Driving tips

Х 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.

Х Always apply the foot or parking brake when the vehicle is stopped in the УDФ or УRФ position.

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

Х Do not keep the vehicle in a stationary position on an uphill grade by using the УDФ position. Use the brake instead.

Х 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.
