Parking on a slope

Fully engage the parking brake, and then move the gearshift lever to 1st (on an uphill) or reverse (on a downhill) position on manual transmission vehicle. On automatic transmission vehicle, move the selector lever to “P” position. When parking on a hill, apply chocks to wheels for greater safety.

Parking with the engine running

Do not keep the engine running in a closed or poorly ventilated place. Carbon monoxide gas is odorless and extremely poisonous and dangerous.

Where you park

Do not park in a place where there are inflammable objects such as dry grass, leaves, etc... because the exhaust system with catalyst produces very high temperatures. This may cause a fire.

When leaving the vehicle

Always remove the key from the ignition switch and lock all doors when leaving the vehicle unattended.

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