What to do in an emergency
Use a towing cable or chain less
than 16 feet (5 m) long. Attach a
white or red cloth (about 12 inches
(30 cm) wide) in the middle of the
cable or chain for easy visibility.
Drive carefully so the towing cable
or chain remains tight during tow-
Before towing, check the dual
clutch transmission for fluid leaks
under your vehicle. If the dual
clutch transmission fluid is leaking,
flatbed equipment or a towing dolly
must be used.Accelerate or decelerate the vehi-
cle in a slow and gradual manner
while maintaining tension on the
tow rope or chain to start or drive
the vehicle, otherwise tow hooks
and the vehicle may be damaged.To avoid damage to your vehicle
and vehicle components when
Always pull straight ahead when
using the towing hooks. Do not
pull from the side or at a vertical
Do not use the towing hooks to
pull a vehicle out of mud, sand
or other conditions from which
the vehicle cannot be driven out
under its own power.
The vehicle should be towed at a
speed of 15 mph (25 km/h) or
less within the distance of 12
mph (20 km).

Owner Maintenance Schedule
When you stop for fuel:
• Check the engine oil level.
Check the coolant level in the
engine coolant reservoir.
Check the windshield washer fluid
Check for low or under-inflated
While operating your vehicle:
Note any changes in the sound of
the exhaust or any smell of
exhaust fumes in the vehicle.
Check for vibrations in the steering
wheel. Notice if there is any
increased steering effort or loose-
ness in the steering wheel, or
change in its straight-ahead posi-
Notice if your vehicle constantly
turns slightly or "pulls" to one side
when traveling on smooth, level
When stopping, listen and check
for unusual sounds, pulling to one
side, increased brake pedal travel
or "hard-to-push" brake pedal.
If any slipping or changes in the
operation of your transmission
occurs, check the transmission
Check the dual clutch transmission
P (Park) function.
Check the parking brake.
Check for fluid leaks under your
vehicle (water dripping from the air
conditioning system during or after
use is normal). Be careful when checking your
engine coolant/inverter coolant
level when the engine is hot.
This may result in coolant being
blown out of the opening and
cause serious burns and other
Page 488 of 635
At least monthly:
Check coolant level in the engine
Check the operation of all exterior
lights, including the brake lights,
turn signals and hazard warning
Check the inflation pressures of all
tires including the spare for tires
that are worn, show uneven wear,
or are damaged.
Check for loose wheel lug nuts.
At least twice a year:
(i.e., every Spring and Fall)
Check radiator, heater and air con-
ditioning hoses for leaks or dam-
Check windshield washer spray
and wiper operation. Clean wiper
blades with a clean cloth damp-
ened with washer fluid.
Check headlamp alignment.
Check muffler, exhaust pipes,
shields and clamps.
Check the seat belts for wear and
At least once a year:
Clean body and door drain holes.
Lubricate door hinges and hood
Lubricate door and hood locks and
Lubricate door rubber weather
Lubricate door checker.
Check the air conditioning system.
Inspect and lubricate transmission
linkage and controls.
Clean the battery and terminals.
Check the brake fluid level.Follow Normal Maintenance Schedule
if the vehicle is usually operated where
none of the following conditions apply.
If any of the following conditions apply,
you must follow the Maintenance
Under Severe Usage Conditions.
Repeated short distance driving.
Driving in dusty conditions or
Extensive use of brakes.
Driving in areas where salt or other
corrosive materials are used.
Driving on rough or muddy roads.
Driving in mountainous areas.
Extended periods of idling or low
Driving for a prolonged period in
cold temperatures and/or extreme-
ly humid climates.
More than 50% driving in heavy
city traffic during hot weather
above 90°F (32°C).

Dual Clutch Transmission
The dual clutch transmission fluid
should be inspected according to the
intervals specified in the mainte-
Engine Clutch Actuator Fluid
The engine clutch actuator fluid level
should be inspected or replaced to
the intervals specified in the mainte-
Brake Hoses and Lines
Visually check for proper installation,
chafing, cracks, deterioration and
any leakage. Replace any deteriorat-
ed or damaged parts immediately.
Check the brake fluid level in the
brake the fluid reservoir. The level
should be between the MIN and the
MAX marks on the side of the reser-
voir. Use only hydraulic brake fluid
conforming to DOT 4 specification.
Inspect the parking brake system
including the parking brake pedal
Brake Discs, Pads, Calipers
Check the pads for excessive wear,
discs for run out and wear, and
calipers for fluid leakage.
Exhaust Pipe and Muffler
Visually inspect the exhaust pipes,
muffler and hangers for cracks, dete-
rioration, or damage. Start the engine
and listen carefully for any exhaust
gas leakage. Tighten connections or
replace parts as necessary.
Suspension Mounting Bolts
Check the suspension connections
for looseness or damage. Retighten

*1: Refer to the recommended SAE viscosity numbers on the next page.
*2: Engine oils labeled Energy Conserving Oil are now available. Along with other additional benefits, they contribute to fuel econ-
omy by reducing the amount of fuel necessary to overcome engine friction. Often, these improvements are difficult to measure
in everyday driving, but in a year's time, they can offer significant cost and energy savings.
3: If the ACEA C2 engine oil is not available in your country, you are able to use ILSAC GF-3 (or above) or ACEA A3 (or above).
