Owner’s Manual
Black plate (3,1)
Foreword
GUID-5A04CF95-E0E6-4709-8CAB-124C89524786
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.

The Active Head Restraint moves forward
utilizing the force that the seatback receives from the occupant in a rear-end
collision. The movement of the head
restraint helps support the occupant’s
head by reducing its backward movement
and helping absorb some of the forces that
may lead to whiplash-type injuries.
Active Head Restraints are effective for
collisions at low to medium speeds in
which it is said that whiplash-type injury
occurs most.

PRECAUTIONS
ON SEAT BELT USAGE
GUID-4D30048F-6AB3-4FEA-957F-23C643DABF4C
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
.
.
Every person who drives or rides in this
vehicle should use a seat belt at all
times. Children should be properly restrained in the rear seat and, if appropriate, in a child restraint.
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.
.
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.
.
Always route the shoulder belt over your
shoulder and across your chest. Never
run 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.
See an INFINITI retailer.
.
Removal and installation of the pretensioner seat belt system components
.
should be done by an INFINITI retailer.
.
All seat belt assemblies, including retractors and attaching hardware, should
be inspected after any collision by an
INFINITI retailer. INFINITI recommends
that all seat belt assemblies in use
during a collision be replaced unless
the collision was minor and the belts
show no damage and continue to operate properly.
Seat belt assemblies not in use during a
collision should also be inspected and
replaced if either damage or improper
operation is noted.
.
All child restraints and attaching hardware should be inspected after any
collision. Always follow the restraint
manufacturer’s inspection instructions
and replacement recommendations. The
child restraints should be replaced if
they are damaged.

.
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.

2. Slowly pull the seat belt out of the
retractor and insert the tongue into 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.1-23).
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.
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.

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:
. 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

obtain proper seat belt fit.
A child restraint may be secured in the
vehicle by using either the LATCH (Lower
Anchor and Tethers for CHildren) system or
with the vehicle seat belt. See “Child
restraints” (P.1-23) 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 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.
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.1-41).
INFANTS
GUID-81981691-E72A-4BD1-8C1F-5BB0437EDCA7
Infants up to at least 1 year old should be

Failure to follow the warnings and
instructions for proper use and installation of child restraints could result in
serious injury or death of a child or other
passengers in a sudden stop or collision:
— The child restraint must be used and
installed properly. Always follow all
of the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions for installation and use.
— Infants and children should never be
held on anyone’s lap. Even the
strongest adult cannot resist the
forces of a collision.
— Do not put a seat belt around both a
child and another passenger.
SSS0100
— INFINITI recommends that all child
restraints be installed in the rear
seat. Studies show that children are
safer when properly restrained in the
rear seat than in the front seat. If you
must install a forward-facing child
restraint in the front seat, see “For-
ward-facing child restraint installation using the seat belts” (P.1-33).
— 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.
— A child restraint with a top tether
strap should not be used in the front
passenger seat.
— Keep seatbacks as upright as possible after fitting the child restraint.
— Infants and children should always
be placed in an appropriate child
restraint while in the vehicle.

for infants and small children of various
sizes. When selecting any child restraint,
keep the following points in mind:
. Choose only a restraint with a label
certifying that it complies with Federal
Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 or
Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.
. Check the child restraint in your vehicle
to be sure it is compatible with the
vehicle’s seat and seat belt system.
. If the child restraint is compatible with
your vehicle, place your child in the
child restraint and check the various
adjustments to be sure the child
restraint is compatible with your child.
Choose a child restraint that is designed for your child’s height and
weight. Always follow all recommended
procedures.
All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or
territories require that infants and small
children be restrained in an approved child
restraint at all times while the vehicle is
being operated. Canadian law requires the
top tether strap on forward-facing child
restraints be secured to the designated
anchor point on the vehicle.

1. If you must install a child restraint in
the front seat, it should be placed in a
forward-facing direction only. Move the
seat to the rearmost position. Child
restraints for infants must be used in
the rear-facing direction and, therefore,
must not be used in the front seat.

Forward-facing — step 3
3. Route the seat belt tongue through the
child restraint and insert it into the
buckle until you hear and feel the latch
engage. Be sure to follow the child
restraint manufacturer’s instructions
for belt routing.
If the child restraint is equipped with a
top tether strap, route the top tether
strap and secure the tether strap to the
tether anchor point (rear seat installation only). See “Installing top tether
strap” (P.1-37). Do not install child
restraints that require the use of a top
tether strap in seating positions that do
not have a top tether anchor.

collisions. The curtain air bags are designed to inflate on the side where the
vehicle is impacted.
These supplemental restraint systems are
designed to supplement the crash protection provided by the driver and passenger
seat belts and are not a substitute for
them. Seat belts should always be correctly worn and the occupant seated a
suitable distance away from the steering
wheel, instrument panel and door finishers. (See “Seat belts” (P.1-14) for
instructions and precautions on seat belt
usage.)
The supplemental air bags operate only
when the ignition switch is in the ON
position.
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 systems are operational.

