Child restraints
Child restraint systems
We recommend the Vauxhall child
restraint system which is tailored
specifically to the vehicle.
When a child restraint system is being
used, pay attention to the following
usage and installation instructions
and also those supplied with the child
restraint system.
Always comply with local or national
regulations. In some countries, the
use of child restraint systems is
forbidden on certain seats.
9 Warning
When using a child restraint
system on the front passenger
seat, the airbag systems for the
front passenger seat must be
deactivated; if not, the triggering of
the airbags poses a risk of fatal
injury to the child.
This is especially the case if rearfacing child restraint systems are
used on the front passenger seat.
Airbag deactivation 3 48.
Airbag label 3 43.
Selecting the right system
The rear seats are the most
convenient location to fasten a child
restraint system.
Children should travel facing
rearwards in the vehicle as long as
possible. This makes sure that the
child's backbone, which is still very
weak, is under less strain in the event
of an accident.
Suitable are restraint systems that
comply with valid UN ECE
regulations. Check local laws and
regulations for mandatory use of child
restraint systems.
Ensure that the child restraint system
to be installed is compatible with the
vehicle type.
Ensure that the mounting location of
the child restraint system within the
vehicle is correct, see following
tables.
Allow children to enter and exit the
vehicle only on the side facing away
from the traffic.
When the child restraint system is not
in use, secure the seat with a seat belt
or remove it from the vehicle.
Note
Do not stick anything on the child
restraint systems and do not cover
them with any other materials.
A child restraint system which has
been subjected to stress in an
accident must be replaced.

Roof rack system
Loading information
Roof rack
■ Heavy objects in the load
compartment should be evenly
distributed and placed as far
forward as possible. Ensure the
backrests are securely engaged. If
objects can be stacked, the heavier
objects should be placed at the
bottom.
With rear seats in the folded
position, objects must not be
stacked higher than the seat
backrests.
■ Secure objects with lashing straps
attached to lashing eyes 3 69.
■ Secure loose objects in the load
compartment, e.g. with a luggage
floor net, to prevent sliding.
■ When transporting objects in the
load compartment, the backrests of
the rear seats must not be angled
forward.
■ Do not allow the load to protrude
above the upper edge of the
backrests.
For safety reasons and to avoid
damage to the roof, the vehicle
approved roof rack system is
recommended. For further
information contact a workshop.
Fasten the roof rack to the roof rails
following the instructions that
accompany the system, ensuring that
the roof load is evenly distributed over
the side or cross rails.
Loads must not be placed on the roof
surface. To prevent damage or loss,
check frequently that roof loads are
securely fastened.
Driving with a roof load affects the
vehicle centre of gravity; drive
carefully in crosswinds and do not
drive at high speeds.
Remove the roof rack when not in
use.
■ Do not place any objects on the
load compartment cover or the
instrument panel, and do not cover
the sensor on top of the instrument
panel.
■ The load must not obstruct the
operation of the pedals, electrical
parking brake and gear selector, or
hinder the freedom of movement of
the driver. Do not place any
unsecured objects in the interior.
■ Do not drive with an open load
compartment.
9 Warning
Always make sure that the load in
the vehicle is securely stowed.
Otherwise objects can be thrown
around inside the vehicle and
cause personal injury or damage
to the load or car.
■ The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (see identification
plate 3 198) and the EC kerb
weight.
Storage
To calculate the EC kerb weight,
enter the data for your vehicle in the
Weights table at the front of this
manual.
The EC kerb weight includes
weights for the driver (68 kg),
luggage (7 kg) and all fluids (tank
90 % full).
Optional equipment and
accessories increase the kerb
weight.
■ Driving with a roof load increases
the sensitivity of the vehicle to
cross-winds and has a detrimental
effect on vehicle handling due to
the vehicle's higher centre of
gravity. Distribute the load evenly
and secure it properly with retaining
straps. Adjust the tyre pressure and
vehicle speed according to the load
conditions. Check and retighten the
straps frequently.
Do not drive faster than 75 mph.
The permissible roof load is
100 kg. The roof load is the
combined weight of the roof rack
and the load.

Driving and operating
Engine exhaust
9 Danger
Engine exhaust gases contain
poisonous carbon monoxide,
which is colourless and odourless
and could be fatal if inhaled.
If exhaust gases enter the interior
of the vehicle, open the windows.
Have the cause of the fault
rectified by a workshop.
Avoid driving with an open load
compartment, otherwise exhaust
gases could enter the vehicle.
The filter is cleaned by periodically
burning off the soot particles at high
temperature. This process takes
place automatically under set driving
conditions and may take more than
15 minutes. Autostop is not available
and fuel consumption may be higher
during this period. The emission of
smells and smoke during this process
is normal.
Diesel particle filter
The diesel particle filter system filters
harmful soot particles out of the
exhaust gases. The system includes
a self-cleaning function that runs
automatically during driving without
any notification.
If cleaning of the filter is required and
previous driving conditions did not
enable automatic cleaning, it will be
indicated by control indicator %
3 87.
% illuminates, accompanied by a
warning chime, when diesel particle
filter is full. Start cleaning process as
soon as possible.
% flashes when diesel particle filter
has reached the maximum filling
level. Start cleaning process
immediately to avoid damage to the
engine. A warning chime sounds
every 3 minutes until the cleaning
process is complete.
Cleaning process
Malfunction indicator light 3 84.
Under certain driving conditions, e.g.
short distances, the system cannot
clean itself automatically.
127
To activate the cleaning process,
continue driving, keeping engine
speed above 2000 revolutions per
minute. Shift down if necessary.
Diesel particle filter cleaning is then
started.
If control indicator Z illuminates
additionally in the instrument cluster
when the engine is running, there
128
Driving and operating
may be a fault in the diesel particle
filter 3 84. Cleaning is not possible,
seek the assistance of a workshop
immediately.
Caution
If the cleaning process is
interrupted, there is a risk of
provoking severe engine damage.
Cleaning takes place quickest at high
engine speeds and loads.
Do not switch off the engine until the
cleaning process is complete. This is
indicated by the extinguished control
indicator %.
Catalytic converter
The catalytic converter reduces the
amount of harmful substances in the
exhaust gases.
Caution
Fuel grades other than those listed
on pages 3 143, 3 202 could
damage the catalytic converter or
electronic components.
Unburnt petrol will overheat and
damage the catalytic converter.
Therefore avoid excessive use of
the starter, running the fuel tank
dry and starting the engine by
pushing or towing.
In the event of misfiring, uneven
engine running, a reduction in engine
performance or other unusual
problems, have the cause of the fault
rectified by a workshop as soon as
possible. In an emergency, driving
can be continued for a short period,
keeping vehicle speed and engine
speed low.

