As the installation of a mobile two- way radio system in your vehicle could affect electronic systems such as multiport fuel injection system, cruise control system, anti- lock brake system, SRS airbag system and seat belt pretensioner system, be sure to check with your Toyota dealer for precautionary measures or special instructions regarding installation.

On- pavement and off- road

driving tips

(4WD models and Pre Runner)

This vehicle will handle and maneuver differently from an ordinary passenger car because it is designed for off- road use also. It has a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles. In addition, this ve- hicle has a higher ground clearance and center of gravi- ty than that of an ordinary passenger car. This vehicle design feature causes this type of vehicle to be more likely to rollover. Failure to operate this vehicle correctly may result in loss of control, accidents or vehicle rol- lover causing death or serious injury. Be sure to read “Off- road vehicle precautions” in Section 2 and “Off- road driving precautions” in Section 3.
