Parking Your Vehicle

Do not park your vehicle near flammable objects, such as dry grass, oil, or timber.

Heat from the exhaust can cause a fire.

When Stopped

NOTICE Continuously variable transmission models The following can damage the transmission:

  •  Depressing the accelerator and brake pedals simultaneously.
  •  Holding the vehicle in place when facing uphill by depressing the accelerator pedal.
  •  Moving the shift lever into P before the vehicle stops completely.

In extremely cold temperatures, the parking brake may freeze up if applied. If such temperatures are expected, do not apply the parking brake but, if parking on a slope, either turn the front wheels so they will contact the curb if the vehicle rolls down the slope or block the wheels to keep the vehicle from moving. If you do not take either precaution, the vehicle may roll unexpectedly, leading to a crash.