brake before starting.
Do not accelerate while engaging a
gear. Never depress the accelerator
pedal and brake pedal at the same
time.
When a gear is engaged, the vehicle
slowly begins to creep when the foot
brake is released.
Engine braking
To utilise the engine braking effect,
select a lower gear in good time when
driving downhill - see Manual mode.
Use of the engine braking effect, as
opposed to the use of the foot brake
when driving downhill, can extend the
life of the brakes.
129
Rocking the vehicle
Rocking the vehicle is only
permissible if the vehicle is stuck in
water, ice, sand, mud, snow or a dip.
Move the selector lever between D
and R in a repeat pattern while
applying light pressure to the
accelerator pedal when the vehicle is
in gear. Do not race the engine and
avoid sudden acceleration.
If the vehicle cannot be released after
rocking the vehicle several times,
your vehicle may need to be towed
3 188.
Parking

engage P.
The ignition key can only be removed
when the selector lever is in position
P.
130
Driving and operating
Manual mode
Move selector lever out of position D
towards the left and then forwards or
backwards.
< = Shift to a higher gear.
] = Shift to a lower gear.
Tip selector lever in the appropriate
direction. It then returns to the centre
position.
Gearshifting in manual mode can be
achieved whilst accelerating. If the
engine speed is too low, the
transmission will automatically shift to
a lower gear, even in manual mode,
to prevent the engine from stalling.
If a higher gear is selected when
vehicle speed is too low, or a lower
gear when vehicle speed is too high,
the shift is not executed.
In manual mode, no automatic
shifting to a higher gear takes place
at high engine revolutions.
Gears can be skipped by moving the
selector lever repeatedly at short
intervals.
After stopping, 1st gear is
automatically selected. When starting
on slippery surfaces, tip selector lever
forwards to engage 2nd gear.
To move back to position D, move
selector lever back to the right.
Electronic driving
programmes
■ Following a cold start, the operating
temperature programme increases
engine speed to quickly bring the
catalytic converter to the required
temperature.

the transmission to adapt gearshift
patterns, improving the vehicle's fuel
economy.
Driving and operating
Activation
In automatic mode, press button
s; control indicator s
illuminates in the instrument cluster
3 88.
The settings of certain electronic
systems are adapted to reduce fuel
consumption:
■ The engine reacts less quickly to
the accelerator pedal.
■ Automatic upshift points occur
sooner and downshift points occur
later.
■ The transmission locks itself to the
engine at cruising speeds, to
improve efficiency and increase
power and torque.
■ The fuel supply is automatically cutoff more quickly during vehicle
deceleration. Overrun cut-off
3 124.
Do not use fuel economy mode whilst
towing, e.g. a trailer.
Deactivation
Fuel economy mode is switched off
by pressing button s again;
control indicator s extinguishes in

harsher than normal or, in the case of
a serious fault, cancelled altogether.
Have the cause of the fault remedied
by a workshop.
If control indicator g illuminates in
the instrument cluster when the
engine is running, this may indicate a
fault in the transmission electronics
3 84. The electronics switch to the
emergency running programme, fuel
consumption may increase and the
driveability of the vehicle may be
affected. Seek the assistance of a
workshop.

