Example of the oil level graphic in the center display

The oil level can be viewed using the electronic oil level gauge in the center display once the vehicle has been started. The oil level should be checked regularly.

  1. Open the Car Status app from App view in the center display.
  2. Tap Status to display the oil level.

NOTE

The system cannot directly detect changes when the oil is filled or drained. The vehicle must have been driven approximately 30 km (20 miles) and have been stationary 5 minutes on a level surface and with the engine off before the correct oil level will be displayed.

NOTE

If the conditions for measuring oil level are not properly fulfilled (time after engine shutdown, vehicle inclination, ambient temperature, etc.) the message No value available will be shown in the center display. This does not mean that anything is wrong in the vehicle systems.
