Driving through water

CAUTIONS:
Drive through water in an emergency only, and not as part of normal driving.

Х Depress the brake pedal lightly and check that full brake function is achieved.

Х Check that the horn works.

Х Check that the vehicle's lights are fully operational.

Х Check the power assistance of the steering system.