WARNING
.
The supplemental front air bags ordinarily will not inflate in the event of a side
impact, rear impact, rollover, or lower
severity frontal collision. Always wear
your seat belts to help reduce the risk or
severity of injury in various kinds of
accidents.
.
The front passenger air bag will not
inflate if the passenger air bag status
light is lit or if the front passenger seat
is unoccupied. See “Front passenger air
bag and status light” (P.1-49).
.
The seat belts and the supplemental
front air bags are most effective when
you are sitting well back and upright in
the seat with both feet on the floor. The
front air bags inflate with great force.
Even with the INFINITI advanced air bag
system, if you are unrestrained, leaning
forward, sitting sideways or out of
position in any way, you are at greater
risk of injury or death in a crash. You
may also receive serious or fatal injuries
from the supplemental front air bag if
you are up against it when it inflates.
Always sit back against the seatback

Always use the seat belts.
.
The driver and front passenger seat belt
buckles are equipped with sensors that
detect if the seat belts are fastened. The
Advanced Air Bag System monitors the
severity of a collision and seat belt
usage then inflates the air bags as
needed. Failure to properly wear seat
belts can increase the risk or severity of
injury in an accident.
.
The front passenger seat is equipped
with an occupant classification sensor
(pattern sensor) that turns the front
passenger air bag OFF under some
conditions. This sensor is only used in
this seat. Failure to be properly seated
and wearing the seat belt can increase
the risk or severity of injury in an
accident. See “Front passenger air bag
and status light” (P.1-49).

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.

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.1-49) for further details.) One front air
bag inflating does not indicate improper
performance of the system.

mation is contained in the front of this
Owner’s Manual.
The front air bags deflate quickly after a
collision.
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.
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.
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.
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
the risk of injury if the occupant is too
close to, or is against, the air bag module
during inflation.

The front passenger air bag is designed to
automatically turn OFF when the vehicle is
operated under some conditions as described below as permitted by U.S. regulations. If the front passenger air bag is OFF,
it will not inflate in a crash. The driver air
bag and other air bags in your vehicle are
not part of this system.
The purpose of the regulation is to help
reduce the risk of injury or death from an
inflating air bag to certain front passenger
seat occupants, such as children, by
requiring the air bag to be automatically
turned OFF.
The occupant classification sensor (pattern
sensor) is in the front passenger seat
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
Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system
[ Edit: 2012/ 1/ 17 Model: V36-D ]

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 restraints 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.1-23) for proper use and
1-50
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.

GUID-5F61E6E2-F68B-4488-A88B-BF098637A002
The side air bags are located in the outside
of the seatback of the front seats. The
curtain air bags are located in the side roof
rails. These systems are designed to meet
voluntary guidelines to help reduce the risk
of injury to out-of-position occupants.
However, all of the information, cautions
and warnings in this manual still apply
and must be followed. The side air bags

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
and rear outboard seating positions. They
can help save lives and reduce serious
injuries. However, an inflating side air bags

and curtain air bags 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. Rear seat passengers should
be seated as far away as practical from the
door finishers and side roof rails. The side
air bags and curtain 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.
The side air bags and curtain air bags
operate only when the ignition switch is in
the ON position.
After pushing the ignition switch to the ON
position, the supplemental air bag warning light illuminates. The air bag warning
light will turn off after about 7 seconds if
the systems are operational.

such as seat covers, around the side air
bags.
WARNING
.
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 damage to or accidental
inflation of the side air bag and curtain
air bag systems.
.
Do not make unauthorized changes to
your vehicle’s electrical system, suspension system or side panel. This could
affect proper operation of the side air
bag and curtain air bag systems.

Tampering with the air bag system may
result in serious personal injury. For
example, do not change the front seats
by placing material near the seatback or

ZONE VARIATION CHANGE PROCEDURE
GUID-E09E8E8D-3C27-49AC-9DF4-41F27EDC4D72
The difference between magnetic north and
geographical north is known as variance.
In some areas, this difference can sometimes be great enough to cause false
compass readings. Follow these instructions to set the variance for your particular
location if this happens:
1. Push the
switch for more than 3
seconds. The current zone number will
appear in the display.
2. Find your current location and variance
number on the zone map.
3. Push the
switch repeatedly until
the new zone number appears in the
display, then release the switch. After
you release the switch, the display will
show a compass direction within a few
seconds.
. If the compass deviates from the
correct indication soon after repeated adjustment, have the compass checked at an INFINITI retailer.
. The compass may not indicate the
correct compass point in tunnels or
while driving up or down a steep hill.
(The compass returns to the correct
CAUTION
.
Do not install a ski rack, antenna, etc.,
which are attached to the vehicle by
means of a magnet. They affect the
operation of the compass.

XENON HEADLIGHTS
GUID-8467C3F9-1393-492A-B09D-23AF70810C36
WARNING
HIGH VOLTAGE
.
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.
CAUTION
SIC3239
Type A
When cleaning the inner side of the rear
window, be careful not to scratch or damage
the rear window defroster.
When the xenon headlight is initially
turned on, its brightness or color varies
slightly. However, the color and brightness
will soon stabilize.
SIC3278
Type B
. The life of xenon headlights will be
shortened by frequent on-off operation.

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

HomeLink® UNIVERSAL TRANSCEIVER (if so
equipped)
GUID-0BF67760-C562-4D9A-8217-C1A104712017
HomeLink® Universal Transceiver provides
a convenient way to consolidate the functions of up to three individual hand-held
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.2-60).
.
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.

