For your information
Main Owners Manual
Please note that this manual applies to all models explains and all equip−
ment, including options. Therefore, you may find some explanations for
equipment not installed on your vehicle.
All specifications provided in this manual are current at the time of printing.
However, because of the Toyota policy of continual product improvement, we
reserve the right to make changes at any time without notice.
Depending on specifications, the vehicle shown in the illustrations may differ
from your vehicle in terms of equipment.
Accessories, spare parts and modification of your Toyota
A wide variety of non−genuine spare parts and accessories for Toyota
vehicles are currently available in the market. You should know that Toyota
does not warrant these products and is not responsible for their
performance, repair, or replacement, or for any damage they may cause to,
or adverse effect they may have on, your Toyota vehicle.
This vehicle should not be modified with non−genuine Toyota products.
Modification with non−genuine Toyota products could affect its performance,
safety or durability, and may even
violate governmental regulations. In
addition, damage or performance problems resulting from the modification
may not be covered under warranty.
Installation of a mobile two−way radio system
As the installation of a mobile two−way radio system in your vehicle could
affect electronic systems such as the multiport fuel injection system/sequen−
tial multiport fuel injection system, cruise control system, anti−lock brake sys−
tem, SRS airbag system and seat belt pretensioner system, be sure to check
with your Toyota dealer for precautionary measures or special instructions
regarding installation.
22
Scrapping your Toyota
The SRS airbag and seat belt pretensioner devices in your Toyota contain
explosive chemicals. If the vehicle is scrapped with the airbags and seat belt
pretensioners left as they are, this may cause an accident such as fire. Be
sure to have the systems of the SRS airbag and seat belt pretensioner
removed and disposed of by a qualified service shop or by your Toyota
dealer before you scrap your vehicle.
Perchlorate Material
Special handling may apply,
See www.dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/perchlorate.
Your vehicle has components that may contain perchlorate. These compo−
nents may include airbag, seat belt pretensioners, and wireless remote con−
trol batteries.
CAUTION
General precautions while driving
Driving under the influence: Never drive your vehicle when under the influ−
ence of alcohol or drugs that have impaired your ability to operate your vehi−
cle. Alcohol and certain drugs delay reaction time, impair judgment and
reduce coordination, which could lead to an accident that will hurt or kill you,
your occupants or others.
Defensive driving: Always drive defensively. Anticipate mistakes that other
drivers or pedestrians might make and be ready to avoid accidents.
Driver distraction: Always give your full attention to driving. Anything that dis−
tracts the driver, such as adjusting controls, talking on a cellular phone or
reading can result in a collision with resulting death or serious injury to you,
your occupants or others.
23
CAUTION
General precaution regarding children’s safety
Never leave children unattended in the vehicle, and never allow children to
have or use the key.
Children may be able to start the vehicle or shift the vehicle into neutral.
There is also a danger that children may injure themselves by playing with
the cigarette lighter, the windows, or other features of the vehicle. In addi−
tion, heat build−up or extremely cold temperatures inside the vehicle can be
fatal to children.

Pregnant women
Obtain medical advice and wear the seat
belt in the proper way. ( P. 51)
Women who are pregnant should position
the lap belt as low as possible over the
hips in the same manner as other occu−
pants. Extend the shoulder belt com−
pletely over the shoulder and position the
belt across the chest. Avoid belt contact
over the rounding of the abdominal area.
If the seat belt is not worn properly, not
only a pregnant woman, but also the fetus
could suffer death or serious injury as a
result of sudden braking or a collision.
People suffering illness
Obtain medical advice and wear the seat belt in the proper way.
Child seat belt usage
The seat belts of your vehicle were principally designed for persons of adult
size.
Use a child restraint system appropriate for the child, until the child
become large enough to properly wear the vehicle’s seat belt. ( P. 90)
When the child becomes large enough to properly wear the vehicle’s seat
belt, follow the instructions on P. 51 regarding seat belt usage.
53
Before driving
When a passenger’s shoulder belt is completely extended and then
retracted even slightly, the belt is locked in that position and cannot be
extended. This feature is used to hold the child restraint system (CRS) firmly.
To free the belt again, fully retract the belt and then pull the belt out once
more. ( P. 90)
1−3. Adjustable components (seats, mirrors, steering wheel)
Replacing the belt after the pretensioner has been activated
The seat belts cannot be used after a pretensioner has been activated. After
an accident, have the pretensioners inspected by your Toyota dealer. Make
sure the pretensioners are replaced if they have been activated.
Seat belt extender
If your seat belts cannot be fastened
securely because they are not long
enough, a personalized seat belt
extender is available from your Toyota
dealer free of charge.
CAUTION
Wearing a seat belt
Observe the following precautions to reduce the risk of injury in the event of
sudden braking or an accident.
Failing to do so may cause death or severe injury.
Ensure that all passengers wear a seat belt.
Always wear a seat belt properly.
Each seat belt should be used by one person only. Do not use a seat belt
for more than one person at once, including children.
Toyota recommends that children be seated in the rear seat and always
use a seat belt and/or an appropriate child restraint system.
Do not recline the seat any more than necessary to achieve a proper seat−
ing position. The seat belt is most effective when the occupants are sitting
up straight and well back in the seats.
Do not wear the shoulder belt under your arm.
Always wear your seat belt low and snug across your hips.

Seat belt damage and wear
Do not damage the seat belts by allowing the belt, plate, or buckle to be
jammed in the door.
Inspect the seat belt system periodically. Check for cuts, fraying, and loose
parts. Do not use a damaged seat belt until it is replaced. Damaged seat
belt cannot protect an occupant from death or serious injury.
Ensure that the belt and tab are locked and the belt is not twisted.
If the seat belt does not function correctly, immediately contact your Toyota
dealer.
Replace the seat assembly, including the belts, if your vehicle has been
involved in a serious accident, even if there is no obvious damage.
Do not attempt to install, remove, modify, disassemble or dispose of the
seat belts. Have any necessary repairs carried out by your Toyota dealer.
Inappropriate handling of the pretensioner may prevent it from operating
properly resulting in death or serious injury.
Using a seat belt extender
Do not wear the seat belt extender, if you can fasten the seat belt without
the extender.
Do not use the seat belt extender when installing a child restraint system,
because the belt will not securely hold the child restraint system, increas−
ing the risk of death or serious injury in the event of a collision.
The personalized extender may not be safe on another vehicle, when
used by another person, or at a different seating position other than the
one originally intended.
55

tem controls airbag deployment po wer for the driver and front pas−
senger. The driver airbag system consists of the driver seat’s position
sensor etc. The front passenger’s airbag system consists of the front 1
passenger occupant classification sensor etc.
In certain types of severe frontal or side impacts, the SRS airbag sys−
tem triggers the airbag inflators. A chemical reaction in the inflators
quickly fills the airbags with non−toxic gas to help rest rain the motion
of the occupants.

