If the central locking system cannot
be operated with the radio remote
control, it may be due to the following:
■ Range exceeded
■ Battery voltage too low
■ Frequent, repeated operation of the
radio remote control while not in
range, which will require resynchronisation
■ Overload of the central locking
system by operating at frequent
intervals; the power supply is
interrupted for a short time
■ Interference from higher-power
radio waves from other sources

no person is allowed to occupy the
front passenger seat. Contact
a workshop immediately.
Consult a workshop immediately if
neither of the two control indicators

Child restraints
Child restraint systems
We recommend the Vauxhall child
restraint system which is designed
specifically to the vehicle.
When a child restraint system is being
used, pay attention to the following
usage and installation instructions
and also those supplied with the child
restraint system.
Always comply with local or national
regulations. In some countries, the
use of child restraint systems is
forbidden on certain seats.
Seats, restraints
9 Danger
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
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.
Children under the age of 12 years
that are smaller than 5 ft (150 cm) are
only allowed to travel in a restraint
system that is suitable for the child.
Only child restraint systems that
comply with ECE 44-03 and ECE
44-04 are suitable. Since a proper
position of the belt is rarely possible
with a child that is smaller than 5 ft
(150 cm), we strongly advise using an
appropriate child restraint system,
even though this may no longer be
legally binding due to the age of the
child.
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.
Allow children to enter and exit the
vehicle only on the side facing away
from the traffic.
When the child restraint system is not
in use, secure the seat with a seat belt
or remove it from the vehicle.
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.

Loading information
■ Heavy objects in the load
compartment should be placed
against the seat backrests. Make
sure that the backrests are securely
engaged, hence no longer showing
the red markings on the side near
the release lever. If objects can be
stacked, heavier objects should be
placed at the bottom.
■ Secure objects with lashing straps
attached to lashing eyes 3 63.
■ Secure loose objects in the load
compartment to prevent from
sliding.
■ When transporting objects in the
load compartment, the backrests of
the rear seats must not be angled
forward.
■ Do not allow the load to protrude
above the upper edge of the
backrests.
■ Do not place any objects on the
load compartment cover or the
instrument panel, and do not cover
the sensor on top of the instrument
panel.
■ The load must not obstruct the
operation of the pedals, parking
brake and gear selector, or hinder
the freedom of movement of the
driver. Do not place any unsecured
objects in the interior.
■ Do not drive with an open load
compartment.
9 Warning
Always make sure that the load in
the vehicle is securely stowed.
Otherwise objects can be thrown
around inside the car and cause
personal injury or damage to the
load or car.
■ The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (see identification
plate 3 199) and the EC kerb
weight.
To calculate the EC kerb weight,
enter the data for your vehicle in the
Weights table in the Introduction
section.
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.
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.
The permissible roof load is 100 kg.
The roof load is the combined
weight of the roof rack and the load.

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 without
any notification. The filter is cleaned
by periodically burning off the soot
particles at high temperature. This
process takes place automatically
under set driving conditions and may
Driving and operating
take up to 25 minutes. Typically it
needs between 7 and 12 minutes.
Fuel consumption may be higher
during this period. The emission of
smells and smoke during this process
is normal.
Control indicator % illuminates when
diesel particle filter is full. Start
cleaning process as soon as
possible.
Control indicator % flashes when
diesel particle filter has reached the
maximum filling level. Start cleaning
process immediately to avoid
damage to the engine.
Cleaning process
Under certain driving conditions, e.g.
short distances, the system cannot
clean itself automatically.
If the cleaning of the filter is required
and if previous driving conditions did
not enable automatic cleaning, it will
be indicated by the control indicator
%. Simultaneously Particulate Filter
Is Full. See Owner's Manual appears
in the Driver Information Center.
To activate cleaning process,
continue driving, keep engine speed
above 2000 revolutions per minute.
Shift down if necessary. Diesel
particle filter cleaning is then started.
If control indicator g also
illuminates, cleaning is not possible.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
Caution
If the cleaning process is
interrupted, there is a risk of
provoking severe engine damage.
Cleaning takes place quickest at high
engine speeds and loads.
131
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.
Caution
Fuel grades other than those listed
on pages 3 150, 3 201 could
damage the catalytic converter or
electronic components.
Unburnt petrol will overheat and
damage the catalytic converter.
Therefore avoid excessive use of
the starter, running the fuel tank
dry and starting the engine by
pushing or towing.
In the event of misfiring, uneven
engine running, a reduction in engine
performance or other unusual
problems, have the cause of the fault
rectified by a workshop as soon as
possible. In an emergency, driving

