Beyond the warning required by ECE
R94.02, for safety reasons neither
use a forward facing child restraint
system on the passenger seat with
active front airbag.
47
9 Danger
Do not use a child restraint system
on the passenger seat with active
front airbag.
Airbag deactivation 3 49.
Front airbag system
The front airbag system consists of
one airbag in the steering wheel and
one in the instrument panel on the
passenger side. These can be
identified by the word AIRBAG.
The front airbag system is triggered in
the event of an accident of a certain
severity. The ignition must be on.
The forward movement of the front
seat occupants is retarded, thereby
considerably reducing the risk of
injury to the upper body and head.
9 Warning
Optimum protection is only
provided when the seat is in the
proper position 3 38.
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Wear the seat belt properly
fastened. Only then the airbag is
able to protect.
48
Seats, restraints
Side airbag system
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 an accident of a certain
severity. The ignition must be on.
Curtain airbag system
The risk of injury to the upper body
and pelvis in the event of a side-on
collision is considerably reduced.
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Note
Only use protective seat covers that
have been approved for your
vehicle. Be careful not to cover the
airbags.
The curtain airbag system consists of
an airbag in the roof frame on each
side. This can be identified by the
word AIRBAG on the roof pillars.
The curtain airbag system is triggered
in the event of an accident of a certain
severity. The ignition must be on.
Seats, restraints
Airbag deactivation
Front airbag and side airbag systems
for the front passenger seat have to
be deactivated if a child restraint
system is to be fitted on this seat. The
curtain airbag system, the belt
tensioners and all driver airbag
systems will remain active.
The risk of injury to the head in the
event of a side impact is considerably
reduced.
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
The hooks on the handles in the
roof frame are only suitable for
hanging up light articles of
clothing, without coat hangers. Do
not keep any items in these
clothes.
Front passenger airbag system can
be deactivated via a lock on the side
of the instrument panel, visible when
the front passenger door is open.
49
9 Warning
Deactivate front passenger airbag
system when the front passenger
seat is occupied by a child.
Activate front passenger airbag
system when an adult is on the
front passenger seat.
Use the ignition key to choose the
position:
Woff = front passenger airbags are
deactivated and will not
inflate in the event of a
collision. Control indicator
Woff illuminates
continuously. A child
restraint system can be
installed in accordance with
the chart Child restraint
installation locations 3 52.
Von = front passenger airbags are
active. No child restraint
systems can be installed.
50
Seats, restraints
Child restraints
Child restraint systems
As long as the control indicator Woff
is not illuminated, the airbag systems
for the front passenger seat will inflate

Change status only when the vehicle
is stopped with the ignition off.
Status remains until the next change.
Control indicator for airbag
deactivation 3 77.
We recommend the GM 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
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 49.
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 ECE 44-03 or
ECE 44-04. Check local laws and
regulations for mandatory use of child
restraint systems.
Never carry a child whilst travelling in
the vehicle. The child will become too
heavy to hold in the event of a
collision.
When transporting children, use the
child restraint systems suitable for the
child's weight.
Seats, restraints
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.
Note
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.
Please ensure that infants and
children are seated in the rear seats
using child restraints.
Until the children can use seat belts,
please select a child restraint
suitable for its age and make sure
the child wears it. Please see the
instructions on the relevant products
for child restraints.

Loading information
■ Heavy objects in the load
compartment should be placed
against the seat backrests. Ensure
the backrests are securely
engaged. If objects can be stacked,
the heavier objects should be
placed at the bottom.
■ Secure objects with lashing straps
attached to lashing eyes 3 62.
■ Secure objects in load
compartment to prevent 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, 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.
■ The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (see identification
plate 3 300) and the kerb weight.
To calculate the kerb weight, enter
the data for your vehicle in the
Weights table, on page 3 3.
65
The 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
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.
Do not drive faster than 120 km/h.

When to change engine oil
This vehicle has a computer system
that indicates when to change the
engine oil and filter. This is based on
engine revolutions and engine
temperature, and not on mileage.
Based on driving conditions, the
mileage at which an oil change is
indicated can vary considerably.
For the oil life system to work
properly, the system must be reset
every time the oil is changed. When
the system has calculated that oil life
has been diminished, it indicates that
an oil change is necessary. CodE 82
Instruments and controls
appears in the Driver Information
Centre. Change the oil as soon as
possible within the next 1000 km.
It is possible that, if driving under the
best conditions, the oil life system
might indicate that an oil change is not
necessary for over a year. The engine
oil and filter must be changed at least
once a year and, at this time, the
system must be reset. Your dealer
has trained service people who can
perform this work and reset the
system.
It is also important to check the oil
level on a regular basis and top up if
necessary. If the system is ever reset
accidentally, the oil must be changed
at 5000 km since the last oil change.
Remember to reset the oil life system
whenever the oil is changed.
Display of remaining engine oil life
The remaining engine oil life duration
is displayed in the Driver Information
Centre by the control indicator I,
followed by a percent value which
shows the remaining engine oil life.
For this purpose the ignition has to be
switched on without engine running.
Driver Information Centre 3 81.
Service Information 3 290.
73
How to reset the engine oil life system
Reset the system whenever the
engine oil is changed so that the
system can calculate the next engine
oil change. To reset the engine oil life
system, do one of the following:
■ Using a diagnostic tool:
Your workshop will reset the
system using this tool after
changing the engine oil.
■ Using the SET/CLR button on
vehicles with Midlevel-Display:
Press the MENU button on the turn
signal lever to select the Vehicle
Information Menu. Turn the
adjuster wheel until the menu with
the remaining engine oil life
duration is displayed. Press SET/
CLR button for a few seconds with
ignition on. If CodE 82 still appears
in the Driver Information Centre
after the vehicle has been started,
the engine oil life system has not
been reset. Repeat the procedure.

