normal
day-to-day operation. They are essential for
proper vehicle operation. It is your responsibility to perform these procedures regularly as prescribed.
Performing general maintenance checks
requires minimal mechanical skill and only
a few general automotive tools.
These checks or inspections can be done
by yourself, a qualified technician or, if you
prefer, an INFINITI retailer.
WHERE TO GO
FOR SERVICE
GUID-5EA3938F-7396-4FA7-AFB1-B920B6B8F9F9

Exhaust system: Make sure there are no
loose supports, cracks or holes. If the
sound of the exhaust seems unusual or
there is a smell of exhaust fumes, immediately have the exhaust system inspected by an INFINITI retailer. (See
“Precautions when starting and driving”
(P.5-3) for exhaust gas (Carbon monoxide).)

vehicle has been parked for a while. Water
dripping from the air conditioner after use
is normal. If you should notice any leaks or
if gasoline fumes are evident, check for the
cause and have it corrected immediately.
Power steering fluid level* and lines:
Check the level with the engine off. Check
the lines for proper attachment, leaks,
cracks, etc.
Radiator and hoses: Check the front of the
radiator and clean off any dirt, insects,
leaves, etc., that may have accumulated.
Make sure the hoses have no cracks,
deformation, rot or loose connections.
Underbody: The underbody is frequently
exposed to corrosive substances such as
those used on icy roads or to control dust.
It is very important to remove these
substances, otherwise rust will form on
the floor pan, frame, fuel lines and around
the exhaust system. At the end of winter,
the underbody should be thoroughly
flushed with plain water, being careful to
clean those areas where mud and dirt may
accumulate. For additional information,
see “Cleaning exterior” (P.7-2).
Windshield washer fluid*: Check that there
is adequate fluid in the reservoir.
When performing any inspection or maintenance work on your vehicle, always take
care to prevent serious accidental injury to
yourself or damage to the vehicle. The
following are general precautions which
should be closely observed.
.
It is advisable to secure or remove any
loose clothing and remove any jewelry,
such as rings, watches, etc. before
working on your vehicle.
.
Always wear eye protection whenever
you work on your vehicle.
.
If you must run the engine in an
enclosed space such as a garage, be
sure there is proper ventilation for
exhaust gases to escape.
.
Be sure the ignition switch is in the OFF
or LOCK position when performing any
parts replacement or repairs.
Never get under the vehicle while it is
supported only by a jack. If it is
necessary to work under the vehicle,
support it with safety stands.
.
Never connect or disconnect the battery
or any transistorized component while
the ignition switch is in the ON position.
Keep smoking materials, flame and
sparks away from fuel tank and the
battery.
.
Your vehicle is equipped with an automatic engine cooling fan. It may come on
at any time without warning, even if the
ignition key is in the OFF position and
the engine is not running. To avoid
injury, always disconnect the negative
battery cable before working near the
fan.

and tools away from moving fans, belts
and any other moving parts.
Park the vehicle on a level surface, apply
the parking brake securely and block the
wheels to prevent the vehicle from
moving. For manual transmission models, move the shift lever to N (Neutral).
For automatic transmission models,
move the selector lever to P (Park).
.
Never leave the engine or automatic
transmission related component harnesses disconnected while the ignition
switch is in the ON position.
.
If you must work with the engine
running, keep your hands, clothing, hair

.
The fuel filter or fuel lines should be
serviced by an INFINITI retailer because
the fuel lines are under high pressure
even when the engine is off.
CAUTION
.
Do not work under the hood while the
engine is hot. Turn the engine off and
wait until it cools down.
.
Avoid direct contact with used engine oil
and coolant. Improperly disposed engine
oil, coolant, and/or other vehicle fluids
can damage the environment. Always
conform to local regulations for disposal
of vehicle fluid.

ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM
GUID-EE54D4F6-5F4A-4B0F-A147-7A9330E7ABCF
The engine cooling system is filled at the
factory with a pre-diluted mixture of 50%
Genuine NISSAN Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant (blue) and 50% water to provide yearround anti-freeze and coolant protection.
The antifreeze solution contains rust and
corrosion inhibitors. Additional engine
cooling system additives are not necessary.
WARNING
.
Never remove the radiator or coolant
reservoir cap when the engine is hot.
Wait until the engine and radiator cool
down. Serious burns could be caused by
high pressure fluid escaping from the
radiator. See precautions in “If your
vehicle overheats” (P.6-16) of this manual.
.
The radiator is equipped with a pressure
type radiator cap. To prevent engine
damage, use only a genuine NISSAN
radiator cap.
8-8
Maintenance and do-it-yourself
CAUTION
.
Never use any cooling system additives
such as radiator sealer. Additives may
clog the cooling system and cause
damage to the engine, transmission
and/or cooling system.
.
When adding or replacing coolant, be
sure to use only Genuine NISSAN Long
Life Antifreeze/Coolant (blue) or equivalent. Genuine NISSAN Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant (blue) is pre-diluted to
provide antifreeze protection to −348F
(−378C). If additional freeze protection is
needed due to weather where you
operate your vehicle, add Genuine
NISSAN Long Life Antifreeze/Coolant
(blue) concentrate following the directions on the container. If an equivalent
coolant other than Genuine NISSAN Long
Life Antifreeze/Coolant (blue) is used,
follow the coolant manufacturer’s instructions to maintain minimum antifreeze protection to −348F (−378C). The
use of other types of coolant solutions
other than Genuine NISSAN Long Life
Antifreeze/Coolant (blue) or equivalent
may damage the engine cooling system.
.
The life expectancy of the factory-fill
coolant is 105,000 miles (168,000 km)
or 7 years. Mixing any other type of
coolant other than Genuine NISSAN Long
Life Antifreeze/Coolant (blue), including
Genuine NISSAN Long Life Antifreeze/
Coolant (green), or the use of nondistilled water will reduce the life
expectancy of the factory-fill coolant.
Refer to the INFINITI Service and Maintenance Guide for more details.
If the cooling system frequently requires
coolant, have it checked by an INFINITI
retailer.
Engine coolant must be disposed of
properly. Check your local regulations.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System
(TPMS)
GUID-92F1DBE9-C4EF-4679-8E12-AEDD5231258D
This vehicle is equipped with the Tire
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). It
monitors tire pressure of all tires except
the spare. When the low tire pressure
warning light is lit and the CHECK TIRE
PRESSURE warning appears on the dot
matrix liquid crystal display, one or more
of your tires is significantly under-inflated.
The TPMS will activate only when the
vehicle is driven at speeds above 16 MPH
(25 km/h). Also, this system may not
detect a sudden drop in tire pressure (for
example a flat tire while driving).
For more details, see “Low tire pressure
warning light” (P.2-12), “Tire Pressure
Monitoring System (TPMS)” (P.5-4) and
“Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)”
(P.6-2).
Tire inflation
pressure
GUID-1E5BCB99-CF5B-436E-822C-36E9EA89ED84
Check the pressure of the tires
(including the spare) often and al-
ways prior to long distance trips. The
recommended tire pressure specifications are shown on the Tire and
Loading Information label under the
“Cold Tire Pressure” heading. The
Tire and Loading Information label is
affixed to the driver side center pillar.
Tire pressures should be checked
regularly because:
. Most tires naturally lose air over
time.
. Tires can lose air suddenly when
driven over potholes or other
objects or if the vehicle strikes a
curb while parking.
The tire pressures should be checked
when the tires are cold. The tires are
considered COLD after the vehicle
has been parked for 3 or more hours,
or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km) at
moderate speeds.
Incorrect tire pressure, including
under inflation, may adversely affect
tire life and vehicle handling.
WARNING
. Improperly inflated tires can fail
suddenly and cause an accident.
. The Gross Vehicle Weight rating
(GVWR) is located on the F.M.V.S.
S./C.M.V.S.S. label. The vehicle
weight capacity is indicated on
the Tire and Loading Information
label. Do not load your vehicle
beyond this capacity. Overloading
your vehicle may result in reduced
tire life, unsafe operating conditions due to premature tire failure,
or unfavorable handling characteristics and could also lead to a
serious accident. Loading beyond
the specified capacity may also
result in failure of other vehicle
components.
. Before taking a long trip, or
whenever you heavily load your
vehicle, use a tire pressure gauge
to ensure that the tire pressures