Drive systems
Brakes
All-wheel drive
The brake system comprises two
independent brake circuits.
If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can
still be braked using the other brake
circuit. However, braking effect is
achieved only when the brake pedal
is depressed firmly. Considerably
more force is needed for this. The
braking distance is extended. Seek
the assistance of a workshop before
continuing your journey.
When the engine is not running, the
support of the brake servo unit
disappears once the brake pedal has
been depressed once or twice.
Braking effect is not reduced, but
braking requires significantly greater
force. It is especially important to bear
this in mind when being towed.
Control indicator R 3 86.
The All-wheel drive system enhances
driving characteristics and stability,
and helps to achieve the best
possible driveability regardless of
ground surface. The system is always
active and cannot be deactivated.
The torque is distributed steplessly
between the front and rear wheels,
depending on the driving conditions.
For optimum system performance,
the vehicle's tyres should not have
varying degrees of wear.
If a service message is displayed in
the Driver Information Center, the
system may have limited functionality
(or be completely disabled in some
cases, i.e. the vehicle switches to
front-wheel drive). Seek the
assistance of a workshop.
Towing the vehicle 3 190.
Antilock brake system
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
137
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.
Control indicator u 3 86.
Adaptive brake light
During full braking, all three brake
lights flash for the duration of ABS
control.

Parking brake
Fault
9 Warning
Electrical parking brake
Manual parking brake
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.
Have the cause of the fault remedied
by a workshop.
Always apply parking brake firmly
without operating the release button,
and apply as firmly as possible on
a downhill or uphill slope.
To release the parking brake, pull the
lever up slightly, operate the release
button and fully lower the lever.
To reduce the operating forces of the
parking brake, depress the foot brake
at the same time.

when the switch m is pulled.
This function also helps driving away
on inclines.
Aggressive drive away may reduce
lifetime of wear parts.
Dynamic braking when vehicle is
moving
When the vehicle is moving and the
switch m is kept pulled, the electrical
parking brake system will decelerate
the vehicle, but will not apply
statically.
As soon as the switch m is released,
dynamic braking will be stopped.
Fault
Failure mode of electrical parking
brake is indicated by control indicator
j and by a code number or a vehicle
message which is displayed in the
Driver Information Center. Vehicle
messages 3 95.
Apply electrical parking brake: pull
and hold the switch m for more than
5 seconds. If control indicator m
illuminates, electrical parking brake is
applied.
Release electrical parking brake:
push and hold the switch m for more
than 2 seconds. If control indicator
m extinguishes, electrical parking
brake is released.
Control indicator m flashes: electrical
parking brake is not fully applied or
released. When continuously

brake and reapply.
139
Brake assist
If the brake pedal is depressed
quickly and forcefully, maximum
brake force is automatically applied
(full braking).
Maintain steady pressure on the
brake pedal for as long as full braking
is required. Maximum brake force is
automatically reduced when the
brake pedal is released.
Hill start assist
The system helps driving away on
inclines at a constant speed by
holding the vehicle. After the parking
brake is disengaged and the foot
brake pedal is released, the brakes
are released after a 2 second delay.