PROGRAMMING
HomeLink®
GUID-C1A6C78C-5674-4502-BB48-800218FBC19E
To program your HomeLink® Transceiver to
operate a garage door, gate, or entry door
opener, home or office lighting, you need
to be at the same location as the device.
Note: Garage door openers (manufactured
after 1996) have “rolling code protection”.
To program a garage door opener equipped
with “rolling code protection”; you will
need to use a ladder to get up to the
garage door opener motor to be able to
access the “smart or learn” program
button.
SIC3612
1. To begin, push and hold the 2 outer
HomeLink® buttons (to clear the memA blinks
ory) until the indicator light *
(after 20 seconds). Release both buttons.
2. Position the end of the hand-held
transmitter 1-3 inches away from the
HomeLink® surface.

SIC3613
3. Using both hands, simultaneously push
and hold both the HomeLink® button
you want to program and the hand-held
transmitter button.
DO NOT release the buttons until step 4
has been completed.
4. Hold down both buttons until the
indicator light on HomeLink® flashes,
changing from a “slow blink” to a
“rapid blink”. This could take up to 90
seconds. When the indicator light
blinks rapidly, both buttons may be
released. The rapidly flashing light
indicates successful programming. To
activate the garage door or other

programmed device, push and hold the
programmed HomeLink® button - releasing when the device begins to
activate.
®
5. If the indicator light on HomeLink
blinks rapidly for two seconds and then
turns solid, HomeLink® has picked up a
“rolling code” garage door opener
signal. You will need to proceed with
the next steps to train HomeLink®,
completing the programming may require a ladder and another person for
convenience.
6. Push and release the program button
located on the garage door opener’s
motor to activate the “training mode”.
This button is usually located near the
antenna wire that hangs down from the
motor. If the wire originates from under
a light lens, you will need to remove the
lens to access the training button.
NOTE:
Once you have pushed and released
the training button on the garage door
opener’s motor and the “training light”
is lit, you have 30 seconds in which to
perform step 7. For convenience, use
the help of a second person to assist
when performing this step.
7. Quickly (within 30 seconds of pushing
and releasing the garage door opener
training button) and firmly push and
release the HomeLink® button you’ve
just programmed. Push and release the
HomeLink® button up to three times to
complete the training.
8. Your HomeLink® button should now be
programmed. To program the remaining
HomeLink® buttons for additional door
or gate openers, follow steps 2 through
8 only.
NOTE:
Do not repeat step 1 unless you want to
“clear” all previously programmed
HomeLink® buttons.
If you have any questions or are having
difficulty programming your HomeLink®
buttons, please refer to the HomeLink®
web site at: www.homelink.com or call 1800-355-3515.

WARNING
.
.
Radio waves could adversely affect
electric medical equipment. Those who
use a pacemaker should contact the
electric medical equipment manufacturer
for the possible influences before use.
The Intelligent Key transmits radio
waves when the buttons are pushed.
The FAA advises that the radio waves
may affect aircraft navigation and communication systems. Do not operate the
Intelligent Key while on an airplane.
Make sure the buttons are not operated
unintentionally when the unit is stored
during a flight.
The Intelligent Key system can operate all
the doors and the trunk lid using the
remote controller function or pushing the
request switch on the vehicle without
taking the key out from a pocket or purse.
The operating environment and/or conditions may affect the Intelligent Key system
operation.
Be sure to read the following before using
the Intelligent Key system.
CAUTION
.
Be sure to carry the Intelligent Key with
you when operating the vehicle.
.
Never leave the Intelligent Key in the
vehicle when you leave the vehicle.
The Intelligent Key is always communicating with the vehicle as it receives radio
waves. The Intelligent Key system transmits weak radio waves. Environmental
conditions may interfere with the operation
of the Intelligent Key system under the
following operating conditions.
. When operating near a location where
strong radio waves are transmitted,
such as a TV tower, power station and
broadcasting station.
. When in possession of wireless equipment, such as a cellular telephone,
transceiver, and CB radio.
. When the Intelligent Key is in contact
with or covered by metallic materials.
. When any type of radio wave remote
control is used nearby.
. When the Intelligent Key is placed near
an electric appliance such as a perso-
nal computer.
. When the vehicle is parked near a
parking meter.
In such cases, correct the operating conditions before using the Intelligent Key
function or use the mechanical key.
Although the life of the battery varies
depending on the operating conditions,
the battery’s life is approximately 2 years.
If the battery is discharged, replace it with
a new one.
When the Intelligent Key battery is almost
discharged, insert the Intelligent Key into
the Intelligent Key port to start the engine.
Replace the discharged battery with a new
one as soon as possible. For more details,
see “Push-button ignition switch” (P.5-9).
Since the Intelligent Key is continuously
receiving radio waves, if the key is left near
equipment which transmits strong radio
waves, such as signals from a TV and
personal computer, the battery life may
become shorter.
For information regarding replacement of a
battery, see “Intelligent Key battery replacement” (P.8-26).

