Seat Belt
Measure
Precaution
To protect the passenger, the entire
passenger must correctly use seatbelt
during driving. One seatbelt for only one
person, and those children under 6 years
old are not suitable to use seatbelt, and
you should assembly proper child seat or
assistant cushion for your child.
!Notice
Passengers may get hurt in a collision or
emergent stop, so they must use seatbelt
at anytime. Do not use one belt by several
people. Do not put anything hard or
fragile in the pocket or clothes clinging to
the seatbelt. Misusage of the seatbelt will
cause serious damage. Do not change the
seatbelt or attach any equipment which
will affect the employment of the seatbelt.
The worn seatbelt cannot be used any
more which will probably affect the
safety of the peop le.
When using a seatbelt, please use it and
maintain the belt and child protection
system with correct method in order to
decrease the damage to the peop le in a
collision or emergent stop.
!Notice
M isusage of the seatbelt may cause
damage or even death to people. The
seatbelt should be firm and the seat
backrest should be adjusted to vertical.
Do not lean on the backrest when driving
the car. Do not use it if the belt twisted.
Do not tie the belt cross down the arm
which should be at the middle of the
shoulder, and also do not wrap it around
the head or neck. Tie it clinging to the
buttocks but not waist. If the seatbelt tied
too loosely, it will increase the rate of
hurt to people because the body will slide
under a loose belt. The loose button of
the seat belt should face outside. Insert
the pin of the belt into the appointed
connection lock. Do not put anything at
the shield board hatch of the seatbelt to
prevent it from getting stuck. If it gets
stuck, the only way is to entangle the
entire belt into the reel and then pull the
ideal length out according to the need.
Maintenance of the Seat
Belt
The seat belt should be maintained clean
and dry, avoiding any pollution by
polishing composition, oil, chemical,
especially by the acid of the accumulator.
Please wash with litmusless soap. Do not
blanch or dye the belt which will
probably do harm to the belt. Prevent the
seat belt from any sharp-edged things.
Check the belt regularly for any damage
and replace those worn ones in time. The
over strained belt should be replaced after
an accident. Chery suggests replacing all
the components of the seatbelt after a
collision. But after a slight collision, if
the Chery Service Station does not check
out any damage, and all the components
can work normally, there is no need to
replace. If there is any damage or false
with the seat belt and its components
which has not been used in an accident,
they also need to be tested and replaced if
necessary.
20
Notices Before Drive
!Notice
The worn seat belt may
cause serious damage, so check the
seat belt components regularly.
After a collis ion, you must take all
the seat belt components to the
Chery Service Station for a check
and replace them according to the
need. If the belt has been damaged
or polluted, it must be replaced.
After a serious collision, the seat
belt components must be replaced
no matter there is evident damage
or not. If the seat belt is not suitable,
it will arouse much more serious
damage. Do not change seatbelt at
will.
For pregnant woman
Suggest the pregnant woman to refer to
the doctors for the usage before using the
seatbelt.
!Notice
In order to avoid any damage to the
pregnant woman and the infant during the
travel, please use “three points on the
cross” connected seatbelt if possible and
tie it as low as possible to cross the entire
pregnant position (refer to the doctor).
Children
System
Protection
Be sure to use proper children protection
system when bringing any infants or
children.
The children protection system should be
assembled on the seat according to the
height and weight of the child.
Status shows that proper children
protection system will be safer if it is
assembled on the back seat rather than
the front seat.
!Notice
Infants and children should be kept in the
children protection system. Do not
assemble
the
backward
children
protection system on the front seat with
air bag.
Please assemble the children protection
system on the back seat as possible as
you can. If it must be assembled on the
front passenger seat, the seat should be
adjusted back as possible.
!Notice

Assemble the children protection
system according to the instruction
provided by the manufacturer.

Tie is firmly or remove it when
there is no use.

