shift lever in Drive (D) to temporarily override
an automatic gear selection.
See Driving and Operating in your Owner Manual.
13
MANUAL TRANSMISSION OPERATION
The 6-speed manual transmission includes a 1-to-4 shift feature that helps achieve the
best possible fuel economy. The
shift light will turn on when the following qualifications are met: engine coolant temperature is higher than 169°F (76°C), vehicle speed is
15-19 mph (24-31 km/h), and the vehicle is at 21% throttle or less. When the shift light is
on, the transmission can be shifted only from 1st to 4th gear. Forcing the shift lever into
any other gear may damage the transmission.
See Driving and Operating in your Owner Manual.
TIRES
Run-Flat Tires
The run-flat tires eliminate the need for a spare tire. The tire design enables safe function
during and after loss of pressure for some distance at a moderate speed. Driving only a
short distance with a loss of pressure increases the chance that the tire can be repaired.
Contact Roadside Assistance as soon as possible for the nearest run-flat tire servicing
facility to have the tire inspected.
Tire Pressure Monitor
The Tire Pressure Monitor alerts you when a significant reduction in pressure occurs in
one or more of your vehicle’s tires by illuminating the Low Tire Pressure warning light
on the instrument cluster. The warning light will remain on until the tire pressure is corrected. Current tire pressures can be displayed using the Driver Information Center. The
proper tire pressures for your vehicle are listed on the Tire and Loading Information label,
located below the driver’s door latch.
During cooler weather, the low tire pressure warning light may appear when the vehicle is
first started and then turn off as the vehicle is driven. This may be an early indicator that
tire pressures are getting low and the tires need to be inflated to the proper pressure.
Note: The Tire Pressure Monitor can alert you about low tire pressure, but it doesn’t replace normal
monthly tire maintenance. It is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressures.
See Vehicle Care in your Owner Manual.
PREMIUM FUEL
Your vehicle’s engine was designed to use premium unleaded gasoline. See the Owner
Manual for information on fuel use for your particular vehicle.
See Driving and Operating in your Owner Manual.
CAR WASH GUIDELINES
Automatic car washes are not recommended. They may cause damage to the vehicle,
wheels or convertible top✦. To avoid possible damage, use a touchless car wash.
See Vehicle Care in your Owner Manual.