This system is designed so that the driver’s
seat and steering column will automatically move when the automatic transmission selector lever is in the P (Park)
position. This allows the driver to get into
and out of the driver’s seat more easily.
The selector lever must be in the P (Park)
position with the ignition switch in the OFF
position.
The driver’s seat will slide backward and
the steering wheel will move up when the
driver’s door is opened with the ignition
switch in the LOCK position.
The indicator lights on the memory
switches (1 and 2) will blink once when
the function is canceled, and the indicator
lights will blink twice when the function is
activated. Note that the indicator lights
may illuminate after 5 seconds while
holding the SET switch. This indicates
readiness for linking the Intelligent Key to
a stored memory position. Keep the SET
switch pressed for more than 10 seconds
to turn on or off the entry/exit function.
The driver’s seat and steering wheel will

SEAT SYNCHRONIZATION
FUNCTION
GUID-44A9BCE7-C5A3-4DE5-84C7-DAFAF434BFA8
The seat synchronization function automatically adjusts the positions of the steering
wheel and outside mirrors when the seat is
adjusted using the power seat switches.
However, the steering wheel and outside
mirrors will not move if the seat is adjusted
over the maximum thresholds. The system
considers that the steering wheel and
outside mirror adjustments are not necessary because the seat may not be adjusted
for the driving position. Note that the
function is set to disabled as the factory
default setting.
. The ignition switch is in the ON position.
. The selector lever is in the P (Park)
position (Automatic Transmission models) or the parking brake is applied
(Manual Transmission models).
. The seatback is raised (Coupe).
If the outside mirrors or the steering wheel
reaches its maximum adjustment, the
function is automatically disabled. Restart
the function by selecting a previously
stored seat memory position using the
memory switches (1 or 2). An Intelligent
Key that was previously linked to the
stored seat memory can also be used to
restart the function.
If a seat position was not previously stored
in the seat memory, restart the function by
adjusting the steering wheel and outside
mirrors manually for your best driving
position and then drive the vehicle above
4 MPH (7 km/h).

TIPS
To turn ON or OFF the predictive course line
display, push the SETTING button, select
the “Camera” key and push the ENTER
button.
. When the selector/shift lever is shifted
to the “R” (Reverse) position, the
monitor screen automatically changes
to the rearview monitor mode. However, the radio can be heard.
. 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.
. Predictive Course Lines
When this item is turned to ON, the
predicted course lines will be displayed
on the monitor when the selector/shift

When the engine coolant temperature and
outside air temperature are low, the air
flow from the foot outlets may not operate
for a maximum of 150 seconds. This is not
a malfunction. After the coolant temperature warms up, air will flow normally from

The climate control system in your INFINITI
is charged with a refrigerant designed with
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.)

your environmentally friendly climate control system.
WARNING
The system contains refrigerant under high
pressure. To avoid personal injury, any air
conditioner service should be done only by
an experienced technician with the proper
equipment.

the radio with the engine not running, the
ignition switch should be pushed to the
ACC position.
Radio reception is affected by station

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.

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
4-42
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-
cles exist.
Static: Caused by thunderstorms, electrical
power lines, electric signs and even traffic
lights.
Satellite radioGUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
reception (if so equipped):
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
satellite antenna.
A build up of ice on the satellite radio
antenna can affect satellite radio performance. Remove the ice to restore satellite
radio reception.

Explanation of
terms:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
. 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.
. 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

Your INFINITI is equipped with Bluetooth®
Streaming Audio. If you have a compatible
Bluetooth® device with streaming audio
(A2DP profile), you can set up the wireless
connection between your Bluetooth® device and the in-vehicle audio system. This
connection allows you to listen to the
audio from the Bluetooth® device using
your vehicle speakers. It also may allow
basic control of the device for playing and
skipping audio files using the AVRCP
Bluetooth® profile. All Bluetooth® Devices
do not have the same level of controls for
AVRCP. Please consult the manual for your
Bluetooth® Device for more details.
Once your Bluetooth® device is connected
to the in-vehicle audio system, it will
automatically reconnect whenever the device is present in the vehicle and you select
Bluetooth® Audio from your audio system.
You do not need to manually reconnect for
each usage.
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 commu-
nication and cause undesired noise. It is
recommended that you turn off the wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) when using the Bluetooth®
functions.

Solution
1. Ensure that the command is valid. (See “INFINITI Voice Recognition system (models with navigation system)” (P.4-114).)
2. Ensure that the command is spoken after the tone.
System fails to interpret the command
correctly.
3. Speak clearly without pausing between words and at a level appropriate to the ambient noise level in the vehicle.
4. Ensure that the ambient noise level is not excessive (for example, windows open or defroster on). NOTE: If it is too noisy to
use the phone, it is likely that the voice commands will not be recognized.
5. If more than one command was said at a time, try saying the commands separately.
The system consistently selects the
wrong voicetag.
1. Ensure that the voicetag requested matches what was originally stored. (See “Vehicle phonebook” (P.4-93).)
2. Replace one of the names being confused with a new name.

