1.20. An automatic transmission

After start of the engine and before inclusion of transfers press a brake, differently the car will "creep". Do not press simultaneously an accelerator and brake pedal. "D" it is possible to go by position practically always.

By soft pressing of a pedal of an accelerator there is an early switching on transfers to the economical expense of fuel. Manual switching is necessary only in exceptional cases. "2" and "1" – only if you wish to avoid switching on higher transfer or at braking by the engine.

As soon as the road situation allows, switch on "D".

Positions of the lever of switching Р, R and N

Р = a parking. Forward wheels are blocked. Only at the standing car and the included manual brake.

R = a backing. To include only at the standing car.

N = neutral position and idling.

In position "Р" or "N" at the tightened manual brake start the engine. At a gear change gas not to press.

Step "D". Long position for normal conditions of driving on transfers with 1 on 3.

After engine and inclusion start "D" the transmission always works in a mode of economic driving.

Step "2". Position for driving on 1–2 transfers, for example, on a mountain streamer, thus a box is not switched to 3rd transfer.

Step "1". Position for the maximum brake effort, for example, on abrupt descents; the box is not switched to transfers above 1st.


Kickdown – sharp pressing against the stop on an accelerator pedal.

Pressing of a pedal of an accelerator against the stop: at speed below certain value the box is switched to lower transfer. It is applied to acceleration with use of a total power of the engine.


To shake got stuck in sand, a dirt, snow or in a ditch the car, it is possible to switch at slightly pressed pedal of an accelerator a control lever between "D" and "R". To hold frequency of rotation of a shaft of the engine as it is possible more low and to avoid sharp pressing an accelerator pedal.

The way described above to apply only in exceptional cases.

Exact maneuvering

For exact maneuvering, for example, at a parking, arrival in garage, etc., it is possible to use effect of slipping on biases. Speed of movement to regulate a lung отпусканием brake pedals.

Not to involve at all simultaneously a gas and brake pedal.

Additional braking by the engine

For use of brake functions of the engine at descent in due time to include "2" or if that is demanded by a situation, "1" step.

Especially effectively brake action at a step "1". If "1" it is included at too high speed, the box will continue to work on 2nd transfer until when, for example, at the expense of braking, the point of transition to 1st transfer will be reached.


The included step at a stop with working engine can be kept.

At a stop on slopes necessarily involve a lay brake or press a brake pedal – do not keep the car on a place by increase in number of turns at the included transfer.

At long parking, for example, in a stopper or on moving, switch off the engine.

Before an exit from the car at first include a lay brake, then switch on "Р" and take the ignition key.