The Infotainment system provides
you with state-of-the-art in-car
infotainment.
For the AM and FM wavebands the
radio is equipped with twelve
automatically assignable channel
presets. Furthermore, 36 channels
can be allocated manually
(waveband-independent).
The integrated audio player will
entertain you with audio CDs and
MP3/WMA CDs.
Furthermore, you can connect
external data storage devices, e.g.
iPod, MP3 player or USB stick (not
CD 300), or a portable CD player to
the Infotainment system as further
audio sources.
The digital sound processor provides
you with several preset equalizer
modes for sound optimisation.
The navigation system (only Navi
600) with dynamic route planning will
reliably guide you to your destination,
General information
107
and, if desired, will automatically
avoid traffic jams or other traffic
problems.
Optionally, the Infotainment system
can be operated using controls on the
steering wheel.
In addition the Infotainment system
can be equipped with a mobile phone
portal.
The well-thought-out design of the
control elements, the clear displays
and the multifunctional MENU knob
enable you to control the system
easily and intuitively.
Important information on
operation and traffic safety
9 Warning
The Infotainment system has to be
used so that the vehicle can be
driven safely at all times. If in doubt
stop your vehicle and operate the
Infotainment system while the
vehicle is stationary.
108
Infotainment system
9 Warning
The usage of the navigation
system (only Navi 600) does not
release the driver from the
responsibility for a correct, vigilant
attitude in road traffic. The related
traffic regulations must always be
followed.
Only make entries (e.g.
addresses) with the vehicle
stationary.
If a navigation instruction
contradicts traffic regulations, the
traffic regulations always apply.
9 Warning
In some areas one-way streets
and other roads and entrances
(e.g. pedestrian zones) that you
are not allowed to turn into are not
marked on the map. In such areas
the Infotainment system may
issue a warning that must be
accepted. Here you must pay
particular attention to one-way
streets, roads and entrances that
you are not allowed to drive into.
Radio reception
Radio reception may be disrupted by
static, noise, distortion or loss of
reception due to
■ changes in distance from the
transmitter,
■ multi-path reception due to
reflection,
■ shadowing.
Theft-deterrent feature
The Infotainment system is equipped
with an electronic security system for
the purpose of theft deterrent.
The Infotainment system therefore
functions only in your vehicle and is
worthless for a thief.

Navigation
General information
The navigation system will reliably
guide you to your destination without
the need to read maps, even if you
have no local knowledge whatsoever.
The current traffic situation is taken
into account in the route calculation if
dynamic route guidance is used. For
this purpose the Infotainment system
receives traffic announcements in the
current reception area via RDS-TMC.
The navigation system cannot,
however, take into account traffic
incidents, traffic regulations changed
at short notice and hazards or
problems that arise suddenly (e.g.
road works).
Caution
The usage of the navigation
system does not release the driver
from the responsibility for a
correct, vigilant attitude in road
traffic. The relevant traffic
155
regulations must always be
followed. If a navigation instruction
contradicts traffic regulations, the
traffic regulations always apply.
Functioning of the navigation
system
The position and movement of the
vehicle are detected by the navigation
system using sensors. The travelled
distance is determined by the
vehicle’s speedometer signal, turning
movements on bends by a gyro
sensor. The position is determined by
the GPS satellites (Global Positioning
System).
By comparing the sensor signals with
the digital maps on the map SD card,
it is possible to determine the position
with an accuracy of approx. 10 m.
The system will also work with poor
GPS reception, however, the
accuracy of the determination of the
position will be reduced.
156
Infotainment system
After the entry of the destination
address or point of interest (nearest
petrol station, hotel, etc.) the route is
calculated from the current location to
the destination selected.
The route guidance is provided by
voice output and an arrow, as well as
with the aid of a multi-colour map
display.
TMC traffic information system
and dynamic route guidance
The TMC traffic information system
receives all current traffic information
from TMC radio stations. If dynamic
route guidance is active, this
information is included in the
calculation of the overall route. During
this process, the route is planned so
that traffic problems related to preselected criteria are avoided.
If there is a traffic problem during
active route guidance, depending on
the pre-settings, a message appears
as to whether the route should be
changed.
TMC traffic information is displayed in
the route guidance display as
symbols or as detailed text on the
TMC messages menu.
To be able to use TMC traffic
information, the system has to receive
TMC stations in the relevant region.
Dynamic route guidance only works if
traffic information is received via the
TMC traffic information system.
The dynamic route guidance function
can be deactivated in the Navigation
options menu, see chapter
"Guidance" 3 179.
Map data
All required map data is stored on an
SD card provided with the
Infotainment system.

