Use the emergency brake only in case of an emergency. If the emergency brake is excessively used, the brake parts will wear down faster or the brake may not work sufficiently due to rear wheel brake overheating.

NOTE

While using the emergency brake, the brake system warning light and the indicator light on the parking brake switch illuminate and a chirp sounds. If the foot brake has a malfunction, you can stop the vehicle by pressing the parking brake switch continuously.