Do not hold your child in arm when
riding on the car.
If the children protection system is too
small for your child, just let him or her sit
on the back seat and tie up the seat belt. If
the child sit at the position with crossed
seat belt, and the belt is close to his or her
face or neck, you should move the child
to the middle, that is lean to the inner part
of the belt, and put your child at a place
without crossed seat belt if possible.
If the children protection system is
assembled on the front seat, child will
probably be seriously hurt when the air

spring-plugged seat belt is coop erated
well, the body is permitted to move freely
during a smooth running.
There is a sensitive reel on the seat belt
which is used to lock the seat belt in
violent acceleration and deceleration.
Please do not test the lock of the seat belt
by rush forward forcibly. This kind of
seat belt does not need to adjust the
length which will automatically adjust
according to the movement of the
passenger. But it will automatically lock
to limit the movement of the body of the
passenger in a sudden collision or
impulsion.
!Notice
If it gets stuck, the only way is to
entangle the entire belt into the reel and
then pull the ideal length out according to
the need.

Cab air bag
The driver air bag is assembled at the
central flange of the steering wheel. The
air bag will charge and expand in several
seconds after collision and form a safe air
cushion for the driver. The air bag can
expand with enough power and speed, so
it is very important to adjust the driver
seat and backrest properly. Adjust the
position of the seat that the hands can
easily touch the steering wheel only in a
small angle.

In some cars, the air bag is assembled at
the side of the passenger or on the top of
the toolbox. This air bag is so big that it
can charge and expand with enough
power. If the front passenger sit in
improper position or does not tie the seat
belt correctly, he or she will probably be
seriously injured by the air bag. So the
passenger should move the seat back and
sit behind as possible.
!Notice
Children will probably be seriously
injured by the air bag in an accident. If
you assemble the children protection
system at the front seat, it will be bumped

Suggestion on
Economized operation
The economy of fuel depends on your
operation. The way you drive, the place
and the time you drive will influence the
distance that 1 L fuel can drive.
For best fuel economy:

Start smoot hly and accelerate
slowly.

Adjust the engine properly.

Do not leave the engine running in
idle.

Use air conditioner if it is really
needed (if there is the equipment).

Decelerate when driving on an
accidented road.

Keep the air pressure in the tire
with standard for the best fuel

economy and prolong the life of the
tire.
Keep certain distance with other
cars to avoid emergency brake so as
to depress the wear and tear of the
brake patch and improve the fuel
economy(because there is no need
for additional fuel to accelerate).
Do not load unnecessary goods to
add the weight.
Do not leave your feet on the pedal
which will cause unnecessary worn
or even damage the brake and
increase the consume of fuel.
Keep the condition when the car
left the factory.
Notice the exhaust gas of the engine
(carbon monoxide)
Do not inhale the exhaust gas of the
engine which is harmful, or you
will examinate or even die with
excessive gas.
Whenever you suspect that there is
exhaust gas entering the car, go to the
Chery Service Station immediately for a
check. If you have to drive under this
condition, please open all the windows
completely.
To prevent the gas from entering the car,
please check the exhaust system and body
regularly.

Lift the car and check when
replacing the oil.

Notice the change of the sound of
exhaust system.

Do not let the exhaust system,
chassis or the tail be damaged or
corroded.

Notice at the same time:

Do not start the engine in a narrow
place such as garage or other closed
places.

conditioner to outer circulate mode
and let the fresh air into the car, and
set the blower to high speed
position.
Do not stay in a car with engine
running idle for a long time, neither
leave the children in it.
Avoid the tail door open during a
driving because the exhaust gas
might get into the car. If the tail
door has to be opened, please close
all the windows. Set the conditioner
to outer circulate mode and let the

Wheel and tire
The tires fitted by the manufacturer
match the chassis and achieve op timum
running comfort and security.Before
exchanging other diverse type tires or
wheels, consult the server guested by
Chery Automobile to obtain technical
support. The using of improper tires or
wheel may cause an accident.
!Notice
The wrong tire size will gave rise to
contradiction between tires and body .If
you replace 145 / 65 RB tires with 155 /
65 RB ones; you need to alter steering
device components. Whenever replace
original type tires with other type ones,
you should consult chery automobile
guest service station.
Tire inflation
M easure tire pressure with the precise tire
gauge under low temperature..The
115
specified tire pressure is necessary for
driving comfort, traveling security and
tire life lengthening. Check the pressure
of tires (including wheel spare wheel)
every other 14 days or before
long-distance travel.