Use of tire chains may be prohibited
according to location. Check the local laws
before installing tire chains. When installing tire chains, make sure they are the
proper size for the tires on your vehicle and
are installed according to the chain manufacturer’s suggestions. Use only SAE
Class S chains. Class “S” chains are used
on vehicles with restricted tire to vehicle
clearance. Vehicles that can use Class “S”
chains are designed to meet the SAE
standard minimum clearances between
the tire and the closest vehicle suspension
or body component required to accommodate the use of a winter traction device (tire
chains or cables). The minimum clearances
are determined using the factory equipped
tire size. Other types may damage your
vehicle. Use chain tensioners when recommended by the tire chain manufacturer to
ensure a tight fit. Loose end links of the
tire chain must be secured or removed to
prevent the possibility of whipping action
damage to the fenders or underbody. If
possible, avoid fully loading your vehicle
when using tire chains. In addition, drive at
a reduced speed. Otherwise, your vehicle
may be damaged and/or vehicle handling
If snow tires are needed, it is necessary to
select tires equivalent in size and load
rating to the original equipment tires. If
you do not, it can adversely affect the
safety and handling of your vehicle.
Generally, snow tires will have lower speed
ratings than factory equipped tires and
may not match the potential maximum
vehicle speed. Never exceed the maximum
speed rating of the tire.
If you install snow tires, they must be the
same size, brand, construction and tread
pattern on all four wheels.
For additional traction on icy roads,
studded tires may be used. However, some
U.S. states and Canadian provinces prohibit their use. Check local, state and
provincial laws before installing studded
tires. Skid and traction capabilities of

wheels and original tire used on the rear
wheels (drive wheels). Use tire chains
only on the two rear original tires.
.
Tire tread of the TEMPORARY USE ONLY
spare tire will wear at a faster rate than
the standard tire. Replace the spare tire
as soon as the tread wear indicators
appear.
WARNING
.
.
.
The T-type spare tire should be used for
emergency use. It should be replaced
with the standard tire at the first
opportunity to avoid possible tire or
differential damage.
Drive carefully while the TEMPORARY
USE ONLY spare tire is installed. Avoid
sharp turns and abrupt braking while
driving.
Periodically check spare tire inflation
pressure. Always keep the pressure of
the TEMPORARY USE ONLY spare tire at
60 psi (420 kPa, 4.2 bar). Always keep
the pressure of the full size spare tire (if
so equipped) at the recommended pres-
8-38
Maintenance and do-it-yourself
With the TEMPORARY USE ONLY spare
tire installed do not drive your vehicle at
speeds faster than 50 MPH (80 km/h).
.
Do not use the spare tire on other
vehicles.
.
Do not use more than one spare tire at
the same time.
CAUTION
.
Do not use tire chains on a TEMPORARY
USE ONLY spare tire. Tire chains will not
fit properly and may cause damage to
the vehicle.
.
Because the TEMPORARY USE ONLY
spare tire is smaller than the original
tire, ground clearance is reduced. To
avoid damage to the vehicle, do not
drive over obstacles. Also do not drive
the vehicle through an automatic car
wash since it may get caught.
Emergency tire puncture repair kit
(if so equipped)
GUID-FAD28AE4-EFCF-49D5-B78F-E11D9F52D1B1
The emergency tire puncture repair kit
(Emergency Tire Sealant) is supplied with
the vehicle instead of a spare tire. It can be
used to temporarily repair minor tire
punctures.
If possible, have the vehicle towed to a
facility that can repair or replace the flat
tire. Using the emergency tire puncture
repair kit may cause a malfunction of the
tire pressure sensor and cause the low tire
pressure warning light to illuminate.
See “Flat tire” (P.6-2) for more details.

