have been approved for the vehicle.
Be careful not to cover the airbags.
Airbag deactivation
The side airbag system consists of an
airbag in each front seat backrest.
This can be identified by the word
AIRBAG.
The side airbag system is triggered in
the event of a side impact of a certain
severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
The front passenger airbag system
has to be deactivated if a child
restraint system is to be fitted on this
seat.
The front passenger airbag system
can be deactivated via the settings in
the Info-Display.
Deactivate the airbag system as
follows:
1. Press SET ESC.
2. Press R or S until Passenger Bag
Off is displayed.
3. Press SET ESC.
4. Press R or S until the
confirmation request YES
appears in the display.
5. Press SET ESC to confirm.

Front passenger seat airbags are
deactivated and will not inflate in the
event of a collision. Control indicator
* illuminates continuously in the
instrument cluster. A child restraint
system can be installed in
accordance with the chart Child
restraint installation locations 3 40.
9 Danger
Risk of fatal injury for a child using
a child restraint system on a seat
with activated front passenger
airbag.
Risk of fatal injury for an adult
person on a seat with deactivated
front passenger airbag.
As long as the control indicator * is
not illuminated, the front passenger
airbag system will inflate in the event
of a collision.
If control indicators * and v are
illuminated at the same time, there is
a system failure. The status of the
system is not discernible, therefore
no person is allowed to occupy the
front passenger seat. Contact a
workshop immediately.
Change status only when the vehicle
is stopped.
Status remains until the next change.
Control indicator for airbag
deactivation 3 59.
Child restraints
Child restraint systems
We recommend the Vauxhall child
restraint system which is tailored
specifically to the vehicle.
When a child restraint system is being
used, pay attention to the following
usage and installation instructions
and also those supplied with the child
restraint system.
Always comply with local or national
regulations. In some countries, the
use of child restraint systems is
forbidden on certain seats.
9 Warning
When using a child restraint
system on the front passenger
seat, the airbag systems for the
front passenger seat must be
Seats, restraints
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.
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 150 cm are only
allowed to travel in a restraint system
that is suitable for the child. Suitable
are restraint systems that comply with
ECE 44-03 or ECE 44-04. Since a
proper position of the belt is rarely
possible with a child that is smaller
than 150 cm, 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 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 evenly
distributed and placed as far
forward as possible. If objects can
be stacked, the heavier objects
should be placed at the bottom.
■ Secure objects with lashing straps
attached to lashing eyes 3 48.
■ Secure loose objects in load
compartment to prevent sliding.
■ 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.
■ 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 vehicle and
cause personal injury or damage
to the load or car.
■ The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (see identification
plate 3 131) and the EC kerb
weight.
To calculate the payload, enter the
data for your vehicle in the Weights
table at the front of this manual.
The EC kerb weight includes
weights for the driver (68 kg),
luggage (7 kg) and all fluids (tank
90 % full).
Optional equipment and
accessories increase the kerb
weight.
■ Driving with a roof load increases
the sensitivity of the vehicle to
cross-winds and has a detrimental
49
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 (which
includes the weight of the roof rack)
is 100 kg. The roof load is the
combined weight of the roof rack
and the load.

Control of the vehicle
New vehicle running-in
Never coast with engine not
running (except during
Autostop)
Many systems will not function in this
situation (e.g. brake servo unit, power
steering). Driving in this manner is a
danger to yourself and others. All
systems function during an Autostop,
but there will be a controlled reduction
in power steering assist and vehicle
speed is reduced.
Stop-start system 3 80.
Pedals
To ensure the pedal travel is
uninhibited, there must be no mats in
the area of the pedals.
Do not brake unnecessarily hard for
the first few journeys.
During the first drive, smoke may
occur because of wax and oil
evaporating off the exhaust system.
Park the vehicle in the open for a
while after the first drive and avoid
inhaling the fumes.
During the running-in period fuel and
engine oil consumption may be
higher and the cleaning process of
the diesel particle filter may take
place more often. Autostop may be
inhibited to allow for charging the
battery.