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.4-106) 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
system announces the available commands.
. When you speak numbers, you can
speak both “zero” or “oh” for “0”.

numbers:
INFINITI Voice Recognition requires a certain way to speak numbers when giving
voice commands. Refer to the following
examples.
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

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

automatically request that you repeat
the number using the 3-3-4 format. In
this case please say the area code first
and then follow the prompts.
. Do not add a “1” in front of the area
code when speaking phone numbers.
. If the system does not recognize your
command, please try repeating the
command using a natural voice. Speaking too slow or too loudly may further
decrease recognition performance.
NOTE:
. You can also speak “800-662-6200”
(10 continuous digits) or “662-6200”
(7 continuous digits), if the area code
is not necessary. However, the 3-3-4
digit grouping is recommended for

PRECAUTIONS WHEN STARTING AND
DRIVING
GUID-39788F85-F09A-4F03-A86A-9971096F7435
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-FE83F1BB-566B-418F-8146-74C3A55C538A
.
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.

it to overheat. Do not keep driving if the
engine misfires, or if noticeable loss of
performance or other unusual operating
conditions are detected. Have the vehicle
inspected promptly by an INFINITI retailer.
The three-way catalyst is an emission
control device installed in the exhaust
system. Exhaust gases in the three-way
catalyst are burned at high temperatures to
help reduce pollutants.
WARNING
.
.
The exhaust gas and the exhaust system
are very hot. Keep people, animals or
flammable materials away from the
exhaust system components.
Do not stop or park the vehicle over
flammable materials such as dry grass,
waste paper or rags. They may ignite and
cause a fire.
CAUTION
.
Do not use leaded gasoline. Deposits
from leaded gasoline seriously reduce
the three-way catalyst’s ability to help
reduce exhaust pollutants.
.
Keep your engine tuned up. Malfunctions
in the ignition, fuel injection, or electrical systems can cause overrich fuel

Do not push or tow your vehicle to start
the engine.
TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)GUID-01A54468-A798-4FEE-AB71-4E7737FDCB1C
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 your 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
Starting and driving
[ Edit: 2012/ 1/ 17 Model: V36-D ]
Black plate (325,1)
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-80EA0255-F871-460E-BDF5-E3C4E75931D0
. 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.2-15) 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.
Some devices and transmitters may temporarily interfere with the operation of the
TPMS and cause the low tire pressure
warning light to illuminate. Some examples are:
. Facilities or electric devices using similar radio frequencies are near the
vehicle.
. If a transmitter set to similar frequencies is being used in or near the
vehicle.
. If a computer (or similar equipment) or
a DC/AC converter is being used in or
near the vehicle.
FCC Notice:
For USA:
CAUTION
.
The TPMS may not function properly
when the wheels are equipped with tire
chains or the wheels are buried in snow.
.
Do not place metalized film or any metal
parts (antenna, etc.) on the windows.
This may cause poor reception of the
signals from the tire pressure sensors,
and the TPMS will not function properly.

AVOIDING COLLISION AND ROLLOVER
GUID-EE5BC752-B37C-479E-857D-032EF1A955FA
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.1-14) 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 GUID-55350CDC-B327-47DB-A929-95DDE2B6F88F
RECOVERY
If the right side or left side wheels may
unintentionally leave the road surface.
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 GUID-F6877DBB-5B63-45D0-9CA2-EC1F801DC510
PRESSURE LOSS
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.8-33) of
this manual.
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.

DRINKING ALCOHOL/DRUGS AND
DRIVING GUID-9FACE374-80C0-473A-AF0E-37D9C4BE0B25
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.

The detection range of the sensor is
approximately 390 ft (120 m) ahead.
WARNING
.
This system is only an aid to assist the
driver and is not a collision warning or
avoidance device. It is the driver’s
responsibility to stay alert, drive safely
and be in control of the vehicle at all
times.
.
The system is primarily intended for use
on straight, dry, open roads with light
traffic. It is not advisable to use the
system in city traffic or congested areas.
.
This system will not adapt automatically
to road conditions. This system should
be used in evenly flowing traffic. Do not
use the system on roads with sharp
curves, or on icy roads, in heavy rain or
in fog.
The distance sensor will not detect under
most conditions:
. Stationary and slow moving vehicles
. Pedestrians or objects in the roadway
. Oncoming vehicles in the same lane
. Motorcycles traveling offset in the travel
lane
This system will not automatically brake
the vehicle to a stop.
WARNING
.
.
As there is a performance limit to the
distance control function, never rely
solely on the Intelligent Cruise Control
system. This system does not correct
careless, inattentive or absent-minded
driving, or overcome poor visibility in
rain, fog, or other bad weather. Decelerate the vehicle speed by depressing the
brake pedal, depending on the distance
to the vehicle ahead and the surrounding circumstances in order to maintain a
safe distance between vehicles.
Although the brake operation is controlled by the system, the system does
not automatically stop the vehicle. If the
vehicle speed falls below approximately
20 MPH (32 km/h), the Intelligent Cruise
Control system is automatically canceled
and a warning chime sounds. (The brake
control is also canceled.)
.
The system may not detect the vehicle in
front of you in certain road or weather
conditions. To avoid accidents, never use
the Intelligent Cruise Control system
under the following conditions:
— On roads where the traffic is heavy
or there are sharp curves
— On slippery road surfaces such as
on ice or snow, etc.
— During bad weather (rain, fog, snow,
etc.)
When the windshield wiper is operated at the low speed (LO) or high
speed (HI) position, the Intelligent
Cruise Control system is automatically canceled.
— When strong light (for example, at
sunrise or sunset) is directly shining
on the front of the vehicle
— When rain, snow or dirt adhere to
the system sensor
— On steep downhill roads (the vehicle may go beyond the set vehicle
speed and frequent braking may
result in overheating the brakes)
— On repeated uphill and downhill