pedal and depress again; then repeat
gear selection.
Do not slip the clutch unnecessarily.
When operating, depress the clutch
pedal completely. Do not use the
pedal as a foot rest.
Driving and operating
Drive systems
All-wheel drive
All-wheel drive is an active-ondemand system that engages
automatically, with no action required
by the driver. Depending on the
driving environment, the vehicle
switches between two-wheel drive
and four-wheel drive, to give the
vehicle more traction and stability
when necessary.
If the front wheels begin to slip, the
rear wheels will automatically begin to
drive the vehicle as required. More
torque is transferred to the wheels
that have the most traction, so the
vehicle has optimum grip at all times.
There may be a slight engagement
noise during hard use.
As well as enabling the vehicle to be
driven off-road, this system also
enables the vehicle to be driven on
normal roads without incurring
excessive tyre and drivetrain wear or
causing poor control.
Ensure tyres (including the spare) are
inflated to the correct pressure
3 207 and are suitable for the
prevailing road conditions. For
optimum system performance, the
vehicle's tyres should not have
varying degrees of wear.
If control indicator B flashes in the
instrument cluster during driving, Allwheel drive is temporarily disabled. If
B flashes continuously, there is a fault
in the system; seek the assistance of
a workshop.
All-wheel drive control indicator B
3 85.
On-road driving
The increased traction of All-wheel
drive vehicles offers greater driving
control in adverse road conditions,
particularly heavy snow and ice.
However, All-wheel drive vehicles are
not "skid-proof" and do not decrease
stopping distances.
All-wheel drive vehicles have a higher
centre of gravity than conventional
vehicles. Always approach curves at
an appropriate driving speed. Do not
133
attempt to go as fast through turns as
you might in a conventional vehicle.
Strong crosswinds can affect the
normal steering of the vehicle. Drive
slower under strong crosswind
conditions.
Off-road driving
■ Avoid protruding objects (such as
rocks or tree stumps) that may
damage the underbody and tyres of
your vehicle.
■ Test the brakes after operating in
mud, to clear excess mud from the
braking surfaces.
■ Grip the steering wheel when
travelling over rough terrain.
Terrain conditions can cause rapid
and unexpected movement in the
steering.
The ground clearance, ramp angle,
angle of approach and departure and
wading depth need to be considered,
especially in hilly conditions and
when wading, to prevent the vehicle
becoming stuck and possibly
damaged.
Vehicle dimensions 3 204.
134
Driving and operating
Towing the vehicle 3 188.
Driving through water
Do not exceed the maximum wading
depth 3 204.
Check the depth of water: choose the
lowest entry and departure angles
before entering. Maintain a steady
engine speed, to help prevent water
from entering the exhaust system, but
do not exceed 3 mph, to avoid
splashing the water.
Drive with the flow wherever possible,
not against it. If you have to drive
against the flow, try to drive at an
angle to it, so that the leading corner
of the vehicle will help deflect water
from the engine compartment. Avoid
splashing the water - if the ignition
system becomes wet, the engine may
stall.
Avoid water entering the air intake
system. If water enters the air intake
system, engine seizure with severe
costly damage may result.
Test the brakes after leaving the
water - wet brakes are less effective
than dry ones. Perform the service
operations for wading , involving
checks for water contamination, at
the earliest opportunity.
Service checks after wading
Check for the ingress of water into the
following:
■ Brake fluid reservoir
■ Air cleaner element
■ Engine
■ Transmission
■ Axles
■ Interior of vehicle
Renew any lubricating oil or hydraulic
fluid that has a milky appearance,
indicating contamination with water.
Cleaning
Clean the vehicle thoroughly and as
soon as possible after driving offroad.
Do not let mud remain dry on any part
of the vehicle as it becomes abrasive
and can damage paint, glass, seals,
bearings and brake components. If
left to build up, mud can seriously
affect the airflow through and over
mechanical components and cause
localised overheating and failure of
parts, especially in the engine
compartment.
Ensure the radiator core and the area
between the radiator and intercooler/
oil cooler (where installed) is cleaned,
to maintain proper cooling air flow.
Check the radiator and cooler cores
for blockage (sand, silt etc.).
Check the tyre treads.
Clean and check the mechanical
parts of the vehicle, particularly the
following areas:
■ Driveshafts, including sealing
bellows
■ Front brake calipers, pads and
discs
■ Front suspension
■ Clutch fork sealing bellows
■ Rear brake calipers, pads and
discs
■ Rear suspension
■ Fuel tank and underguard
■ Breathers, axles and fuel tank
■ Load sensing valve
Driving and operating
■ Transfer box and underguard
■ Engine oil pan and underguard
Observe the following:
■ Do not spray high-pressure water
directly at the vehicle seals
■ The wheels must be removed to
clean all mud and stones from the
brake calipers and to check brake
pad wear
■ The areas on the upper side of the
underguards must be cleared of
stones, to prevent damage to the
engine oil pan and the fuel tank
Brakes
The brake system comprises two
independent brake circuits.
If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can
still be braked using the other brake
circuit. However, braking effect is
achieved only when the brake pedal
is depressed firmly. Considerably
more force is needed for this. The
braking distance is extended. Seek
the assistance of a workshop before
continuing your journey.
When the engine is not running, the
support of the brake servo unit
disappears once the brake pedal has
been depressed once or twice.
Braking effect is not reduced, but
braking requires significantly greater
force. It is especially important to bear
this in mind when being towed.
Control indicator R 3 84.
Antilock brake system
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
135
ABS starts to regulate brake pressure
as soon as a wheel shows a tendency
to lock. The vehicle remains
steerable, even during hard braking.
ABS control is made apparent
through a pulse in the brake pedal
and the noise of the regulation
process.
For optimum braking, keep the brake
pedal fully depressed throughout the
braking process, despite the fact that
the pedal is pulsating. Do not reduce
the pressure on the pedal.
After starting off, the system performs
a self-test which may be audible.
Control indicator u 3 85.
Fault
9 Warning
If there is a fault in the ABS, the
wheels may be liable to lock due
to braking that is heavier than
normal. The advantages of ABS
are no longer available. During
136
Driving and operating
hard braking, the vehicle can no
longer be steered and may
swerve.
You can continue driving, provided
you drive with care and anticipation.
Have the cause of the fault remedied
by a workshop.
Parking brake
Electrical parking brake
Applying when vehicle is stationary
Pull switch m, the electrical parking
brake operates automatically with
adequate force. For maximum force,
e.g. parking with a trailer or on
inclines, pull switch m twice.
The electrical parking brake can
always be activated, even if the
ignition is off.
Do not operate electrical parking
brake system too often without
engine running as this will discharge
the battery.
Before leaving the vehicle, check the
electrical parking brake status.
Control indicator m 3 85.
Releasing
Switch on ignition. Keep foot brake
depressed and then push switch m.
If the foot brake is not depressed
when attempting to release electrical
parking brake, a warning chime will
sound and control indicator illuminates in the instrument cluster
3 89.
Drive away function
With the engine running, selecting a
forward gear (manual transmission)
or engaging D (automatic
transmission) and then depressing
the accelerator pedal automatically
releases the electrical parking brake.
This is not possible when the switch
m is pulled at the same time.
This function also helps driving away
on inclines.
Aggressive drive away may reduce
life time of wear parts.
Dynamic braking when vehicle is
moving
When the vehicle is moving and the
switch m is kept pulled, a warning
chime will sound and the electrical
parking brake system will decelerate
the vehicle, but will not apply
statically.
As soon as the switch m is released,
dynamic braking will be stopped.
Driving and operating
Fault
Failure mode of electrical parking
brake is indicated by control indicator
j 3 85.
In the event of a fault, to apply
electrical parking brake: pull and hold
the switch m for a few seconds. If
control indicator m illuminates,
electrical parking brake has been
applied successfully.
To release electrical parking brake:
push and hold the switch m for a few
seconds. If control indicator m
extinguishes, electrical parking brake
has been released successfully.
If control indicator m flashes:
electrical parking brake is not fully
applied or released. When m is
continuously flashing, with ignition
switched on depress brake pedal,
release electrical parking brake and
retry applying.
If m continues to flash, do not drive
the vehicle. If necessary, place
wedge blocks or equivalent in front of
and behind wheels to prevent vehicle
movement. Seek the assistance of a
workshop to have the cause of the
fault remedied.
Brake assist
If the brake pedal is depressed
quickly and forcefully, maximum
brake force is automatically applied
(full braking).
Maintain steady pressure on the
brake pedal for as long as full braking
is required. Maximum brake force is
automatically reduced when the
brake pedal is released.
Hill start assist
The system helps prevent unintended
movement when driving away on
inclines.
When releasing the foot brake after
stopping on an incline, the brakes
remain on for a further 2 seconds. The
brakes release automatically as soon
as the vehicle begins to accelerate.
137
Ride control systems
Electronic Stability Control
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
improves driving stability when
necessary, regardless of the type of
road surface or tyre grip. It also
prevents the drive wheels from
spinning.
As soon as the vehicle starts to
swerve (understeer/oversteer),
engine output is reduced and the
wheels are braked individually. This
considerably improves the driving
stability of the vehicle on slippery road
surfaces.
ESC is operational as soon as control
indicators b and t extinguish in the
instrument cluster after switching on
the ignition.
When ESC is active b flashes 3 86.

