Beyond the warning required by
ECE R94.02, for safety reasons
never use a forward-facing child
restraint system on the passenger
seat with an active front airbag.
9 Danger
Do not use a child restraint system
on the passenger seat with active
front airbag.
The airbag label is located on both
sides of the front passenger sun visor.
Airbag deactivation 3 61.
Front airbag system
The front airbag system consists of
one airbag in the steering wheel and
one in the instrument panel on the
front passenger side. These can be
identified by the word AIRBAG.
Additionally, there is a warning label
on the side of the instrument panel,
visible when the front passenger door
is open, or on the front passenger sun
visor.
The front airbag system is triggered in
the event of a front-end impact of a
certain severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the upper body and head of
the front seat occupants
considerably.
9 Warning
Optimum protection is only
provided when the seat is in the
proper position.
Seat position 3 47.
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Seats, restraints
61
Airbag deactivation
Fit the seat belt correctly and
engage securely. Only then is the
airbag able to protect.
The front passenger airbag system
must be deactivated if a child restraint
system is to be fitted on this seat. The
side airbags, the belt pretensioners
and all driver airbag systems will
remain active.
Side airbag system
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the head and upper body in
the event of a side-on collision
considerably.
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.
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Notice
Only use protective seat covers that
have been approved for the vehicle.
Be careful not to cover the airbags.
The front passenger airbag system
can be deactivated via a keyoperated switch on the right side of
the instrument panel.
62
Seats, restraints
Use the ignition key to choose the
position:
*OFF : front passenger airbag is
deactivated and will not
inflate in the event of a
collision. Control indicator
*OFF illuminates
continuously in the centre
console. A child restraint
system can be installed in
accordance with the chart
Child restraint installation
locations 3 64. No adult
person is allowed to occupy
the front passenger seat.
VON : front passenger airbag is
active. A child restraint
system must not be
installed.
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.
Child restraints
Child restraint systems
If the control indicator V illuminates,
the front passenger airbag system will
inflate in the event of a collision.
If both control indicators 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 with the ignition off.
Status remains until the next change.
Control indicator for airbag
deactivation 3 89.
We recommend the following child
restraint systems which are tailored
specifically to the vehicle:
● Group 0, Group 0+
Vauxhall Baby Safe, with or
without ISOFIX base, for children
up to 13 kg
● Group I
Vauxhall Duo ISOFIX, for
children from 9 kg to 18 kg
● Group II, Group III
Vauxhall Kid, for children from
15 kg up to 36 kg
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 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.
Airbag deactivation 3 61.
Airbag label 3 57.
9 Warning
When using child restraint
systems on the rear seats, ensure
that the backrests are engaged
securely in upright position.
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.
Suitable are restraint systems that
comply with valid UN ECE
regulations. Check local laws and
regulations for mandatory use of child
restraint systems.
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, see following
tables.
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 affix anything on the child
restraint systems and do not cover
them with any other materials.
63
A child restraint system which has
been subjected to stress in an
accident must be replaced.

illuminates continuously when the
assist is activated, the blue one 7
illuminates when high beam is on.
Control indicator l 3 94.
Deactivation
Push indicator lever once. It is also
deactivated when front fog lights are
switched on.
Intelligent light ranging uses the
properties of Bi-Xenon headlights to
extend the light range of the low beam
by up to 400 metres and additionally
activates automatic high beam
without dazzling or disturbing
oncoming or preceding traffic.
High beam is deactivated and the low
beam light range is reduced to avoid
dazzling when the following
restrictions are detected by the front
camera in the windscreen:
● A preceding vehicle is
recognised.
● An oncoming vehicle is
recognised.
● Urban areas are entered.
● It is foggy or snowy.
If there are no restrictions detected,
the system switches back to high
beam.
When the system is active, the front
camera monitors the area ahead of
the vehicle and ensures an optimum
light distribution for maximum driver
vision during almost all conditions.
Intelligent light ranging with automatic
high beam activation therefore
reduces the difference between
conventional low and high beam
without drastic changes in lightrange, distribution and intensity.
Lighting
A special topographical evaluation
function detects preceding vehicles
on hills or slopes by recognising the
rear light moving ahead. The system
adjusts the height of the light range to
ensure optimum illumination on the
road ahead without dazzling.
Activation
Automatic high beam activation
operates at a speed above 25 mph
and deactivates below 12 mph.
Intelligent light ranging operates
above 35 mph.
The green control indicator l
illuminates continuously when the
function is activated, the blue one 7
illuminates when high beam switches
on automatically.
Deactivation
Push indicator lever once. It is also
deactivated when front fog lights are
switched on.
Fault in Adaptive forward lighting
system
When the system detects a failure in
the Adaptive forward lighting system,
the system moves to a preset position
to avoid dazzling of oncoming traffic.
If this is not possible, the affected
headlight will be automatically
switched off. In any case, one
headlight will stay on. A warning is
displayed in the Driver Information
Centre.

