Hill start assist system

Hill start assist keeps the brake engaged briefly to help prevent the vehicle from rolling on inclines as you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator.

Continuously variable transmission models
Put the transmission into (D, (S*, or (L* when facing uphill, or (R when facing downhill, then release the brake pedal.

Manual transmission models
Depress the clutch pedal, and shift to one of the forward gears when facing uphill, or (R when facing downhill, then release the brake pedal.

Engine Restart Function
If the engine stalls, fully depress the clutch pedal within three seconds. The engine may automatically restart under certain conditions. Otherwise, follow the standard procedure. Starting the Engine P. 448

You can also release the parking brake by pressing the electric parking brake switch while depressing the brake pedal.
When facing downhill, you can start your vehicle more smoothly by manually releasing it with the electric parking brake switch than by releasing it with the accelerator pedal.

Hill start assist system
Hill start assist may not prevent the vehicle from rolling downhill on a very steep or slippery slope, and will not operate on small inclines.
Hill start assist is not a replacement for the parking brake. Hill start assist will operate even when VSA® is switched off.

Stopping the Engine

You can turn the engine off when the vehicle is completely stopped.

Precautions While Driving

In Rain
Avoid driving in deep water and on flooded roads. This can damage the engine or driveline, or cause electrical component failure.

Other Precautions
If there is a strong impact with something under the vehicle, stop in a safe location. Check the underside of the vehicle for damage or any fluid leaks.

Continuously variable transmission models
Do not operate the shift lever while pressing the accelerator pedal. You could damage the transmission.

If you repeatedly turn the steering wheel at an extremely low speed, or hold the steering wheel in the full left or right position for a while, the electric power steering (EPS) system heats up. The system goes into a protective mode and limits its performance. The steering wheel becomes harder and harder to operate. Once the system cools down, the EPS system is restored.

Repeated operations under these conditions can eventually damage the system.
If the power mode is set to ACCESSORY while driving, the engine will shut down and all steering and brake power assist functions will stop, making it difficult to control the vehicle. Do not select (N while driving as you will lose engine braking (and acceleration) performance. During the first 600 miles (1,000 km) of operation, avoid sudden acceleration or full-throttle operation so as not to damage the engine or powertrain.

Continuously Variable Transmission

When the engine runs at higher idle speeds, the creeping force increases. Keep the brake pedal firmly depressed when stopped.

Quickly depressing the accelerator pedal while driving uphill may cause the transmission to drop to a lower ratio, unexpectedly increasing vehicle speed. Depress the accelerator pedal carefully, especially on slippery roads and curves. Avoid hard braking for the first 200 miles (300 km) after purchasing your new vehicle or replacing the brake pads or rotors, to allow for proper break-in.

The following can damage the under spoiler:

  • Parking the vehicle by a parking block
  • Parallel parking along the road shoulder
  • Driving toward the bottom of a hill
  • Driving up or down to a different surface level (such as a road shoulder)
  • Driving on a rutted or bumpy road
  • Driving on a road with potholes