The front windshield may crack.
75
Before driving
The main SRS airbag system components are shown above. The
SRS airbag system is controlled by the airbag sensor assembly. The
airbag sensor assembly consists of a safing sensor and an airbag
sensor.
1−7. Safety information
Operating conditions (front airbags)
The SRS front airbags will deploy if the severity of the frontal impact is
above the designed threshold level, comparable to an approximate 15
mph (25 km/h) collision when the vehicle impacts straight into a fixed bar−
rier that does not move or deform.
However, this threshold velocity will be considerably higher if the vehicle
strikes an object, such as a parked vehicle or sign pole, which can move or
deform on impact, or if the vehicle is involved in an underride collision (e.g.
a collision in which the front of the vehicle “underrides”, or goes under, the
bed of a truck, etc.).
It is possible that in some collisions where the forward deceleration of the
vehicle is very close to the designed threshold level, the SRS front air−
bags and the seat belt pretensioners may not activate together.
The SRS front passenger airbag will not activate if there is no passenger
sitting in the front passenger seat. However, the front passenger airbag
may deploy if luggage is put in the seat, even if the seat is unoccupied.
( P. 8 5 )
Operating conditions (side airbags and curtain shield airbags)
The SRS side airbags and curtain shield airbags are designed to inflate
when the passenger compartment is subjected to a severe impact from
the side.
The SRS side airbag on the passenger seat will not activate if there is no
passenger sitting in the front passenger seat. However, the side airbag
on the passenger seat may deploy if luggage is put in the seat, even if
the seat is unoccupied. ( P. 85)
76

CAUTION
SRS airbag precautions
Observe the following precautions regarding the airbags.
Failure to do so may cause death or serious injury.
The driver and all passengers in the vehicle must wear their seat belts
properly.
The SRS airbags are supplemental devices to be used with the seat belts.
The SRS driver airbag deploys with considerable force, and can cause
death or serious injury especially if the driver is very close to the airbag.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) advises:
Since the risk zone for driver airbag is the first 2 − 3 in. (50 − 75 mm) of infla−
tion, placing yourself 10 in. (250 mm) fr om your driver airbag provides you
with a clear margin of safety. This distance is measured from the center of
the steering wheel to your breastbone. If you sit less than 10 in. (250 mm)
away now, you can change your driving position in several ways:
S Move your seat to the rear as far as you can while still reaching the
pedals comfortably.
S Slightly recline the back of the seat.
Although vehicle designs vary, many drivers can achieve the 10 in.
(250 mm) distance, even with the driver seat all the way forward, sim−
ply by reclining the back of the seat somewhat. If reclining the back of
your seat makes it hard to see the road, raise yourself by using a firm,
non−slippery cushion, or raise the seat if your vehicle has that feature.
S If your steering wheel is adjustable, tilt it downward. This points the air−
bag toward your chest instead of your head and neck.
The seat should be adjusted as recommended by NHTSA above, while still
maintaining control of the foot pedals, steering wheel, and your view of the
instrument panel controls.
80
1−7. Safety information
CAUTION
SRS airbag precautions
The SRS front passenger airbag also deploys with considerable force, and
can cause death or serious injury especially if the front passenger is very
close to the airbag. The front passenger seat should be as far from the air−
bag as possible with the seatback adjusted, so the front passenger sits
upright.
Improperly seated and/or restrainedinfants and children can be killed or
seriously injured by a deploying airbag. An infant or child who is too small
to use a seat belt should be properly secured using a child restraint sys−
tem. Toyota strongly recommends that all infants and children be placed in
the rear seats of the vehicle and properly restrained. The rear seats are
the safest for infants and children. ( P. 90)
81
1
Before driving
If the seat belt extender has been con−
nected to the driver ’s seat belt buckle
but the seat belt extender has not also
been fastened to the latch plate of the
driver ’s seat belt, the SRS driver ’s air−
bag system will judge that the driver is
wearing the seat belt even though the
seat belt has not been connected. In
this case, the driver ’s airbag may not
activate correctly in a collision, resulting
in death or serious injury in the event of
collision. Be sure to wear the seat belt
with the seat belt extender.
1−7. Safety information
CAUTION
SRS airbag precautions
Do not sit on the edge of the seat or
lean against the dashboard.
Do not allow a child to sit on the knees
of a front passenger while the vehicle is
moving.
Do not drive the vehicle while the driver
or passenger has items resting on their
knees.
Do not lean against the door, the roof
side rail or the front, side and rear pil−
lars.
Do not allow anyone to kneel on the

their head or hands outside the vehicle.
82
1−7. Safety information
CAUTION
SRS airbag precautions
Do not attach anything to areas such as
the door, windshield glass, side door
glass, front and rear pillars, roof side
rail or assist grip.
Do not hang coat hangers or other hard
objects on the coat hooks. All of these
items could become projectiles and
seriously injure or kill you, should the
SRS curtain shield airbag deploy.
Do not use seat accessories which cover the parts where the SRS side
airbags inflate as they may interfere with inflation of the airbags.
Do not strike or apply significant levels of force to the area of the SRS air−
bag components shown on P. 74.
Doing so can cause the SRS airbags to malfunction.
Do not touch any of the component parts immediately after the SRS air−
bags have deployed (inflated) as they may be hot.
If breathing becomes difficult after the SRS airbag has deployed, open a
door or window to allow fresh air in, or leave the vehicle if it is safe to do
so. Wash off any residue as soon as possible to prevent skin irritation.
If the areas where the SRS airbags are stored, such as the steering wheel
pad and front and rear pillar garnishes, are damaged or cracked, have
them replaced by your Toyota dealer.

