Airbag system
Airbag system
The airbag system consists of a
number of individual systems.
When triggered the airbags inflate
within milliseconds. They also deflate
so quickly that it is often unnoticeable
during the collision.
{Warning
If handled improperly the airbag
systems can be triggered in an
explosive manner.
The driver should sit back as far as
possible while still maintaining
control of the vehicle. If you are
sitting too close to the airbag, it can
cause death or serious injury when
it inflates.
For maximum safety protection in
all types of crashes, all occupants
including the driver should always
wear their safety belts to minimize
the risk of severe injury or death in
the event of a crash. Do not sit or
lean unnecessarily close to the
airbag while the vehicle is in
motion.
The airbag may cause facial or
body scratch, injury by broken
glasses or getting a burn by
explosion while airbag is deployed.

Seats, restraints
{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.
Selecting the right system
The rear seats are the most
convenient location to fasten a child
restraint system.
Never carry a child while travelling in
the vehicle. The child will become too
heavy to hold in the event of a
collision.
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.
When transporting children, use the
child restraint systems suitable for
the child’s weight.
Children under the age of 12 years
that are smaller than 150 cm (5 ft)
are only allowed to travel in a
restraint system that is suitable for
the child. Since a proper position of
the belt is rarely possible with a child
that is smaller than 150 cm (5 ft), we
strongly advise the use of an
appropriate child restraint system,
even though this might, due to the
age of the child, no longer be legally
binding.
Ensure that the mounting location of
the child restraint system within the
vehicle is correct.
Ensure that the child restraint system
to be installed is compatible with the
vehicle type.
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
safety 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.
Seats, restraints
A child restraint system which has
been subjected to stress in an
accident must be replaced.
Please ensure that infants and
children are seated in the rear
seats using child restraints.
Until the children can use safety
belts, please select a child restraint
suitable for its age and make sure
the child wears it. Please see the
instructions on the relevant
products for child restraints.

Roof Rack System
Roof rack
Caution
{Warning
Ensure that the load is evenly
distributed over the side or cross
rails. The roof surface must not be
loaded.
If you try to carry something on top
of your vehicle that is longer or
wider than the roof rack, the wind
can catch it as you drive along.
This can cause you to lose control.
What you are carrying could be
violently torn off, and this could
cause you or other drivers to have
a collision, and of course damage
your vehicle.
A loaded luggage carrier alters the
vehicle's centre of gravity. Drive
carefully when in crosswinds and
do not drive at high speeds.
To prevent damage or loss of
cargo as you are driving, check
frequently to make sure your cargo
are securely fastened.
GC3E4001A
The roof rack can be used to
conveniently carry additional cargo,
or bulky items.
The roof rack has side rails attached
to the roof.
Consult an authorised repairer for
details and regulations on driving
with a loaded roof rack.
When you are carrying cargo on
the roof rack, do not operate the
sunroof.
Never carry something longer or
wider than the roof rack on top of
your vehicle.
A loaded roof rack changes the
vehicle's centre of gravity. Do not
drive at high speeds. Take
precautions when driving in
crosswinds.
Failure to follow this caution can
result in vehicle damage and
personal injury.
Storage
{Warning
The maximum load for the roof
rack rails is 165 lbs (75 kg). Do not
exceed the maximum vehicle
capacity when loading your
vehicle.
Information on loading

Information on loading the
vehicle
 Heavy objects in the tailgate
should be placed against the seat
backrests. Ensure the backrests
are securely engaged. If objects
can be stacked, the heavier
objects should be placed at the
bottom.
 Secure objects in tailgate to
prevent sliding.
 When transporting objects in the
tailgate, 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.
69
 Do not place any objects on the
tailgate cover or the instrument
panel, do not cover the sensor on
top of the instrument panel.
 The load must not obstruct the
operation of the pedals, 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
tailgate.
 The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (See Identification
plate on page 309) and the kerb
weight.
For the kerb weight in detail,refer
to the technical data section.

Storage
 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.

