Driving tips

On a road surface where there is a risk of wheelspin (for example, a snow- or gravel-covered road), you can pull away from a standstill safely and easily by first selecting the 2nd gear of the manual mode.

Always apply the foot or parking brake when the vehicle is stopped in the “D” or “R” position.

Always set the parking brake when parking your vehicle. Do not hold the vehicle with only the transmission.

Do not keep the vehicle in a stationary position on an uphill grade by using the “D” position. Use the brake instead.

The engine may, on rare occasions, knock when the vehicle rapidly accelerates or rapidly pulls away from a standstill.

This phenomenon does not indicate a problem.

A slight reduction in output torque may occur before the engine warms up.