Front passenger occupant classification system precautions
Observe the following precautions r egarding front passenger occupant clas−
sification system.
Failure to do so may cause death or serious injury.
Wear the seat belt properly.
Make sure the front passenger ’s seat belt tab has not been left inserted
into the buckle before someone sits in the front passenger seat.
Make sure the AIR BAG OFF indicator light is not illuminated when using
the seat belt extender for the front passenger seat. If the AIR BAG OFF
indicator light is illuminated, disconnect the extender tongue from the seat
belt buckle, then reconnect the seat belt. Reconnect the seat belt extender
after making sure the AIR BAG ON indicator light is illuminated. If you use
the seat belt extender while the AIR BAG OFF indicator light is illuminated,
the front passenger airbag and side airbag on the front passenger side
may not activate correctly, which could cause death or serious injury in the
event of collision.
Do not apply a heavy load to the front passenger seat or equipment.
Do not put weight on the front passenger seat by putting your hands or
feet on the front passenger seat seatback from the rear passenger seat.
Do not let a rear passenger lift the front passenger seat with their feet or
press on the seatback with their legs.
Do not put objects under the front passenger seat.
Do not recline the front passenger seatback so far that it touches a rear
seat. This may cause the AIR BAG OFF indicator light to be illuminated,
which indicates that the passenger ’s airbags will not deploy in the event of
a severe accident. If the seatback touches the rear seat, return the seat−
back to a position where it does not touch the rear seat. Keep the front
passenger seatback as upright as possible when the vehicle is moving.
Reclining the seatback excessively may lessen the effectiveness of the
seat belt system.
88
1−7. Safety information
CAUTION
Front passenger occupant classification system precautions
When it is unavoidable to install the forward−facing child restraint system
on the front passenger seat, install the child restraint system on the front
passenger seat in the proper order. ( P. 93)
Do not modify or remove the front seats.
Do not kick the front passenger seat or subject it to severe impact. Other−
wise, the SRS warning light may come on to indicate a malfunction of the
detection system. In this case, contact your Toyota dealer immediately.
Child restraint systems installed on the rear seat should not contact the
front seatbacks.
89
Before driving
If an adult sits in the front passenger seat, the AIR BAG ON indicator light
is illuminated. If the AIR BAG OFF indicator is illuminated, ask the passen− 1
ger to sit up straight, well back in the seat, feet on the floor, and with the
seat belt worn correctly. If the AIR BAG OFF indicator still remain illumi−
nated, either ask the passenger to move to the rear seat, or if that is not
possible, move the front passenger seat fully rearward.
1−7. Safety information
Child restraint systems
A child restraint system for a small child or baby must itself be prop−
erly restrained on the seat with the lap portion of the lap/shoulder
belt.
The laws of all 50 states of the U.S.A. and Canada now require the
use of child restraint systems.
Points to remember
Studies have shown that installing a child restraint on a rear seat is
much safer than installing one to the front passenger seat.
Choose a child restraint system appropriate to the age and size of
the child.
For installation details, follow the instructions provided with the
child restraint system.
General installation instructions are provided in this manual.
( P. 9 3 )
Types of child restraints
Child restraint systems are clas sified into the following 3 types
according to the age and size of the child.
Infant seat
90
1−7. Safety information
Convertible seat
1
Before driving
Booster seat
When the child restraint system is not in use
Leave the child restraint system properly secured on the seat. Do not store
the restraint loosely on a passenger seat or in the luggage compartment.
Selecting an appropriate child restraint system
Get an appropriate child restraint system for the child. If a child is too large
for a child restraint system, sit the child on a rear seat and use the vehicle’s
seat belt. ( P. 51)
CAUTION
Child restraint precautions
For effective protection in automobile accidents and sudden stops, a child
must be properly restrained, using a seat belt or child restraint system
depending on the age and size of the child. Holding a child in your arms is
not a substitute for a child restraint system. In an accident, the child can be
crushed against the windshield, or between you and the vehicle’s interior.
91
1−7. Safety information
CAUTION
Child restraint precautions
Toyota strongly urges the use of a proper child restraint system that con−
forms to the size of the child, installed on the rear seat. According to acci−
dent statistics, the child is safer when properly restrained in the rear seat
than in the front seat.
Never install a rear−facing child restraint system on the front passenger
seat even if AIR BAG OFF indicator light is illuminated. In the event of an
accident, the force of the rapid inflation of the front passenger airbag can
cause death or serious injury to the child if the rear−facing child restraint
system is installed on the front passenger seat.
A forward−facing child restraint system should allowed to be installed on
the front passenger seat only when it is unavoidable. Always move the
seat as far back as possible even if AIR BAG OFF indicator light is illumi−
nated, because the front passenger airbag could inflate with considerable
speed and force. Otherwise, the child may be killed or seriously injured.
Do not use the seat belt extender when installing a child restraint system
on the front or rear passenger seat. If installing a child restraint system
with the seat belt extender connected to the seat belt, the seat belt will not
securely hold the child restraint system, which could cause death or seri−
ous injury to the child or other passengers in the event of collision.
Do not allow the child to lean his/her head or any part of his/her body
against the door or the area of the sea t, front and rear pillars or roof side
rail from which the side airbags or curtain shield airbags deploy even if the
child is seated in the child restraint system. It is dangerous if the side air−
bags and curtain shield airbags inflate, and the impact could cause death
or serious injury to the child.
Make sure you have complied with all installation instructions provided by
the child restraint manufacturer and that the system is properly secured. If
it is not secured properly, it may cause death or serious injury to the child
in the event of a sudden stop or accident.

1−7. Safety information
CAUTION
When installing a child restraint system
If the driver’s seat interferes with the
child restraint system and prevents it
from being attached correctly, attach
the child restraint system to the right−
hand rear seat.
Only put a forward facing or booster
child seat on the front seat when
unavoidable. When installing a forward
facing or booster child seat on the front
passenger seat, move the seat as far
back as possible even if AIR BAG OFF
indicator light is illuminated. Failing to
do so may result in death or serious
injury if the airbags deploy (inflate).
When a booster seat is installed, always ensure that the shoulder belt is
positioned across the center of the child’s shoulder. The belt should be
kept away from the child’s neck, but not so that it could fall off the child’s
shoulder. Failing to do so may result in death or serious injury in the event
of an accident or sudden braking.
Ensure that the belt and tab are securely locked and the seat belt is not
twisted.
Push and pull the child restraint system in different directions to be sure it
is secure.
Follow all installation instructions provided by the child restraint system
manufacturer.

