Alarm siren with integrated
battery
The alarm siren monitors the onboard voltage network and triggers an
alarm if this network is manipulated
(e.g. if the vehicle's battery is
disconnected by unauthorised
persons). The alarm siren has its own
power supply and is therefore not
dependent on the vehicle's battery.
If the vehicle's battery is to be
disconnected (e.g. for maintenance
work), the alarm siren must be
deactivated as follows: switch the
ignition on then off, then disconnect
the vehicle's battery within 15
seconds.

Child restraints
Child restraint systems
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.
Selecting the right system
Children should travel facing
backwards in the vehicle, until as old
as possible. It is appropriate to
change the system when the child's
head can no longer be properly
supported at eye height. The child's
cervical vertebrae are still very weak
and in an accident they suffer less
stress in the semi-prone rearward
position than when sitting upright.
Children under 12 years or under 150
cm (5 ft) tall should only travel in an
appropriate child restraint system.
61
Never hold a child whilst travelling in
the vehicle. The child will become too
heavy to be held in the event of
a collision.
When transporting children, use the
child restraint systems suitable for the
child's weight.
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.
Only allow children to enter and exit
the vehicle at 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.
Notice
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.

■ The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (see identification
plate 3 198) and the EC kerb
weight.
To calculate the EC kerb weight,
enter the data for your vehicle in the
Weights table on page 3 3.
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.
The permissible roof load is 75 kg
and 100 kg for vehicles with roof
railing. The roof load is the
combined weight of the roof rack
and the load.

Driving hints
Starting and operating
Control of the vehicle
New vehicle running-In
Never coast with engine not
running
Do not brake unnecessarily hard for
the first few journeys.
During the first drive, smoke may
occur because of wax and oil
evaporating off the exhaust system.
Park the vehicle in the open for
a while after the first drive and avoid
inhaling the fumes.
Fuel and engine oil consumption may
be higher during the running-in
period.
Many systems will not function in this
situation (e.g. brake servo unit, power
steering). Driving in this manner is
a danger to yourself and others.
Pedals
To ensure the pedal travel is
uninhibited, there must be no mats in
the area of the pedals.

Overrun cut-off
The fuel supply is automatically cut off
during overrun, i.e. when the vehicle
is driven with a gear engaged but
accelerator is released.
Parking
■ Do not park the vehicle on an easily
ignitable surface. The high
temperature of the exhaust system
could ignite the surface.
■ Always apply parking brake without
pressing release button. Apply as
firmly as possible on downhill or
uphill slopes. Depress the foot
brake at same time to reduce
operating force.
■ Switch off the engine and ignition.
Turn the steering wheel until the

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.
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. The filter
is cleaned by burning off the soot
particles at high temperature. This
process takes place automatically
under set driving conditions and may
take up to 25 minutes. Fuel
128
Driving and operating
consumption may be higher during
this period. The emission of smells
and smoke during this process is
normal.
Stopping the journey or switching off
the engine during cleaning is not
recommended.
Under certain driving conditions, e.g.
short distances, the system cannot
clean itself automatically.
If the filter requires cleaning and
previous driving conditions did not
enable automatic cleaning, control
indicator ! flashes. Continue driving,
keeping engine speed above 2000
revolutions per minute. Shift down if
necessary. Diesel particle filter
cleaning is then started.
Caution
If the cleaning process is
interrupted more than once, there
is a great risk of provoking severe
engine damage.
Cleaning takes place quickest at high
engine speeds and loads.
The control indicator ! extinguishes
as soon as the self-cleaning
operation is complete.
Catalytic converter
The catalytic converter reduces the
amount of harmful substances in the
exhaust gases.
Driving and operating
Caution
Fuel grades other than those listed
on pages 3 144, 3 199 could

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 you depress the
brake pedal firmly. You need to use
considerably more force 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 88.
Antilock brake system
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
Driving and operating
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.

