Beyond the warning required by
ECE R94.02, for safety reasons a
forward-facing child restraint system
must only be used subject to the
instructions and restrictions in the
table 3 62.
56
Seats, restraints
Fit the seat belt correctly and
engage securely. Only then is the
airbag able to protect.
9 Danger
Do not use a child restraint system
on the passenger seat with active
front airbag.
Side airbag system
The airbag label is located on both
sides of the front passenger sun visor.
Airbag deactivation 3 57.
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.
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 37.
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
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.
Seats, restraints
Curtain airbag system
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 a side-on impact of a
certain severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
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.
Airbag deactivation
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the upper body and pelvis in
the event of a side-on collision
considerably.
The front passenger airbag system
has to be deactivated if a child
restraint system is to be fitted on this
seat. The side airbag and curtain
airbag systems, the belt
pretensioners and all driver airbag
systems will remain active.
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.
57
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the head in the event of a
side-on impact considerably.
The curtain airbag system does not
protect passengers on the third seat
row.
58
Seats, restraints
The front passenger airbag system
can be deactivated via a keyoperated switch on the passenger
side of the instrument panel.
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 62. No adult
person is allowed to occupy
the front passenger seat
ONV : 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.
If the control indicator ONV
illuminates for approx. 60 seconds
after the ignition is switched on, 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.
Seats, restraints
Control indicator for airbag
deactivation 3 111.
Child restraints
Child restraint systems
9 Danger
If using a rear-facing child restraint
system on the front passenger
seat, the airbag system for the
front passenger seat must be
deactivated. This also applies to
certain forward-facing child
restraint systems as indicated in
the tables 3 62.
Airbag deactivation 3 57, Airbag label
3 53.
We recommend a child restraint
system which is tailored specifically to
the vehicle. For further information,
contact your workshop.
Before fastening a child seat adjust
the head restraint to use position
3 35.
59
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.
Child restraint systems can be
fastened with:
● Three-point seat belt
● ISOFIX brackets
● Top-tether
Three-point seat belt
Child restraint systems can be
fastened by using a three-point seat
belt. Depending on the size of the
used child restraint systems, up to
two child restraint systems can be
attached to the outboard seats in the
second row and on the seats in the
third row. 3 62.
60
Seats, restraints
ISOFIX brackets
Fasten vehicle-approved ISOFIX
child restraint systems to the ISOFIX
mounting brackets. Specific vehicle
ISOFIX child restraint system
positions are marked in the ISOFIX
table 3 62.
ISOFIX mounting brackets are
indicated by a label on the backrest.
When using ISOFIX fastened child
restraint systems on the second seat
row, we recommend to adjust the
accordant outer seat in third notch
from rear end position, regarding to
base seats. Lounge seat, if equipped,
must be in normal position 3 43.
An i-Size child restraint system is an
universal ISOFIX child restraint
system according UN Regulation No.
129.
All i-Size child restraint systems can
be used on any vehicle seat suitable
for i-Size, i-Size table 3 62.
Either a Top-tether strap or a support
leg must be used in addition to the
ISOFIX mounting brackets.
i-Size child seats and vehicle seats
with i-Size approval are marked with
i-Size symbol, see illustration.
Top-tether fastening eyes
Top-tether fastening eyes are marked
with the symbol : for a child seat.
Seats, restraints
In addition to the ISOFIX mounting
brackets, fasten the Top-tether strap
to the Top-tether fastening eyes. The
strap must run between the two guide
rods of the head restraint.
ISOFIX child restraint systems of
universal category positions are
marked in the table by IUF 3 62.
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 child restraint systems
that comply with valid UN ECE
regulations. Check local laws and
regulations for mandatory use of child
restraint systems.
The following child restraints are
recommended for the following
weight classes:
Maxi Cosi Cabriofix for children up to
13 kg for group 0, group 0+ and Duo
Plus for children from 13 kg to 18 kg
in group I.
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.
61
Notice
Do not affix anything on the child
restraint systems and do not cover
them with any other materials.
A child restraint system which has

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

Secure loose objects in load
compartment to prevent sliding.
Do not allow the load to protrude
above the upper edge of the
backrests.
Do not place any objects on the
load compartment cover or the
instrument panel.
The load must not obstruct the
operation of the pedals, parking
brake and gear selector lever, or
hinder the freedom of movement
of the driver. Do not place any
unsecured objects in the interior.
Do not drive with an open load
compartment.
9 Warning
Always make sure that the load in
the vehicle is securely stowed.
Otherwise objects can be thrown