Comply with the relevant vehicle registration laws and confirm the availability
of the correct fuel. ( P. 364)
106
2−1. Driving procedures
Normal characteristics after turning off the engine
Approximately five hours after the engine is turned off, you may hear sound
coming from under the vehicle for several minutes. This is the sound of a
fuel evaporation leakage check and, it does not indicate a malfunction.
CAUTION
When starting the vehicle
When driving the vehicle
Do not drive if you are unfamiliar with the location of the brake and accel−
erator pedals to avoid depressing the wrong pedal.
Accidentally depressing the accelerator pedal instead of the brake pedal
will result in sudden acceleration that may lead to an accident that could
result in death or serious injury.
Do not drive the vehicle over or stop the vehicle near flammable materials.
The exhaust system and exhaust gases can be extremely hot. This may
cause a fire if there is any flammable material nearby.
Vehicles with an automatic transmission, do not let the vehicle roll back−
wards while the shift lever is in a driving position, or roll forward while the
shift lever is in R.
Doing so may cause the engine to stall or lead to poor brake and steering
performance, resulting in an accident or damage to the vehicle.
If the smell of exhaust is noticed inside the vehicle, open the windows and
check that the back door and glass hatch are closed. Large amounts of
exhaust in the vehicle can cause driver drowsiness and an accident,
resulting in death or a serious health hazard. Have the vehicle inspected
by your Toyota dealer immediately.
Do not under any circumstances shift the shift lever to P, R or N (automatic
transmission) or R (manual transmission) while the vehicle is moving.
Doing so can cause significant damage to the transmission system and
may result in a loss of vehicle control.
107
2
When driving
Vehicles with an automatic transmission, always keep your foot on the brake
pedal while stopped with the engine running. This prevents the vehicle from
creeping.
2−1. Driving procedures
CAUTION
When driving the vehicle
Do not shift the shift lever to N while the vehicle is moving.
Doing so may cause the engine brake to not operate properly and lead to
an accident.
Do not turn the engine off while driving.
The power steering and brake booster systems will not operate properly if
the engine is not running.
Use engine braking (downshift) to maintain a safe speed when driving
down a steep hill.
Using the brakes continuously may cause the brakes to overheat and lose
effectiveness. ( P. 11 8120)
When stopped on an inclined surface, use the brake pedal and parking
brake to prevent the vehicle from rolling backward or forward and causing
an accident.
Do not adjust the position of the steering wheel, the seat, or the inside or
outside rear view mirrors while driving.
Doing so may result in a loss of vehicle control that can cause accidents
that may result in death or serious injury.
Always check that all passengers’ arms, heads or other parts of their bod−
ies are not outside the vehicle, as this may result in death or serious injury.
Do not drive in excess of the speed limit. Even if the legal speed limit per−
mits it, do not drive over 85 mph (140 km/h) unless your vehicle has high−
speed capability tires. Driving over 85 mph (140 km/h) may result in tire
failure, loss of control and possible injury. Be sure to consult a tire dealer
to determine whether the tires on your vehicle are high−speed capability
tires or not before driving at such speeds.
108
2−1. Driving procedures
CAUTION
When driving on slippery road surfaces
Sudden braking, acceleration and steering may cause tire slippage and
reduce your ability to control the vehicle, resulting in an accident.
Sudden changes in engine speed, such as engine braking caused by up−
shifting or down−shifting, may cause the vehicle to skid, resulting in an
accident.
When shifting the shift lever
Vehicles with an automatic transmission, be careful not to shift the shift
lever with the accelerator pedal depressed.
This may lead to unexpected rapid acceleration of the vehicle that may
cause an accident and result in death or serious injury.
When the vehicle is stopped
Do not race the engine.
If the vehicle is in any gear other than P (automatic transmission only) or
N, the vehicle may accelerate suddenly and unexpectedly, and may cause
an accident.
Do not leave the vehicle with the engine running for a long time.
If such a situation cannot be avoided, park the vehicle in an open space
and check that exhaust fumes do not enter the vehicle interior.
Vehicles with an automatic transmission, always keep a foot on the brake
pedal while the engine is running to prevent an accident caused by the
vehicle moving.
109
2
When driving
After driving through a puddle, lightly depress the brake pedal to make
sure that the brakes are functioning properly. Wet brake pads may prevent
the brakes from functioning properly. If the brakes on only one side are wet
and not functioning properly, steering control may be affected, resulting in
an accident.
2−1. Driving procedures
CAUTION
When the vehicle is parked
Do not leave glasses, cigarette lighters, spray cans, or soft drink cans in
the vehicle when it is in the sun.
Doing so may result in the following.
S Gas may leak from a cigarette lighter or spray can, and may lead to a
fire.
S The temperature inside the vehicle may cause the plastic lenses and
plastic material of eye glasses to deform or crack.
S Soft drink cans may fracture, causing the contents to spray over the
interior of the vehicle, and may also cause a short circuit in the vehi−
cle’s electrical components.
Always apply the parking brake, shift the shift lever to P (automatic trans−
mission only), stop the engine and lock the vehicle.
Do not leave the vehicle unattended while the engine is running.
Do not touch the exhaust pipe while the engine is running or immediately
after turning the engine off.
Doing so may cause burns.
Do not leave the engine running in an area with snow build−up, or where it
is snowing. If snowbanks build up around the vehicle while the engine is
running, exhaust gases may collect and enter the vehicle. This may lead
to death or a serious health hazard.
Exhaust gases
Exhaust gases include harmful carbon monoxide (CO) that is colorless and
odorless. Inhaling exhaust gases may lead to death or a serious health haz−
ard.
If the vehicle is in a poorly ventilated area, stop the engine. In a closed
area, such as a garage, exhaust gases may collect and enter the vehicle.
This may lead to death or a serious health hazard.
The exhaust should be checked occasionally. If there is a hole or crack
caused by corrosion, damage to a joint or abnormal exhaust noise, be
sure to have the vehicle inspected and repaired by your Toyota dealer.
Failure to do so may allow exhaust gases to enter the vehicle, resulting in
death or a serious health hazard.
110
2−1. Driving procedures
CAUTION
When taking a nap in the vehicle
Always turn the engine off. Otherwise, you may accidentally move the shift
lever or depress the accelerator pedal, which could cause an accident or fire
due to engine overheating. Additionally, if the vehicle is parked in a poorly
ventilated area, exhaust gases may collect and enter the vehicle, leading to
death or a serious health hazard.
When braking the vehicle
2
If the power brake assist function does not operate, do not follow other
vehicles closely and avoid downhills or sharp turns that require braking.
In this case, braking is still possible, but it will require more force on the
pedal than usual. Braking distance may also increase.
Do not pump the brake pedal if the engine stalls.
Each push on the brake pedal uses up the reserve for the power−assisted
brakes.
The brake system consists of 2 individual hydraulic systems: If one of the
systems fails, the other will still operate. In this case, the brake pedal
should be depressed more firmly than usual and braking distance
becomes longer.
Do not drive your vehicle with only a single brake system. Have your
brakes fixed immediately.
111
When driving
When the brakes are wet, drive more cautiously.
Braking distance increases when the brakes are wet, and may cause one
side of the vehicle to brake differently than the other side. Also the parking
brake may not securely hold the vehicle.

Off−road precautions
This vehicle belongs to the utility vehicle class, which has higher
ground clearance and narrower tread in relation to the height of its
center of gravity to make it capable of performing in a wide variety of
off−road applications.
Off−road vehicle feature
Specific design characteristics give it a higher center of gravity
than ordinary passenger cars. This vehicle design feature causes
this type of vehicle to be more likely to rollover. And, utility vehicles
have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehi−
cles.
An advantage of the higher ground clearance is a better view of the
road allowing you to anticipate problems.
It is not designed for cornering at the same speeds as ordinary
passenger cars any more than lo w−slung sports cars designed to
perform satisfactorily under off−road conditions. Therefore, sharp
turns at excessive speeds may cause rollover.
160
2−5. Driving information
CAUTION
Off−road vehicle precautions
Always observe the following precautions to minimize the risk of serious per−
sonal injury or damage to your vehicle:
In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die
than a person wearing a seat belt. Therefore, the driver and all passengers
should fasten their seat belts whenever the vehicle is moving.
2
Loading cargo on the roof luggage carrier will make the center of the vehi−
cle gravity higher. Avoid high speeds, sudden starts, sharp turns, sudden
braking or abrupt maneuvers, otherwise it may result in loss of control or
vehicle rollover due to failure to operate this vehicle correctly.
Always slow down in gusty crosswi
nds. Because of its profile and higher
center of gravity, your vehicle is more sensitive to side winds than an ordi−
nary passenger car. Slowing down will allow you to have better control.
When driving off−road or in rugged terrain, do not drive at excessive
speeds, jump, make sharp turns, strike objects, etc. This may cause loss
of control or vehicle rollover causing death or serious injury. You are also
risking expensive damage to your vehicle’s suspension and chassis.
Do not drive horizontally across steep slopes. Driving straight up or
straight down is preferred. Your vehicle (or any similar off−road vehicle)
can tip over sideways much more easily than forward or backward.

Off−road driving
When driving your vehicle off−road, please observe the following pre−
cautions to ensure your driving enjoyment and to help prevent the
closure of areas to off−road vehicles.
Drive your vehicle only in areas where off−road vehicles are permit−
ted to travel.
Respect private property. Get owner’s permission before entering
private property.
Do not enter areas that are closed. Honor gates, barriers and signs
that restrict travel.
Stay on established roads. When conditions are wet, driving tech−
niques should be changed or trav el delayed to prevent damage to
roads.

