is done, it can help you learn about the features

and controls for the vehicle. Pictures and words work together in the owner manual to explain things.

Safety Warnings and Symbols

There are a number of safety cautions in this book. We use a box and the word CAUTION to tell about things that could hurt you if you were to ignore the warning.

{CAUTION:

These mean there is something that could hurt you or other people.

In the caution area, we tell you what the hazard is. Then we tell you what to do to help avoid or reduce the hazard. Please read these cautions. If you do not, you or others could be hurt.

You will also find a circle with a slash through it in this book. This safety symbol means “Do Not,” “Do Not do this” or

“Do Not let this happen.”

iii

Vehicle Damage Warnings

Also, in this manual you will find these notices:

Notice: These mean there is something that could damage your vehicle.

A notice tells about something that can damage the vehicle. Many times, this damage would not be covered by your vehicle’s warranty, and it could be costly. But the notice will tell what to do to help avoid the damage.

When you read other manuals, you might see CAUTION and NOTICE warnings in different colors or in different words.

There are also warning labels on the vehicle. They use the same words, CAUTION or NOTICE.

Vehicle Symbols

The vehicle has components and labels that use symbols instead of text. Symbols are shown along with the text describing the operation or information relating to a specific component, control, message, gage, or indicator.

If you need help figuring out a specific name of a component, gage, or indicator, reference the following topics:

Manual Seats

{CAUTION:

You can lose control of the vehicle if you try to adjust a manual driver’s seat while the vehicle is moving. The sudden movement could startle and confuse you, or make you push a pedal when you do not want to. Adjust the driver’s seat only when the vehicle is not moving.

Lift the bar located under the front of the seat to unlock it. Slide the seat to where you want it and release the bar. Try to move the seat with your body to be sure the seat is locked in place.

1-3

Power Seats

If you have this feature, the power seat controls are

 

located on the outboard side of the front seat cushions.

 

The horizontal control adjusts the seat cushion and

 

 

the vertical control adjusts the seatback.

 

Move the front of the seat control up or down to

 

 

adjust the front portion of the cushion.

 

Move the rear of the seat control up or down to

 

 

adjust the rear portion of the cushion.

 

Lift up or push down on the center of the seat

 

 

control to move the entire seat up or down.

 

To move the seat forward or rearward, slide the

Manual Lumbar

If your vehicle has this feature, there is a knob located on the outboard side of the driver’s seat.

Turn the knob counterclockwise to increase lumbar support and clockwise to decrease lumbar support.

Power Lumbar

Your vehicle may have this feature.

The control is located on the outboard side of the seat cushion.

To increase or decrease support, hold the control forward or rearward. Keep in mind that as your seating position changes, as it may during long trips, so should the position of your lumbar support. Adjust the seat as needed.

1-5

Heated Seats

Your vehicle may have heated front seats. The buttons used to control this feature are located on

the front door armrests. The engine must be running for the heated seat feature to work.

To heat the entire seat, press the horizontal button with the heated seat symbol. Press the button repeatedly

to cycle through the temperature settings of high, medium, low and off. The indicator lights above the button will glow to designate the level of heat selected: three for high, two for medium, and one for low.

The low setting warms the seatback and seat cushion until the seat temperature is near body temperature. The medium and high settings heat the seatback and seat cushion to a slightly higher temperature. You will be able to feel heat in about two minutes.

To heat only the seatback, press the button with the words BACK ONLY. An indicator light on the switch will glow to designate that only the seatback is being heated. Additional presses will cycle through the

heat levels for the seatback only. Press the horizontal button again to heat the whole seat.

The feature will shut off automatically when the ignition is turned off.
