Warning display

The brake warning lamp illuminates to indicate a fault in the
braking system. A warning is also displayed on the multi-infor-
mation display. Refer to "Brake warning lamp" and "Brake
warning display" on page 3-51, 3-53.
When brakes are wet
Check the brake system while driving at a low speed immedi-
ately after starting, especially when the brakes are wet, to con-
firm they work normally.
A film of water can be formed on the brake discs and prevent
normal braking after driving in heavy rain or through large
puddles, or after the vehicle is washed. If this occurs, dry the
brakes out by driving slowly while lightly depressing the brake
pedal.
When driving downhill
It is important to take advantage of the engine braking by shift-
ing to a lower shift position while driving on steep downhill
roads in order to prevent the brakes from overheating.
WARNING
!
● Do not leave any objects near the brake pedal or let
a floor mat slide under it; doing so could prevent the
full pedal stroke that would be necessary in an emer-
gency. Make sure that the pedal can be operated
freely at all times. Make sure the floor mat is
securely held in place.

Brake pad

● Avoid hard braking situations.
New brakes need to be broken-in by moderate use for the
first 200 km (125 miles).
● The disc brakes are provided with a warning device which
emits a shrieking metallic sound while braking if the
brake pads have reached their limit. If you hear this sound,
have the brake pads replaced immediately.
WARNING
!
● Driving with worn brake pads will make it harder to
stop, and can cause an accident.
