1.7.8. Advice to the driver

The first 1000 km you drive the car, constantly changing the speed of the movement.
Do not give full gas.
Do not force to work the engine at low turns.
Drive the car, switching transfers more often. On all transfers squeeze out an accelerator pedal no more, than on 3/4 courses.
You do not go with a speed above maximum.
In transit time of the first 200 km do not resort to emergency brake application without emergency.
You do not go with the switched-off engine.
Many devices at the same time do not work (for example, the amplifier of braking, a steering servoamplifier). You endanger also yourself, and other people.

Amplifier of braking
At the switched-off engine after one-two pressing of a pedal of a brake the brake amplifier is terminated. Efficiency of braking at the same time does not decrease, however for braking it will be required to make considerably bigger effort.

Steering with the electric amplifier
In case of shutdown of the hydraulic booster of steering, for example, at towage of the car with the switched-off engine, the car, nevertheless, remains operated, however for this purpose it will be required to use considerably great efforts.

Driving in mountain conditions, driving with the trailer
Cooling having blown works from the electric drive. Thus efficiency of cooling does not depend on engine turns. As on high turns of the engine more heat is generated, and on low – it is less, on rises it is not necessary to switch to a low gear until the engine without problems overcomes rise on higher transfer. Diesel engines: on raising of 10% by the steepness and do not exceed on the 1st transfer the speed of 30 km/h, on the 2nd transfer any more – 50 km/h.

Driving with freight on a roof
Do not exceed a permissible load on a roof. For safety it is necessary to distribute evenly freight and it is reliable to fix it by belts that do not allow its shift. Support pressure in tires according to loading of the car. Do not exceed the speed of 120 km/h. Check reliability of fastening of baggage more often and bring up him.

Switching off of the engine
After switching off of the engine of the device of an obduv in motor office continue to work some time for cooling of units. At very high temperature of cooling liquid, for example, after driving in mountains: approximately for 2 min. leave the engine in order to avoid accumulation of heat to idle.

Cars with engines with a turbo-supercharging
After driving with high frequency or with high load of the engine for protection of a turbocharger leave rotations of the engine to work the engine before switching off under low loading or during about 30 with idling.

Compulsory idling
Supply of fuel in the mode of compulsory idling is automatically turned off, for example, during descent or braking. In the mode of compulsory idling do not press a pedal of an accelerator and do not switch off coupling to provide efficiency of shutdown of draft. For protection against damage of the catalyst shutdown of draft is periodically deactivated at high temperature of the catalyst.

Cars with engines with a turbo-supercharging
At a bystry otpuskaniye of a pedal of an accelerator owing to air streams in a turbocharger air noise can be formed.

Rotation frequency
On each transfer it is necessary to go whenever possible by lower turns of the engine.

Engine warming up in the movement
Warm the engine in the movement, but not idling. Do not give full gas until working temperature is reached. The automatic transmission and a box of Easytronic after cold start switch to an overgear at higher turns. Thus the catalyst quickly reaches temperature demanded for optimum reduction of emission of harmful substances in an exhaust.
Not to overload the engine idling and low transfers. At the movement at too high speeds on separate transfers or the modes of driving, and also at trips wear and fuel consumption increases by small distances.

Return gear shifting
When falling speed switch back transfer – do not leave in contact coupling with the increased frequency of rotation of the engine. It is especially important when driving in mountains.
Always squeeze out coupling against the stop to avoid problems when switching and damages of the transmission. When driving do not use a coupling pedal as a support for a leg as at the same time wear of coupling increases.

Cooling having blown
The fan of an obduv is operated a thermoswitch and therefore works only if necessary.

Pedals
Do not place any objects which can roll down under pedals in the lower space and, thereby, limit its course. to provide a full speed of pedals, in their zone it is forbidden to vat pads mats.

Accumulator
At slow driving and at the standing car, for example, at the slow movement in the city, when driving on short distances and in a jam it is necessary to disconnect whenever possible consumers of the electric power (for example, heating of back glass, heating of front seats).
At launch of the engine squeeze out coupling not to load a starter and the accumulator.