Drive mode control
Within each manually selected driving
mode (SPORT, TOUR or Normal),
the Drive Mode Control (DMC)
detects and continously analyses the
real driving characteristics,
responses by the driver, and the
active dynamic state of the vehicle. If
necessary the control unit of DMC
automatically changes the settings
within the selected driving mode or,
when recognising greater variations,
the driving mode is changed for the
length of variation.
If, for example, Normal mode is
selected and DMC detects a sporty
driving behaviour, DMC changes
several settings of the Normal mode
into sporty settings. The DMC
changes to Sport mode in case of
very sporty driving behaviour.
If, for example, TOUR mode is
selected and whilst driving on
a winding road a sudden hard brake
is necessary, DMC will detect the
dynamic vehicle condition and
changes the settings for suspension
to SPORT mode to increase vehicle
stability.
When the driving characteristics or
the dynamic vehicle state return to

Advanced parking aid
Activation
The advanced parking aid system
manoeuvres the driver into a parking
slot by giving instructions on the
Driver Information Center and
acoustic signals. It is the driver,
however, who bears full responsibility
for accepting the parking slot
suggested by the system and the
parking manoeuvre.
The system uses the sensors of the
parking assist system in combination
with two additional sensors on both
sides of the front bumper.
When looking for a parking slot, the
system has to be activated by
pressing the ( button.
The system only operates at a speed
up to 18 mph (30 km/h).
The maximum allowed parallel
distance between the vehicle and
a row of parking cars is 6 ft (1.8 m).

Driving and operating
Functionality
When the vehicle passes a row of
cars and the system is activated, the
advanced parking aid system begins
looking for a suitable parking slot.
When a suitable slot is detected,
a visual feedback and acoustic
signals are given on the Driver
Information Center.
The suggestion of the system is
accepted when the vehicle is stopped
by the driver within 33 ft (10 metres)
after the message is given. The
system calculates the optimal route
into the parking slot. Then it
manoeuvres the driver into the slot by
giving detailed instructions.
The instructions show:
■ a hint when driving faster than
18 mph (30 km/h),
■ the demand to stop the vehicle,
when a parking slot is detected,
■ the direction of driving during the
parking manoeuvre,
■ the steering wheel position during
parking,
■ for some of the instructions
a progress bar is shown.
A successful parking manoeuvre is
indicated by the target symbol.

Important hints for using the
parking assist systems
9 Warning
Under certain circumstances,
various reflective surfaces on
objects or clothing as well as
external noise sources may cause
the system to fail to detect
obstacles.
Caution
Performance of the sensor can be
reduced when sensors are
covered, e.g. by ice or snow.
Performance of the parking assist
systems can be reduced by a level
change of the sensors due to
heavy loading.
Special conditions apply if there
are taller vehicles involved (e.g.
off-road vehicles, mini vans,
vans). Object identification in the
upper part of the vehicle cannot be
guaranteed.
Objects with a very small reflection
cross section, like objects of
narrow size or soft materials, may
not be detected by the system.
Parking assist systems are not
effective in assisting drivers in
avoiding a collision with
unexpected objects.
Notice
The parking assist system
automatically detects factory-fitted
towing equipment. It is deactivated
when the connector is plugged in.
Sensors could detect a non-existent
object (echo disturbance) caused by
external acoustical or mechanic
disturbances.
Advanced parking aid system may
not respond to changes in the parking
space after initiating a parallel parking
manoeuvre.
Lane departure warning
The lane departure warning system
observes the lane markings in which
the vehicle is driving via a front
camera. The system detects lane
changes and warns the driver in the
event of an unintended lane change
via visual and acoustic signals.
Criteria for the detection of an
unintended lane change include:
■ no operation of turn signals
■ no brake pedal operation
Driving and operating