Brakes
All-Wheel Drive
Brakes
If your vehicle has active on demand
all-wheel drive (AWD), the AWD
system operates automatically
without any action required by the
driver. If the front drive wheels begin
to slip, the rear wheels will
automatically begin to drive the
vehicle as required. There may be a
slight engagement noise during hard
use but this is normal.
The brake system comprises two
independent brake circuits.
Note
When TCS/ESC is activated on icy
or slippery road, the AWD may
deactivate. The message code 256
comes on when the AWD system
is temperately disabled.
If the vehicle message code 73
(Service All Wheel Drive System)
appear in the Driver Information
Center (DIC), there is a malfunction
in the AWD system.
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 repairer before
continuing your journey.
Driving and operating 213
Caution
Caution
{Warning
If one of the circuits fail, the brake
pedal must be pressed with greater
pressure and the braking distance
may be increased. Have the brake
system checked and repaired by a
repairer immediately. We
recommend that you consult your
authorised repairer.
Do not drive with your foot resting
on the brake pedal. Do so will
accelerate wear of the brake
components. The brakes may also
become overheated, resulting in
longer braking distance and an
unsafe condition.
If your brakes temporarily lose their
power because of wet brake
components, the following
procedure will help restore their
normal performance:
If the brake pedal can be pressed
further than normal, the brakes
may be in need of repair.
{Warning
Consult a repairer immediately. We
recommend that you consult your
authorised repairer.
After driving through deep water,
washing the vehicle, or using the
brakes excessively when going
down a steep hill, the brakes can
temporarily lose their stopping
power. This may be due to wet
brake components or overheating.
If your brakes temporarily lose their
stopping power because of
overheating: Shift to a lower gear
when going down hills. Do not
continuously apply the brakes.
1. Check behind you for other
vehicles.
2. Keep a safe forward speed with
plenty of space to your rear and
sides.
3. Gently apply the brakes until
normal performance is
restored.
214
Driving and operating
Antilock brake system
(ABS)
Do not decrease the pressure
applied to the footbrake.
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
When you start the vehicle after
ignition is switched on, mechanical
sounds can be heard. This is normal
ABS function.
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.
The ABS control can be known by
vibration and noise of the ABS
process.
To stop the vehicle in an emergency,
keep depressing the footbrake even
if the brake pedal vibrates.
See Antilock brake system (ABS)
warning light on page 88.
Fault
{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 hard
braking, the vehicle can no longer
be steered and may swerve.

brakes remain on for approximately 2
seconds.
Traction control system (TCS)
improves driving stability when
necessary, regardless of the type of
road surface or tyre grip, by
preventing the driving wheels from
spinning.
As soon as the driving wheels start to
spin, engine output is reduced and
the wheel spinning the most is brake

Ultrasonic parking assist
GC3G9002A
Parking assist makes parking easier
by measuring the distance between
the vehicle and rear obstacles, and
giving an acoustic signal in the
passenger compartment. It is the
driver, however, who maintains full
responsibility for parking.
Driving and operating 223
The system consists of four
ultrasonic parking sensors in the rear
bumper.
Note
The attached parts in the detection
area cause system malfunction.
Activation
When reverse gear is engaged, the
system is activated automatically. An
obstacle is indicated by audio.
The interval between the audios
becomes shorter as the vehicle gets
closer to the obstacle. When the
distance is less than 40 cm, the
audio sounds continue.
{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.
Deactivation
Deactivated in drive, Park or if there
is an error.
The system might not detect the
obstacle when the vehicle is driven
above a 10km/h.
Fault

Engine Oil Life System
This vehicle has a computer
system that indicates when to
change the engine oil and filter.
This is based on engine revolutions,
engine temperature and mileage.
Based on driving conditions, the
mileage at which an oil change is
indicated can vary considerably.
For the oil life system to work
properly, the system must be
reset every time the oil is
changed.
When the system has calculated
that oil life has been diminished, it
indicates that an oil change is
necessary.
The vehicle message code
82(Change engine oil soon) will
appear in the Driver Information
Center (DIC).
Change the oil as soon as possible
within the next 1,000 km (600 miles).
It is possible that, if driving under
optimal conditions, the oil life
system might indicate that an oil
change is not necessary for up to a
year. The engine oil and filter must
be changed at least once a year
and, at this time, the system must
be reset.
Your dealer has trained service
people who will perform this work
and reset the system. It is also
important to check the oil regularly
over the course of the oil change
interval and ensure it is at the correct
level.
If the system is ever reset
accidentally, the oil must be
changed at 5,000 km (3,000 miles)
since the last oil change.
After you change the oil, the oil life
monitor will need to be reset. We
recommend that you consult your
authorized repairer.
How to Reset the Engine Oil
Life System
Reset the system whenever the
engine oil is changed so that the
system can calculate the next engine
oil change.

given in this paragraph may lead to
a temporary deactivation of the
stop- start system.
Only use batteries that allow the fuse
box to be mounted above the battery.
In vehicles with stop-start system,
ensure to have the AGM (Absorptive
Glass Mat) battery replaced with an
AGM battery again.
An AGM battery can be identified by
the label on the battery. We
recommend the use of an original
GM battery.
Note
Using an AGM battery different
from the original GM battery might
result in a lower performance of
the stop-start system.
We recommend that you have the
battery replaced by a repairer.
Charging the battery
{Warning
On vehicles with stop-start system,
ensure that the charging potential
does not exceed 14.6 volts when
using a battery charger. Otherwise
the battery might be damaged.

