    Owner’s Manual

  • Page 2

    Foreword
    Your INFINITI represents a new way of
    thinking about vehicle design. It integrates
    advanced engineering and superior craftsmanship with a simple, refined aesthetic
    sensitivity associated with traditional Japanese culture.
    The result is a different notion of luxury
    and beauty. The car itself is important, but
    so is the sense of harmony that the vehicle
    evokes in its driver, and the sense of
    satisfaction you feel with the INFINITI —
    from the way it looks and drives to the high
    level of retailer service.
    To ensure that you enjoy your INFINITI to
    the fullest, we encourage you to read this
    Owner’s Manual immediately. It explains
    all of the features, controls and performance characteristics of your INFINITI; it
    also provides important instructions and
    safety information.
    A separate Warranty Information Booklet
    is included in your Owner’s literature
    portfolio. The INFINITI Service and Maintenance Guide explains details about
    maintaining and servicing your vehicle.
    Always carry it with you when you take
    your vehicle to an INFINITI retailer. The
    Warranty Information Booklet contents
    provide complete information about all

    warranties covering this vehicle, the requirements to keep the warranties in effect
    as well as the INFINITI Roadside Assistance program.
    Additionally, a separate Customer Care
    and Lemon Law Information Booklet will
    explain how to resolve any concerns you
    may have with your vehicle, as well as
    clarify your rights under your state’s
    lemon law.
    In addition to factory installed options,
    your vehicle may also be equipped with
    additional accessories installed by INFINITI
    or by your INFINITI retailer prior to delivery.
    It is important that you familiarize yourself
    with all disclosures, warnings, cautions
    and instructions concerning proper use of
    such accessories prior to operating the
    vehicle and/or accessory. See an INFINITI
    retailer for details concerning the particular accessories with which your vehicle is
    equipped.

    READ FIRST — THEN DRIVE SAFELY
    Before driving your vehicle, read your
    Owner’s Manual carefully. This will ensure
    familiarity with controls and maintenance
    requirements, assisting you in the safe
    operation of your vehicle.

    WARNING

    HEAD RESTRAINTS/HEADRESTS

    WARNING
    Head restraint/headrest supplement the
    other vehicle safety systems. They may
    provide additional protection against injury
    in certain rear end collisions. Adjust the
    head restraint/headrest properly, as specified in this section. Check the adjustment
    after someone else uses the seat. Do not
    attach anything to the head restraint/headrest stalks or remove the head restraint/
    headrest. Do not use the seat if the head
    restraint/headrest has been removed. If the
    head restraint/headrest was removed, reinstall and properly adjust the head restraint/headrest before an occupant uses
    the seating position. Failure to follow these
    instructions can reduce the effectiveness of
    the head restraint/headrest. This may increase the risk of serious injury or death in a

    SEAT BELTS
    PRECAUTIONS ON SEAT BELT USAGE
    If you are wearing your seat belt properly
    adjusted, and you are sitting upright and
    well back in your seat with both feet on the
    floor, your chances of being injured or
    killed in an accident and/or the severity of
    injury may be greatly reduced. INFINITI
    strongly encourages you and all of your
    passengers to buckle up every time you
    drive, even if your seating position includes a supplemental air bag.
    Most U.S. states and Canadian provinces
    or territories specify that seat belts be
    worn at all times when a vehicle is being
    driven.

    .

    Do not wear the seat belt inside out or
    twisted. Doing so may reduce its effectiveness.

    Every person who drives or rides in this
    vehicle should use a seat belt at all
    times. Children should be properly restrained in the rear seat and, if appropriate, in a child restraint.

    .

    Do not allow more than one person to
    use the same seat belt.

    .

    Never carry more people in the vehicle
    than there are seat belts.

    .

    The seat belt should be properly adjusted to a snug fit. Failure to do so may
    reduce the effectiveness of the entire
    restraint system and increase the chance
    or severity of injury in an accident.
    Serious injury or death can occur if the
    seat belt is not worn properly.

    .

    If the seat belt warning light glows
    continuously while the ignition is turned
    ON with all doors closed and all seat
    belts fastened, it may indicate a malfunction in the system. Have the system
    checked by an INFINITI retailer.

    .

    .

    Always route the shoulder belt over your
    shoulder and across your chest. Never
    run the belt behind your back, under
    your arm or across your neck. The belt
    should be away from your face and neck,
    but not falling off your shoulder.

    .

    Position the lap belt as low and snug as
    possible AROUND THE HIPS, NOT THE
    WAIST. A lap belt worn too high could
    increase the risk of internal injuries in an
    accident.

    No changes should be made to the seat
    belt system. For example, do not modify
    the seat belt, add material or install
    devices that may change the seat belt
    routing or tension. Doing so may affect
    the operation of the seat belt system.
    Modifying or tampering with the seat
    belt system may result in serious personal injury.