CAUTION
Off−road driving precautions
Always observe the following precautions to minimize the risk of serious per−
sonal injury or damage to your vehicle:
Drive carefully when off the road. Do not take unnecessary risks by driving
in dangerous places.
Do not grip the steering wheel spokes when driving off−road. A bad bump
could jerk the wheel and injure your hands. Keep both hands and espe−
cially your thumbs on the outside of the rim.
After driving through tall grass, mud, rock, sand, rivers, etc., check that
there is no grass, bush, paper, rags, stone, sand, etc. adhering or trapped
on the underbody. Clear off any such matter from the underbody. If the
vehicle is used with these materials trapped or adhering to the underbody,
a breakdown or fire could occur.
In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die
than a person wearing a seat belt. Therefore, the driver and all passengers
should fasten their seat belts whenever the vehicle is moving.
When driving off−road or in rugged terrain, do not drive at excessive
speeds, jump, make sharp turns, strike objects, etc. This may cause loss
of control or vehicle rollover causing death or serious injury. You are also
risking expensive damage to your vehicle’s suspension and chassis.

NOTICE
To prevent the water damage
Take all necessary safety measures to ensure that water damage to the
engine or other components does not occur.
Water entering the engine air intake will cause severe engine damage.
Water entering the automatic transmission will cause deterioration in shift
quality, locking up of your transmission accompanied by vibration, and ulti−
mately damage.
Water can wash the grease from wheel bearings, causing rusting and pre−
mature failure, and may also enter the differentials, transmission and
transfer case, reducing the gear oil’s lubricating qualities.
When you drive through water
If driving through water, such as when crossing shallow streams, first check
the depth of the water and the bottom of the river bed for firmness. Drive
slowly and avoid deep water.
Inspection after off−road driving
Sand and mud that has accumulated in brake drums and around brake
discs may affect braking efficiency and may damage brake system compo−
nents.
Always perform a maintenance inspection after each day of off−road driv−
ing that has taken you through rough terrain, sand, mud, or water. For
scheduled maintenance information, refer to the “Scheduled Maintenance
Guide” or “Owner ’s Manual Supplement”.

Cargo and luggage
Take notice of the following information about storage precau−
tions, cargo capacity and load.
Stow cargo and luggage in the luggage compartment whenever
possible.
Be sure all items are secured in place.
Be careful to keep the vehicle level. Placing the weight as far for−
ward as possible helps maintain vehicle balance.
2
For better fuel economy, do not carry unnecessary weight.
When driving
Capacity and distribution
Cargo capacity depends on the total weight of the occupants.
(Cargo capacity) = (Total load capacity) (Total weight of occupants)
Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit—
(1) Locate the statement “The co mbined weight of occupants and
cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.” on your vehicle’s
placard.
(2) Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that
will be riding in your vehicle.
(3)Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from
XXX kg or XXX lbs.
(4) The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and lug−
gage 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 (5 150)
= 650 lbs.)
(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.
165
2−5. Driving information
(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.
Example on your vehicle
Cargo capacity
Total load capacity
When 2 people with the combined weight of 366 lb. (166 kg) are
riding in your vehicle, which has a total load capacity of 1190 lb. (540
kg), the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity will be
as follows:
1190 lb.
366 lb. = 824 lb. (540 kg
166 kg = 374 kg)
In this condition, if 3 more pa ssengers with the combined weight of
388 lb. (176 kg) get on , the available cargo and luggage load will be
reduced as follows:
824 lb.
388 lb. = 436 lb. (374 kg
176 kg = 198 kg)
As shown in the above example,
if the number of occupants
increases, the cargo and luggage load equaling the combined weight
of the occupants who got on later, by an amount. In other words, if an
increase in the number of occupants causes an excess of the total
load capacity (combined weight of occupants plus cargo and luggage
load), you must reduce the cargo and luggage on your vehicle.

Secure all items in the occupant compartment, as they may shift and
injure someone during an accident or sudden braking.
Never allow anyone to ride in the luggage compartment. It is not
designed for passengers. They should ride in their seats with their seat
belts properly fastened. Otherwise, they are much more likely to suffer
death or serious bodily injury, in the event of sudden braking or a colli−
sion.
Capacity and distribution
Do not exceed the maximum axle weight rating or the total vehicle
weight rating.
Even if the total load of occupant’s weight and the cargo load is less
than the total load capacity, do no t apply the load unevenly. Improper
loading may cause deterioration of st eering or braking control which
may cause death or serious injury.

CAUTION
To avoid accident or injury
The total trailer weight (trailer weight plus the weight of cargo) must not
exceed 5000 lb. (2265 kg)
If a trailer and cargo weight over 2000 lb. (907 kg), use a sway control
device with sufficient capacity.
The gross combined weight (sum of your vehicle weight plus its load and
the total trailer weight) must not exceed the following.
2WD models
9200 lb. (4173 kg)
4WD models
9500 lb. (4309 kg)
Do not exceed the trailer hitch assembly weight, gross vehicle weight,
gross axle weight and trailer tongue load capacities.
Never load more weight in the back than in the front of the trailer. About
60% of the load should be in the front half of the trailer, and the remaining
40% in the rear.
The tow hitch receiver installed on your vehicle must never be used on
another vehicle.
Hitches
If you wish to install a trailer hitch, your Toyota dealer should be consulted.
Use only a hitch that conforms to the total trailer weight requirement.
Follow the directions supplied by the hitch manufacturer.
Lubricate the hitch ball with a light coat of grease.
Remove the trailer hitch whenever y ou are not towing a trailer to reduce
the possibility of additional damage caused by the hitch if your vehicle is
struck from behind.

2−5. Driving information
CAUTION
When towing a trailer
If the total trailer weight exceeds 1000 lb. (453 kg), trailer brakes are
required.
Never tap into your vehicle’s hydraulic system, as this will lower the vehi−
cle’s braking effectiveness.
Never tow a trailer without using a safety chain securely attached to both
the trailer and the vehicle. If damage occurs to the coupling unit or hitch
ball, there is danger of the trailer wandering into another lane.

When driving
NOTICE
When installing a trailer hitch
Use only the position recommended by your Toyota dealer. Do not install the
trailer hitch on the bumper; this may cause body damage.
Brakes
Toyota recommends trailers with brakes that conform to any applicable fed−
eral and state/provincial regulations.
Safety chain
A safety chain must always be used between the towing vehicle and the
trailer. Leave sufficient slack in the chain for turns. The chain should cross
under the trailer tongue to prevent the tongue from dropping to the ground in
the case that it becomes damaged or separated. For the correct safety chain
installation procedure, ask your Toyota dealer.
Do not directly splice trailer lights
Directly splicing trailer lights may damage your vehicle’s electrical system
and cause a malfunction.