Fuel
Fuel for petrol engines
Only use unleaded fuel that complies
with DIN EN 228.
Equivalent standardised fuels with an
ethanol content of max. 10 % by
volume may be used. In this case only
use fuel that complies with
DIN 51625.
Use fuel with the recommended
octane rating 3 201. Use of fuel with
too low an octane rating can reduce
engine power and torque and slightly
increases fuel consumption.
Caution
Use of fuel with too low an octane
rating could lead to uncontrolled
combustion and engine damage.
Fuel for diesel engines
Only use diesel fuel that complies
with DIN EN 590. The fuel must have
low sulphur content (max. 10 ppm).
Equivalent standardised fuels with
a biodiesel (= FAME according to
EN14214) content of max. 7% by
volume (like DIN 51628 or equivalent
standards) may be used.
Country-specific exception for
Morocco: use Diesel 50 ppm only.
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.
Driving and operating
Refuelling
151
9 Danger
Fuel is flammable and explosive.
No smoking. No naked flames or
sparks.
If you can smell fuel in your
vehicle, have the cause of this
remedied immediately by
a workshop.
Fuel filler flap is located at right rear
side of vehicle.
9 Danger
The fuel filler cap can be retained in
the bracket on the fuel filler flap.
Caution
Before refuelling, switch off engine
and any external heaters with
combustion chambers. Switch off
any mobile phones.
Follow the operating and safety
instructions of the filling station
when refuelling.
Wipe off any overflowing fuel
immediately.
Fuel filler cap
Only a genuine fuel filler cap provides
full functionality. Diesel-engined
vehicles have special fuel filler caps.
The fuel filler flap can only be opened
if the vehicle is unlocked. Release the
fuel filler flap by pushing the flap.

Driving and operating
Fuel consumption - CO2Emissions
The determination of fuel
consumption is regulated by
European directive
715/2007 692/2008 A.
The directive is oriented to actual
driving practices: Urban driving is
rated at approx. 1/3 and extra urban
driving at 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.
Fuel consumption, CO2 emissions

Towing
General information
The factory-fitted towing equipment is
folded up under the rear bumper
fascia.
Entrust fitting of towing equipment at
a later date to a workshop. It may be
necessary to make changes that
affect the cooling system, heat
shields or other equipment. Only use
towing equipment that has been
approved for your vehicle.
To avoid vehicle damage, the power
tailgate cannot be operated with the
radio remote control when a trailer is
electrically connected.
Fitting of towing equipment could
cover the opening of the towing eye.
If this is the case use the coupling ball
bar for towing.
Installation dimensions of factoryfitted towing equipment 3 253.
Driving and operating
Driving characteristics and
towing tips
Trailer towing
Before attaching a trailer, lubricate
the coupling ball. However, do not do
so if a stabiliser, which acts on the
coupling ball, is being used to reduce
snaking movements.
For trailers with low driving stability
and trailers with a permitted gross
vehicle weight of more than 1400 kg
the use of a stabiliser is strongly
recommended when driving above
50 mph (80 km/h).
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 3 215.
The permissible trailer loads are
vehicle-dependent and enginedependent maximum values which
must not be exceeded. The actual
trailer load is the difference between
the actual gross weight of the trailer
and the actual coupling socket load
with the trailer coupled.
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 (1000 metres)
above sea level. Since engine power
decreases as altitude increases due
to the air becoming thinner, therefore
reducing climbing ability, the
permissible gross train weight also
decreases by 10 % for every 3300 ft
(1000 metres) of additional altitude.
The gross train weight does not have
to be reduced when driving on roads
with slight inclines (less than 8 %, e.g.
motorways).
Trailer loads
153
The permissible gross train weight
must not be exceeded. This weight is
specified on the identification plate
3 199.
Vertical coupling load
The vertical coupling load is the load
exerted by the trailer on the coupling
ball. It can be varied by changing the
weight distribution when loading the
trailer.
The maximum permissible vertical
coupling load (85 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.
154
Driving and operating
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 for the Saloon/Hatchback and
85 kg for the Estate, the gross vehicle
weight rating may be exceeded by
65 kg for the Saloon/Hatchback and
60 kg for the Estate. If the permissible
rear axle load is exceeded,
a maximum speed of 60 mph
(100 km/h) applies.
9 Warning
Make sure that no one is in the
pivot zone of the coupling ball bar.
Risk of body injury.
When releasing the stowed
coupling ball bar, make sure to
stand left of the grip.
Release stowed coupling ball bar
A buzzing tone sounds as a warning