Wiper blade replacement
Properly functioning windshield
wipers are essential for clear vision
and safe driving. Regularly check the
condition of the wiper blades.
Replace hard, brittle or cracked
blades or those that smear dirt on the
windshield.
Foreign material on the windshield or
wiper blades can reduce the
effectiveness of the wipers. If the
blades are not wiping properly, clean
both the windshield and the blades
with a good cleaner or mild
detergent. Rinse them thoroughly
with water.
Repeat the process, if necessary.
There is no way to remove traces of
silicone from glass. Therefore never
apply silicone polish or wax polish to
your vehicle's windshield or you may
have streak marks, blade chatter or
blade noise that impairs the driver's
vision.
250
Vehicle care
Do not use solvents, gasoline,
kerosene, or paint thinner to clean
wipers. These are harsh and can
damage the blades and painted
surfaces.

Tyre Pressure Monitor
Operation
 Load 2: Eco (Eco tyre pressure
mode)
This vehicle may have a Tyre
Pressure Monitor System (TPMS).
 Load 3: Hi (GVW tyre pressure
mode)
The TPMS is designed to warn the
driver when a low tyre pressure
condition exists. TPMS sensors are
mounted onto each tyre and wheel
assembly, excluding the spare tyre
and wheel assembly. The TPMS
sensors monitor the air pressure in
the tyres and transmit the tyre
pressure readings to a receiver
located in the vehicle.
Press the SET/CLR button a few
seconds to confirm.
Note
Tyre inflation pressure label is on
the left side door frame.
GC3E5005A
To adapt tyre pressure telltale to the
vehicle loading conditions, press the
MENU button in the turn signal lever.
Scroll the adjust wheel until reach
"Tyre load" menu. Press the
SET/CLR button. You can select the
following menus.
Each menu can be selected turn the
adjuster wheel in the turn signal
lever.
 Load 1: Lo (Comfort tyre
pressure mode)
For the correct tyre pressure, refer
to the recommended pressure on
the tyre inflation pressure label.
268
Vehicle care
The low tyre pressure telltale comes
on at each ignition cycle until the
tyres are inflated to the correct
inflation pressure.
The low tyre pressure telltale may
come on in cool weather when the
vehicle is first started, and then turn
off as the vehicle is driven. This
could be an early indicator that the
air pressure is getting low and must
be inflated to the proper pressure.
GC3E10001A
When a low tyre pressure condition
is detected, the TPMS illuminates the
low tyre pressure telltale located on
the instrument cluster.
If the low tyre pressure telltale comes
on, stop as soon as possible and
inflate the tyres to the recommended
by the inflation pressure label.
See Tyre pressure on page 266.
A Tyre and Loading Information label
shows the size of the original
equipment tyres and the correct
inflation pressure for the tyres when
they are cold.
See Tyre pressures on page 315.
Note
The TPMS can warn about a low
tyre pressure condition but it does
not replace normal tyre
maintenance.
Caution
Tyre sealant materials are not all
the same. A non-approved tyre
sealant could damage the TPMS
sensors. TPMS sensor damage
caused by using an incorrect tyre
sealant is not covered by the
vehicle warranty. Always use only
the GM-approved tyre sealant
available through your dealer or
included in the vehicle.
Vehicle care
TPMS Malfunction Indicator
GC3E10001A
The TPMS will not function properly if
one or more of the TPMS sensors
are missing or inoperable. When the
system detects a malfunction, the
TPMS malfunction indicator flashes
for about one minute and then stays
on for the remainder of the ignition
cycle.
The TPMS malfunction indicator
comes on at each ignition cycle until
the problem is corrected. Some of
the conditions that can cause these
to come on are:
• One of the road tyres has been
replaced with the spare tyre.
• The spare tyre does not have a
TPMS sensor. The TPMS
malfunction indicator should go
off after the road tyre is replaced
containing TPMS sensor.
• The TPMS sensor matching
process was not done or not
completed successfully after
rotating the tyres. The
malfunction light should go off
after successfully completing the
sensor matching process. See
"TPMS Sensor Matching
Process" later in this section.
269
• One or more TPMS sensors are
missing or damaged. The
malfunction light should go off
when the TPMS sensors are
installed and the sensor matching
process is performed
successfully. See your dealer for
service.
• Replacement tyres or wheels do
not match the original equipment
tyres or wheels. Tyres and
wheels other than those
recommended could prevent the
TPMS from functioning properly.
• Operating electronic devices or
being near facilities using radio
wave frequencies similar to the
TPMS could cause the TPMS
sensors to malfunction.
If the TPMS is not functioning
properly, it cannot detect or signal a
low tyre condition. See your dealer
for service if the TPMS malfunction
light comes on and stay on.
270
Vehicle care
TPMS Sensor Matching
Process
Each TPMS sensor has a unique
identification code. The identification
code needs to be matched to a new
tyre/wheel position after rotating the
tyres or replacing one or more of the
TPMS sensors. The TPMS sensor
matching process should also be
performed after replacing a spare
tyre with a road tyre containing the
TPMS sensor. The malfunction light
should go off at the next ignition
cycle. The sensors are matched to
the tyre/ wheel positions, using a
TPMS relearn tool, in the following
order: driver side front tyre,
passenger side front tyre, passenger
side rear tyre, and driver side rear.
See your dealer for service or to
purchase a relearn tool.
There are two minutes to match the
first tyre/wheel position, and five
minutes overall to match all four
tyre/wheel positions. If it takes
longer, the matching process stops
and must be restarted.
The TPMS sensor matching process
is:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN with
the engine off.
3. Use the MENU button in the turn
signal to select the menu in the
Driver Information Center (DIC).
TNA020A
4. Use the thumbwheel to scroll to
the Tyre Learn menu item
screen.
5. Press the SET/CLR button to
begin the sensor matching
process. A message requesting
acceptance of the process should
display.
6. Press the SET/CLR button again
to confirm the selection.
The horn sounds twice to signal
the receiver is in relearn mode.
Vehicle care
7. Start with the driver side front
tyre.
8. Place the relearn tool against the
tyre sidewall, near the valve
stem. Then press the button to
activate the TPMS sensor. A horn
chirp confirms that the sensor
identification code has been
matched to this tyre and wheel
position.
9. Proceed to the passenger side
front tyre, and repeat the
procedure in Step 8.
10. Proceed to the passenger side
rear tyre, and repeat the
procedure in Step 8.
11. Proceed to the driver side rear
tyre, and repeat the procedure in
Step 8. The horn sounds two
times to indicate the sensor
identification code has been
matched to the driver side rear
tyre, and the TPMS sensor
matching process is no longer
active.
12. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.
13. Set all four tyres to the
recommended air pressure level
as indicated on the Tyre and
Loading Information label.
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).
271
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.
Tyres age, even if they are not used.
We recommend tyre replacement
every 6 years.
MD144
272
Vehicle care
Tyre rotation
Tyres are rotated to achieve a more
uniform wear for all tyres. The first
rotation is the most important.
Any time unusual wear is noticed,
rotate the tyres as soon as possible
and check the wheel alignment. Also
check for damaged tyres or wheels.
Do not include the spare tyre in the
tyre rotation.
Adjust the front and rear tyres to the
recommended inflation pressure on
the Tyre and Loading Information
label after the tyres have been
rotated.
Reset the Tyre Pressure Moniter
System.
Check that all wheel nuts are
properly tightened.
1970757
When rotating the tyres, always use
the correct rotation pattern shown
here.
{Warning
Rust or dirt on a wheel, or on the
parts to which it is fastened, can
make wheel nuts become loose
after time. The wheel could come
off and cause an accident. When
changing a wheel, remove any rust
or dirt from places where the wheel
attaches to the vehicle. In an
emergency, a cloth or a paper
towel can be used; however, use a
scraper or wire brush later to
remove all rust or dirt.
Lightly coat the center of the wheel
hub with wheel bearing grease after
a wheel change or tyre rotation to
prevent corrosion or rust build-up. Do
not get grease on the flat wheel
mounting surface or on the wheel
nuts or bolts.

