Parking on a hill

WARNING

Always apply the parking brake when parking on an incline. Selecting a gear or putting the automatic transmission in P may not be sufficient to keep the vehicle stationary in all situations.

If the vehicle is pointing uphill:

  • Turn the front wheels so they are pointing away from the curb.

If the vehicle is pointing downhill:

  • Turn the front wheels so they are pointing toward the curb.

Heavy load uphill