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
The vehicle tools and tyre repair kit
are in a storage compartment below
the floor cover in the load
compartment.
Vehicles with spare wheel
The jack and vehicle tools are in
a stowage compartment in the load
compartment below the spare wheel.
Spare wheel 3 188.
Tyres of size:
205/60 R 16, 215/55 R 17,
225/50 R 17, 225/45 R 18 and
235/45 R 18 are only to be used as
winter tyres.
Winter tyres
Winter tyres improve driving safety at
temperatures below 7 °C and should
therefore be fitted on all wheels.
Vehicle care
Tyres of size 245/45 R 18,
245/40 R 19 and 245/35 R 20 must
not be used as winter tyres.
In accordance with country-specific
regulations, affix the speed sticker in
the driver's field of view.
Tyre designations
Tyre pressure
Check the pressure of cold tyres at
least every 14 days and before any
long journey. Do not forget the spare
wheel. This also applies to vehicles
with tyre pressure monitoring system.
Unscrew the valve cap.
The ECO tyre pressure serves to
achieve the smallest amount of fuel
consumption possible.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and
fuel economy and will increase tyre
wear.

If the pressure is too low, this can
result in considerable tyre warmup and internal damage, leading to
tread separation and even to tyre
blow-out at high speeds.
If the tyre pressure must be reduced
or increased on a vehicle with tyre
pressure monitoring system, switch
off ignition.
Tyre pressure 3 215 and on the label
on the front left door frame.
The tyre pressure data refers to cold
tyres. It applies to summer and winter
tyres.
Always inflate the spare tyre to the
pressure specified for full load.
Tyre pressure monitoring
system
The tyre pressure monitoring system
checks the pressure of all four wheels
once a minute when vehicle speed
exceeds a certain limit.
180
Vehicle care
All wheels must be equipped with
pressure sensors and the tyres must
have the prescribed pressure.
The current tyre pressures can be
shown in the Vehicle Information
Menu in the Driver Information
Center.
The menu can be selected by the
buttons on the turn signal lever.
Press the MENU button to select the
Vehicle Information Menu.
Turn the adjuster wheel to select the
tyre pressure monitoring system.
System status and small pressure
differences are displayed by
a warning message with the
corresponding tyre flashing in the
Driver Information Center.
Furthermore considerable pressure
differences between the tyres on one
axle are displayed by a warning
message in the Driver Information
Center.
Major pressure differences are
indicated additionally by the control
indicator w.
Control indicator w 3 88.
Vehicle messages 3 95.
If the tyre pressure must be reduced
or increased, switch off ignition.
If a complete set of wheels without
sensors is mounted (e.g. four winter
tyres), a message is displayed in the
Driver Information Center. The tyre
pressure monitoring system is not
operational. Fitting of sensors at
a later date is possible.
A spare wheel or temporary spare
wheel is not equipped with pressure
sensors. The tyre pressure
monitoring system is not operational
for these wheels. Control indicator w
illuminates. For the other three
wheels the system remains
operational.
The use of commercially available
liquid tyre repair kits can impair the
function of the system. Only the
Vauxhall-approved tyre repair kit may
be used.
External high-power radio equipment
could disrupt the tyre pressure
monitoring system.
Vehicle care
The tyre pressure monitoring system
valve cores and sealing rings must be
replaced each time the tyres are
changed.
Adaptive threshold function
The tyre pressure monitoring system
automatically detects if the vehicle is
driven with a tyre pressure
appropriate for a load of up to
3 people or for a full load.
If the tyre pressure must be reduced,
switch off ignition first.
Auto learn function
After changing wheels the vehicle has
to be stationary for approx.
20 minutes before the system
recalculates. The following relearn
process takes up to 10 minutes of
driving with a minimum speed of
12 mph (20 km/h). In this case $ can
be displayed or pressure values can
swap in the Driver Information Center.
If problems occur during the relearn
process a warning message is
displayed in the Driver Information
Center.
181
Temperature compensation
Cold tyres decrease the tyre
pressure, warm tyres increase the
tyre pressure. The tyre pressure
monitoring system considers this
effect for the warning messages.
The tyre pressure value displayed in
the Driver Information Center shows
the actual tyre pressure. Therefore it
is important to check tyre pressure
with cold tyres.
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. 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.
182
Vehicle care
Changing tyre and wheel size
If tyres of a different size than those
fitted at the factory are used, it may be
necessary to reprogramme the
speedometer as well as the nominal
tyre pressure and make other vehicle
modifications.
After converting to a different tyre
size, have the label with tyre
pressures replaced.
9 Warning
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.
Wheel covers must not impair brake
cooling.
Tyre chains
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel
covers could lead to sudden
pressure loss and thereby
accidents.
Wheel caps
Tyres of size 245/35 R20 have
a specific wheel cap. To remove the
cap from the dismantled wheel first
disengage the arms one by one. Then
press the cap in the middle area from
behind and remove it.
To assemble first adjust the wheel
cap in order that the positioning leg
fits into the recess.

