Operating conditions

After stopping the hybrid system, the vehicle will remain lowered for a maximum of
60 seconds.

Height selector switch (driver's side instrument panel) While the hybrid system is operating, any vehicle height mode can be selected.

When changing vehicle height modes

Before operating the height selector switch to raise/lower the vehicle height,
ensure that there are no objects in the surrounding area that could damage the vehicle.

When N mode is selected

During high speed driving, the vehicle height will automatically change to that of
LO mode.

When HI mode is selected

The vehicle height will change to that of N mode when vehicle speed reaches 31
mph (50 km/h) or when vehicle speed has exceeded 19 mph (30 km/h) for approximately 10 seconds. Even if vehicle speed is then reduced to under 19 mph (30 km/h), height will not return to HI mode.

When LO mode is selected

The vehicle height will change to that of N mode when the hybrid system is restarted.

When luggage mode is selected

If the vehicle begins to move while still in luggage mode, the vehicle will automatically
change to N mode once speed exceeds 5 mph (8 km/h). Even if vehicle speed is reduced below 5 mph (8 km/h), the vehicle height will not automatically return to luggage mode.

Operating sound of the air suspension

When the vehicle height is lowered, such as when entering and loading the vehicle,
or when the height selector switch is operated, the sound of the compressor operating
or the mode changing may be heard. This does not indicate a malfunction.

Automatic leveling function

Regardless of the number of occupants and the luggage load, vehicle height in any
mode is always adjusted to a fixed height by the automatic leveling function.

Vehicle height mode change time

If the height control is operated continuously to lower the vehicle, the suspension
air tank may become full, causing operation of the vehicle height lowering control to become slow.

To protect the compressor, the system will only raise the vehicle for a total of
100 consecutive seconds. If it takes longer than this to reach the selected height, operation may be suspended shortly and then restart. However, it may not be possible to change the vehicle's height mode at this time.

The electronically modulated air suspension will not operate when

The vehicle height control may not be able to change modes when the vehicle runs
over a high curb or other rugged surfaces where the suspension is stretched.

CAUTION:
The electronically modulated air suspension must be disabled when The electronically modulated air suspension must be disabled in the following situations
as vehicle height may change, resulting in accidental damage: Any of the wheels is stuck in a ditch.

It is necessary to jack up the vehicle.

It is necessary to tow the vehicle with part of it lifted.

When connecting/disconnecting a trailer For safety, stop the hybrid system if necessary.

NOTICE:
HI mode
HI mode should be used for off-road driving. As the vehicle's center of gravity is
higher in this setting, the vehicle may become unstable if an abrupt turn is made.

Do not select HI mode when loading cargo on the roof luggage carrier. This may result in a loss of control or vehicle rollover.

Do not select LO mode when driving on bumpy roads.

If the underbody of the vehicle touches a rugged road surface, the vehicle may be
damaged. Also be careful when driving while the vehicle is automatically returning
from luggage or LO mode to N mode.

Automatic return to N mode In the following situations, the height of the vehicle will automatically increase. Be
careful in any place where overhead space is limited.

The vehicle begins to move while still in luggage mode.

The hybrid system is restarted while the vehicle is in LO mode.

Vehicle height while parked If the temperature changes or the vehicle is parked for a long time, the vehicle height may decrease.
