WARNING

Never leave the vehicle with the engine running. The vehicle could move suddenly, particularly if a gear is selected, and cause accidents and serious injuries.

WARNING

Start boosters could explode or cause the engine to suddenly rev.

  • Never use a start booster.

NOTICE

  • The starter and the engine could be damaged if you attempt to start the engine while the vehicle is in motion or if the engine is started again immediately after it has been switched off.
  • When the engine is cold, avoid high engine speeds, driving at full throttle and over-loading the engine.
  • Do not push-start or tow-start the engine. Unburnt fuel could damage the catalytic converter.

Do not warm up the engine by running it with the vehicle stationary, but rather pull off as soon as you can see properly through the windows. This helps the engine reach operating temperature faster and reduces emissions.

Components with a high power consumption are switched off temporarily when the engine is started.

When starting from cold, the engine may be a little noisy for the first few seconds. This is quite normal, and no cause for concern.

At outside temperatures of less than +5° C (+41° F), fumes may be detected under the vehicle if the fuel pre-heater is switched on.