Use unleaded premium gasoline with an
octane rating of at least 91 AKI (Anti-Knock
Index) number (Research octane number
96).
If premium gasoline is not available,
unleaded regular gasoline with an octane
rating of 87 AKI number (Research octane
number 91) may be temporarily used, but
only under the following precautions:
. Have the fuel tank filled only partially
with unleaded regular gasoline, and fill
up with unleaded premium gasoline as
soon as possible.
. Avoid full throttle driving and abrupt
acceleration.
However, for maximum vehicle performance, the use of unleaded premium
gasoline is recommended.
CAUTION
.
9-4
Using a fuel other than that specified
could adversely affect the emission
control system, and may also affect
warranty coverage.
Technical and consumer information
.
Under no circumstances should a leaded
gasoline be used, because this will
damage the three-way catalyst.
Do not use E-85 fuel in your vehicle. Your
vehicle is not designed to run on E-85
fuel. Using E-85 fuel can damage the fuel
system components and is not covered
by the INFINITI vehicle limited warranty.
Gasoline specifications
GUID-DC5EBB8E-4309-49CA-B420-EC02637A87FB
INFINITI recommends using gasoline that
meets the World-Wide Fuel Charter (WWFC)
specifications where it is available. Many
of the automobile manufacturers developed this specification to improve emission system and vehicle performance. Ask
your service station manager if the gasoline meets the World-Wide Fuel Charter
(WWFC) specifications.
Reformulated
gasoline
GUID-219272A9-E868-427B-AE5E-D1FC55A1EF42
Some fuel suppliers are now producing
reformulated gasolines. These gasolines
are specially designed to reduce vehicle
emissions. INFINITI supports efforts towards cleaner air and suggests that you
use reformulated gasoline when available.
Gasoline containing
oxygenates
GUID-485DABCD-B3C9-4464-A7DA-50A021D72D80
Some fuel suppliers sell gasoline containing oxygenates such as ethanol, MTBE and
methanol with or without advertising their
presence. INFINITI does not recommend the
use of fuels of which the oxygenate content
and the fuel compatibility for your INFINITI
cannot be readily determined. If in doubt,
ask your service station manager.
If you use oxygenate-blend gasoline,
please take the following precautions as
the usage of such fuels may cause vehicle
performance problems and/or fuel system
damage.
. The fuel should be unleaded and have
an octane rating no lower than that
recommended for unleaded gasoline.
. If an oxygenate-blend, excepting a
methanol blend, is used, it should
contain no more than 10% oxygenate.
(MTBE may, however, be added up to
15%.)
. If a methanol blend is used, it should
contain no more than 5% methanol
(methyl alcohol, wood alcohol). It
should also contain a suitable amount
of appropriate cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors. If not properly formulated with appropriate cosolvents and
corrosion inhibitors, such methanol
blends may cause fuel system damage
and/or vehicle performance problems.
At this time, sufficient data is not
available to ensure that all methanol
blends are suitable for use in INFINITI
vehicles.
If any undesirable driveability problems
such as engine stalling or hard hot starting
are experienced after using oxygenateblend fuels, immediately change to a
non-oxygenate fuel or a fuel with a low
blend of MTBE.
Take care not to spill gasoline during
refueling. Gasoline containing oxygenates
can cause paint damage.
E-85 fuel
GUID-E80ADFC3-9E29-4E93-9DFA-C473E4854F8A
E-85 fuel is a mixture of approximately
85% fuel ethanol and 15% unleaded
gasoline. E-85 can only be used in a
Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV). Do not use E85 fuel in your vehicle. U.S. government
regulations require fuel ethanol dispensing
pumps to be identified by a small, square,
orange and black label with the common
abbreviation or the appropriate percentage
for that region.
AftermarketGUID-511317C7-4DF3-4C2C-A81B-F6771C931D09
fuel additives
INFINITI does not recommend the use of
any aftermarket fuel additives (Example:
fuel injector cleaner, octane booster, intake
valve deposit removers, etc.) which are
sold commercially. Many of these additives
intended for gum, varnish or deposit
removal may contain active solvent or
similar ingredients that can be harmful to
the fuel system and engine.
above symptoms are encountered, have
your vehicle checked at an INFINITI retailer
or other competent service facility.
However, now and then you may notice
light spark knock for a short time while
accelerating or driving up hills. This is no
cause for concern, because you get the
greatest fuel benefit when there is light
spark knock for a short time under heavy
engine load.
Octane rating
tips
GUID-FF7F51AB-6CE5-4893-AEC1-750B862FF0AF
Using unleaded gasoline with an octane
rating lower than recommended above can
cause persistent, heavy spark knock.
(Spark knock is a metallic rapping noise.)
If severe, this can lead to engine damage.
If you detect a persistent heavy spark
knock even when using gasoline of the
stated octane rating, or if you hear steady
spark knock while holding a steady speed
on level roads, have an INFINITI retailer
correct the condition. Failure to correct the
condition is misuse of the vehicle, for
which INFINITI is not responsible.
Incorrect ignition timing will result in
knocking, after-run or overheating. This in
turn may cause excessive fuel consumption
or damage to the engine. If any of the

