FUEL TANK CAPACITY/FUEL RECOMMENDATIONS:Your Aviator’s fuel tank can accommodate 22.5
gallons of fuel. Your vehicle is designed to use “Premium” unleaded fuel with an (R+M)/2 octane
rating of 91 or higher for optimum performance. The use of fuel with lower octane ratings may
FUSES:If electrical components in your vehicle stop working, a fuse may have blown. (You’ll notice a
broken wire within the fuse.) For information on changing fuses, please consult your Owner’s Guide.
TIRE PRESSURE:Your tire pressure is properly set at the dealership according to the
recommended specifications found on the Tire Pressure Label located on the driver door jamb. Please
check your tire pressure during routine maintenance and seasonal changes. If the Tire Pressure
Monitoring System light stays illuminated after starting, immediately check your tire pressure.
Warning: Improperly inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly, possibly resulting
in loss of vehicle control.
CHANGING THE TIRES:Your spare tire is not equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system
sensor. The tire pressure monitoring system indicator light (if equipped) will illuminate when the
spare is in use. Replace the spare with the road tire as soon as possible. If your vehicle is equipped
with AWD, remember that a spare tire of a different size shall not be used. It can make your vehicle
difficult to control and can result in damage to driveline components. If you get a flat tire while
driving, do not apply the brake heavily. Instead, gradually decrease your speed. Hold the steering
wheel firmly and slowly move to a safe place on the side of the road.

the OFF position.) To turn the system off, rotate the control
clockwise to the OFF position.
3 ABS Light
Your anti-lock braking system (ABS) detects the onset of wheel lockup
during brake applications and helps prevent wheels from locking
during extreme braking situations. The ABS warning light will
illuminate when you start your engine; however, if it stays on,
continues to flash or fails to illuminate, see your dealership's service
You must be traveling at or above 30 miles per hour to use the
speed control system. Press ON to enable speed control. Press

is reached, press SET + /SET -. To return to a previously set speed,
press RES. To disengage speed control and erase the previously
programmed set speed, press OFF.
12Parking Brake Release
Pull the release lever to release the parking brake. Driving with the
parking brake on will cause the brakes to wear out quickly and
reduce fuel economy. The parking brake is not recommended to
stop a moving vehicle. However, if the normal brakes fail, the
parking brake can be used to stop your vehicle in an emergency.
Since the parking brake applies only the rear brakes, the vehicle’s
stopping distance will increase greatly and the handling of your
vehicle will be adversely affected.
11Advance Trac™ (if equipped)
By monitoring vehicle speed, yaw, lateral acceleration, and
intended direction, the AdvanceTrac™ system provides enhanced

become stuck, try switching the system off by pressing the
AdvanceTrac™ button on the center console. When the system is
functioning, a yellow icon will flash.

4Service Engine Soon
This light will illuminate briefly when you start your vehicle to ensure
that the engine warning system is functional. If it comes on after the
engine is started, one of your engine’s emission control systems
may be malfunctioning. Or, it may stay on because your vehicle is out
of fuel, existing fuel quality is poor, or the fuel cap hasn’t been
properly tightened. If you have added high quality fuel or tightened
the fuel cap and the light continues to stay on, remember that it can
take three driving cycles for the light to turn off. (A driving cycle
consists of a cold engine startup followed by mixed city/highway
driving.) No additional vehicle service would be required.
