The Blind Spot Monitor is a system that assists the driver to confirm safety when
changing lanes. The system uses radar sensors to detect vehicles that are traveling
in an adjacent lane in the area that is not reflected in the outside rearview mirror
(the blind spot), and advises the driver of the vehicles’ existence via the outside
rearview mirror indicator.

After adjusting tire pressures, or after tires have been rotated or replaced, turn
the ignition switch to “ON” and press and hold the “ SET” button until indicator

If the tire pressure indicator flashes for more than 60 seconds and then remains on,
take the vehicle to your local Toyota dealer.
NOTE: The warning light may come on due to temperature changes or changes
in tire pressure from natural air leakage. If the system has not been initialized
recently, setting the tire pressures to factory specifications should turn off the
light.

SAFETY AND EMERGENCY FEATURES
Star Safety SystemTM
All new Toyota vehicles come standard with the Star Safety SystemTM, which
combines Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock
Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA)
and Smart Stop Technology (SST).
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
VSC helps prevent loss of traction during cornering by reducing engine power and
applying brake force to selected wheels.
Toyota’s VSC monitors steering angle and the direction your vehicle is traveling.
When it senses that the front or rear wheels begin to lose traction, VSC reduces
engine power and applies braking to selected wheels. This helps restore traction
and vehicle control.
Traction Control (TRAC)
VSC helps prevent loss of traction during cornering by reducing engine power, and
Traction Control helps maintain traction on loose gravel and wet, icy, or uneven
surfaces by applying brake force to the spinning wheel(s).
Toyota’s TRAC sensors are activated when one of the drive wheels starts to slip.
TRAC limits engine output and applies the brakes to the spinning wheel. This
transfers power to the wheels that still have traction to help keep you on track.
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
ABS helps prevent brakes from locking up by “pulsing” brake pressure to each
wheel. This limits brake lockup and helps provide directional control for the
current road conditions.
Toyota’s ABS sensors detect which wheels are locking up and limits wheel lockup
by “pulsing” each wheel’s brakes independently. Pulsing releases brake pressure
repeatedly for fractions of a second. This helps the tires attain the traction that
current road conditions will allow, helping you to stay in directional control.
Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD)
Toyota’s ABS technology has Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) to help
maintain control and balance when braking. Abrupt stops can cause a vehicle
to tilt forward, reducing the braking power of the rear wheels. EBD responds to
sudden stops by redistributing brake force to enhance the braking effectiveness of
all four wheels.
Brake Assist (BA)
Brake Assist is designed to detect sudden or “panic” braking, and then add braking
pressure to help decrease the vehicle’s stopping distance. When there’s only a
split second to react, Brake Assist can add additional brake pressure more quickly
than just the driver alone can.
34
Smart Stop Technology (SST)
SST engages when the accelerator is depressed first and the brakes are applied
firmly for longer than one-half second at speeds greater than five miles per hour.
OVERVIEW
Smart Stop Technology automatically reduces engine power when the accelerator
and brake pedals are pressed simultaneously under certain conditions.
SST doesn’t engage if the brake pedal is depressed before the accelerator pedal,
allowing vehicles to start on a steep hill and safely accelerate without rolling
backward.
Floor mat installation
There are two types of Toyota floor mats: carpeted and all-weather. Each vehicle
has model-specific floor mats. Installation is easy.
To keep your floor mat properly positioned, follow these steps:
Always align the Δ marks
FEATURES/OPERATIONS
• Only use floor mats designed for your specific model.
• Use only one floor mat at a time, using the retaining hooks to keep the mat in
place.
• Install floor mats right side up.
