CAR CARE
EBA – EMERGENCY BRAKE ASSIST
Washing by hand is gentler to the paintwork
than an automatic car wash. The paintwork
is also more sensitive when it is new. For this
reason, handwashing is recommended during
the first few months with a new car. Use clean
water and a washing sponge. Remember that
dirt and grit can scratch the paint.
Emergency Brake Assistance helps to
increase brake force and so reduce braking
distance. EBA is activated when the driver
brakes suddenly. When EBA is activated the
brake pedal depresses a little further than
usual.
– Press (hold) down the brake pedal for as
long as necessary – all braking ceases if the
pedal is released.