    .

    Be sure the seat belt tongue is securely
    fastened to the proper buckle.

    Once a seat belt pretensioner has
    activated, it cannot be reused and must
    be replaced together with the retractor.

    All seat belt assemblies, including retractors and attaching hardware, should
    be inspected after any collision by an
    INFINITI retailer. INFINITI recommends
    that all seat belt assemblies in use
    during a collision be replaced unless
    the collision was minor and the belts
    show no damage and continue to operate properly. Seat belt assemblies not in
    use during a collision should also be
    inspected and replaced if either damage
    or improper operation is noted.
    All child restraints and attaching hardware should be inspected after any
    collision. Always follow the restraint
    manufacturer’s inspection instructions
    and replacement recommendations. The
    child restraints should be replaced if
    they are damaged.

    PREGNANT WOMEN
    INFINITI recommends that pregnant women
    use seat belts. The seat belt should be
    worn snug, and always position the lap
    belt as low as possible around the hips,
    not the waist, and place the shoulder belt
    over your shoulder and across your chest.

    Never run the lap/shoulder belt over your
    abdominal area. Contact your doctor for
    specific recommendations.

    INJURED PERSONS
    INFINITI recommends that injured persons
    use seat belts, depending on the injury.
    Check with your doctor for specific recommendations.

    PRE-CRASH SEAT BELTS WITH COMFORT FUNCTION (front seats) (if so
    equipped)
    The pre-crash seat belt tightens the seat
    belt with a motor to help restrain front seat
    occupants. This helps reduce the risk of
    injury in a collision.
    The motor retracts the seat belt under the
    following emergency conditions:
    . During emergency braking
    . During sudden steering maneuvers
    . Activation of the forward emergency
    braking system. (See “Forward emergency braking system” (P.5-89).)
    The pre-crash seat belt will not be active
    when:
    . the seat belt is not fastened

    Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system

    . the vehicle speed is under 10 MPH (15
    km/h) during emergency braking
    . the vehicle speed is under 19 MPH (30
    km/h) during sudden steering maneuvers.
    The pre-crash seat belt will not be active
    when the brake pedal is not depressed
    except when sudden steering maneuvers
    occur and the forward emergency braking
    system activates.
    The motor also retracts the seat belt when
    the seat belt is fastened or unfastened.
    When the seat belt is fastened, the motor
    tightens the seat belt for a snug fit. When
    the seat belt is unfastened, the motor
    retracts the seat belt. If the seat belt is not
    fully retracted, the motor retracts the seat
    belt when the door is opened.
    Always wear your seat belt correctly and sit
    upright and well back.
    If the motor cannot retract the seat belt
    when the seat belt is fastened or unfastened, it may indicate the pre-crash seat
    belt system has a malfunction. Have your
    INFINITI retailer check and repair the
    system.
    When the seat belt is retracted repeatedly
    in a short period of time, the motor may

    not be able to retract the seat belt. After a
    few minutes, the motor reactivates and

    engage.
    . The retractor is designed to lock
    during a sudden stop or on impact.
    A slow pulling motion permits the
    belt to move, and allows you some
    freedom of movement in the seat.
    . If the seat belt cannot be pulled
    from its fully retracted position,
    firmly pull the belt and release it.

    sure the shoulder belt is routed over
    your shoulder and across your chest.
    The three-point type seat belts have two
    modes of operation:
    . Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR)
    . Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR)
    The Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR)
    mode allows the seat belt to extend and
    retract to allow the driver and passengers
    some freedom of movement in the seat.



  • Page 36

    . Grasp the shoulder belt and pull
    forward quickly. The retractor should
    lock and restrict further belt movement.
    If the retractor does not lock during this
    check or if you have any question about
    seat belt operation, see an INFINITI retailer.

    The ELR locks the seat belt when the
    vehicle slows down rapidly or during
    impacts.
    The Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR)
    mode (child restraint mode) locks the seat
    belt for child restraint installation.
    When the ALR mode is activated the seat
    belt cannot be extended again until the
    seat belt tongue is detached from the
    buckle and fully retracted. The seat belt
    returns to the ELR mode after the seat belt
    fully retracts. For additional information,
    see “Child restraints” (P.1-24).
    The ALR mode should be used only for
    child restraint installation. During normal
    seat belt use by an occupant, the ALR
    mode should not be activated. If it is
    activated, it may cause uncomfortable seat
    belt tension.