Control of the vehicle
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 3 138.
Idle boost
If charging of the battery is required
due to battery condition, the power
output of the generator has to be
increased. This will be achieved by an
idle boost which may be audible. A
message is displayed in the Driver
Information Centre.
Pedals
Ground clearance
To ensure the pedal travel is
uninhibited, there must be no mats in
the area of the pedals.
Use only floor mats, which fit properly
and are fixed by the retainers on the
driver's side.
Due to the reduced ground clearance,
the vehicle can be damaged
depending on the vehicle loading and
appearance of the ground. Take
special care and drive slowly on steep
driveways, entry and exit of parking
garages, high kerbs and uneven
surfaces. If possible, drive diagonally
with one wheel after another when
running over kerbs or uneven
surfaces.
Steering
If power steering assist is lost
because the engine stops or due to a
system malfunction, the vehicle can
be steered but may require increased
effort.
Control indicator c 3 91.
Caution
Vehicles equipped with hydraulic
power steering:
If the steering wheel is turned until
it reaches the end of its travel, and
is held in that position for more
than 15 seconds, damage may
occur to the power steering
system and there may be loss of
power steering assist.

Overrun cut-off
This function controls the engine
starting procedure. The driver does
not have to hold the key in position 3.
Once applied, the system will go on
starting automatically until the engine
is running. Because of the checking
procedure, the engine starts running
after a short delay.
Possible reasons for a non-starting
engine:
● Clutch pedal not operated
(manual transmission).
● Brake pedal not operated or
selector lever not in P or N
(automatic transmission).
● Timeout occurred.
The fuel supply is automatically cut off
during overrun, i.e. when the vehicle
is driven with a gear engaged but
accelerator is released.
Turbo engine warm-up
Upon start-up, engine available
torque may be limited for a short time,
especially when the engine
temperature is cold. The limitation is
to allow the lubrication system to fully
protect the engine.
Stop-start system
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 vehicle battery sensor
ensures that an Autostop is only
performed if the vehicle 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

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 between 7 and 12 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.

The selective catalytic reduction
(BlueInjection) is a method to
substantially reduce the nitrogen
oxides in the exhaust emission. This
is achieved by injecting a Diesel
Exhaust Fluid (DEF) into the exhaust
system.
The designation of this fluid is AdBlue
Ⓡ1). It is a non-toxic, non-flammable,
colourless and odourless fluid which
consists of 32% urea and 68% water.
9 Warning
Avoid contact of your eyes or skin
with AdBlue.
In case of eye or skin contact,
rinse off with water.
Registered trademark of the Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V. (VDA).

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 90.
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.

TC 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.
TC is operational after each engine
start as soon as the control indicator
b extinguishes.

Within each manually selected driving
mode SPORT, TOUR or NORMAL,
the Drive Mode Control detects and
analyses continuously the real driving
characteristic, responses by the
driver, and the active dynamic state of
the vehicle. If necessary, the control
unit of Drive Mode Control
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 Drive Mode Control
detects a sporty driving behaviour,
Drive Mode Control changes several
settings of the NORMAL mode into
sporty settings. The Drive Mode
Control changes to SPORT mode in
case of very sporty driving behaviour.
If, for another example, TOUR mode
is selected and whilst driving on a
winding road a sudden hard brake is
necessary, Drive Mode Control will
detect the dynamic vehicle condition
and changes the settings for
suspension to SPORT mode to
increase vehicle stability.
When the driving characteristic or the
dynamic vehicle state returns to the
former state, Drive Mode Control will
change the settings to the
preselected driving mode.

