●Underneath the bumper and the corner
areas of the bumper cannot be viewed
on the RearView Monitor because of its
monitoring range limitation. The system
will not show small objects below the
bumper, and may not show objects
close to the bumper or on the ground.
● Objects viewed in the RearView Moni-
tor differ from actual distance because
a wide-angle lens is used.
● Objects in a RearView Monitor will ap-
pear visually opposite than when
viewed in the rear view and outside
● Make sure that the trunk is securely
closed when backing up.
● Do not put anything on the rearview
camera. The rearview camera is in-
stalled above the license plate.
● When washing the vehicle with high
pressure water, be sure not to spray it
around the camera. Otherwise, water
may enter the camera unit causing wa-
ter condensation on the lens, a mal-
function, fire or an electric shock. ●
Do not strike the camera. It is a preci-
sion instrument. Otherwise, it may mal-
function or cause damage resulting in a
fire or an electric shock.
There is a plastic cover over the camera.
Do not scratch the cover when cleaning
dirt or snow from the cover.

Vehicle width guide lines5
Indicate the vehicle width when backing up.
Predicted course lines
Indicate the predicted course when backing up.
The predicted course lines will be displayed on
the monitor when the shift selector is in the R
(Reverse) position and the steering wheel is
turned. The predicted course lines will move de-
pending on how much the steering wheel is
turned and will not be displayed while the steer-
ing wheel is in the straight-ahead position.
The vehicle width guide lines and the width of the
predicted course lines are wider than the actual
width and course.
HOW TO PARK WITH PREDICTED
●Always turn and check that it is safe to
do so before backing up. Always back
● Use the displayed lines as a reference.
The lines are highly affected by the
number of occupants, fuel level, vehicle
position, road conditions and road
If the tires are replaced with different
sized tires, the predicted course lines
may be displayed incorrectly.
● On a snow-covered or slippery road,
there may be a difference between the
predicted course line and the actual
● If the battery is disconnected or be-
comes discharged, the predicted course
lines may be displayed incorrectly. If
this occurs, please perform the follow-
– Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock while the engine is running.
– Drive the vehicle on a straight road for more than 5 minutes.
● When the steering wheel is turned with
the ignition switch in the ACC position,
the predicted course lines may be dis-
played incorrectly. ●
The distance guide line and the vehicle
width line should be used as a reference
only when the vehicle is on a level
paved surface. The distance viewed on
the monitor is for reference only and
may be different than the actual dis-
tance between the vehicle and dis-
● When backing up the vehicle up a hill,
objects viewed in the monitor are fur-
ther than they appear. When backing up
the vehicle down a hill, objects viewed
in the monitor are closer than they ap-
pear. Use the inside mirror or glance
over your shoulder to properly judge
distances to other objects.

distance viewed on the monitor is for reference
only and may be different than the actual distance
between the vehicle and displayed objects.

Backing up on a steep uphill
When backing up the vehicle up a hill, the dis-
tance guide lines and the vehicle width guide
lines are shown closer than the actual distance.
For example, the display shows 1.0 m (3 ft) to the
A, but the actual 1.0 m (3 ft) distance onthe hill is the place
B. Note that any object on
the hill is further than it appears on the monitor.
Backing up on a steep downhill
When backing up the vehicle down a hill, the
distance guide lines and the vehicle width guide
lines are shown farther than the actual distance.
For example, the display shows 1.0 m (3 ft) to the
A, but the actual 1.0 m (3 ft) distance on

jects. This is not a malfunction.

era, objects may not be displayed clearly.

from the bumper. This is not a malfunction.
● The screen may flicker under fluorescent
light. This is not a malfunction.

● The air conditioner cooling function op-
erates only when the engine is running.
● Do not leave children or adults who
would normally require the assistance
of others alone in your vehicle. Pets
should also not be left alone. They
could accidentally injure themselves or
others through inadvertent operation of
the vehicle. Also, on hot, sunny days,
temperatures in a closed vehicle could
quickly become high enough to cause
severe or possibly fatal injuries to
people or animals. ●
Do not use the recirculation mode for
long periods as it may cause the interior
air to become stale and the windows to
NOTE: ● Odors from inside and outside the vehicle
can build up in the air conditioner unit. Odor
can enter the passenger compartment
through the vents.
● When parking, set the heater and air condi-
tioner controls to turn off air recirculation to
allow fresh air into the passenger compart-
ment. This should help reduce odors inside
Start the engine and operate the controls to
activate the air conditioner.

This mode may be normally used all year round as
the system automatically works to keep a con-
stant temperature. Air flow distribution and fan
speed are also controlled automatically. 1. Press the AUTO button on. (AUTO will be displayed.)