Control indicator t 3 87.
Hydraulic brake assist
When the ESC function comes into
action and recognises any
emergency situation requiring hard
braking, it automatically delivers
increased braking pressure to the
wheels.
Active rollover protection
If the vehicle moves in an unstable
manner, this function helps the
vehicle maintain normal stability.
With ESC active, if wheels are
slipping on wet, snowy or icy roads,
engine speed may not increase when
accelerator pedal is depressed. The
vehicle may not move.
Trailer stability assist
If the system detects snaking
movements, engine power is reduced
and the vehicle/trailer combination is
selectively braked until the snaking
ceases. While system is working keep
steering wheel as still as possible.
Descent control system
The Descent control system (DCS)
allows the vehicle to travel at a low
speed without depressing the foot
brake. The vehicle will automatically
decelerate to a low speed and remain
at that speed when the system is
activated. Some noise or vibration
from the brake system may be
apparent when the system is active.
Caution
Use only when descending steep
grades while driving off-road. Do
not use when driving on normal
road surfaces. Unnecessary
usage of the DCS function, such
as while driving on normal roads,
may damage the brake system
and the ESC function.

to be deactivated.
Fault
The yellow control indicator u flashes
to indicate that the system is not
ready for conditions to operate, due to
the high temperature (approx.
350 - 400 °C) of friction material,

extremely high temperature
(over 400 °C) of friction material,
through severe or repeated braking. It
will extinguish when the temperature
drops below 350 °C. These
temperatures may differ according to
vehicle conditions or outside
conditions.
Flashing or illumination of the yellow
control indicator u reminds the driver
that the friction material needs to cool
down: drive the vehicle without
braking as much as possible. If the
control indicator does not extinguish,
have the cause of the fault remedied
by a workshop.

Important hints for using the
parking assist system
9 Warning
Under certain circumstances,
various reflective surfaces on
objects or clothing as well as
external noise sources may cause
the system to fail to detect
obstacles.
Special attention has to be paid to
low obstacles which can damage
the lower part of the bumper.
Caution
Performance of the system can be
reduced when sensors are
covered, e.g. by ice or snow.
Performance of the parking assist
system can be reduced due to
heavy loading.
Special conditions apply if there
are taller vehicles in the vicinity
(e.g. off-road vehicles, mini vans,
vans). Object identification and
correct distance indication in the
upper part of these vehicles
cannot be guaranteed.
Objects with a very small reflection
cross-section, e.g. objects of
narrow size or soft materials, may
not be detected by the system.
Parking assist systems do not
detect objects outside the
detection range.
Driving and operating
Fuel
Caution
Fuel for petrol engines
Only use unleaded fuel that complies
with European standard EN 228 or
E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent.
Your engine is capable of running
with E10 fuel that fulfills these
standards. E10 fuel contains up to
10 % bioethanol.
Use fuel with the recommended
octane rating 3 202. Use of fuel with
too low an octane rating can reduce
engine power and torque and slightly
increases fuel consumption.
Caution
Do not use fuel or fuel additives
that contain metallic compounds
such as manganese-based
additives. This may cause engine
damage.
Use of fuel that does not comply to
EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or
equivalent can lead to deposits or
engine damage and may affect
your warranty.
Caution
Use of fuel with too low an octane
rating could lead to uncontrolled
combustion and engine damage.
Note
Use unleaded Premium fuel only for
the following countries:
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus,
Moldova.
Fuel for ethanol adapted
engines (E85)
If access to E85 is limited then fuel
with a different proportion of ethanol
or normal RON 95 can be used for
refuelling. The engine's control
143
management system is adjusted
automatically according to the
amount of ethanol in the fuel.
E85 fuel must fulfil the CWA 15293 or
SS 155480 standard.
When the temperature is about
-10 °C or lower a greater proportion of
petrol should be used. E85 in
combination with low temperatures
could lead to the car being more
difficult to start. A slightly higher
proportion of petrol improves the cold
start properties considerably.
During the engine's warm-up phase
(below +50 °C) engine torque is
limited when driving with a proportion
of ethanol.
Ethanol contains less energy per litre
than petrol, which is why fuel
consumption increases when driving
on E85 compared with petrol. A
consequence of this is that a tank of
E85 covers fewer miles than a tank of
petrol.
144
Driving and operating
Caution
Certain additives in petrol could, in
combination with ethanol, cause
reduced driveability. For this
reason, refuel with a full tank of
petrol every 6000 miles. Use up
the majority of this before
refuelling the car again.
Fuel for diesel engines
Only use diesel fuel that complies
with EN 590.
In countries outside the European
Union use Euro-Diesel fuel with a
sulphur concentration below 50 ppm.
Caution
Use of fuel that does not comply
with EN 590 or similar can lead to
engine power loss, increased
wear or engine damage and loss
of warranty.
Do not use marine diesel oils, heating
oils, Aquazole and similar dieselwater emulsions. Diesel fuels must
not be diluted with fuels for petrol
engines.
Refuelling
9 Danger
Before refuelling, switch off engine
and any external heaters with
combustion chambers. Switch off
any mobile phones.
Follow the operating and safety
instructions of the filling station
when refuelling.
Caution
In case of misfuelling, do not
switch on ignition.
Fuel filler flap is located at left rear
side of vehicle.
The fuel filler flap can only be opened
if the vehicle is unlocked 3 20.
Release the fuel filler flap by pushing
the flap.
9 Danger
Fuel is flammable and explosive.
No smoking. No naked flames or
sparks.
If you can smell fuel in your
vehicle, have the cause of this
remedied immediately by an
authorized dealer.
To unlock fuel filler cap: turn it
anticlockwise. If hissing occurs, wait
until it stops before completely
unscrewing the cap.
Driving and operating
The fuel filler cap can be retained in
the holder on the inside of the fuel
filler flap.
When refuelling, fully insert the pump
nozzle and switch it on.
After the automatic cut-off, the fuel
tank can be topped up with a
maximum two doses of fuel.
Caution
Wipe off any overflowing fuel
immediately.
After refuelling, replace the fuel filler
cap and turn it clockwise until you
hear several clicks. Ensure the cap is
screwed in completely, otherwise
control indicator Z may illuminate in
the instrument cluster 3 84.
Close fuel filler flap.
Fuel filler cap
Only a genuine fuel filler cap provides

