The indicator in the instrument cluster and shift lever displays the shift lever position when the Engine Start/Stop Button is in the OFF/ ACC/ON position.

P (Park)


P (Park)

Always come to a complete stop before shifting into P (Park). This position locks the transmission and prevents the drive wheels from rotating.

To shift the gear from [R], [N], [D] or [M] to [P], press the [P] button on the shift lever.

If you turn off the engine in [D], [R] or [M], the shifting automatically changes to [P].

If you press the [P] button when the shifting is on [M] or if you turn the engine off when the shifting is on [M], the shift lever is automatically moved to right side and the shifting is changed to [P].

When the shift lever is automatically moved to right side, if you hold the shift lever by force, the warning message will be illuminated in cluster. Move the shift lever to right side manually.

When you park the vehicle, press the [P] button of shift lever with applying brake pedal and apply the parking brake.

Shifting into P (Park) while the vehicle is in motion will cause the drive wheels to lock which will cause you to lose control of the vehicle.

R (Reverse)


R (Reverse)

Use this position to drive the vehicle backward.

To shift the gear to [R] press the [UNLOCK] button of shift lever with depressing brake pedal and move the shift lever forward.

CAUTION

Always come to a complete stop before shifting into or out of R (Reverse); you may damage the transmission if you shift into R (Reverse) while the vehicle is in motion, except as explained in “Rocking the vehicle” in this section.

N (Neutral)


N (Neutral)

The wheels and transmission are not engaged. The vehicle will roll freely even on the slightest incline unless the parking brake or service brakes are applied.

In neutral range if you turn off the engine, the range will be on [N] and the engine start/stop button position will be on ACC.

To turn off engine :

1.Press the engine start/stop button again to the ON position.

2.Press the [P] button on the shift lever.

3.Press the engine start/stop button again, the engine start/stop button will change to the OFF position.

However, when you open the door with the shift lever in N (Neutral) and the engine start/stop button in the ACC position, the shift lever will automatically move to P (Park) and the engine start/stop button will change to the OFF position.

D (Drive)

This is the normal forward driving position. The transmission will automatically shift through a 8-gear sequence, providing the best fuel economy and power.

For extra power when passing another vehicle or climbing grades, depress the accelerator fully, at which time the transmission will automatically downshift to the next lower gear.

To shift into [D], depress the brake pedal and press the [UNLOCK] button of shift lever. And then move the shift lever to backward.

To shift into [D], from [N] you must depress the brake pedal.

✽ NOTICE

Always come to a complete stop before shifting into D (Drive).
