To park the vehicle, fully engage the parking brake, and then move the gearshift lever to 1st or “R” (Reverse) position.

Parking on a hill

To prevent the vehicle from rolling, follow these procedures:

Parking on a downhill

Turn the front wheels toward the kerb and move the vehicle forward until the kerb side wheel gently touches the kerb.

Set the parking brake and place the gearshift lever into the “R” (Reverse) position.

If necessary, apply chocks to wheels.

Parking on an uphill

Turn the front wheels away from the kerb and move the vehicle back until the kerb side wheel gently touches the kerb.

Set the parking brake and place the gearshift lever into the 1st position.

If necessary, apply chocks to wheels.

Parking with the engine running

Never leave the engine running while you take a short sleep/rest. Also, never leave the engine running in a closed or poorly ventilated place. Leaving the engine running risks injury or death from accidentally moving the gearshift lever or the accumulation of toxic exhaust fumes on the passenger compartment.

Where you park

WARNING:

● Do not park your vehicle in areas where combustible materials such as dry grass or leaves can come in contact with a hot exhaust, since a fire could occur.

When leaving the vehicle

Always carry the key and lock all doors and the split tailgate when leaving the vehicle unattended.

Always try to park your vehicle in a well lit area.