Driving and operating
Trailer hitch
General information
The coupling ball bar is kept in a bag,
fastened with a strap and is stowed
below the floor cover in the load
compartment.
Only use towing equipment that has
been approved for your vehicle.
Entrust retrofitting of towing
equipment to a workshop. It may be
necessary to make changes that
affect the cooling system, heat
shields or other equipment.
Control indicator á illuminates in the
instrument cluster when a trailer is
connected to the vehicle 3 90.
Driving characteristics and
towing tips
In the case of trailers with brakes,
attach the break-away stopping cable
to the eye - not to the coupling ball
bar.
If no eye is available, loop cable
around coupling ball bar. Ensure
cable is crossed under the vertical
coupling socket to ensure the trailer
nose cannot drop to the ground if it
becomes separated from the trailer
hitch. Do not allow the cable to drag
along the ground and always allow
enough slack to permit full turning.
Follow the instructions supplied with
the towing equipment.
Before attaching a trailer, lubricate
the coupling ball. However, do not do
so if a stabiliser, which acts on the
coupling ball, is being used to reduce
snaking movements. For trailers with
low driving stability, the use of a
friction-type stabiliser is strongly
recommended.
Do not drive faster than 50 mph, even
in countries where higher speeds are
permitted. When driving uphill, do not
drive faster than 20 mph in 1st gear,
or 30 mph in 2nd gear.
If the trailer starts snaking, drive more
slowly, do not attempt to correct the
steering and brake sharply if
necessary.
When driving downhill, drive in the
same gear as if driving uphill and
drive at a similar speed.
Adjust tyre pressure to the value
specified for full load 3 207.
Trailer towing
Trailer loads
The permissible trailer loads are
vehicle-dependent and enginedependent maximum values which
must not be exceeded. The actual
trailer load is the difference between
the actual gross weight of the trailer
and the actual coupling socket load
with the trailer coupled.
When the trailer load is being
checked, therefore, only the trailer
wheels - and not the jockey wheel must be standing on the weighing
apparatus.
The permissible trailer loads are
specified in the vehicle documents. In
general, they are valid for gradients
up to max. 12 %.
Driving and operating
The permitted trailer load applies up
to the specified incline and up to an
altitude of 1000 metres above sea
level. Since engine power decreases
as altitude increases due to the air
becoming thinner, therefore reducing
climbing ability, the permissible gross
train weight also decreases by 10 %
for every 1000 metres of additional
altitude. The gross train weight does
not have to be reduced when driving
on roads with slight inclines (less than
8 %, e.g. motorways).
The permissible gross train weight
must not be exceeded. This weight is
specified on the identification plate
3 198.
Vertical coupling load
The vertical coupling load is the load
exerted by the trailer on the coupling
ball. It can be varied by changing the
weight distribution when loading the
trailer.
The maximum permissible vertical
coupling load (80 kg) is specified on
the towing equipment identification
plate and in the vehicle documents.
Always aim for the maximum load,
especially in the case of heavy
trailers. The vertical coupling load
should never fall below 25 kg.
When measuring the vertical coupling
load, ensure the drawbar of the
loaded trailer is at the same height as
it will be when the trailer is coupled
with the towing vehicle loaded. This is
particularly important for trailers with
tandem axle.
Rear axle load
When the trailer is coupled and the
towing vehicle is fully loaded
(including all occupants), the
permissible rear axle load (see
identification plate or vehicle
documents) must not be exceeded.
National regulations regarding
maximum speeds for vehicles towing
a trailer must be observed.
147
Towing equipment
Caution
When operating without a trailer,
remove the coupling ball bar.
Towing equipment with
detachable coupling ball bar
The coupling ball bar is kept in a bag,
fastened with a strap and is stowed
below the floor cover in the load
compartment.
Fitting the coupling ball bar
148
Driving and operating
Remove sealing plug from the hole for
the coupling ball bar and stow it in the
load compartment.
Confirm that the colour marking on
the lever is red.
Inserting the coupling ball bar
Insert the coupling ball bar into the
coupling housing and push firmly
downwards until the coupling ball bar
audibly engages. If it does not
engage, repeat fitting procedure.
Do not swing the coupling ball bar to
the left or right, or upwards and
downwards, to avoid disrupting
correct fitting.
Lock coupling ball bar by turning the
supplied key in the lock cylinder of the
coupling ball bar. Remove key.
Check that the coupling ball bar is
correctly attached:
■ Green marking must be visible on
lever.
■ Coupling ball bar must be seated
firmly in coupling housing.
Coupling ball bar must be locked and
key must be removed.
Driving and operating
9 Warning
Towing a trailer is permitted only
when the coupling ball bar is fitted
correctly. If the coupling ball bar
cannot be properly attached, seek
the assistance of a workshop.
Eye for break-away stopping cable
In the case of trailers with brakes,
attach the break-away stopping cable
to the eye - not to the coupling ball
bar.
Dismounting the coupling ball bar
Unlock coupling ball bar and remove
key. Push lever to the left, towards the
coupling ball bar and turn it
downwards. Pull coupling ball bar out
of coupling housing.
Remove any rust or dirt from area
around the coupling housing and
coupling ball bar connection before
inserting sealing plug in the hole.
Place the coupling ball bar in the bag
supplied, fasten it with the strap and
stow it below the floor cover in the
load compartment.
Do not use steam-jet cleaners or
other high-pressure cleaners to clean
the coupling ball bar.
Trailer stability assist
If the system detects snaking
movements, engine power is reduced
and the vehicle/trailer combination is
selectively braked until the snaking
ceases. While system is working keep
steering wheel as still as possible.
Trailer stability assist (TSA) is a
function of the Electronic Stability
Control 3 137.