The air pressure may drop below the
specified minimum value and the
pressure will not descend when tires heat.
After air pressure examination, tighten up
the valve cap.
If the tire pressure do not comply with the
provisions, tire abrasion will be
accelerated and inf luence secur ity,
automobile operability, comfort and fuel
oil fuel oil efficiency. Too low air
pressure will give rise to tire radiation
and internal loss and result in tire crack
and tire flat during high-speed driving.
Undiscovered damage on the tire cannot
be eliminated by inflation pressure
adjustment.
Tire conditionThe tire shall not press on
the uneven side at parking. Driving on
sharp edge could bring about tire hidden
defect, which probably bring about the
danger of deflation. Drive on the rough
road with the appropriate angle slowly if
possible. Termly search tire damage
which can give rise to tire burst, such as
foreign impuritie, deflation, laceration,
fissures and crossrange salient. And
search hud damage. If there occurs
damage or inordinate wear, seek help
from Chery automobile guest service
station
Service and Maintenance
Inordinate wear is usually caused by the
following causes including tire pressure
in nonconformity with the provisions, no
periodic tire alternation, incorrect wheel
alignment, tire unbalance, emergent
braking or bad driving habit.
Tread wear indicator
Termly inspect tread pattern depth in
order to assist you in judging when to
replace the tire. There is bu ilt-in tire tread
wear indicator on the tire. When the tire
tread is 1.6 mm thick or less thicker, the
indicator will occur between the tread
patterns, and the position of the wear
indicator is displayed by longitudinal
indicator on the tire. Due to security
consideration, replace the tire if its tread
abrasion depth is 2~3 mm. Replace tires
in coup le, Select the correct fixing
sequence. Guarantee identical tire sizes,
identical type and identical technology of
the two tires on the same axle shaft and
the identical tread p atterns.
Col
d enduring tire
If using cold enduring tire, 4 tires must be
assembled at the same time.Driving speed
!Notice
Tire mixed using or inferior brand using
can make vehicle out of control and the
using of various sizes will harm
automobiles. Guarantee the same sizes
and type of the entire wheel. Use
specified tire by original factory. It is
extremely risky to use wear tire, junk tire
or damaged tire, even going to the length
of an accident If the following
circumstances occur, including tire tread
should not exceed the specified highest
speed of a vehicle by tire manufacturer.
Using cold enduring tire must conform to
tire pressure specified by the tire
abrasion indicator exposure or tire
damage, please replace the tire. The used
tire is harmful to health and environments
and should not be disposed as house
garbage. It should be cleaned up with
locally specified security cleaning

environments such as water , snow , ice
and grit will reduce towing force ,make
vehicle out of control, so under such
circumstances, driving should be slow.
Tire alternation
The service conditions of front and rear
wheel are different, so the abrasion status
is different too. It depends mainly on
running road surface, driving habit and so
on. For the front wheels abrase more
rapidly than the back wheels, in order to
avoid tire wear irregularity and lengthen
tire life , replace the tires ,adjust tire air

Snow chain
According to the road location or mode,
alter tire chain regulation and inspect the
chain before installation. When install
chain on the tires, please necessarily
carefully observe the provisions by the
chain manufacturer. Before chain
installation, please take away wheel
housing in case that the chain scratches
the wheel housing. Firmly fix the chain
on the front tires. It is advisable that it not
be used on the rear wheel. After running