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.
The vehicle-to-vehicle distance control
mode is designed to maintain a selected
distance and reduce the speed to match
the slower vehicle ahead; the system will
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.
The system will cancel and a warning
chime will sound if the speed falls below
approximately 20 MPH (32 km/h). The
system will also disengage below the 20
MPH (32 km/h) cut-off speed or over the
maximum set speed.
See “Approach warning” (P.5-37).
The following items are controlled in the
vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode:
. When there are no vehicles traveling
ahead, the vehicle-to-vehicle distance
control mode maintains the speed set
by the driver. The set speed range is
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 vehi-

have to manually control the proper
distance away from vehicle traveling

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

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.
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.

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 feet (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 tone will sound continuously.
Keep the corner/center sonar (located on
the bumper fascia) free from snow, ice and
large accumulations of dirt (do not clean
the sonar with sharp objects). If the sonar
is covered, it will affect the accuracy of the
sonar system.
The sensitivity level of the corner/center

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.

specified size of tires on all four
wheels.

— For detailed information, see
“Wheels and tires” (P.8-33) 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.

sure that it is the proper size and
type as specified on the Tire and

WARNING
Do not pump the brake pedal. Doing so may
result in increased stopping distances.
Self-test feature
GUID-EC96AE96-D9F6-4F19-A5A9-937C4D6337A4
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-36C3BA08-72B5-4E9B-96CF-93CCD7FE6655
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

. The road may be slippery or the system
may determine some action is required
to help keep the vehicle on the steered

CLEANING EXTERIOR
GUID-9249DEB4-52C7-4AFC-8D03-6CF9D0E54C69
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.
GUID-836955BF-390D-4BD9-A9ED-E82B3D771DEA
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
must be taken when removing caked-on
dirt or other foreign substances so the
paint surface is not scratched or damaged.
Rinse the vehicle again 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-71C0704F-ABE3-4DDE-BBA8-904E37FD8A86
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.
7-2 Appearance and care
[ Edit: 2012/ 1/ 17 Model: V36-D ]
Black plate (401,1)
. 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.
REMOVINGGUID-6A92BAAD-C79F-4B71-AC08-B8D8170F5C52
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
GUID-235CB819-FCF9-47D3-B2C4-CF42120CA1E4
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.
GLASS
GUID-5D4F0140-EB2A-48A1-9AE9-32E16AC93BA3
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
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.
WHEELS
. INFINITI recommends that the road
wheels be waxed to protect against
road salt in areas where it is used
during winter.
CAUTION
Do not use abrasive cleaners when washing
the wheels.
Aluminum GUID-7407AEDF-85CD-42A8-BA1D-79993CC06EC3
alloy wheels
Wash regularly with a sponge dampened in

winter months in areas where road salt is
used. Salt could discolor the wheels if not
removed.
CAUTION
GUID-41803024-4AB1-47D5-838F-E8FDD80A7DF3
Wash the wheels when washing the vehicle
to maintain their appearance.
. Clean the inner side of the wheels when
the wheel is changed or the underside
of the vehicle is washed.
. Inspect wheel rims regularly for dents
or corrosion. Such damage may cause
loss of pressure or poor seal at the tire
bead.
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.

CHROME PARTS
GUID-C79FFE25-59C5-419E-9237-879139BCBF04
Clean chrome parts regularly with a nonabrasive chrome polish to maintain the
finish.
TIRE DRESSING
GUID-09CB5FA2-E9A2-41B9-AA7D-C91CDF0A574B
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).
7-4
. 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 manufacturer.
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
sensors. This can also affect the operation
of the air bag system and result in serious
personal injury.
Appearance and care
[ Edit: 2012/ 1/ 17 Model: V36-D ]
Black plate (403,1)
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-C6A06011-FC8F-4E60-988D-F01757F64AC4
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.

MOST COMMON FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO GUID-3B69BF24-842C-4193-8541-964011F92DDC
VEHICLE CORROSION
. The accumulation of moisture-retaining
dirt and debris in body panel sections,
cavities, and other areas.
. Damage to paint and other protective
coatings caused by gravel and stone
chips or minor traffic accidents.
ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS INFLUENCE THE RATE
OF CORROSION
GUID-40A1E323-8534-45DB-A599-5EFAED969FF5
Moisture
GUID-027B03C5-237A-4F0A-8536-0117E8BC5E85
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-3616F87C-F07F-44CB-A171-3215CC669846
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.
Periodically check to make certain that the
mats are properly positioned.

Temperature
GUID-246D2D79-4C02-402E-9F82-253795EB2C48
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-4BFD5430-CA7D-4539-87D3-A8165FDCDA5E
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
CORROSION
GUID-652024BB-1DF4-471C-8A1C-D87DE033F27A
. 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.

ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM
GUID-5C044D87-071E-4DD5-85C9-155F3106646B
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.6-10) of this manual.
.
The radiator is equipped with a pressure
type radiator cap. To prevent engine
damage, use only a genuine NISSAN
radiator cap.
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.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System
(TPMS)
GUID-54149EBD-6C2B-4EEC-AE1A-FDADBBA021B3
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.2-15), “Tire Pressure
Monitoring System (TPMS)” (P.5-4) and
“Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)”
(P.6-2).
Tire inflation
pressure
GUID-FDC2587E-609D-4595-9387-574BE1BDEAC6
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

squarely onto the valve stem. Do
not press too hard or force the
valve stem sideways, or air will
escape. If the hissing sound of air
escaping from the tire is heard
while checking the pressure, reposition the gauge to eliminate
this leakage.
3. Remove the gauge.
4. Read the tire pressure on the
gauge stem and compare it to
the specification shown on the
Tire and Loading Information label.
5. Add air to the tire as needed. If
too much air is added, press the
core of the valve stem briefly with
the tip of the gauge stem to
release pressure. Recheck the
pressure and add or release air
as needed.
6. Install the valve stem cap.

Snow tiresGUID-1B1B74F7-B51D-4FB4-94BD-BD6E5230D2DC
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.
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

INFINITI specifies all season tires on some
models to provide good performance all
year, including snowy and icy road conditions. All Season tires are identified by ALL
SEASON and/or M&S (Mud and Snow) on
the tire sidewall. Snow tires have better
snow traction than All Season tires and
may be more appropriate in some areas.
Summer tires
GUID-560BBD79-0719-4B8B-AF1C-4D895DD18219
INFINITI specifies summer tires on some
models to provide superior performance on
dry roads. Summer tire performance is
substantially reduced in snow and ice.
Summer tires do not have the tire traction
rating M&S on the tire sidewall.
If you plan to operate your vehicle in snowy
or icy conditions, INFINITI recommends the
use of SNOW tires or ALL SEASON tires on
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
studded snow tires, on wet or dry surfaces,
may be poorer than that of non-studded
snow tires.

VQ25HR engine
GUID-DECF13E8-0D22-45CE-9350-2A04A0BCABEB
INFINITI recommends the use of unleaded
premium gasoline with an octane rating of
at least 91 AKI (Anti-Knock Index) number
(Research octane number 96).
If unleaded premium gasoline is not
available, you may use unleaded regular
gasoline with an octane rating of at least
87 AKI number (Research octane number
91), but you may notice a decrease in
performance.
VQ37VHR engine
GUID-62D6EF4E-F486-46EA-A1E0-D4BB9121EA3A
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.
9-4
. Avoid full throttle driving and abrupt
acceleration.
However, for maximum vehicle performance, the use of unleaded premium
gasoline is recommended.
CAUTION
.
Using a fuel other than that specified
could adversely affect the emission
control system, and may also affect
warranty coverage.
.
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-E8A76FAE-F1E8-41BA-ACCF-E439B6733579
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-21D3DE2D-574C-45D2-AE5B-28DCCCBF286C
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-ABC4FC82-F0F7-44E4-BDD3-2D84252E0A47
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.
Technical and consumer information
[ Edit: 2012/ 1/ 17 Model: V36-D ]
Black plate (455,1)
. 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-BE764F0C-6A10-497C-B4F9-CD1D0E122DA3
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-663D952D-0F24-4D6E-ABBF-21302053695C
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.
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
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-527A0AB1-299D-45DA-9B92-4DDA2444B93C
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
CAUTION

Selecting the
correct oil
GUID-7E56B07C-FA31-476B-909A-6FD2C08A7626
It is essential to choose the correct grade,
quality, and viscosity engine oil to ensure
satisfactory engine life and performance,
see “Capacities and recommended fuel/
lubricants” (P.9-2). INFINITI recommends
the use of an energy conserving oil in
order to improve fuel economy.
Select only engine oils that meet the
9-6
American Petroleum Institute (API) certification or International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC)
certification and SAE viscosity standard.
These oils have the API certification mark
on the front of the container. Oils which do
not have the specified quality label should
not be used as they could cause engine
damage.
Oil additives
GUID-11AD1E70-8EAE-4D70-880A-3AA3882862D5
INFINITI does not recommend the use of oil
additives. The use of an oil additive is not
necessary when the proper oil type is used
and maintenance intervals are followed.

filter quality and/or viscosity is not covered
by the new INFINITI vehicle limited warranties.
Oil viscosity
GUID-6FE50DBA-A088-4DF7-B955-855B7BC409B7
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.
The engine oil viscosity or thickness
changes with temperature. Because of this,
it is important that the engine oil viscosity
be selected based on the temperatures at
which the vehicle will be operated before
the next oil change. Choosing an oil
viscosity other than that recommended
could cause serious engine damage.
Selecting the
correct oil filter
GUID-FFA0543F-C4EE-4AB0-A3D3-B35085A1CBFE
Your new vehicle is equipped with a highquality genuine NISSAN oil filter. When
replacing, use the genuine oil filter or its
equivalent for the reason described in
change intervals.
Change intervals
GUID-9DC392AF-E881-459C-941F-E42A7567649C
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
. repeated short distance driving at cold
outside temperatures,
. driving in dusty conditions,
. extensive idling,
. stop and go “rush hour” traffic,
Refer to the “INFINITI Service and Maintenance Guide” for the maintenance schedule.
AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM REFRIGERANT AND LUBRICANT RECOMMENDATIONS
GUID-A6645D62-AEB6-4D99-B362-51EC90BEBB5E
CAUTION
The use of any other refrigerant or lubricant
will cause severe damage to the air conditioning system and will require the replacement of all air conditioner system
components.
The refrigerant HFC-134a (R-134a) in your
INFINITI vehicle will not harm the earth’s
ozone layer. Although this refrigerant does
not affect the earth’s atmosphere, certain
governmental regulations require the recovery and recycling of any refrigerant
during automotive air conditioning system
service. Your INFINITI retailer has the
trained technicians and equipment needed
to recover and recycle your air conditioning
system refrigerant.
Contact an INFINITI retailer when servicing
your air conditioning system.
The air conditioning system in your
INFINITI vehicle must be charged with the
refrigerant HFC-134a (R-134a) and the
lubricant, NISSAN A/C system oil Type S
or the exact equivalents.

