n Replacing tires
158
Make sure that all tires are of the same size, brand, tread pattern and total load capacity. In addition, make sure that the tires are inflated to the appropriate tire pressure level.
158
n Handling of tires and suspension
158
Take notice of the following information about storage precautions, cargo capacity and load.
159
l Stow cargo and luggage in the trunk whenever possible.
159
l Be sure all items are secured in place.
159
l Be careful to keep the vehicle level. Placing the weight as far forward as possible helps maintain vehicle balance.
159
l For better fuel economy, do not carry unnecessary weight.
159
Cargo capacity depends on the total weight of the occupants.
159
(1) Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.” on your vehicle’s placard.
159
(2) Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be riding in your vehicle.
159
(3) Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX kg or XXX lbs.
159
(4) The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity.
159
For example, if the “XXX” amount equals 1400 lbs. and there will be five 150 lb passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 650 lbs. (1400 - 750 (5 ¥ 150) = 650 lbs.)
159
Except Canada: Toyota does not recommend towing a trailer with your vehicle. Your vehicle is not designed for trailer towing.
160
In this condition, if 3 more passengers with the combined weight of 388 lb. (176 kg) get on, the available cargo and luggage load will be reduced as follows:
160
l Receptacles containing gasoline
161
l Aerosol cans
161
. Driver’s feet
161
. Front passenger or rear seats (when stacking items)
161
. Package tray
161
. Instrument panel
161
. Dashboard
161
. Auxiliary box or tray that has no lid
161
l Secure all items in the occupant compartment, as they may shift and injure someone during emergency braking, sudden swerving or an accident.
161
l Do not exceed the maximum axle weight rating or the total vehicle weight rating.
161
l Even if the total load of occupant’s weight and the cargo load is less than the total load capacity, do not apply the load unevenly. Improper loading may cause deterioration of steering or braking control which may cause death or serious injury.
161
Vehicle load limits include total load capacity, seating capacity, towing capacity and cargo capacity.
162
n Total load capacity: 845 lb. (383 kg)
162
Total load capacity means the combined weight of occupants, cargo and luggage.
162
n Seating capacity: 5 occupants (Front 2, Rear 3)
162
Seating capacity means the maximum number of occupants whose estimated average weight is 150 lb. (68 kg) per person.
162
Even if the number of occupants are within the seating capacity, do not exceed the total load capacity.
162
n Towing capacity (Canada): 700 lb. (318 kg)
162
Towing capacity means the maximum gross trailer weight (trailer weight plus its cargo weight) that your vehicle is able to tow.
162
n Towing capacity (except Canada):
162
Toyota does not recommend towing a trailer with your vehicle.

n Trailer tongue load
168
The trailer cargo load should be distributed so that the tongue load is 9 to 11% of the total trailer weight, not exceeding the maximum 70 lb. (32 kg) (Tongue load / Total trailer weight ¥ 100 = 9 to 11%)
168
l Ensure that your vehicle’s tires are properly inflated. (ÆP. 347)
169
l Trailer tires should be inflated according to the trailer manufacturer’s recommendation.
169
l All trailer lights work to be legal.
169
l Confirm all lights work each time you connect them.
169
l The trailer ball is set up at the proper height for the coupler on the trailer.
169
l Check that your vehicle remains level when a loaded or unloaded trailer is hitched. Do not drive if the vehicle is not level, and check for improper tongue load, overloading, worn suspension, or other possible causes.
169
l Make sure the trailer cargo is securely loaded.
169
l Check that your rear view mirrors conform to any federal, state/provincial or local regulations. If they do not, install rear view mirrors appropriate for towing purposes.
169
l If you tow a trailer, your vehicle will require more frequent maintenance due to the additional load. (See “Scheduled Maintenance Guide” or “Owner’s Manual Supplement”.)
169
l The total trailer weight (trailer weight plus the weight of cargo) must not exceed 700 lb. (318 kg)
170
l Do not exceed the trailer hitch assembly weight, gross vehicle weight, gross axle weight and trailer tongue load capacities.
170
l Do not tow the vehicle with the compact spare tire installed.
170
l If you wish to install a trailer hitch, your Toyota dealer should be consulted.
170
l Use only a hitch that conforms to the total trailer weight requirement.
170
l Follow the directions supplied by the hitch manufacturer.
170
l Lubricate the hitch ball with a light coat of grease.
170
l Never tap into your vehicle’s hydraulic system, as this will lower the vehicle’s braking effectiveness.
170
l Never tow a trailer without using a safety chain securely attached to both the trailer and the vehicle. If damage occurs to the coupling unit or hitch ball, there is danger of the trailer wandering into another lane.
170
n Do not directly splice trailer lights
171
l Before starting out, check the trailer’s light and the vehicle-trailer connections. Recheck after driving a short distance.
171
l Practice turning, stopping and reversing with the trailer attached in an area away from traffic until you become accustomed to the feel of the vehicle.
171
l Reversing with a trailer attached is difficult and requires practice. Grip the bottom of the steering wheel and move your hand...
172
l As stopping distance is increased when towing a trailer, vehicle-to- vehicle distance should be increased. For each 10 mph (16 km/h) of speed, allow at least one vehicle and trailer length.
172
l Avoid sudden braking as you may skid, resulting in jackknifing and loss of control. This is especially true on wet or slippery surfaces.
172
l Avoid jerky starts or sudden acceleration. Vehicles with a manual transmission: Prevent excessive clutch slippage by keeping engine rpm low and not racing the engine. Always start out in first gear.
172
l Avoid jerky steering and sharp turns, and slow down before making a turn.
172
l Note that when making a turn, the trailer wheels will be closer than the vehicle wheels to the inside of the turn. Compensate by making a larger than normal turning radius.
172
l Crosswinds and rough roads will adversely affect handling of your vehicle and trailer, causing sway. Periodically check the re...
172
l Take care when passing other vehicles. Passing requires considerable distance. After passing a vehicle, do not forget the length of your trailer, and be sure you have plenty of room before changing lanes.
173
l In order to maintain engine braking efficiency, do not use the transmission in D (automatic transmission) or 5 (manual transmission).
173
Apply the brakes and keep them applied.
173
Have someone place wheel blocks under both the vehicle and trailer wheels.
173
When the wheel blocks are in place, release the brakes slowly until the blocks absorb the load.
173
Apply the parking brake firmly.
173
With the transmission in P (automatic transmission) or the clutch pedal (manual transmission) depressed, start the engine. On vehicles with an automatic transmission, be sure to keep the brake pedal pressed.
174
Shift into a forward gear. If reversing, shift into R.
174
l Do not exceed 45 mph (72 km/h) or posted towing speed limit, whichever is lower. As instability (swaying) of the towing vehicle-trailer combination increases as speed increases, exceeding 45 mph (72 km/h) may cause loss of control.
174
