N (Neutral)

This position is for restarting a stalled engine.

In this position the wheels and transmission are not locked. In this position, the transmission is neutral; the vehicle will roll freely, even on the slightest incline unless the parking brake or foot brake is applied. Avoid coasting with the transmission neutral.

During coasting, there is no engine braking effect.

NOTE

● To protect the engine while the N position is selected, the engine is controlled such that the engine speed may not become too high even if the accelerator pedal is depressed hard.

● If the select lever is in the N position when you stop the engine for parking, you may not subsequently be able to move it to the R and P positions. If this happens, turn the ignition switch to the ON position. You will then be able to move the select lever to the P position.

WARNING

Do not drive the vehicle with the select lever in the N (neutral) position. Engine braking has no effect in this condition and the risk of an accident is consequently increased.
