ADDITIONAL FEATURES Easy Fuel™ ‘no cap’ fuel system Your vehicle has a ‘no cap’ fuel system which allows you to simply open the fuel filler door, insert the nozzle and start fueling. The Easy Fuel™ System is self-sealing and therefore protected against dust, dirt, water, snow and ice. If you need to fill your fuel tank with a portable fuel container, use the fuel funnel which is located behind the second row driver seat, near the spare tire tool box. Slowly insert the funnel into the Easy Fuel™ system and fill the tank with fuel from the container. When done, clean the funnel or properly dispose of it. Extra funnels can be purchased from your authorized dealer. Do not use aftermarket funnels as they will not work with the Easy Fuel™ system and may cause damage. Fuel Type / Tank Capacity / Flex Fuel Your vehicle is equipped with either a 26 gallon (98.4L) or a 36 gallon (136.2L) fuel tank. You may have a Flex Fuel Vehicle. Flex Fuel vehicles have a yellow ring around the top of the fuel filler inlet (tube) and can use either Regular unleaded fuel, E85 Ethanol Fuel or any mixture of the two. If you do not have a flex fuel vehicle, then only use “Regular” unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 87. Do not use E85 fuels, because your vehicle was not designed to run on fuels with more than 10% ethanol. 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 the spare). As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that when illuminates a low tire pressure warning light 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 information.

Hold the steering wheel firmly and slowly move to a safe place on the side of the road. Your vehicle is equipped with a temporary spare tire located under the vehicle, just forward of the rear bumper. The temporary spare is designed for emergency use only and should be replaced as soon as possible.