Stop-start system
Deactivation
The engine will be switched off while
the ignition stays on.
Deactivate the stop-start system
manually by pressing the ^ button in
the centre console. The deactivation
is indicated by the LED in the button
illuminating.
An Autostop is indicated when ^
flashes in the driver information
centre.
The stop-start system helps to save
fuel and to reduce the exhaust
emissions. When conditions allow, it
switches off the engine as soon as the
vehicle is at a low speed or at a
standstill, e.g. at a traffic light or in a
traffic jam. It starts the engine
automatically as soon as the clutch is
depressed. A battery sensor ensures
that an Autostop is only performed if
the battery is sufficiently charged for
a restart.
Activation
The stop-start system is available as
soon as the engine is started, the
vehicle starts-off and the conditions
as stated below in this section are
fulfilled.
Autostop
If the vehicle is at a low speed or at a
standstill, activate an Autostop as
follows:
■ Depress the clutch pedal
■ set the lever in neutral
■ release the clutch pedal
Caution
The steering assist can be
reduced during an Autostop.
Conditions for an Autostop
The stop-start system checks if each
of the following conditions is fulfilled.
Otherwise an Autostop will be
inhibited.
Driving and operating
■ The stop-start system is not
manually deactivated
■ the driver's door is closed or the
driver's seat belt is fastened
■ the battery is sufficiently charged
and in good condition
■ the engine is warmed up
■ the ambient temperature is not too
low
■ the climate control system does not
inhibit an Autostop
■ the self-cleaning function of the
diesel particle filter is not active
■ the vehicle has moved since the
last Autostop
■ the brake vacuum is sufficient
■ the windscreen wipers are
operating at fast speed
■ reverse gear is selected
Ambient temperature near to the
freezing point can inhibit an Autostop.
Certain settings of the climate control
system may inhibit an Autostop. See
climate control chapter for more
details.
For manual transmission automated
vehicles, an Autostop may be
inhibited until a speed of about 6 mph
is reached.

■ the driver's seat belt is unfastened
and the driver's door is opened
■ three minutes have elapsed since
the engine switched off
If an electrical accessory, e.g. a
portable CD player, is connected to
the power outlet, a brief power drop
during restart might be noticeable.
Parking
■ Do not park the vehicle on an easily
ignitable surface. The high
temperature of the exhaust system
could ignite the surface.
■ Always apply parking brake. Apply
manual parking brake without
pressing release button. Apply as
firmly as possible on downhill or
uphill slopes. Depress the foot
brake at the same time to reduce

■ Lock the vehicle.
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
take up to 25 minutes. Typically it
needs 15 minutes. Autostop is not
available and fuel consumption may
be higher during this period. The
emission of smells and smoke during
this process is normal.
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 control indicator
[. Simultaneously a message
may appear in the Driver Information
Centre.
[ illuminates when diesel particle
filter is full. Start cleaning process as
soon as possible.
Cleaning process
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.
Driving and operating
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.
The control indicator
[ extinguishes as soon as the
self-cleaning operation is complete.
Catalytic converter
The catalytic converter reduces the
amount of harmful substances in the
exhaust gases.
Caution
Fuel grades other than those listed
on pages 3 93, 3 133 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.
83
Manual transmission
In the event of misfiring, uneven
engine running, a reduction in engine
performance or other unusual
problems, have the cause of the fault
rectified by a workshop as soon as
possible. In an emergency, driving
can be continued for a short period,
keeping vehicle speed and engine
speed low.

display. Continued driving is possible
provided the vehicle is driven with
care and anticipation. A warning
message may appear in the driver
information centre in conjunction with
an audible warning.
Have the cause of the fault remedied
by a workshop.
87
Brakes
The brake system comprises two
independent brake circuits.
If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can
still be braked using the other brake
circuit. However, braking effect is
achieved only when the brake pedal
is depressed firmly. Considerably
more force is needed for this. The
braking distance is extended. Seek
the assistance of a workshop before
continuing your journey.
When the engine is not running, the
support of the brake servo unit
disappears once the brake pedal has
been depressed once or twice.
Braking effect is not reduced, but
braking requires significantly greater
force. It is especially important to bear
this in mind when being towed.
Control indicator R 3 60.
Antilock brake system
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
88
Driving and operating
ABS starts to regulate brake pressure
as soon as a wheel shows a tendency
to lock. The vehicle remains
steerable, even during hard braking.
ABS control is made apparent
through a pulse in the brake pedal
and the noise of the regulation
process.
For optimum braking, keep the brake
pedal fully depressed throughout the
braking process, despite the fact that
the pedal is pulsating. Do not reduce
the pressure on the pedal.
After starting off the system performs
a self-test which may be audible.

is required. Maximum brake force is
automatically reduced when the
brake pedal is released.
Hill start assist
Always apply parking brake firmly
without operating the release button,
and apply as firmly as possible on a
downhill or uphill slope.
The system helps prevent unintended
movement when driving away on
inclines.
When releasing the foot brake after
stopping on an incline, the brakes
remain on for a further two seconds.
Driving and operating

Ride control systems
Traction Control system
The Anti-Slip Regulator (ASR) is a
component of the Electronic Stability
Control system.
ASR improves driving stability when
necessary, regardless of the type of
road surface or tyre grip, by
preventing the drive wheels from
spinning.
As soon as the drive wheels starts to
spin, engine output is reduced and
the wheel spinning the most is braked
individually. This considerably
improves the driving stability of the
vehicle on slippery road surfaces.
ASR is operational as soon as the
control indicator x extinguishes.
When ASR is active x flashes.

Parking assist
Fault
In the event of a fault in the system,
r illuminates and a message is
displayed in the driver information
centre.
Additionally, r illuminates and a
vehicle message is displayed in the
driver information centre if a
malfunction of the system due to
temporary conditions like snow
covered sensors is detected.
Important hints for using the
parking assist systems
9 Warning
The parking assist makes parking
easier by measuring the distance
between the vehicle and obstacles,
and giving acoustic signals. It is the
driver, however, who bears full
responsibility for the parking
manoeuvre.
The system consists of four ultrasonic
parking sensors in the rear bumper.
Control indicator r 3 61.
Under certain circumstances,
various reflective surfaces on
objects or clothing as well as
external noise sources may cause
the system to fail to detect
obstacles.
Special attention has to be paid to
low obstacles which can damage
the lower part of the bumper. If
such obstacles leave the detection
area of the sensors during
approach of the vehicle, a
continuous warning tone will
sound.
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 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 these vehicles
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 will not avoid a
collision with objects which are out
of the detection range of the
sensors.
Driving and operating
Notice
The parking assist system
automatically detects factory-fitted
towing equipment. It is deactivated
when the connector is plugged in.
The sensor may detect a nonexistent object (echo disturbance)
caused by external acoustic or
mechanical disturbances.
Fuel
93
Caution
Fuel for petrol engines
Only use unleaded fuel that complies
with 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
E DIN 51626-1.
Use fuel with the recommended
octane rating 3 133. Use of fuel with
too low an octane rating can reduce
engine power and torque and slightly
increases fuel consumption.
Caution
Use of fuel that does not comply to
EN 228 or similar can lead to
deposits or engine damage and
loss of warranty.
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 EN 590.
In countries outside the European
Union use Euro-Diesel fuel with a
sulphur concentration below 50 ppm.
Caution
Use of fuel that does not comply
with EN 590 or similar can lead to
engine power loss, increased
wear or engine damage and loss
of warranty.
Do not use marine diesel oils, heating
oils, Aquazole and similar dieselwater emulsions. Diesel fuels must
not be diluted with fuels for petrol
engines.
94
Driving and operating
Fuel for natural gas
operation
Use natural gas with a methane
content of approx. 78 - 99 %. L-gas
(low) has approx. 78 - 87 % and H-gas
(high) has approx. 87 - 99 %. Biogas
with the same methane content can
also be used if it has been chemically
prepared and desulphurised.
Only use natural gas or biogas that
complies with DIN 51624.
Liquid gas or LPG must not be used.
Fuel selector
Pressing button Y in the centre
console switches between petrol and
natural gas operation. The LED 1
status shows the current operating
mode.
1 off
= natural gas
operation.
1 illuminates = petrol operation.
As soon as the natural gas tanks are
empty, petrol operation is
automatically engaged. Control
indicator Y illiminates in the driver
information centre until the ignition is
switched off.
A slight loss of power and torque can
be expected in petrol operation. You
must therefore adapt your driving
style (e.g. during overtaking
manoeuvres) and vehicle loads (e.g.
towing loads) accordingly.
Every six months run the petrol tank
down until control indicator §
illuminates and refuel. This is
necessary to maintain fuel quality as
well as system function necessary for
petrol operation.
Fill the tank completely at regular
intervals to prevent corrosion in the
tank.
Refuelling
Fuel filler flap is located at left rear
side of vehicle.
9 Danger
Before refuelling, switch off engine
and any external heaters with
combustion chambers. Switch off
any mobile phones.
Follow the operating and safety
instructions of the filling station
when refuelling.
Caution
When refuelling, do not open the
left-hand sliding side door with the
fuel cap open. To avoid damage,
ensure the fuel cap is closed while
opening/closing the sliding side
door.
Driving and operating
Close the flap.
9 Danger
Fuel filler cap
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.
Caution
In case of misfuelling, do not
switch on ignition.
Release the fuel filler flap by pulling
the flap.
Insert key into fuel filler cap and turn
to the left.
To remove fuel filler cap, rotate
anticlockwise
95
Only use genuine fuel filler caps.
Diesel-engined vehicles have special
fuel filler caps.
The fuel filler cap can be retained in
the bracket on the fuel filler flap.
For refuelling, fully insert the pump
nozzle and switch it on.
After automatic cut-off, it can be
topped up with max. two doses of fuel.
Caution
Wipe off any overflowing fuel
immediately.
To close, replace fuel filler cap and
turn to the right.
Turn key clockwise and remove.
96
Driving and operating
Towing
General information
Only use towing equipment that has
been approved for your vehicle.
Vehicles with natural gas engine may
require special towing equipment.
Entrust retrofitting of towing
equipment to a workshop. It may be
necessary to make changes that
affect the cooling system, heat
shields or other equipment.
Fitting of towing equipment could
cover the opening of the towing eye.
If this is the case use the coupling ball
bar for towing. Always keep the
coupling ball bar in the vehicle.
Driving characteristics and
towing tips
Before attaching a trailer, lubricate
the coupling ball. However, do not do
so if a stabiliser, which acts on the
coupling ball, is being used to reduce
snaking movements.
For trailers with low driving stability
and caravan trailers with a permitted
gross vehicle weight of more than
1300 kg the use of a stabiliser is
strongly recommended when driving
above 50 mph.
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 3 138.
Trailer towing
Trailer loads
The permissible trailer loads are
vehicle and engine-dependent
maximum values which must not be
exceeded. The actual trailer load is
the difference between the actual
gross weight of the trailer and the
actual coupling socket load with the
trailer coupled.
The permissible trailer loads are
specified in the vehicle documents. In
general, they are valid for gradients
up to max. 12 %.
The permitted trailer load applies up
to the specified incline and up to an
altitude of 1000 metres above sea
level. Since engine power decreases
as altitude increases due to the air
becoming thinner, therefore reducing
climbing ability, the permissible gross
train weight also decreases by 10 %
for every 1000 metres of additional
altitude. The gross train weight does
not have to be reduced when driving
on roads with slight inclines (less than
8 %, e.g. motorways).
The permissible gross train weight
must not be exceeded. This weight is
specified on the identification plate
3 131.
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.
Driving and operating
The maximum permissible vertical
coupling load (75 kg) is specified on
the towing equipment identification
plate and in the vehicle documents.
Always aim for the maximum load,
especially in the case of heavy
trailers. The vertical coupling load
should never fall below 25 kg.
Rear axle load
The permissible axle loads (see
identification plate or vehicle
documents) must not be exceeded.

Wheels and tyres
Tyre condition, wheel condition
Drive over edges slowly and at right
angles if possible. Driving over sharp
edges can cause tyre and wheel
damage. Do not trap tyres on the kerb
when parking.
Regularly check the wheels for
damage. Seek the assistance of a
workshop in the event of damage or
unusual wear.
Winter tyres
Winter tyres improve driving safety at
temperatures below 7 °C and should
therefore be fitted on all wheels.
Tyres of size 185/65 R15,
195/65 R15 and 195/60 R16 C are
permitted as winter tyres.
In accordance with country-specific
regulations, affix the speed sticker in
the driver's field of view.
Tyre designations
E.g. 215/60 R 16 95 H
215 = Tyre width, mm
60 = Cross-section ratio (tyre
height to tyre width), %
R
= Belt type: Radial
RF = Type: RunFlat
C
= Cargo or commercial use
16 = Wheel diameter, inches
95 = Load index e.g. 95 is
equivalent to 690 kg
H
= Speed code letter
Speed code letter:
Q = up to 100 mph
S = up to 112 mph
T = up to 118 mph
H = up to 130 mph
V = up to 150 mph
W = up to 168 mph
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.
Tyre pressure 3 138 and on the label
on the 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.
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.
9 Warning
If the pressure is too low, this can
result in considerable tyre warmup and internal damage, leading to
tread separation and even to tyre
blow-out at high speeds.
Tread depth
Check tread depth at regular
intervals.
Vehicle care
Tyres should be replaced for safety
reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm
(4 mm for winter tyres).
Tyres age, even if they are not used.
We recommend tyre replacement
every 6 years.
Changing tyre and wheel
size
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 periodically. Ensure that
the direction of rotation of the wheels
is the same as before.
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

Jump starting
Directional tyres
Do not start with quick charger.
A vehicle with a discharged battery
can be started using jump leads and
the battery of another vehicle.
Fit directional tyres such that they roll
in the direction of travel. The rolling
direction is indicated by a symbol
(e.g. an arrow) on the sidewall.
The following applies to tyres fitted
opposing the rolling direction:
■ Driveability may be affected. Have
the defective tyre renewed or
repaired as soon as possible.
■ Drive particularly carefully on wet
and snow-covered road surfaces.
9 Warning
Be extremely careful when starting
with jump leads. Any deviation
from the following instructions can
lead to injuries or damage caused
by battery explosion or damage to
the electrical systems of both
vehicles.
9 Warning
Avoid contact of the battery with
eyes, skin, fabrics and painted
surfaces. The fluid contains
sulphuric acid which can cause
injuries and damage in the event
of direct contact.
■ Never expose the battery to naked
flames or sparks.
■ A discharged battery can already
freeze at a temperature of 0 °C.
Defrost the frozen battery before
connecting jump leads.
■ Wear eye protection and protective
clothing when handling a battery.
■ Use a booster battery with the
same voltage (12 Volts). Its
capacity (Ah) must not be much
less than that of the discharged
battery.
■ Use jump leads with insulated
terminals and a cross section of at
least 16 mm2 (25 mm2 for diesel
engines).
■ Do not disconnect the discharged
battery from the vehicle.
■ Switch off all unnecessary electrical
consumers.
■ Do not lean over the battery during
jump starting.
■ Do not allow the terminals of one
lead to touch those of the other
lead.
Vehicle care
■ The vehicles must not come into
contact with each other during the
jump starting process.
■ Apply the parking brake,
transmission in neutral.
Lead connection order:
1. Connect the red lead to the
positive terminal of the booster
battery.
2. Connect the other end of the red
lead to the positive terminal of the
discharged battery.
3. Connect the black lead to the
negative terminal of the booster
battery.
4. Connect the other end of the black
lead to a vehicle grounding point,
such as the engine block or an
engine mounting bolt. Connect as
far away from the discharged
battery as possible, however at
least 60 cm.
Route the leads so that they cannot
catch on rotating parts in the engine
compartment.
To start the engine:
1. Start the engine of the vehicle
providing the jump.
2. After 5 minutes, start the other
engine. Start attempts should be
made for no longer than
15 seconds at an interval of
1 minute.
3. Allow both engines to idle for
approx. 3 minutes with the leads
connected.
123
4. Switch on electrical consumers
(e.g. headlights, heated rear
window) of the vehicle receiving
the jump start.
5. Reverse above sequence exactly
when removing leads.
124
Vehicle care
Towing
Towing the vehicle
Release the cap by carefully lifting
with a screwdriver. To prevent
damage it is recommended to place a
cloth between the screwdriver and
the frame.
The towing eye is stowed with the
vehicle tools 3 113.
Screw in the towing eye as far as it will
go until it stops in a horizontal
position.
Attach a tow rope – or better still a tow
rod – to the towing eye.
The towing eye must only be used for
towing and not for recovering the
vehicle.
Switch on ignition to release steering
wheel lock and to permit operation of
brake lights, horn and windscreen
wiper.
Transmission in neutral.
If neutral cannot be selected on
vehicles with manual transmission
automated, the vehicle must only be
towed with the drive wheels raised off
the ground.
Switch on the hazard warning
flashers on both vehicles.
To prevent the entry of exhaust gases
from the towing vehicle, switch on the
air recirculation and close the
windows.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye.
Insert cap.
Towing another vehicle
Caution
Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily.
Excessive tractive force can
damage the vehicle.
When the engine is not running,
considerably more force is needed to
brake and steer.
Insert a screwdriver in the slot at the
side of the cap. Release the cap by
carefully levering the screwdriver. To
prevent damage it is recommended to
place a cloth between the screwdriver
and the frame.
Vehicle care
The towing eye is stowed with the
vehicle tools 3 113.
Screw in the towing eye as far as it will
go until it stops in a horizontal
position.
Attach a tow rope – or even better a
tow bar – to the towing eye.
The towing eye must only be used for
towing and not for recovering a
vehicle.
Caution
Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily.
Excessive tractive force can
damage the vehicle.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye.
Insert cap.
Appearance care
Exterior care
Locks
The locks are lubricated at the factory
using a high quality lock cylinder
grease. Use de-icing agent only when
absolutely necessary, as this has a
degreasing effect and impairs lock
function. After using de-icing agent,
have the locks regreased by a
workshop.
Washing
The paintwork of your vehicle is
exposed to environmental influences.
Wash and wax your vehicle regularly.
When using automatic 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
cause paint damage.
125
If using a vehicle wash, comply with
the vehicle wash manufacturer's
instructions. The windscreen wiper
and rear window wiper must be
switched off. Remove antenna and
external accessories such as roof
racks etc.
If you wash your vehicle by hand,
make sure that the insides of the
wheel housings are also thoroughly
rinsed out.
Clean edges and folds on opened
doors and the bonnet as well as the
areas they cover.
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.
126
Vehicle care
Exterior lights
Headlight and other light covers are
made of plastic. Do not use any
abrasive or caustic agents, do not use
an ice scraper, and do not clean them
dry.
Polishing and waxing
Wax the vehicle regularly (at the
latest when water no longer beads).
Otherwise, the paintwork will dry out.
Polishing is necessary only if the paint
has become dull or if solid deposits
have become attached to it.
Paintwork polish with silicone forms a
protective film, making waxing
unnecessary.
Plastic body parts must not be treated
with wax or polishing agents.
Windows and windscreen wiper
blades
Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois
leather together with window cleaner
and insect remover.
When cleaning the rear window,
make sure the heating element inside
is not damaged.
For mechanical removal of ice, use a
sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the
scraper firmly against the glass so
that no dirt can get under it and
scratch the glass.
Clean smearing wiper blades with a
soft cloth and window cleaner.
Glass panel
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 glass panel.
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.
Natural gas system
Do not direct the steam jet or highpressure jet towards natural gas
system components. It is particularly
important to protect the natural gas
Vehicle care
tank and the pressure valves on the
vehicle underbody and the bulkhead
in the engine compartment.
These components must not be
treated using chemical cleaners or
preservatives.
Have components of the natural gas
system cleaned by a workshop
authorised to carry out maintenance
of natural gas vehicles.
Towing equipment
Do not clean the coupling ball bar with
a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
Interior care
Interior and upholstery
Only clean the vehicle interior,
including the instrument panel fascia
and panelling, with a dry cloth or
interior cleaner.
Clean the leather upholstery with
clear water and a soft cloth. In case of
heavy soiling, use leather 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
Plastic and rubber parts can be
cleaned with the same cleaner as
used to clean the body. Use interior
cleaner if necessary. Do not use any
other agent. Avoid solvents and petrol
in particular. Do not use highpressure jet cleaners.

specifications will not be covered by
the warranty.
9 Warning
Operating materials are
hazardous and could be
poisonous. Handle with care. Pay
attention to information given on
the containers.
Engine oil
Engine oil is identified by its quality
and its viscosity. Quality is more
important than viscosity when
selecting which engine oil to use. The
oil quality ensures e.g. engine
cleanliness, wear protection and oil
ageing control, whereas viscosity
grade gives information on the oil's
thickness over a temperature range.
Dexos is the newest engine oil quality
that provides optimum protection for
gasoline and diesel engines. If it is
unavailable, engine oils of other listed
qualities have to be used.
Recommendations for gasoline
engines are also valid for
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
fuelled engines.
Engine oil quality
dexos 2 = All petrol and diesel
engines
Alternative qualities if dexos is not
available:
GM-LL-A-025 = Petrol engines
GM-LL-B-025 = Diesel engines
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.
129
Use of engine oil with only
ACEA A1/B1 or only A5/B5 quality is
prohibited, since it can cause longterm engine damage under certain
operating conditions.
Additional engine oil additives
The use of additional engine oil
additives could cause damage and
invalidate the warranty.
Engine oil viscosity
Use only engine oil viscosity grades
SAE 5W-30 (diesel engines) or
5W-40 (petrol, CNG engines).
The SAE viscosity grade 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 the low temperature
viscosity and the second figure the
high temperature viscosity.
Coolant and antifreeze
Use only antifreeze approved for the
vehicle, consult a workshop.
130
Service and maintenance
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. The use of
additional coolant additives that
intend to give additional corrosion
protection or seal against minor leaks
can cause function problems. Liability
for consequences resulting from the
use of additional coolant additives will
be rejected.
Brake and clutch fluid
Only use high-performance brake
fluid approved for the vehicle, consult
a workshop.
Over time, brake fluid absorbs
moisture which will reduce braking
effectiveness. The brake fluid should
therefore be replaced at the specified
interval.
Brake fluid should be stored in a
sealed container to avoid water
absorption.
Ensure brake fluid does not become
contaminated.

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 modules in your vehicle
systems that have an event data
recording function such as the airbag
control module.
The systems may record diagnostic
data about the condition of the vehicle
(e.g. oil level or vehicle mileage) and
information how it was operated (e.g.
engine speed, brake application and
seat belt usage).
To read this data, special equipment
and access to the vehicle is required.
Some diagnostic data is electronically
fed into Vauxhall global systems
when the vehicle is serviced in a
workshop, in order to document the
service history of the vehicle. This
enables the workshop to offer you
efficient maintenance and repair,
tailored to your individual vehicle,
each time you bring it back to the
workshop.
The manufacturer will not access
driver's behaviour related information
about a crash event or share it with
others except:
■ with the consent of the vehicle
owner or, if the vehicle is leased, 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
Customer information
In addition, the manufacturer may use
the collected or received diagnostic
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
Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID)
RFID technology is used in some
vehicles for functions such as tyre
pressure monitoring and ignition
system security. It is also used in
connection with conveniences such
as radio remote controls for door
locking/unlocking and starting, and invehicle transmitters for garage door
openers. RFID technology in
Vauxhall vehicles does not use or
record personal information or link
with any other Vauxhall system
containing personal information.