The system warns the driver with
acoustic signals against potentially
hazardous obstacles behind and in
front of the vehicle. Depending on
which side of the vehicle is closer to
an obstacle, you will hear acoustic
warning signals on the respective
side of the vehicle. The interval
between the sounds becomes shorter
as the vehicle gets closer to that
obstacle. When the distance is less
than approx. 30 cm, the sound is
continuous.
Additionally, the distance to obstacles
is shown in the Driver Information
Centre 3 95.
The distance to a front and rear
obstacle is indicated by changing
distance lines around the vehicle.
Rear obstacles are indicated
acoustically and visually at the same

Fuel consumption - CO2Emissions
The fuel consumption (combined) is
within a range of 39 to 54 mpg.
The CO2 emission (combined) is
within a range of 172 to 138 g/km.
For the values specific to your
vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of
Conformity provided with your vehicle
or other national registration
documents.
General information
The official fuel consumption and
specific CO2 emission figures quoted
relate to the EU base model with
standard equipment.
Fuel consumption data and CO2
emission data are determined
according to regulation
R (EC) No. 715/2007 (in the latest
applicable version), taking into
consideration the vehicle weight in
running order, as specified by the
regulation.
The figures are provided only for the
purpose of comparison between
different vehicle variants and must
not be taken as a guarantee for the
actual fuel consumption of a
particular vehicle. Additional

dependent on personal driving style
as well as road and traffic conditions.
181
Trailer hitch
General information
Only use towing equipment that has
been approved for your vehicle.
Entrust retrofitting of towing
equipment to a workshop. It may be
necessary to make changes that
affect the cooling system, heat
shields or other equipment.
The bulb outage detection function for
trailer brake light cannot detect a
partial bulb outage, e.g. in case of 4 x
5 Watt bulbs, the function only detects
lamp outage when only a single
5 Watt lamp remains or none remain.
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.
182
Driving and operating
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
1200 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 3 247.
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
3 236.
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 (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.

The bag with the coupling ball bar is
placed near the tyre repair kit box
under the load floor cover.
The strap is directed around the
threaded bolt under the tyre repair kit
box. Wrap the strap around the
coupling ball bar and tighten the strap
to secure the bag.
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
100 kg, the gross vehicle weight
rating may be exceeded by 100 kg. If
the permissible rear axle load is
exceeded, a maximum speed of
60 mph applies.

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.
All tyre sizes are permitted as winter
tyres 3 247.
Use tyre size 225/55 R17 only as
winter tyres.
On vehicles with Diesel engines, no
steel rims and only special, vehicleapproved alloy wheels are permitted.
In accordance with country-specific
regulations, affix the speed sticker in
the driver's field of view.

the vehicle.
Performance 3 242.
Directional tyres
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.
Tyre pressure monitoring
system
The tyre pressure monitoring system
checks the pressure of all four tyres
once a minute when vehicle speed
exceeds a certain limit.
211
Caution
Tyre pressure monitoring system
warns only about low tyre pressure
condition and does not replace
regular tyre maintenance by the
driver.
All wheels must be equipped with
pressure sensors and the tyres must
have the prescribed pressure.
Notice
In countries where the tyre pressure
monitoring system is legally
required, the use of wheels without
pressure sensors will invalidate the
vehicle type approval.
Press MENU to select the Vehicle
Information MenuX.
The current tyre pressures can be
shown in the Vehicle Information
Menu in the Driver Information
Centre.
The menu can be selected by the
buttons on the turn signal lever.
Turn the adjuster wheel to select the
tyre pressure monitoring system.
212
Vehicle care
System status and pressure warnings
are displayed by a message
indicating the corresponding tyre in
the Driver Information Centre.
The system considers the tyre
temperature for the warnings.
Temperature dependency 3 214.
A detected low tyre pressure
condition is indicated by control
indicator w 3 93.
If w illuminates, stop as soon as
possible and inflate the tyres as
recommended 3 247.
If w flashes for 60-90 seconds then
illuminates continuously, there is a
fault in the system. Consult a
workshop.
After inflating, driving may be
required to update the tyre pressure
values in the Driver Information
Centre. During this time w may
illuminate.
If w illuminates at lower temperatures
and extinguishes after driving, this
could be an indicator for approaching
a low tyre pressure condition. Check
tyre pressure.
Vehicle messages 3 101.
If the tyre pressure must be reduced
or increased, switch off ignition.
Only mount wheels with pressure
sensors, otherwise the tyre pressure
will not be displayed and w
illuminates continuously.
A spare wheel or temporary spare
wheel is not equipped with pressure
sensors. The tyre pressure
monitoring system is not operational
for these tyres. Control indicator w
illuminates. For the further three
wheels the system remains
operational.
The use of commercially-available
liquid tyre repair kits can impair the
function of the system. Factoryapproved repair kits can be used.
Operating electronic devices or being
close to facilities using similar wave
frequencies could disrupt the tyre
pressure monitoring system.
Each time the tyres are replaced, tyre
pressure sensors must be
dismounted and serviced. For the
screwed sensor: replace valve core
and sealing ring. For clipped sensor:
replace complete valve stem.
Vehicle loading status
Adjust tyre pressure to load condition
according to the tyre information label
or tyre pressure chart 3 247, and
select the appropriate setting in the
Tyre load menu in the Driver
Information Centre 3 95. This setting
is the reference for the tyre pressure
warnings.

