NOTICE TO OWNERS OF UTILITY TYPE VEHICLES
Before you drive your vehicle, please read this owner’s guide carefully. Your vehicle is not a passenger car. In vehicles of this type, incorrect operation may result in unpredictable handling behavior. Be sure to read Control Trac – Automatic Four–Wheel Drive System (if equipped) in the Driving chapter as well as the special “Four Wheeling” supplement included with AWD and 4WD vehicles.
BREAKING-IN YOUR VEHICLE
There are no particular breaking-in rules for your vehicle. Simply avoid driving too briskly during the first 1,600 km (1,000 miles) of driving. Vary speeds frequently. This is necessary to give the moving parts a chance to break in. If possible, you should avoid full use of the brakes for the first 1,600 km (1,000 miles). From 1,600 km (1,000 miles) onwards you can gradually increase the performance of your vehicle up to the permitted maximum speeds.