●
The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (see identification
plate 3 261) and the EC kerb
weight.
●
93
To calculate the payload, enter
the data for your vehicle in the
weights table at the front of this
manual.
The EC kerb weight includes
weights for the driver (68 kg),
luggage (7 kg) and all fluids (fuel
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 75 mph.
The permissible roof load is
75 kg for vehicles without roof
railing and 100 kg for vehicles
with roof railing. The roof load is
94

the combined weight of the roof
rack and the load.

9 Danger
Switching off the engine during
driving may cause loss of power
support for brake and steering
systems. Assistance systems and
airbag systems are disabled.
Lighting and brake lights will
extinguish. Therefore power down
the engine and ignition while
driving only when required in case
of emergency.
Starting the vehicle at low
temperatures
The start of the engine without
additional heaters is possible down to
-25 °С for diesel engines and -30 °C
for petrol engines. Required is an
engine oil with the correct viscosity,
the correct fuel, performed services
and a sufficiently charged battery.
With temperatures below -30 °C the
automatic transmission need a
warming phase of approx. five
minutes. The selector lever must be
in position P.
Automatic Starter Control
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.
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.
Overrun cut-off
The fuel supply is automatically cut off
during overrun, i.e. when the vehicle
is driven with a gear engaged but
accelerator pedal is released.
Depending on driving conditions, the
overrun cut-off may be deactivated.
Driving and operating
Stop-start system
Deactivation
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
fulfilled.

Driving and operating
Notice
In the event of an accident with
airbag deployment, the engine is
turned off automatically if the vehicle
comes to a standstill within a certain
time.
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
Automatic cleaning process
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 seven and twelve
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.
System requires manual cleaning
process
Under certain driving conditions, e.g.
short distances, the system cannot
clean itself automatically.
If cleaning of the filter is required and
if previous driving conditions did not
enable automatic cleaning, it will be
Driving and operating