Tyre changing
Mixing tyres could cause you to lose
control while driving.
If you mix tyres of different sizes,
brands, or types (radial and
bias-belted tyres), the vehicle may
not handle properly, and you could
have a crash. Using tyres of different
sizes, brands, or types may also
cause damage to your vehicle. Be
sure to use the correct size, brand,
and type of tyres on all wheels.
Some vehicles are equipped with a
tyre repair kit instead of a spare
wheel.
Make the following preparations and
observe the following information:
 Pull over your vehicle to a safe
place away from traffic.
277
 Park the vehicle on a lever, firm
and non-skid surface. The front
wheels must be in the
straight-ahead position.
 Use the jack only to change
wheels in case of puncture, not
for seasonal winter or summer
tyre change.
 Apply the parking brake.
For manual transmission, engage
first gear or reverse gear.
For automatic transmission,
engage P position.
 If the ground on which the vehicle
is standing is soft, a solid board
(max. 1cm(0.4 inches) thick)
should be placed under the jack.
 Turn off the engine and remove
key.
 Turn on the hazard flashers.
 Use a wedge, block of wood, or
rocks in front of and behind the
tyre that is diagonal from the tyre
you plan to change.
 Have all passengers get out of
the vehicle.
 Remove the spare wheel.
See "Temporary spare wheel"
under Compact spare tyre on
page 281.
 Never change more than one
wheel at once.
 No people or animals may be in
the vehicle when it is jacked-up.
 Never crawl under a jacked-up
vehicle.
 Do not start the vehicle when it is
raised on the jack.

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 repairer.
Washing
The paintwork of your vehicle is
exposed to environmental
influences. Wash and wax your
vehicle regularly. When using
automatic vehicle 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

