Do not overfill and use only the recommended Hyundai engine oil.
If the fluid level is excessively low, have the brake system checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer. Use only the specified brake fluid.
Never attempt to remove the radiator cap whilst the engine is operating or hot.
If frequent coolant refill is required, see an authorized HYUNDAI dealer for a cooling system inspection.
Use only the specified power steering fluid.
In the event the power steering system requires frequent addition of fluid, the vehicle should be inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
The reservoir is translucent so that you can check the level with a quick visual inspection. Check the fluid level in the washer fluid reservoir and add fluid if necessary. Plain water may be used if washer fluid is not available. However, use washer solvent with antifreeze characteristics in cold climates to prevent freezing.
Do not use radiator coolant or antifreeze in the washer fluid reservoir.
To equalize tread wear, it is recommended that the tires be rotated every 10,000 Km or sooner if irregular wear develops. During rotation, check the tires for correct balance.
When rotating tires, check for uneven wear and damage. Abnormal wear is usually caused by incorrect tire pressure, improper wheel alignment, out-of –balance wheels, severe braking or severe cornering. Look for bumps or bulges in the tread or side of tire.
Replace the tire if you find either of these conditions. Replace the tire if fabric or cord is visible. After rotation, be sure to bring the front and rear tire pressures to specification and check lug nut tightness.
A vehicle's electrical system is protected from electrical overload damage by fuses.
The vehicle has generally 2 (or 3) fuse panels, one located in the driver's side panel bolster, the other in the engine compartment near the battery.
If any of your vehicle's lights, accessories, or controls do not work, check the appropriate circuit fuse. If a fuse has blown, the element inside the fuse will be melted.
If the electrical system does not work, first check the driver’s side fuse panel. Always replace a blown fuse with one of the same rating.
If the headlights or other electrical components do not work and the fuses are OK, check the fuse block in the engine compartment. If a fuse is blown, it must be replaced.
If the replacement fuse blows, this indicates an electrical problem. Avoid using the system involved and immediately consult an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
After checking the fuse box in the engine compartment, securely install the fuse box cover. If not, electrical failures may occur from water leaking in.
The jack, jack handle, wheel brace are stored in the luggage compartment.
Pull up the luggage box cover to reach this equipment.
The jack is provided for emergency tire changing only. To prevent the jack from "rattling" whilst the vehicle is in motion, store it properly. Follow jacking instructions to reduce the possibility of personal injury.
Your spare tire is stored underneath your vehicle, directly below the cargo area.
If engine doesn't turn over or turns over slowly:
If engine turns over normally but does not start:
Jump starting can be dangerous if done incorrectly. Therefore, to avoid harm to yourself or damage to your vehicle or battery, follow the jump starting procedures. If in doubt, we strongly recommend that you have a competent technician or towing service to jump start your vehicle.
Use only a 12-volt jumper system. You can damage a 12-volt starting motor, ignition system, and other electrical parts beyond repair by use of a 24-volt power supply (either two 12-volt batteries in series or a 24-volt motor generator set).
If the cause of your battery discharging is not apparent, you should have your vehicle checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
Do not connect the jumper cable from the negative terminal of the booster battery to the negative terminal of the discharged battery. This can cause the discharged battery to overheat and crack, releasing battery acid.
Prior to working on the light, firmly apply the parking brake, ensure that the ignition switch is turned to the “LOCK” position and turn off the lights to avoid sudden movement of the vehicle and burning your fingers or receiving an electric shock.
Be sure to replace the burned-out bulb with one of the same wattage rating. Otherwise, it may cause damage to the fuse or electric wiring system.
If the headlight aiming adjustment is necessary after the headlight assembly is reinstalled, consult an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
