All vehicles

CAUTIONS:
Do not engage reverse gear when the vehicle is moving. This can cause damage to the transmission.

Do not apply any undue lateral force to the gear lever when changing from 5th to 4th gear. This could lead to the inadvertent selection of 2nd gear and can cause damage to the transmission.