GUID-F52EE258-6ADA-49F3-A839-FCF212BBD17B
The oil and oil filter change intervals for
your engine are based on the use of the
specified quality oils and filters. Oil and
filter other than the specified quality, or oil
and filter change intervals longer than
recommended could reduce engine life.
Damage to engines caused by improper
maintenance or use of incorrect oil and
filter quality and/or viscosity is not covered
by the new INFINITI vehicle limited warranties.
Your engine was filled with a high quality
engine oil when it was built. You do not
have to change the oil before the first
recommended change interval. Oil and
filter change intervals depend upon how
you use your vehicle. Operation under the
following conditions may require more
frequent oil and filter changes.
. repeated short distance driving at cold
outside temperatures,
. driving in dusty conditions,
. extensive idling,
. stop and go “rush hour” traffic,

weightdoes not include passengers and cargo.
GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight) - curb
weight plus the combined weight
of passengers and cargo.
GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) - maximum total combined
weight of the unloaded vehicle,
passengers, luggage, hitch, trailer
tongue load and any other optional equipment. This information is located on the F.M.V.S.S./

of the load (passengers and cargo) for the vehicle. This is the
maximum combined weight of
occupants and cargo that can be
loaded into the vehicle. If the
vehicle is used to tow a trailer,
the trailer tongue weight must be
included as part of the cargo load.
This information is located on the

VEHICLE LOAD
CAPACITY
GUID-69EFC661-5277-4332-B1F2-AE9E453B2BA0
Do not exceed the load limit of your
vehicle shown as “The combined
weight of occupants and cargo” on
the Tire and Loading Information
label. Do not exceed the number of
occupants shown as “Seating Capacity” on the Tire and Loading Information label.
To get “the combined weight of
occupants and cargo”, add the
weight of all occupants, then add
the total luggage weight. Examples
are shown in the illustration.
Steps for determining correct load
limit
GUID-83E2AD6E-0268-4507-924F-F5E14B3CE53F
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
1400 lbs. and there will be five
150 lb. passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo
and luggage load capacity is 650
lbs. (1400 − 750 (5 x 150) = 650
lbs or 640 − 340 (5 x 70) = 300
kg.)
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.
Before driving a loaded vehicle,
confirm that you do not exceed the
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)
or the Gross Axle Weight Rating
(GAWR) for your vehicle. (See “Measurement of weights” (P.9-20).)
Also check tires for proper inflation
pressures. See the Tire and Loading
Information label.
LOADING TIPS
GUID-FE9B5593-CAC3-4828-9578-88327F3E0DAF
. The GVW must not exceed GVWR
or GAWR as specified on the F.M.V.
S.S./C.M.V.S.S. certification label.
. Do not load the front and rear axle
to the GAWR. Doing so will exceed
the GVWR.
WARNING
. Properly secure all cargo to help
prevent it from sliding or shifting.
Do not place cargo higher than the
seatbacks. In a sudden stop or
collision, unsecured cargo could
cause personal injury.
. Do not load your vehicle any
heavier than the GVWR or the
maximum front and rear GAWRs.
If you do, parts of your vehicle can
break, tire damage could occur, or
it can change the way your vehicle
handles. This could result in loss
of control and cause personal
injury.
. Overloading could not only shorten the life of your vehicle and the
tires, but also could lead to
hazardous vehicle handling and
long braking distance. This may
cause a premature tire malfunction, which could result in a
serious accident and personal injury. Failures caused by overloading are not covered by the
vehicle’s warranty.

MEASUREMENT
OF WEIGHTS
GUID-93BC7735-498A-4D30-8D82-02BCA761EB77
Secure loose items to prevent weight
shifts that could affect the balance of
your vehicle. When the vehicle is
loaded, drive to a scale and weigh
the front and the rear wheels separately to determine axle loads. Individual axle loads should not
exceed either of the gross axle
weight ratings (GAWR). The total of
the axle loads should not exceed the
gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR).
These ratings are given on the
vehicle certification label. If weight
ratings are exceeded, move or remove items to bring all weights
below the ratings.

