has been increased to handle the high
load on the rear spoiler during vehicle
operation. This does not indicate that
there is a malfunction. Check that the
trunk is securely locked.

and highly explosive under certain
conditions. You could be burned or
seriously injured if it is misused or

and do not smoke or allow open
flames or sparks near the vehicle

resulting in fuel spray and possibly
. Use only an original equipment type
fuel-filler cap as a replacement. It
has a built-in safety valve needed
for proper operation of the fuel
system and emission control sys-
tem. An incorrect cap can result in a
serious malfunction and possible
injury. It could also cause the mal-
function indicator light to come on.
