- Never leave unattended children

- Never leave unattended children or pets in the vehicle. They could accidentally injure themselves or others through inadvertent operation of the vehicle. Also, on hot or sunny days, the temperature in a closed vehicle could quickly become high enough to cause severe or possibly fatal injuries to people.

- Do not park the vehicle over flammable materials such as dry grass, waste paper or rags, as they may burn easily if they come near hot engine or exhaust system parts.

- Be sure to stop the engine if you take a nap in the vehicle. If engine exhaust gas enters the passenger compartment, occupants in the vehicle could die from carbon monoxide (CO) contained in the exhaust gas.

- Always set the parking brake

- Always set the parking brake firmly when parking your vehicle.

Never rely on the transmission alone to hold the vehicle.

- If your vehicle has a front underspoiler and rear underspoiler (if equipped), pay attention to blocks and other obstructions on the ground when parking.

The underspoilers could be damaged by contact with them.
