Your HYUNDAI should not be modified in any way.
Such modifications may adversely affect the per-
formance, safety or durability of your HYUNDAI
and may, in addition, violate conditions of the limit-
ed warranties covering the vehicle. Certain modifi-
cations may also be in violation of regulations
established by the U.S. Department of
Transportation and other federal or state agencies.
Your vehicle is equipped with electronic fuel injec-
tion and other electronic components. It is possible
for an improperly installed/adjusted two-way radio
or cellular telephone to adversely affect electronic
systems. For this reason, we recommend that you
carefully follow the radio manufacturer's instruc-
tions or consult your HYUNDAI dealer for precau-
tionary measures or special instructions if you
choose to install one of these devices.

which, if not avoided, could result
in vehicle damage. Your new vehicle is designed to
obtain maximum performance with
UNLEADED FUEL, as well as mini-
mize exhaust emissions and spark
Your new vehicle is designed to use
only unleaded fuel having an octane
number ((R+M)/2) of 87 (Research
Octane Number 91) or higher. (Do not
use methanol blended fuels)
To prevent damage to the engine
and engine components, never
add any fuel system cleaning
agents to the fuel tank other than
what has been specified.
Consult an authorized HYUNDAI
dealer for additional information.
Gasoline containing alcohol or
Gasohol, a mixture of gasoline and
ethanol (also known as grain alco-
hol) are being marketed along with or
instead of leaded or unleaded gaso-
line. For example, "E15" is a gasohol
comprised of 15% ethanol and 85%
Do not use gasohol containing more
than 15% ethanol, and do not use
gasoline or gasohol containing any
methanol. Either of these fuels may
cause drivability problems and dam-
age to the fuel system, engine con-
trol system and emission control sys-
Discontinue using gasohol of any
kind if drivability problems occur.

situation which, if not avoided,

•Do not "top off" after the noz-
zle automatically shuts off
Always check that the fuel cap
is installed securely to pre-
vent fuel spillage in the event
of an accident.

"E85" fuel is an alternative fuel com-
prised of 85 percent ethanol and 15
percent gasoline, and is manufac-
tured exclusively for use in Flexible
Fuel Vehicles. "E85" is not compati-
ble with your vehicle. Use of "E85"
may result in poor engine perform-
ance and damage to your vehicle's
engine and fuel system. HYUNDAI
recommends that customers do not
use fuel with an ethanol content
exceeding 15 percent.
To prevent damage to your vehicle’s
engine and fuel system:
Never use gasohol which con- tains methanol.
Never use gasohol containing more than 15% ethanol.
Never use leaded fuel or leaded gasohol.
Never use "E85" fuel.
Your New Vehicle Limited
Warranty does not cover damage
to the fuel system or any perform-
ance problems caused by the use
of "E85" fuel.
Using Fuel Additives (except Detergent Fuel Additives)
Using fuel additives such as:
- Silicone fuel additive
- Ferrocene (iron-based) fuel additive
- Other metallic-based fuel additives
may result in cylinder misfire, poor
acceleration, engine stalling, dam-
age to the catalyst, or abnormal cor-
rosion, and may cause damage to
the engine resulting in a reduction in
the overall life of the powertrain.
- The Malfunction Indicator Lamp
(MIL) may illuminate.
Damage to the fuel system or per-
formance problem caused by the
use of these fuels or fuel additives
may not be covered by your New
Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Gasoline containing MMT
Some gasoline contains harmful
manganese-based fuel additives
HYUNDAI does not recommend the
use of gasoline containing MMT.
This type of fuel can reduce vehicle
performance and affect your emis-
sion control system.
The malfunction indicator lamp on
the cluster may come on.
Detergent Fuel Additives
HYUNDAI recommends that you use
good quality gasolines treated with
detergent additives such as TOP TIER
Detergent Gasoline, which help pre-
vent deposit formation in the engine.
These gasolines will help the engine
run cleaner and enhance performance
of the Emission Control System. For
more information on TOP TIER
Detergent Gasoline, please go to the
Page 9 of 663
For customers who do not use TOP
Tier Detergent Gasoline regularly,
and have problems starting or the
engine does not run smoothly, deter-
gent-based fuel additives that you
can purchase separately may be
added to the gasoline. If TOP TIER
Detergent Gasoline is not available,
one bottle of additive added to the
fuel tank according to the mainte-
nance schedule is recommended
(refer to the Maintenance Schedule
in chapter 7).
Additives are available from your
authorized HYUNDAI dealer along
with information on how to use them.
Do not mix other additives.
Operation in foreign countries
If you are going to drive your vehicle
in another country, be sure to:
• Observe all regulations regarding registration and insurance.
Determine that acceptable fuel is available. This vehicle should not be modi-
fied. Modification of your vehicle
could affect its performance, safety
or durability and may even violate
governmental safety and emis-
In addition, damage or perform-
ance problems resulting from any
modification may not be covered
If you use unauthorized electronic devices, it may cause the vehicle to
operate abnormally, wire damage,
battery discharge and fire. For your
safety, do not use unauthorized
electronic devices. By following a few simple precautions
for the first 600 miles (1,000 km) you
may add to the performance, econo-
my and life of your vehicle.
Do not race the engine.
While driving, keep your engine
speed (rpm, or revolutions per
minute) between 2,000 rpm and
Do not maintain a single speed for long periods of time, either fast or
slow. Varying engine speed is need-
ed to properly break-in the engine.
Avoid hard stops, except in emer- gencies, to allow the brakes to seat
properly. Do not tow a trailer during
the first 1,200 miles (2,000 km) of

engines may consume more oil
during the vehicle break-in period.

IntroductionThis vehicle is equipped with an
event data recorder (EDR). The
main purpose of an EDR is to
record, in certain crash or near
crash-like situations, such as an
air bag deployment or hitting a
road obstacle, data that will assist
in understanding how a vehicle’s
systems performed. The EDR is
designed to record data related to
vehicle dynamics and safety sys-
tems for a short period of time,
typically 30 seconds or less. The
EDR in this vehicle is designed to
record such data as:
How various systems in yourvehicle were operating;
Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were
How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator
and/or brake pedal; and,
How fast the vehicle was travel- ing.
These data can help provide a bet-
ter understanding of the circum-
stances in which crashes and
injuries occur. NOTE: EDR data are recorded by
your vehicle only if a non-trivial
crash situation occurs; no data
are recorded by the EDR under
normal driving conditions and no
personal data (e.g., name, gender,
age, and crash location) are
recorded. However, other parties,
such as law enforcement, could
combine the EDR data with the
type of personally identifying data
routinely acquired during a crash
To read data recorded by an EDR,
special equipment is required, and
access to the vehicle or the EDR is
needed. In addition to the vehicle
manufacturer, other parties, such
as law enforcement, that have the
special equipment, can read the
information if they have access to
the vehicle or the EDR.
Vehicle break-in process Fuel
economy and engine performance
may vary depending on vehicle
break-in process and be stabilized
after 4,000 miles (6,000 km). New
engines may consume more oil
during the vehicle break-in period.