Tyre pressure
Check the pressure of cold tyres at
least every 14 days and before any
long journey. Do not forget the spare
wheel. This also applies to vehicles
with tyre pressure monitoring system.
Use the valve cap key to make
unscrewing the valve caps easier.
The valve cap key is located on the
inside of the tank flap.
Tyre pressure 3 207.
The tyre pressure data refers to cold
tyres. It applies to summer and winter
tyres.
Always inflate the spare tyre to the
pressure specified for full load.
The ECO tyre pressure serves to
achieve the smallest amount of fuel
consumption possible.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and
fuel economy and will increase tyre
wear.
The tyre pressure tables show all
possible tyre combinations 3 207.
For the tyres approved for your
vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of
Conformity provided with your vehicle
or other national registration
documents.
The driver is responsible for correct
adjustment of tyre pressure.
9 Warning
If the pressure is too low, this can
result in considerable tyre warmup and internal damage, leading to
tread separation and even to tyre
blow-out at high speeds.
If the tyre pressure shall be reduced
or increased on a vehicle with tyre
pressure monitoring system, switch
off ignition.
Tyre pressure monitoring
system
The tyre pressure monitoring system
checks the pressure of all four wheels
once per minute when vehicle speed
exceeds a certain limit.
Caution
Tyre pressure monitoring system
warns only about low tyre pressure
condition and does not replace
regular tyre maintenance by the
driver.
All wheels must be equipped with
pressure sensors and the tyres must
have the prescribed pressure. If
wheels without sensors are mounted,
the tyre pressure monitoring system
is not operational. Retrofitting of
sensors is possible.
Note
In countries where the tyre pressure
monitoring system is legally
required, the use of wheels without
pressure sensors will invalidate the
vehicle type approval.
Vehicle care
The current tyre pressures can be
shown in the menu item Tyres in the
Board Computer menu. Press the
BC button on the Infotainment system
and select the menu item.
The tyre pressure monitoring system
automatically detects the vehicle
load. A message appears on the
information display if inconsistent tyre
pressures are detected. In some
versions, the message is displayed in
abbreviated form.

Vehicle care
If the tyre pressure is to be reduced or
increased, switch off the ignition. Tyre
pressures 3 176, 3 207.
External high-power radio equipment
could disrupt the tyre pressure
monitoring system.
The tyre pressure monitoring system
valve cores and sealing rings must be
replaced each time the tyres are
changed.
For safety reasons it is recommended
that the tread depth of the tyres on
one axle should not vary by more than
2 mm.
Tread depth
Check tread depth at regular
intervals.
Tyres should be replaced for safety
reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm
(4 mm for winter tyres).
Changing tyre and wheel
size
If tyres of a different size than those
fitted at the factory are used, it may be
necessary to reprogramme the
speedometer as well as the nominal
tyre pressure and make other vehicle
modifications.
After converting to a different tyre
size, have the label with tyre
pressures replaced.
Temperature compensation
Tyre pressure depends on the
temperature of the tyre. During
driving, tyre temperature and
pressure increase.
The tyre pressure value shown in the
display is the actual tyre pressure.
Therefore it is important to check tyre
pressure with cold tyres.
Tyres age, even if they are not used.
We recommend tyre replacement
every 6 years.
The legally permissible minimum
tread depth (1.6 mm) has been
reached when the tread has worn
down as far as one of the tread wear
indicators (TWI). Their position is
indicated by markings on the
sidewall.
If there is more wear at the front than
the rear, swap round front wheels and
rear wheels. Ensure that the direction
of rotation of the wheels is the same
as before.
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheels
may lead to accidents and will
invalidate the vehicle type
approval.
If wheel rims of a different type are to
be installed, the wheel nuts may also
need to be changed. We recommend
you consult your service partner.
Vehicle care
Wheel covers
Tyre chains
Tyre chains are permitted only on
16 inch wheels. We recommend you
consult your service partner.
If the use of tyre chains is required
after suffering a flat front tyre, fit the
temporary spare wheel on the rear
axle and transfer one of the rear
wheels to the front axle.
General
The use of tyre chains is not permitted
on the temporary spare wheel.
Tyre chains are only permitted on the
front wheels.
They must be fitted to the tyres
symmetrically in order to achieve a
concentric fit.
Always use fine mesh chains that add
no more than 15 mm to the tyre tread
and the inboard sides (including chain
lock).
Minor damage to the tyre tread or
sidewall can be repaired with the tyre
repair kit.
Do not remove foreign bodies from
the tyres.
Tyre damage exceeding 4 mm or that
is at the tyre's sidewall near the rim
cannot be repaired with the tyre repair
kit.
In vehicles with a tyre repair kit, there
may not be a jack and vehicle tool kit.
Vehicle tools 3 173.
Temporary spare wheel 3 185.
Wheel covers and tyres that are
factory approved for the respective
vehicle and comply with all of the
relevant wheel and tyre combination
requirements must be used.