Catalytic converter
The catalytic converter reduces the
amount of harmful substances in the
exhaust gases.
In the event of misfiring, uneven
engine running, a reduction in engine
performance or other unusual
problems, have the cause of the fault
rectified by a workshop as soon as
possible. In an emergency, driving
can be continued for a short period,
keeping vehicle speed and engine
speed low.
158
Driving and operating
AdBlue
Caution
General information
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 into the exhaust
system. The ammonia released by
the fluid reacts with nitrous gases
(NOx) from the exhaust and turns it
into nitrogen and water.
The designation of this fluid is
AdBlue®. It is a non-toxic, nonflammable, 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.
Avoid contact of the paintwork with
AdBlue.
In case of contact, rinse off with
water.
AdBlue freezes at a temperature of
approx. -11 °C. As the vehicle is
equipped with an AdBlue pre-heater,
the emissions reduction at low
temperatures is ensured. The AdBlue
pre-heater works automatically.
The typical AdBlue consumption is
approx. two litres per 600 miles, but
can also be higher depending on
driving behaviour (e.g. high load or
towing).
AdBlue tank
At a remaining volume of approx. five
litres, there is a liquid level switch.
Warning messages are displayed
only below that threshold. Tank
volume 3 271.
Level warnings
Depending on the calculated range of
AdBlue, different messages are
displayed in the Driver Information
Centre. The messages and the
restrictions are a legal requirement.
The first possible warning is AdBlue
Range: 1500 mi.
This warning will show up once briefly
with the calculated range. Driving is
possible without any restrictions.
The next warning level is entered with
a range below 1090 miles. The
message with the current range will
always be displayed when ignition is
switched on and needs to be
confirmed 3 116. Refill AdBlue before
entering the next warning level.
At an AdBlue range below 560 miles,
the following warning messages are
alternately displayed and cannot be
dismissed:
● AdBlue Low Refill Now
● Engine Restart Prevented in 560
miles.
Additionally, control indicator Y
flashes continuously.
Driving and operating
Notice
In case of high AdBlue consumption,
the Driver Information Centre may
display this warning without the
previous warning stages.
The last warning level is entered
when the AdBlue tank is empty.
Restart of the engine is not possible.
The following warning messages are
alternately displayed and cannot be
dismissed:
● AdBlue Empty Refill Now
● Engine Will Not Restart.
Additionally, control indicator Y
flashes continuously.
With active prevention of an engine
start, the following message will be
displayed:
Refill AdBlue To Start Vehicle.
The tank must be refilled completely
with AdBlue, otherwise restarting of
the engine is not possible.
High emission warnings
If the exhaust emission rises above a
certain value, warnings similar to the
range warnings will be displayed in
the Driver Information Centre.
Requests to have the exhaust system
checked and finally the
announcement of the prevention of
an engine restart are displayed.
These restrictions are a legal
requirement.
Consult a workshop for assistance.
Refilling AdBlue
Caution
Only use AdBlue that complies
with European standards
DIN 70 070 and ISO 22241-1.
Do not use additives.
Do not dilute AdBlue.
Otherwise the selective catalytic
reduction system could be
damaged.
159
Notice
Whenever a filling pump with a
nozzle for passenger cars is not
available at a filling station, use only
AdBlue bottles or canisters with a
sealed refill adapter for refilling, to
prevent splashback and overspill,
and in order to ensure that the fumes
from the tank are captured and do
not emerge. AdBlue in bottles or
canisters is available in many filling
stations and can be purchased e.g.
at Vauxhall dealers and other retail
outlets.
Since AdBlue has a limited
durability, check the date of expiry
before refilling.
Notice
The refilling of AdBlue is only
detected by the system when the
abovementioned liquid level switch
in the tank is activated.
In case AdBlue refill is not
successfully detected:
160
Driving and operating
1. Continuously drive the vehicle
for 10 minutes making sure that
vehicle speed is always higher
than 12 mph.
2. If AdBlue refill is detected
successfully, AdBlue supplydriven limitations will disappear.
If AdBlue refill is still not detected,
seek the assistance of a workshop.
If AdBlue must be refilled at
temperatures below -11 °C, the
refilling of AdBlue may not be
detected by the system. In this
event, park the vehicle in a space
with a higher ambient temperature
until AdBlue is liquefied.
The vehicle must be parked on a level
surface.
The filler neck for AdBlue is located
behind the fuel filler flap, which is
located at right rear side of the

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 3 111.
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.
165

In each driving mode Flex Ride
networks the following electronic
systems:
● Continuous Damping Control
● Accelerator Pedal Control
● Steering Control
● Automatic transmission
SPORT mode
The settings of the systems are
adapted to a sportier driving style:
● Damping of shock absorbers
reacts more stiffly to provide
better contact with the road
surface.
● The engine reacts more quickly
to the accelerator pedal.
● Steering support is reduced.
● Shift points of automatic
transmission occur later.
TOUR mode
Driving and operating
The settings of the systems are
adapted to a comfort driving style:
● Damping of shock absorbers
reacts more softly.
● Accelerator pedal reacts with
standard settings.
● Steering support is in standard
mode.
● Shift points of automatic
transmission occur in a comfort
mode.
Normal mode
All settings of the systems are
adapted to standard values.
Drive mode control
Within each manual selected driving
mode SPORT, TOUR or Normal, the
Drive Mode Control (DMC) detects
and analyses continuously the real
driving characteristics, responses by
the driver, and the active dynamic
state of the vehicle. If necessary, the
control unit of DMC automatically
changes the settings within the
selected driving mode or, when
recognising greater variations, the
driving mode is changed for the
length of variation.
If, for example, Normal mode is
selected and DMC detects a sporty
driving behaviour, DMC changes
several settings of the Normal mode
into sporty settings. The DMC
changes to SPORT mode in case of
very sporty driving behaviour.
If, for example, TOUR mode is
selected and whilst driving on a
winding road a sudden hard brake is
necessary, DMC will detect the
dynamic vehicle condition and
changes the settings for suspension
to SPORT mode to increase vehicle
stability.
When the driving characteristic or the
dynamic vehicle state returns to
former state, DMC will change the
settings to the preselected driving
mode.

