Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Driving through water

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Please follow these points in order to prevent damage to your vehicle when driving through water, for example on flooded streets:

  • Check how deep the water is before driving through it. The water may be no higher than the lower edge of the body  .
  • Do not drive faster than walking speed.
  • Never stop the vehicle, reverse or switch off the engine while in water.
  • Oncoming vehicles will create waves that could increase the water level for your vehicle to such an extent that it is not safe to drive through the water.
  • When driving through water, always switch start/stop system off.

WARNING

After driving through water, mud, slush etc., the brakes may react slowly and the braking distance will be increased as the brake discs and pads will be wet, or possibly frozen (in winter).
  • You can dry and de-ice the brakes using careful braking manoeuvres. Make sure that you do not endanger any other road users or violate any legal requirements while doing this.
  • Avoid abrupt and sudden braking manoeuvres directly after driving through water.

NOTICE

  • If you drive through water, parts of the vehicle, such as the engine, drive train, running gear and vehicle electrics, could sustain severe damage.
  • Never drive through salt water as salt can cause corrosion. Rinse all components that have been exposed to salt water thoroughly with fresh water.