Micro lens cracks and welding area
cracks may be caused if the
car-wash guide is not followed.
Headlamp and other lamp 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.
When cleaning the inserts debris,
grease dirt and tar on the exterior
lamps or lenses, use only lukewarm
water, a soft cloth, and a car washing
soap.
Hard cleaning with dry cloth can be
damage on the exterior lamp or lens.
Don't clean the exterior lamps with
intensive car-washing fluid.
Avoid using the hazardous cleaner
under turning on the light. It can be
caused the lens crack by chemical
reaction.
Keep car-washing guide and use the
mild detergent.
Never use washing fluid as below for
a cleaning purpose.
• Acetone
• Benzene
• Tolluene
• Xylene
• Thinner
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 windshield 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.
Wheels and tyres
Do not use high-pressure jet
cleaners.
Clean rims with a pH-neutral wheel
cleaner.
Vehicle care
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 repairer.
Caution for accessory body kit
assembled to the vehicle
Take care for the accessory body kit
assembled to the vehicle.
• Take care not to cause breakage
or body damage caused by a
towing rope when the car is
towed. Tow the car after
detaching the bumper lower
cover, if required.
• Extra attention must be paid to
the low level of ground clearance
when driving, in particular with
sleeping policeman, kerb stones,
parking ramps, etc.
• Use support, when lifted, to
ensure no damage is caused by
interference with body kit.
• Use safety loader of flat bed to
protect against body damage and
breakage when towing the car.
Underbody
Corrosive materials used for ice and
snow removal or dust control can
collect on the underbody of your
vehicle. Failure to remove these
materials can accelerate corrosion
and rust.
Periodically use plain water to flush
these materials from the underbody
of your vehicle.
Take care to clean any areas in
which mud and other debris can
collect. Loosen any sediment packed
in closed area before flushing with
water.
Tailgate support gas strut service
Visually inspect gas strut, if
equipped, for signs of wear, cracks,
291
or other damage. Check the hold
open ability of the gas strut. Contact
your dealer if service is required.
Interior care
The interior will continue to look its
best if it is cleaned often. Dust and
dirt can accumulate on the
upholstery and cause damage to the
carpet, fabric, leather, and plastic
surfaces. Stains should be removed
quickly as extreme heat could cause
them to set rapidly.
Lighter colored interiors may require
more frequent cleaning.
Newspapers and garments that can
transfer color to home furnishings
can also transfer color to the interior.
Remove dust from small buttons and
knobs with a small brush with soft
bristles.
When cleaning the interior, only use
cleaners specifically designed for the
surfaces that are being cleaned.
292
Vehicle care
Permanent damage can result from
using cleaners on surfaces for which
they were not intended. Apply the
cleaner directly to the cleaning cloth
to prevent over-spray. Remove any
accidental over-spray from other
surfaces immediately.
Note
Using abrasive cleaners when
cleaning glass surfaces on the
vehicle could scratch the glass
and/or cause damage to the rear
window defogger. When cleaning
the glass on the vehicle, use only a
soft cloth and glass cleaner.
Cleaners can contain solvents that
can become concentrated in the
interior.
Before using cleaners, read and
adhere to all safety instructions on
the label. While cleaning the interior,
maintain adequate ventilation by
opening the doors and windows.
Do not clean the interior using the
following cleaners or techniques:
• Never use a knife or any other
sharp object to remove a soil
from any interior surface.
• Never use a stiff brush. It can
cause damage.
• Never apply heavy pressure or
rub aggressively with a cleaning
cloth. Use of heavy pressure can
damage the interior and does not
improve the effectiveness of soil
removal.
• Avoid laundry detergents or
dishwashing soaps with
degreasers. Using too much
soap will leave a residue that
leaves streaks and attracts dirt.
Use only mild, neutral-pH soaps.
• Do not heavily saturate the
upholstery while cleaning.
• Cleaners that contain solvents
can damage the interior.
Fabric/carpet
Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft
brush attachment to remove dust
and loose dirt. A canister vacuum
with rotating brushes in the nozzle
may only be used on floor carpet and
carpeted floor mats. For soils, always
try to remove them first with plain
water or club soda.
Before cleaning, gently remove as