Trailer towing tips
Your vehicle will handle differently when towing a trailer. The three
main causes of vehicle−trailer ac cidents are driver error, excessive
speed and improper trailer loading. Keep these in mind when towing.
Before starting out, check the trailer’s light and the vehicle−trailer
connections. Recheck after driving a short distance.
Practice turning, stopping and reve rsing with the trailer attached in
an area away from traffic until you become accustomed to the feel
of the vehicle.
Reversing with a trailer attached is difficult and requires practice.
Grip the bottom of the steering wheel and move your hand to the
left to move the trailer to the left. Move your hand to the right to
move the trailer to the right. (This generally opposite to reversing
without a trailer attached.) Avoid sharp or prolonged turning. Have
someone guide you when reversing to reduce the risk of an acci−
dent.
As stopping distance is increased when towing a trailer, vehicle−to−
vehicle distance should be increased. For each 10 mph (16 km/h)
of speed, allow at least one vehicle and trailer length.
Avoid sudden braking as you may skid, resulting in jackknifing and
loss of control. This is especially true on wet or slippery surfaces.
Avoid jerky starts or sudden acceleration. Vehicles with a manual
transmission, prevent excessive clutch slippage by keeping engine
rpm low and not racing the engine. Always start out in first gear.
Avoid jerky steering and sharp turns, and slow down before mak−
ing a turn.
178
2−5. Driving information
Note that when making a turn, the trailer wheels will be closer than
the vehicle wheels to the inside of the turn. Compensate by making
a larger than normal turning radius.
Take care when passing other vehicles. Passing requires consider−
able distance. After passing a vehicle, do not forget the length of
your trailer, and be sure you hav e plenty of room before changing
lanes.
In order to maintain engine braking efficiency, do not use the trans−
mission in D (automatic transmission) or 6 (manual transmission).
Due to the added load of the trailer, your vehicle’s engine may
overheat on hot days (at temper atures over 85°F [30°C]) when
driving up a long or steep grade. If the engine coolant temperature
gauge indicates overheating, immediately turn off the air condition−
ing (if in use), pull your vehicle off the road and stop in a safe spot.
( P. 356)
179
When driving
Crosswinds and rough roads will adversely affect handling of your
vehicle and trailer, causing sway . Periodically check the rear to
prepare for being passed by large trucks or buses, which may
cause your vehicle and trailer to sway. If swaying occurs, firmly grip
the steering wheel, reduce speed immediately but gradually, and
2
steer straight ahead. Never increase speed. If you make no
extreme correction with the stee ring or brakes, your vehicle and
trailer will stabilize.
2−5. Driving information
Always place wheel blocks under both the vehicle and the trailer
wheels when parking. Apply the parking brake firmly, and put the
transmission in P (automatic transmission) or in 1 or R (manual
transmission). Avoid parking on a slope, but if unavoidable, do so
only after performing the following:
Apply the brakes and keep them applied.

CAUTION
To avoid an accident
Do not exceed 45 mph (72 km/h) or posted towing speed limit, whichever
is lower. As instability (swaying) of the towing vehicle−trailer combination
increases as speed increases, exceeding 45 mph (72 km/h) may cause
loss of control.
Slow down and downshift before descending steep or long downhill
grades. Do not make sudden downshifts.

File names
The only files that can be recogniz ed as MP3/WMA and played are those
with the extension .mp3 or .wma.
Multi−sessions
As the audio system is compatible with multi−sessions, it is possible to play
discs that contain MP3 and WMA files. However, only the first session can
be played.
ID3 and WMA tags
ID3 tags can be added to MP3 files, making it possible to record the track
title and artist name, etc.
The system is compatible with ID3 Ver. 1.0, 1.1, and Ver. 2.2, 2.3 ID3 tags.
(The number of characters is based on ID3 Ver. 1.0 and 1.1.)
WMA tags can be added to WMA files, making it possible to record the
track title and artist name in the same way as with ID3 tags.
When a disc containing MP3 or WMA files is inserted, all files on the disc
are first checked. Once the file check is finished, the first MP3 or WMA file
is played. To make the file check finish more quickly, we recommend you
do not write in any files other than MP3 or WMA files or create any unnec−
essary folders.
If the discs contain a mixture of music data and MP3 or WMA format data,
only music data can be played.
Extensions
If the file extensions .mp3 and .wma are used for files other than MP3 and
WMA files, they will be mistakenly recognized and played as MP3 and
WMA files. This may result in large amounts of interference and damage
to the speakers.
Playback
S To play MP3 file with steady sound quality, we recommend a fixed bit
rate of 128 kbps and a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz.
S CD−R or CD−RW playback may not be possible in some instances,
depending on the characteristics of the disc.

S There is a wide variety of freeware and other encoding software for
MP3 and WMA files on the market, and depending on the status of the
encoding and the file format, poor sound quality or noise at the start of
playback may result. In some cases, playback may not be possible at
all.
S When files other than MP3 or WMA files are recorded on a disc, it may
take more time to recognize the disc and in some cases, playback may
not be possible at all.

condition.
Working from top to bottom, liber
ally apply water to the vehicle
body, wheel wells and underside of the vehicle to remove any
dirt and dust.
Wash the vehicle body using a sponge or soft cloth, such as a
chamois.
For hard−to−remove marks, use car wash soap and rinse thor−
oughly with water.
Wipe away any water.
Wax the vehicle when the waterproof coating deteriorates.
If water does not bead on a clean surface, apply wax when the vehicle
body is cool.
Automatic car washes
Before washing the vehicle, do the following.
S Fold the mirrors back.
S Remove the antenna.
Brushes used in automatic car washes may scratch the vehicle surface
and harm your vehicle’s paint.
High pressure automatic car washes
Do not allow the nozzles of the car wash to come within close proximity of
the windows. Before entering an automatic car wash, check that the fuel filler
door on your vehicle is closed properly.
Touch−up paint (if equipped)
Touch−up paint may be used to cover small chips or scratches.
Apply the paint soon after the damage occurs or corrosion may set in. To
apply the touch−up paint so it is hardly noticeable the trick is to apply it only
to the bare spots. Apply only the smallest amount possible and do not paint
the surface around the scratch or chip.

the next oil change.
4−3. Do−it−yourself maintenance
How to read oil container labels
Some oil containers are labeled with ILSAC certification marks that
help you to select the proper oil.
Engine oil consumption
The amount of engine oil consumed depends on the oil viscosity, the
quality of the oil and the way the vehicle is driven.
More oil is consumed under driving conditions such as high speeds and
frequent acceleration and deceleration.
When judging the amount of oil consumption, keep in mind that the oil
may have become diluted, making it difficult to judge the true level accu−
rately.
Oil consumption: Max. 1.1 qt./600 miles, 0.9 lmp.qt./600 miles (1.0 L per
1000 km)
If you consume more than 1.1 qt. (1.0 L, 0.9 lmp.qt.) every 600 miles
(1000 km), contact your Toyota dealer.
277
Maintenance and care
A new engine consumes more oil.

Maintenance and care
Rotate the tires in the order
shown.
4−3. Do−it−yourself maintenance
Installing tire pressure warning valves and transmitters
When replacing tires or wheels, tire pressure warning valves and
transmitters must also be installed.
When new tire pressure warning valves and transmitters are installed,
sensor ID codes must be registered in the tire pressure warning com−
puter.
Registering ID codes
The tire pressure warning valve and transmitter is equipped with a
unique ID code. When replacing a tire pressure warning valve and
transmitter, it is necessary to regi ster the ID code of tire pressure
warning valve and transmitter. Have the ID code registered by your
Toyota dealer.
If the ID code is not registered , the system will not work properly.
After about 20 minutes, the tire pressure warning light comes on after
blinking for 1 minute to indicate a system malfunction.
When to replace your vehicle’s tires
Tires should be replaced if:
You have tire damage such as cuts, splits, cracks deep enough to
expose the fabric or bulges indicating internal damage
A tire goes flat repeatedly or c annot be properly repaired due to the
size or location of a cut or other damage
If you are not sure, consult with your Toyota dealer.
Tire life
Any tire over 6 years old must be checked by a qualified technician even
if they have seldom or never been used or damage is not obvious.
If the tread wears down below 0.16 in. (4 mm) on snow tires
The effectiveness of snow tires is lost.

