Things that must not be carried in the luggage compartment

The following things may cause a fire if loaded in the luggage compartment:

  • Receptacles containing gasoline
  • Aerosol cans

Storage precautions

Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may prevent the pedals from being depressed properly, may block the driver’s vision, or may result in items hitting the driver or passengers, possibly causing an accident.

  • Stow cargo and luggage in the luggage compartment whenever possible.
  • Do not stack cargo and luggage in the luggage compartment higher than the seatbacks.
  • Do not place cargo or luggage in or on the following locations.
  • Driver’s feet
  • Front passenger or rear seats (when stacking items)
  • Instrument panel
  • Dashboard
  • Auxiliary box or tray that has no lid
  • Secure all items in the occupant compartment.
  • When you fold down the rear seats, long items should not be placed directly behind the front seats.
  • Never allow anyone to ride in the luggage compartment. It is not designed for passengers. They should ride in their seats with their seat belts properly fastened. Otherwise, they are much more likely to suffer death or serious bodily injury, in the event of sudden braking, sudden swerving or an accident.

Capacity and distribution

  • Do not exceed the maximum axle weight rating or the total vehicle weight rating.
  • 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.

Cross rail adjustment

Make sure the cross rails are locked securely by pushing forward and rearward them.

Failure to do so may cause an unexpected accident.

When loading cargo

To use the roof rails as a roof luggage carrier, you must fit the roof rails with two or more genuine Toyota cross rails or their equivalent.

When you load cargo on the roof luggage carrier, observe the following:

  • Place the cargo so that its weight is distributed evenly between the front and rear axles.
  • If loading long or wide cargo, never exceed the vehicle overall length or width.
  • Before driving, make sure the cargo is securely fastened on the roof luggage carrier.
  • Loading cargo on the roof luggage carrier will make the center of gravity of the vehicle higher. Avoid high speeds, sudden starts, sharp turns, sudden braking or abrupt maneuvers, otherwise it may result in loss of control or vehicle rollover due to failure to operate this vehicle correctly and result in death or serious injury.
  • If driving for a long distance, on rough roads, or at high speeds, stop the vehicle now and then during the trip to make sure the cargo remains in its place.
  • Do not exceed 150 lb. (68 kg) cargo weight on the roof luggage carrier.