External maintenance and
cleaning of automobile
External lacquered surface
Lacquering brings esthetic app earance
and viability to automobile.
The best way of lacquered surface
maintenance is to clean frequently to
keep lacquered p arts neat, use tepid water
or cold water for washing rather than hot
water or under the direct irradiation of
sunshine, soap or chemical cleaners with
high concentration are not permitted to
use, all the cleaning agents have to be
instantly flushed away from the surface,
none of which could remain on surface.
The Chery automobile, designated for
normal environment conditions, can
endure the influence of normal natural
environment, whereas in abnormal
conditions like high-pressure car flushing
circumstance the water will go into the
inner part of car.
Burnishing and waxing of car body
Regular burnishing and waxing of car
body are suggested to remove sediments
These sediments may not be flushed
away completely by quick washing,
127
on the surface. Chery Service Station
provides relevant qualified products.
Regular water cleaning should be kept to
protect the glossiness of external metal
components. Special care should be taken
to protect plumbiferous luster.
In order to avoid plumbiferous luster
spoilage, inscriptive grinding materials,
water vapour or corrosive soap are not
permitted for cleaning, all the bright
metal components are suggested to daub
paraffin. Leaden wheels and wheel disks
have to be washed to keep tidy and avoid
contact with road dust or saliferous
objects, the original status of wheels and
wheel disks should be protected and
regular cleaning is suggested, corrosive
cleaning agents or brushes are not
permitted to use to avoid surface coating
spoilage
Anticorrosion
Your automobile is designated according
to the requirement of anticorrosion; most
components of vehicles have applied
therefore cleaning agents are required.
Damages to lacquering surfaces must be
special substances and protective coating
to keep nice appearance, strength and
reliable operation. Some parts (such as
the special components located in the
engine room and chassis) are unexposed
to the air, thus the rusty stain will not
influence their reliabilities, and measures
of anticorrosion are unnecessary to take
on t hese parts.
Latten spoilage
If your vehicle is damaged, repair and
replacing of body panels need to be done,
suitable anticorrosive materials should be
guaranteed on the repaired or replaced
parts of fixed automobile body to resume
anticorrosion.
Impurity sediment
If impurities such as Calcium chloride
and other salts, ice flux, pavement tar,
resin, ordure of birds, chemicals from
industry and others remain on the
lacquering surface, the surface coating
would be damaged.
avoided when using chemical cleaning
agents.
Automobile maintenance
Surface coating spoilage
Any fissures or deep scratches on the
surface coating should be immediately
patched, or the exposed metal will
instantly get stained, if this continues
more repair fees may be spent. Scratches
could be patched with patching materials;
extensive coating damages have to be
patched in Chery Service Station.
Chassis maintenance
Corrodent materials and dust will build
up in the chassis, more of which will
app ear in the chassis components like
transport pipelines, car frame, soleplate
and the air exhaust system without
cleaning, these objects should be flushed
away from chassis at least every spring,
especially those areas where mud and
other impurities may accumulate should
be cleaned, please go to Chery Service
Station to make the maintenance when
necessary.
!Attention
Damages caused by impurity sediment or
the range of warranty of quality does not
cover stone blocks.
Fuel and its addition
Fuel oil
Normal gasoline: the value of octane is
not less than 93 # (GB17930 - 1999
unleaded motor gasoline).
Fuel oil additives
Vehicle driving performance, engine
performance and service life are directly
influenced by the quality of fuel oil,
whereas the additives could improve the
performances above, therefore, our
company suggests you adopt fuel oil with
additives in high quality. If this could not
be done temporarily,
or
when
malfunctions such as starting difficulty,
unstable idling or power coastdown in
engine appear, adequate additives should
be added in fuel oil addition. The Fuel oil
additives play the part of engine
anticorrosion and fouling, oil supply
system cleaning, moreover, they can
prevent throttle body from icing under the
temperature between 0-15℃.
Fuel oil additives approved by our
company are supplied in Chery Service
Station, working staff in the station is
expert at method of application and the
processing method of engine fouling, and
they are ready to help you.
Engine oil
Special top engine oil has filled before
automobile leaves. Except for regions in
particular and cold climate, it can b e used
as all-purpose oil all year round.
128
Automobile maintenance
Because the mobile oil in high quality is
the prerequisite of ensuring engine
trouble free running and durability
prolonging, the special used top mobile
oil specified by Chery have to apply in
mobile oil addition or replacing
circumstances.
In respect that there are varieties of
mobile oil served in the market, and the
qualities of which vary a lot, it is
emphasized that the mobile oil can only
be chosen from the ones provided by this
specification. The tag numbers of mobile
oil illustrated in this page can also be
found from the vessel label. These oils
will mix naturally in oil sup plement.
129
Viscosity and classification descriptions
The viscosity levels must be chosen
pursuant to the range shown in the graphs.
It is unnecessary to replace the engine oil
if the temperature exceeds the provided
range only in short time.

