Driving on Hills

• When climbing steep hills, the car may begin to slow down and show a lack of power. If this happens, you should shift to a lower gear so that the engine will again be operating in its normal power range. Shift rapidly to prevent the car from losing momentum.

• When driving down a hill, the engine should be used for braking by shifting to next lower gear. (Do this with EITHER an automatic or manual transaxle.)

WARNING:
WARNING:
Try not to hold the brake pedal down too long or too often while going down a steep or long hill. This could cause the brakes to overheat, resulting in reduced braking efficiency.

Failure to take this precaution could result in loss of vehicle control.

CAUTION:
When descending a down hill, NEVER turn the ignition key to the “OFF” position. Emission control system and automatic transaxle (if equipped) damage may result.