go until it stops in a horizontal
position.
Attach a tow rope - or better still a tow
rod - to the front towing eye, never to
the bumper or front suspension units.
Do not tow the vehicle from the rear.
The front towing eye must only be
used for towing and not recovering a
vehicle.
Switch on ignition to release steering
wheel lock and to permit operation of
brake lights, horn and windscreen
wiper.
Transmission in neutral.
When the engine is not running,
considerably more force is needed to
brake and steer.
Keep tow rope clear of front bumper,
and ensure it is securely fixed to the
towing eye at both ends. Pull on the
tow rope to check.
To prevent the entry of exhaust gases
from the towing vehicle, switch on the
air recirculation system 3 115 and
close the windows.
Vehicles with manual transmission:
The vehicle must be towed facing
forwards. The maximum speed is
55 mph. In all other cases, and when
the transmission is defective, the front
axle must be raised off the ground.
189
Vehicles with automatic transmission:
Do not tow the vehicle using the
towing eye. Towing with a tow rope
could cause severe damage to the
transmission. When towing a vehicle
with automatic transmission, use flat
bed or wheel lift equipment.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye
and replace the spoiler lip. Store
towing eye in the storage
compartment below the floor cover in
the load compartment.

slack in the tow rope too quickly.
After towing, unscrew the rear towing
eye attachment clockwise to remove,
and reinstall the cover.
Appearance care
Exterior care
Locks
The locks are lubricated at the factory
using a high quality lock cylinder
grease. Use de-icing agent only when
absolutely necessary, as this has a
degreasing effect and impairs lock
function. After using a de-icing agent,
have the locks regreased by a
workshop.
Washing
The paintwork of your vehicle is
exposed to environmental influences.
Wash and wax your vehicle regularly.
When using automatic car washes,
select a programme that includes
waxing.
Bird droppings, dead insects, resin,
pollen and the like should be cleaned
off immediately, as they contain
aggressive constituents which can
cause paint damage.
Vehicle care
If using a car wash, comply with the
car wash manufacturer's instructions.
The windscreen wiper and rear
window wiper must be switched off.
Remove antenna and external
accessories such as roof racks etc.
If you wash your vehicle by hand,
make sure that the insides of the
wheel housings are also thoroughly
rinsed out.
Clean edges and folds on opened
doors and the bonnet as well as the
areas they cover.
Caution
Always use a cleaning agent with
a pH value of 4 to 9.
Do not use cleaning agents on hot
surfaces.
Have the door hinges of all doors
greased by a workshop.
Do not clean the engine compartment
with a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
When cleaning with a high-pressure
jet cleaner, ensure a minimum
distance of 30 cm when working
around the tailgate to prevent
unintended unlocking.
Thoroughly rinse and leather-off the
vehicle. Rinse leather frequently. Use
separate leathers for painted and
glass surfaces: remnants of wax on
the windows will impair vision.
Exterior lights
Headlight and other light covers are
made of plastic. Do not use any
abrasive or caustic agents, do not use
an ice scraper, and do not clean them
dry.
Polishing and waxing
Wax the vehicle regularly (at the
latest when water no longer beads).
Otherwise, the paintwork will dry out.
Polishing is necessary only if the paint
has become dull or if solid deposits
have become attached to it.
Paintwork polish with silicone forms a
protective film, making waxing
unnecessary.
191
Plastic body parts must not be treated
with wax or polishing agents.
Windows and windscreen wiper
blades
Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois
leather together with window cleaner
and insect remover.
When cleaning the rear window,
make sure the heating element inside
is not damaged.
For mechanical removal of ice, use a
sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the
scraper firmly against the glass so
that no dirt can get under it and
scratch the glass.
Clean smearing wiper blades with a
soft cloth and window cleaner.
Sunroof
Never clean with solvents or abrasive
agents, fuels, aggressive media
(e.g. paint cleaner, acetonecontaining solutions etc.), acidic or
highly alkaline media or abrasive
pads. Do not apply wax or polishing
agents to the sunroof.
192
Vehicle care
Wheels and tyres
Before and after winter, wash the
underbody and have the protective
wax coating checked.
Do not use high-pressure jet
cleaners.
Clean rims with a pH-neutral wheel
cleaner.
Rims are painted and can be treated
with the same agents as the body.
Towing equipment
Paintwork damage
Rear carrier system
Rectify minor paintwork damage with
a touch-up pen before rust forms.
Have more extensive damage or rust
areas repaired by a workshop.
Underbody
Some areas of the vehicle underbody
have a PVC undercoating while other
critical areas have a durable
protective wax coating.
After the underbody is washed, check
the underbody and have it waxed if
necessary.
Bitumen/rubber materials could
damage the PVC coating. Have
underbody work carried out by a
workshop.
Do not clean the coupling ball bar with
a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
Clean the rear carrier system with a
steam-jet or high-pressure jet cleaner
at least once a year.
Operate the rear carrier system once
in a while if not in regular use, in
particular during winter.
Interior care
Interior and upholstery
Only clean the vehicle interior,
including the instrument panel fascia
and panelling, with a dry cloth or
interior cleaner.
Clean the leather upholstery with
clear water and a soft cloth. In case of
heavy soiling, use leather care.
The instrument cluster and the
displays should only be cleaned using
a soft damp cloth. If necessary use a
weak soap solution.
Clean fabric upholstery with a
vacuum cleaner and brush. Remove
stains with an upholstery cleaner.
Clothing fabrics may not be
colourfast. This could cause visible
discolourations, especially on lightcoloured upholstery. Removable
stains and discolourations should be
cleaned as soon as possible.
Clean seat belts with lukewarm water
or interior cleaner.
Caution
Close Velcro fasteners as open
Velcro fasteners on clothing could
damage seat upholstery.
The same applies to clothing with
sharp-edged objects, like zips or
belts or studded jeans.
Vehicle care
Plastic and rubber parts
Plastic and rubber parts can be
cleaned with the same cleaner as
used to clean the body. Use interior
cleaner if necessary. Do not use any
other agent. Avoid solvents and petrol
in particular. Do not use highpressure jet cleaners.

