Overheating in the engine and drive system
Under special conditions, for example hard driving in hilly terrain and hot climate, there is a risk that the engine and drive system may overheat - in particular with a heavy load.
Overloading the starter battery
The electrical functions in the car load the starter battery to varying degrees. Avoid using the ignition position II when the car is switched off. Instead, use ignition position I - which uses less power.
Driving in water
Driving in water means that the car is driven through deep water on a water-covered roadway. Driving in water must be carried out with great caution.
For winter driving it is important to perform certain checks of the car in order to ensure that it can be driven safely.
Activate the hazard warning flashers if the car has a puncture in a trafficked environment.
Preparations for a long trip
Before a driving holiday or some other type of long journey, it is important to check the car's functions and equipment particularly carefully.
Drive economically and eco-consciously by driving smoothly, thinking ahead, and adjusting your driving style and speed to the prevailing conditions.
The car provides good conditions and opportunities for energy-saving driving.
Use the car's navigation system* to find the way to the closest petrol station.