Exporting and importing POI
data
Introductory explanations
Types of POI data
The Infotainment system provides the
following types of points of interest
data:
■ Predefined Points of Interest stored
on the map SD card and indicated
by icons on the map display.
You can store such predefined
POIs in the address book or as
individual POIs in the myPOIs
memory of the Infotainment
system, see below.
■ Favourite destination addresses
that were stored in the Address
book.
You can export these address book
data to a USB drive for later use,
e.g., in other cars.
■ Individual POIs: favourite
destination addresses that were
stored in the myPOIs memory.
You can export these individual
POI data to a USB drive for later
use, e.g., in other cars.
■ User defined POIs: favourite
destination addresses that you
defined via GPS coordinates
(taken, e.g., from a topographical
map) and that you entered into text
files.
You can store these user defined
POI data on a USB drive and later
import the data to the myPOIs
161
memory of the Infotainment
system, see below.
■ Imported POIs: favourite
destination addresses that were
previously stored on a USB drive
and then imported to the myPOIs
memory of the Infotainment
system.
Advantages of POI export and import
The export and import of points of
interest data offer you, e.g., the
following advantages:
■ Define and store your favourite
destination addresses only once,
and later use these address data in
other cars.
See "Exporting and importing
individual POIs and address book
entries" below.
■ Define your favourite destination
addresses conveniently at home,
and later use them in your car.
See "Creating and importing user
defined POIs" below.
■ Clearly arrange a large amount of
destination addresses, e.g.,
favourite destination addresses of
162
Infotainment system
other family members or
destination addresses for your next
journey or business trip in separate
submenus.
See "Organizing the POI data in
several subfolders" below.
Exporting and importing individual
POIs and address book entries
Brief description:
1. Connect a USB drive to the USB
port of your car's Infotainment
system.
2. Store (export) your favourite
destination addresses on the USB
drive.
3. Connect the USB drive to the USB
port of a car equipped with a Navi
600 or Navi 900 system.
4. Download (import) the address
data to the car's Infotainment
system.
After the import, the addresses can
be selected as destinations for route
guidance.
Detailed descriptions see below.
Exporting POI data to a USB drive
Connect a USB drive to the USB port
of the Infotainment system, see
chapter "USB port" 3 146.
Press the CONFIG button, select
Navigation settings and then select
Export POIs.
The Export POIs menu is displayed.
By default all individual POIs stored in
the myPOIs memory and all address
book entries will be exported.
If desired, deselect the address data
types that you do not want to be
exported.
Select Start export to store the
address data of the selected type(s)
on the connected USB drive.
The address data will be stored in a
folder named myPOIs that is located
in the root directory of the USB drive.
For each exported POI category, e.g.
Restaurant or Private, you will find a
correspondingly named file in that
folder.
Examples:
F:\myPOIs\Restaurant_3.poi or
F:\myPOIs\Private_1.poi, where F:\ is
the root directory of the USB drive.
Note
If files with POI data of the same
category are already stored on the
USB drive in the myPOIs folder,
these old file versions will be
overwritten by equally named new
file versions.
The folder myPOIs and the files with
POI data should not be renamed or
moved into another folder on the
USB drive. Otherwise the
Infotainment system will not be able
to import the address data again.
Infotainment system
Importing POI data from a USB drive
Connect a USB drive with POI data
stored on it (details see above) to the
USB port of the Infotainment system,
see chapter "USB port" 3 146.
To start the import: press the
CONFIG button, select Navigation
settings, select Import individual
POIs and then select Continue.
All POI data stored on the USB drive
is imported to the myPOIs memory of
the Infotainment system.
After the import is finished, the
imported POIs are selectable as
destinations via the Enter
destination menu, see chapter
"Destination input" 3 165.
Creating and importing user defined
POIs
User defined points of interest need
to be defined via GPS coordinates
that can be taken, e.g., from a
topographical map.
The GPS coordinates and further
address data need to be entered into
text files, each file representing a POI
category.
Brief description:
1. Create the text files for the POI
data.
2. Enter the desired address data
into the text files.
3. Store the text files with your POI
data on a USB drive.
4. Connect the USB drive to the USB
port of your car's Infotainment
system.
5. Download (import) the text files
with your POI data to the
Infotainment system.
After the import, the addresses can
be selected as destinations for route
guidance.
Detailed descriptions see below.
Creating the text files for POI data
You can assign your favourite
destination addresses to 20 different
POI categories, with each POI
category assigned a number, see
"POI categories and assigned
numbers" below.
For each POI category you need to
create a separate text file.
163
The text files can be created, e.g., by
using a simple text editor software.
Note
The text editor must support the
UTF-8 character encoding for
Unicode.
Each text file name need to consist of
the category name, a single
underscore, the category's number
and the file extension .poi.
Example file names:
■ Business_2.poi
■ Home & Living_8.poi
■ Culture_15.poi
Note
The length of the text file names is
limited to 32 characters.
POI categories and assigned
numbers:
(1) Private, (2) Business, (3)
Restaurant, (4) Hotel, (5) Automotive,
(6) Travel, (7) Cinema, (8) Home &
Living, (9) Shopping, (10) Craft, (11)
Sport, (12) Sight, (13) Health care,
(14) Leisure, (15) Culture, (16)
164
Infotainment system
Nightlife, (17) Communication, (18)
News & broking, (19) Government
office, (20) General.
Entering POI data into the text files
The image below shows a sample
text file named Home & Living_8.poi
with some sample POI data:
The POI data need to be entered into
the text files in the following format:
Longitude coordinate, Latitude
coordinate, "Name of POI", "Any
additional information", "Phone
number (optional)"
Example: 7.0350000, 50.6318040,
"Michaels Home", "Bonn - Hellweg 6",
"02379234567", see image above.
The GPS coordinates need to be
expressed in decimal degrees.
The maximum length of the POI name
is 60 characters. The same applies to
the additional information string and
the phone number string.
The POI data of each destination
address need to be entered in a single
separate line, see image above.
Storing the text files on a USB drive
The text files with POI data need to be
stored in a folder named myPOIs that
is located in the root directory of the
USB drive.
Example: F:\myPOIs\Home &
Living_8.poi, where F:\ is the root
directory of the USB drive.
After importing the individual POI
data to the Infotainment system (see
import description further below), the
Imported POIs menu will show a list
of selectable POI categories like the
following:
Organizing the POI data in several
subfolders
Optionally you can organize the text
files in several, arbitrary named,
subfolders.
Examples: F:\myPOIs\AnnsPOIs or
F:\myPOIs\MyJourney, where F:\ is
the root directory of the USB drive.
After importing individual POI data
organized in that way to the
Infotainment system (see import
description further below), the
Imported POIs menu will show a list
of selectable submenus like the