much of the soil as possible using
one of the following techniques:
• For liquids: gently blot the
remaining soil with a paper towel.
Allow the soil to absorb into the
paper towel until no more can be
removed.
• For solid dry soils: remove as
much as possible and then
vacuum.
Vehicle care
To clean:
1. Saturate a lint-free, clean white
cloth with water or club soda.
2. Remove excess moisture.
3. Start on the outside edge of the
soil and gently rub toward the
center. Continue cleaning, using
a clean area of the cloth each
time it becomes soiled.
4. Continue to gently rub the soiled
area.
5. If the soil is not completely
removed, use a mild soap
solution and repeat the cleaning
process with plain water.
If any of the soil remains, a
commercial fabric cleaner or spot
lifter may be necessary. Test a small
hidden area for colorfastness before
using commercial upholstery cleaner
or spot lifter. If the locally cleaned
area gives any impression that a ring
formation may result, clean the entire
surface.
A paper towel can be used to blot
excess moisture from the fabric or
carpet after the cleaning process.
Caution
Close Velcro fasteners as open
Velcro fasteners on clothing could
damage seat upholstery.
Leather
Leather, and lighter colored leather
in particular, will need more frequent
cleaning to prevent the buildup of
dust, dirt, and colors transferred from
other items so that these do not
become permanent stains.
To remove dust, a soft cloth
dampened with water can be used.
If a more thorough cleaning is
necessary, a soft cloth dampened
with a mild soap solution can be
used. Allow the leather to dry
naturally.
Do not use heat, steam, spot lifters
or spot removers, or shoe polish on
293
leather. Many commercial leather
cleaners and coatings that are sold
to preserve and protect leather may
permanently change the appearance
and feel of the leather and are not
recommended. Do not use silicone
or wax-based products, or those
containing organic solvents to clean
the interior because they can alter
the appearance by increasing the
gloss in a non-uniform manner.
294
Vehicle care
Instrument panel, vinyl, and other
plastic surfaces
To remove dust, a soft cloth
dampened with water can be used.
If a more thorough cleaning is
necessary, a clean soft cloth
dampened with a mild soap solution
can be used to gently remove dust
and dirt. Never use spot lifters or
removers on plastic surfaces.
Many commercial cleaners and
coatings that are sold to preserve
and protect soft plastic surfaces may
permanently change the appearance
and feel of the interior and are not
recommended. Do not use silicone
or wax-based products, or those
containing organic solvents to clean
the interior because they can alter
the appearance by increasing the
gloss in a non-uniform manner.
Some commercial products may
increase gloss on the instrument
panel. The increase in gloss may
cause annoying reflections in the
windshield and even make it difficult
to see through the windshield under
certain conditions.
Note
Care of safety belts
Keep belts clean and dry.
{Warning
Air fresheners contain solvents
that may cause damage to plastics
and painted surfaces.
Do not bleach or dye safety belts.
Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions when using air
fresheners in the vehicle. If air
freshener comes in contact with
paint or a plastic surface, blot
immediately with a soft cloth.
Clean safety belts only with mild
soap and lukewarm water.
Damage caused by using air
fresheners would not be covered
by the vehicle warranty.
It may severely weaken them. In a
crash, they might not be able to
provide adequate protection.
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 high
pressure jet cleaners.
Vehicle care
Floor mats
{Warning
If a floor mat is the wrong size or is
not properly installed, it can
interfere with the accelerator pedal
and/or brake pedal. Interference
with the pedals can cause
unintended acceleration and/or
increased stopping distance which
can cause a crash and injury.
Make sure the floor mat does not
interfere with the accelerator or
brake pedal.
Use the following guidelines for
proper floor mat usage:
• The original equipment floor mats
were designed for your vehicle. If
the floor mats need replacing, it is
recommended that GM certified
floor mats be purchased.
Non-GM floor mats may not fit
properly and may interfere with
the accelerator or brake pedal.
Always check that the floor mats
do not interfere with the pedals.
• Use the floor mat with the correct
side up. Do not turn it over.
• Do not place anything on top of
the driver side floor mat.
• Use only a single floor mat on the
driver’s side.
• Do not place one floor mat on top
of another.