    WARNING
    When fastening the seat belts, be certain
    that seatbacks are completely secured in
    the latched position. If they are not completely secured, passengers may be injured
    in an accident or sudden stop.

    learn the best way to transport your child.
    There are three basic types of child
    restraint systems:
    . Rear-facing child restraint
    . Forward-facing child restraint
    . Booster seat
    The proper restraint depends on the child’s
    size. Generally, infants up to about 1 year
    and less than 20 lbs (9 kg) should be
    placed in rear-facing child restraints. Forward-facing child restraints are available
    for children who outgrow rear-facing child

    1-22 Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system

    WARNING

    All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or
    territories require the use of approved
    child restraints for infants and small
    children. See “Child restraints” (P.1-24).
    A child restraint may be secured in the
    vehicle by using either the LATCH (Lower
    Anchor and Tethers for CHildren) system or
    with the vehicle seat belt. See “Child
    restraints” (P.1-24) for more information.



  • Page 42

    INFINITI recommends that all pre-teens
    and children be restrained in the rear seat.
    Studies show that children are safer when
    properly restrained in the rear seat than in
    the front seat.
    This is especially important because your
    vehicle has a supplemental restraint system (Air bag system) for the front passenger. See “Supplemental restraint system”
    (P.1-42).

    INFANTS
    Infants up to at least 1 year old should be
    placed in a rear-facing child restraint.
    INFINITI recommends that infants be placed
    in child restraints that comply with Federal
    Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. You
    should choose a child restraint that fits
    your vehicle and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation and
    use.

    SMALL CHILDREN
    Children that are over 1 year old and weigh
    at least 20 lbs (9 kg) should remain in a
    rear-facing child restraint as long as
    possible up to the height or weight limit
    of the child restraint. Children who outgrow
    the height or weight limit of the rear-facing

    child restraint and are at least 1 year old
    should be secured in a forward-facing child
    restraint with a harness. Refer to the
    manufacturer’s instructions for minimum
    and maximum weight and height recommendations. INFINITI recommends that
    small children be placed in child restraints
    that comply with Federal Motor Vehicle
    Safety Standards or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. You should choose a
    child restraint that fits your vehicle and
    always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation and use.

    LARGER CHILDREN
    Children should remain in a forward-facing
    child restraint with a harness until they
    reach the maximum height or weight limit
    allowed by the child restraint manufacturer.
    Once a child outgrows the height or weight
    limit of the harness-equipped forwardfacing child restraint, INFINITI recommends
    that the child be placed in a commercially
    available booster seat to obtain proper
    seat belt fit. For a seat belt to fit properly,
    the booster seat should raise the child so
    that the shoulder belt is properly positioned across the chest and the top,
    middle portion of the shoulder. The

    shoulder belt should not cross the neck
    or face and should not fall off the shoulder.
    The lap belt should lie snugly across the
    lower hips or upper thighs, not the abdomen.
    A booster seat can only be used in seating
    positions that have a three-point type seat
    belt. The booster seat should fit the vehicle
    seat and have a label certifying that it
    complies with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
    Standards or Canadian Motor Vehicle
    Safety Standards. Once the child has
    grown so the shoulder belt is no longer
    on or near the face and neck, and the lap
    belt can be positioned properly across the
    lower hips or upper thighs, use the seat
    belt without the booster seat.

    WARNING
    Never let a child stand or kneel on any seat
    and do not allow a child in the cargo area.
    The child could be seriously injured or killed
    in a sudden stop or collision.

    Failure to follow the warnings and
    instructions for proper use and installation of child restraints could result in
    serious injury or death of a child or other
    passengers in a sudden stop or collision:
    — The child restraint must be used and
    installed properly. Always follow all
    of the child restraint manufacturer’s
    instructions for installation and use.
    — Infants and children should never be
    held on anyone’s lap. Even the
    strongest adult cannot resist the
    forces of a collision.
    — Do not put a seat belt around both a
    child and another passenger.

    SSS0100

    — INFINITI recommends that all child
    restraints be installed in the rear
    seat. Studies show that children are
    safer when properly restrained in the
    rear seat than in the front seat. If you
    must install a forward-facing child
    restraint in the front seat, see “For-

    1-24 Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system

    ward-facing child restraint installation using the seat belts” (P.1-35).
    — Even with the INFINITI Advanced Air
    Bag System, never install a rearfacing child restraint in the front
    seat. An inflating air bag could
    seriously injure or kill a child. A
    rear-facing child restraint must only
    be used in the rear seat.
    — Be sure to purchase a child restraint
    that will fit the child and vehicle.
    Some child restraints may not fit
    properly in your vehicle.
    — Child restraint anchor points are
    designed to withstand loads from
    child restraints that are properly
    fitted.
    — Never use the anchor points for
    adult seat belts or harnesses.
    — A child restraint with a top tether
    strap should not be used in the front
    passenger seat.
    — Keep seatbacks as upright as possible after fitting the child restraint.
    — Infants and children should always
    be placed in an appropriate child
    restraint while in the vehicle.