SPECIAL CAUTION:
Engine oil checking procedures
Ensure engine oil at specified level and
right lubrication. Inspect oil level because
oil will consume when engine runs.
Vehicle must be stopp ed at level surface
when checking. Wait several minut es
when checking oil level ensuring oil
return oil pan. If engine is cold, it will
take a long time for oil returning.
Checking Oil Level: remove oil dipstick
and clean with discottony cloth, then
insert dipstick to full. Remove dipstick
and inspect if oil is between M IN and
MAX scale.
For engine damage caused by inadequate
oil, manufacturer does not effect
warranty.
Replacing engine oil and oil filter
Replace engine oil up on t ime and m ileage
interval because oil may also deteriorate
with time besides engine running.
Under special conditions as frequent cold
starting and on-off switching in
municipal road surface, engine oil and oil
filter replacing interval shall shorten
accordingly
(comparing
with
recommended service schedu le)
Replace oil filter when replace oil.
Check if dipstick is dirty.
If oil level is under M IN scale, add oil to
ensure oil level reaches M AX scale. Oil
should not surpass MAX scale, otherwise
oil consumption will increase which will
foul spark park and cause carbon deposit.
When add oil, use same brand and grade
oil with previous.
!Notice
Avoid frequent touch with engine oil;
otherwise skin illness will be caused.
Clean thoroughly after touching oil. Used
oil should be kept away from children.
Inadequate and over oil will cause engine
damage. Inspect engine oil timely and
frequently. Add oil as necessary. DO
NOT over add engine oil.

Wheel and tire
The tires fitted by the manufacturer
match the chassis and achieve op timum
running comfort and security.Before
exchanging other diverse type tires or
wheels, consult the server guested by
Chery Automobile to obtain technical
support. The using of improper tires or
wheel may cause an accident.
!Notice
The wrong tire size will gave rise to
contradiction between tires and body .If
you replace 145 / 65 RB tires with 155 /
65 RB ones; you need to alter steering
device components. Whenever replace
original type tires with other type ones,
you should consult chery automobile
guest service station.
Tire inflation
M easure tire pressure with the precise tire
gauge under low temperature..The
153
specified tire pressure is necessary for
driving comfort, traveling security and
tire life lengthening. Check the pressure
of tires (including wheel spare wheel)
every other 14 days or before