13
Visually inspect hoses and have them replaced if they are cracked, swollen, or deteriorated.
Inspect all pipes, fittings, and clamps; replace with genuine parts if needed. To help ensure
correct operation, a pressure test of the cooling system and pressure cap and cleaning the
outside of the radiator and air conditioning condenser is recommended.
14
Make sure the safety belt reminder light and safety belt assemblies are working correctly. Look
for any other loose or damaged safety belt system parts. If you see anything that might keep a
safety belt system from doing its job, have it repaired. Ensure any torn or frayed safety belts
are replaced.
16
Lubricate all key lock cylinders, door hinges and latches, hood hinges and latches, and trunk
lid hinges and latches. More frequent lubrication may be required when exposed to a corrosive
environment. Applying silicone grease on weatherstrips with a clean cloth will make them last
longer, seal better, and not stick or squeak.

time you fill your fuel tank or at least once a month using a tyre pressure gauge.
Wheel alignment
If necessary, rotate and balance wheels.
Service and maintenance
Additional servicing
Extreme operating conditions
Extreme operating conditions are
given when at least one of the
following occurs frequently:
 Repeated short-distance driving
less than 5 miles (10 Km).
 Extensive idling and/or
slow-speed driving in
stop-and-go traffic.
 Driving on dusty roads.
 Driving on hilly or mountainous
terrain.
 Towing a trailer.
 Driving in heavy city traffic where
the outside temperatures
regularly reach 90F(32C) or
higher.
 Driving as a taxi, police or
delivery vehicle.
 Frequent driving when outside
temperature remains below

