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 apply 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 malfunction.

● A slight reduction in output torque may occur in the models with a 2.5 L turbo or 3.6 L engine before the engine warms up.