Adaptive cruise control
Adaptive cruise control is an
enhancement to traditional cruise
control with the additional feature of
maintaining a certain distance behind
the vehicle ahead.
Adaptive cruise control automatically
decelerates the vehicle when
approaching a slower moving vehicle.
It then adjusts the vehicle speed to
follow the vehicle ahead at the
selected following distance. The
vehicle speed increases or decreases
to follow the vehicle in front, but will
Adaptive cruise control uses a radar
sensor to detect the vehicles ahead.
If no vehicle is detected in the driving
path, the adaptive cruise control will
behave like a traditional cruise
control.
For safety reasons, the system
cannot be activated before the brake
pedal has been depressed once after
switching on ignition. Activation in first
gear is not possible.

Adaptive cruise control is mainly
advised to be used on long straight
roads, e.g. highways or country roads
with steady traffic. Do not use the
system if it is not advisable to
maintain a constant speed.

Driver's attention
●
●
●
Use adaptive cruise control
carefully on bends or mountain
roads, as it can lose the vehicle
ahead and require time to detect
it again.
Do not use the system on
slippery roads as it can create
rapid changes in tyre traction
(wheel spinning), so that you
could lose control of the vehicle.
Do not use adaptive cruise
control during rain, snow or
heavy dirt, as the radar sensor
can be covered by a water film,
dust, ice or snow. This reduces or
completely suppresses the
visibility. In case of sensor
blockage, clean the sensor
cover.

The system's automatic brake
force does not permit hard
braking and the braking level
may not be sufficient to avoid a
collision.
After a sudden lane change, the
system needs a certain time to
detect the next preceding
vehicle. So if a new vehicle is
detected, the system may
accelerate instead of braking.
Adaptive cruise control does
ignore the oncoming traffic.
Adaptive cruise control does not
brake for pedestrians, animals,
very slow speed driving or
stopped vehicles.
Don't use adaptive cruise control
when towing a trailer.
The adaptive cruise control calculates
a predicted path based on the
centrifugal force. This predicted path
considers the current bend
characteristic, but cannot consider a
future bend change. The system may
lose the current vehicle ahead or
consider a vehicle which is not in the
actual lane. This can happen when
entering or exiting a bend or if the
bend gets stronger or weaker. If it no
longer detects any vehicle ahead,
then control indicator A will
extinguish.
If the centrifugal force is too high in a
bend, the system slows down the
vehicle slightly. This braking level is
not designed to avoid spinning off the
bend. The driver is responsible for
reducing the selected speed before

the set speed. For this reason,
decrease the set speed before the
exit or before the entry.
Vehicle path changes
Motorways
On motorways, adapt the set speed
to the situation and the weather.
Always consider that adaptive cruise
control has a limited visibility range, a
limited braking level and a certain
reaction time to verify if a vehicle is in
the driving path or not. Adaptive
cruise control may not be able to
brake the vehicle in time to avoid a
collision with a much slower vehicle or
after a lane change. This is
particularly true if driving fast or if the
visibility is reduced due to weather
conditions.
While entering or exiting a motorway,
adaptive cruise control may lose the
vehicle ahead and accelerate up to
If another vehicle enters your driving
path, adaptive cruise control will first
consider the vehicle when it is
completely in your path. Be ready to
take action and depress the brake
pedal, if you need to brake more
quickly.
Hill and trailer considerations
System performance on hills and
when towing a trailer depends on
vehicle speed, vehicle load, traffic
conditions and the road gradient. It
may not detect a vehicle in your path
while driving on hills. On steep hills,
you may have to use the accelerator
pedal to maintain your vehicle speed.
When going downhill, especially
when towing a trailer, you may have
to brake to maintain or reduce your
speed.
Note that applying the brake
deactivates the system. It is not
recommended to use adaptive cruise
control on steep hills especially when
towing a trailer.