Recommended fluids,
lubricants and parts
Under extreme operating conditions,
it may be necessary to have certain
scheduled service work done more
frequently than the scheduled
intervals.
Recommended fluids and
lubricants
Seek technical advice on the
servicing requirements dependent on
the specific operating conditions.
Only use products that have been
tested and approved. Damage
resulting from the use of
nonapproved materials will not be
covered by the warranty.
{Warning
Operating materials are hazardous
and could be poisonous. Handle
with care. Pay attention to
information given on the
containers.
304
Service and maintenance
Engine Oil
Selecting the right Engine Oil
Engine Oil is identified by its Quality
and its Viscosity Grade. "Quality"
and "Specification" are equivalent
terms in this respect. Engine Oil
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 aging control,
whereas Viscosity Grade gives
information on the oil’s thickness
over a temperature range.
Selecting the right Engine Oil
depends on the proper Oil
Specification and SAE Viscosity
Grade.
Use and ask for Engine Oils with the
dexos™ Certification Logo. Oils
meeting the requirements of your
vehicle should have the dexos™
Certification Logo on the container.
C3E9006A
This Logo indicates that the oil has
been approved by GM to the
dexos™ Specification.
Your vehicle’s Engine was filled at
the factory with dexos™ approved
Engine Oil.
Engine Oil Quality for Service
dexos 2™
2398375
Use only Engine Oil that is approved
to the dexos™ Specification or an
equivalent Engine Oil of the
appropriate Viscosity Grade.
If you are unsure whether your oil is
approved to the dexos™
Specification, ask your service
provider.
Service and maintenance
Use of substitute engine oils if dexos
is unavailable: In the event that
dexos approved engine oil is not
available at an oil change or for
maintaining proper oil level, you may
use substitute engine oil of the
qualities mentioned above. Use of
oils that do not meet the dexos
specification, however, may result in
reduced performance under certain
circumstances.
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, ACEA A3/B3, or
ACEA C3 Quality may be used (only
once between each oil change).
The Viscosity should be of the
correct rating.
305
Use of Engine Oil with only ACEA
A1/B1 or only ACEA A5/B5 Quality is
prohibited, as it can cause long term
engine damage under certain
operating conditions.
Engine Oil Additives
The use of supplemental Engine Oil
Additives could cause damage and
invalidate the warranty.
Engine Oil Viscosity Grades
The SAE Viscosity Grade gives
information of the thickness of the
Oil.
Multigrade Oil is indicated by two
figures:
The first figure, followed by a W,
indicates the low temperature
Viscosity and the second figure
indicates the high temperature
Viscosity.
TEL119A
SAE 5W-30 is the best Viscosity
Grade for your vehicle. Do not use
other Viscosity Grade Oils such as
SAE 10W-30, 10W-40 or 20W-50.
Cold temperature operation:
If operating your vehicle in an area of
extreme cold, where the temperature
falls below -25C, a Viscosity Grade
SAE 0W-xx should be used. An Oil of
this Viscosity Grade will provide
easier cold starting for the engine at
extremely low temperatures.
306
Service and maintenance
When selecting an Oil of the
appropriate Viscosity Grade be sure
to always select an Oil that meets the
dexos™‚ Specification.
 Down to -25C: 5W-30, 5W-40.
In countries with cold climate the
coolant provides freeze protection
down to approx. -50C. This
concentration should be maintained
all year-round.
 Down to -25C and below:
0W-30, 0W-40.
Maintain a sufficient concentration of
anti-freeze.
The SAE viscosity grade gives
information of the thickness of the oil.
Multi grade oil is indicated by two
figures.
The first figure, followed by a W,
indicates the low temperature
viscosity and the second figure the
high temperature viscosity.
Coolant and antifreeze
Use only organic acid type-long life
coolant (LLC) antifreeze.
In countries with moderate climate
the coolant provides freeze
protection down to approx. -35C.
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 fluid
Only use our authorised brake fluid
for this vehicle(DOT 4).
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.
Service and maintenance
Power steering fluid
Only use Dexron VI fluid.
Manual transmission fluid
Only use Castrol BOT 303 fluid.
Automatic transmission fluid
Only use Dexron VI fluid.
Transfer case fluid (AWD)
Only use synthetic hypoid 75W-90
fluid.
Differential carrier assembly fluid
(AWD)
Only use synthetic hypoid 75W-90
fluid.

Vehicle Data Recording
Vehicle Data Recording
Vehicle data recording and
privacy
The vehicle has a number of
computers that record information
about the vehicle’s performance and
how it is driven.For example, the
vehicle uses computer modules to
monitor and control engine and
transmission performance, to
monitorthe conditions for airbag
deployment and deploy them in a
crash, and, if equipped, to provide
antilock braking to help the driver
control the vehicle. These modules
may store data to help the dealer
technician service the vehicle.
Somemodules may also store data
about how the vehicle is operated,
such as rate of fuel consumption or
average speed.These modules may
retain personal preferences, such as
radio presets, seat positions, and
temperature settings.
This vehicle may be equipped with a
module that records data in certain
crash or near crash-like situations,
such as when an air bag deploys or
the vehicle hits a road obstacle. This
data could help provide a better
understanding of the circumstances
in which crashes and injuries occur.
Some data may be related to the
vehicle dynamics and safety systems
operation.
The data may show:
• How various systems in the
vehicle were operating.
• Whether or not the driver and
passenger safety belts were
buckled/fastened.
• If and how far the driver was
pressing the accelerator and/or
brake pedal.
• How fast the vehicle was
traveling.
318
Customer information
This data could provide an
understanding of the circumstances
in which crashes and injuries occur.
Data could be recorded by the
vehicle only if a non-trivial crash
situation occurs; no data are
recorded under normal driving
conditions and no personal data are
recorded. However, other parties,
such as law enforcement, could
combine recorded data with the type
of personally identifying data
routinely acquired during a crash
investigation.
To read recorded data, special
equipment is required, and access to
the vehicle or the module is needed.
In addition to the vehicle
manufacturer, other parties, such as
law enforcement, that have the
special equipment, can read the
information if they have access to the
vehicle or the module.
GM will not access this data 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 by police or similar
government office; as part of GM's
defense of litigation through the
discovery process; or, as required by
law. Data that GM collects or
receives may also be used for GM
research needs or may be made
available to others for research
purposes, where a need is shown
and the data is not tied to a specific
vehicle or vehicle owner.