standards) may be used.
Do not use marine diesel oils, heating
oils or entirely or partially plant-based
diesel fuels, such as rape seed oil or
bio diesel, Aquazole and similar
diesel-water emulsions. Diesel fuels
must not be diluted with fuels for
petrol engines.
The flow and filterability of diesel fuel
are temperature-dependent. When
temperatures are low, refuel with
diesel fuel with guaranteed winter
properties.
Fuel for natural gas operation
Use natural gas with a methane
content of approx. 78 - 99 %. L-gas
(low) has approx. 78 - 87 % and H-gas
(high) has approx. 87 - 99 %. Biogas
with the same methane content can

vehicles have special fuel filler caps.
Fuel consumption - CO2Emissions
The determination of fuel
consumption is regulated by
European directive 80/1268/EEC
(latest edition 2004/3/EC).
The directive is oriented to actual
driving practices: Urban driving is
rated at approx. 1/3 and extra urban
driving with approx. 2/3. Cold starts
and acceleration phases are also
taken into consideration.
The specification of CO2 emission is
also a constituent of the directive.
The figures given must not be taken
as a guarantee for the actual fuel
consumption of a particular vehicle.
Furthermore, fuel consumption is
dependent on personal driving style
as well as road and traffic conditions.
All values are based on the EU base
model with standard equipment.
The calculation of fuel consumption
takes into account the vehicle's kerb
weight, ascertained in accordance
with the regulations. Optional
equipment may result in slightly
higher fuel consumption and CO2
emission levels and a lower maximum
speed.

General information
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.
Fitting of towing equipment could
cover the opening of the towing eye.
If this is the case use the coupling ball
bar for towing. Always keep the
coupling ball bar in the vehicle.
Installation dimensions of factoryfitted towing equipment 3 211.
Driving characteristics and
towing tips
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.
Driving and operating
For trailers with low driving stability
and trailers with a permitted gross
vehicle weight of more than 1300 kg
a speed of 50 mph must not be
exceeded; the use of a stabiliser is
recommended.
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 3 208.
Trailer towing
Trailer loads
The permissible trailer loads are
vehicle and engine-dependent
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.
The permissible trailer loads are
specified in the vehicle documents. In
general, they are valid for gradients
up to max. 12 %
The permitted trailer load applies up
to the specified incline and up to an
altitude of 3300 ft 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 3300 ft 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.
147
The maximum permissible vertical
coupling load (75 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.
Rear axle load
When the trailer is coupled and the
towing vehicle fully loaded, the
permissible rear axle load (see
identification plate or vehicle
documents) may be exceeded by 90
kg and the gross vehicle weight rating
by 75 kg. If the permissible rear axle
load is exceeded, a maximum speed
of 62 mph applies.
Towing equipment
Caution
When operating without a trailer,
remove the coupling ball bar.
148
Driving and operating
Stowage of coupling ball bar
The pouch with the coupling ball bar
is held in place with a rubber strap.