speed) to calculate the probability of
a frontal collision.
Active emergency braking operates
automatically above walking speed,
provided that Auto collision
preparation setting is not deactivated
in the vehicle personalisation menu
3 124.
The system includes:
● brake preparation system
● emergency automatic braking
● forward looking brake assist
9 Warning
This system is not intended to
replace the driver responsibility of
driving the vehicle and looking
ahead. Its function is limited to
supplemental use only. The driver
shall continue to apply the brake
pedal as the driving situation
dictates.
186
Driving and operating
Brake preparation system
When approaching a vehicle ahead
so quickly that a collision is likely, the
brake preparation system slightly
pressurises the brakes. This reduces
the response time, when a manual or
automatic braking is requested.
The brake system is prepared so that
braking can occur more rapidly.
Emergency automatic braking
After the brake preparation and just
before the imminent collision, this
function automatically applies limited
braking to reduce the impact speed of
the collision.
Forward looking brake assist
In addition to brake preparation
system and emergency automatic
braking, the forward looking brake
assist function makes the brake assist
more sensitive. In this way,
depressing the brake pedal slightly
results immediately in a strong
braking. This function helps the driver
brake quicker and stronger before the
imminent collision.
9 Warning
Active emergency braking is not
designed to apply strong
autonomous braking or to avoid
automatically a collision. It is
designed to reduce the vehicle
speed before collision. It may not
react on stopped vehicles,
pedestrians or animals. After a
sudden lane change, the system
needs a certain time to detect the
next preceding vehicle.
The complete attention of the
driver is always required while
driving. The driver shall always be
ready to take action and apply the
brakes and steer to avoid
collisions. The system is designed
to work with all occupants wearing
their seat belts.
System limitations
The active emergency braking has
limited or no function during rain,
snow or heavy dirt, as the radar
sensor can be covered by a water
film, dust, ice or snow. In case of
sensor blockage, clean the sensor
cover.
In some seldom cases the active
emergency braking system may
provide a short automatic braking in
situations that seem to be
unnecessary, for instance due to
traffic signs in a curve or due to
vehicles in another lane. This is
acceptable operation, the vehicle
does not need service. Firmly apply
the accelerator pedal to override the
automatic braking.

signals and display indication.
It uses two different acoustic warning
signals for the front and rear
monitoring areas, each with a
different tone frequency. The signal
The system has four ultrasonic
parking sensors each in the rear and
front bumper.
Activation
When reverse gear is engaged, the
front and rear parking assist is ready

The system is also activated
automatically at a speed up to
7 mph.
An illuminated LED in the parking
assist button r indicates that the
system is ready to operate.
If r is switched off within an ignition
cycle, the front parking assist is
deactivated. If vehicle speed has
exceeded 15 mph beforehand,
parking assist will be reactivated
when speed drops below 7 mph.
Indication
The system warns the driver with
acoustic signals against potentially
hazardous obstacles behind and in
front of the vehicle.
188
Driving and operating
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 rear and
front obstacles is displayed by
changing distance lines in the Driver
Information Centre 3 116 or,
depending on the version, on the InfoDisplay 3 121.
Rear obstacles are indicated
acoustically and visually at the same
time.
Front obstacles are indicated visually
first. At distances less than 80 cm an
acoustic signal also sounds.
The distance indication can be
inhibited by vehicle messages with a
higher priority. After dismissing the

Fuel
Fuel for petrol engines
Only use unleaded fuel that complies
with European standard EN 228 or
E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent.
The engine is capable of running with
fuel that contains up to 10% ethanol
(e.g. named E10).
Use fuel with the recommended
octane rating. A lower octane rating
can reduce engine power and torque
and slightly increases fuel
consumption.
Caution
Deactivation
The system is deactivated by
pressing ), the LED in the button
extinguishes.
At speeds below 35 mph the system
is inoperable.
Do not use fuel or fuel additives
that contain metallic compounds
such as manganese-based
additives. This may cause engine
damage.
198
Driving and operating
Caution
Caution
Use of fuel that does not comply to
EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or
equivalent can lead to deposits or
engine damage.
Use of fuel that does not comply to
EN 590 or similar can lead to
engine powerloss, increased wear
or engine damage and may affect
your warranty.
Caution
Use of fuel with a lower octane
rating than the lowest possible
rating could lead to uncontrolled
combustion and engine damage.
The engine specific requirements
regarding octane rating are given in
the engine data overview 3 266. A
country specific label at the fuel filler
flap can supersede the requirement.
Fuel for diesel engines
Only use diesel fuel that complies
with EN 590.
In countries outside the European
Union use Euro-Diesel fuel with a
sulphur concentration below 50 ppm.
Fuel selector
Do not use marine diesel oils, heating
oils, Aquazole and similar dieselwater emulsions. Diesel fuels must
not be diluted with fuels for petrol
engines.
Fuel for natural gas
operation
Use natural gas with a methane
content of approx. 78 - 99%. L-gas
(low) has approx. 78 - 87% and H-gas
(high) has approx. 87 - 99%. Biogas
with the same methane content can
also be used if it has been chemically
prepared and desulphurised.
Only use natural gas or biogas that
complies with DIN 51624.
Liquid gas or LPG must not be used.
Pressing Y switches between petrol
and natural gas operation. Switching
is not possible at high loads (e.g.
powerful acceleration, driving at full
throttle). The LED status shows the
current operating mode.

