• To demist effectively, direct the air flow from the side ventilators towards the door windows.

• On vehicles with air conditioning, do not set the temperature control dial to the max. cool position. Cool air will blow against the window glasses and prevent demisting.

• For vehicles with the Auto Stop & Go (AS&G) system, if the mode selection dial is set to the demister position shown in the illustration, the Auto Stop & Go (AS&G) system will not operate and the engine will not stop automatically even if the vehicle is stopped.

This is to ensure that good visibility is maintained.