The air pressure may drop below the
specified minimum value and the
pressure will not descend when tires heat.
After air pressure examination, tighten up
the valve cap.
If the tire pressure do not comply with the
provisions, tire abrasion will be
accelerated and inf luence secur ity,
automobile operability, comfort and fuel
oil fuel oil efficiency. Too low air
pressure will give rise to tire radiation
and internal loss and result in tire crack
and tire flat during high-speed driving.
Undiscovered damage on the tire cannot
be eliminated by inflation pressure
adjustment.
Tire conditionThe tire shall not press on
the uneven side at parking. Driving on
sharp edge could bring about tire hidden
defect, which probably bring about the
danger of deflation. Drive on the rough
road with the appropriate angle slowly if
possible. Termly search tire damage
which can give rise to tire burst, such as
foreign impuritie, deflation, laceration,
fissures and crossrange salient. And
search hud damage. If there occurs
damage or inordinate wear, seek help
from Chery automobile guest service
station
Service and Maintenance
Inordinate wear is usually caused by the
following causes including tire pressure
in nonconformity with the provisions, no
periodic tire alternation, incorrect wheel
alignment, tire unbalance, emergent
braking or bad driving habit.
Tread wear indicator
Termly inspect tread pattern depth in
order to assist you in judging when to
replace the tire. There is bu ilt-in tire tread
wear indicator on the tire. When the tire
tread is 1.6 mm thick or less thicker, the
indicator will occur between the tread
patterns, and the position of the wear
indicator is displayed by longitudinal
indicator on the tire. Due to security
consideration, replace the tire if its tread
abrasion depth is 2~3 mm. Replace tires
in coup le, Select the correct fixing
sequence. Guarantee identical tire sizes,
identical type and identical technology of
the two tires on the same axle shaft and
the identical tread p atterns.
!Notice
Tire mixed using or inferior brand using
can make vehicle out of control and the
using of various sizes will harm
automobiles. Guarantee the same sizes
and type of the entire wheel. Use
specified tire by original factory. It is
extremely risky to use wear tire, junk tire
or damaged tire, even going to the length
of an accident If the following
circumstances occur, including tire tread
abrasion indicator exposure or tire
damage, please replace the tire. The used
tire is harmful to health and environments
and should not be disposed as house
garbage. It should be cleaned up with
locally specified security cleaning
mechanism
The
wicked
road
environments such as water , snow , ice
and grit will reduce towing force ,make
vehicle out of control, so under such
circumstances, driving should be slow.
Tire alternation
The service conditions of front and rear
wheel are different, so the abrasion status
is different too. It depends mainly on
running road surface, driving habit and so
on. For the front wheels abrade more
rapidly than the back wheels, in order to
avoid tire wear irregularity and lengthen
tire life , replace the tires ,adjust tire air
pressure and inspect wheel nut tightness
every other 5000 Km is necessary
154
Service and Maintenance
Cold enduring tire
If using cold enduring tire, 4 tires must be
assembled at the same time.Driving speed
should not exceed the specified highest
speed of a vehicle by tire manufacturer.
Using cold enduring tire must conform to
tire pressure specified by the tire
manufacturer.
! NoticeUsing cold enduring tire can
cause adverse impact on the security and
automotive dirigibility .Use standard tires
with the same sizes and the same type.
155
Don't use cold enduring tire so long as
road conditions permit.
Snow chain
According to the road location or mode,
alter tire chain regulation and inspect the
chain before installation. When install
chain on the tires, please necessarily
carefully observe the provisions by the
chain manufacturer. Before chain
installation, please take away wheel
housing in case that the chain scratches
the wheel housing. Firmly fix the chain
on the front tires. It is advisable that it not
be used on the rear wheel. After running
of 0.5~1.0km,fasten the chain once again.
!NoticeUsing snow chain could bring
about adverse effect on automobile
manipulation, accordingly the speed of a
vehicle should not exceed 50 Km
/h(30mph )AK or in compliance with the
specified velocity limit( less than 50 Km
/h) by the manufacturer .if you heard the
chain striking vehicle body
or
chassis ,immediately stop the vehicle
and fasten the chain When Using snow
chain , avoid sharp turn , impact
blow ,hurdling pit, wheel lockup and
braking , or follow the provisions by
chain manufacturer. The incorrect using
of Snow chain could gave rise to
interference between snow chain and
