Caution (Continued)

to freeze and damage the washer fluid tank and other parts of the washer system.

. When using concentrated washer fluid, follow the

manufacturer instructions for adding water.

. Fill the washer fluid tank only three-quarters full when it is

very cold. This allows for

fluid expansion if freezing

occurs, which could damage the tank if it is

completely full.


Disc brake pads have built-in wear

indicators that make a high-pitched warning sound when the brake pads are worn and new pads are needed.

The sound can come and go or can be heard all the time when the vehicle is moving, except when applying the

brake pedal firmly.



{ Warning

The brake wear warning sound

means that soon the brakes will not work well. That could lead to a

crash. When the brake wear

warning sound is heard, have the vehicle serviced.



Continuing to drive with worn-out brake pads could result in costly

brake repair.

Some driving conditions or climates can cause a brake squeal when the

brakes are first applied or lightly applied. This does not mean

something is wrong with the brakes.

Properly torqued wheel nuts are necessary to help prevent brake

pulsation. When tires are rotated, inspect brake pads for wear and

evenly tighten wheel nuts in the


proper sequence to torque

specifications. See Capacities and Specifications 0 413.

Brake pads should be replaced as complete sets.

Brake Pedal Travel

See your dealer if the brake pedal does not return to normal height, or if

there is a rapid increase in pedal

travel. This could be a sign that brake service may be required.

Replacing Brake System Parts

Always replace brake system parts

with new, approved replacement parts. If this is not done, the brakes may not work properly. The braking

performance expected can change in many other ways if the wrong

replacement brake parts are installed or if parts are improperly installed.
