Driving your vehicle
Reducing the risk of a rollover
WARNING - Rollover
This multi-purpose passenger  vehicle
is defined  as a  Sports Utility  Vehicle
(SUV).  SUV’s   have  higher  ground
clearance  and  a   narrower  track  to
make them capable of performing in a
wide  variety of  off-road  applications.
Specific  design   characteristics  give
them a  higher  center of  gravity than
ordinary vehicles. An advantage of the
higher  ground  clearance  is a  better
view of the  road, which allows you  to
anticipate  problems.  They   are  not
designed  for  cornering at  the  same
speeds  as   conventional  passenger
vehicles,  any   more  than  low-slung
sports  cars are  designed to  perform
satisfactorily  in   off-road  conditions.
Due to this risk, driver and passengers
are strongly  recommended to  buckle
their seat belts. In a rollover crash, an
unbelted person  is more  likely to  die
than  a  person  wearing  a  seat belt.
There are steps that a driver can make
to reduce the risk of a rollover. If at all
possible, avoid  sharp turns or  abrupt
maneuvers, do not load your roof rack
with  heavy cargo,  and  never  modify
your vehicle in any way.
As   with   other   Sports   Utility
Vehicle (SUV), failure to operate
this vehicle correctly may result
in loss of control, an accident or
vehicle rollover.
•  Utility vehicles have  a signifi-
cantly   higher    rollover   rate
than other types of vehicles.
Your  vehicle  is  equipped  with
tires  designed  to  provide  safe
ride and handling capability. Do
not use  a  size and  type of  tire
and wheel that  is different from
installed on your  vehicle. It can
affect  the  safety  and  perform-
ance   of   your  vehicle,   which
could lead to steering  failure or
rollover    and   serious    injury.
When   replacing  the   tires,  be
sure to  equip all four  tires with
the tire  and wheel  of the  same
size,   type,   tread,   brand   and
load-carrying   capacity.  If   you
nevertheless   decide  to   equip
your vehicle with any  tire/wheel
combination not  recommended
by  HYUNDAI  for off  road  driv-
ing,  you should  not  use  these
tires for highway driving.
Specific   design  characteris-
tics (higher ground clearance,
narrower track,  etc.) give  this
vehicle   a   higher   center   of
gravity than ordinary vehicles.
A SUV is not designed for cor-
nering at the  same speeds as
conventional vehicles.
Avoid  sharp  turns  or  abrupt
•  In a rollover  crash, an unbelt-
ed   person    is   significantly
more likely  to die  than a  per-
son wearing a seat belt.  Make
sure everyone in the vehicle is
properly buckled up.