Check that the maximum load of the re placed tire is greater than 1/2 of
the Gross Axle Weight Ratings (GAWR) of either the front axle or the
rear axle, whichever is greater.
As for the maximum load of the tire, see the load limit at maximum cold
tire inflation pressure mentioned on the sidewall of the tire, and as for the
Gross Axle Weight Ratings (GAWR), see the Certification Label.
( P. 292, 363, 375).
Tire types
1 Summer tires
2 All season tires
All season tires are designed to prov ide better traction in snow and to
be adequate for driving in most winter conditions, as well as for use
year round. All season tires, however, do not have adequate traction
performance compared with snow tires in heavy or loose snow. Also,
all season tires fall short in acceleration and handling performance
compared with summer tires in highway driving.
3Snow tires
For driving on snow−covered roads or icy roads, we recommend using
snow tires. If you need snow tires, select tires of the same size, con−
struction and load capacity as the or iginally installed tires. Since your
vehicle has radial tires as original equipment, make sure your snow
tires also have radial construction. Do not install studded tires without
first checking local regulations for possible restriction. Snow tires
should be installed on all wheels. ( P. 169)
289
4
Maintenance and care
Summer tires are high−speed performance tires best suited to highway
driving under dry conditions. Since summer tires do not have the same
traction performance as snow tire s, summer tires are inadequate for
driving on snow−covered or icy roads. For driving on snow−covered
roads or icy roads, the use of
snow tires is recommended. When
installing snow tires, be sure to replace all four tires.

CAUTION
Tire pressure warning system operation
The tire pressure warning system may not provide warning immediately
if a tire bursts or if sudden air leakage occurs.
When inspecting or replacing tires
Observe the following precautions to prevent accidents. Failure to do so
may cause damage to parts of the drive train, as well as dangerous han−
dling characteristics, which may lead to fatal or injury accidents.
Do not mix tires of different makes, models, tread patterns or tread−
wear.
Do not use tire sizes other than those recommended by Toyota.
Do not mix radial, bias−belted, or bias−ply tires.
Do not mix summer, all season and winter tires.
Do not use tires that have been used on another vehicle.
Do not use tires if you do not know how they were used previously.

Repairing or replacing tires, wheels and tire pressure warning
valves and transmitters
When removing or fitting the wheels, tires or the tire pressure warning
valve and transmitter, contact your Toyota dealer as the tire pressure
warning valve and transmitter may be damaged if not handled correctly.
Do not use puncture sealant sprays to repair flats
Puncture sealant sprays may damage tire pressure warning valves and
transmitters.
Driving on rough roads
Take particular care when driving on roads with loose surfaces or pot−
holes.
These conditions may cause losses in tire inflation pressure, reducing
the cushioning ability of the tires. In addition driving on rough roads may
cause damage to the tires themselves, as well as the vehicle’s wheels
and body.
If tire inflation pressures become low while driving
Do not continue driving, or your tires and/or wheels may be ruined.

Maintenance and care
After completing the tire inflation pressure measurement
and adjustment, apply soapy water to the valve and check
for leakage.
Reinstall the tire valve cap.
Tire inflation pressure check interval
You should check tire pressure every two weeks, or at least once a
month.
Do not forget to check the spare.
Effects of incorrect tire inflation pressure
Driving with incorrect tire inflation pressure may result in the following:
Reduced fuel efficiency
Reduced driving comfort and tire life
Reduced safety
Damage to the drive train
If a tire needs frequent refilling, have it checked by your Toyota dealer.
293
4−3. Do−it−yourself maintenance
Instructions for checking tire inflation pressure
When checking tire inflation pressure, observe the following:
Check only when the tires are cold.
If your vehicle has been parked for at least 3 hours and has not been
driven for more than 1 mile or 1.5 km, you will get an accurate cold
tire inflation pressure reading.
Always use a tire pressure gauge.
The appearance of the tire can be mi sleading. In addition, tire infla−
tion pressures that are even just a few pounds off can degrade ride
and handling.
Do not bleed or reduce tire inflation pressure after driving. It is normal
for the tire inflation pressure to be higher after driving.
Never exceed the vehicle capacity weight.
Passengers and luggage weight should be placed so that the vehicle
is balanced.
CAUTION
Proper inflation is critical to save tire performance
Keep your tires properly inflated.
Otherwise, the following conditions may occur and result in an accident
causing death or serious injury.
Excessive wear
Uneven wear
Poor handling
Possibility of blowouts resulting from overheated tires
Poor sealing of the tire bead
Wheel deformation and/or tire separation
A greater possibility of tire damage from road hazards
294
4−3. Do−it−yourself maintenance
NOTICE
When inspecting and adjusting tire inflation pressure
Be sure to reinstall the tire valve caps.
Without the valve caps, dirt or mo isture could get into the valve and
cause air leakage, which could result in an accident. If the caps have
been lost, replace them as soon as possible.

295
4−3. Do−it−yourself maintenance
Wheels
If a wheel is bent, cracked or heavily corroded, it should be
replaced.
Otherwise, the tire may separate from the wheel or cause loss of
handling control.
Wheel selection
When replacing wheels, care should be taken to ensure that
they are equivalent to those removed in load capacity, diameter,
rim width, and offset.
Replacement wheels are available at your Toyota dealer.
Toyota does not recommend using:
Wheels of different sizes or types
Used wheels
Bent wheels that have been straightened
Aluminum wheel precautions (if equipped)
Use only Toyota wheel nuts and wrench designed for use with
your aluminum wheels.
When rotating, repairing or changing your tires, check that the
wheel nuts are still tight after driving 1000 miles (1600 km).
Be careful not to damage the aluminum wheels when using
tire chains.
Use only Toyota genuine balance weights or equivalent and a
plastic or rubber hammer when balancing your wheels.
When replacing wheels
The wheels of your Toyota are equipped with sensors that allow the tire
pressure warning system sensors to provide advanced warning in the
event of a loss in tire inflation pressure. Whenever wheels are replaced,
the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter must be switched over
from the old wheels. ( P. 288)
296
4−3. Do−it−yourself maintenance
CAUTION
When replacing wheels
Do not use wheels that are a different size from those recommended in
the Owner ’s Manual, as this may result in loss of handling control.
Never use an inner tube in a leaking wheel which is designed for a
tubeless tire. Doing so may result in an accident, causing death or seri−
ous injury.
NOTICE
Replacing tire pressure warning valves and transmitters
Because tire repair or replacement may affect the tire pressure warn−
ing valves and transmitters, make su re to have tires serviced by your
Toyota dealer or other qualified service shop. In addition, make sure to
purchase your tire pressure warning valves and transmitters at your
Toyota dealer.

