Driving your vehicle
Rocking the vehicle
WARNING - Rollover
If it is necessary to rock the vehicle to
free it from  snow, sand, or  mud, first
turn the steering  wheel right and  left
to  clear the  area  around  your front
wheels.  Then,  shift  back  and  forth
between  R  (Reverse)  and  any  for-
ward gear  in vehicles  equipped with
an automatic  transaxle. Do  not race
the engine, and spin the wheels as lit-
tle as  possible. If  you  are still  stuck
after  a  few  tries,  have   the  vehicle
pulled out  by a  tow vehicle  to avoid
engine   overheating   and   possible
damage to the transaxle.
As   with   other   Sports   Utility
Vehicle (SUV), failure to operate
this vehicle correctly may result
in loss of control, an accident or
vehicle rollover.
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
the   one   that   was    originally
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.
Utility vehicles  have a signifi-
cantly   higher    rollover   rate
than other types of vehicles.
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.
Prolonged  rocking   may  cause
engine  over-heating,   transaxle
damage or failure, and tire dam-
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.