TMC is included in the calculation of
the route. The route is suggested
taking into account all traffic problems
or restrictions as per pre-set criteria
(e.g. „shortest route“, „avoid
freeways“ etc.).
In the case of a traffic problem (e.g.
traffic jam, closed road) on the route
driven, a message is displayed and a
voice message output indicating the
nature of the problem. The driver can
decide whether to drive around the
traffic problem taking the suggested
change to the route or to carry on
through the traffic problem.
Nearby traffic problems are also
reported if route guidance is not
active.
If route guidance is active, the system
continuously checks, based on the
traffic information, whether it would
be better to recalculate the route or
take an alternative route taking into
account the current traffic situation.
The activation and deactivation of
dynamic route guidance, as well as
criteria for the calculation of the route
and other settings for navigation, are
made in the Navigation options menu,
see chapter "Guidance" 3 179.
Dynamic route guidance only works if
traffic information is received via the
RDS-TMC traffic information system.
The possible delay due to a traffic
problem calculated by the
Infotainment system is based on data
that the system receives via the RDSTMC station currently set. The actual
delay may be different to that
calculated.

Speech recognition
General information
The speech recognition of the
Infotainment system enables you to
operate various functions of the
navigation system (only Navi 900;
inclusive audio system features) and
the phone portal via voice input. It
recognises commands and numeric
sequences independently of the
relevant speaker. The commands
and numeric sequences can be
spoken without a voice pause
between the individual words.
You can save destination addresses,
radio stations and telephone numbers
assigning a name of your choice
(voice tag). Using these names, you
can later set the destination address
for an upcoming trip, select a radio
station or set up a telephone
connection.
In the event of incorrect operation or
commands the speech recognition
gives you visual and/or acoustic
feedback and requests you to reenter the desired command. Apart
Infotainment system
from this, the speech recognition
acknowledges important commands
and will enquire if necessary.
To ensure that conversations inside
the vehicle do not lead to
unintentional triggering of system
functions, the speech recognition
does not start until it has been
activated.
Important notes on language
support
■ Not all languages available for the
display of the Infotainment system
are also available for the speech
recognition.
■ Not all languages available for the
speech recognition of the phone
portal are also available for the
speech recognition of the
navigation system (inclusive audio
system features).
■ Speech recognition of the phone
portal: if the currently selected
language for the display is not
supported by the speech
recognition, you need to enter the
voice commands in English.
To be able to enter voice
commands in English, you first
need to activate the phone main
menu by pressing the PHONE
button on the Infotainment system,
and then activate the speech
recognition of the phone portal by
pressing the button w on the
steering wheel.
■ Speech recognition of the
navigation system: if the currently
selected language for the display is
not supported by the speech
recognition, speech recognition will
not be available.
In such a case you need to select
another language for the display if
you want to control the Infotainment
system via voice commands:
Press the CONFIG button, select
the Languages menu item and then
select, e.g, English.
As the English language is one of
the languages supported by the
speech recognition of the
navigation system, speech
recognition will then be available.
193
Note
If you change the language shown
on the Infotainment system's
display, all names currently
assigned to preset stations and/or
destination addresses will be
deleted.

Entering a telephone number
After the command "Dial" the speech
recognition requests input of a
number.
The telephone number must be
spoken in your normal voice without
any artificial pauses between the
individual numbers.
Recognition works best, if a pause of
at least half a second is made after
every three to five digits. The
Infotainment system then repeats the
numbers recognised.
You can then enter further numbers
or the following commands:
■ "Dial": the inputs are accepted.
■ "Delete": the number last entered or
the block of numbers last entered is
deleted.
■ "Plus": a preceding "+" is entered
for a call abroad.

your mobile phone and the
Infotainment system, you can also
operate many functions of your
mobile phone via the Infotainment
system.
Via the Infotainment system, you can,
e.g., set up a connection to the
telephone numbers stored in your
mobile phone or change the
telephone numbers.
Note
In the handsfree mode mobile phone
operation continues to be possible,
e. g. taking a call or adjusting the
volume.
After setup of a connection between
the mobile phone and the
Infotainment system the mobile
phone data is transmitted to the
Infotainment system. This can take
some time depending on the phone
model. During this period operation of
the mobile phone is possible via the
Infotainment system only to a limited
extent.
Not every telephone supports all

