Parking in cold weather

Do not use the parking brake when parking for long periods in cold weather since it could freeze in that position.

Instead, observe the following.

1. Place the shift lever in the У1Ф or УRФ position for manual transmission models, or place the select lever in the УPФ position for automatic transmission models.

2. Use tire stops under the tires to prevent the vehicle from moving.

When the vehicle is parked in snow or when it snows, raise the wiper blades off the glass to prevent damage to them.

When the vehicle has been left parked after use on roads heavily covered with snow, or has been left parked during a snowstorm, icing may develop on the brake system, which could cause poor braking action. Check for snow or ice buildup on the suspension, disc brakes and brake hoses underneath the vehicle.

If there is caked snow or ice, remove it, being careful not to damage the disc brakes and brake hoses and ABS harness.

Snow can trap dangerous exhaust

Snow can trap dangerous exhaust gases under your vehicle. Keep snow clear of the exhaust pipe and from around your vehicle if you park the vehicle in snow with the engine running.