the vehicle is at a standstill and the
parking brake is applied. On vehicles
with automatic transmission, the
selector lever must be in P.
Select:
● Light for comfort pressure up to
3 people
● Eco for Eco pressure up to
3 people
● Max for full loading
Tyre pressure sensor matching
process
Each tyre pressure sensor has a
unique identification code. The
identification code must be matched
to a new wheel position after rotating
the wheels or exchanging the
complete wheel set and if one or more
tyre pressure sensors were replaced.
The tyre pressure sensor matching
process should also be performed
after replacing a spare wheel with a
road wheel containing the tyre
pressure sensor.
The malfunction light w and the
warning message or code should
extinguish at the next ignition cycle.
The sensors are matched to the
wheel positions, using a relearn tool,
in the following order: left side front
wheel, right side front wheel, right
side rear wheel and left side rear
wheel. The turn signal light at the
current active position is illuminated
until sensor is matched.
Consult your workshop for service or
to purchase a relearn tool. There are
two minutes to match the first wheel
position, and five minutes overall to
213
match all four wheel positions. If it
takes longer, the matching process
stops and must be restarted.
The tyre pressure sensor matching
process is:
1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition on.
3. On vehicles with automatic
transmission: set the selector
lever to P.
On vehicles with manual
transmission: select neutral.
4. Use MENU on the turn signal
lever to select the Vehicle
Information Menu in the Driver
Information Centre.
5. Turn the adjuster wheel to scroll to
the tyre pressure menu.
6. Press SET/CLR to begin the
sensor matching process. A
message requesting acceptance
of the process should be

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 3 247.
The tyre pressure information label
on the left door frame indicates the
original equipment tyres and the
correspondent tyre pressures.
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.
Tyre pressures differ depending on
various options. For the correct tyre
pressure value, follow the procedure
below:
1. Identify the engine identifier code.
Engine data 3 241.
2. Identify the respective tyre.
The tyre pressure tables show all
possible tyre combinations 3 247.
Vehicle care
For the tyres approved for your
vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of
Conformity provided with your vehicle
or other national registration
documents.
The driver is responsible for correct
adjustment of tyre pressure.
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.
9 Warning
For specific tyres the
recommended tyre pressure as
shown in the tyre pressure table
may exceed the maximum tyre
pressure as indicated on the tyre.
Never exceed the maximum tyre
pressure as indicated on the tyre.
If the tyre pressure must be reduced
or increased on a vehicle with tyre
pressure monitoring system, switch
off ignition. After adjusting tyre
pressure switch on ignition and select
the relevant setting on the page Tyre
load in the Driver Information Centre
3 95.
Temperature dependency
The tyre pressure depends on the
temperature of the tyre. During
driving, tyre temperature and
pressure increase. Tyre pressure
values provided on the tyre
information label and tyre pressure
chart are valid for cold tyres, which
means at 20 °C.
The pressure increases by nearly
1.5 psi for a 10 °C temperature
increase. This must be considered
when warm tyres are checked.
The tyre pressure value displayed in
the Driver Information Centre shows
the actual tyre inflation pressure. A
cooled down tyre will show a
decreased value, which does not
indicate an air leak.
215
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).
For safety reasons it is recommended
that the tread depth of the tyres on
one axle should not vary by more than
2 mm.
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

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.
Tyres age, even if they are not used.
We recommend tyre replacement
every 6 years.
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.
Vehicles with steel wheels: When
using locking wheel nuts, do not
attach wheel covers.
Tyre chains
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.
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel
covers could lead to sudden
pressure loss and thereby
accidents.
Use tyre chains only on front wheels.
Tyre chains are permitted on tyres of
size 225/55 R17. Always use fine
mesh chains that add no more than
10 mm to the tyre tread and the
inboard sides (including chain lock).