Engine exhaust
9 Danger
not available and fuel consumption
may be higher during this period. The
emission of smells and smoke during
this process is normal.
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. The filter
is cleaned by burning off the soot
particles at high temperature. This
process takes place automatically
under set driving conditions and may
take 10 up to 25 minutes. Autostop is
Under certain driving conditions, e.g.
short distances, the system cannot
clean itself automatically.
If the filter requires cleaning and
previous driving conditions did not
enable automatic cleaning, control
indicator % illuminates or flashes.
Continue driving, maintaining a
minimum speed of 50 km/h for about
15 minutes, or until the control
Driving and operating
indicator goes off. Shift down if
necessary. Diesel particle filter
cleaning is then started.
Caution
The control indicator % extinguishes
as soon as the self-cleaning
operation is complete.
Stopping the journey or switching off
the engine during cleaning is not
recommended.
Caution
If the cleaning process is
interrupted more than once, there
is a great risk of provoking severe
engine damage.
Cleaning takes place quickest at high
engine speeds and loads.

Driving and operating
Caution
It is advisable to have both hands
on the steering wheel whenever
possible. Avoid resting your hands
on the selector lever.
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.
After starting off, the system
performes a selftest which may be
audible.
Control indicator R 3 77.
227
Antilock brake system
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
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 77.
Fault
9 Warning
If there is a fault in the ABS, the
wheels may be liable to lock due
to braking that is heavier than
normal. The advantages of ABS
are no longer available. During
228
Driving and operating
hard braking, the vehicle can no
longer be steered and may
swerve.
Have the cause of the fault remedied

brake pedal for as long as full braking
is required. Maximum brake force is
automatically reduced when the
brake pedal is released.
Ride control systems
Traction Control system
Traction control system (TC)
improves driving stability when
necessary, regardless of the type of
road surface or tyre grip, by
preventing the driving wheels from
spinning.
As soon as the driving wheels start to
spin, engine output is reduced and
the wheel spinning the most is braked
individually. This considerably
improves the driving stability of the
vehicle on slippery road surfaces.
TC is operational as soon as the
control indicator b extinguishes.

Side blind spot alert is active from
speeds of 40 km/h up to 140 km/h.
Driving faster than 140 km/h
deactivates the system, indicated by
low lighting warning symbols B in
both outside mirrors. Reducing the
speed again will extinguish the
warning symbols. If a vehicle is then
detected in the blind zone, the
warning symbols B will illuminate as
normal on the relevant side.
When the vehicle is started, both
outside mirror displays will briefly
come on to indicate that the system is
operating.
The system sensor covers a zone of
approx. 3 metres on both sides of the
vehicle. This zone starts at each side
mirror and extends rearwards by
approx. 3 metres. The height of the
zone is approx. between 0.5 metres
and 2 metres off the ground.
The detection zones will not change if
the vehicle is towing a trailer.

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.
In accordance with country-specific
regulations, affix the speed sticker in
the driver's field of view.
Tyres of size 205/60 R 16,
215/50 R 17 and 225/50 R17 can be
used as winter tyres.
Tyres of size 215/60 R 16 and
225/55 R16 must not be used as
winter tyres.

