THIRTEEN
(IF EQUIPPED)
Your vehicle may be equipped with All Wheel Drive (AWD).
The AWD system is always active and uses all four wheels to
power the vehicle. This increases traction, enabling you to
drive over terrain and road conditions that a conventional twowheel drive vehicle cannot. Refer to your Owner’s Guide for
more information. Note: If your vehicle is equipped with AWD,
a spare tire of a different size (other than the tire provided)
should never be used. Using a different size could cause the
AWD system to stop functioning and default to front wheel
drive. Your vehicle is not intended for off-road use.
TIRE PRESSURE
Your tire pressure is properly set at the dealership
according to the recommended specifications found on
the Safety Compliance Certification Label or Tire Label
located on the B-Pillar or the edge of the driver’s door.
Check your tire pressure at least once a month and
before long trips (including spare). As an added safety
feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates
a low tire pressure warning light
when one or more
of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Improperly
inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail
suddenly, possibly resulting in loss of vehicle control.
Refer to the Tires, Wheels and Loading chapter in your
Owner’s Guide for more details and safety information.
ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE
