Driving your vehicle
Good braking practices
•  Driving through  water may  get the
brakes wet. They  can also  get wet
when  the  vehicle  is  washed. Wet
brakes  can   be  dangerous!   Your
vehicle will not stop as quickly if the
brakes  are  wet.  Wet  brakes  may
cause the vehicle to pull to one side.
To dry the brakes,  apply the brakes
lightly until the braking action returns
to normal,  taking  care to  keep the
vehicle under  control at all times.  If
the braking action does not return to
normal, stop as soon as it is safe to
do   so   and   call   an   authorized
HYUNDAI dealer for assistance.
The  HAC does  not operate  when
the transaxle shift lever is in  the P
(Park) or N (Neutral) position.
The  HAC  activates  even  though
the ESC is off  but it does not acti-
vate  when the  ESC has  malfunc-
Whenever  you  leave  or  park
your  vehicle,  always   set  the
parking brake as  far as possi-
ble and  fully engage the  vehi-
cle's transaxle into the P (Park)
position. If the parking brake is
not fully  engaged, the  vehicle
may  move   inadvertently  and
injure yourself and others.
All   vehicles   should   always
have  the  parking  brake  fully
engaged    when   parking    to
avoid  inadvertent   movement
of the vehicle which can injure
occupants or pedestrians.
Don't  coast   down  hills   with  the
vehicle out of gear.This is extreme-
ly  hazardous. Keep  the vehicle  in
gear at all times, use the brakes to
slow  down,  then  shift  to  a  lower
gear  so  that  engine   braking  will
help you maintain a safe speed.
Don't    "ride"   the    brake   pedal.
Resting  your   foot  on   the  brake
pedal while driving can be  danger-
ous  because  it  can  result  in  the
brakes overheating and losing their
effectiveness. It also increases  the
wear of the brake components.
After  being  parked,  check  to   be
sure   the   parking   brake   is   not
engaged   and   that   the   parking
brake  indicator light  is  out  before
driving away.