Tyre pressure
Check the pressure of cold tyres at
least every 14 days and before any
long journey. Do not forget the spare
wheel if installed.
Unscrew the valve cap.
Tyre pressure 3 315 and on the label
on the driver's 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 will assist in
reducing fuel consumption.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and
fuel economy and will increase tyre
wear.
Vehicle care
Tyre pressures differ depending on
various options. For the correct tyre
pressure value, follow the procedure
below:
1. Identify drive axle and body style.
2. Identify the engine identifier code.
Engine data 3 302.
3. Identify the respective tyre.
The tyre pressure tables show all
possible tyre combinations 3 315.
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.
Tyre pressure monitoring
system
The Tyre Pressure Monitoring
System (TPMS) uses radio and
sensor technology to check tyre
pressure levels. The TPMS sensors
monitor the air pressure in your tyres
and transmit tyre pressure readings
to a receiver located in the vehicle.
Each tyre, including the spare (if
provided), should be checked
monthly when cold and inflated to the
inflation pressure recommended by
the vehicle manufacturer on the
vehicle placard or tyre inflation
pressure label. (If your vehicle has
tyres of a different size than the size
indicated on the vehicle placard or
tyre inflation pressure label, you
should determine the proper tyre
inflation pressure for those tyres.)
As an added safety feature, your
vehicle has been equipped with a
TPMS that illuminates a low tyre
pressure telltale when one or more of
your tyres is significantly underinflated.
271
Accordingly, when the low tyre
pressure telltale illuminates, you
should stop and check your tyres as
soon as possible, and inflate them to
the proper pressure. Driving on a
significantly under-inflated tyre
causes the tyre to overheat and can
lead to tyre failure. Under-inflation
also reduces fuel efficiency and tyre
tread life, and may affect the vehicle's
handling and stopping ability.
Please note that the TPMS is not a
substitute for proper tyre
maintenance, and it is the driver's
responsibility to maintain correct tyre
pressure, even if under-inflation has
not reached the level to trigger
illumination of the TPMS low tyre
pressure telltale.
Your vehicle has also been equipped
with a TPMS malfunction indicator to
indicate when the system is not
operating properly. The TPMS
malfunction indicator is combined
with the low tyre pressure telltale.
When the system detects a
malfunction, the telltale will flash for
approximately one minute and then
remain continuously illuminated. This
272
Vehicle care
sequence will continue upon
subsequent vehicle start-ups as long
as the malfunction exists.
When the malfunction indicator is
illuminated, the system may not be
able to detect or signal low tyre
pressure as intended. TPMS
malfunctions may occur for a variety
of reasons, including the installation
of replacement or alternate tyres or
wheels on the vehicle that prevent the
TPMS from functioning properly.
Always check the TPMS malfunction
telltale after replacing one or more
tyres or wheels on your vehicle to
ensure that the replacement or
alternate tyres and wheels allow the
TPMS to continue to function
properly. Tyre pressure monitor
operation 3 272.
Tyre pressure monitor
operation
This vehicle may have a Tyre
Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
The TPMS is designed to warn the
driver when a low tyre pressure
condition exists. TPMS sensors are
mounted onto each tyre and wheel
assembly, excluding the spare tyre
and wheel assembly. The TPMS
sensors monitor the air pressure in
the tyres and transmit the tyre
pressure readings to a receiver
located in the vehicle.
When a low tyre pressure condition is
detected, the TPMS illuminates the
low tyre pressure warning light A
located on the instrument cluster. If
the warning light comes on, stop as
soon as possible and inflate the tyres
to the recommended pressure shown
on the tyre pressure label 3 270.
A message to check the pressure in a
specific tyre displays in the Driver
Information Centre (DIC) display. The
low tyre pressure warning light and
the DIC warning message come on at
each ignition cycle until the tyres are
inflated to the correct inflation
pressure. Using the DIC, tyre
pressure levels can be viewed. For
additional information and details
about the DIC operation and displays
3 81.
The low tyre pressure warning light
may come on in cool weather when
the vehicle is first started, and then
turn off as the vehicle is driven. This
could be an early indicator that the air
pressure is getting low and must be
inflated to the proper pressure. A
label shows the size of the original
equipment tyres and the correct
inflation pressure for the tyres when
they are cold 3 270. Also see tyre
pressures 3 315.
The TPMS can warn about a low tyre
pressure condition but it does not
replace normal tyre maintenance.
Note
Tyre sealant materials are not all the
same. A non-approved tyre sealant
could damage the TPMS sensors.
TPMS sensor damage caused by
using an incorrect tyre sealant is not
covered by the vehicle warranty.
Always use only the GM-approved
tyre sealant available through your
dealer or included in the vehicle.
Factory-installed tyre repair kits use a
GM-approved liquid tyre sealant.
Using non-approved tyre sealants
Vehicle care
could damage the TPMS sensors. For
information regarding the tyre repair
kit and instructions 3 276.
TPMS malfunction light and
message
The TPMS will not function properly if
one or more of the TPMS sensors are
missing or inoperable. When the
system detects a malfunction, the low
tyre warning light A flashes for about
one minute and then stays on for the
remainder of the ignition cycle. A DIC
warning message also displays. The
malfunction light and DIC warning
message come on at each ignition
cycle until the problem is corrected.
Some of the conditions that can
cause these to come on are:
■ One of the road tyres has been
replaced with the spare tyre. The
spare tyre does not have a TPMS
sensor. The malfunction light and
DIC message should go off after
the road tyre is replaced and the
sensor matching process is
performed successfully. See
"TPMS sensor matching process"
later in this section.
■ The TPMS sensor matching
process was not done or not
completed successfully after
rotating the tyres. The malfunction
light and DIC message should go
off after successfully completing
the sensor matching process. See
"TPMS sensor matching process"
later in this section.
■ One or more TPMS sensors are
missing or damaged. The
malfunction light and DIC message
should go off when the TPMS
sensors are installed and the
sensor matching process is
performed successfully. See your
dealer for service.
■ Replacement tyres or wheels do
not match the original equipment
tyres or wheels. Tyres and wheels
other than those recommended
could prevent the TPMS from
functioning properly.
■ Operating electronic devices or
being near facilities using radio
wave frequencies similar to the
TPMS could cause the TPMS
sensors to malfunction.
273
If the TPMS is not functioning
properly, it cannot detect or signal a
low tyre condition. See your dealer for
service if the malfunction light and
DIC message come on and stay on.
TPMS sensor matching process
Each TPMS sensor has a unique
identification code. The identification
code needs to be matched to a new
tyre/wheel position after rotating the
tyres or replacing one or more of the
TPMS sensors. The TPMS sensor
matching process should also be
performed after replacing a spare tyre
with a road tyre containing the TPMS
sensor. The malfunction light and the
DIC message should go off at the next
ignition cycle. The sensors are
matched to the tyre/ wheel positions,
using a TPMS relearn tool, in the
following order: driver side front tyre,
passenger side front tyre, passenger
side rear tyre, and driver side rear.
See your dealer for service.
There are two minutes to match the
first tyre/wheel position, and five
minutes overall to match all four tyre/
274
Vehicle care
wheel positions. If it takes longer, the
matching process stops and must be
restarted.
The TPMS sensor matching process
is:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN with
the engine off.
3. Use the MENU button to select
the Vehicle Information menu in
the Driver Information Centre
(DIC).
4. Use the thumbwheel to scroll to
the Tyre Pressure Menu item
screen.
5. Press the SET/CLR button to
begin the sensor matching
process. A message requesting
acceptance of the process should
display.
6. Press the SET/CLR button again
to confirm the selection. The horn
sounds twice to signal the
receiver is in relearn mode and a
message indicating that the
matching process is active
displays on the DIC screen.
7. Start with the driver side front tyre.
8. Place the relearn tool against the
tyre sidewall, near the valve stem.
Then press the button to activate
the TPMS sensor. A horn chirp
confirms that the sensor
identification code has been
matched to this tyre and wheel
position.
9. Proceed to the passenger side
front tyre, and repeat the
procedure in step 8.
10. Proceed to the passenger side
rear tyre, and repeat the
procedure in step 8.
11. Proceed to the driver side rear
tyre, and repeat the procedure in
step 8. The horn sounds two times
to indicate the sensor
identification code has been
matched to the driver side rear
tyre, and the TPMS sensor
matching process is no longer
active. The message indicating
that the matching process is
active on the DIC display screen
goes off.
12. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.
13. Set all four tyres to the
recommended air pressure level
as indicated on the tyre pressure
label 3 270.
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 wheels on
one axle should not vary by more than
2 mm.
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 reprogram 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.
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.
Tyres age, even if they are not used.
We recommend tyre replacement
every 6 years.
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.
275
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.
Tyre chains