229
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 a de-icing agent,
have the locks regreased by a
workshop.
Washing
The paintwork of your vehicle is
exposed to environmental influences,
therefore wash your vehicle regularly.
When using automatic vehicle
washes, we recommend one with
textile brushes and a programme
without wax additives.
When doing a hand wash, use clear
water and a soft brush, cleaning in the
grain direction of the textile hood.
Never use a steam-jet or highpressure jet cleaner for the soft top or
the engine compartment.
230
Vehicle care
Wax painted parts of the vehicle
regularly.
Bird droppings, dead insects, resin,
pollen and the like should be cleaned
off immediately, as they contain
aggressive constituents which can
cause paint and fabric damage.
If using a vehicle wash, comply with
the vehicle wash manufacturer's
instructions. The windscreen wiper
must be switched off. Remove
additional antenna and external
accessories.
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.
Clean bright metal mouldings with a
cleaning solution approved for
aluminium to avoid damage.
Caution
Always use a cleaning agent with
a pH value of four to nine.
Do not use cleaning agents on hot
surfaces.
Caution
After washing or cleaning, the soft
top must be completely dried
before opening. If a wet soft top
remains opened for a longer time,
it would be damaged by water
spotting and mould growth.
When cleaning with a high-pressure
jet cleaner ensure a minimum
distance of 30 cm to the rear brand
emblem to prevent unintended
unlocking.
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.
Have the door hinges of all doors
greased by a workshop.
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 painted parts of 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.
Soft top as well as 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.
Vehicle care
When cleaning the rear window from
inside, always wipe in parallel to the
heating element to prevent damage.
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.
Remove dirt residues from smearing
wiper blades by using a soft cloth and
window cleaner. Also make sure to
remove any residues such as wax,
insect residues and similar from the
window.
Ice residues, pollution and continuous
wiping on dry windows will damage or
even destroy the wiper blades.
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
Interior care
Rectify minor paintwork damage with
a touch-up pen before rust forms.
Have more extensive damage or rust
areas repaired by a workshop.
Interior and upholstery
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.
231
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 cluster and the
displays should only be cleaned using
a soft damp cloth. If necessary use a
weak soap solution.
Clean fabric upholstery with a
vacuum cleaner and brush. Remove
stains with an upholstery cleaner.
Clothing fabrics may not be
colourfast. This could cause visible
discolourations, especially on lightcoloured upholstery. Removable
stains and discolourations should be
cleaned as soon as possible.
Clean seat belts with lukewarm water
or interior cleaner.
232
Vehicle care
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.

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
aging 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
petrol and diesel engines. If it is
unavailable, engine oils of other listed
qualities must be used.
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 238.
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.
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.
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 238.
Additional engine oil additives
The use of additional engine oil
additives could cause damage and
invalidate the warranty.
Service and maintenance
Engine oil viscosity grades
The SAE viscosity grade gives
information on the thickness of the oil.
Multigrade oil is indicated by two
figures, e.g. SAE 5W-30. The first
figure, followed by a W, indicates the
low temperature viscosity and the
second figure the high temperature
viscosity.
Select the appropriate viscosity grade
depending on the minimum ambient
temperature 3 238.
All of the recommended viscosity
grades are suitable for high ambient
temperatures.
Coolant and antifreeze
Use only organic acid type-long life
coolant (LLC) antifreeze approved for
the vehicle. Consult a workshop.
The system is factory filled with
coolant designed for excellent
corrosion protection and frost
protection down to approx. -28 °C. In
northern countries with very low
temperatures the factory filled coolant
provides frost protection down to
approx. -37 °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
Over time, brake fluid absorbs
moisture which will reduce braking
effectiveness. The brake fluid should
therefore be replaced at the specified
interval.
AdBlue
Only use AdBlue to reduce the
nitrogen oxides in the exhaust
emission 3 143.

Collision damage repair
Paint thickness
Due to production techniques, the
thickness of the paint can vary
between 50 and 400 µm.
Therefore, different paint thickness is
no indicator for a collision damage

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.