Vehicle care
Wheels and tyres
Tyre condition, wheel condition
Drive over edges slowly and at right
angles if possible. Driving over sharp
edges can cause tyre and wheel
damage. Do not trap tyres on the kerb
when parking.
Regularly check the wheels for
damage. Seek the assistance of
a workshop in the event of damage or
unusual wear.
Tyres
Tyres of size 225/45 R 17 are only
permitted if the vehicle is equipped
with electronic stability program.
Winter tyres
Winter tyres improve driving safety at
temperatures below 7 °C and should
therefore be fitted on all wheels.
Tyres of size 225/40 R 18, 225/40 ZR
18 and 235/35 R 19 must not be used
as winter tyres.
Winter tyres may only be used on the
Zafira VXR on special alloy wheels
approved by Vauxhall.
Run-flat winter tyres may only be
used on factory approved alloy
wheels.
In accordance with country-specific
regulations, affix the speed sticker in
the driver's field of view.
Run-flat tyres
Run-flat tyres have reinforced, selfsupporting sidewalls, which ensure
that the tyres always have a certain
amount of driveability, even when
there is no pressure.
Run-flat tyres are only permitted on
vehicles with electronic stability
program and tyre pressure monitoring
system or deflation detection system.
Caution
Check tyre pressures regularly
even if run-flat tyres are fitted.
171
Depending on tyre manufacturer, runflat tyres can be identified from
a marking on the tyre wall. E.g.
ROF = RunonFlat for Goodyear or
SSR = Self Supporting Runflat Tyre
for Continental.
Use of run-flat tyres is only permitted
in combination with factory approved
alloy wheels.
Do not use a tyre repair kit.
The ECO tyre pressure must not be
used.
Run-flat tyres must not be combined
with standard tyres.
If converting to standard tyres, note
that the vehicle is not equipped with
a spare wheel or tyre repair kit.
Driving with a damaged tyre
A loss in tyre pressure is indicated by
the tyre pressure monitoring system
or the deflation detection system.
If a tyre has no pressure, continued
driving is possible
■ at a speed of max. 50 mph
■ up to a distance of 50 miles
172
Vehicle care
9 Warning
The vehicle will be more difficult to
steer and handle. Braking
distance will be longer.
Adapt driving style and speed to
the changed conditions.
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.
Tyre designations
E.g. 195/65 R 15 91 H
195 = Tyre width, mm
65 = Cross-section ratio (tyre
height to tyre width), %
R
= Belt type: Radial
RF = Type: RunFlat
15 = Wheel diameter, inches
91 = Load index e.g. 91 is
equivalent to 618 kg
H
= Speed code letter
Speed code letter:
Q = up to 100 mph
S = up to 112 mph
T = up to 118 mph
H = up to 130 mph
V = up to 150 mph
W = up to 168 mph
Remove the valve cap key from the
fuel filler flap and use it to unscrew the
valve cap.
On vehicles with tyre pressure
monitoring system, screw the adapter
to the valve.
The tyre pressure data 3 208 refer to
cold tyres. It applies to summer and
winter tyres.
Always inflate the spare wheel to the
pressure specified for full load.
The ECO tyre pressure serves to
achieve the smallest amount of fuel
consumption possible. It must not be
used with run-flat tyres.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and
fuel economy and will increase tyre
wear.
Vehicle care
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.
Tyre pressure monitoring
system
The tyre pressure monitoring system
continually checks the pressure of all
four wheels when vehicle speed
exceeds a certain limit.
All wheels must be equipped with
pressure sensors and the tyres must
have the prescribed pressure.
Otherwise, the tyre pressure will be
monitored by the deflation detection
system 3 173.
The current tyre pressures can be
shown in the Info-Display 3 105.
Vehicle messages, tyre pressure
3 100.
Control indicator w 3 89.
If a complete set of wheels without
sensors is mounted (e.g. four winter
tyres), no error message will be
displayed. The tyre pressure
monitoring system is not operational.
Retrofitting of sensors is possible.
The use of commercially available
liquid tyre repair kits can impair the
function of the system. Factory
approved systems can be used.
External high-power radio equipment
could disrupt the tyre pressure
monitoring system.
System initialisation
173
After a wheel change, the system
must be initialised: inflate the tyres to
the prescribed pressure, switch on
the ignition, press and hold the DDS
button for approx. 4 seconds, control
indicator w flashes three times.
Tyre deflation detection
system
The tyre deflation detection system
continually checks the rotation speed
of all four tyres.
If a tyre loses pressure the control
indicator w illuminates red. Stop
immediately and check tyre pressure.
Control indicator w 3 89.

System initialisation
If tyres of a different size than those
fitted at the factory are used, it may be
necessary to reprogram the
speedometer and make other vehicle
modifications.
After converting to a different tyre
size, have the label with tyre
pressures replaced.
9 Warning
After tyre pressure correction or
wheel change, the system must be
initialised: Switch on the ignition,
press and hold the DDS button for
approx. 4 seconds, control indicator
w flashes three times.
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).
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.
Tyres age, even if they are not used.
We recommend tyre replacement
every 6 years.
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheels
may lead to accidents and will
invalidate the vehicle type
approval.
Wheel covers
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.
If the wheel covers and tyres used are
not factory approved, the tyres must
not have a rim protection ridge.
Vehicle care
Wheel covers must not impair brake
cooling.
Remove the wheel covers if tyre
chains are to be installed.
Always use fine mesh chains that add
no more than 10 mm to the tyre tread
and the inboard sides (including chain
lock).
9 Warning
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel
covers could lead to sudden
pressure loss and thereby
accidents.
Tyre chains

Vehicle care
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 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.
If using a car wash, comply with the
car wash manufacturer's instructions.
The windscreen wipers 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.
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.
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.
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.
Vehicle care
Clean smearing wiper blades with
a soft cloth and window cleaner.
Moonroof
Never clean with solvents or abrasive
agents, fuels, aggressive media (e.g.
paint cleaner, acetone-containing
solutions etc.), acidic or highly
alkaline media or abrasive pads. Do
not apply wax or polishing agents to
the middle part of the moonroof.
Wheels and tyres
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.
Paintwork damage
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.
Before and after winter, wash the
underbody and have the protective
wax coating checked.
Engine compartment
Areas of the engine compartment that
are painted in the same colour as the
vehicle must be looked after like any
other painted surface.
It is advisable to wash the engine
compartment before and after winter
and preserve it with wax. Protect the
alternator and brake fluid reservoir
with plastic sheets before washing
the engine.
187
When washing the engine with
a steam-jet cleaner, do not direct the
steam jet towards components of the
antilock brake system, air
conditioning system or the belt drive
and its components.
After an engine wash, have all engine
room components preserved
thoroughly by a workshop using
protective wax.
Do not use high-pressure jet
cleaners.
Towing equipment
Do not clean the coupling ball bar with
a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
Interior care
Interior and upholstery
Only clean the vehicle interior,
including the instrument panel fascia
and panelling, with a dry cloth or
interior cleaner.
The instrument panel should only be
cleaned using a soft damp cloth.
188
Vehicle care
Clean fabric upholstery with
a vacuum cleaner and brush.
Remove stains with an upholstery
cleaner.
Clean seat belts with lukewarm water
or interior cleaner.
Caution
Close Velcro fasteners as open
Velcro fasteners on clothing could
damage seat upholstery.
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.