Technical and consumer information
Do not tow a trailer with your
vehicle.
FLAT TOWING
GUID-1A5DE173-BB7F-45B0-A5B0-F0DB053F125D
Towing your vehicle with all four wheels on
the ground is sometimes called flat towing.
This method is sometimes used when
towing a vehicle behind a recreational
vehicle, such as a motor home.
CAUTION
.
Failure to follow these guidelines can
result in severe transmission damage.
.
Whenever flat towing your vehicle, always tow forward, never backward.
.
DO NOT tow any automatic transmission
vehicle with all four wheels on the
ground (flat towing). Doing so WILL
DAMAGE internal transmission parts
due to lack of transmission lubrication.
.
For emergency towing procedures refer
to “Towing recommended by INFINITI”
(P.6-18) of this manual.
Automatic transmission
GUID-967E7021-7B09-40D8-BF80-AEAB3F63F03B
To tow a vehicle equipped with an automatic transmission, an appropriate vehicle
dolly MUST be placed under the towed
vehicle’s drive wheels. Always follow the
dolly manufacturer’s recommendations
when using their product.
Manual transmission
GUID-C066DC0F-F9A6-4CD6-A341-CE5F2EB3898C
. Always tow with the manual transmission in Neutral.
. Your vehicle speed should never exceed
70 MPH (112 km/h) when flat towing
your vehicle.
. After towing 500 miles, start and idle
the engine with the transmission in
Neutral for two minutes. Failure to idle
the engine after every 500 miles of
towing may cause damage to the
transmission’s internal parts.
UNIFORM TIRE QUALITY GRADING
GUID-4DCAB315-AC66-4A49-A484-5C2927B4F2E4
DOT (Department Of Transportation) Quality Grades: All passenger car tires must
conform to federal safety requirements in
addition to these grades.
Quality grades can be found where applicable on the tire sidewall between tread
shoulder and maximum section width. For
example:
Treadwear 200 Traction AA Temperature A
TREADWEARGUID-61A676A7-9B91-4A79-A32F-E8D628C55791
The treadwear grade is a comparative
rating based on the wear rate of the tire
when tested under controlled conditions
on a specified government test course. For
example, a tire graded 150 would wear one
and one-half (1 1/2) times as well on the
government course as a tire graded 100.
The relative performance of tires depends
upon actual conditions of their use, however, and may depart significantly from the
norm due to variations in driving habits,
service practices and differences in road
characteristics and climate.
TRACTION AA,
A, B AND C
GUID-BA7990B4-C685-4A1D-A234-3E4A1FA8B404
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B and C. Those grades
represent the tire’s ability to stop on wet
pavement as measured under controlled
conditions on specified government test
surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire
marked C may have poor traction performance.
WARNING
The traction grade assigned to this tire is
based on straight-ahead braking traction
tests, and does not include acceleration,
cornering, hydroplaning, or peak traction
characteristics.
tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a
level of performance which all passenger
car tires must meet under the Federal
Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109.
Grades B and A represent higher levels of
performance on the laboratory test wheel
than the minimum required by law.
WARNING
The temperature grade for this tire is
established for a tire that is properly
inflated and not overloaded. Excessive
speed, under-inflation, or excessive loading,
either separately or in combination, can
cause heat build-up and possible tire failure.
TEMPERATURE
A, B AND C
GUID-7A8C8273-BED1-4908-B544-D79557E7C502
The temperature grades A (the highest), B,

required to be in what is called the “ready
condition” for an Inspection/Maintenance
(I/M) test of the emission control system.
The vehicle is set to the “ready condition”
when it is driven through certain driving
patterns. Usually, the “ready condition”
can be obtained by ordinary usage of the
vehicle.
If a powertrain system component is
repaired or the battery is disconnected,
the vehicle may be reset to a “not ready
condition”. Before taking the I/M test,
check the vehicle’s inspection/maintenance test readiness condition. Place the
ignition switch in the ON position without
starting the engine. If the Malfunction
Indicator Light (MIL) comes on steady for
20 seconds and then blinks for 10
seconds, the I/M test condition is “not
ready”. If the MIL does not blink after 20
seconds, the I/M test condition is “ready”.
Contact an INFINITI retailer to set the
“ready condition” or to prepare the vehicle
for testing.

EVENT DATA RECORDERS (EDR)
GUID-9023DE11-7F99-4014-8B76-63304941B6C9
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 air
bag 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.
. Sounds are not recorded.
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 nontrivial crash situation occurs; no
data are recorded by the EDR under normal
driving conditions and no personal data
9-24
Technical and consumer information
GUID-19D5C887-4796-4FEC-856C-8B97CA64084B
(e.g. 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 and INFINITI
retailer, other parties, such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they
have access to the vehicle or the EDR. EDR
data will only be accessed with the
consent of the vehicle owner or lessee or
as otherwise required or permitted by law.

.
Use unleaded premium gasoline with an
octane rating of at least 91 AKI (Anti-Knock
Index) number (Research octane number
96).
Under no circumstances should a leaded
gasoline be used, since this will damage
the three way catalyst.
.
Do not use E-85 fuel in your vehicle. Your
vehicle is not designed to run on E-85
fuel. Using E-85 fuel can damage the fuel
system components and is not covered
by the INFINITI vehicle limited warranty.
If premium gasoline is not available,
unleaded regular gasoline with an octane