not obtained within 10 minutes,
remove the tyre repair kit. Move
the vehicle one tyre rotation.
Reattach the tyre repair kit and
continue the filling procedure for
10 minutes. If the prescribed tyre
pressure is still not obtained, the
tyre is too badly damaged. Seek
the assistance of a workshop.
Drain excess tyre pressure with
the button over the pressure
indicator.
Do not run the compressor longer
than 10 minutes.
14. Detach the tyre repair kit. Push
catch on bracket to remove
sealant bottle from bracket. Screw
tyre inflation hose to free
connection of sealant bottle. This
prevents sealant from escaping.
Stow tyre repair kit in load
compartment.
15. Remove any excess sealant
using a cloth.
16. Take the label indicating
maximum permitted speed from
the sealant bottle and affix in the
driver's field of view.
17. Continue driving immediately so
that sealant is evenly distributed
in the tyre. After driving approx.
10 km (but no more than
10 minutes), stop and check tyre
pressure. Screw compressor air
hose directly onto tyre valve and
compressor when doing this.
If tyre pressure is more than
1.3 bar, set it to the correct value.
Repeat the procedure until there
is no more loss of pressure.
If the tyre pressure has fallen
below 1.3 bar, the vehicle must
not be used. Seek the assistance
of a workshop.
18. Stow away tyre repair kit in load
compartment.
Vehicle care
Note
The driving characteristics of the
repaired tyre is severely affected,
therefore have this tyre replaced.
If unusual noise is heard or the
compressor becomes hot, turn
compressor off for at least
30 minutes.
The built-in safety valve opens at a
pressure of 7 bar.
Note the expiry date of the kit. After
this date its sealing capability is no
longer guaranteed. Pay attention to
storage information on sealant
bottle.
Replace the used sealant bottle.
Dispose of the bottle as prescribed
by applicable laws.
The compressor and sealant can be
used from approx. -30 °C.
The adapters supplied can be used
to pump up other items e.g.
footballs, air mattresses, inflatable
dinghies etc. They are located on the
underside of the compressor. To
remove, screw on compressor air
hose and withdraw adapter.
Wheel changing
Some vehicles are equipped with a
tyre repair kit instead of a spare wheel
3 276.
Make the following preparations and
observe the following information:

If your vehicle gets a flat tyre on the
rear while towing another vehicle,
mount the temporary spare wheel in
the front and the full tyre in the rear.
Tyre chains 3 275.
Vehicle care
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.
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.
Jump starting
Do not start with quick charger.
A vehicle with a discharged battery
can be started using jump leads and
the battery of another vehicle.
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 with eyes, skin,
fabrics and painted surfaces. The
fluid contains sulphuric acid which
can cause injuries and damage in
the event of direct contact.
283
■ Never expose the battery to naked
flames or sparks.
■ A discharged battery can already
freeze at temperatures 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 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.
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.
Vehicle care

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
column lock and to permit operation
of brake lights, horn and windscreen
wipers.
Transmission in neutral.
When the engine is not running,
considerably more force is needed to
brake and steer.
To prevent the entry of exhaust fumes
from the towing vehicle, switch on the
air recirculation and close the
windows.
Vehicles with automatic transmission:
Do not tow the vehicle using tow eye.
Towing with a tow rope could cause
severe automatic transmission
damage. When towing vehicle with
automatic transmission, use flat bed
or wheel lift equipment.
Vehicle with manual transmission:
The vehicle must be towed facing
forwards, not faster than 80 km/h. In
all other cases and when the
transmission is defective, the front
axle must be raised off the ground.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye.
Insert cap below and close cap.
The best method is to have the
vehicle transported using a recovery
vehicle.

