*2: If you drive in dusty conditions, replace the air cleaner element every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).  
*3: If you drive primarily in urban areas that have high concentrations of soot in the air from industry and  
from diesel-powered vehicles, replace the dust and pollen filter every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).  
*4: Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher transmission  
temperatures. This requires transmission fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the  
Maintenance Minder. If you regularly drive your vehicle under these conditions, have the transmission  
fluid changed every 25,000 miles (40,000 km).  
*1: If a message SERVICE does not appear more than 12 months after the display is reset, change the  
engine oil every year.
