Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) (if so equipped)

● Do not depress the accelerator pedal

● Do not depress the accelerator pedal while shifting from P (Park) or N (Neutral) to R (Reverse), D (Drive) or L (Low).

Always depress the brake pedal until shifting is completed. Failure to do so could cause you to lose control and have an accident.

● Cold engine idle speed is high, so use caution when shifting into a forward or reverse gear before the engine has warmed up.

● Do not downshift abruptly on slippery roads. This may cause a loss of control.

● Never shift to P (Park) or R (Reverse) while the vehicle is moving. This could cause an accident.

● Except in an emergency, do not shift to the N (Neutral) position while driving.

Doing so can cause a loss of engine braking which may result in a collision, serious personal injury or death. In addition, coasting with the transmission in the N (Neutral) position may cause serious damage to the transmission.

When stopping the vehicle on an uphill

When stopping the vehicle on an uphill grade, do not hold the vehicle by depressing the accelerator pedal. The foot brake should be used for this purpose.

The CVT in your vehicle is electronically controlled to produce maximum power and smooth operation.

The recommended operating procedures for this transmission are shown on the following pages.

Follow these procedures for maximum vehicle performance and driving enjoyment.

NOTE.

Engine power may be automatically reduced to protect the CVT if the engine speed increases quickly when driving on slippery roads or while being tested on some dynamometers.
