Automatic Transmission

WARNINGS

Always set the parking brake fully and make sure the gearshift is latched in P (Park). Turn the ignition to the off position and remove the key whenever you leave your vehicle.

Do not apply the brake and accelerator pedals simultaneously for more than three seconds as this limits engine rpm and labors the transmission. This may result in difficulty maintaining speed in traffic and could lead to serious injury.

Note: When you switch the ignition off, the transmission will carry out a series of checks.

You may hear slight clicking sounds. This is normal.

We have designed your vehicle to improve fuel economy by reducing fuel usage compared to a traditional torque converter automatic transmission. When you take your foot off the accelerator pedal and your vehicle begins to slow down, this can feel like a light to medium braking sensation.

With the transmission selector lever in D, your vehicle will shift automatically through the forward gears. You cannot start the engine with the transmission selector lever in this position.

The transmission will select the appropriate gear for optimum vehicle performance and economy based on ambient temperature, road gradient, vehicle load, speed and your driving style.

When you use Drive mode it provides a downshift function. See Downshift in this section.

Note: A shift will occur only when your vehicle and engine speeds are appropriate.

Sport Mode and Manual Shifting

Sport Mode

With the transmission selector lever in S, gears are selected quicker and at higher engine speeds. You cannot start the engine with the transmission selector lever in this position.

Sport mode will remain on until you either shift manually up or down the gears using the + or - buttons on the side of the transmission selector lever or you move the transmission selector lever to drive.

Hill Start Assist (If equipped)

WARNINGS

The system does not replace the parking brake. When you leave your vehicle, always apply the parking brake and move the transmission selector lever into position P (Park).

You must remain in your vehicle once you have activated the system.

During all times, you are responsible for controlling your vehicle, supervising the system and intervening, if required.

If the engine is revved excessively, or if a malfunction is detected, the system will be deactivated.

The system makes it easier to pull away when your vehicle is on a slope without the need to use the parking brake.

When the system is active, your vehicle will remain stationary on the slope for two to three seconds after you release the brake pedal. This allows you time to move your foot from the brake to the accelerator pedal. The brakes are released automatically once the engine has developed sufficient drive to prevent your vehicle from rolling down the slope. This is an advantage when pulling away on a slope, (for example from a car park ramp, traffic lights or when reversing uphill into a parking space).

The system will activate automatically on any slope which can result in significant vehicle rollback.

Using Hill Start Assist

1. Press the brake pedal to bring your vehicle to a complete standstill. Keep the brake pedal pressed.

2. If the sensors detect that your vehicle is on a slope, the system will be activated automatically.

3. When you remove your foot from the brake pedal, your vehicle will remain on the slope without rolling away for approximately two or three seconds.

This hold time will automatically be extended if you are in the process of driving off.

4. Drive off in the normal manner. The brakes will be released automatically.

Switching the System On and Off

Note: The system can only be switched on and off for manual transmissions.

Note: Once you have switched off the system, it will remain off until you switch it on again.

Your vehicle comes with the system already enabled. If desired, you can disable the feature: See General Information.