Driving and operating
As soon as the natural gas tank is
empty, petrol operation is
automatically engaged until the
ignition is switched off.
If the natural gas tank is not refuelled,
the system must be manually
switched to petrol operation before
the engine is restarted. This will
prevent damage to the catalytic
converter (overheating caused by
irregular fuel supply).
If the selector switch is operated
several times within a short time, a
switchover inhibitor is activated. The
engine remains in the current
operating mode. The inhibitor
remains active until the ignition is
switched off.
A slight loss of power and torque can
be expected during petrol operation.
You must therefore adapt your driving
style (e.g. during overtaking
manoeuvres) and high vehicle loads
(e.g. towing loads) accordingly.
Every six months run the petrol tank
down until control indicator Y
illuminates, then refuel. This is
necessary to maintain fuel quality as
well as system function necessary for
petrol operation.
Fill the tank completely at regular
intervals to prevent corrosion in the
tank.
Fuel for liquid gas operation
Liquid gas is known as LPG
(Liquefied Petroleum Gas) or under
its French name GPL (Gaz de Pétrole
Liquéfié). LPG is also known as
Autogas.
LPG consists mainly of propane and
butane. The octane rating is between
105 and 115, depending on the
butane proportion. LPG is stored as a
liquid at a pressure of approximately
five to ten bar.
The boiling point depends on the
pressure and the mixing ratio. At
ambient pressure, it is between
-42 °C (pure propane) and -0.5 °C
(pure butane).
199
Caution
The system works at an ambient
temperature of approx. -8 °C to
100 °C.
Full functioning of the LPG system
can only be guaranteed with liquid
gas which complies with the minimum
requirements of DIN EN 589.
Fuel selector
Pressing LPG switches between
petrol and liquid gas operation as
soon as the required parameters
(coolant temperature, gas

conditions allow.
As soon as the liquid gas tank is
empty, petrol operation is
automatically engaged until the
ignition is switched off.
When switching automatically
between petrol or gas operation, a
brief delay of engine tractive power
may be noticeable.
Every six months, run the petrol tank
down until control indicator I
illuminates, then refuel. This helps
maintain fuel quality and system
function for petrol operation.
Fill the tank completely at regular
intervals to prevent corrosion in the
tank.
Faults and remedies
If gas mode is not possible, check the
following:
● Is there enough liquid gas
present?
● Is there enough petrol present for
starting?
Due to extreme temperatures in
combination with the gas
composition, it may take slightly
longer before the system switches
from petrol to gas mode.
In extreme situations, the system may
also switch back to petrol mode if the
minimum requirements are not
fulfilled. If conditions allow, it may be
possible to manually switch back to
liquid gas operation.
Seek the assistance of a workshop in
the event of all other faults.
Caution
Repairs and adjustments may only
be made by trained specialists in
order to maintain the safety and
warranty on the LPG system.
Liquid gas is given a particular odour
(odorised) so that any leaks can be
detected easily.

