P (Park)

This position is for parking the vehicle and starting the engine.

In this position, the transmission is mechanically locked to prevent the vehicle from rolling freely.

When you park the vehicle, first apply the parking brake, then shift into the P position. Do not hold the vehicle with only the transmission.

To shift the select lever from the P to any other position, you should depress the brake pedal fully then move the select lever. This prevents the vehicle from lurching when it is started.

NOTE

To protect the engine while the P position is selected, the engine is controlled such that the engine speed may not become too high even if the accelerator pedal is depressed hard.
