After start of the engine and before inclusion of transfers press a brake. Otherwise the car will "gnash". You do not press at the same time the accelerator pedal and a brake. After inclusion of situation "D" the transmission works in economy mode. It is practically possible to go by situation "D" always.
By soft pressing of the accelerator pedal there is an early switching to transfers to economical fuel consumption. Manual switching is necessary only in exceptional cases. "З", "2" and "1" - only if you want to avoid switching to higher transfer or when braking by the engine.
As soon as the road situation allows, to switch to "D".
Provisions of the lever of switching of P, R and N
Step of D
D = long situation for normal conditions of driving on transfers with 1 on 4.
After start of the engine and inclusion the "D" transmission always works in the mode of economic driving.
3 = situation for driving on 1, 2 - 3 transfers.
2 = situation for driving on 1 - 2 transfers, for example, on the mountain serpentine, at the same time a box does not switch to the 3rd and 4th transfers.
1 = situation for the maximum brake effort, for example, on abrupt descents, a box does not switch to transfers higher than 1.
The driving modes with electronic control
The help at start-off from the place
The help in start-off from the place is turned off:
• At a speed over 80 km/h.
Besides, shutdown is possible at:
• Repeated pressing of a key
• Manual inclusion "Р", "З", "2" or "1".
• Pressing of a pedal of an accelerator during more than 2 sec.
• Switching off of ignition.
Kickdown - sharp pressing against the stop an accelerator pedal
For use of brake functions of the engine during descent it is timely to include "3", "2" or if that is demanded by a situation, "1" step.
Especially effectively brake action at a step "1". If "1" it is included at too high speed, the box will continue to work at the 2nd transfer until when, for example, due to braking, the point of transition to the 1st transfer is reached.
The included step at a stop with the working engine can be kept.
At long parking, for example, in a stopper or on moving, switch off the engine.
Before an exit from the car, at first to turn on the parking brake, then switch on "Р" and take the ignition key.
The way described above to apply only in exceptional cases.
The transmission automatically does not switch.
1 = 1st transfer
2 = 3rd transfer
3 = 3rd transfer
D = 4th transfer
N = neutral (idling)
R = backing
Р = parking
If after start of the engine
