Driving through water

Driving through water

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

Engine damage can occur if water enters the air filter.

In an emergency, the vehicle can be driven through water to a maximum depth of 200 mm and at a maximum speed of 10 km/h (6 mph). Extra caution should be exercised when driving through flowing water.

When driving in water, maintain a low speed and do not stop the vehicle. After driving through water, and as soon as it is safe to do so:
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.
