Special
driving
situations
Driving
uphill
and

When
driving
uphill,
downhill,
or at
high
alti-
tudes,
note
the
following
information:
Drive
slowly
and
carefully.
Do
not
try
to
turn
around
if
you
cannot
safely
drive
on
an
incline
or
hill.
Instead,
drive
in
re-
verse.
When
driving
down
hills,
you
can
activate
the
hill
descent
control
if
you press
the
brake
pedal
while
driving
in
“D”
gear.
The
automatic
trans-
mission
will
select
a
gear
suitable
for
driving
down
the
hill
and
will
attempt
to
maintain
the
speed
at
which
the
vehicle
was
traveling
at
the
time
the
brake pedal
was
pressed.
Press
the
brake
pedal
if
necessary.
The
hill
descent
con-
trol will
switch
off
once
the
hill
levels
out
or
you press
the
accelerator
pedal.
Utilize
the
engine
