CAUTION

(1) Do not move the gearshift lever into reverse while the vehicle is moving forward; doing so will damage the transmission.
(2) Do not rest your foot on the clutch pedal while driving as this will cause premature clutch wear or damage.

NOTE

(1) If it is hard to shift into 1st, depress the clutch pedal again; the shift will then be easier to make.

(2) To shift into reverse from 5th gear, move the gearshift lever to the “N” position (Neutral) and then shift it into reverse. (Type 2)
