Before Driving

WARNING
Carbon monoxide (CO) gas is toxic. Breathing CO can cause unconsciousness and death. Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide which cannot be seen or smelled.

Do not inhale engine exhaust.
If at any time you smell engine exhaust inside the vehicle, open the windows immediately. Exposure to CO can cause unconsciousness and death by asphyxiation.

Be sure the exhaust system does not leak.
The exhaust system should be checked whenever the vehicle is raised to change the oil or for any other purpose. If you hear a change in the sound of the exhaust or if you drive over something that strikes the underneath side of the vehicle, have the exhaust system be checked as soon as possible by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Do not run the engine in an enclosed area.
Letting the engine idle in your garage, even with the garage door open, is a hazardous practice. Run the engine only long enough to start the engine and to move the vehicle out of the garage. Avoid idling the engine for prolonged periods with people inside the vehicle. If it is necessary to idle the engine for a prolonged period with people inside the vehicle, be sure to do so only in an open area with the air intake set at “Fresh” and fan control set to high so fresh air is drawn into the interior.

Keep the air intake clear.
To ensure proper operation of the ventilation system, keep the ventilation air intakes located in front of the windshield clear of snow, ice, leaves, or other obstructions.

If you must drive with the liftgate open:

  • Close all windows.
    Open instrument panel air vents.
    Set the air intake control at “Fresh”, the airflow control at “Floor” or “Face”, and the fan control set to high.

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING
Engine exhaust and a wide variety of automobile components including components found in the interior furnishings in a vehicle, contain or emit harmful chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer birth defects, and reproductive harm. In addition, certain fluids contained in vehicles and certain product components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

BEFORE DRIVING

Before Entering the Vehicle

  • Be sure all windows, outside mirror(s), and outside lights are clean and unobstructed.
  • Remove frost, snow, or ice.
  • Visually check the tires for uneven wear and damage.
  • Check under the vehicle for any signs of leaks.
  • Be sure there are no obstacles behind you if you intend to back up.

Before Starting

  • Make sure the hood, the liftgate, and the doors are securely closed and locked.
  • Adjust the position of the seat and steering wheel.
  • Adjust the inside and side view mirrors.
  • Verify all the lights work.
  • Fasten your seat belt. Check that all passengers have fastened their seat belts.
  • Check the gauges and indicators in the instrument panel and the messages on the instrument display when the Engine Start/Stop button is in the ON position.
  • Check that any items you are carrying are stored properly or fastened down securely.

WARNING
To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH, take the following precautions:

  • ALWAYS wear your seat belt. All passengers must be properly belted whenever the vehicle is moving. For more information, refer to the “Seat Belts” section in Chapter 3.
  • Always drive defensively. Assume other drivers or pedestrians may be careless and make mistakes.
  • Stay focused on the task of driving.
  • Driver distraction can cause accidents.
  • Leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you.

WARNING
NEVER drink or take drugs and drive. Drinking or taking drugs and driving is dangerous and may result in an accident and SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH. Drunk driving is the number one contributor to the highway death toll each year. Even a small amount of alcohol will affect your reflexes, perceptions, and judgment. Just one drink can reduce your ability to respond to changing conditions and emergencies and your reaction time gets worse with each additional drink. Driving while under the influence of drugs is as dangerous as or more dangerous than driving under the influence of alcohol. You are much more likely to have a serious accident if you drink or take drugs and drive. If you are drinking or taking drugs, don’t drive. Do not ride with a driver who has been drinking or taking drugs. Choose a designated driver or call a taxi.