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 version
respectively applicable), 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
equipment may result in slightly
higher results than the stated
consumption and CO2 figures.
Furthermore, fuel consumption is
dependent on personal driving style
as well as road and traffic conditions.
Driving and operating
Natural gas
The fuel consumption information
was obtained using reference fuel
G20 (methane proportion
99 - 100 mol%) under prescribed
driving conditions. When using
natural gas with a lower proportion of
methane, the fuel consumption can
differ from the specified values.
Trailer hitch
General information
Only use towing equipment that has
been approved for your vehicle.
Vehicles with natural gas engines
require special towing equipment.
Entrust retrofitting of towing
equipment to a workshop. It may be
necessary to make changes that
affect the cooling system, heat
shields or other equipment.
The bulb outage detection function for
trailer brake light cannot detect a
partial bulb outage. E.g. in case of
4x 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.
207
Driving characteristics and
towing tips
Before attaching a trailer, lubricate
the coupling ball. However, do not do
so if a stabiliser, which acts on the
coupling ball, is being used to reduce
snaking movements.
For trailers with low driving stability
and caravan trailers with a permitted
gross vehicle weight of more than
1300 kg the use of a stabiliser is
strongly recommended when driving
above 50 mph.
If the trailer starts snaking, drive more
slowly, do not attempt to correct the
steering and brake sharply if
necessary.
When driving downhill, drive in the
same gear as if driving uphill and
drive at a similar speed.
Adjust tyre pressure to the value
specified for full load 3 272.
208
Driving and operating
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 12%.
The permissible trailer load applies
up to the specified incline and at 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 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
3 261.
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.
Notice
Engines B20DTH and B20DTJ:
Depending on the equipment the
maximum permissible vertical
coupling load can be 75 kg or 60 kg.
Always aim for the maximum load,
especially in the case of heavy
trailers. The vertical coupling load
should never fall below 25 kg.
Rear axle load
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
60 kg, the gross vehicle weight rating
may be exceeded by 60 kg. If the
permissible rear axle load is
exceeded, a maximum speed of
60 mph applies.

236
Vehicle care
The tyre pressure information label
on the front left or right 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 3 266.
2. Identify the respective tyre.
The tyre pressure tables show all
possible tyre combinations 3 272.
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 appropriate setting on the
page Tyre load in the Driver
Information Centre, 3 116.
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 real tyre pressure. A cooled down
tyre will show a decreased value,
which does not indicate an air leak.
Vehicle care
Tyre pressure monitoring
system
237
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.
The tyre pressure monitoring system
checks the pressure of all four tyres
once a minute when vehicle speed
exceeds a certain limit.
Caution
Tyre pressure monitoring system
warns only about low tyre pressure
condition and does not replace
regular tyre maintenance by the
driver.
Select the menu by the buttons on the
turn signal lever.
All wheels must be equipped with
pressure sensors and the tyres must
have the prescribed pressure.
If w illuminates, stop as soon as
possible and inflate the tyres as
recommended 3 272.
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.
The current tyre pressures can be
shown in the Driver Information
Centre.
A detected low tyre pressure
condition is indicated by control
indicator w 3 114.
Select Tyre pressure page under
Vehicle Information Menu ?3 116.
If w flashes for 60-90 seconds and
then illuminates continuously, there is
a fault in the system. Consult a

After inflating, some driving may be
required to update the tyre pressure
values in the Driver Information
Centre. During this time w may
illuminate.
238
Vehicle care
If w illuminates at lower temperatures
and extinguishes after some driving,
this could be an indicator for
approaching a low tyre pressure
condition. Check tyre pressure.
Vehicle messages 3 122.
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 temporary spare wheel is not
equipped with pressure sensors. The
tyre pressure monitoring system is
not operational for these wheels.
Control indicator w illuminates. For
the 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 monitoring system sensors
must be dismounted and serviced.
For the screwed sensor: replace
valve core and sealing ring. For
clipped sensor: replace complete
valve stem.

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
Vehicle care
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.
There are two minutes to match the
first wheel position, and five minutes
overall to match all four wheel
positions. If it takes longer, the
matching process stops and must be
restarted.
The tyre pressure sensor matching

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.
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.
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
remains the same.
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.
If the wheel covers and tyres used are
not factory approved, the tyres must
not have a rim protection ridge.
Vehicle care