    .

    When the child restraint is not in use,
    keep it secured with the LATCH system
    or a seat belt. In a sudden stop or
    collision, loose objects can injure occupants or damage the vehicle.

    CAUTION
    A child restraint in a closed vehicle can
    become very hot. Check the seating surface
    and buckles before placing a child in the
    child restraint.
    This vehicle is equipped with a universal
    child restraint anchor system, referred to
    as the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers
    for CHildren) system. Some child restraints
    include rigid or webbing-mounted attachments that can be connected to these
    anchors.
    For details, see “Lower Anchors and
    Tethers for CHildren System (LATCH)” (P.126).
    If you do not have a LATCH compatible
    child restraint, the vehicle seat belts can
    be used.
    Several manufacturers offer child restraints

    for infants and small children of various
    sizes. When selecting any child restraint,
    keep the following points in mind:
    . Choose only a restraint with a label
    certifying that it complies with Federal
    Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 or
    Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.
    . Check the child restraint in your vehicle
    to be sure it is compatible with the
    vehicle’s seat and seat belt system.
    . If the child restraint is compatible with
    your vehicle, place your child in the
    child restraint and check the various
    adjustments to be sure the child
    restraint is compatible with your child.
    Choose a child restraint that is designed for your child’s height and
    weight. Always follow all recommended
    procedures.
    All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or
    territories require that infants and small
    children be restrained in an approved child
    restraint at all times while the vehicle is
    being operated. Canadian law requires the
    top tether strap on forward-facing child
    restraints be secured to the designated
    anchor point on the vehicle.

    restraint fit. If the head restraint is
    removed, store it in a secure place. Be
    sure to reinstall the head restraint
    when the child restraint is removed.
    See “Head restraints/headrests” (P.1-8)
    for head restraint adjustment information.
    If the seating position does not have an
    adjustable head restraint and it is
    interfering with the proper child restraint fit, try another seating position
    or a different child restraint.

    6. After attaching the child restraint, test
    it before you place the child in it. Push
    it from side to side while holding the
    child restraint near the LATCH attachment path. The child restraint should
    not move more than 1 inch (25 mm),
    from side to side. Try to tug it forward
    and check to see if the LATCH attachment holds the restraint in place. If the
    restraint is not secure, tighten the
    LATCH attachment as necessary, or
    put the restraint in another seat and
    test it again. You may need to try a
    different child restraint. Not all child
    restraints fit in all types of vehicles.

    WARNING
    .

    .

    The three-point seat belt with Automatic
    Locking Retractor (ALR) must be used
    when installing a child restraint. Failure
    to use the ALR mode will result in the
    child restraint not being properly secured. The restraint could tip over or be
    loose and cause injury to a child in a
    sudden stop or collision. Also, it can
    change the operation of the front passenger air bag. See “Front passenger air
    bag and status light” (P.1-49).
    When installing a child restraint system
    in the rear center position, both the
    center seat belt connector tongue and
    buckle tongue must be secured (for
    models with rear seat folding). See
    “Rear center seat belt (models with rear

    step 1
    Refer to all Warnings and Cautions in the
    “Child safety” and “Child restraints” sections before installing a child restraint.
    Follow these steps to install a forwardfacing child restraint using the vehicle seat
    belt in the rear seats or in the front
    passenger seat:
    1. If you must install a child restraint in
    the front seat, it should be placed in a
    forward-facing direction only. Move the
    seat to the rearmost position. Child
    restraints for infants must be used in
    the rear-facing direction and, therefore,
    must not be used in the front seat.

    2. Position the child restraint on the seat.
    Always follow the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
    The back of the child restraint should
    be secured against the vehicle seatback.
    If necessary, adjust or remove the head
    restraint or headrest to obtain the
    correct child restraint fit. If the head
    restraint or headrest is removed, store
    it in a secure place. Be sure to reinstall
    the head restraint or headrest when
    the child restraint is removed. See
    “Head restraints/headrests” (P.1-8) for
    head restraint or headrest adjustment,
    removal and installation information.
    If the seating position does not have an
    adjustable head restraint or headrest
    and it is interfering with the proper
    child restraint fit, try another seating
    position or a different child restraint.

    3. Route the seat belt tongue through the
    child restraint and insert it into the
    buckle until you hear and feel the latch
    engage. Be sure to follow the child
    restraint manufacturer’s instructions
    for belt routing.
    If the child restraint is equipped with a
    top tether strap, route the top tether
    strap and secure the tether strap to the
    tether anchor point (rear seat installation only). See “Installing top tether
    strap” (P.1-38). Do not install child
    restraints that require the use of a top
    tether strap in seating positions that do
    not have a top tether anchor.