287
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.
Outside pollutants such as bird
droppings, dead insects, tree resin
and pollen should be cleaned from
the vehicle immediately as they can
cause paint damage.
288
Vehicle care
If using a vehicle wash, comply with
the vehicle wash manufacturer's
instructions. The windscreen wipers
and rear window wiper must be
switched off. Lock the vehicle so that
the fuel filler flap cannot be opened.
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.
Caution
Always use a cleaning agent with
a pH value of 4 to 9.
Do not use cleaning agents on hot
surfaces.
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.
Do not use hard objects to remove
spots of tar. Use tar removal spray on
painted surfaces.
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 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.
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.
Vehicle care
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.
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 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.
289
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.
Clean up the dust on IP/door's mesh
fabric with a vacuum cleaner.
Remove stains with interior cleaner.
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.

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.
Engine oil quality
dexos 2
Petrol and diesel
engines
ACEA A3/B3,

LXT only (if engine
oil approved by
dexos is not avail‐
able)
9 Warning
Operating materials are
hazardous and could be
poisonous. Handle with care. Pay
attention to information given on
the containers.
Selecting the right engine oil
Selecting the right engine oil depends
on the proper oil specification and
viscosity grade.
Service and maintenance
Use and ask for engine oils with the
dexos certification mark. Oils meeting
the requirements of your vehicle
should have the dexos certification
mark on the container. This
certification mark indicates that the oil
has been approved to the dexos
specification.
Your vehicle was filled at the factory
with dexos approved engine oil.
Use only engine oil that is approved
to the dexos specification or an
equivalent engine oil of the
appropriate viscosity grade.
If you are unsure whether your oil is
approved to the dexos specification,
ask your service provider.
Use of substitute engine oils if dexos
is unavailable: In the event that dexos
approved engine oil is not available at
an oil change or for maintaining
proper oil level, you may use
substitute engine oil of the qualities
mentioned above. Use of oils that do
not meet the dexos specification,
however, may result in reduced
performance or engine damage
under certain circumstances.
Topping up engine oil
Engine oils of different manufacturers
and brands can be mixed as long as
they comply with the required engine
oil (quality and viscosity).
If engine oil of the required quality is
not available, a maximum of 1 litre of
ACEA A3/B4 or A3/B3 grade may be
used (only once between each oil
change). The viscosity should be of
the correct rating.
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.
Engine oil additives
The use of engine oil additives could
cause damage and invalidate the
warranty.
297
Engine oil viscosity grades
SAE 5W-30 is the best viscosity
grade for your vehicle. Do not use
other viscosity grade oils such as
SAE 10W-30, 10W-40 or 20W-50.
Cold temperature operation:
If in an area of extreme cold, where
the temperature falls below -25°C, an
SAE 0W-30 oil should be used. An oil
of this viscosity grade will provide
easier cold starting for the engine at
extremely low temperatures. When
selecting an oil of the appropriate
298
Service and maintenance
viscosity grade be sure to always
select an oil that meets the dexos
specification.
■ Down to -25°C and below: 0W-30,
0W-40.
■ Down to -25°C: 5W-30, 5W-40.
■ Down to -20°C: 10W-30, 10W-40
(only for LXT).
■ Down to -15°C: 15W-30, 15W-40
(only for LXT).
The SAE viscosity grade gives
information of the thickness of the oil.
Multigrade oil is indicated by two
figures.
The first figure, followed by a W,
indicates the low temperature
viscosity and the second figure 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. -27 °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 DOT4 brake fluid.
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.
Caution
Using low quality brake fluid may
cause corrosion to internal
components of the brake system,
which may result in decreased
brake system performance, which
is a safety concern. Always use
high quality brake fluid approved

Vehicle data recording
and privacy
Event data recorders
Data storage modules in the
vehicle
A large number of electronic
components of your vehicle contain
data storage modules temporarily or
permanently storing technical data
about the condition of the vehicle,
events and errors. In general, this
technical information documents the
condition of parts, modules, systems
or the environment:
■ Operating conditions of system
components (e.g. filling levels)
■ Status messages of the vehicle and
its single components (e.g. number
of wheel revolutions / rotational
speed, deceleration, lateral
acceleration)
■ Dysfunctions and defects in
important system components
318
Customer information
■ Vehicle reactions in particular
driving situations (e.g. inflation of
an airbag, activation of the stability
regulation system)
■ Environmental conditions (e.g.
temperature)
These data are exclusively technical
and help identifying and correcting
errors as well as optimizing vehicle
functions.
Motion profiles indicating travelled
routes cannot be created with these
data.
If services are used (e.g. repair
works, service processes, warranty
cases, quality assurance),
employees of the service network
(manufacturer included) are able to
read out this technical information
from the event and error data storage
modules applying special diagnostic
devices. If required, you will receive
further information at these
workshops. After an error has been
corrected, the data are deleted from
the error storage module or they are
constantly overwritten.
When using the vehicle, situations
may occur in which these technical
data related to other information
(accident report, damages on the
vehicle, witness statements etc.) may
be associated with a specific person possibly, with the assistance of an
expert.
Additional functions contractually
agreed upon with the client (e.g.
vehicle location in emergency cases)
allow the transmission of particular
vehicle data from the vehicle.
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 key fobs for remote door locking/
unlocking and starting, and in-vehicle
transmitters for garage door openers.
RFID technology in Chevrolet
vehicles does not use or record
personal information or link with any
other Chevrolet system containing
personal information.