253
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.
Wash and wax your vehicle regularly.
When using automatic vehicle
washes, select a programme that
includes waxing.
Bird droppings, dead insects, resin,
pollen and the like should be cleaned
off immediately, as they contain
aggressive constituents which can
cause paint damage.
254
Vehicle care
If using a vehicle wash, comply with
the vehicle wash manufacturer's
instructions. The windscreen wiper
and rear window wiper must be
switched off. Remove antenna and
external accessories such as roof
racks etc.
If you wash your vehicle by hand,
make sure that the insides of the
wheel housings are also thoroughly
rinsed out.
Clean edges and folds on opened
doors and the bonnet as well as the
areas they cover.
Clean bright metal mouldings with a
cleaning solution approved for
aluminium to avoid damages.
Caution
Always use a cleaning agent with
a pH value of four to nine.
Do not use cleaning agents on hot
surfaces.
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.
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 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.
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.
Vehicle care
Glass panel
Never clean with solvents or abrasive
agents, fuels, aggressive media
(e.g. paint cleaner, acetonecontaining solutions etc.), acidic or
highly alkaline media or abrasive
pads.
Wheels and tyres
Do not use high-pressure jet
cleaners.
Clean rims with a pH-neutral wheel
cleaner.
Rims are painted and can be treated
with the same agents as the body.
Paintwork damage
Rectify minor paintwork damage with
a touch-up pen before rust forms.
Have more extensive damage or rust
areas repaired by a workshop.
Underbody
Some areas of the vehicle underbody
have a PVC undercoating while other
critical areas have a durable
protective wax coating.
After the underbody is washed, check
the underbody and have it waxed if
necessary.
Bitumen/rubber materials could
damage the PVC coating. Have
underbody work carried out by a
workshop.
Before and after winter, wash the
underbody and have the protective
wax coating checked.
Liquid gas system
9 Danger
Liquid gas is heavier than air and
can collect in sink points.
Take care when performing work
at the underbody in a pit.
For painting work and when using a
drying booth at a temperature above
60 °C, the liquid gas tank must be
removed.
Do not make any modifications to the
liquid gas system.
255
Towing equipment
Do not clean the coupling ball bar with
a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
Rear carrier system
Clean the rear carrier system with a
steam-jet or high-pressure jet cleaner
at least once a year.
Operate the rear carrier system
periodically if not in regular use, in
particular during winter.
Air shutter
Clean the shutter system in the front
bumper to maintain correct
functionality.
Interior care
Interior and upholstery
Only clean the vehicle interior,
including the instrument panel fascia
and panelling, with a dry cloth or
interior cleaner.
256
Vehicle care
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.
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.

European service intervals
International service intervals
Maintenance of your vehicle is
required every 20,000 miles or after
1 year, whichever occurs first, unless
otherwise indicated in the service
display.
A shorter service interval can be valid
for severe driving behaviour, e.g. for
taxis and police vehicles.
The European service intervals are
valid for the following countries:
Maintenance of your vehicle is
required every 10,000 miles or after
1 year, whichever occurs first, unless
otherwise indicated in the service
display.
Severe operating conditions exist if
one or more of the following
circumstances occur frequently: Cold
starting, stop and go operation, trailer
operation, mountain driving, driving
on poor and sandy road surfaces,
increased air pollution, presence of
airborne sand and high dust content,
Service information
258
Service and maintenance
driving at high altitude and large
variations of temperature. Under
these severe operating conditions,
certain service work may be required
more frequently than the regular
service interval.
The international service intervals are
valid for the countries which are not
listed in the European service
intervals.
Service display 3 106.
Confirmations
Confirmation of service is recorded in
the Service and Warranty Booklet.
The date and mileage is completed
with the stamp and signature of the
servicing workshop.
Make sure that the Service and
Warranty Booklet is completed
correctly as continuous proof of
service is essential if any warranty or
goodwill claims are to be met, and is
also a benefit when selling the
vehicle.
Service interval with remaining
engine oil life duration
The service interval is based on
several parameters depending on
usage.
The service display lets you know
when to change the engine oil.

9 Warning
Operating materials are
hazardous and could be
poisonous. Handle with care. Pay
attention to information given on
the containers.
Engine oil
Engine oil is identified by its quality
and its viscosity. Quality is more
important than viscosity when
selecting which engine oil to use. The
oil quality ensures e.g. engine
cleanliness, wear protection and oil
ageing control, whereas viscosity
grade gives information on the oil's
thickness over a temperature range.
Service and maintenance
Dexos is the newest engine oil quality
that provides optimum protection for
gasoline and diesel engines. If it is
unavailable, engine oils of other listed
qualities have to be used.
Recommendations for gasoline
engines are also valid for
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG),
Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) and
Ethanol (E85) fuelled engines.
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 263.
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
3 263.
Additional engine oil additives
The use of additional engine oil
additives could cause damage and
invalidate the warranty.
Engine oil viscosity grades
The SAE viscosity grade gives
information of the thickness of the oil.
Multigrade oil is indicated by two
figures, 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 3 263.
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
259
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.
Washer fluid
Use only washer fluid approved for
the vehicle to prevent damage of
wiper blades, paintwork, plastic and
rubber parts. Consult a workshop.

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
280
●
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 optimising 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 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.
