Maximum Load Limit
The maximum load for your vehicle is 850 lbs (385 kg).

See Tire and Loading Information label attached to the driver’s doorjamb.

Overloading or improper loading
can affect handling and stability
and cause a crash in which you
can be hurt or killed.

loading guidelines in this manual.

occupants, all accessories, and all cargo.
Steps for Determining Correct Load Limit —
2 Specifications P. 346
(1) Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and
Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR):
cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.” on your

vehicle’s placard.
(2) Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers
that will be riding in your vehicle.
(3) Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers
from XXX kg or XXX lbs.
(4) The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and
luggage load capacity. For example, if the “XXX” amount
equals 1,400 lbs. and there will be five 150 lb. passengers in
your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load
capacity is 650 lbs.
(1,400 — 750 (5 x 150) = 650 lbs.)
Continued
223

uuBefore DrivinguMaximum Load Limit
(5) Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being
loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the
available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in step 4.
(6) If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will
be transferred to your vehicle. Consult this manual to
determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage
load capacity of your vehicle.
In addition, the total weight of the vehicle, all occupants,
accessories, cargo, and trailer tongue load must not exceed the
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or the Gross Axle Weight
Rating (GAWR). Both are on a label on the driver’s doorjamb.

the EPS system is restored.
Repeated operation 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

During the first 600 miles (1,000 km) of operation,
avoid sudden acceleration or full throttle operation so

Avoid hard braking for the first 200 miles (300 km).
You should also follow this when the brake pads are
replaced.
