Tire Repair Kit*
If a tire has a small puncture, you can use the tire repair kit to temporarily repair it. The
puncture must be smaller than 3/16-inch (4 mm) and not in the tire sidewall. Go to a dealer
to have the full-size tire permanently repaired or replaced.
Before Repairing the Tire
1. Park the vehicle on firm, level, non-slippery surface.
2. Move the shift lever to Park (P), and apply the parking brake.
3. Turn on the hazard warning lights and turn the vehicle off.
Getting Ready to Repair the Tire
1. Pull the handle on the cargo area floor lid and open the
lid.
2. Remove the cargo floor box.
3. Remove the kit from the case.
4. Place the kit face up on flat ground near the punctured
tire and away from traffic. Do not place the kit on its
side.
5. Follow the instructions in the kit to repair the tire.
Do not use a puncture-repairing agent other than the one provided in the kit that came
with your vehicle. If a different agent is used, you may permanently damage the tire
pressure sensor.

MAINTENANCE
HANDLING THE UNEXPECTED
Inspecting and Changing Fuses
1. Turn off the vehicle, including headlights and all
accessories.
2. Remove the fuse box cover.
3. Check the large fuse in the engine compartment If the
fuse is blown, use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove
the screws and replace the fuse with a new one. Reinstall
the screws.
4. Inspect the small fuses in the engine compartment and
the vehicle interior. If there is a burned out fuse, remove
it with the fuse puller and replace it with a new one.
Replacing a fuse with one that has a higher rating greatly increases the chances
of damaging the electrical system.

Trying to lift or tow your vehicle by the bumpers will cause serious damage. The bumpers
are not designed to support the vehicle’s weight.
Improper towing such as towing behind a motorhome or other motor vehicle can damage
the transmission.
Emergency Towing
Call a professional towing service if you need to tow your vehicle.
All models
Flat bed equipment: The operator loads your vehicle on the back of a truck.
This is the best
way to transport your vehicle.
2WD models
Wheel lift equipment: The tow truck uses two pivoting arms that go under the front tires
and lift them off the ground. The rear tires remain on the ground.
This is an acceptable way
to tow your vehicle.
