Driving your vehicle
Good driving practices
• Always use the parking brake and
shift into P (Park) when parking the
vehicle. Do not depend on placing
the transaxle in P (Park) to keep
the vehicle from moving.
Never move the shift lever from P
(Park) or N (Neutral) to any other
position with the accelerator pedal
Always buckle-up! In a colli-

significantly more likely to be
seriously injured or killed than
a properly belted occupant.
Avoid high speeds when cor-

Do not make quick steering

The risk of rollover is greatly
increased if you lose control
of your vehicle at highway

In the event your vehicle
leaves the roadway, do not
steer sharply. Instead, slow
down before pulling back into
the travel lanes.
Exercise extreme caution when
driving on a slippery surface. Be
especially careful when braking,
accelerating or shifting gears. On a
slippery surface, an abrupt change
in vehicle speed can cause the
drive wheels to lose traction and
the vehicle to go out of control.

when the vehicle is in motion.
Be sure the vehicle is completely
stopped before you attempt to shift
into R (Reverse) or D (Drive).
Never take the vehicle out of gear
and coast down a hill. This may be
extremely hazardous. Always leave
the vehicle in gear when moving.
Do not "ride" the brakes. This can
cause them to overheat and mal-
function. Instead, when you are
driving down a long hill, slow down,
move the shift lever to sports mode
and shift to a lower gear.
Optimum vehicle performance and
economy is obtained by smoothly
depressing and releasing the
