The function of the gearbox is to change the gear ratio depending on speed and power requirements.
The 6-speed box is available in two versions - reverse gear position differs between them. Look at the actual gearshift pattern imprinted on the gear lever.
- Depress the clutch pedal fully during each gear change.
- Take your foot off the clutch pedal between gear changes.
Always apply the parking brake when parking on a slope - leaving the car in gear is not sufficient to hold the car in all situations.
Reverse gear inhibitor
The reverse gear inhibitor hinders the possibility of mistakenly attempting to engage reverse gear during normal forward travel.
- Follow the gearing pattern printed on the gear lever and start from neutral position, N before moving it to R position.
- Engage reverse gear only when the car is stationary.
With the upper variant of the shifting pattern for 6-speed gearbox (see previous illustration) - first press down the gear lever in the N position in order to engage reverse gear.