specifications will not be covered by
the warranty.
9 Warning
Operating materials are
hazardous and could be
poisonous. Handle with care. Pay
attention to information given on
the containers.
Engine oil
Engine oil is identified by its quality
and its viscosity. Quality is more
important than viscosity when
selecting which engine oil to use. The
oil quality ensures e.g. engine
cleanliness, wear protection and oil
195
ageing control, whereas viscosity
grade gives information on the oil's
thickness over a temperature range.
Dexos is the newest engine oil quality
that provides optimum protection for
gasoline and diesel engines. If it is
unavailable, engine oils of other listed
qualities have to be used.
Recommendations for gasoline
engines are also valid for Ethanol
(E85) fuelled engines.
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 199.
Topping up engine oil
Engine oils of different manufacturers
and brands can be mixed as long as
they comply with the required engine
oil quality and viscosity.
Use of engine oil with only
ACEA A1/B1 or only A5/B5 quality is
prohibited, since it can cause longterm engine damage under certain
operating conditions.
196
Service and maintenance
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 199.
Additional engine oil additives
The use of additional engine oil
additives could cause damage and
invalidate the warranty.
Engine oil viscosity
The SAE viscosity grade gives
information of the thickness of the oil.
Multigrade oil is indicated by two
figures, e.g. SAE 5W-30. The first
figure, followed by a W, indicates the
low temperature viscosity and the
second figure the high temperature
viscosity.
Select the appropriate viscosity grade
depending on the minimum ambient
temperature 3 199.
All of the recommended viscosity
grades are suitable for high ambient
temperatures.
Coolant and antifreeze
Use only silicate-free long life coolant
(LLC) antifreeze. Consult a
workshop.
The system is factory filled with
coolant designed for excellent
corrosion protection and frost
protection down to approx. -28 °C. In
northern countries with very low
temperatures the factory filled coolant
provides frost protection down to
approx. -37°C. This concentration
should be maintained all year round.
The use of additional coolant
additives that intend to give additional
corrosion protection or seal against
minor leaks can cause function
problems. Liability for consequences
resulting from the use of additional
coolant additives will be rejected.
Brake and clutch fluid
Only use high-performance DOT4+
brake fluid approved for the vehicle.
Consult a workshop.
Over time, brake fluid absorbs
moisture which will reduce braking
effectiveness. The brake fluid should
therefore be replaced at the specified
interval.
Brake fluid should be stored in a
sealed container to avoid water
absorption.
Ensure brake fluid does not become
contaminated.

This vehicle has systems that
transmit and/or receive radio waves
subject to Directive 1999/5/EC.
These systems are in compliance

original Declarations of Conformity
can be obtained on our website.
Declaration of conformity
Vehicle data recording
and privacy
Event data recorders
Data storage modules in the
vehicle
A large number of electronic
components of your vehicle contain
data storage modules temporarily or
permanently storing technical data
about the condition of the vehicle,
events and errors. In general, this
technical information documents the
condition of parts, modules, systems
or the environment:
■ Operating conditions of system
components (e.g. filling levels)
■ Status messages of the vehicle and
its single components (e.g. number
of wheel revolutions / rotational
speed, deceleration, lateral
acceleration)
■ Dysfunctions and defects in
important system components
Customer information
■ Vehicle reactions in particular
driving situations (e.g. inflation of
an airbag, activation of the stability
regulation system)
■ Environmental conditions (e.g.
temperature)
These data are exclusively technical
and help identifying and correcting
errors as well as optimizing vehicle
functions.
Motion profiles indicating travelled
routes cannot be created with these
data.
If services are used (e.g. repair
works, service processes, warranty
cases, quality assurance),
employees of the service network
(manufacturer included) are able to
read out this technical information
from the event and error data storage
modules applying special diagnostic
devices. If required, you will receive
further information at these
workshops. After an error has been
corrected, the data are deleted from
the error storage module or they are
constantly overwritten.
When using the vehicle, situations
may occur in which these technical
data related to other information
(accident report, damages on the
vehicle, witness statements etc.) may
be associated with a specific person possibly with the assistance of an
expert.
Additional functions contractually
agreed upon with the client (e.g.
vehicle location in emergency cases)
allow the transmission of particular
vehicle data from the vehicle.
209
Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID)
RFID technology is used in some
vehicles for functions such as tyre
pressure monitoring and ignition
system security. It is also used in
connection with conveniences such
as radio remote controls for door
locking/unlocking and starting, and invehicle transmitters for garage door
openers. RFID technology in
Vauxhall vehicles does not use or
record personal information or link
with any other Vauxhall system
containing personal information.