Toyota will not disclose the data re corded in an EDR to a third party
except when:
An agreement from the vehicle’s ow
ner (or the leasing company for
a leased vehicle) is obtained
Officially requested by the police or other authorities
Used as a defense for Toyota in a law suit
Ordered by a court of law
However, if necessary Toyota will:
Use the data for research on Toyota vehicle safety performance
Disclose the data to a third party for research purposes without dis−
closing details of the vehicle owner, and only when it is deemed
necessary
Disclose summarized data cleared of vehicle identification informa−

5−2. Steps to take in an emergency
CAUTION
Maintenance of the tire
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 (tire and load information label). (If your vehicle has tires of a differ−
ent size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation
pressure label [tire and load information 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−ti re pressure warning system) that
illuminates a low tire pressure telltal e (tire pressure warning light) when
one or more of your tires is significantly under−inflated. Accordingly,
when the low tire pressu re telltale (tire pressure warning light) illumi−
nates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and
inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under−
inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure.
Under−inflation also reduces fuel effi ciency and tire tread life, and may
affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
Please note that the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) is not a sub−
stitute for proper tire main tenance, and it is the driver ’s responsibility to
maintain correct tire pressure, even if under−inflation has not reached the
level to trigger illu mination of the TPMS low ti re pressure telltale (tire
pressure warning light).
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS (tire pressure warning
system) malfunction indicator to indi cate when the system is not operat−
ing properly. The TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunction indi−
cator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale (tire pressure
warning light). When the system det ects a malfunction, the telltale will
flash for approximately one minute an d then remain continuously illumi−
nated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start−ups as
long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indi cator is illumi−
nated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure
as intended.
338
5−2. Steps to take in an emergency
CAUTION
TPMS (tire pressure warning system ) malfunction may occur for a vari−
ety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires
or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS (tire pressure warning
system) from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS (tire pres−
sure warning system) malfunction te lltale after replacing one or more
tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alter−
nate tires and wheels allow the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) to
continue to function properly.
If the tire pressure warning light comes on
Be sure to observe the following precautions. Failure to do so could
cause loss of vehicle control and result in death or serious injury.
Stop your vehicle in a safe place as soon as possible. Adjust the tire
inflation pressure immediately.
If the tire pressure warning light comes on even after tire inflation pres−
sure adjustment, it is probable that you have a flat tire. Check the tires.
If the tire is flat, change to the spare tire and have the flat tire repaired
by the nearest Toyota dealer.
Avoid abrupt maneuvering and braking. If the vehicle tires deteriorate,
you could lose control of the steering wheel or the brakes.

If a blowout or sudden air leakage should occur
The tire pressure warning system may not activate immediately.

Fuel information
Your vehicle must use only unleaded gasoline.
Premium unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 91 (Research
Octane Number 96) or higher required for optimum engine
performance.
At minimum, the gasoline you us e should meet th e specifications
of ASTM D4814 in the U.S.A. and CGSB3.5−M93 in Canada.
Fuel tank opening for unleaded gasoline
To help prevent incorrect fueling, your Toyota has a fuel tank opening that
only accommodates the special nozzle on unleaded fuel pumps.
If premium gasoline is not available
If 91 rating gasoline cannot be obtained, you may use unleaded gasoline
with an octane rating as low as 87 (Research Octane Number 91).
If your engine knocks
Consult your Toyota dealer.
You may occasionally notice light knocking for a short time while
accelerating or driving uphill. This is normal and there is no need for
concern.
Gasoline quality
In very few cases, driveability problems may be caused by the brand of
gasoline you are using. If driveability problems persist, try changing the
brand of gasoline. If this does not correct the problem, consult your Toyota
dealer.
Gasoline quality standards
Automotive manufacturers in the US, Europe and Japan have developed
a specification for fuel quality called World−Wide Fuel Charter (WWFC)
that is expected to be applied worldwide.
The WWFC consists of four categories that are based on required
emission levels. In the US, category 4 has been adopted.
The WWFC improves air quality by lowering emissions in vehicle fleets,
and customer satisfaction through better performance.

6−1. Specifications
Toyota recommends the use of gasoline containing detergent additives
Toyota recommends the use of gasoline that contains detergent additives
to avoid build−up of engine deposits.
All gasoline sold in the US contains detergent additives to clean and/or
keep clean intake systems.
Toyota recommends the use of cleaner burning gasoline
Cleaner burning gasoline, including reformulated gasoline that contains
oxygenates such as ethanol or MTBE (Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether) is
available in many areas.
Toyota recommends the use of cleaner burning gasoline and appropriately
blended reformulated gasoline. These types of gasoline provide excellent
vehicle performance, reduce vehicle emissions and improve air quality.
Toyota does not recommend blended gasoline
Toyota allows the use of oxygenate blended gasoline where the
oxygenate content is up to 10% ethanol or 15% MTBE.
If you use gasohol in your Toyota, be sure that it has an octane rating no
lower than 91.
Toyota does not recommend the use of gasoline containing methanol.
Toyota does not recommend gasoline containing MMT
Some gasoline contains octane enhancing additive called MMT
(Methylcyclopentadienyl Manganese Tricarbonyl).
Toyota does not recommend the use of gasoline that contains MMT. If fuel
containing MMT is used, your emission control system may be adversely
affected.

NOTICE
Notice on gasoline quality
Do not use leaded gasoline.
Leaded gasoline can cause damage to your vehicle’s three−way catalytic
converters causing the emission control system to malfunction.
Do not use gasohol other than that stated here.
Other gasohol may cause fuel system damage or vehicle performance
problems.
Use of unleaded gasoline with an octane rating lower than 91 may result in
engine knocking. Persistent knocking can lead to engine damage and
should be corrected by refueling with higher octane unleaded gasoline.
Fuel−related poor driveability
If after using a different type of fuel, poor driveability is encountered (poor
hot starting, vaporization, engine knocking, etc.), discontinue the use of that
type of fuel.
When refueling with gasohol
Take care not to spill gasohol.
It can damage your vehicle’s paint.

Uniform tire quality grading
This information has been prepared in accordance with regulations
issued by the National Highway Tr affic Safety Administration of the
U.S.A. Department of Transportation.
It provides the purchasers and/or prospective purchasers of Toyota
vehicles with information on uniform tire quality grading.
Your Toyota dealer will help answ er any questions you may have as
you read this information.
DOT quality grades
All passenger vehicle tires mu
st 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
378
6−1. Specifications
Treadwear
The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear
rate of the tire when tested und
er controlled conditions on a
specified government test course.
For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and a half (1 − 1/2)
times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100.
The relative performance of tires depends upon the 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, C
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B and C,
and they represent the tire’s ab ility to stop on wet pavement as
measured under controlled cond itions 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 braking
(straight ahead) traction tests and does not include cornering
(turning) traction.
Temperature A, B, C
The temperature grades are
A (the highest), B, and C,
representing the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and its
ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on
a specified indoor laboratory test wheel.
The grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all
passenger car tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle
Safety Standard No. 109.
Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the
laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by law.
379
Vehicle specifications
Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to
degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead
to sudden tire failure.
6
6−1. Specifications
Warning: The temperature grades for this tire are established for a
tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.
Excessive speed, underinflation,
or excessive loading, either
separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible
tire failure.