If you plan to travel in another country,
you should first find out if the fuel
available is suitable for your vehicle’s
engine.
Using fuel with too low an octane rating
may cause engine damage. All gasoline
vehicles must be operated with unleaded
gasoline. Therefore, avoid taking your
vehicle to areas where appropriate fuel is
not available.
When transferring the registration of your
vehicle to another country, state, province
or district, it may be necessary to modify
the vehicle to meet local laws and regulations.
The laws and regulations for motor vehicle
emission control and safety standards vary
according to the country, state, province or
district; therefore, vehicle specifications
may differ.
When any vehicle is to be taken into
another country, state, province or district
and registered, its modifications, transportation, and registration are the responsibility of the user. INFINITI is not
responsible for any inconvenience that
may result.

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.

VEHICLE LOAD
CAPACITY
GUID-16EB8F06-6588-4DB3-AD19-F995D969E737
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-B83A4859-8D1F-4DE0-BA0C-340F84D79632
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.
Technical and consumer information
[ Edit: 2012/ 1/ 17 Model: V36-D ]
9-21
Black plate (472,1)
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.9-23).)
Also check tires for proper inflation
pressures. See the Tire and Loading
Information label.
LOADING TIPS
GUID-E6D7CA83-EA67-4B48-B261-156FACE4D953
. 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.

OF WEIGHTS
GUID-50D1912A-C00F-4ED3-8ACC-D24A0397214B
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.
Your vehicle was designed to be used to
carry passengers and cargo. INFINITI does
not recommend trailer towing, because it
places additional loads on your vehicle’s
engine, drivetrain, steering, braking, and
other systems.
CAUTION
.
Failure to follow these guidelines can
result in severe transmission damage.
An INFINITI Towing Guide (U.S. only) is
available on the website at
.
Whenever flat towing your vehicle, always tow forward, never backward.
www.InfinitiUSA.com. This guide includes
information on trailer towing capability and
the special equipment required for proper
towing.
.
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.
.
DO NOT tow an All-Wheel Drive (AWD)
vehicle with any of the wheels on the
ground. Doing so may cause serious and
expensive damage to the powertrain.

the engine after every 500 miles of
towing may cause damage to the
transmission’s internal parts.
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-499F0B52-9319-4A2F-9811-B95040CBA836
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-06FD06F1-0BA4-4FE2-98C0-CCD1E9E9D435
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.

GUID-9C3875F5-7E59-4991-892A-95438AAA2114
A vehicle equipped with All-Wheel Drive
(AWD) should never be tested using a two
wheel dynamometer (such as the dynamometers used by some states for emissions
testing), or similar equipment. Make sure
you inform test facility personnel that your
vehicle is equipped with AWD before it is
placed on a dynamometer. Using the
wrong test equipment may result in transmission damage or unexpected vehicle
movement which could result in serious
vehicle damage or personal injury.
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:
Due to legal requirements in some states/
areas, your vehicle may be 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.
. 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

(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

INFINITI recommends the use of unleaded
premium gasoline with an octane rating of
at least 91 AKI (Anti-Knock Index) number
(Research octane number 96).
If unleaded premium gasoline is not
available, you may use unleaded regular
gasoline with an octane rating of at least
87 AKI number (Research octane number
91), but you may notice a decrease in
performance.
. Avoid full throttle driving and abrupt
acceleration.
However, for maximum vehicle performance, the use of unleaded premium
gasoline is recommended.
CAUTION
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:
. Engine oil with API Certification Mark
. Viscosity SAE 5W-30
See “Capacities and recommended fuel/
lubricants” (P.9-2) for engine oil and oil
filter recommendation.
COLD TIRE PRESSURES:
GUID-959E7B8F-7B50-4AFD-8817-D07D3757D905
.
Using a fuel other than that specified
could adversely affect the emission
control systems, and may also affect
warranty coverage.
The label is typically located on the driver
side center pillar or on the driver’s door.
For additional information, see “Wheels
and tires” (P.8-33).
.
Under no circumstances should a leaded
gasoline be used, since this will damage
the three way catalyst.
NEW VEHICLE BREAK-IN PROCEDURES RECOMMENDATION:
GUID-BA3159B7-2BCC-4411-A559-5871D6C9235F
.
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.