pollen and the like should be cleaned
off immediately, as they contain
aggressive constituents which can
cause paint damage.
If using a vehicle wash, comply with
the vehicle wash manufacturer's
instructions. The windscreen wipers
193
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.
194
Vehicle care
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.
Clean smearing wiper blades with
a soft cloth and window cleaner.
Sunroof
Never clean with solvents or abrasive
agents, fuels, aggressive media (e.g.
paint cleaner, 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 sunroof.
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.
Towing equipment
Do not clean the coupling ball bar with
a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.

Interior and upholstery
Only clean the vehicle interior,
including the instrument panel fascia
and panelling, with a dry cloth or
interior cleaner.
Vehicle care
The instrument panel should only be
cleaned using a soft damp cloth.
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.
The same applies to clothing with
sharp-edged objects, like zips or
belts or studded jeans.
Plastic and rubber parts

is of vital importance that all
maintenance work is carried out at the
proper intervals as specified.
The detailed, up-to-date service
schedule for the vehicle is available
from your Vauxhall Authorised
Repairer.
Service display 3 81.
Service intervals
Maintenance of the vehicle is
required every 20,000 miles
(30,000 km) or after 1 year, whichever
occurs first, unless otherwise
indicated by the oil life system.
Service display 3 81.
Confirmations
Confirmation of service is recorded in
the Service and Warranty Booklet.
The date and mileage is completed
with the stamp and signature of the
servicing workshop.
Make sure that the Service and
Warranty Booklet is completed
correctly as continuous proof of
service is essential if any warranty or
goodwill claims are to be met, and is
also a benefit when selling the
vehicle.
Service interval with remaining
engine oil life duration
The service interval is based on
several parameters depending on
usage.
The engine oil life system lets you
know when to change the engine oil.
Service display 3 81.

Only use products that have been
tested and approved. Damage
resulting from the use of nonapproved materials will not be
covered by the warranty.
9 Warning
Operating materials are
hazardous and could be
poisonous. Handle with care. Pay
attention to information given on
the containers.
Engine oil
Engine oil is identified by its quality
and also its viscosity. Quality is more
important than viscosity when
selecting which engine oil to use.
The new engine oil GM-Dexos 2 is of
the highest quality available at the
moment. If it is unavailable, engine
oils of other listed qualities have to be
used.
Engine oil quality for European
service schedules
GM-Dexos 2 = Petrol and diesel
engines
GM-LL-A-025 = Petrol engines
GM-LL-B-025 = Diesel engines
Engine oil quality for international
service schedules
GM-Dexos 2 = Petrol and diesel

Engine oil for engine A20DTR
Use exclusively engine oil with the
quality GM-Dexos 2 or GM-LL-B-025
and with the viscosity 0W-40. Use of
engine oil with other quality and
viscosity is expressly forbidden.
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.
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.
198
Service and maintenance
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 excellent
corrosion protection and frost
protection down to approx. -28 °C.
This concentration should be
maintained all year round.
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
Use only brake fluid which exceeds
DOT4 requirements.
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.

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
255
■ 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.