Additional operations +
Additional operations are not required
every service but can be performed in
conjunction with a regular service.
Time allowances for such work are
not included in the scope of regular
services and will be charged for
additionally. It is more economic if
these operations are performed as
part of a scheduled service than
having them performed separately.
Extreme operating conditions o
Extreme operating conditions are
given when at least one of the
following occurs frequently:
■ cold starts,
■ stop and go,
■ trailer towing,
■ gradients and/or high altitudes,
■ poor road surfaces,
■ sand and dust,
■ extreme temperature fluctuations.
Police vehicles, taxis and driving
school vehicles are also classified as
operating under extreme conditions.
Under extreme operating conditions,
it may be necessary to have certain
scheduled service work done more
frequently than the scheduled
intervals.
Seek technical advice on the
servicing requirements dependent on
the specific operating conditions.

the highest quality available at the
moment. If it is unavailable, engine
oils of other listed qualities have to be
used.
Use of ACEA A1/B1 and A5/B5
engine oil is expressly forbidden,
since they can cause long-term
engine damage under certain
operating conditions.

Engine oil additives
The use of engine oil additives could
cause damage and invalidate the
warranty.
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).
If engine oil of the required quality is
not available, a maximum of 1 litre of
ACEA A3/B4 or A3/B3 grade may be
used (only once between each oil
change). The viscosity should be of
the correct rating.
Engine oil viscosity
Use only engine oil viscosities SAE
0W-30, 0W-40, 5W-30 or 5W-40.
The SAE viscosity rating defines the
ability of an oil to flow. When cold, oil
is more viscous than when hot.
Multigrade oil is indicated by two
figures. The first figure, followed by
a W, indicates low temperature
viscosity and the second figure the
high temperature viscosity.
Coolant and antifreeze
Use only silicate-free long life coolant
(LLC) antifreeze.
The system is factory filled with
coolant designed for frost protection
down to approx. -28 °C. Maintain
a sufficient concentration of
antifreeze.
Coolant additives intended to give
additional corrosion protection or seal
against minor leaks can cause
function problems. Liability for
consequences resulting from the use
of coolant additives will be rejected.
Brake and clutch fluid
Only use DOT4 brake fluid.
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.

The identification plate is located on
the front right door frame.
The combined total of front and rear
axle loads must not exceed the
permissible gross vehicle weight. For
example, if the front axle is bearing its
maximum permissible load, the rear
axle can only bear a load that is equal
to the gross vehicle weight minus the
front axle load.

Vehicle data recording
and privacy
Event data recorders
The vehicle has a number of
sophisticated systems that monitor
and control several vehicle data.
Some data may be stored during
regular operation to facilitate repair of
detected malfunctions, other data is
stored only in a crash or near crash
event by systems commonly called
event data recorders (EDR).
The systems may record data about
the condition of the vehicle and how it
was operated (e.g. engine speed,
brake application, seat belt usage).
To read this data special equipment
and access to the vehicle is required.
This will take place when the vehicle
is serviced in a workshop. Some data
is electronically fed into GM global
diagnostic systems. The
manufacturer will not access
information about a crash event or
share it with others except
■ with the consent of the vehicle
owner or, if the vehicle is leased,
with the consent of the lessee,
■ in response to an official request of
police or similar government office,
■ as part of the manufacturer's
defense in case of legal
proceedings,
■ as required by law.
In addition, the manufacturer may use
the collected or received data
■ for the manufacturer's research
needs,
■ to make it available for research
needs where appropriate
confidentiality is maintained and
need is shown,
■ to share summary data which is not
tied to a specific vehicle with other
organisations for research
purposes.
