Driving on snowy and icy roads

To prevent skidding and slipping, avoid sudden braking, abrupt acceleration, highspeed driving, and sharp turning when driving on snowy or icy roads.

Always maintain ample distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you to avoid the need for sudden braking.

To supplement the foot brake, use the engine brake effectively to control the vehicle speed. (Shift into a lower gear when necessary.) Avoid shifting down abruptly. Such behavior can cause the wheels to lock, possibly leading to loss of vehicle control.

An anti-lock brake system (ABS) enhances your vehicles braking performance on snowy and icy roads. For information on braking on slippery surfaces, refer to ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) and Vehicle Dynamics Control system.

Do not use the cruise control on slippery roads such as snowy or icy roads. This may cause loss of vehicle control.

Avoid prolonged continuous driving in snowstorms. Snow will enter the engines intake system and may hinder the airflow, which could result in engine shutdown or even breakdown.
